Treadmill control panel not functioning properly

I own a Pro-Form 540 Treadmill which is now out of warrenty and the electronic keypad control panel is not functioning properly.
Sometimes I can't turn the machine on at all and at other times one or two of the many keypad functions will be responsive.
I suspect there might be a fairly simple solution to this problem and would like to explore this possibilty before spending the $500 or so that the company says it will cost to replace the entire control panel.
Thanks for your help.

The best solution is to buy a better quality treadmill. I own a ProForm 500i that is on it's way to the bulk waste dump. I bought it used from someone who never used it and this treadmill doesn't have more than 170 miles on it, which is really not that much. The board is completely out on this thing. This piece of **** seems to be designed as an entry level, low cost treadmill for those aspiring to get into a routine, and not a true workhorse piece of fitness gear.

Control panel lights up but not responsive on any function

The proform console sometimes freezes up and refuses to take the input from the user. Replace the console. The manufacturer do not sell parts for this console.

I hae a Pro Form 540 Iteracive Trainer treadmill. When the key is inserted, the treadmill cuts on but the control panel doesn't seem to work when you touch start. I waited and cut it off and went...


I will advice you try re-calibrate your treadmill, follow the procedure below to re-calibrate it,

Step 1 Stand on the side rails of the treadmill for safety purposes. Remove the safety key. Step 2 Press and hold the two incline buttons. The incline buttons are blue and on the left side of the display. Hold the up and down button simultaneously. Release the buttons when the display reads "Calibration."
Step 3 Press the green start button located either above or below the large, red stop button (depending on your model). Stay on the side rails as the treadmill belt begins to move. Both the speed and incline should go through their full range from lowest to highest, and then back down again.
Step 4 Repeat the process if the display does not read "Calibration Successful."

My control board does not work...buttons cant be pressed to engage the treadmill? I have a Pro-Form cross walk>

Remove the console from the treadmill and remove the back
remove and replace the ribbon cables that run from the keypads to the control board (they are flat plastic strips that push into the board).
remove and replace all the connections on the console
reattach the console and calibrate by doing the following:
1. With the key off press the speed + and stop buttons at the same time and hold
2. place the key on and release the buttons
3. press the stop key once
4. press the speed up til it reaches 85
5. if your max speed is 10 mph then it should read about 9.8-10.2

If the keys will not work then the console is bad and would need replaced.

My fans don't turn on when I press the button. Has anyone else had this problem?

This problem occurs even in the $7,000.00 units. My suggestion is unplug the treadmill then remove the upper console. Remove the back panel find the two wire that come form the fan motor get a 9v battery plug it into the motor and see if it runs. If it does, then you have a function pad problem or upper electronics problem ( I tend to lean towards the function pad ) if it doesn't then replace fan motor

Problems with my pro form 540 treadmill

So after reading the post from EricLaw, I wanted to clarify his solution because it also worked for me. When you open up the console, you will see the membrane (it actually says membrane inside very small) and the connecting wires to the membrane is actually a wide flat plastic with some stripes embedded in the clear plastic which can be easily detached from the membrane (looks like masking tape w/ stripes). These stripes are how the touch pad on the console talk to the membrane. I then took scissors and cut slits between each stripe (cutting only the clear plastic part of the plastic tape) so that I could leave a strip out of the membrane. I played around leaving different strips out until the right strip was left out. If I recall correctly, I left the 5th strip out and the key pad now works entirely EXCEPT the speed 1 and 4 which were the only keys working until I did this. Hope this helps.

I have a Sears Pro Form 730si. The treadmill

I believe E4 on ths 730si means that the speed of the motor the sensor is detecting is greater than the set speed. E2 would be the opposite. I believe there is a way to calibrate the speed. Look at the smaller motor controller board.
