If I can undertand very well, the problem is intermitent.

a) Check the power cord,( some wire is broken internal)
b) Look for cool solder ( re-solder)+loose connections cause intermitent operation!
c)Inspection the breaker, for loose connection, test the breaker.
d) check the transformer as indicated above.
e)and finally check the power supply after the transformer: a) resistor b) capacitors c) diodes, all this component can be loose, bad solder or cool, or broken, or short, open, or shorcircuit.

If you need further assistance, please reach me, sincerely. God bless you.

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.

Sole F85 treadmill fan and hand controls not working


There may be two problems, however, I would suggest you replace the main display pcb. That will fix the fan problem. If the handle bar switches still do not function replaces the switch and wiring.

My Sole f83 will not start. initially Fans run, can raise/lower. will act noemal until motor should run/doesn't. then raise/lower function stops. If I try to use speed buttons LS light shows. moto


LUBE or wax the deck belt, this happen because you do not have schedule maintenance according with the owner manual. The machine shut down for autoprotection in electronic system Do it NOW.
2) LUBe the rollers bearint too with WD-40 only for rollers
3) Test the drive belt motor, for worn or cracking belt, replace or adjust it
4) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair, see my personal TIPS for troubelshooting help.
5) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
God bless you

F85's "low speed" error


Dear Sir:
1) Lube the deck belt very well, as your instruction manual indicate for maintenance.
2) Try to Run software calibration after you fix it. For easy diagnose and troubleshooting.
3) The elevation motor can be faulty for lack of maintenance too, again Run the software calibration.

sincerely. God bless you

Stops 5-10 min into exercise; trips breaker,


Dear Sir:

Thank you by your request. I hope everything is o.k

Now I will try to help you.

You have electrical-mechanical Problem:

If you can walk on your treadmill but it shuts down during a workout, it is normally caused by a friction problem with the belt and deck.
Here are the most common symptoms and solutions:
Symptom: The treadmill operates for a given period of time and the circuit breaker on the treadmill trips causing you to have to reset the breaker, or let it cool off then reset the breaker. The
amount of time required to shut down will progressively get shorter.
Solution: The walking belt is worn. The incline test is the best test for it if you don't have a way to take a
DC amp draw. Put the treadmill at full incline and walk normally. If it takes it longer to shut off or does not
shut off at all, you need to replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect the deck for wear too. If you want to
go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking belt. The best fix is to replace the
walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.

Symptom: The treadmill will show power but after a given period of time, the treadmill will simply shut
down. Once you let it cool off, you can restart it back up but it shuts down faster and the time required
before it shuts down gets progressively shorter.
Solution: Your treadmill is most likely equipped with a heat sensor which shuts down the motor and/or
electronics to prevent them from burning up. If this is the case, replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect
the deck for wear too. If you want to go for a cheap fix (that we don't recommend) try lubricating the walking
belt. The best fix is to replace the walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.

Symptom: The treadmill shuts down in an intermittent pattern...there is no rhyme or reason to when it will
shut down. I get an error code or nothing shows up on the panel. I have to either unplug the treadmill or
reset it to restart the treadmill.
Solution: If you get an error code, contact us with the code and make and model and we will try to help
you figure out what is going on. Typically we either find a loose wire, an intermittent short, a bad power
board, or a bad control panel in service calls that we do locally. Unplug your treadmill and then check all
your wiring to make sure nothing is pinched, crimped or loose. Remove and replace each connector in
case corrosion is causing the problem. If the problem persists, you most likely have a bad control panel or
some call it a console.

Thank you in advance, sincerely. God bless you.

Thermal overload on motor keeps tripping around speed of 3.2 when being used. Will run at 11 for 5 minutes without anyone on belt. House breake does not trip in either case


I would check out the condition of your belt and deck.

When a running belt has excessive wear, it creates a lot of friction which causes the drive motor to work harder. When the drive motor works harder it will start overheating. If the belt is not lubricated periodically, it will ruin the deck, the drive motor, and cause other electrical problems such as tripping the breaker [after a while, the circuit breaker on the treadmill will need to be replaced.


It is suggested to lubricate the belt every month. At this point, you may need to replace both your deck and your running belt.

My question is, last night, I set the speed to 5mile/hr, the treadmill automatically stopped after 12mins( the belt stop, power was on). and I can not restart it immediately, Then after 5 mins, the belt...


A treadmill will shut down from to much friction which is due to high motor current because the walkbelt and deck are not properly lubricated. I would recommend replacing the motor controller,walkbelt,deck and applying .5 oz of lubricant on the deck every 3-6 months or 100 hours of use. This will extend your treadmill's life many years.
