Dear Sir:

The most likely cause of the problem is a worn treadmill belt and deck.
Most of the time its caused from not lubricating 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.

Probably is getting overheated.... Also, I have seen some models that stop the workout when the belt is getting too worn out.... Perhaps you should look into replacing the belt. If the screen is losing power too, then it is definitely power failure (in which case, you should examine all the cords and connections.

hi.

the circuit breaker probably only covers the motor anyway, and if this is the case then the problem has been isolated already.
it sounds like the motor has burnt out, and there is a short in it somewhere. the best (and safest) thing to do is to remove the motor and either just replace it, or have it tested by an electrician.
most repair shops will happily test a motor for free if you take it to them. it should only take a few minutes.
take the circuit breaker to them as well, as it is possible to have a faulty circuit breaker.

please feel free to ask if you need more advice.

hope this helps

The term immobilize is on the display panel and I want to start it up. How do I get it going again?


When necessary to immobilize the treadmill, set display to read SELECT A WORKOUT. (Press the STOP Key
twice if not already there). Then hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill
now displays IMMOBILIZED. In this state, the treadmill cannot be operated. The main motor and incline are
disabled. The treadmill will remain in this state across resets, power cycles, etc. To restore normal operation,
repeat the same key sequence: hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill will
display SELECT A WORKOUT again.

Stops dead during workout


Dear Sir:

Most of the problem with this situation is lack of lubrication and regular maintenance.

The treadmill is very complex electronic equipment. The friction between deck vs walk belt is Enough for to protect the equipment, the electronic design shut down the treadmill, for to avoid damage to the electronic components.

2nd failure is main motor board. But you must lubricate your equipment, see your instruction manual or user guide. If you do not have you can download free from Nordic: www.Nordic.com, go to service customer, then parts%Manuals, give your model, etc, and download for free.

sincerely. God bless you

I bought a Reebok V8.90 with iFit cards. My problem is that the workout will stop multiple times during the workout. Then I have to start over. It seems that each time I start over I can get a little...


Dear Sir:

I hope your are very well in union with your family.

I will help you inmediatel.

Please do the following:

If you can walk on your treadmill but it shuts down during a workout, it is normally caused by a friction problem with the belt and deck.
Here are the most common symptoms and solutions:
1)
Symptom: The treadmill operates for a given period of time and the circuit breaker on the treadmill trips causing you to have to reset the breaker, or let it cool off then reset the breaker.

The amount of time required to shut down will progressively get shorter.

Solution: The walking belt is worn. The incline test is the best test for it if you don't have a way to take a
DC amp draw. Put the treadmill at full incline and walk normally. If it takes it longer to shut off or does not
shut off at all, you need to replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect the deck for wear too. If you want to
go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking belt. The best fix is to replace the
walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.
2)
Symptom: The treadmill will show power but after a given period of time, the treadmill will simply shut
down. Once you let it cool off, you can restart it back up but it shuts down faster and the time required
before it shuts down gets progressively shorter.
Solution: Your treadmill is most likely equipped with a heat sensor which shuts down the motor and/or
electronics to prevent them from burning up. If this is the case, replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect
the deck for wear too. If you want to go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking
belt. The best fix is to replace the walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.
3)
Symptom: The treadmill shuts down in an intermittent pattern...there is no rhyme or reason to when it will
shut down. I get an error code or nothing shows up on the panel. I have to either unplug the treadmill or
reset it to restart the treadmill.
Solution: If you get an error code, contact us with the code and make and model and we will try to help
you figure out what is going on. Typically we either find a loose wire, an intermittent short, a bad power
board, or a bad control panel in service calls that we do locally. Unplug your treadmill and then check all
your wiring to make sure nothing is pinched, crimped or loose. Remove and replace each connector in
case corrosion is causing.

Thank you in advance, sincerely. God bless you.

If you need further assistance,please contact us.

I have a Schwinn 815 treadmill. Today, during the middle of a workout, it stopped dead. The console display has no lights on. The only light that is on is the power switch light. Other than that,...


it sounds like the problem could be the wire from the console down to the motor control board has come undone or partly undone. you need to take the console off and see if the wires are conected properly. if this isnt the problem then the console might have fried somehow, possible from the same reason, the wires came disconnected and shorted out on something.

Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills


Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
