My incline trainer Xi9 will not go back to zero. I tried incline calibration and factory reset and it still stops at about 20 degrees. I have unplugged it and even tried pressing stop and + speed then connect the safety key

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

You have done most or all of the things that should be tried initially and are to be congratulated.

But, the way it looks, the device may need either repair (or replacement if you prefer.)

There may be a misaligned position sensor, or the mechanical linkage may be defective or have slipped and be incapable of being run back to zero position.

Or everything of the position sensor and mechanical linkage sort, may turn out faultless when examined, but there should in that case be an error in the motor controller board that drives the incline.
