ProForm XP 110 Elliptical resistance won't adjust

Resistance on my Pro Form 10 Elliptical Excersizer will not adjust. I used to be able to hear adjustments but now there is no noise when I change resistance seetings on the console. I think the motor that adjusts the location of the C-magnet has stopped functioning. How difficult is the motor to replace and what is the likelyhood motor replacement will fix the issue?

    Mine recently started doing the same thing. The computer still says it's changing gears but the resistance doesn't get any harder and I also do not hear the changing of gears. I hope this is an easy fix.

1) tight the bolts tension for magnet and clean very well. and proof..if the fail
2) go to test the magnet, use again the magnet from your refrigerator magnet, for attraction and repulsion. If do not pass the TEST replace the magnet in any Hardware such home depot, etc.

The resistance control broke on my pro form xp 400 after 4 years of good use. A replacement console sells for $180. I just popped off the plastic rotary control and behind it was the reostat stem which can be turned with two fingers. Now I have resistance control again. Happy days are here again!

Open the rear part where the "guts" are. The magnet will be stuck against the wheel that turns when you pedal because the cable that the resistance motor pulls to remove the tension will have too much slack in it. The cable probably came off of the pulley wheel that is used to providing the necessary tension to pull the magnet off of the wheel.

To get the case off, simply unhook the right side pedal, remove the 4 bolts holding on the crank thing to remove it, then using a philips head screwdriver, remove the screws in the screw holes on the case cover. Be sure to remove the one screw on the other side near the front in order to allow the front part to "unsnap".

How to use the Proform 515S EKG Elliptical?


To mount the elliptical trainer, firmly hold the handlebars or the T-handle and carefully step onto the pedal that is in the lowest position. Next, step onto the other pedal. Push the pedals until they begin to move with a continuous motion. Note: The pedal disks can turn in either direction. It is recommended that you turn the pedal disks in the direction shown below; however, to give variety to your exercise, you may choose to turn the pedal disks in the opposite direction.
To dismount the elliptical trainer, allow the pedals to come to a complete stop. CAUTION: The elliptical trainer does not have a free wheel; the pedals will continue to move until the flywheel stops. When the pedals are stationary, step off the highest pedal first. Then, step off the lowest pedal.
As you exercise, you can adjust the resistance of the pedals with the resistance knob on the console. To increase the resistance, turn the knob clockwise; to decrease the resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise.

Have purchased a used Pro Form 900 Cardio Cross Trainer


If you can hear the adjustment motor running the problem could be related to two things:
1. Broken or stretched resistance adjustment cable.
2. Broken bracket for the magnet return spring.
If the resistance is on maximum all the time the second issue is most likely the cause.
