SOURCE: my treadmill is stuck at the highest incline and

Although it is fairly rare the incline motor can jam up into the highest position and get stuck there. To fix this take off the plastic hood that covers the incline motor and depending on the motor you should be able to wind it with your hand out of the highest position. When it is out of the highest position run the calibration as described in the owner's manual and it should go all the way up and all the way down. If it is not this type of motor that can be wound by hand then the first and last thing to do is to try calibration of the incline as described in your manual. If this does not work then a new incline motor is needed.

Unplug your unit take the motor shroud off and you will see a circuit board (Motor Control Board) their should be L E D s on the board. Now plug your unit in and you will see these light up if you have a second pair of hands that can help you have them press you incline controls.

You should see one of these L E D s light up followed with a click of a relay this activate the incline motor some of these boards will have a 3 amp fuse to protect the board from damage , if you see a open fuse replace it with the same exact fuse. If it blows again either you have a shorted armature winding or the worm screw is frozen. I would call Smooth Fitness, depending wiether this was made by either Sports Art Fitness or Keys Finess they will direct you to theproper parties.

SOURCE: treadmill stuck on highest incline....and motor

If the incline is stuck, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. Unplug the treadmill remove the motor shroud then remove the incline motor from the treadmill, reconnect the wiring, plug in the treadmill and then try to run the incline motor outside the treadmill. Many times, this will unjam it if that is the problem and then reinstalling it in the treadmill will get it to work. If you have the same problem or it doesn’t run outside the machine and you can hear it try to work, you need to replace the incline motor.
If the incline motor does not move, we need to figure out if the motor is getting voltage. Use a simple multi-meter and set it to AC volts. When you put it into calibration, it tries to calibrate the directions one at a time. Measure across the white and black wires first, then measure across the white and red wires second. If the motor is getting voltage you will read 120VAC (or thereabouts) one one of the measurements. If you have voltage but the motor won't move, you need to replace the motor. . If the incline motor does not move and you have done the voltage test and you do not have any voltage present, there is a problem in the electronics board that supplies the power, you need to replace the board.

The problem is most likely a malfunctioning incline motor. It is still under warranty, therefore you can contact iconservice.com and they will send a technician to your home to install the new motor. Contact them through their website at iconservice.com and they will be able to help you. Thank you for using fixya and please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

Treadmill will incline but not stay up. incline # stays after bed lowers


incline Motor is not working it can be a few different things.
1) may not be any signal from the console which could be a damaged cable(tight the flexible cable from keypanel vs display board)
2) Tight the connector from display board vs lower board ( main motor controller board the console itself has failed.
3) The motor control board may have failed from a worn treadmill belt and deck measure 120VAC input for the board
5) the motor may have burnt out Test try to measure 120VAC.
6) potentiometer geared to the motor adjust it so the console knows what height the incline is at.
7) the gearing can slip, giving the console false information which can cause chassis damage.
Now see the block diagaram that I did , for person like you, for to know how the main motor board has aprox 90% of functions of any treadmills. sincerely. Good luck, G-d bless you.

hi i think that the treadmill is the best choice. To me its more versatile,you can walk at you own speed you want to make harder up the incline. Or add hand or ankle weights for more challenge. bikes kill your but as far as being comfy. Ellipticals you need desent balance and not as sturdy as a treadmill. good luck

Epic Comfort step 425mx treadmill that we have is stuck on incline. How do I get it to go back down?


This happened to my treadmill. You need to get to the motor and see if the belt is fraying. If so, the fibers may have gotten entangled in the motor causing it to stay at the highest incline level. Once you clear this the treadmill will go up and down again. Hope this helps!

My nordic track treadmill won't decline


My wife had the same problem with her treadmill. I turned the beast on it's side, and unscrewed the plastic casing that houses the motor, computer, and all the electronics to the treadmill. I unplugged the incline/decline motor. Then on the bottom of the treadmill the long threaded rod that causes the incline needed to be moved. So I unbolted it from the catch, and manually screwed the rod back in with a wrench. Now the treadmill works fantastically, of course the incline/decline mechanism has been disabled, but I would rather have a treadmill with the incline disabled than have one always on 100% incline. Hope you found this helpful :)

Under the hood there should be a tech sheet with calibration instructions. I have not worked on these for several years or I would rattle off the procedure. If the sheet is still there make sure you put it back in the plastic sleeve for next time..... Eric
