My proform crosswalk 590 circuit breaker keep turn off after run for five mins


Have you lubricated the walking belt & deck?? Are the deck and/or belt worn out and require replacing??
Check the deck for damage and wear, check the belt (feel the outer edge and then the center. Is the center fuzzy??)
If the deck and belt are good, lubricate them and try again.
Is the belt to tight??
Are you using an extension cord??
The machine is drawing too much current, usually deck & belt or defective motor will cause your breaker to go..

Electric motor overheats


This machine has what they call a thermal switch. It is designed to
shut the machine off if it gets too hot. This heat is caused by
friction. Friction is caused 99% of the time by the walking belt or
the drive belt. If it is the drive belt then it can be solved by
either applying a treadmill lubricant (must be made for treadmill
belts) or by purchasing a new belt. If you feel the underneath side
of the belt and you feel a screen door type feeling you just need
lubricant. If you feel a smooth surface you will probably need a
new belt. If you have lubricated in the past year and your belt has
the screen door feel then take off the motor hood cover and check
the drive belt. If it is worn then you will need to replace that.
You can purchase either of these products from the manufacturer, at www.iconservice.com. a couple of other places that may have them for discounts are www.ebay.com, www.fitnessrepairparts.com, or www.treadmilldoctors.com.

My treadmill shuts off after about 8 minutes of use


The motor controller weakens over time because of the excessive amperage draw of the motor do to lack of lubrication (which wears the walk belt and walking deck).

Take an amperage reading of the motor it should be 2-3 amps with no one on it, with someone walking on it it should be around 6-12 amps. I would bet yours is elevated above 6-12 amps.The controller is dropping output because of the friction problem.

The first thing to try after testing the amperage is to lubricate the walking platform. Then retest and see if the amperage comes down and it doesn't shut off.

If it does then the next step would be to replace the walking deck. If the amperage still is up you may need to replace the walk belt second and finally if after replacing the deck and belt, if the unit is still shutting down replace the motor controller.

My question is, last night, I set the speed to 5mile/hr, the treadmill automatically stopped after 12mins( the belt stop, power was on). and I can not restart it immediately, Then after 5 mins, the belt...


A treadmill will shut down from to much friction which is due to high motor current because the walkbelt and deck are not properly lubricated. I would recommend replacing the motor controller,walkbelt,deck and applying .5 oz of lubricant on the deck every 3-6 months or 100 hours of use. This will extend your treadmill's life many years.
