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

    I have this same problem with my Proform 730CS. What screw would I loosen to try to get the incline to drop back down to the lower position? I want to try this and then try the recalibration again, since I cannot figure out how to get the incline to lower from near the top position. Thanks

My treadmill won't go down the platform how to lower it please help


If it is stuck in the incline position all you need to do is re-calibrate most of the time

The first step to re-calibrate the incline. ProForm provides calibration instructions in the treadmill owner's manual.

Hold down the "Stop" button and the "Speed" up button. Insert the safety key into the console then release the "Stop" and "Speed" buttons.

Press the "Stop" button then press either the "Incline" up or down button. Wait while the treadmill raises then lowers the incline ramp. Press the "Stop" button and remove the safety key.

Hope this helps or solves the problem, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us at 888-713-2880 or visit us online at

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 tl 585 is stuck on an incline. when i try to lower the incline, the button does nothing. the incline could still raise, but obviously i'd rather lower it than raise it more.


Take the cover off and inspect the wiring. Make sure all the wires from the incline motor are connected.
If all the wires are connected and everything looks OK, try the incline again.
There are only 3 wires on the incline motor, red, white and black. This machine does not rely on any electronics to operate the incline. We know the motor works, because it will go up..Likely the switch in the console is defective.
To lower the incline, reverse the black and red wires, that will make up go down and vice versa.. If that doesn't work, the motor is likely defective.
The incline motor is available, around $110. To order find the model number on the frame of the treadmill and call the service number found there. Have your model number ready (starts with "P").
The console is no longer available.

ICON CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS- INCLINE
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.
3) Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
4) THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP BECAUSE YOU WILL GET AN ERROR MESSAGE IF THIS STEP IS SKIPPED.After completing calibration of incline, press the Stop key and then remove the safety key.

The proform 980 turns on but just goes to incline


It is trying to its starting point I would suggest is to unplug the unit open the motor shroud unit. The shroud it has a mini manual this should have a calibration instructions that can be done and also upper electronics self test to see if the processor is functioning properly. It should give a better idea which to head. You can call Icon Fitness@ 1-800999-3756

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
