    hey...did you ever figure out what was wrong with ur proform? im having the same exact problem.

    Hey I just had this problem today and I tried something and it seemed to work.

    1.) Get on the Eliiptical, pedal, then adjust your resistance to 3 or whatever
    2.) Select your desired preset.

    Just tried it and worked..let me know if it works for you!

Resistance stops after a few seconds


Always check the sensor alignment first. If its properly aligned, check the sensor magnet. If thats ok, replace sensor

Resistance not adjusting


Reading on HSN website, it is b/c this product is junk. Dozens and dozens of reviews stating the resistance is stuck and wont' change.

My Proform 100 ZLX Exercycle is stuck in low/zero pedal resistance, and doesn't respond to console settings. Can this be economically fixed?


follow the steps, and fix it. God bless you

Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.

ProForm 675 elliptical is very hard to peddle


use the next steps:
Step 1

Use your flathead screwdriver to pry off the plate on the left side of the elliptical trainer.
Step 2

Look for the magnet and reed switch. These elements will be roughly the same size, and the reed switch should have a series of wires connected to it.
Step 3

Loosen the screw in the reed switch using your screwdriver. Move the reed switch by hand until it sits 1/8 inch from the magnet, then re-tighten the screw.
Step 4

Test the unit to see if the display and heart rate monitor are working properly. If not, move the reed switch slightly so it is closer or farther from the magnet, then try the machine again. Once you've found the correct location for the switch, tighten the screw to hold the reed switch in place.
Step 5

Replace the cover plate by snapping it into position by hand

My dryer stops and shows E1 flashing


I suggest unplugging the dryer and checking the wiring connection of the thermistor to the electronic control board. The thermistor attaches to the control board on the P2 connector (red/white and black wires on pins 5 and 6).

The image below shows the procedure for accessing the control board in this dryer (click image for zoom). If the connection is okay, pull the connector off of the control board and check the resistance through the red/white wire and black wire with a volt/ohm meter (with the dryer still unplugged). You should measure about 10K ohms (10,000 ohms) at room temperature. Make sure that your meter is set to the proper range. If you read infinite resistance (open), then you could have a wire harness connection problem between the control board and the thermistor. Check the resistance across the leads of the thermistor (with at least one wire removed from the thermistor). If you measure normal resistance (10K ohms) at the thermistor, then you will need to repair the wiring connection between the control board and the thermistor.
If you measure the proper resistance through the thermistor circuit at the connection to the control board (red/white wire to black wire on the P2 connector), then the electronic control board is bad and will need to be replaced.

Keeps shutting off automatically and flashes Protect before it shuts down ??


FIRST DISS-CONNECT POWER FROM RECEIVER.... DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY SERVICE / TROUBLESHOOTING PROCEDURES TO ELECTRICAL DEVICES PRIOR TO REMOVING ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that the power cord is unplugged we can start. We shall start this repair by doing the easiest tests/checks first. That DOES NOT MEAN that just because the test is easy, its not very important.... every recommendation to follow is JUST as important as the next! (even if what is asked to be checked sounds un-important... its not! Follow this advice and YOU WILL RESOLVE YOUR ISSUE! TRUST ME... YOU WILL FIX THIS issue & before the days over.... SMILE & BE HAPPY! OK...... lets get started) First lets Check the power cord... unpluged? Sure hope so! Now the first thing that you have to do is check ALL the speaker connections at both ends!!!!!!!! (@ speaker & Receiver) Be certain ALL connections are tight & that NO strands of wire are shorting out the connections by touching each other...... the ends of ALL speaker wires must be seperate from each other at all times!!!! Each wire must ONLY be connected to one post/connector!!!!! Only ONE speaker should be connected to each terminal.... do not connect additional speakers to connections at any time!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY ONE can be applied to EACH OUTPUT TERMINAL!!!!!! If the speakers your using are fuse protected check fuses or circuit breakers accordingly. One open circuit (unconnected output terminal) or shorted (wires touching together) will immediatelly trigger receiver to SHUT DOWN!!!!!!! Receiver MUST have a load (speaker) connected to each speaker output to operate properly. Should all wires be found connected properly after checking at both speaker terminals & receiver terminals & problem is still accuring after reapplying power....... additional resistance checks must be made using an OHM Meter (available at most harware stores). If one of the speakers being used has burned out / gone bad / broke...... the only way to determine this condition is via a resistance measurment. Disconnect the speaker wire from the back of each speaker prior to doing resistance check!!! (a false reading will be observed if the speaker wire is still connected during this test) Now touch each of the two speaker terminals with one of the meter leads (the meter must be set to OHMS or RESISTANCE during this test for proper reading). The resistance reading observed should be NO LESS THAN 3 OHMS & NO MORE THAN 10 OHMS !!!!!!!!! Should the resistance/ohm's value of any speaker being used / connected to the receiver be found by the OHM Meter to read LESS than 3 OHMS = speaker shorted... MUST be replaced! Should the resistance/ohm's value of any speaker being used / connected to the receiver be found by the OHM Meter to read MORE than 10 OHMS = speaker open.... Must be replaced! Connecting damaged speakers to any receiver for a prolonged period of time WILL DAMAGE RECEIVER!!!!!!! Speaker resistance MUST be between 3 & 10 ohms to avoid damage to output transistors in receiver.... when receiver senses less than a resistance of 3 or more of a resistance than 10 @ ANY speaker terminal during operation................. IMMEDIATE AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN OF RECEIVER WILL OCCURE!!!!!!! You've got a bad speaker or a loose speaker wire or a shorted speaker wire...... check each of your speaker connections/terminals & you'll find your problem! When you do find a loose or shorted wire associated with the speakers......... you'll have found your problem! Trust me.... you CAN do it!!!! and when you do... you will SMILE !!!!!!!! & be HAPPY!!!!!!!
GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

After replacing batteries on Proform PF800 console stays lit


Pull the batteries out let it reset itself while its doing that check all cable to make the connection are seated firmly then reinstall the batteries, unless the function pad is sending a phantom signal engaging the display to be on continuously,or by pure chance the upper electronics went hay wire

Usually XP will work well on older systems, even ones that came with 98. The biggest thing will be if XP has drivers for the older devices such as the modem. Usually XP does a good job.
