SOURCE: Proform 450 X treadmill powers on, but trips current when started

There could be a combination of problems. I would first start with disconecting the motor leads and see if it trips the breaker. Then elevation motor would be next if no change from disconecting motor. More than likely it's a motor issue.

SOURCE: Treadmill will not maintain the correct speed.

your belt may not be tight enough and it is slipping which can cause it to move faster than the motor

SOURCE: My Proform 650v treadmill stop when running after couple of miles

Most likely a bad drive belt. Take the cover off the motor area. If you see black dust near the left side of the motor, replace the drive belt.

try this steps and fix it. God bless you

Step 1

Plug the power cord into a UL 1449 single-outlet surge suppressor and then plug the surge suppressor into an electrical outlet that is not GFCI-equipped if the power does not turn on. If the treadmill is plugged in and the power still does not work, make sure the key is in the console and that the Reset/Off circuit breaker has not been tripped. Press the switch to "Reset" if it has been tripped.

Step 2

Check the Reset/Off circuit breaker if the power switches off while in use. Wait five minutes and switch the button to reset. Check that the power cord is still plugged in securely; pull the plug out and plug it back in after five minutes. Pull out the console key and reinsert to see if the machine will turn back on.

Step 3

Place the chest pulse sensor tightly right underneath your pectoral muscles or breasts for it to operate properly. Position it lower or higher on your chest if it does not work properly. Wet the electrodes with a saline solution. Walk near the walking belt's center within an arm's reach of the console.

Step 4

Remove the console key and unplug the treadmill to loosen the walking belt if it slows when in use. Turn the rear roller bolts counterclockwise with the hex key 1/4 of a turn until you can lift the walking belt's edges 3 to 4 inches from the platform.

Step 5

Remove the key and unplug the treadmill to adjust the walking belt if it is off-center or slips when in use. Loosen the rear roller bolts with the hex key and reposition the walking belt. Tighten the roller bolts. Walk on the treadmill to determine if the walking belt is centered. If not, loosen the roller bolts again and make adjustments until the walking belt is centered.

Step 6

Recalibrate the incline system if the treadmill's incline does not adjust correctly. Press the "Incline" button and remove the console key. Wait a few seconds and replace the console key. The incline will automatically recalibrate by moving to the maximum incline level and then the minimum level.

Step 7

Press the "Stop" button for a few seconds to turn off the demo mode if the console display stays lit after you remove the console key.

Circut board trips electricty board


Treadmills are machines with a considerable pull of electricity. Make sure you are operating on a dedicated circuit.

Most users have the machine plugged into a spare bedroom outlet ehich is either not dedicate (power source spread out to more then one outlet) or is a GFI outlet (Ground Fault Indicator).

These outlets are used so homeowners do not overload an outlet in an area where a resident will sleep and be in danger of a fore or death.

Usually in the first few pages of your owners manual it will give you the requirements for your machine.

You can run an extension cord to another room with a dedicated outlet, but the extension cord does not transmit all the power coming out of the outlet and will eventually lead to other issues, usually electrical issues within the machine.

You can use a multimeter to see what else could be the issue with your outlet, but will want to consider having an electrician put in a dedicated outlet.

My profrom 480e threadmill is tripping as soon as I start it.The kids palyed with red stop button. I put the stop button back, but still it trips.How do i fix it.


Hi


Looseness or discolorations of the prongs on the plug or the terminals in the wall or extension indicate a weak connection. A weak connection lowers the voltage to the treadmill and causes the motor to work harder. With low voltage the motor draws more amperage and causes the circuit breaker in the treadmill to trip.

Another cause for circuit breakers to trip is the belt needs lubrication. Check for belt lubrication and ease of movement. To test the walking belt lubrication, do not turn the treadmill motor on. Set the elevation to the highest level. Stand near the front of the walking belt. Push yourself firmly toward the rear of the treadmill. If the belt is properly lubricated the belt will take you to the rear edge of the treadmill and dump you off on the floor. If you move and stop, the belt needs lubricating.

hi, firstly change the fuse in the plug to a higher voltage, then if you are using an extention wire make sure all the wire is unrolled. i had the same problem with my m5. i was using an extention wire on a roll that was shorting out the trip on the treadmill and cutting the electric off. so just by putting a higher amp in the plug and i am now using a 2m extention alot safer and much better,

Nordic Track treadmill trips GFI.


Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the GFI to trip. simple test start the treadmill do not walk on a see if the GFI is tripped in it does trip then lubricate, then if after lubricate it still the you have a worn belt and possibly damaged deck depending replacement price and on what you paid for the treadmill it may or may not be worth fixing.
