My display on my York 3100 elliptical cross trainer comes on but doesn't seem to work

The display comes on, but it doesn't pick up movement so you can track speed or distance?

SOURCE: Schwinn 431 Elliptical doesn't register rpm's, distance, etc.

I have this same problem and called the customer service. The problem is that the rpm sensor is not working. It could be the sensor or something else. They had me check the connections first for the wiring harness at the top and middle and then sent me parts to work on the inside where I have my problem. I am still working on mine because the magnet was installed on the wrong side of the flywheel. Hope you don't have this issue.

Display not working. hasn't been used for over a year, is it the battery

The battery is definitely the #1 culprit in this situation. When you use the machine, you actually help keep the battery charged. When the machine is not in use, it gradually loses its ability to hold a charge.

Do elliptical trainers have adjustment qualities?

Yes. Most trainers have adjustments for elevation. The elevation feature on an elliptical doesn't make the workout harder; instead it changes the emphasis so that the higher the slant, the more your glutes and hamstrings will be worked out; whereas the lower positions emphasize more on your quads and calves.

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.
