There is a small motor under the shroud that operates the resistance motor. It is about the size of a roll of half dollars. Have someone use a meter and check that you are getting power to this. When you turn on the machine the motor should move the resistance forward then back. You can hear this everytime you turn it on.

I had a similar problem recently with my elliptical - it was permanently stuck in the "hard" position. In my case, it has a wheel that turns when you step, and the tension is adjusted by a pair of magnets inside this wheel assembly. These magnets are positioned near the wheel - closer for more tension or further for less tension.
The console control electronics that send a signal down to this wheel assembly. There is a little motor that pulls on a short cable to position the magnet(s).
The problem was that the cable attached to one of the magnets snapped, leaving that magnet close to the wheel, i.e. high tension. We had to have a technician order and replace the entire wheel assembly as its individual pieces are not made to be serviceable.
It sounds like your case might be similar. Maybe you only have one magnet or two. In any case, I'd look at whether the magnet(s) are moving relative to the wheel when you adjust the tension settings (you should be able to see or hear the magnets move - you might need a buddy to help).
While you may not be able to repair it yourself (you can get yourself pinched badly around these gears and mechanical elements), you will at least know what's going on so you get the right work done if you choose to hire someone.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Do this for your console Elliptical:Removethe bolts or screws securing the console to the upright assembly. Lift theconsole and confirm that the cable connections are secure. Remove the coverfrom the console's battery bay and install a fresh set of batteries. Replacethe battery cover.2
Detachthe ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Remove the left and right discshields and side shields. Inspect the interior of the base unit and locate theflywheel.3
Inspectthe flywheel as it turns. Locate the magnet installed on the flywheel. Turn theflywheel until the magnet passes in front of the nearby reed switch. Loosen thescrew securing the switch in place. Rotate the switch to reduce the gap betweenit and the magnet. Tighten the screw.4
Replace the left and right disc shields and sideshields. Reattach the ends of the pedals to the crank axles
Good luck, sincerely. G-d bless you.
