SOURCE: the treadmill keeps stopping Freespirit Model 12230520.0

Hey there,

If your treadmill has an optical speed sensor and hasn't been cleaned for a while, dust, dirt or lint may be obstructing the infared eye of the speed sensor. Try cleaning the treadmill.

Or maybe you need to replace the upper display, although, you may have a loose wiring harness that would cause the same problems. Open the motor case and verify the wiring harness is plugged into the lower board snugly. Also, remove the upper console and verify the harness is plugged into the back of the console snugly as well.

Definitely, inspect the components and try and isolate the source of the problem yourself first, before contacting a dealer for parts, as they can cost a fortune..

Good Luck!

SOURCE: My Freespirit also stops after a few minutes

Normally all these problems are in relation with motor itself, I mean, internal bearings, short circuit. So if your treadmill stops is bacause the circuit board detetecs an over current fron motor.

I hope help you

Life Fitness 4000 repeatedly blows outlet circuit breaker


If there was a fuse in the treadmill it certainly wouldn't cause your main circuit breaker to blow. It sounds like the motor burnt out and shorted- which is causing your house circuit breaker to blow. There is a chance that the ball caused some other damage that is creating the short but my bet is on a burnt out motor. You would need to disassemble the unit and test for short circuits to verify.

PROBLEM: The power does not turn on

After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is fully inserted into the console. c. Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord.

Tread mill wont turn on. it was on then while in use the screen flashed on and off then treadmill shut down and has not turned back on. tried reset button then unpluging for a while but still does not turn...


Dear Sir:
Thank you by your problem, I will help you inmediately.

Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor
is plugged into a properly grounded outlet . Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor
that is UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge suppressor
must have a UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or less and a minimum surge dissipation
of 450 joules. The surge suppressor must be electrically rated for 120 volts AC and 15 amps.
Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped outlets.

2)After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is fully inserted into the console.

3)Check the circuit breaker located on the treadmill
near the power cord. If the switch protrudes as
shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset the
circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then press
the switch back in.

4)Check the on/off switch located on the treadmill
near the power cord. The switch must be in the on
position.

I hope you resolve this. Otherwise, try to reach me. Inmediately.

sincerely.

Hi I own the Horizon T605 Treadmill - The treadmill was working fine until we had a power surge and the treadmill stopped working after. My husband believes that it is a fuse. Do you think it could be...


The unit has a circuit breaker near the on/off switch on the front of the machine. The power surge may have tripped this circuit breaker and it needs to be reset.

If this doesn't solve the problem, Horizon's customer service number is 1.888.993.3199.

Hope this helps.

The power is on but it won't run


Power issues with treadmills fit into two categories: the power does not turn on or the power shuts off when using the treadmill. If the power will not turn on, make sure that the treadmill is plugged into a working power outlet. In addition, you should use a single-outlet surge protector for the treadmill. Single-outlet surge protectors protect the machine from any voltage changes that may occur in your home.
If the machine is plugged into a working outlet, make sure the safety key is in the keyhole on the console. If the safety key is not plugged into the machine or if it is pulled out during operation, the treadmill will not operate.
Finally, make sure the circuit breaker located on the frame near the power cord is set to "Reset." The circuit breaker is set to "Reset" if the top of the button is pushed in. When the breaker is tripped, push it back to the "Reset" position and wait five minutes before powering on the treadmill.
If the treadmill shuts off during operation, check the power cord and circuit breaker as described above. You can also try removing and reinserting the safety key.

Thanks for the rating Good luck
