No. this happen because had been lack of maintenance LUBE. Lube the deck belt, you must do it every week of use normally. Use 100% silicones or wax instr. manual.
2) LUBE the rollerer bearings too.
3) Test the input voltage motor, if there are Voltage the motor need repari.
4) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty.

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

This probably did not happened suddenly right? the problem is not the motor however you can easily check the blue capacitor for peace of mind. with the power disconnected, disconnect one side off the capacitor from the top. with a ohm meter put the 2 probes on the cap,you will ear a temporary beep sound from your meter, then reverse your probes on the capacitor and again a temporary sound that mean your capacitor is good and your motor will run OK.

Your problem is more then likely your run belt and bed assembly. When new, these are coated with a wax of some kind for slipping, has you use the machine wax wears off, and so is the belt. You can see a black rubber dust at the rear of the machine. And so resistance increase when pressure is applied on the running belt.

Just behind the on/off switch where the power cord goes in, there is a auto reset 15 amp breaker that trips when too must resistance against the motor increase the amperage over 15amps. At 7 min/m on your speed setting and if the belt is adjusted correctly with nobody on, the motor pull about 6amps, with someone like me 180lbs, the motor pulls an avg of 10amps with a new belt.

If you have a clamp amp meter you can test it yourself.

2 parts you will need to fix this; 50985-101 (bed assembly) and 36355-101 (run belt 17 X 110) This is real easy to install.

make sure these parts are for your machine model # as they did increased the width of their belt over the years

Since 1998 I had to replace these parts 2 times with an average of 3 people using the treadmill every day. This is a good machine and if everything else is good it's worth it. I paid $300 for these parts, i'm sure if you shoppe a little you can do better.

Have a good one

SOURCE: treadmill will not start

Better know someone who can fix it, like who you got the Treadmill from. Maybe they can help you, it's better if you had the warranty. Or you can trade yours in for another one. That always helps.

Replaced motor and motherboard board through warranty but belt still won't work. Not even the power noise will turn on.


The motor, or a connector to the motor, or the controller is faulty. If you can measure DC voltage at the motor (up to 90VDC), but the motor won't turn, and if you can manually move the treadmill belt with your hand or rotate the motor pulley (POWER OFF) with your hand, then the motor's dead. Even IF it was replaced under warranty.

If you can't measure any DC voltage to the motor under any conditions, then the problem is in the controller or a connector. Try measuring directly at the controller board.

Measure across the Mtr + and Mtr - terminals with your voltmeter (DCVolts). You should
measure at least 90 vdc on a 110V treadmill and 180 vdc on a 220V treadmill.
If you are not getting dc volts out of the lower board, replace it.
If you are measuring the proper dc voltage out, replace the drive motor.

Hi, Can you use the treadmill speed controller ? Or you could by a AC/DC invertor drive , http://www.inverterdrive.com/group/DC-Thyristor-Drives/SSD-507-Eurotherm-Shackleton-Rapier-Drives-503-504/default.aspx
Thats a link for a possible option for you , you often see them in exchange and mart or Craigs List .
hope this helps, please rate accordingly .

Unplug unit and remove the motor shroud you will have to do DC Amp Measurement.

Measure on the hot DC lead (usually red) going from the controller to the drive motor. If you have a simple multi-meter with a DC amp test setting the best way to test is to put the meter inline on the red motor lead with alligator clips. If you have a more expensive clamp meter, clamp the meter around the red motor wire. Run the machine at 2.5 MPH without a person on the belt. If the motor and drive system are healthy, you should have a reading in the 2-3 amp range. Then walk on the treadmill at the same speed. With a person of average size (around 200 lbs.) you should have a reading in the 6-8 amp range if the belt is good. The readings will fluctuate more with a load but you are looking for an average reading but you shouldn't see spikes above 10 amps. If the amp readings are high without a load, you could have a problem with high resistance in the motor, a bad bearing, or over-tightened belts. Regular readings without a load but high readings with a load indicate a worn belt and/or deck.

You may have a belt and deck problem. Test by the following procedure:
without the power on stand on the walking belt, push the belt in the, direction it normally turns. If the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill) this means that you have high belt/deck friction I first apply silicone lubricant and see if that clear up the problem. Most problems originate from the belt and deck 75 to 85% of the time.

On occasion, you may have already damaged the DC board if you have high belt/deck friction. If the belt walks freely, you have a different problem.

Treadmill powers up begins to turn belt then shuts down


Did the shop only do a continuity check or a real load test with amp check also? Motors can look good and run with no load but fail under load.
