My opinion is that the problem is probably a faulty ribbon cable. Proform is infamous for this. I have listed a solution below. The cost is minimal, but it's a real headache. If you are ambitious you might want to save the $300+ that it will cost for a new control panel. Others will recognize that it's just not worth the hassle. My opinion is that the contacts are worn on the ribbon cablePro-Form 540S. - 2.gif that is located behind or near the decline button. People experiencing this problem have also reported that speed control is inoperable, stop button will not work, and start button was not functioning properly. Remove the cable by removing the retaining latch. Then you'll need to carefully apply conductive coating to the worn ribbon cable leads. This is a dual-sided ribbon cable so you'll need to apply this coating to the appropriate side for each contact. Let it dry for 12hours. Carefully trim any excess of conductive coating on the new tracks with an exacto knife so they are nice and straight and adequately seperated. Be very careful not to cut through the ribbon tape. Just use enough pressure to trim the applied coating. When applying the conductive coating use as small an applicator as possible like a pointed q-tip or a tooth pick to keep from spilling onto the adjacent tracks. This is very tedious task.

None of the buttons work other than the #1 and #4 button. All the other buttons don't work. And the only way to shut the machine on and off is to insert and pull out the key.

Pro-Form 540s. Display lights up. Why does nothing work?


Hi There, after looking up this unit, I would say you have a failed lower control board. You can possibly get an exchange for this control board by emailing gregATbuyfitnessrepairpartsDOTcom for more info. These Icon controllers are 99 exchange cost, you get a good one sent, you replace the failed unit and send it back to them as a core return. Good Luck!

I have a Pro-Form 400 CT Treadmill, The console light flickers and gets dim. Can I repair this?


Dear Sir:

I will try help you, please use the patience, carefully, and basic tools
1. Power

o 1

Ensure that the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surge suppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure the services of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proform treadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord.

o 2

Insert the safety key fully into the display. Treadmills with keys are designed not to turn on without the safety key in place.

o 3

Find the circuit breaker on the front of the frame and make sure it is not tripped. The circuit breaker is a vertical switch on the 540S and a horizontal switch on the 540 Interactive Trainer. Press it to the "Reset" position, which will be labeled.
2. Reed Switch

o 1

Unplug the treadmill and remove the safety key.

o 2

Move the upright base of the treadmill down with the help of another person and lift the uprights so that you can get to the underside of the console. Use a Phillips screwdriver with at least a 5-inch shaft to remove the screws. There are five hood screws on the 540 Interactive trainer and four screws on the 540S.

o 3

Remove the motor hood to get to the small reed switch by pivoting the hood off the frame. Find the reed switch and magnet, which are on the left side of the pulley for both models.

o 4

Turn the pulley with your hand until the reed switch aligns with the magnet. There should be 1/8-inch gap between the two. Fix the distance so that it is 1/8 inch by loosening the reed switch screw and sliding it to the correct distance. Tighten the screw.

o 5

Reverse the directions to put the hood back on and the treadmill upright in the original position.

With this you will fix. See the Videos:

Ifit treadmill will not incline but everything else works, how do I fix the incline


You may need to calibrate the incline. Do this with the following procedure.
Safety key out
press the stop and speed up buttons at the same time while inserting the safety key. (you are now in diagnostics)
press the stop button one time only.
now press the incline up button (incline motor should start moving up)
incline will go up to the top and then all the way to the bottom. when it gets done you can remove the key. Reinsert the key and you should be operating normally.
Good luck Tim
