Question about Proform PFTL79807 - 850 W/ Gamefit Elliptical

1 Answer

Plugged in a wrong adaptor and my elliptical started smoking

My elliptical started smoking after I plugged in the wrong size adaptor.
I've tried my elliptical numerous times and the whole thing works fine, even the fan. Is my machine ok, or should I try and take it apart to see if I harmed something?

Usually when you let the smoke out your done, but if it seems to be OK, I would just run (ellipe) with it. The board is probable damaged but working, you might of burned a few contacts, sniff around. You can take the covers off and look but if they are burned bad you might just finnish it off. How long it lasts can't be determined, but it is just a matter of time before it goes.

I wrongly plug jensen jta 460 turntable to 220volt power outlet. Can it be repaired? What is the dc out put of th?s power adapter? Can I change this original adaptor with 220volt ac dc adaptor?


Depends on how big it is, probably not, either the transformer coils might be burnt, causing a short (did you see or smell magic smoke?), or the diodes might be burnt (did you see or smell magic smoke?) or capacitors might be blown (did you see or smell magic smoke?)

As far as a different adaptor, see my response to your other question:

Car turns over but won't start, then lets out smoke


most probably, the misfire (smoke) was caused by a wrong firing order of the plugs. check if the high tension wires are on the correct plugs.

another thing that can cause this is incorrect ignition timing. have a mechanic check your timing on crankshaft, camshaft, and distributor (if present)

ProForm 675 elliptical is very hard to peddle


use the next steps:
Step 1

Use your flathead screwdriver to pry off the plate on the left side of the elliptical trainer.
Step 2

Look for the magnet and reed switch. These elements will be roughly the same size, and the reed switch should have a series of wires connected to it.
Step 3

Loosen the screw in the reed switch using your screwdriver. Move the reed switch by hand until it sits 1/8 inch from the magnet, then re-tighten the screw.
Step 4

Test the unit to see if the display and heart rate monitor are working properly. If not, move the reed switch slightly so it is closer or farther from the magnet, then try the machine again. Once you've found the correct location for the switch, tighten the screw to hold the reed switch in place.
Step 5

Replace the cover plate by snapping it into position by hand

The power cord for my schwinn 430 elliptical no longer stays plugged into the machine. I have to push it really had into the bike outlet so the machine turns on, but as soon as I take my hand off of it,...


Do you think the power cord is going bad? If so here is the parts list for the Schwinn 430 if you need to order a new AC adaptor. If you think the connection inside the machine is going bad you may want to find a servicer to look at it.
