Customer Question

I am looking at solutions for stuck ramps on proforma elliptical. Ours was stuck at the top for several months then fixed itself one day. Then several months after that it is now stuck at the bottom. When this first happened to ours nobody was asking about it on the net. Now I see a few questions. At this point I am just reading others solutions.

Hello Hugh,

This seems like a problem with the resistance.

First, you will need to check that none of the mechanical parts or belts have come loose, preventing the resistance from working correctly. If everything is intact, then the magnetic resistance system likely has a fault and will require a repair.

I can change the resistance settings. i think the resistance system works just fine. I can't change the ramp. most people are suggesting something wrong with the reed switch. However, i dont know how to get at the ramp motor.

Hi Hugh,

The motor is item 13 on the following diagram.

The reed switch is item 38.
