Question about HEALTHRIDER Exercise & Fitness

Open Question

Healthrider S250i slows and stops when load on belt.

I have replaced motor control board, power board, motor, and double lubed the belt. The problem continues. The original motor would not caibrate to the required 10mph after replacing the motor control board (it only got to 1.7mph), but the new motor calibrated easily to the required 10mph, but will not hold up under a load. I do notice that if I have the treadmill inclined, it will accept weight, but not when it is flat. Time to scrap? I don't want to throw more money into parts. Any idea if I should do more to repair?

SOURCE: Just replaced the motor controller on my treadmill

You have one of three things wrong. Either a bad console, bad motor or a bad wiring harness.
If you have a flashing light on the controller when you attempt to start the machine then you more than likely have a bad motor. (this has a long warranty may be able to get one for free, check the back of your manual)
If there is no flashing light on the console then you will need to check the wire harness. This unit is known for pinching wires at the lower section where the upright connects to the lower frame. To check this you will need to remove the console. Three screws on each side and the wire harness on the right side will need to be unplugged. Then remove the right upright by removing the two bolt located on the bottom of the frame. Then do a visual inspection for pinched wires especially where the upright connects to the lower frame.
If the harness looks ok then you will more than likely have a bad console.

Good Luck! Tim

SOURCE: My Healthrider 400se Treadmill slows down after 10seconds

Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that is
UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor
(TVSS). The surge suppressor must have a
UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or less
and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules.
The surge suppressor must be electrically rated
for 120 volts AC and 15 amps. There must be a
monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate
whether it is functioning properly. Failure to
use a properly functioning surge suppressor could
result in damage to the control system of the
treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the
walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly,
which may result in a fall and serious injury.

SOURCE: Belt slipping on treadmill

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

Healthrider S500i HRTL12990 belt won't run


HI,
If you can then before replacing the Motor control board do one thing. Replace the IGBT on the control board. Igbt is the component which drive the motor. It will not cost a lot. The only thing is you should be very careful while working on the motor control board because there you can see two capacitors which is capable of store charge for a long period of time even the treadmill is unplugged. Before doing work on the control board you have to discharge the capacitor. If not it will lead to serious electric shock. You will get many pages on web to know how to discharge an electrolytic capacitor. I have add the picture of the motor control board with the igbt marked. You can find the part number written in its frond side. Replace the IGBT first.

The treadmill runs fine until i step on it then it stalls and stops running


There is a motor which spins the treadmill belt.When you start the treadmill, the motor starts running and belt spins smoothly.But when you step on the treadmill, the motor cannot take the load and it stops working.In your case, the motor and motor control board is got weak and this is causing the problem. ---------- Or the other possibility is the treadmill belt, the belt on which you step.That belt should be smooth, there is grease in the inner side of belt to keep it lube and run fluently.If that oily grease gets dried up then belt gets bit stiff or jammed up, when a load is on belt.So get this both possibilities checked.First try lubing the belt internally and then try check the motor and motor control board.To locate motor control board its simple.On the side of motor you will see a electric plug in connector, the other end of that connector gets connected to motor control board.Remove that connector , clean it and reconnect after 5 minutes, then check.In some cases this resets the internal control system and everything, works normally.But its not always possible then removing and reconnecting connector helps.In other cases the motor or control board needs to be replaced.If the motor gets weak, then internal coils in motor gets burned up.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Belt is not the correct speed when you put ypur weight on it...slows down.have to put on 5 to get a 3 walk?


If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 3 to 4 in. (8 to 10 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. . If the walking belt still slows then lubricate running deck the lube may be purchased from iconfitness.com
