    Recommendation is to run calibration software.This is a used machine and under the motor cover was an empty plastic bag attached to case.I can't find those instructions online.I do have users manual.Speed sensor works good.

Dear Sir:

I STRONG recommend RUN the calibration Software Inmediately, for eay Diagnose and troubleshooting, most of them instruction has coming in the Hood of Motor, follow the instruction or use your instruction manual.

Adjust the sensor speed attached the diagram. Tight the wires from sensor speed. The sensor speed can be faulty. Adjust the Pot with the gear in the same motor, both can be faulty. And finally the main motor board can be wrong. sincerely.

God bless you.

SOURCE: When standing on treadmill, if incline # ie:5 is entered, bed raises, pauses, then lowers back down while #5 continues to be indicated. this occurs with all incline #s but not a problem if I'm not sta

If your incline is not working it can be a few different things.
1)There may not be any signal from the console which could be a damaged cable tight the flexible cable vs keypanel( spray too with contact cleaner spray) vs display board.
2) the console itself has failed :tigh the connector comming to lower board (main motor controller board).
3)The motor control board may have failed from a worn treadmill belt and deck(exchange it) Test if the Voltage with DVOM is there present 120VAC
4) the motor may have burnt out Test the motor with 120VAC.
5)also a potentiometer geared to the motor so the console knows what height the incline is at ADJUST IT.
6) the gearing can slip, giving the console false information which can cause chassis damage FAULTY.

My treadmill won't go down the platform how to lower it please help


If it is stuck in the incline position all you need to do is re-calibrate most of the time

The first step to re-calibrate the incline. ProForm provides calibration instructions in the treadmill owner's manual.

Hold down the "Stop" button and the "Speed" up button. Insert the safety key into the console then release the "Stop" and "Speed" buttons.

Press the "Stop" button then press either the "Incline" up or down button. Wait while the treadmill raises then lowers the incline ramp. Press the "Stop" button and remove the safety key.

Hope this helps or solves the problem, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us at 888-713-2880 or visit us online at

Incline problem


All icon models are the same. The easiest way to incline calibration is to start the treadmill, push the incline up button and then after you release the button, remove the safety key. Replace the safety key and the treadmill should calibrate.
If that doesn't work, press the stop and speed up buttons and hold, then place the safety key in place. This will bring you to the speed/incline calibration. Press stop again. now press incline up. This will run the incline calibration.
You may need to remove the hood and manually with a drill lower the motor. Using a slot screwdriver bit, lower the motor a bout 50 turns and then try the procedure above again if necessary.

Incline reads 0.0 but is not all the way down


Renee, Here is how to recalibrate the incline motor. Read all of it It will be good to keep.
Plug in your treadmill, do not stand on the walking belt. Hold down the "Stop" and "Speed +" key and insert the safety key or magnet, let go of the two keys. Now press "Stop" key once. This puts you into the level 2 of calibration. Press the "Speed +" key slowly until you see 85 on the console, (at this point the display is going to show the percentage of motor usage and also the actual walking belt speed) at 85% motor usage your top speed should be between 10 and 10.5 MPH or (of 12 and 12.5) depending on the treadmill. You must know your treadmills top speed. (Important the motor may be damaged if you set the maximum speed higher than the maximum speed that your treadmill is made for). If the speed is higher than 10.5 or 12.5 then you need to turn the potentiometer down to the correct level. If the speed it to low you need to turn the potentiometer higher. Once the speed is correct you are done calibrating the speed. Press the (-) speed key to lower the percentage to (0). Next press the incline (+) button, this will make the incline motor go all the way to the maximum incline and come all the way down to the level position. Then remove the safety key and the treadmill will reset into the normal manual mode, when you re-insert the safety key. Matt

The NordicTrack is a treadmill designed for in-home use. It offers a speed range of 0 to 10 mph and an incline range of 0 to 10 percent. It folds up vertically to save space when you aren't working out and can be rolled to a different room. The console has 16 preset workout programs and features iFit interactive technology. If you have problems with the console or walking belt, you can often fix them yourself with some basic troubleshooting steps
Instructions

  1. Power Turns Off When You're Using the Treadmill
    • 1 Check the reset switch on the bottom of the treadmill near the power cord. If it has tripped, the top of the switch will protrude. Wait 5 minutes then press the switch.
    • 2 Check that the power cord is plugged in completely. If it is plugged in, unplug it, wait 5 minutes then plug it back in.
    • 3 Remove the magnetic key from the console then reinsert it.
    The Console Won't Turn Off
    • 1 Insert the magnetic key into the console. Your C2500 is stuck in demo mode if the console won't turn off after you remove the magnetic key from the console.
    • 2 Hold the "Stop" button down for a few seconds.
    • 3 Press the "Speed" down (-) button. Remove the magnetic key.
    The Incline Does Not Change Correctly
    • 1 Press and hold the "Stop" and the "Speed" up (+) button. While holding the buttons, insert the key into the console, then release the buttons.
    • 2 Press either the "Incline" up or down arrow button. Wait while the incline raises and lowers. This recalibrates the incline system.
    • 3 Remove the key from the console.
    Walking Belt Slows
    • 1 Unplug your C2500 and remove the key from the console.
    • 2 Turn both rear adjustment bolts, located on the back of the walking deck, to the left, a 1/4 turn.
    • 3 Lift the edge of the walking belt in the middle of the deck. You should be able to lift it 2 to 3 inches off the walking platform. If the belt is still too tight, loosen the bolts another 1/4 turn each.
    • 4 Plug the treadmill in and reinsert the console key. Walk on the belt at a slow speed to see if it still slows. Repeat Step 2 if necessary.

Hello I have a Nordic Track A2050 treadmill and it has worked flawlessly till today, The unit was open (unfolded) and I wanted to close it because I nearly killed myself tripping over it, so I turned it on...


Hello there, The machine is attempting to do an incline calibration. Keep the unit lowered as you have it, reinstall the safety key, allow the unit to go all the way to the top and then all the way to the bottom. The machine will stop when at the bottom and the screen will go back to normal. The machine will not overtravel the incline motor and damage it. Just let the calibration finish the procedure and you will be fine.
Good Luck! Tim
FYI this will happen anytime the safety key is removed while the incline is moving on nordictrack brand machines.

Under the hood there should be a tech sheet with calibration instructions. I have not worked on these for several years or I would rattle off the procedure. If the sheet is still there make sure you put it back in the plastic sleeve for next time..... Eric
