Q:

How do I reset a resistance motor on a Pro-form XP 70 stationary bike.

A:

Well something that would have this kind of troubleshooting information will be in your owners manual. I know exactly how hard it is to keep track of all the owners manuals in your home but something that is very handy about Manage My Life is that you can find just about any manual on here. All you have to do is go to the top of the page and click on the tab that says "MANUALS" in the search box type in your model number then you manual will be available for you to view. I have attached the link below for you to view while waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps!

I am sending you an image showing how to adjust the tension for your resistance motor.

If the resistance motor is not running at all you might have a broken wire in the harness between the resistance motor and the console. I would disconnect both ends of the wire harness and test the continuity of each wire. Check for shorts between any of the wires as well.

If the wire harness is good you will probably need to replace the resistance motor.

Jimmy, Thanks for your response. The tension wire is connected. I can't seem to get the side panel com,pletely off to adjust the check nuts with the pedals being in the way. Do you have a tip on removing the pedals?

A:

The pedals have an area next to the crank arm for placing a wrench on them. The pedals are threaded into the crank arm. The right pedal turns counterclockwise to remove, the left pedal turns counterclockwise to remove.

I managed to get to the jam nuts. Now the tension wire is very loose. I can hear the resistance motor moving but it does not seem to be moving much. Turning the pedals I still feel the same tension.

A:

The tension motor should move the bracket with the magnets on it closer or away from the flywheel. There is a spring that pulls the bracket away from the flyweel when the tension motor relaxes pressure on the cable. There are 2 jam nuts on the end of the cable for adjusting the tension. If the tension motor is running and not moving the cable, something has broken inside the tension motor and it will have to be replaced.

A couple of more questions and then I will quit. When I turn the pedal and change the resitance the tension or resistance motor moves but not the magnets. Does the tension motor move or should it be stationary. Because if it is not supposed to move I think it has broken from the bracket?

A:

Ask as many questions as you need to. The tension motor should be attached to t bracket and securely mounted to the frame of the bike. If the tension motor is moving that would keep it from moving the magnet bracket.

A:

That means my tension motor is broken from the bracket. When I order a new tension motor do I need to order a tension cable attached or can I reattach the cable already there.

A:

The tension motor does not come with a tension cable attached. You will need to remove the tension cable from the old tension motor and install it on the new motor.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your exercise stuck on one resistance setting. We are here to help. Marc did provide you a link to this type of problem. I suspect either the console is bad or the new resistance motor is bad. There are 2 ways to check this out. If you have a meter, set it to read DC volts. Next, connect it to the power wires that supply the tension motor. Now press the resistance increase button and see if the meter is reading voltage (about 6-9VDC). If you do not have a meter, you can take a 9v square battery and connect it directly to the motor to see if it moves. If the motor moves, then power is not coming from the console. If you check it with a meter and you get power to the motor but no movement, then the motor is bad. The first image is a wiring schematic to help you with the test. The second image below shows how to calibrate the resistance. I hope this helps.

A:

John thanks so much for the schematic. I Connected a 9v battery to both motors on the blue and yellow wires and both motors seem to work. The schematic is very small and when printed and zoomed I have a tough time reading. I will try to measure the resistance voltage to see if it is the console. Do I measure on the blue and yellow pins/wires on the harness at the motor end? I guess I can measure at the console as well? I need an extra pair of hands so I'll wait for my son tomorrow....Again thanks...stevel

A:

Steve, The continuity test you already performed should rule out the harness. However, you can test that wire with voltage, to make sure the wire is not breaking down hot. That has been know to happen. Since the motor is working with the battery, I suspect a bad console.

A:

John...We tested for voltage out of the console and could only get a reading when resistance position went from the 9 to 10 setting. I suspect it is the console. We cracked the console and looked for loose wires and none to be found. How much is a new console and how do I return the motor I purchased? Any other thoughts? Again thanks...steve

A:

Steve, The console cost is 182.99. The part number is 219322. The motor is not returnable. Sears does not accept any parts that has been installed. We do not sell parts for troubleshooting. That is the same as every company that is in the parts business. The Sears parts dept customer relations handle all returns.

Q:

I have a Proform excercise bike #831215010 and it only has one level of resisitance. In the idle mode, or off mode, is the magnet up against the flywheel?

A:

I understand how this can be really frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I suggest you set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!

A:

When the resistance is set to a low level, the resistance motor should relax and the spring should pull the magnets away from the flywheel.

When the resistance motor doesn't run, it is usually because the batteries are weak. The batteries can be strong enough to light the display, but not strong enough to run the motor. Always replace the batteries first.

Before replacing the resistance motor, disconnect the wire harness from the console and the resistance motor and check the continuity of each wire from end to end. You can buy a volt/ohm meter for around $20.00. Check continuity from each wire to the other wires. If the wires are pinched and shorted, the resistance motor won't run.

I am sending an image showing how to adjust the tension of the resistance motor and also the wiring schematic of the bike.

I hope this helps.
