Proform 695 easy strider pfel069162 hard to pedal

Last week I got on on my elliptical as usual. I started to pedal and increase the resistance to 3. A few seconds later there was a pop and suddenly it was extremely hard to pedal. Everything else functions ok like the incline and the electronic screen looks like it always does. I took off top of the rear where the electronic board has a solid red light on. The belt appears to be ok so I assumed it was the resistance motor. I replaced it and it still is extremely hard to pedal. Even with power off and unplugged it's extremely hard to pedal. Does someone here have any other possible reasons for my problem? Thank you!


  • Could be a bad controller or maybe resistance adjustment cable.
