Question Pro-Form Power 995 treadmill fan won't start

Hi all,

Does anybody have a Power 995 service manual or know where I can get one? The fan won't start at any speed and I'm not hearing any attempt to spin. I don't know if it has a fuse or how I might be able to easily test the fan and wiring.

Thanks for any help!

Mike

Thanks very much! It doesn't seem to have a fuse, so I'll have to figure a way to test it or just buy a new one. A little expensive!

Just jump the fan. Let it run all the time. It can't hurt. Years ago when cars started to use electric fans, I did that on an Audi.

These machines use proprietary designs which means there won't be any service manuals online for them.

I would use a voltmeter and see if the fan motor is getting voltage. It's very possible it's a board problem.

Thanks again for your comments. I will check with a voltmeter and maybe try to jump it if it's not dead.
