We purchased a Pacemaster Elite about 6 years ago and expected a 1900 dollar unit to last much longer when it was not utilized very much. The circuit board went out and made the unit useless. Incline programs no longer work.
If we were avid users that stressed the unit a lot, I would better understand the short life but it gets unused most of the time. Then we start using it and within 6 months it became worthless.
