Customer Question

I have a proform Tour de France (pfex01311). Strange issue. Everything starts out fine then shortly into the workout changing gears or elevation lags behind. To the point that I thought it had stopped responding then all of a sudden the changes started catching up. if I turn the bike of and back on again I'm fine for a few minutes then he same thing occurs.

2 questions:
1- you referenced a motor driver board... This is a spinning bike.. Does my bike have this part? Also The name of the place you sent me infers treadmill parts.
2- do you have a part number? The closest thing I see on that site is motor control board but I see nothing for my model... Or any bikes.

Good morning, My apologies, this is the second time this has happened the site was slow in response to a question I was working on. So accidentally you received the wrong answer, I really do apologize for that. But you bike is in need of a new main control panel(console). Once again, still no soldering needed, it just plugs in to the bike ;-)

The console is failing and therefore can not keep up any longer.

You can get that from Treadmill Doc as well ;-)

Once again my sincere apologies for that issue, it has happened once before, it seems to happen when the site is super busy and yesterday was one of those days lol.

Thank you and have a wonderful Sunday!

Please rate kindly.

Tech Michael
