However if finally the problem persist, test the input voltage motor see my personal TIPS, if there are Voltage at the terminals, the motor is faulty. Measure the output Voltage from the control board
for to input to the Motor, if there are NOT voltage from output the control BOARD is faulty, replace.

Pro form 835qt stops working after a few min. Took off cover and it smells very hot in the control section. What looks like a transformer seems to be putting out the most heat. any ideas?

that part is on the incline motor if that is hot and you are not inclining then something is wrong with the incline motor or the controller board

An visual inspection must be made under the motor hood. First unplugged unit then remove motor shroud clean any dirt or debris.Then check for any visible signs of burning on the Motor Control Board. Also check in the front where the power switch is, that may have burned if not, there should be a main fuse holder that also could burn or fuse may have opened up. If the fuse holder is good then proceed to the fuse if it has opened up replace the fuse. Then plug unit back in while you are look at all components while someone initiate start-up and if any burning is visible then isolate what component is burning or arching. Then go to Sports Art go to customer service and get their international number and they should be able assist you.
