How To Turn Off Proform R10 Rower?

There are two ways that you can use to turn off your Proform R10 rowing machine. 

The first and the easiest one would be to:

1. Stop Rowing

When you are finished exercising on your Proform machine, the console will turn off automatically. 

If the row bar does not move for several seconds, the console will pause and the time will flash in the display. 

And if the row bar does not move for several minutes and any buttons are not pressed, the console will turn off and the display will be reset. 

However, this is not going to be the same case if the demo mode is turned on. The console will not turn off and the display will not be reset when you stop exercising. 

Here is how to turn off the demo mode:

The currently selected demo mode option will appear in the display. The demo mode is designed to be used if the rower is displayed in a store. 

In order to turn it off, simply press the Quick Resistance increase button repeatedly to select a demo mode option

Then select DOFF to turn off the demo mode.

2. Unplug The Power Cord

The next method is to turn off the machine completely by unplugging the power source.

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it is still the most effective and safest way to power off your rower.

Proform highly recommends unplugging the power adapter, especially if you are intending to store the rower for an extended period of time. The electrical components on the rower may wear prematurely as a consequence of not unplugging the rower.
