Question about Sportsart Exercise & Fitness
I have a sportsart 1092f and the fuse blew so i replaced it easy right? no! new fuse blew right away, if i disconnect the motor it powers up fine but with motor on its just going full speed even when safety key removed. the display shows no speed so cant turn it down on there either so im guessing its the motor control board but cant find parts anywhere for this make and model???? please help!!

Recheck your wiring and check your ground. If all that checks out then triple check your control board. Also the motor SHOULD have a reset button make sure that the button is not out and it is fully pushed in

Thank you so much for this information. I can verify that this procedure worked (at least for me). I ordered the part from Digi-Key Corp (it was up to a whooping $.28), replaced the old capacitor, plugged everything back in and bam! A working display. There was a beeping and error message but after hitting the Cancel button on the stove, everything was working.
Note that this fixed the dimmed display only. All the other controls were still working--only the display was off. If you have other issues, this might not be a complete solution.
You need basic soldering skills, a small solder iron, a solder ******, and some rosin-core solder. The capacitor is labeled on the circuit board.
When taking the unit off the control panel the largest ribbon cable was clear plastic with embedded contacts. I'd never seen one of these before. The cable's contacts slide in behind the pins on the connector and are held against it by an insert in the connector. When I removed the insert, the clear plastic cable came completely out from the connector. I had thought I'd broken it. But just slide it back in behind the pins, aligning the cable contacts with the pins and put in the connector insert to hold them in place.
The Digi-Key part number for the capacitor is P10292-ND. I ordered 5, just to have a few spares. The 5 caps plus first class postage came to a total of $3.51. Quite a difference from the $160 for the whole unit!
Thanks again to ultigerfan for making this information available.

I saw you post today on another forum and did not have time to put my thoughts down before work. I agree not a clutch issue I had to :), you would be so lucky. I own the machine and can’t offer any more troubleshooting then what you have done, good job of that. Unfortunately the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW SM doesn’t have a whole lot of support for troubleshooting beyond what you have done for this issue. I found more info from the MAH3000 manual on the technical operation of the motor controller (slightly different controller). Both machines use the same troubleshooting paths. Remove JP4 which is;
P1 Motor Control common
P2 Torque (to Motor Controller) see page 1-11 MAH3000
P3 Motor Control Tach (to control board input)
My WAG is replace the Motor Controller 1st, then Control board 2nd and a possible tach issue related to the motor. That’s enough WAGing,…. but with troubleshooting not a complete WAG :).
Take a look at pages 2-5 thru 2-11, I keyed in on page 2-11 in the MAH3000, it may give you some additional insight, I know we are dealing with different machine designs but I think the designs are close regarding motor controller, the motor and what the Control Board is doing and looking for with input from the Motor Controller. I wish the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW SM gave this kind of detail for troubleshooting. There is a nice little troubleshooting table on 2-11.
I keyed in on this note;
The motor control monitors the signals and communicates this information to the machine control (control board). The purpose of this signal is to tell the motor when to energize each winding in the motor and to tell the machine control the actual motor speed.
Then this note;
Note: If the machine control board does not receive an input signal from the motor control/tachometer circuit (JP4 connector), the motor speed will rapidly accelerate for 5 seconds then shut down. The machine control will sense a "locked rotor" condition and the motor will stop. If the motor control does not receive an input signal from the motor, the motor will "****" for 5 seconds then shut down.
I don’t believe you have that condition. I have worked with a forum member who had an issue with the motor controller related to an Lr error, locked rotor error and replacing the Motor Controller fixed the issue. Form here I vote for an issue with the Motor Controller. Not having known good parts makes this a difficult job.
The control board is under warranty for 5 yrs from DOP, the Control Board is 2 yrs. Ebay is a good source 25001079
I would push Maytag CSV for both. I got them to send me a Control Board after discussing my troubleshooting and that I had a neighbor (me) that was a repair tech who would install. I also had to send them copy of my warranty not sure why they beeded that my machine was on file with them.
In your console you will find a Troubleshooting guide if you haven’t pulled it out already. It has the schematic for the machine which I find handy. If you want a soft PDF copy of the schematic I can e-mail you. Just ping me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I use that for one-way contact, just respond back on this post if you ping me, I don’t check the account for month’s at a time.
With my limited knowledge I will try to help you. Good luck. Rich
