Follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Electronics Problem You control the tension of the pedals using the buttons on the console. When you assemble the A.C.T. elliptical, you have to thread a group of wires from the console through the upright down to the electronics board. These wires communicate the resistance settings to the electronics board. If the wires twist, disconnect or break, the resistance will not work. You will need to reconnect or replace the wires.

New drive belt still won't pull tractor

Your belt was probably not placed over the tension pulley. Follow the pedal you push to make tractor go forward. Look under the tractor where the belt was installed. If space is tight just lower your deck. The linkage from the pedal will go to the tension pulley. If the belt has been placed on one side of the pulley, and machine is not working then move the belt to the other side of the pulley. Replace any bars that are used to keep belt from falling off. I am interested in hearing back from you. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Emergency brake not working after changing rear brake shoes on a 1990 gmc pickup 1500 series? And how do I release the emergency pedal from the floor? It won't release when you step on it?

Was the brake shoes replacement a DIY or professional job. If DIY, are you certain that you reassembled the brakes properly? Does the truck move at all? Does it feel as though the e-brake is applied? With the e-brake pedal to the floor, the truck should not move freely when the accelerator pedal is depressed. The emergency brake assemblies on both rear wheels are connected to a cable assembly that ultimately leads to the e-brake pedal. The cable has an adjustment point and a spring tensioner to prevent slack in the cable. First, crawl under and physically check the cable tension. If it's loose, either the cables are not connected to the rear wheels' brake assemblies, not connected properly, or the cable and/or pedal is damaged/broken. If the cable is tight - overly tight, but the e-brake is not holding the truck from moving, the e-brake levers attached to the shoes inside the brake drums are likely not installed correctly. Double check your installation and consider replacing the e-brake cable (as a precaution). As for the pedal, you may have to remove it in order to get the ratchet-locking mechanism to release.
Of course, if this was a professional job, call the shop and have them make it right. Good luck.

I have a JD LA110 2007 engine runs fine was cutting lawn and it just coasted to a stop and won't move now. I did smell a burnt smell chked belts look ok.

Sounds like you may have a belt that popped loose. While the belts may look intact, they can sometimes jump out of their groove. Check to make sure the drive belt is routed properly, and that it is tight when the clutch/brake pedal is out (in the drive position). If the belt is routed properly, and the belt is not tight in with the pedal in drive, chances are your tension pulley assembly may have broken, or something else is amiss in the drive pulleys. Also make sure to try all the gears.

I have a 390 proform Elliptical and it's is locked up. When I get on it, the pedals are tight and I can not move them.

There may be a problem with the belt inside the machine.
It has to be taken apart to assess.

Yardman LT1238 stuck in gear

All the clutch does is to remove belt tention by moving an idler pulley, so with the machine stopped, depress the clutch pedal and watch the idler pulley moving away from the belt, and the belt should become slack, if not check all the linkages, if the belt remains tight and the idler has moved away, then replace the belt, it is very important to have the correct belt lenght,

Mower stopped moving

If this is a manual transmission, check the drive belt from the engine back to the transmission. With the clutch pedal up (engaged) there should be no slack in the belt.

If it is a hydrostatic drive, check the drive belt and make sure it is tight. Check the transmission fluid level and make sure it is full. Refer to your owners manual as it will describe the fluid check proceedure.
Good luck, let me know.

Rearend sliping

Have you checked your drive belt(s) for wear or pieces missing. With engine off and clutch/brake pedal up, check the tightness of the belt. You may just need a new belt.
