If the display stays at 1, then the UP button may be at fault, in which case you would need a new keypad.

Resistance


This could be caused by either a bad lower electronic board or the brake/generator. I am attaching a link to the service manual for you for further reference. http://www.sportsmith.net/images/product_support/precor/Service%20Manuals/Commercial%20EFX/Service%20Manual,%20C546i%20Self%20Powered%20EFX.pdf

Resistance does not increase


please read the instruction and fix it. God bless you



Check your owner's manual for diagrams and definitions. You'll need this information when you put the elliptical back together. You'll also want definitions in case you need to call the customer support line for assistance.

Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.Test with the magnet from a refrigerator, If the magnet attract and repulse, is o.k If not replace the magnet.1_21_2013_5_29_53_pm.gif

Reebok RL 1500 elliptical lost all resistance


I had the same exact problem, and I mean the EXACT same problem. I also changed out the battery with no change. I contacted the generator company thinking it might be that, but they told me it could be the control board. I ordered a control board, changed it out, and now it works like new.

To sum up: Get a new control board.

How do I fix my crosstrainer, magnetic resistance has stopped working


This happened to me and I took the wheel mechanism cover off to discover the tension motor cable had come out of it's pulley guide- so there wasn't enough tension left in the cable to pull it away from the wheel- quite an easy fix for me- hope it is the snake for you!

Why does the resistance on my elliptical randomly go to OFF while working out


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.
