There is a knob about halfway down or up, depending on how you are looking at it. You need to lift up or push up a little bit to take the weight off the locking pin, as soon as the weight is of it should pull out about 1/2 of and inch. Be careful ALL the weight of the walk deck is now in your hands. Be prepared to lower it, and use your second hand immediatly anfter you pull the locking pin out. After the walk platform starts to come down, let go of the locking pin, it has a spring to pull it back, but the pin only fits in ONE hole in the prop rod, so it wont grab on the way down. Some treadmills have a dampening shock to allow the lowering of the walk deck slowly, and some do not. So again BE CAREFULL, this could hurt you if it falls on you.

Hope this was helpfull

Why won't my treadmill incline or decline?

Hi there, checked both upper and lower bolted connections, and check that lift motor hasn't cracked and frame is intact with no blockages to a possible scissor arm-lift assembly underneath the unit ? If this all checks out, maybe a small gearbox on the lift motor failed internally. Good luck.

Pro-Form Crosswalk 395 - Incline goes up and down with no tread movement. Calibration doesn't work - only on display.

test the main board, with the output voltage from board for input voltage motor. If there are NOT voltage the board is faulty.replace see the block diagram, how the main boad control about 80% of the machine motion.

My Pro Form 580 XP slows down suddenly while on, and speeds up again almost making me fall off of it. Anyone know why this could happen? The manual is no help.

If you have not ever lubricated the running deck then I suggest doing so . What happens is that the lack of lubrication will tend to make the belt drag thus slowing down the belt making the motor control board to try to compensate the drag.
