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.

Open the rear part where the "guts" are. The magnet will be stuck against the wheel that turns when you pedal because the cable that the resistance motor pulls to remove the tension will have too much slack in it. The cable probably came off of the pulley wheel that is used to providing the necessary tension to pull the magnet off of the wheel.
To get the case off, simply unhook the right side pedal, remove the 4 bolts holding on the crank thing to remove it, then using a philips head screwdriver, remove the screws in the screw holes on the case cover. Be sure to remove the one screw on the other side near the front in order to allow the front part to "unsnap".

1) tight the bolts tension for magnet and clean very well. and proof..if the fail
2) go to test the magnet, use again the magnet from your refrigerator magnet, for attraction and repulsion. If do not pass the TEST replace the magnet in any Hardware such home depot, etc.

Use your flathead screwdriver to pry off the plate on the left side of the elliptical trainer.
Look for the magnet and reed
switch. These elements will be roughly the same size, and the reed
switch should have a series of wires connected to it.
Loosen the screw in the reed
switch using your screwdriver. Move the reed switch by hand until it
sits 1/8 inch from the magnet, then re-tighten the screw.
Test the unit to see if the
display and heart rate monitor are working properly. If not, move the
reed switch slightly so it is closer or farther from the magnet, then
try the machine again. Once you've found the correct location for the
switch, tighten the screw to hold the reed switch in place.
Replace the cover plate by snapping it into position by hand
God bless you
