Do a Calibration on the treadmill. Take out the safety key. With 2 fingers, hold down the stop button and the speed up or spped plus button. keep holding them down as you insert the safety key, then let go of both.
Press the stop button 1 time, you should see all 0's in the windows, or EP 2P or something weird like that.
Press the Incline up button and then wait. If the incline go up until it stalls then down until it stalls the stops at the bottom, the you are recalibrated, take out the safery key and put it back in to see if all is well. If the incline takes off up again without touching a button, the you have wiring problems or control problems. Call service company to get it repaired.

i just called the manufacturer on this and found out i have a faulty control panel, but these are the steps they told me to go through to reset. If it works, then you are good, if not, you may also have a control panel issue.
1. plug in and turn on treadmill, keep red key out
2. press and hold the stop button and speed up button at the same time and hold them while you insert the red key
3. after red key is inserted, let go of both buttons
**CAUTION - be sure to stand on side bars of treadmill, clear of the belt for this next part bc it will go VERY FAST***
4. press stop button once
5. press speed up button until it reads 85 (see what i mean?!)
6. press stop button once
7. press incline down or up one time and it should get back into normal mode. mine just started a series of flashing lights and "8"s in all the "windows" so my panel needs to be replaced. here is the number i called - 1-877-993-7999. Good Luck!

MAKE SURE YOU STAND TO THE SIDE OF THE TREADMILL WHILE PERFORMING THIS
1)Connect the wall power to the treadmill
2)Remove the safety key
3)Hold down the red stop button and red increase speed button (this is the red triangle next to the start button)
4)Insert the safety key while holding both buttons down in step3
5)The treadmill will now go into a diagnotstic calibration mode
6)Let go of both buttons in step 3 and press the oval stop button once
7) Now press the up arrow green incline button once(This is located to the left of the yellow program button)
8) Allow the treadmill to go through a calibration cycle, once it completes and stops moving remove the safety key count to 3 and reinsert.

Unplug your unit take the motor shroud off and you will see a circuit board (Motor Control Board) their should be L E D s on the board. Now plug your unit in and you will see these light up if you have a second pair of hands that can help you have them press you incline controls.
You should see one of these L E D s light up followed with a click of a relay this activate the incline motor some of these boards will have a 3 amp fuse to protect the board from damage , if you see a open fuse replace it with the same exact fuse. If it blows again either you have a shorted armature winding or the worm screw is frozen. I would call Smooth Fitness, depending wiether this was made by either Sports Art Fitness or Keys Finess they will direct you to theproper parties.

Although it is fairly rare the incline motor can jam up into the highest position and get stuck there. To fix this take off the plastic hood that covers the incline motor and depending on the motor you should be able to wind it with your hand out of the highest position. When it is out of the highest position run the calibration as described in the owner's manual and it should go all the way up and all the way down. If it is not this type of motor that can be wound by hand then the first and last thing to do is to try calibration of the incline as described in your manual. If this does not work then a new incline motor is needed.
