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!

Call manufactor for calibration instructions. Some of the smooth fitness treads were made by Spirit fitness.

SOURCE: My Proform treadmill will not incline. It is stuck

Under the hood there should be a tech sheet with calibration instructions. I have not worked on these for several years or I would rattle off the procedure. If the sheet is still there make sure you put it back in the plastic sleeve for next time..... Eric

SOURCE: I have proform 545s treadmiil and incline engages

Hello there. The machine is trying to complete an incline calibration.
Place the kay back on the unit and allow it to go all the way to the top then all the way back down and it should be ready to use.
If you stop the machine while its in this mode it will start the process all over again.
Good Luck! Tim

Under the motor shroud their is a instruction mini manual it will have a how to calibrate the incline motor, if that does not fix it then you may have to manually adjust the incline motor and sometimes it will take awhile to realign . If that does not work replacing the motor maybe the only option

We folded the Proform 500 LE Elliptical and moved it. Now we are unable to unfold the elliptical with the latch button. Suggestions?


HOW TO FOLD AND UNFOLD THE ELLIPTICAL

When the elliptical is not in use, the frame can be folded out of the way. First, lift the latch under each pedal arm, and lift the pedal arms off the adjustment sleeves on the crank arms.

Next, raise the pedal arms until they touch the magnets on the upper body legs; the magnets will hold the pedal arms in place.

Then, hold the handle and lift the frame until it locks in a vertical position. To use the elliptical, first hold the handle, press the latch button, and lower the frame.

Next, pull the pedal arms off the magnets on the upper body legs.

Then, lift the latches under the pedal arms, and set the pedal arms on the adjustment sleeves on the crank arms.

Release the latches, and make sure that the pedal arms are securely connected to the adjustment sleeves.

Will be attaching a link to your manual also

Why won't incline go up or down?


Calibrating Your Incline Is your incline not operating correctly? There are a few simple steps that can be followed which will most likely resolve that problem for you.
9bvipvsqvatex9kgfcnn03s5zhvtng9too4023mrox7s22mjjuue73rxrrhupctrxro022nhu0i53bbtrxqocdrxro402hhw0410bbbtxqkad79poo41hbe1410ybbtwq+p8byj8qzuzzwaoaaaaasuvork5cyii=
The first step is to press and hold both the STOP and SPEED INCREASE buttons, this will be either an UP ARROW or a + (plus) symbol. While holding these two buttons down you will need to insert your safety key.
Once you have inserted the safety key you can release the buttons and let go of the key. At this point you will need to press the STOP button one time. Congratulations, you are now in Calibration Mode.
Now that we are in calibration, press the INCLINE UP button one time. This will cause the platform to go all the way up and then it will come all the way back down again.
Now that the incline has stopped moving you can remove the safety key.

Incline problem


All icon models are the same. The easiest way to incline calibration is to start the treadmill, push the incline up button and then after you release the button, remove the safety key. Replace the safety key and the treadmill should calibrate.
If that doesn't work, press the stop and speed up buttons and hold, then place the safety key in place. This will bring you to the speed/incline calibration. Press stop again. now press incline up. This will run the incline calibration.
You may need to remove the hood and manually with a drill lower the motor. Using a slot screwdriver bit, lower the motor a bout 50 turns and then try the procedure above again if necessary.

My Proform 785 will not unfold even after I have pulled the latch. Is there something else I need to do to unfold it?


You may have damaged the treadmill when folding it up. If the incline was not lowered to its minimum position, the frame can be damaged.
To lower the treadmill, all you do is release the latch and lower the deck of the treadmill to the floor.
There are many Proform machines known as "785" including a number of elliptical trainers. An actual model number would make diagnosis much easier...

Our Proform Sport 1000 treadmill will not run because the elevation will not go to 0 degrees. I can hear a clicking as if the teadmill is trying to go flat, but is slipping.


The incline operation and the walking belt operation are independent of each other. The walking belt should run regardless of the incline operation.
Although I have never had a problem with the gears in the incline motor being defective, you may need the motor replaced.. Try an incline calibration.
With the safety key in place, press start to start the machine. Press incline up. While the numbers are changing, remove the safety key. Release the incline up button. Reinstall the key, the machine should calibrate . After calibration, retry the operation normally.
Because the circumstances here are unusual, I would next disassemble the right upright and inspect the wiring harness for damage. During assembly, it is easy to pinch the harness (usually at the bottom of the upright), damaging the wiring to the console. The console may work, the the information may not get to the motor control PCB. The machine may have worked for a period of time before the damage became apparent, the flexing and movement of the frame eventually will eat through the wiring causing a number of unusual symptoms.
