Q:

nonfunctional cross trainer console 831283180 Proform Proform crosstrainer, 56

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the console on the Proform. I know how frustrating that is.

Unfortunately, it appears the manufacturer has discontinued the console with no direct substitute. The only option I can see would be running an internet search for the original part number of 197570 to see if you can find one still in circulation online. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

This bike has a fly wheel and a resistance magnet that is shown in the first image below. You can access those components by removing the side shield. You will need to remove the pedal on one side to be able to take off the side shield. The owner's manual has assembly instructions that will help you remove the pedal. Here is a link for that manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual . The parts list diagram shows that side shield and the screws that need to be removed in order to take it off of the bike. You can view the part list diagram (and order parts) on this page: Proform 56 Cross Trainer Model 831.283180 Parts . I added the technical information for the console in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th images below. The 5th image shows the wiring diagram for the bike.

This information should help you examine the components and determine the cause of your problem. I did not find a video available that will show how to fix this bike. Hopefully the information that I provided will help you. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the bike, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

A:

Remove the shrouds on the lower end to access the resistance motor. Have one of your mechanics (husband or son) unplug the motor and see if voltage is making it down to the motor. It will be in the 9 volt range. While they have the meter connected try to change the resistance. They should get a reading on the plug to it. If they do not then there is likely a problem with the console or harness. If there is voltage then the motor has failed and will need to be replaced.

Let me know what you find out with it and we can proceed from there.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

I have the same problem with my cross trainer and took Wade's advice and checked the voltage at the motor connector. With 4 D cell batteries Im getting 5.6 volts. which seems correct at 1.5v per battery. I like to jump at replacing the resistance motor but I want to n=be sure I have the correct voltage Should it be in the 9V range?

A:

Yes, it should be in the 9volt range. You can use a 9V (smoke alarm) battery to make the resistance motor operate. You will need to cut the wires going to it and then connect them directly to the battery. On most models it's a blue and yellow wire set. The motor is a DC motor so you can connect it either way and it should move.
