SOURCE: My nordictrack 1000 turns on, but the track does not move?

1) Check the sensor reed switch see the diagram by 1/8"

2) use the calibration software for easy diagnostic and fix it. see your owner manual and go under the hood for instruction step.

3) exchange the battery by new ones for console.
4) Measure the input 115vac for motor without load
5 Test the main motor board for output +5vdc for Display board.

See the block diagram for easy diagnostic that I did designed for quicly adjusting and fix it.

Sincerely Merry Christmas,.

Can't remove right pedal shield


The shield will not come off unless you remove the entire crank, not just the pedal. to do this, you need to buy a CRANK ARM PULLER TOOL available for around $15.oo at any bicycle shop. Make sure to get one for a square tapered bottom bracket. Just used one, the crank came right off and the shield simply lifted away. here is a link to a YouTube Video showing the tool and explaining the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N63ofGcRCYQ

Tension to tight on bike won't losen


Step 1:

please follow the instruction and fix it. God bless you.
Pedal Arms

1

Use a flat screwdriver to unseat the tabs that hold the front top cover in place. This will expose the flywheel and pedal arm connection points. Rotate the flywheel by hand and determine whether lubrication will accomplish the repairs. If the bearings are exposed, use a grease gun with an extension nozzle and lubricate both bearings with lithium grease. If the bearings are damaged or sealed, proceed to the next step.

2

Remove the front and side covers on the main frame. Hold the flywheel with one hand and use a box wrench to loosen the bolts that secure the pedal arms at each side of the flywheel. Pull the arms away from the flywheel and remove the bearings from each side.

3

Test the bearings as before. Lubricate exposed bearings with lithium grease and reinstall them. Sealed bearings must be replaced. Reattach the pedal arms to the flywheel. Replace the main frame covers and front top cover to complete the repairs.


Step 2:

LUBRICATION

1

Prepare to oil by filling a grease gun with lithium grease. Check your owner's manual for the exact type of grease for your unit.

2

Locate where it is you need to lubricate. Focus on the bearings, free-moving joints and attachments with moving parts such as handle bars, wheels, pedals arms and guide rails. Go to each location one by one when greasing.

3

Unfasten the bolts or screws that hold the joint or attachment that you wish to lubricate.

4

Grease each bolt and screw liberally. Tighten each bolt and screw back into its place when finished.

5

Wipe away any excess greas




Step 3:

Drive Belt

1

Remove the screws or bolts securing the ends of the pedals to the crank axles. Slide the ends of the pedals off the axles. Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right disc shields to the base unit. Pull or pry the disc shields off the base unit and set them aside.

2

Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right side shields to the base unit. Detach the side shields and set them aside. Examine the interior of the base unit and locate the drive belt.

3

Pull the drive belt free of the crank pulley, flywheel and any other pulleys. Discard the old drive belt and install a new belt in its place. Turn the crank axles by hand to confirm that the belt will turn smoothly when the device is in use

Pedal is off center & scraping side


Hello there. What has more than likely happened is that one of your crank arms have come loose. The front covers to access the crank arms are removeable but difficult to do. There are 11 screws and three clips that hold the covers on each side. You will also need an 8 inch phillips head screw driver to remove the covers.
First remove power to the machine.
Second, Using the 8 inch screw driver remove the screw in the hole that is visible on the side of the unit.
Then remove the screw in the hole located just above the arm assembly
Another screw is located inside the cup holder remove that as well
after removing the screw in the cup holder you can lift the cup holder up slightly and access the two screws for the lower cover. There is also another screw under the cupholder holding the side shield on remove that as well.
Next go to the bottom of the lower cover. There will be two screws holding the lower part of the cover on. There are clips on each side of the cover which also connect it to the side shields. If you pull gently on the sides of the cover it will pop off. Only three more screws to go.
If you have the ability to tilt the machine on its side it will help in this step. There are three screws also holding the bottom of the side shield on. remove those as well.
The only thing holding the cover on now are three clips in the front of the machine. These will be difficult to remove! You have to partially seperate the two shields from the top and working your way down pull the two shields away from each other. They will make a loud noise when they come loose so beware.
Once you have gotten the cover loose you can raise it up over the arm assembly.
You can now start working on the original problem.
Once inside you need to locate the crank arm assembly. (this is where the pedal leg connects ) You will see a bolt going through the crank arm where it connects to the crank shaft. both the right and left crank arms should be flush with the crank shaft. To realign the arms you must loosen the bolt holding the crank arm and also loosen the allen screw holding the locating key in place. The arm should then be movable to a point where it can be tapped back flush with the crank shaft. Retighten the bolt loosened in the previous step first. Then retighten the locating key allan screw Be sure to use alot of pressure when tightening the crank bolts to be sure you will not have to do this again.
Reverse the procedure for the covers to reinstall them.
Good Luck! Tim
