Hi there,

Check your buttonhole lever, left back of the machine. Pull it down and push it right up into the machine. Should solve your problem

Is it better to get a rear-drive or front-drive elliptical trainer?


To best answer this question for you I have found an excerpt about this topic written by a fitness professional. Read it over and then consider your options.


"The rear-drive elliptical trainers have a more intuitive design," explained the fitness equipment expert. "When you exercise, inherent in this design is the proper biomechanical motion. It's a more natural motion. Most commercial units are the rear-drive type, because it has a floating system with free-rolling bearings. This means there are less mechanics, and less mechanics means less wear and tear. Also, mechanics in the back allow the user to sit forward, maintain the proper posture and, thus, get a better workout."

Our expert went on to describe front-drive ellipticals: "With front-drive elliptical trainers, they have to add extra linkage to make the pedals more comfortable. They also have to use a track, which can break down due to dirt build-up. There are more mechanical components, which need constant maintenance. More mechanics lead to more wear and tear and more noise. These machines tend to lose their smooth feel. The mechanics pushes the user back, making it necessary to lean forward, so the workout is not as effective as you get on a rear-drive model."

I want to buy an elliptical trainer for our home gym. What features should I be looking for before purchasing one?


The following are some features you should be looking for before purchasing a machine for your home: the stride length of the pedals, smooth motion of pedals, the option of arm handles, adjustable incline and resistance. You may not want all of this in one machine; however these are some qualities you should be addressing.

What is it about an elliptical machine that allows you to get a good cardio workout while putting barely any pressure on your joints?


Thanks to the motion of the foot pedals that allow your feet to move without lifting/pounding, your knees and hips take far less of a strain in comparison to using a treadmill.

In what way is an elliptical trainer different from a treadmill?


Treadmills have a moving belt while elliptical trainers have two foot pedals guiding movement - making it more controlled and safer. Elliptical trainers also have handles, in which the user has the option to move their arms in opposition to their legs to better control movement.

Knocking/bumping sound while pedaling Precor 576i elliptical. It is coming primarily from the right side/pedal on the downward strike. What could be causing this?


It could be the input drive bearings going out. I would suggest removing the back side covers of the unit and inspecting the drive assembly when its in use. Watch for deviations in the the circular motion of the crank arms. If it moves side to side or drops in the rotation its time to have the input replaced.

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.
