Question about Proform Crosswalk 500 Treadmill
Treadmill starts fine and will run at a low speed but cuts out when speed is increased and returns speed setting to 1mph. Is this related to the motor controller? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Most likely a bad drive belt. Take the cover off the motor area. If you see black dust near the left side of the motor, replace the drive belt.

You have to put the safety key in if you want to select speed/incline or predefined programs.
It starts and runs at full speed on that occasion because it's part of the maintenance process, that lubricates the inner rollers so that it will continue to work perfectly for as long as possible.

SOURCE: treadmill turns off
Check you Drive Motor : Get a fully-charged, 18 volt
(preferred) cordless drill battery and on most treadmills connect the red and
black motor leads to the battery If
good, the motor should operate at about 1 MPH. Or if you have a extra car battery-
these are 12 VDC high amp batteries so the motor will turn slowly but you can
walk on the belt. If you have the same problem it could be worn motor brushes.

1. You may have a worn belt and deck problem ( #1 problem on treadmills ). Test by the following procedure:
a) without the power on stand on the walking belt
b) push the belt in the direction it normally turns
c) if the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill) this means that you have high belt/deck friction.
You must physically inspect the belt and deck. The deck should be smooth. The belt should have a consistent feel from side to side (a belt can be worn out without any sensory signs of a problem). If you feel deep grooves in the deck or uneven wear on the underside of the belt, part replacement is necessary. Continued use of your treadmill may damage expensive electrical components. If their is no signs of excessive wear then the next step is to lubricate the deck follow this procedure:
Before applying lubricant, the belt must have the tension reduced and cleaned deck. Loosen the tension roller by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. Do not loosen the bolts in the tension roller too far or the bolts will come out of the roller shaft. This step may not be necessary for your treadmill model or belt and deck condition.
Contaminants are the worst enemy of your belt and deck. Some treadmills may have an excessive accumulation of dirt and contaminants. If these are trapped during the belt lube process, significant damage will occur. Lift the belt and slide a moist towel between belt and deck, slide the towel the length of the unit to catch the contaminants do this a number of times inspect towel and need be use a fresh towel and repeat cleaning let dry then apply the lube in the center upper third of deck then start unit and walk on it @ 1-2mph for about 5 min. You may purchase the lube from National Gym Supply @ gympart.com Part# TM001 or call them @ 1-800-496-7278 their on the west coast. At this point I believe your problem should be resolved if the above procedures have taken care of problem take a look at the next step, as mentioned the #1 cause of treadmill failure is lack of maintenance of the belt and deck.
On occasion, you may have already damaged the DC board if you have high belt/deck friction. If the belt walks freely, you have a different problem.
2. If it passes the belt/deck checks, you may have a DC board output problem. If the belt tests ok and you have a speed variation, try this test:
