Dear Sir:
If you can the change the resistor is o.k ,depending about your skill in electricity or electronic.Remember when you change, but the exactly as indicated in the board. For example the resistor has color code, I can recomend you can buy some chart from Radio Shack, for you will see the exactly value+tolerance)Very Important+Power of resistor.

Meanwhile, if the resistor is Sparking, is indicating there are some short-circuit in the board. By that reason when you change the resistor if the trouble persist, you must send the board or call some service tech from some company for assist you in this problem

Other alternative that you have is RUN THE calibration SOFTWARE,that is coming with your equipment, the instruction most of them coming from the Hood of the motor, other your must use your Instruction Manual.This is important for easy Diagnose and Troubleshooting from your treadmill. Remember this very Complex equipment electronic.

sincerely. God bless you.

SOURCE: Nordic Track treadmill trips GFI.

Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the GFI to trip. simple test start the treadmill do not walk on a see if the GFI is tripped in it does trip then lubricate, then if after lubricate it still the you have a worn belt and possibly damaged deck depending replacement price and on what you paid for the treadmill it may or may not be worth fixing.

This sounds like a bad controller. If the machine is under warranty contact the warranty provider. The controller is not hard to replace if you are electrically inclined but it does require calibrating.

SOURCE: cant close my nordic track a2050.... its stuck

Does it close part-way? If so, it might be the same thing that happened to me. Make sure the incline is at zero. It will not close if the walkway is raised.

If that doesn't work, you might try disconnecting the incline motor screw (held in by a retaining pin and cotter pin), turning the screw one or two rotations and reconnecting it. I've had to do that in the past, but I'm sure it is not an approved solution.

Nordic track a2050 contol console lights but controls do notvwork


Remove the control panel and try to clan the board using isopropyl alcohol using a brush. Leave the board for one day so that it would get dry. Then install the control board back and check and check it. Sometime moisture acclimated on the control panel can cause such problems . If you didn't get isopropyl alcohol then put the control board in sunlight for one or two days. Then install the control panel and check whether it works or not. also try to replace all the switches on control panel board. you will get it in any electronic spare parts shop.Beside not to put it on direct sunlight it can cause problems to the display

NordicTrack Treadmill A2050, Will not work or turn on.


1) test the outlet wall , put a desklamp and see if work, if work the problem will be in the machine,
2) test the fuse inside for blown and replace with the same capacity
3) reset the circuit breaker inside.
4) test the power cord for open or defective.
Try again, if the machine NOT work, the problem will be in the power supply see the block atached.
God bless you

hi,
You have to check the Driver circuit board for the motor. There is motor control IGBT Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) in this board .If the IGBT is short then the treadmill will try to run without setting any value or witout pressing the start button. You have to check the OHMS between the seocnd and third of lead of the IGBT. If it shows less than 100 Ohms then the IGBT is short and you have to replace the same. Also you have to check the connection to the control pannel. Is there is any loose conatct. Remove the connection in the motor control board which go to the control pannel and reconnect it. Also check the speed sensor. In most of the treadmill you can find the speed sensor near the motor pully. Remove the speed sensor and clean it and the refix it. Remember one thing remove the power of the treadmill and leave it for 30 minutes then only oppen the treadmill. Because there is high voltage storage capacitors in the motor control board which will hold charge for some time even after the power is disconnected. i ahve added the picture of IGBT for your refference

ok

hi,
check the other push buttons on the control console. if found faulty replace it. it is the only thing u can do in the control console. if problem remains u should replace the control console with a new one. for that u have to consult the manufacturer.
do one more thing before consulting manufacturers, remove the control console put out its circuit board. using a hair drayer heat the whole board. do not over heat.. then re fix it and test it.
ok

Remove the console from the treadmill and remove the back
remove and replace the ribbon cables that run from the keypads to the control board (they are flat plastic strips that push into the board).
remove and replace all the connections on the console
reattach the console and calibrate by doing the following:
1. With the key off press the speed + and stop buttons at the same time and hold
2. place the key on and release the buttons
3. press the stop key once
4. press the speed up til it reaches 85
5. if your max speed is 10 mph then it should read about 9.8-10.2

If the keys will not work then the console is bad and would need replaced.

My Nordic Track treadmill has has 10 speeds (1mph


You should have a speed arrow up & down, this increases and decreases the speed in .1 mph. Try this control and see how the unit re-acts if the speed does not adjust in .1 mph increments or it stay the same either way it sounds like an upper board issue. Go to iconfitness.com go to customer service the replacement parts put you M# and will give part# and pricing.

Nordic Track Ifit Treadmill has power but walking pad not working


If everything on the display console is working correctly then we know it is either a problem with the wires from the console to the controller or the controller itself. In most cases this means you need a new controller. To verify, take off the motor hood and find the green circuit board called the motor controller. With the power on go into manual mode and push the speed up button to a slow speed. If you see an LED light with "spd ctrl" next to it flickering but the belt still does not move then we know the problem is with the controller sending the signal to the walking belt, in which you should check the wires that go to the motor. If they are connected correctly then we know a new controller is in order. If you do not see a flickering light then it means the speed signal never got there and the problem will be with the wires going from the console to the controller. This is called an upright wire harness.
