SOURCE: stop button, fan button, up incline button are not

If some buttons work, you more than likely have a key pad problem. Unfortunately Icon doesnt sell kep pad seperately. As a last effort, try heating up those buttons wit a blow dryer. This will work temp. sometimes.

SOURCE: proform 540 console doesn't work

If the console takesbatteries, replace them. If this does not work or your console does not requirebatteries, check the reed switch or optic sensor. Reed Switch: Unplug the treadmill andremove the motor hood cover. The reed switch is mounted on the frame next tothe front roller pulley. There is a magnet glued into the front roller pulley.When adjusting the reed switch, make sure it is pointing directly at themagnet. Move the tip of the reed switch within 1/8" of the magnet. Also,check to see that the wire is not damaged, and is connected to the console. clip_image002.jpgOptic Sensor: Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood cover. The optic diskand sensor are located either at the end of the motor or the right hand side ofthe front roller. The optic disk spins between two sensors on the optic switch.The disk must spin freely without touching either sensor. The sensors can bemoved by loosening the adjustment bolt holding the switch to its bracket. Theswitch can then be slid. Center the disk.

After you did these adjustments: Please tight the keypanel flexible cable vs display board and then tight the connector from display board vs lower board.
Try to clean the keypanel with spray contact cleaner with carefully and patience.
See diagrams. Good luck, sincerely. G-d bless you.

12_6_2011_5_46_41_pm.gif12_6_2011_5_46_57_pm.gifWith the block diagram that I did you will have a strong resultant if the keypanel board is faulty or display board completely. See how the main motor control has 90% functions in any treadmills.

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.

The board lights up, but when you attempt to push a button (speed, program select) nothing happens. I do however have the stop and pace button beeping 3 times when you touch, but nothing works.

i think your console is shot check connections on the controller board. when pressing buttons, and some commands or none work, its the console

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.
