Elliptical: Incorrect speed displayed

If the console doesn’t display the correct speed, adjust the reed switch closer to the crank arm pulley magnet. If the problem continues, replace the console assembly.

These repairs may help solve your Elliptical problem:

Adjust the reed switch

Reed switch

The reed switch detects a magnet attached to the rotating pulley to sense the elliptical's speed. The reed switch transmits the speed signal to the console, which displays the user data. If the console doesn’t display the correct speed, the reed switch may not be close enough to the magnet. Adjust the position of the reed switch.
