Question about Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill

1 Answer

My Sole F63 treadmill belt either fails to start or starts only with some coaxing

My problem is two-fold; I have run through the steps to calibrate the treadmill and get a 'low speed' error message. The speed sensor is as close to the magnet as it can be without actually touching it. After a few seconds of me pushing the belt with my feet, I can hear a 'click' and the belt begins moving itself, and works appropriately, but then when I hit stop the belt doesn't stop (only pulling the safety cord makes it stop).

You may have a few different issues. it sounds like you may have motor or motor brush issues. If the motor brushes are burnt then they don't make proper contact with the motor so they won't be able to power it unless you help it along with your foot. If you are the original owner of the machine and have a proof of purchase that motor should be covered under warranty. The stop issue is a weird one. It's probably just that the stop button isn't working and that's a pretty inexpensive fix.

I would definitely not use the machine until you've had a technician look at it. I am going to guess that the treadmill is over 6 years old. If it is then on top of everything else you'll need a new walking belt. To put one cent into that machine and not replace the belt is a complete waste of money. The problems will all come back and they'll be much worse.

SOURCE: F63 sole treadmill, low speed error when inclined

If the calibration does not pass you may need to check the speed sensoralignment. You must understand the instruction for calibration is under the hood for motor.
1) Remove the motor cover hood by loosening the 4 screws that hold it inplace (you do not need toremove them completely).2) The speed sensor is located on the left side of the frame, right nextto the front roller pulley (thepulley will have a belt around it that also goes to the motor). Thespeed sensor is small and blackwith a wire connected to it.3) Make sure the sensor is as close as possible to the pulley withouttouching it. You will see a magneton the face of the pulley; make sure the sensor is aligned with themagnet. There is a screw thatholds the sensor in place that needs to be loosened to adjust thesensor. Re-tighten the screw whenfinished.

2) if the problem persist you must Test the main motor for open, ground 3) the main control board faulty. See the block diagram that I did as person like you that understand that 90% of functions the main motor controller board has effect.

Treadmill Elevaton Error


There are a few things you may need to check. You already tried calibration. Next thing I would do is check the sensor wire from the incline to the controller. Make sure its properly plugged into the controller. The controller can also be an issue. If someone was tampering with the unit, the sensor wire could be plugged into the wrong connector as there is another connector that will fit.
