SOURCE: Proform frontrunner most control function not working.

I had the same problem-only one of my programs would work, and the rest of the buttons (even start) would not work. I used some scissors and carefully cut about a 1/2 inch in the plastic inbetween each of the copper strips in the ribbon cable. Then I seated each one individually (put them back in the white plastic thing) until I found the one that was freezing all of the other buttons up. Now all of my buttons EXCEPT for the one that was working before work. I can live without 1 program if it saves me $300.

SOURCE: My ProForm 530 is stuck in the incline position.

plug her back in, insert key, let her do her thing while u just sit back- I believe shes trying to Calibrate. If so, she will go up all the way,then back down on her own. after she's in down posistion, console will beep/beep and she has reset herself.. let me know what goes on after u do this. David

PS-mine also stopped working after we moved it, but when I told an "expert" that he said it wouldn't just stop working because I moved it....I think moving it DEFINATELY had something to do with it.

SOURCE: only one program works. you

Dear Sir:

I will help you inmediately.

SOLUTION: a. Remove the key from the console and unplug the
power cord. Remove the screws from the hood and
carefully remove the hood. Locate the Reed Switch
and the Magnet on the left side of the Pulley
. Turn the Pulley until the Magnet is aligned with
the Reed Switch. Make sure that the gap between
the Magnet and the Reed Switch is about 1/8ó. If
necessary, loosen the Reed Switch Screw and
move the Reed Switch slightly. Retighten the Screw.
Re-attach the hood, and run the treadmill for a few
minutes to check for a correct speed reading.

Please check it and contact me if there are any additional help. blessing. sincerely.

Bought a proform ekg treadmill from a lady on line


Mine did the same thing. I had to take the display apart and clean the contacts on the circuitboard that are underneath the buttons. After I put it back together it has worked perfectly. Mone came from a house where the people smoked and it was the nicotine and tar that was in the smoke that had seeped inside and cause it to stop functioning properly. Well I guess thats why they sold it to me. They likely were not using it anyway. Well I hope this helps

I have a proform treadmill that slips as soon as i step on track i looked at the belt it looks good how do i tighten up the track


There should be adjustment screws on the back left and right sides. The screws will be horizontal with the tread, and probably need an allen wrench to tighten. If the tread runs straight, tighten each side 1/4 turn at a time to keep them even. Check the tread after each adjustment, and stop as soon as the tread quits slipping.

Belt is slipping


your macnine needs some maintenance. slippage on the proform is usually due to a worn out front roller and a worn motor driving the belt. both can be replaced. or you may want to find a good used one as many get no use before the optomististic owner decides to sell.

Proform 515s treadmill motor won't start


If the colse buttons make a chirping noise when you push them the console should be Ok. If there is no chirping noise with the push it is a bad console. If everything but the speed works it will probably be your motor controller that is bad.
