Follow the next steps and fix it. God bless you

Check your owner's manual for diagrams and definitions. You'll need this information when you put the elliptical back together. You'll also want definitions in case you need to call the customer support line for assistance.


  • 2 Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.


  • 3 Consider that if the foot pedals are attached with bolts, any slipping can be fixed with a quick use of the wrench. But if the foot pedals are damaged or breaking, order new foot pedals (see Resources below) rather than run the risk of a pedal breaking while you're on the machine.
  • 4 Check the hand bars. While not all people use them, as they can elevate your heart rate by up to 20 percent, they can become worn, too. While loose hand bars typically need a simple tightening of the bolt, be sure not to overtighten as the bolts can break.
  • 5 Know that if the axis is bent, it's likely you need a new machine. The axis is the central alignment of the elliptical. If the machine was used by a person who is over the maximum weight limit, it can be bent or damaged. It's not an easy fix and a better idea is to upgrade to a sturdier machine.

    We folded the Proform 500 LE Elliptical and moved it. Now we are unable to unfold the elliptical with the latch button. Suggestions?


    HOW TO FOLD AND UNFOLD THE ELLIPTICAL

    When the elliptical is not in use, the frame can be folded out of the way. First, lift the latch under each pedal arm, and lift the pedal arms off the adjustment sleeves on the crank arms.

    Next, raise the pedal arms until they touch the magnets on the upper body legs; the magnets will hold the pedal arms in place.

    Then, hold the handle and lift the frame until it locks in a vertical position. To use the elliptical, first hold the handle, press the latch button, and lower the frame.

    Next, pull the pedal arms off the magnets on the upper body legs.

    Then, lift the latches under the pedal arms, and set the pedal arms on the adjustment sleeves on the crank arms.

    Release the latches, and make sure that the pedal arms are securely connected to the adjustment sleeves.

    Will be attaching a link to your manual also

    Adjust the magnet with bolt attached there are loose, tight very well and ready the resistance is the main parts that need repair,
    However if the resistance is faulty, you must test again the magnet from the refrigerator by attracting or repeled, if do not pass this test replace it buying small cheaping from home depot or similar.

    In what way is an elliptical trainer different from a treadmill?


    Treadmills have a moving belt while elliptical trainers have two foot pedals guiding movement - making it more controlled and safer. Elliptical trainers also have handles, in which the user has the option to move their arms in opposition to their legs to better control movement.

    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.
