I recently bought a used Proform J8. It worked

I recently bought a used Proform J8. It worked fine using the 20 minute mode. I put it in Manual mode and raised the incline to 4.0 to demonstrate how it worked to a friend. It seems to have stuck there. It keeps refering back to 1.5 incline as if it is in that position. Does anyone know how to unstick this problem with the incline. (Everything else works fine)

SOURCE: proform 360p stuck on incline

I had the exact same problem.

This usually happens if you switch it off at the mains while the incline is adjusting or is somewhere other than lowest. You should always make sure before finishing off, to lower everything.

Now for the solution: If you open up the case it has 5 or 6 black philips (cross head) screws (use your user manual if you don't have your original go to proform and find the support link and download the .PDF if your model is not available get the one before or after in the same model product line (model number is below the power input)).

Make sure you remove the power before opening the cover, obviously.

Anyway, once opened, you should find a sheet of paper wrapped around in some plastic wallet. On that paper it should explain everything. Try not to mess with too much things in the settings, otherwise you might mess it up badly.

Mine is something like: Hold the speed up (+) button and then while holding the button insert the key - that will get you to the service menu (obviously the power has to be connected).

Once in the menu pressing the incline up does a self-calibration (maximum up and maximum down) after that it should be perfect.

Remove the key any time to come out of that mode and resume normal operation.

I may not find this place for any more replies 'cos i only found this site by accident. While looking for info. on my burnt out motor model: PETL 3013.6 .... But i have come across someone selling a faulty one on ebay for like 5 quids... it's picking it up the trouble!

The only way is loosening the screw or nut and making it back manually, but it is the right way to fix it, you should review the KEYPAD, specifically the down key. tries to do the following: turn it off and rub the area where the key now is turn it on again if it does not work with you to replace that part

SOURCE: Proform 740CS runs okay but the incline does not

ProForm Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits. It worked for mine just 10 minutes ago; the procedure is in the manual if you have it. Good luck!

I have a model 297980 J8 proform treadmill. when I first start it up without the safety key in it, the treadmill runs at full speed for about 2 minuets. After that it slows down and stops. The speed is set...


You have to put the safety key in if you want to select speed/incline or predefined programs.
It starts and runs at full speed on that occasion because it's part of the maintenance process, that lubricates the inner rollers so that it will continue to work perfectly for as long as possible.

I have a proform j8 treadmill when you run on it for a half mile to a mile it kicks off then you have to wait awhile flip the breaker next to the on off switch. and it happens again


Check out treadmilldoc.com The very best free information and help you can get to fix your treadmill yourself. I would say off hand the belt needs lubed (at least once a year) with special lube. Do not use ordinary household lubricants. Or the breaker switch is bad. About $8 to 15$. It's tripping for a reason, clean and lube and then go from there.

Proform CS17e speeds up by itself after 10 minutes.


You probably need a new speed censor. If you bought it new that part should be covered under warranty. www.AtlantaFitnessRepair.com

You could try disconnecting power to the switch for a few minutes maybe that will reset it. Other than that I would say cut your losses and replace it. Hope this helps a little.

J8 Error Code


There are a few different part numbers for those cartridges, the chip on them bills differently.
A J8 means although you have a 212 cartridge, it has a chip on it that does not match your machine setup.
A J8 indicates a mismatch in the cartridges and the machine. No you do not have the wrong physical cartridge, it just has a different chip on it.
