I have a Nautilus NR 2000 that I recently moved from one

Customer: Tension does not increase or decrease. Machine makes noise but tension never increases

This sounds like a problem that we see a lot after someone moves with their equipment. And what you have already done seems to validate that it might be the case. What I would suggest doing is checking the continuity of the individual wires that go from the console to the motor control board in the base. Sometimes these wires can be worn from rubbing against the metal in the frame, and sometimes they can get pinched or disconnected somewhere when disassembling and assembling. If you find that the continuity is ok, then go to the controller board they are connected to and make sure it is sending voltage to the motors and that the voltage varies when the controls are operated. If not, then the controller board needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.
