SOURCE: Have proform 850 elliptical, unit jerks at bottom of travel

This is caused by a loose crank arm. The key assembly is loose. (#32 on your parts list) The covers will need to be removed to access this. Be sure the crank arms are realigned against the frame when completing the repair. Good luck, Tim

Proform 500 LE Elliptical. Suddenly, why won't it turn on at all?


Check for a loose connection when plugging it in, verify that the main cable is connected to the console and the console also runs on batteries. You can try replacing those and use it that way with no adapter. They recommend alkaline batteries and if that still does not work, opening up your machine and verifying no cables are unattached or crimped would be best.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us, i will be attaching a link to your manual also
