Too Much Resistance on Stepmill

The first step in troubleshooting too much resistance or constant resistance begins with the lower board. You will want to first verify that the Field LED is lit on the lower board. As shown in the video, the Field LED is off initially, when the steps are engaged it lights up, after about 5 seconds the light should go off. If the Field LED stays lit during a workout or after a workout is completed, this is a sign that the console is faulty. There is constant power being supplied through the console keeping a full load and causing no change in resistance. If the Field LED remains lit, the console needs replaced.
