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.

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.

When on treadmill there is a "studder"


Check if the running belt is lubricated. You can't run an engine without oil. So, spray a good quality silicone lubricant on the base of the running belt. It is best if you spray on a lint free cloth just enough to make a wet patch. Do it outside so that no spray residue lands on the floor and becomes slippery or lands on the carpet and stains it, then return inside and lift the treadmill running belt and soak or smear the base with the wet patch of the cloth and run for a full minute. Then lift the belt again and give it another swipe on the entire base, then feel the base with your fingers or hand to see if it feels wet and smooth. Run the treadmill for another minute at slow speed, otherwise the liquid can fly and splatter on wall or floor. If it still hasn't solved the problem, then it must be the motor brushes, or it may be set to run slow and fast according to the running settings on the console. Mine does the same thing if it is programmed to do 1 minute slow and one minute a bit faster. Good luck.

How to center walking belt?


Most treadmill belt adjustments are controlled by the bolts on the back of the machine on either side of track rails. Loosen opposite side of track while running and the track will move over and tighten when in desired spot. Be care not to have it running to fast or the belt will quickly move to far over. Running for a few minutes on hire speeds after adjustments are complete to make sure belt is not in need of fine tuning.

Cybex 520t treadmill runs for about 2 minutes then says end and quits running?


Dear Sir:
The most likely cause of the problem is a worn treadmill belt and deck.
Most of the time its caused from NOT LUBRICANTING between the treadmill belt and deck.
This causes friction and the surfaces wear putting greater stress on the electronics. The treadmill is shutting down to protect the electronics.

Remember the treadmill is complex electronic system. sincerely.

God bless you.

After walking for 10 minutes or so, or even sooner when I am jogging, the 921 loses power and trip my house circuit breaker. What needs to be replaced? Guessing it is the power cord as the 921 is 20...


Check your Amps on the circuit that is being tripped. The treadmill needs 15 Amps to run. If you have a 15 Amp circuit that is running the treadmill and other electronics (or lights), the circuit will trip. You may need to replace the circuit with more Amps.

My treadmill runs for 15 minutes than stops for a minute than start up for 10 minutes than stops, than start up


It is designed to be able to be restarted after about 5 minutes. When it stops, wait 5 to 10 minutes, reset the circuit breaker. Of course you still have the same problem.

The motor contoller board is most likely overheating do to friction, so you're going to need to lubricate the walking belt(this should actually be done every 6 months) you can order a kit on ebay for about 15-20 bucks, it's called " lube n walk ", and no, I don't sell it, but I use it on the treadmills I service.

I recomend you loosen the belt one full turn on each side before you lube the belt, apply the lube and run the treaadmill for one mile without anyone on it and then let it rest for a while.

After that give it a try. if the belt slips, then tighten it back up one turn, but don't over tighten it.

I also recomend using a single outlet surge supressor.

That should solve your problem.

Kettler treadmill "silikon wartung"


Hi eirik,

Your treadmill needs lubricating.
Get a an aerosol with silicone lubricant and spray it under the belt & on top of the ground board.
Then turn the belt by hand (treadmill switched off!) until you've lubricated the whole belt.
Next leave the machine running for 5 minutes at 5 KM/H (3 M/H) without any load on it.

That should do the trick.
