Customer Question

Ihave an ProForm J8 treadmill###-##-#### that will work, but after I have been on it 15-20 minutes it stops abruptly. Probably a tube inelectronics, & where so I get a kowledgeale repairman in the remote area of Starkville, MS?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Machine has been great giving me years of service but ihave not been able to use it for a coupleofmonths. Stops when Iam walking briskly,not running.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: That's above my pay grade. I can mow with anindustrial mowing machine.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: You know the story. I hate to scrap it- it has been well cared for and if electronics was fixed should keep on going and I need it in working condition. Thankyou.

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

There are not many firms in your part of Mississippi that will do repair work on a treadmill, not even the well-known brand of ProForm.

There's one in Tupelo, rather to the north of you:


Sears Appliance Repair

1001 Barnes Crossing Rd

Tupelo, MS 38804
