1. You may have a worn belt and deck problem ( #1 problem on treadmills ). Test by the following procedure:
a) without the power on stand on the walking belt
b) push the belt in the direction it normally turns
c) if the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill) this means that you have high belt/deck friction.

You must physically inspect the belt and deck. The deck should be smooth. The belt should have a consistent feel from side to side (a belt can be worn out without any sensory signs of a problem). If you feel deep grooves in the deck or uneven wear on the underside of the belt, part replacement is necessary. Continued use of your treadmill may damage expensive electrical components. If their is no signs of excessive wear then the next step is to lubricate the deck follow this procedure:

Before applying lubricant, the belt must have the tension reduced and cleaned deck. Loosen the tension roller by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. Do not loosen the bolts in the tension roller too far or the bolts will come out of the roller shaft. This step may not be necessary for your treadmill model or belt and deck condition.
Contaminants are the worst enemy of your belt and deck. Some treadmills may have an excessive accumulation of dirt and contaminants. If these are trapped during the belt lube process, significant damage will occur. Lift the belt and slide a moist towel between belt and deck, slide the towel the length of the unit to catch the contaminants do this a number of times inspect towel and need be use a fresh towel and repeat cleaning let dry then apply the lube in the center upper third of deck then start unit and walk on it @ 1-2mph for about 5 min. You may purchase the lube from National Gym Supply @ gympart.com Part# TM001 or call them @ 1-800-496-7278 their on the west coast. At this point I believe your problem should be resolved if the above procedures have taken care of problem take a look at the next step, as mentioned the #1 cause of treadmill failure is lack of maintenance of the belt and deck.

On occasion, you may have already damaged the DC board if you have high belt/deck friction. If the belt walks freely, you have a different problem.

2. If it passes the belt/deck checks, you may have a DC board output problem. If the belt tests ok and you have a speed variation, try this test:

  1. Set the speed to 2.5 MPH. Let the treadmill run without anyone on the belt. Check to see if the speed is constant or if there is a variation.
  2. If there is no variation, step on the belt. If the speed slows down or speeds up, you may have an output problem on the DC board. This is the board that connects directly to the motor. Check the speed sensor if it is a magnetic sensor unit ( Under motor shroud usually attached on the left hand side of frame with 1/8' clearance between sensor and front roller pulley) you can test continuity with a multi meter or replace with a new part to test. Many times passing a kitchen magnet in front of the signal will make a speed display on the console if the magnetic sensor is good.

SOURCE: Only a couple of the program/adjustment buttons on

It sounds like either the function pad or the upper electronics is starting to fail. Also it maybe a loose connection between the function pad and upper electronics remove the upper console and inspect the connections. If you need to replace the parts sometimes with Icon products they are either separate items or they are one complete unit, you will have to call them @ 1-800-999-3756.

My Pro-form 980 CS will not start. I plug the key


Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. This should get you into calibration mode. Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test. If you cannot get into calibration or if the EPROM test fails then the upper console will have to be replaced.
If you get pass to this point then proceed with the calibrating the incline and speed.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
Be careful the treadmill will run at full speed in the next mode DO NOT STAND ON THE WALKING BELT.Press the Speed Up key and hold it down until 85 is shown in the Distance window (some models may show the 85 number in another window).
If the top speed of the treadmill does not match the displayed speed on the computer console, adjust the max speed potentiometer (pot) on the motor control board. This is the board that the red and black motor wires connect directly into in the motor area. The Max Speed pot is clearly labeled
The max speed potentiometer is a small square with a mobile center and is located in one corner of the board and is labeled MAX SPD. It is near the harness that carries the speed signal labeled H,W,L. Using a small insulated screwdriver adjust this potentiometer clockwise to speed up and counter-clockwise to slow down the max speed of the treadmill. A tiny turn of this potentiometer will make a big difference in speed so be careful when making adjustments.
It is not important to get the speed set exactly at the max speed of the treadmill but do make sure to get the speed within .2 MPH of the max speed of the treadmill. For instance if the max speed of the treadmill is 10 MPH, make sure to have the speed set between 9.8 MPH and 10.2 MPH. Some models have a 12 MPH top speed, so please check your manual if you aren’t sure.
After completing calibration of the speed, press the Speed Down key. The treadmill will automatically return to 0 MPH. Please allow the unit to stop completely before continuing. Press the Stop key once and remove the safety key.

Only a couple of the program/adjustment buttons on my Pro-Form 930i treadmill work. Sometimes I can push random buttons and the rest of the buttons start working for a few minutes, then after a few minutes...
