Question about Proform CrossTrainer Treadmill

Open Question

My Proform treadmill comes on but won't start

I hadn't used my treadmill for about a month. I got it out and it lights up, it will change programs but the speed and incline buttons seem "dead". I adjusted the reed switch, I also took off the operator panel but nothing looks out of place. No change. Please help, this treadmill isn't very old and it's one of the more expensive models from Sears.

SOURCE: I have a proform xp 580. when I turn it on,

Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key.
Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
After completing calibration of incline, press the Stop key and then remove the safety key.

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!

1) Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. If this doesn’t work, click on the help topic entitled “Alternate Calibration Codes” for key sequence instructions to enter calibration.
2) Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test.

Dead sensor on a PaceMaster SX-PRO treadmill


I know this is an old question and the company that made this brand has gone bankrupt, but for what it's worth, if anybody happens to have one of these still and you're getting that dead sensor error message I have a workaround. It's not a fix -- just a workaround, but it will at least let you get some use out of the machine. There are a couple service modes available that will let you bypass the speed sensor. One lets you adjust the incline, the other lets you adjust the speed (in terms of percentage of motor output).

Incline Test Mode -- Press and hold UP and SELECT while inserting the magnetic safety key. Release both buttons when you see the dotted lines. Use UP and DOWN to adjust to your preferred incline.

PWM Test Mode -- Press and hold SLOWER and SELECT while inserting the magnetic safety key. Release both buttons and hit the START button. Use FASTER and SLOWER buttons to adjust the power being fed to the motor. Actual speed will appear in the speed window while the percentage of power will be in the distance window.

The dead sensor error is caused by (usually) a bad speed sensor. It's a little sensor attached to one of the circuit boards facing a shiny wheel attached to the motor next to the flywheel. The shiny wheel has little black pinstripes, which the sensor reads as the wheel turns. The sensor needs to be about 3/16 of an inch away from the wheel. There are 2 screws attaching the circuit board which can be loosened to adjust this distance. I don't think the sensor can be changed; you'd need to swap out that whole circuit board, and I don't think they're still available.

Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills


Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
