Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller. Please follow the following steps to solve the problem:
1)Unplug the treadmill from the wall.
2)Remove the motor hood.
3)Unplug the speed wires from the controller. On many controllers, you will have 2 to 3 wires that control speed and many are labeled H, W, and L. If you cannot find the speed wires, do not guess, contact us with your make and model number and we will try to help you with the wiring.
4)Return the treadmill to a usable position once the speed wires are disconnected and plug the treadmill back in.
5)If the treadmill begins to run at full speed, the motor control has failed and requires replacement.
6)If the treadmill does not run at full speed you could have a speed input problem, wiring problem, or another short circuit.
1)Unplug your treadmill from the wall.
2)Remove the motor hood.
3)Check and see if your controller has three speed wires labeled H, W, and L or a unified wiring harness labeled H, W, and L from the console. If not, you have a digital controller and full speed upon power up is always a failed controller. No need for further testing...you need to replace the controller.

SOURCE: I have a proform fuel
You have to check the Driver circuit board for the motor. There is motor control IGBT Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) in this board .If the IGBT is short then the treadmill will try to run without setting any value or witout safety key . You have to check the OHMS between the seocnd and third of lead of the IGBT. If it shows less than 100 Ohms then the IGBT is short and you have to replace the same. Also you have to check the connection to the control pannel. Is there is any loose conatct. Remove the connection in the motor control board which go to the control pannel and reconnect it. Also check the speed sensor. In most of the treadmill you can find the speed sensor near the motor pully. Remove the speed sensor and clean it and the refix it. Remember one thing remove the power of the treadmill and leave it for 30 minutes then only oppen the treadmill. Because there is high voltage storage capacitors in the motor control board which will hold charge for some time even after the power is disconnected. i have added the picture of IGBT for your refference. There will be a part like this in your treadmill's motor driver board. You can see the part number on it.
