Question about Proform 650 Crosstrainer Treadmill

1 Answer

I have a Pro-form 650 Cardio CrossTrainer. All of the information on the display is displayed correctly but the resistance seems to be too high on level 1 and the resistance knob is difficult to turn once turning it to level 5 and anything above level 10 will turn back to level 10 once the resistance knob is released. How do I fix this?

Normailly there are 2 system:
1) Manual, see the belt if there are defective,try to put a Little LUBE it,since has a LOT of mechanical stress. Replace it if Necessary.

2) The small motor in the system, can be faulty or broken, replace it.However test the batteries if the system have, clean the contacts batterys, with special liquid clean contacts cleaner, and tight very well the connector, and clean too.

Blessing.

If you can hear the adjustment motor running the problem could be related to two things:
1. Broken or stretched resistance adjustment cable.
2. Broken bracket for the magnet return spring.
If the resistance is on maximum all the time the second issue is most likely the cause.

SOURCE: Pro-Form Crosstrainer XP 580 Board Failure?

Their is a sensor within the incline motor casing that may not be functioning thus causing the motor to repeat the cycle. You will most likely need to replace the incline motor.

Testimonial: "Max was spot on - I ordered a replacement incline motor and replaced it this morning. Our treadmill is working great again. Thanks, Max!"

Open the rear part where the "guts" are. The magnet will be stuck against the wheel that turns when you pedal because the cable that the resistance motor pulls to remove the tension will have too much slack in it. The cable probably came off of the pulley wheel that is used to providing the necessary tension to pull the magnet off of the wheel.

To get the case off, simply unhook the right side pedal, remove the 4 bolts holding on the crank thing to remove it, then using a philips head screwdriver, remove the screws in the screw holes on the case cover. Be sure to remove the one screw on the other side near the front in order to allow the front part to "unsnap".

The magnetic resistence level seems to be the same


This unit incorporates an adjusting motor for the magnetic boot. This unit also uses batteries for the upper console functions I would check the batteries first and replace them, if you haven't done so before.
If this does not resolve the problem then it could be the adjusting motor, then you will have to pull the the side panels in order to apply a 6v dc to the motor and see if it moves smoothly, if not then replace motor.

Pro form 450 cx keeps blowing fuse in plug top


Measure on the hot DC lead (usually red) going from the controller to the drive motor. If you have a simple multi-meter with a DC amp test setting the best way to test is to put the meter inline on the red motor lead with alligator clips. If you have a more expensive clamp meter, clamp the meter around the red motor wire. Run the machine at 2.5 MPH without a person on the belt. If the motor and drive system are healthy, you should have a reading in the 2-3 amp range. Then walk on the treadmill at the same speed. With a person of average size (around 200 lbs.) you should have a reading in the 6-8 amp range if the belt is good. The readings will fluctuate more with a load but you are looking for an average reading but you shouldn't see spikes above 10 amps. If the amp readings are high without a load, you could have a problem with high resistance in the motor, a bad bearing, or over-tightened belts. Regular readings without a load but high readings with a load indicate a worn belt and/or deck.
