There may be a problem with the belt inside the machine.

We folded the Proform 500 LE Elliptical and moved it. Now we are unable to unfold the elliptical with the latch button. Suggestions?


HOW TO FOLD AND UNFOLD THE ELLIPTICAL

When the elliptical is not in use, the frame can be folded out of the way. First, lift the latch under each pedal arm, and lift the pedal arms off the adjustment sleeves on the crank arms.

Next, raise the pedal arms until they touch the magnets on the upper body legs; the magnets will hold the pedal arms in place.

Then, hold the handle and lift the frame until it locks in a vertical position. To use the elliptical, first hold the handle, press the latch button, and lower the frame.

Next, pull the pedal arms off the magnets on the upper body legs.

Then, lift the latches under the pedal arms, and set the pedal arms on the adjustment sleeves on the crank arms.

Release the latches, and make sure that the pedal arms are securely connected to the adjustment sleeves.

Will be attaching a link to your manual also

Proform hybrid trainer squeaks - elliptical portion only. Everything tight. What do I do now?


Locate the site of the sqeak. Then spray WD40 or similar spray lubricant thoroughly in and around the screws in that area using the straw attachment. I did just that and it took care of the problem.

My 390 E is locked up and I can't move the pedals. I checked the belt, it's still on and it's tight.


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.

How to use the Proform 515S EKG Elliptical?


To mount the elliptical trainer, firmly hold the handlebars or the T-handle and carefully step onto the pedal that is in the lowest position. Next, step onto the other pedal. Push the pedals until they begin to move with a continuous motion. Note: The pedal disks can turn in either direction. It is recommended that you turn the pedal disks in the direction shown below; however, to give variety to your exercise, you may choose to turn the pedal disks in the opposite direction.
To dismount the elliptical trainer, allow the pedals to come to a complete stop. CAUTION: The elliptical trainer does not have a free wheel; the pedals will continue to move until the flywheel stops. When the pedals are stationary, step off the highest pedal first. Then, step off the lowest pedal.
As you exercise, you can adjust the resistance of the pedals with the resistance knob on the console. To increase the resistance, turn the knob clockwise; to decrease the resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise.

Pedals/resistance locked


Was this at a retail store you should exchage it.
If not then you will have to take the side off need to inspect all mechanical attached to the rails. It will be apparent to see the flywheel their eddy current transformer on top of unit or the flywheel itself is one package their should be are wire comming out of trace it back to the circuit unplug the connectors the resistance should be gone now test the mechanical function of unit to see if the pedal are free from any binding then reverse connectors and see if you can adjust the resistance if not the board is defective.

Proform XP110 R recumbent bike makes clanking noise.


I have the same problem with my XP 110. After taking the ENTIRE thing apart and independently testing every single moving mechanism, I found out that it wasn't the motor, pedals, armbars, or any internal mechanism. Instead, it was the front stabilizer foot that made the annoying noise. There is a plastic mechanism around the front stabilizer legs that holds the front wheels in place (for moving the elliptical). Whenever a rotation forward occurs, the plastic squeaks and the noise resonates to make it sound like the pedals or motor is squeaking. I am still trying to find a solution to fixing the feet, but may end up ordering a new set from the manufacturer. Good luck with your elliptical!
