Question about Exercise & Fitness
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!

plug her back in, insert key, let her do her thing while u just sit back- I believe shes trying to Calibrate. If so, she will go up all the way,then back down on her own. after she's in down posistion, console will beep/beep and she has reset herself.. let me know what goes on after u do this. David

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

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!
