Treadmill quits running after about 15 minutes

My treadmill quits running after about 15 minutes, when I am on it. If O am not on it, it continues to run with no problem.
So far we have replaced the lower board, the upper board, the deck and belt, the motor, the reset switch (twice) and the wiries between lower board and upper board.
what happens is that the power switch remains illuminated, but the reset switch trips, causing the display to go blank, and the belt to stop. Resetting the reset switch works for about 1 minute, then it quits again

Hey there,

If your treadmill has an optical speed sensor and hasn't been cleaned for a while, dust, dirt or lint may be obstructing the infared eye of the speed sensor. Try cleaning the treadmill.

Or maybe you need to replace the upper display, although, you may have a loose wiring harness that would cause the same problems. Open the motor case and verify the wiring harness is plugged into the lower board snugly. Also, remove the upper console and verify the harness is plugged into the back of the console snugly as well.

Definitely, inspect the components and try and isolate the source of the problem yourself first, before contacting a dealer for parts, as they can cost a fortune..

Good Luck!

SOURCE: My Freespirit also stops after a few minutes

Normally all these problems are in relation with motor itself, I mean, internal bearings, short circuit. So if your treadmill stops is bacause the circuit board detetecs an over current fron motor.

I hope help you

Hi.

If there is incline fault, then the sensor must be calibrated. The error may happen even if you do not do anything. sensor goes out of calibration and you get e5.

The only reset you can do is by disconnecting power and removing console batteries if installed (that depends on the treadmill model).

I suggest contacting Techogim and following the procedure to calibrate the sensor. Contacts are listed at the right hand side of this page, click: Contact Us.

SOURCE: treadmill is stopping after about

There are a few things that can cause the belt to stop running. First thing to do is check the lubrication and adjust the tension (get a manual from the manufactures website if you don't have one, it will cover this adjustment). Next, clean the speed sensor wheel with compressed air or a q-tip and apply Paraffin wax under the belt and adjust tension if needed.

Hi, my Pro Form 470cx has just started to stop when I walk on it intermitently. The belt is running perfectly until I stand on it and then it appears to stick instantly on the base causing a stall in the...


Susan,

The most common cause of belt slippage is lack of lubrication. Most treadmill belts use lubrication on the underside of the belt to reduce friction between the belt and the platform. This helps the treadmill glide along smoothly under the weight of a person. If your belt is lacking in lubrication, it can catch on the treadmill platform. Apply lubrication every few months to the underside of the belt to prevent this from occurring.

A petroleum or silicone based lubricant is recommended, and most easily applied in a spray can. Simply lift up the belt about midway along the platform and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath from about the middle of the platform width to the closest edge. Repeat from the other side. Apply lubricant sparingly...it can be messy.

Next, turn on the treadmill and let it run for a minute, then check if the belt still sticks. A little more lubricant may be necessary.

Hope this helps.

My reebok treadmill makes only three beeps when you hit the sensor buttons


Plug in power cord, remove key, hold down speed+ and stop buttons, replace key, release buttons, press stop once, press and hold speed + until max. treadmill will run to top speed (s9.80 should read out 11.8 to 12.5.) It took a couple of times to get this to work for mine, but now it is OK. If unit does not run after several attempts then the console is probably bad and will need to be replaced ($410). Get another treadmill ! If it does run the console may still beep - problem is with IFIT card. You can get rid of the beeps by opening the console and unplugging the IFIT cable from the computer card if you want.

How do i lubricant my treadmill


it is an indicator that the belt needs lubricating. turn the power off, and lift up one side of the belt and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath the belt, onto the running board. repeat this step on the other side. turn the treadmill on and run it for a few minutes to spread the lubricant. the oil light should now go off.
this should be repeated every 5-6 months to keep the board lubricated and to reduce friction between the belt and board and will lengthen the life of your treadmill.

Can i take my 2008 seadoo to the ocean and how do i flush it?


Yes, you can! and it's awesome! As far as flushing the salt water from the engine, you'll have to purchase an adapter for the water intake hose. This adapter has a connection for a garden hose, so when you connect the fresh water hose, turn the water on, start and run your jetski for @ 4-5 minutes. Then turn the water off and continue to run the engine (throttling up & down) to get the water out. Just like when you come out of a lake. Google for your specific model or go to a dealer. Looks something like this: click here
Hope this helps,
