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

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

Proform xp650e, incline driving continuosly in max incline position with loud clunks/bumps


Your treadmill has what is called a "stair step" incline motor. It is common for them to go bad. You would need to remove the motor hood and activate the incline motor. Check to see if the noise is coming from the motor and if so I would suggest replacement.

Treadmill will not level out and motor sounds all the time


If the incline moves but only just a bit, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. We remove the motor from the treadmill, reconnect the wiring, and then try to run the incline motor outside the treadmill. Many times, this will unjam it if that is the problem and then reinstalling it in the treadmill will get it to work. If you have the same problem or it doesn’t run outside the machine and you can hear it try to work, you need to replace the incline motor.

Proform 740CS runs okay but the incline does not


ProForm Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits. It worked for mine just 10 minutes ago; the procedure is in the manual if you have it. Good luck!

The proform 730 CS treadmill is stuck in the inclined position. It doesn't go down when pressing the down arrow. Is there a manual way to lower it.


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

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
