The backlash or free play in the incline motor or gearing is likely making the calibration fail. I view the calibration as a "courtesy check" that the Nordic Track performs to let you know when some component is failing or has failed. It is annoying and inconvenient when it fails, but it is something like a "fix engine" light on a car. It is telling you that something needs immediate attention, likely needed to be done by a technician or repair person.

SOURCE: I bought a second hand Proform 14.0 CE elliptical.

FOLLOW this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clean the heart rate monitoring pads if the console is not displaying your heart rate when you grip the pads. Use a damp cloth and a mild soap to clean the pads. Do not use alcohol or any other abrasive cleaners that may damage the equipment.

Calibrate the ramp if the elliptical is not functioning properly. Press and hold the "Target Toning Workouts" button on the console until the calibration mode appears on the display. Press the "Target Toning Workouts" button once. The elliptical will display additional directions. Use the "One Step Power Ramp" increase and decrease buttons to raise and lower the ramp.

Adjust the reed switch by removing the access cover, which sits over the wheel of the elliptical at the back of the machine. The access cover can be removed with a flat-head screwdriver. Unplug the machine. The reed switch provides information to the console for display. Rotate the pulley until the pulley magnet, which is under the belt, lines up with the reed switch. The reed switch has a wire running into it. Loosen the screw to the reed switch and adjust the distance closer or farther from the pulley magnet. Tighten the screw. Plug in the machine and rotate the pulley. If the console still is not displaying correctly, repeat adjusting the reed switch distance either closer or father from the pulley magnet.

Adjust the drive belt if the pedals slip while in use. Unplug the elliptical. Lift the latch on the underside of the left pedal arm and slip it off. Use a screwdriver to remove the arm sleeve and pry open the disc panel. Loosen the pivot screw located on the left side. The belt tighten screw is below the pivot screw. Tighten the belt tightening screw until the belt is tight. Tighten the pivot screw. Replace the disc and arm to the elliptical

Why does my Nordic Track Reflex 4500 Pro incline automatically when I start it up?

You must tried again the s.calibration, for easy diagnose, and troubleshooting.
However you must Adjust the speed sensor, test it, clean it, and tight any plug or connector, see the diagrams attached and proceed according.
2) Lube the elevation motor, the shaft + gear, test the motor itself for open or short. see the diagram attached. If you machine use RELAIS test it for dirty, or open and repair.

On my nordictrack a/2350 the incline stoped working what could be wrong?

Follow the instructions found in your manual for incline calibration first. With the safety key/magnet in, press incline up, remove the key while the numbers are changing, release the incline button then reinstall the safety key. The incline should calibrate.
If the motor moves, then stops b4 completing it's cycle, the incline sensor may be defective. The sensor is the black cap/wire coming out of the top of the motor. Make sure it is connected properly.
If the sensor is defective, you have to order the complete motor to repair the problem The sensor can be replaced without replacing the motor, but it is not available as a replacement part..

Nordictrack apex4100i level incline will not work

Try this calibration procedure.
Turn the power switch on. Remove the safety key. Hold the Stop and Speed Up or Speed Plus buttons down then insert the safety key.
The display should show some numbers.
Press the stop key one time and the display should show some other numbers and some 00's. Press the Incline Up button and see if the Incline begins to move, if it does let it go all the way up and then all the way down, wait a few seconds after it stops, then hit the stop key 4 times. It should be calibrated. If it didn't move then the board or the incline motor is bad.
