Try gripping the handlebar contacts over the top, with your thumb next to your index finger instead of gripping it with your thumb under the handlebars.
Contact heart rate grips are not intended for continuous reading. Rather, try holding the grips for 10-20 seconds at a time for an accurate reading.
Static electricity can damage the heart rate grip receiver and/or grips and cause either an "HR" or no reading at all.
If you have doubt read your owner manual, and in short call to customer service from the manufactury of your treadmill. sincerely
