I have a lifefitness elliptical that keeps restarting.

Customer Question
I have a lifefitness...

I have a lifefitness elliptical that keeps restarting. Sometimes before the program is selected. Sometimes now when the program is underway. Restarting almost makes it worse. It is intermittent.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Lifefitness. Probably 10 years old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

For a couple of months. I have unplugged the machine. not sure what else can be done.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Equipment Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of
