Proform vr900 recumbent tension not working

I bought a used proform vr900 recumbent bike and the tension does not seem to work. I do not have the manual and was wondering if there is anyway to fix this or if I just wasted my money.

Thanks
Lisa

    Manual is pointless as it does not even mention tension problems.

Here is a link to the owners manual. If this is correct the fix should be relatively easy

No tension on pedals for nordic track trl 625 recumbent bike


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.

Older proform crosstrainer ( recumbent bike ) just assembled from box and when I pedal grating sound from pedal area?


1

Remove the screws or bolts securing the ends of the pedals to the crank axles. Slide the ends of the pedals off the axles. Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right disc shields to the base unit. Pull or pry the disc shields off the base unit and set them aside.

2

Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right side shields to the base unit. Detach the side shields and set them aside. Examine the interior of the base unit and locate the drive belt.

3

Pull the drive belt free of the crank pulley, flywheel and any other pulleys. Discard the old drive belt and install a new belt in its place. Turn the crank axles by hand to confirm that the belt will turn smoothly when the device is in use.
B) Lubricate your FITNESS BIKE. very important.

Bought a proform ekg treadmill from a lady on line


Mine did the same thing. I had to take the display apart and clean the contacts on the circuitboard that are underneath the buttons. After I put it back together it has worked perfectly. Mone came from a house where the people smoked and it was the nicotine and tar that was in the smoke that had seeped inside and cause it to stop functioning properly. Well I guess thats why they sold it to me. They likely were not using it anyway. Well I hope this helps

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.

Treadmill stops running


I had simillar problem. I have proform 830 QT. My trademill stops after 10 minutes of work out. Everything shuts down and the circuit breaker pops out.

Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.

Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.

Back ground:- Contact proform customer service at 1-888-533-1333 (http://www.iconservice.com/proform/faq_tread.html) and buy the treadmil cleaning kit or lubricant kit which comes with a wand for easy application. It may cost you 35 dollars including shipping. If you need to fix your treadmil right away, use NAPA silicon spray 8300. Proform actually tells do not use it as it may damage your belt. However the specialst who came to fix my treadmill just sprayed it and collected 100 dollars. When I called proform they told me lubricating will fix it and its my mistake to not trust them. I guess they knew exactly what they were saying.
