SOURCE: Pro-form 320x treadmill slows down then motor stops.

Sounds like it is overheating, you have to disassemble the unit and find why it might be overheating

Unplug your treadmill and remove motor shroud ,locate Motor control board their a series of LEDs . Now without getting on treadmill hit start look down and you should a light starting to flicker this is your PWM signal, t the upper console sends a signal to the lower board and instructs the motor to start. This tells me that the upper board and cable are functioning properly and our problem is either the board or motor.
DC motors can be easily tested in a number of ways. Many times a motor is replaced only to find another problem exists so be sure to test the motor if you think it is a problem. Methods to test a motor: 1) Cordless drill battery- get a fully-charged, 18 volt (preferred) cordless drill battery and on most treadmills connect the red and black motor leads to the battery (some have different colors but if you have two wires and get it hooked up backwards, the motor will just run backwards and won’t be harmed). If good, the motor should operate at about 1 MPH. 2) Car battery- these are 12VDC high amp batteries so the motor will turn slowly but you can walk on the belt. Always be careful with battery acid on these things so we don’t recommend bringing them in the house…take the treadmill to the battery.
If the motor test good then all fingers point to the Motor Control Board replace the board. When was the last time lubricated the running deck?
Answer: Never ! Then I suggest you purchase lubricant and apply it on the deck about 75% to 85% of the problems are belt and deck related.

SOURCE: Horizon Treadmill T5.1. A sudden vibration and

To find a specific bearing that has gone bad in a treadmill you can use a long handled screwdriver and touch it to a non-moving portion of the rollers and then put your ear up to the handle and the screwdriver will amplify the noise of the part so you can find out which part is making the noise. If it is a bearing, it will be obvious which part is the problem because the grinding noise of the bad bearing with be amplified by the screwdriver.

SOURCE: after 10 seconds running my horizon fitness

Hello,

The E1 error code is the reed switch signal is not making it to the motor controler. Or that the controler is bad.

Unplug the treadmill and hook it back up, remove the motor hood and check the motor controler for a red light, it should remian lit without flashing, showing the unit has power. When you press the speed buttons, the light should start flashing, then the drive motor should start driving the walk belt. Watch the red light to see if it stops flashing when the belt stops. It should. Does the treadmill read speed and distance before it quits? If so, it most likley is a heavy draw on the drive motor causing too much restistance, which shuts the controler down.

Hope this helps.
Matt

Lubed belt but display still says lube belt and I cant do anything how do i clear the display I have the horizon gs950t


Hi,
After lubrication you have to reset your treadmill settings. Then only the message will go off. To reset the tread mill do the following.

1. Hold the "Stop" button for three seconds to reset the treadmill and clear the current workout selection or screen. The console will reset but will save any accumulated data

2. Press and hold the "eTRAK" button for 10 seconds to reset the console date. This permanently deletes any previously accumulated data
3. Press and hold the "Stop" button while pressing the Speed "+" button. Hold for five seconds to reset the console after applying lubricant to the machine. Lubricant application is usually only necessary when you receive the "LUBE" error

ok

I have a Horizon fitness CST3 and the belt stops running but everything else stays on. Do you know what is cuasing my problem?


How old is your treadmill? Has the deck been lubricated? Do you smell anything odd when the belt stops? Unplug treadmill, remove motor cover and check cables are all connected.
