Hey there,

If your treadmill has an optical speed sensor and hasn't been cleaned for a while, dust, dirt or lint may be obstructing the infared eye of the speed sensor. Try cleaning the treadmill.

Or maybe you need to replace the upper display, although, you may have a loose wiring harness that would cause the same problems. Open the motor case and verify the wiring harness is plugged into the lower board snugly. Also, remove the upper console and verify the harness is plugged into the back of the console snugly as well.

Definitely, inspect the components and try and isolate the source of the problem yourself first, before contacting a dealer for parts, as they can cost a fortune..

Good Luck!

1897 Yamaha Fzx 750 runs but stalls when put in first gear. Was working yesterday...


Saftey circuit issue! check clutch switch, side stand switch and wiring these are connect to the neutral light switch and the 3 are part of the saftey circuit,
circuit is designed to cut the bike out if the stand is down and you kick it in gear also to stop the bike turning over & jumping forward when you hit the starter and its in gear and the clutch isnt pulled in.

weak stand spring my not be pulling stand onto the stand switch correctly there fore no making the curcuit, switches just make and break the curcuit.

MY DUCTED HEATING KEEP TURNING OFF MY SAFTEY SWITCH EVERY 5 MINS IT A BUFFLO BRIVS , IF I TURN THE HEATER OFF IT WILL NOT TURN OFF THE SAFTEY SWITCH


If you mean safety switch as in your breaker in your home panel than you have a short in the heat strips and it will need to be replaced or re-strung.
