Question about Proform Exercise & Fitness

Open Question

My Proform 8.5 personal fitness trainer will no longer work. The display is fine, but when I attach the magnetic key, it gives its normal beep followed by a stuttering series of beeps that are a slightly lower tone. The treadmill won't respond to any of the controls, it beeps the stuttering tone at me each time I push one. I've tried unplugging and replugging, I've tried the reset switch, both with and without the key attached. The machine acts fine (i.e. no stuttering beeps) until I attach the key. I've tried cleaning both the key and the receptor area to no avail. I've never had this issue with the treadmill before.

SOURCE: My Proform 8.5 personal fitness trainer will no longer work

Hello there, It seems that you have a stuck button or a problem with the ifit card area. Yes I know you probably dont use it but just listen. If you have the demo card for the unit try putting the demo card into the ifit slot and press it in and out a couple of times. This will sometimes correct this problem. If that does not correct it then you will need to replace the console or possibly disconnect the ifit section from the console itself. Either way you will need to remove the console.
If more info is needed please leave me a note here and I will get back to you asap.
Good Luck! Tim

I have the pro-form 980 cs and the screen displays a bright blue color but no words on the display. It was working fine, but a storm over the weekend knocked out our electrical power. It has not worked...


Dear Friend:
Thank you by your request.

I will try to help you inmediately:

nstructions Things You'll Need
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Allen wrenches (included with the Proform 980 and Proform 980CS)
  1. Power
    • 1 Ensure that the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surge suppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure the services of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proform treadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord.
    • 2 Insert the safety key fully into the display. Treadmills with keys are designed not to turn on without the safety key in place.
    • 3 Find the circuit breaker on the front of the frame and make sure it is not tripped. The circuit breaker is a vertical switch on the 98CS and a horizontal switch on the 980 Interactive Trainer. Press it to the "Reset" position, which will be labeled.
    Reed Switch
    • 1 Unplug the treadmill and remove the safety key.
    • 2 Move the upright base of the treadmill down with the help of another person and lift the uprights so that you can get to the underside of the console. Use a Phillips screwdriver with at least a 5-inch shaft to remove the screws. There are five hood screws on the 980 Interactive trainer and four screws on the 980CS.
    • 3 Remove the motor hood to get to the small reed switch by pivoting the hood off the frame. Find the reed switch and magnet, which are on the left side of the pulley for both models.
    • 4 Turn the pulley with your hand until the reed switch aligns with the magnet. There should be 1/8-inch gap between the two. Fix the distance so that it is 1/8 inch by loosening the reed switch screw and sliding it to the correct distance. Tighten the screw.
    • 5 Reverse the directions to put the hood back on and the treadmill upright in the original position.
    Optic Sensor
    • 1 Unplug the treadmill, take out the key and remove the hood cover.
    • 2 Locate the optic disc and optic sensors. The optic disc is the only circular disc set between two optic sensors.
    • 3 Spin the disc with your hand. It must spin without hitting either of the sensors. Loosen the adjustment bolts that hold the switches in place with the included Allen wrench and adjust them to ensure they do not interfere with the discs' ability to spin. Tighten the bolts and replace the hood

    Thank you in advance, sincerely. Blessing.
If you need additional Help, please reach me.
