SOURCE: Treadmill has always been on a constant incline

Run the machine through calibration. If this does not work you will have either a bad controller or incline motor is bad.

SOURCE: Pro-Form Sport 1000 treadmill does not stop inclining

Do a Calibration on the treadmill. Take out the safety key. With 2 fingers, hold down the stop button and the speed up or spped plus button. keep holding them down as you insert the safety key, then let go of both.
Press the stop button 1 time, you should see all 0's in the windows, or EP 2P or something weird like that.
Press the Incline up button and then wait. If the incline go up until it stalls then down until it stalls the stops at the bottom, the you are recalibrated, take out the safery key and put it back in to see if all is well. If the incline takes off up again without touching a button, the you have wiring problems or control problems. Call service company to get it repaired.

SOURCE: ifit treadmill will not incline but everything

You may need to calibrate the incline. Do this with the following procedure.
Safety key out
press the stop and speed up buttons at the same time while inserting the safety key. (you are now in diagnostics)
press the stop button one time only.
now press the incline up button (incline motor should start moving up)
incline will go up to the top and then all the way to the bottom. when it gets done you can remove the key. Reinsert the key and you should be operating normally.
Good luck Tim

SOURCE: incline does not work

ProForm Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits. It worked for mine just 10 minutes ago; the procedure is in the manual if you have it. Good luck!

Stuck in up position. Bought a new incline more and if it goes above 5, it will keep climbing and won't come down.

Horizon Elite 5.3 treadmill blows JP2 fuse. Incline does not work, all other functions work even with fuse blown. Does not blow if I disconnect incline motor.


Great work! Another great point for treadmill servicers! Please be aware....inside a treadmill lift motor, there is a small potentiometer or pot, that watches the "throw" or position of the lift screw, which relates to the treadmill incline. These lift motors have a sheath or "nut" on the screw that MUST be set properly at the ZERO degree mark of the deck, for proper operation from zero elevation to 12% or whatever it's uppermost incline is. This must be assembled correctly, or like in this case, that motor begins to "pinch" at one end of it's "throw" and the current will rise in the winding and blow a fuse, saving the lift from burning up. Nice job troubleshooting Thad!

Sportsart treadmill error 7


Treadmill Parts for SportsArt Belts Motor Brushes SPORTSMITH net
ERR7 Definition: The display board main IC didn't receive the incline variable resistor (VR) value, or the value exceeds the set range. Explanation: The incline VR voltage changes as the incline motor operates, and the display board CPU uses the VR voltage to calculate the incline position. Without this value, the CPU cannot instruct the incline motor what to do, so ERR? appears. Or when the incline set is out of alignment, the VR value exceeds the set range.

The following is a list of possible solutions:

1. Incline Set a) Inspect whether the Incline ERR LED on the drive board lights. This LED indicates that the incline set has exceeded the range. b) Inspect whether the incline set mechanically exceeds range. On DC incline motors, at the 0% position, the line on the thin incline pipe will not align with the end of the thick pipe. On AC motors, at the 0% position, the red line will not appear even with the bottom of the incline window in the incline set. See Incline Troubleshooting Manual for details. c) Inspect whether the incline VR voltage exceeds the range: Put multimeter probes on the incline VR set blue and green wire connectors, while keeping the wires connected. Refer to Incline Troubleshooting Manual for the voltage range for your treadmill. If the incline range is exceeded, either mechanically or electronically, calibrate the incline set. Refer to the Incline Calibration in the Incline Troubleshooting Manual for directions. If the incline set cannot be calibrated electronically, replace the incline VA. If the incline set is stuck and cannot be unstuck, replace the whole incline set. 2. Drive Board Inspect incline voltage on the blue and green wires at the drive board. If voltage is within range, and ERRl appears, inspect drive board component connections and components for wear. 3. Ribbon Cable Inspect ribbon cable for breaks. Inspect connections at the display and drive boards. 4. Display Board Inspect IC connections. Push down to secure connections. Re-insert les.

Hi, our proform 790 tr treadmill is aorund six years old and the walking belt and height motor seem to be going. Is it worth replacing these and is it fairly straightforward?


Changing a walking belt takes about an hour for someone who has done it before. Check the walking deck for scratches, damage as well. Often times if the belt is worn out, the deck needs to be replaced as well. Belts vary in price depending on the make and model of treadmill. Parts can be ordered by calling the number found on the model number sticker on the treadmill. There are 10 different machines with the 790t model name. To get the correct parts find the actual model number (will start with "H"). The parts come with replacement instructions.
Belt $105 Deck $190
As for the incline motor, it is very rare to change that part. It may just require calibration. Start the machine . Press incline up and hold, remove the safety key. Now reinsert the safety key. The machine should rise to full incline then back down to minimum. Once the cycle is complete, the treadmill should work normally. If the incline sensor is defective, the motor will have to be replaced. Incline motor $150.

My proform 360p treadmill is stuck on full incline - can it be fixed and if so how???


try thisSometimes incline motors will get frozen in position and need broke free. Try this:
take the motor cover off and take the screw out of the bottom of the incline motor that is attached to the screw assembly. Once you remove the screw you should be able to break the incline motor free. run the incline up and down with the screw still off( laying the treadmill on its side may make this easier). Once it goes up and down (hold the screw so it goes in and out) reattach it then run the calibration described below. If it was just stuck it should work fine.

1. remove safety key
2. press and hold the speed+ and stop keys at the same time
3. Put the safety key in/on and release the keys
4. press stop once
5. hit the incline + arrow and let the incline go the whole way up and down
6. remove safety key and try

If these instructions do not work to fix the incline motor
check your main harness running down the right leg for breaks in the wires or a loose connection if nothings found you can switch the red and black wires on the incline motor terminal block and see if it goes down. If it does you know you are only getting voltage to one side of the motor. There is a schematic under the motor hood that tells you what the voltage should be when you press the up or down keys. Use a multi-meter to see if you are getting the correct voltage coming from the console to the motor control board and then from the board to the motor. If no voltage from console-replace console if you have voltage from console but not from board - replace board and finally if you have voltage from console and from board replace motor. You will need to test the voltage both when pressing the up key and the down key.

We are putting the Epic 550 together and got to the part about the storage lock. When we try to lift the treadmill into a verticle position, it won't go up far enough. It only goes up about half way. Why?


check and see if you incline is down to zero if not this problem occurs or the or plug it in and if the incline reset itself then it should be o k if not you may have to do a calibration on it
