my golds gym stide trainer 410 console will not turn on by moving the pedals is it the reed switch
Make: golds gym
Model: stride trainer 410
adjusting reed switch
Yes it is most likely. You can test the reed switch to see if it opens and closes when a magnet goes by using a multi-meter and placing the leads on each wire then passing a magnet by the reed switch. If it gives a reading or the needle moves it is good (which means the console is the issue) or if it doesn't give a reading or the needle doesn't move then the reed switch is bad.Make sure the magnet is still in the flywheel to pass by. I usually find the magnet has fallen out and is stuck to the frame, therefore the reed switch won't activate the console.
