There are a few different ways that you can turn off your ProForm elliptical. 

The first and the easiest one is to do the opposite of what you did to turn it on, to:

1. Stop pedaling

Taking a few steps forward on the machine should power up the display. By doing the polar opposite you get the opposite result.

So the simplest way to power off your Proform machine is to just step out of it and it should power off by itself.

If the pedals do not move for several seconds, a tone will sound and the console will pause.

However, if the pedals do not move for several minutes and the buttons are not pressed, the console will turn off and the display will be reset.

The nex method is to turn off the machine completely by pressing on the power switch to the OFF position and unplug the power cord.

2. Using The On/Off Switch On The Machine Itself.

If you own one of the newer Proform ellipticals that has a switch on the back to turn it off completely. 

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it can still be effective in limiting your machine’s use. 

The power switch on your elliptical is actually a switch that physically turns the machine on and off. 

This means that if you have a machine that has the switch on the back of the machine, you’ll need to move the switch to turn it back on.  

Bottom Line

Proform elliptical is considered to be one of the best ellipticals for low ceilings on the market today.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways on how to safely turn off ProForm elliptical.

There are also a few old tricks that you can use to turn off your ProForm elliptical, which is especially helpful if you own a model that has an on/off switch on the machine itself.

All you need to do is either turn OFF the power switch button and remove the power cord if it has one, if not just step off the machine and the console will turn itself off after several minutes.

Is There A Reset Button On ProForm Elliptical?

If you own a Proform elliptical model that has a switch on the back to turn it off, you’ll want to make sure that you also find and use the reset button on the machine. 

This button is often labeled as “reset” or “reset switch” and often placed near the on/off switch. 

Resetting the Proform console requires two people. 

First, press the power switch into the off position. Then, locate the small reset opening (A) on the back or the side of the console

Using a bent paper clip, press and hold the reset button inside the opening, and have a second person press the power switch into the on position. 

Continue holding the reset button until the console turns on. 

When the reset operation is complete, the console will turn off and then turn back on. 

However, if it does not, press the power switch off and then on again. 

During data entry for a program the Reset key performs a Previous Screen function.
