1280s proform elliptical clicking & resistance level doesn't change

I bought a use Proform 1280s elliptical machine. It makes a loud clicking/clonking sound when in motion. We've taken off the back cover and we can't seem to tighten the screws because they are stuck in place.... not sure what to do with it now. We can see that the left pedal has wiggle room where it attaches to the wheel, but the right side is nice and tight. Also the resistance level doesn't adjust... I'm not sure if this is a related problem.

SOURCE: Proform 622 Exp treadmill belt slips

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches above the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. Now if this does not solve this problem then check the drive belt and adjust accordingly, also reverse the process of the above mentioned

SOURCE: Proform 780cs motor is very loud. Funtions properly just suddenly loud.

1) LUBE the deck belt, the lack of this produce enough frictiona and loud, maybe you have a WORN deck belt.
2) LUBE the rollers bearing too.
3) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor is faulty, repair.
4) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage board, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
God bless you

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.
