Treadmill will not enter Factory Settings or Engineering mode. Can I reset the software? I spoke with Sole and they cannot help.

Idk how old your treadmill is but sole offers very good warranties on some parts even up to 5 years so maybe you can have them go out and repair it for you BUT from the sound of it they could not help you out so the only thing left is to do simple troubleshooting.

You can try just resetting the power switch, to off. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet and leave the machine be for about three minutes.

Reconnect and switch back on, then just Press and Hold the START, STOP, and ENTER key at the same time, until it displays "engineering mode" (it might say maintenance depending on the version) then just press the ENTER key.

If it works you can scroll through the menu with the SPEED UP and DOWN keys.

If it does not let you still, you might have an issue in your console and it needs replacing but it is not limited to just the console, there could also be an issue with a component on the Main Board (Circuit Board) or other electrical components.

Hope this helps!

Sadly we do not carry any sole products yet, but we would be happy to help you find a technician in your area to come out and help.

You can give us a call at 888-713-2880 or talk with us by chat at Good luck on the repair :)

I just put together a Sole f63 treadmill (it took forever). I turned the power button on and the display lit up. I pressed the start button and the display shut off. I can't get the display to turn back...

First of all, make SURE that the unit is NOT plugged into a ground fault circuit interrupt (GFCI) outlet. Make sure that the safety key (or safety tether cord's magnet) is on the round metal portion of the console control's head. (It will NOT operate without this in place because it's a safety feature. Also check the circuit breaker under the console, & push it in until it clicks (if it has been tripped (it would extend out if tripped)). Make sure that the power cord is fully inserted in the appropriate power outlet & that the building/home's circuit breaker has not tripped. Otherwise, call your dealer to replace what would be a defective treadmill.

Life Fitness 4000 repeatedly blows outlet circuit breaker

If there was a fuse in the treadmill it certainly wouldn't cause your main circuit breaker to blow. It sounds like the motor burnt out and shorted- which is causing your house circuit breaker to blow. There is a chance that the ball caused some other damage that is creating the short but my bet is on a burnt out motor. You would need to disassemble the unit and test for short circuits to verify.

Sole E55 console display flashing "Need Lube"

Got a Sole elliptical machine? Is it displaying a NEED LUBE error message when you turn it on? Tyler at Sole service told me this is a software bug. It appears every 180 miles of usage, and it was really only intended for treadmills, not ellipticals.
You can clean and lubricate the rails and wheels - and you should - but the error message won't go away. Instead, you can get rid of it by resetting the odometer. First, press and hold the Start, Enter, and Stop buttons for five seconds to enter engineering mode. Use the arrow keys to select FUNCTIONS, then select ODO RESET and press Enter. Turn the machine off and on again, and voila, no error message.
Thanks Tyler! Happy exercising!

Sole treadmill keeps shutting off and display code reads "System Initializing" After using for 15 minutes

sounds like overheating or memory issues. could simply be a bad connection somewhere. If the time it takes to shut off remains pretty constant then I'd suggest a capacitor on the electronic circuit board is on its way out.

It does not turn on says safe


This message appears when you remove the Safety key.

Kindly provide me with the make and model of the machine?

Are you sure that the key is intact? Is it properly placed?

Treadmill will not operate when plugged up.

check the outlet first by plunging in a light to make sure their is power and that the house breaker was not tripped. then plug in the power cord next locate the reset/off circuit breaker on the treadmill frame near the power cord. Switch the circuit breaker to the reset position. Then place safety key on console and the display should light up if not then you may have a lower board problem.
