Do not buy this elliptical

        Comments about ProForm 7.0 RE Elliptical:

        This ProForm 7.0 RE elliptical had a catastrophic mechanical failure after only 4 months of light, occasional usage by a 60 year old woman weighing about 150 pounds.

        Since the warranty had expired about 30 days before it failed, the manufacturer had no interest in trying to resolve the problem. The replacement parts to fix it would cost more than the original price of the unit when it was purchased.

        The grooved metal sleeve of the front axle for the drive mechanism over which the drive belt attached just crumbled into pieces. Additionally, while taking apart the elliptical to diagnose the problem, the head of the screw holding the right pedal arm to the rear wheel sheared off leaving that part useless as well.

        Both of these parts were assembled by the factory and were not part of the assembly required by the purchaser. Obviously the metals used in this elliptical are of very poor quality.

        Due to the poor quality of the product and lack of response from the manufacturer we will not be purchasing any more products from this manufacturer.

        Comments about ProForm 7.0 RE Elliptical:

        I bought this machine about two months ago. It wasn't very difficult to assemble, but my husband and I were doing it together, definitely need a second person like it recommends.

        It doesn't come with a power source, so you either need to purchase a power adapter or get batteries, which are pretty expensive - the guy in Sports Authority didn't tell us that it didn't come with a power source, so it couldn't even be used properly until we got batteries.

        Within two weeks the console broke (buttons wouldn't work and it wouldn't shut off by itself, so it drained the batteries), which was luckily still under warranty. (Side note, the plate that the console is attached to was completely bent out of the box; that doesn't seem to have had anything to do with the console breaking, but shows how poor the workmanship and quality control is. Also, the console does not have a backlight like the photo shows.) Customer service was great and they sent us a new console along with a power adapter for free.

        Things seemed to be looking up, but once we installed the new console the machine was squeaking so loudly. I took it partially apart, doused it in WD-40, but it still squeaks and groans like it did before, which is driving me crazy.

        Overall, not completely regretting the purchase, since it was one of the least expensive machines in the store and does technically work, but for the price it should work as intended without so much hassle on the customers end! It's at the point where I keep a can of WD-40 and a hex wrench next to the machine and have to grease it or tighten the bolts every single time I use it. I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS MACHINE! Spend a little more on a better quality elliptical!

          What a great product! Not sure what others meant about difficulty assembling. My father-in-law and I knocked it out in about an hour. Instructions were EASY to follow, and all the parts were there. The only thing I would say is that all bolts require Allan keys which are provided, but in order to really tighten everything you need something stronger then provided. The bolts are tough when they are almost secure.

          Extremely quiet, doesn't rock or move at all.

              To start, this was broken straight from the box. The wheel covers were cracked and rubbed when in use so they had to be removed. The machine was quiet for about one minute before the squeaking started and now has only gotten louder. No amount of tightening or grease will make this peice of junk stop squeaking. This brings me to the cheap screws they used to put this together. All of them are almost completely stripped because of their poor quality, so any more tightening is out of the question. Don't waste your time or money on this one. If I could give it zero stars I would.

              Comments about ProForm 7.0 RE Elliptical:

              I waited a bit before writing this review. Frankly, I experienced everything previous reviewers experienced. I bought the equipment with 2 years warranty. Hopefully I won't have to call for service.

              Out of the box, the machine comes in a few large pieces and many small pieces that requires the instruction book to figure everything out. Unfortunately, the instructions are black and white and much of the details are not immediately apparent. Also a few steps are not in the right order. It took myself and my wife about 3 hours to assemble and then to our horror, we got a few extra parts. After studying the instruction, we realized we missed some details. We had to take it apart again to put those parts in the right place. We debated if they were needed, but eventually spent the time to put it in. Totally assembly time was 4+ hours!!

              When we started using the elliptical, we notice some rubbing noise from the wheel. Upon investigation, the plastic cover is warped and is rubbing against the frame. I tried prying the warped cover, but no luck.

              Two days later, we noticed a loud cracking or squeaking sound from the front base. The noise was really loud and unbearable. I loosen up the two base screws, realigned the base and retighten the screws several time before the noise went away entirely. Seems like the base wasn't aligned perfectly.

              Now, I got a pretty good and quiet machine. Yeah, the rubbing noise is still there, but it is bearable and we eventually got used to it. It isn't that loud.

              For under $400, this is a good machine. I see a lot of negative reviews, but people need to understand this is one of the cheapest items on the market. If you want an extremely quiet, stable machine with all of the bells and whistles, then you need to spend $4000. If you just want to workout a few times per week and get your heart pumping, this elliptical is just fine.

                  Poor machine with clicking sounds since day one. The sounds become louder and louder. The experience to request repair service under the first year manufacturing warranty is even worse. The customer representative require serial number to schedule a technician for repair. However, the serial number is stamped underneath of the machine. To take the number, the machine must be flipped over. Otherwise, no service will be provided even under warranty. If the serial number is so critical to schedule a service, why is it designed underneath the machine and cannot be seen on the surface? If the design of serial number underneath is not reasonable and has been realized, as the representative manager has admitted and all customers already complained, why is it still a must to schedule a repair service? The only conclusion is that the manufacturer does not care about customers and would be reluctant to provide service to customers. Not a reliable machine and not a reliable warranty. Now decided not to purchase any equipment of Pro-Form. Won't recommend the brand to anybody. Disappointed!

                  Loved it at first but broke after only six months do use. Metal bracket snapped apart for no apparent reason other than cheap material and / or poor workmanship. Icon fitness / Pro Form stated it was no longer covered under warranty and wanted a small fortune for the part. I did not order the part. Instead I will purchase another brand of machine than will not need repair every six months.

                      There is a VERY loud squeaking noise coming out of the Main Frame and the Handlebar Post connects which is very irritating. Buying this equipment is a complete waste of money and is not cheap either. I'm calling the manufacturer and see if i can have it replace. I bought the Sports Authority extended coverage but the coverage doesn't cover this problem..GO FIGURE!!!
