Proactive fitness cardio trainer treadmill will not start

I have a proactive fitness cardio trainer, Switched it on from the plug socket and the lights came on but when I went to press the start button all the lights turned off. I thought I had blown the fuse so changed it but still the lights did not come on. However the main light at the front of the treadmill is on. Any ideas how to get it to work..? Thanks

SOURCE: treadmill is plugged, lights are on but does not work

The standard calibration procedure to calibrate an Icon treadmill is done by holding down the speed up and stop keys while inserting the safety key or putting the key in place (if magnetic). If your keypad is not responding, because your treadmill keypad has failed or the console computer has failed. In these cases, the keypad can be replaced in limited instances or the console has to be replaced.
Now if you are able to get in calibration mode then Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, This means that it passes the EPROM test. If it shows ff or 2f your upper console will need to be replace.
Next step if eprom passes: Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
DO NOT STAND ON THE WALKING BELT.Press the Speed Up key and hold it down until 85 is shown in the Distance window (some models may show the 85 number in another window). if you get the the number to 85 and the belt does not move , on the lower board you will see a like flicker that would be the speed control this tells you that the upper console and terminal cable is good ,but lower board defective.

SOURCE: will my ifit treadmill card work in an incline

Technically, the Incline Trainer and the treadmill are two different type of machines. The incline trainer raises much higher so the card that is designed for the treadmill will not work on the incline trainer unfortunately.

Check the treadmill "continuity" , the treadmill connections correctly grounded. If that is checked ok then either the outlet itself is bad .Try plugging the treadmill on another stronger outlet, such as a kitchen outlet..But if its still shorting out and blowing the fuse then its internal motor problem.The motor or its wiring is got weak,so when you press the start button the motor starts and treadmill turns off and blow fuse.--------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

In what way is an elliptical trainer different from a treadmill?

Treadmills have a moving belt while elliptical trainers have two foot pedals guiding movement - making it more controlled and safer. Elliptical trainers also have handles, in which the user has the option to move their arms in opposition to their legs to better control movement.

Landice L8 Cardio trainer giving messages on readout P4 and L5

I've definitely never seen "P4" on a Landice before so I'm not entirely sure on that one. The other issues seem like they might be associated with stuck keys on the console. It's a very common problem if you have it in a humid area and/or it gets sweat on it during the work out. Being that it's a Landice, you should have a part warranty on it. Have you contacted them?
