I was looking for a basic treadmill--nothing fancy, not too big, quiet, uncomplicated. This met my needs. I use it daily and it's been just right for me.
About six months after purchasing this treadmill, it started making a bad burning electrical smell... After troubleshooting with the manufacturer, it was decided the problem was in fact the motor. Unfortunately, the warranty is through sears. After speaking with sears, the only way to have the motor replaced is to have a technician come out (at my expense - one hundred bucks) and diagnose the problem. If the motor is faulty and replaced it's probably going to cost one hundred fifty bucks. So how much is it to just buy a new motor? four hundred fifty dollars. Really? Fifty dollars more than I spent on the treadmill? Really? Buyer beware... If it wasn't for a failing motor that costs way more than necessary to repair (even though it's under warranty), I'd probably rate the treadmill five stars.
this is my second pro-form i've owned. my first one bought 12 yrs ago and it worked with no repair all that time. i ran and walked on it and it was awesome. sold it only b/c i wanted a new one. no other issues. this one just purchased is absolutely fantastic! i'm a bit older so running is not the first priority on this machine, mostly fast-paced walking on incline. a joy to have even my husband gets on it and he prefers the outdoors so that's saying a lot. i recommend this treadmill for all purposes and ages.
THE LAST ONE I HAD WAS BETTER THAN THIS, DON'T NO THE MODEL
I would recommend the treadmill but would like to upgrade the bike. How would I do that?
