Treadmill stops running

We just acquired a Pro-Form ESP6 treadmill and it stops running after 5-15 seconds. Any ideas? Thanx, John.

    I have the same problem only I get an error code of E2. I do not have a owner's manuel so I have no idea what this is! I have the ProForm 725 Tl Treadmill.



    Good luck!

    The belt stops running after a minute or so but the motor is still trying to turn the belt but can't. Everything else is working the console etc......

    It seems like the motor does not have enough power to move the belt with someone on it. If you get off the belt it gets back up to speed fine. The deck does not have any obvious wear and the belt motor is not slipping at all.

    I share the same problem. It worked fine yesterday but today the belt wouldn't move unless I increased the speed but then it slowed, stuttered and the engine became more and more noisy, emitting a horrid burning smell. I tried running it at ever increasing speeds leaving it on 7mph for 10minutes or so but it still ended up slowing, stuttering and the smell became too frightful to leave on any longer.

    TREADMILL RUNS FOR 5 SECONDS THEN STOPS. I HAVE REPLACED THE BOTTOM CIRCUIT BOARD, BUT THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEM.
    THE SAME PROBLEM OCCURED UNDER WARRANTY AND A NEW TOP BOARD WAS SENT TO US AND THIS CORRECTED THE PROBLEM.

    The storage latch on the treadmill won't pull out so that I can get it out of storage position and use the treadmill.

I had simillar problem. I have proform 830 QT. My trademill stops after 10 minutes of work out. Everything shuts down and the circuit breaker pops out.

Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.

Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.

Back ground:- Contact proform customer service at 1-888-533-1333 (http://www.iconservice.com/proform/faq_tread.html) and buy the treadmil cleaning kit or lubricant kit which comes with a wand for easy application. It may cost you 35 dollars including shipping. If you need to fix your treadmil right away, use NAPA silicon spray 8300. Proform actually tells do not use it as it may damage your belt. However the specialst who came to fix my treadmill just sprayed it and collected 100 dollars. When I called proform they told me lubricating will fix it and its my mistake to not trust them. I guess they knew exactly what they were saying.

If you don't have the manual, see if the proform website has a PDF version available for download. They seem to have a lot of past models available. On our system (ProForm T10.0, PFTL0505.0) an E2 error meant the belt speed (according to the sensor) was too slow. The treadmill should come up to the selected speed within 7 seconds or this error is triggered.

Icon service turned out to be knowledgable and fair, although they can be hard to get ahold of on the phone. If you hold too long, then you are given a chance to enter your phone number. I had to contact them several times, and they did call me back each time I left my number.

Unfortunately several things can cause the belt not to run or not run well, so start with the easiest to fix items first like lubrication and tension adjustment (get a manual from the website if you don't have one--it covers this adjustment). Maybe clean the speed sensor wheel with compressed air or a q-tip (our model had a slotted wheel on the drive shaft which spins through an LED light detector).

If the speed is off, try calibrating the treadmill. Icon service can tell you how to do it (it's not in the manual).

If it stops with no one on the belt, it sounds like the sensor is unplugged or not working. It is also possible that one of the other electrical connections that carry data is damaged or not plugged in properly.

My preform treadmill isn't starting, how do I fix this problem?


If it tries to run for a second or two and stops it will probably be the speed sensor. It is a small magnetic switch that is activated by a magnet on a flywheel that drives the belt. The control board looks for this signal to set the speed of the belt, without the signal the belt will stop. A competent DIYer could probably find and fix it but make sure the machine is unplugged from the wall before attempting any work.

I have a Sears Pro Form 730si. The treadmill


I believe E4 on ths 730si means that the speed of the motor the sensor is detecting is greater than the set speed. E2 would be the opposite. I believe there is a way to calibrate the speed. Look at the smaller motor controller board.
