Question about Exercise & Fitness
We have an Ironman Legacy Treadmill (purchased in Jan 2007 from Costco.ca)...has been running fine and recently recieved an E44 error code upon turning it on. The treadmill will not calibrate either. Called Ironman, and they have apparently gone bankrupt, and their business is apparently being taken over by the treadmilldoctor.com. I contacted them and was told to call back in one week, as they had not yet received the manuals so could not help me.
Anyone with this problem? Any suggestions?
We would love to have our treadmill back up and running and the 2 of us use it 4-6 times per week.
there is the manual, but I need more info on your motor problem and what kind of belt adjustment you need to make.

Hello there, The calibration mode for a nordictrack is as follows.
With the safety key out, hold the stop and speed up arrow at the same time while inserting the key. Release the buttons. You will then be in diagnostics.
You then press the stop button one time.
If you are trying to calibrate the incline you just need to hit the incline up button and the machine will do an incline calibration. The unit should go all the way to the top and return to the bottom when completed.
If you need to calibrate the speed you will need to press and hold the speed up button on the console until the display reads 85. The machine should then be running at its maximum speed (either 10 or 12 mph depending on the unit)
The display will show a speed on the console and should be within .3 of the maximum speed.
If it is not then it will need to be adjusted using a potentiometer on the control pwb.
To access the control pwb open the hood cover. Should be 3 screws in the rear of the cover and 2 screws on the bottom of the unit.
Once inside the cover locate the control pwb. On the control pwb there will be a yellow/orange potentiometer. This is the adjusting part.
Use a non-metallic phillips head screw driver to adjust the potentiometer either clockwise for faster or counterclockwise for slower.
Hope this helps!
Good Luck! Tim

Testimonial: "Although I haven't attempted this solution, but it makes perfect sense and will attempt it as soon as I get back to the treadmill - Thank you"
Thanks, that advice pointed me in the right direction - if anyone else has same problem , I checked the sensor which was mounted beside motor fan and everthing looked ok - the distal end of the lead from the sensor to circuit board, was not easily visible as tucked under the motor - It clips into the circuit board here and that had come loose - once clipped back in , problem sorted.

You need to replace the motor control board located in on the base. If your both motors work along with your display added that you've done the reclibration then you must replace this board. I did and the unit works so far. 200 dollars is what you wil be spending.

When running or walking on my Ironman Triad Treadmill it jerks like it is going to stop every once in a while not all the time. Do you have any idea what makes it do this. I have had this Treadmill for 5 years and never had a problem before.
