SOURCE: Treadmill (Vision Fitness T8500) turns on, motor doesn't run...

open motor shroud and inspect all connection on the motor control board see if all LED 's are lit except that light up when incline motor is moving up or down. then check the two connector coming from the drive motor to the board sometime over time the two connector will have a cold soldier I would move them to see any excessive movements of the pins then hit start and see if there is any belt movement. Last but not least unplug unit and check the motor brushes if they are less than 3/8 in in length replace them. Call them @ 1-800-335-4348 they under their parent corp. Johnson fitness.

SOURCE: FET Error

FET error is caused by a short in the driver transistor on the motor controller. Unfortunately, the fix for this is to replace the motor controller.

Sounds like it needs to be fixed. It will need a new left motor and cord most likely, less likely a lower board.

No led display is their a way to replace the battery or does it runs on batteries


There is a 9 volt battery in the back of the console. This small battery could be your problem. I am attaching a link to our Website for parts, as well as a link to the diagram for your machine.

Error 1 message on older life fitness t3 treadmill


Error 1 - Start up error. This is caused because the belt was commanded to move and the opto (speed sensor on the motor) has not seen any movement or the belts movement was interrupted prior to it reaching its commanded speed. To fix Verify opto operation in Diagnostics, Motor Test
Mode, Section 2. Verify DC voltage at connector P6 pins 1 and 2. Verify that LED 4 on the Motor Controller flashes as the motor moves. Let me know if you need any more help. Fitness Fix-It

Life fitness treadmill display: transistor error-won't run


This error shows up if motor controller detects a failed part. This isn’t a reset-able error. Treadmill will not allow workouts until serviced.
Solution
Main motor wires/leads could be disconnected at the start of a workout. If the motor is properly connected and in working condition then the drive transistor could have failed. Check Motor Controller.

i believe this is error occurs when the console doesn't get a reading from the gear box. while debugging a problem with the reed switch (the thing that detects motion, that you have started pedaling) I had the gearbox unplugged and it indicated error 1. once plugged back in, it was fine. possibly you have pinched/cut wires? I had this problem where the stem meets the body.

The gear box wires are red/yellow/orange for the servo positioning, and brown/black for power to move the motor.
