Pro Form C525. Then incline motor works with a gear wheel moving up a metal bar with teeth. The motor did not stop when the teeth ran out and continued off the end of the bar. ProForm says I need a whole motor assembly. I am sure a part broke but how do I make sure it does not happen again? The sensor seems to be used for calibration. I would think the motor would stop and reverse when it ran out of teeth.

The repair for this is usually a new elevation motor. However if elevation isn't a big issue for for you, you can disconnect the elevation motor and use treadmill like that. The elevation motor doesn't go out that often. You should check with a local repair person. They may have a used one laying around. I usually keep one on hand to test with.

I have a KP26M1XPm pro series 6 qt 575 watt stand mixer bought in Feb 2006. For some time it made a "knocking" sound as it mixed large heavy jobs. It was not a grinding sound but a knock as the...

I would be inclined to replace the broken/worn gear and only any other bearings/bushes that show wear, which is probably none. I would remove any contaminated grease (it usually remains close to the failure point) and add more grease if necessary. The gear is a fuse gear and designed weaker to fail if the machine is overloaded so the gear that runs on it is unlikely to be damaged.

Wheels not turning.......... gear? will move slowly in pool but only seems to move with the thrust of water........

Check the metal debris screen inside the fitting that connects to the pool wall to make sure you have good pressure. If dirty then clean the screen. Then check the hose to make sure there are no holes. Look at the inside of the front wheels to see if the teeth are stripped. If they are then switch the back wheels to the front. If they havent been switched before the back wheels should have good teeth. If there is no inline metal screen on the feed hose then the jets inside the cleaner could be clogged with seeds or some type of debris. Also could be a bad internal gear or bearing that is seizing up.

The incline on my pro form crosswalk 400e is slipping when you incline it. There seems to be a plastic piece that slides up and down on the incline gear. I think that the peice is either broken or loose

Hello there. Yes there is a plastic piece in your particular model of incline motor. It also does wear out on occasion. The only fix is to replace the entire incline motor. This motor is available at If you go to the replacement parts section and input your model number (29633) you will be able to find part number 51 is available for $159.
Good Luck! Tim

Treadmill not working properly. Incline keeps slipping.

there is a plastic spacer at the rack area on the incline mtr- this white plastic spacer has broken, only recourse u have is to unplug the white wire on incline mtr, and never have a incline, or replace incline mtr when you find out how much the mtr is you might want to walk with out incline- if you was in my area, I have them cheaper

Ifit treadmill will not incline but everything else works, how do I fix the incline

You may need to calibrate the incline. Do this with the following procedure.
Safety key out
press the stop and speed up buttons at the same time while inserting the safety key. (you are now in diagnostics)
press the stop button one time only.
now press the incline up button (incline motor should start moving up)
incline will go up to the top and then all the way to the bottom. when it gets done you can remove the key. Reinsert the key and you should be operating normally.
Good luck Tim

Grinding Sound

Only solution - Don't buy a FELLOWES shredder.
It is ludicrous that they cannot (will not) supply a spare gear wheel when there are thousands of instances of them failing. Or even think outside the box - fit metal ones?
