SOURCE: Treadmill runs then stops. E1 error and sometimes works fine.

Yes if speed sensor is too far from magnet it will not pick up belt movement. This confuses the computer and as a safety precaution it shuts the machine off. Find speed sensor and check for proper alighment with magnet.

SOURCE: there's power but the machine itself won't work.

Hi, check if it is possible: main fuse in electronic board, normally all the board has a small relay, so when treadmill is on 4 or 5 seconds relay sounds with a click, if you press start and treadmill doesn´t move could be a problem with PMW circuit, MOSFET, Diode, diode zener and small transistors.

Best regards.

SOURCE: NordicTrack Z7xi treadmill console buttons not working

Hello there. It sounds as if you may have a button stuck on your console. Thus not allowing any other buttons to be pushed. (i.e. the 4 beeps). This is usually caused by the i-fit buttons (silver buttons on the front). If the machine is only 4 months old you should still be under warranty (1 year) I believe. This problem in most instances requires the console be replaced. You can contact nordictrack through iconservice.com or by using the number on the fron of your users manual.
Good Luck! Tim

First of all you need a Surge protector, you can get one from Nordictrack.com, it is on sale. Secondly, unplug the treadmill and leave it unplugged for at least 24 hours. Before you plug it back again, make sure you already have a surge protector on your outlet. Also make sure Trreadmill is the only load on this circuit. Plug it and try again. I had the same problem, and mine works this way. Some times, with dilrty power, the bit get set and the bottons stop working. Good Luck!

The Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration
1. Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)
2. Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).
3. Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.
4. If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.
5. Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
6. Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
7. Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
8. Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
9. Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."
10. Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.
11.Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.
12. Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.
13. When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.
14. Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.
If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step.

Calibration for "Newer Style" Consoles

The Calibration sequence can generally be used to accomplish the following: 1) To reset the treadmill's speed software, if the running belt seems to be moving faster or slower than the speed indicated on the console. 2) To reset the treadmill's incline software, if the walking deck seems to be elevated higher or lower than the height indicated on the console. 3) To synchronize the treadmill's electronic package ANY TIME a replacement part (anything electrical) has been installed and is being prepared for use. 4) This should be the first step performed when attempting to diagnose or troubleshoot the unit.Calibration often helps in correcting minor "bugs" in the software (by "resetting"), before actually having to replace components.

Before You Begin:

You must first determine the model number and style of unit of the unit being worked on. Do this by:

  • Powering up the treadmill and removing the emergency stop key (usually a magnetic plastic piece that attaches to the top, center of the console). If you see "10" in the console, it is an old style console and the "Older Style" Calibration should be referenced. If an "SI-1" appears in the console, it is a newer console. The following calibration sequence can be performed.

Note: To change any of the current codes (if incorrect or out of sync), use the SPEED + or SPEED -(minus) button(s).

Refer to the Calibration Chart (or the unit's owner's manual if not on the chart) to verify that the calibration codes on the unit (represented as "??" below) are correct.

The Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration

  1. Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)

  2. Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).

  3. Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.

  4. If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.

  5. Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  6. Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  7. Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  8. Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  9. Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."

  10. Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.

  11. Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.

  12. Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.

  13. When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.

  14. Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.

  15. If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step.

Nordic Track c2200 no speed signal. My NT c2200 treadmill behaved erratically briefly (sudden speed changes up and down) before quitting altogether. The console now behaves as though it's working but the...


It likely is the controller if it was speeding up and down erratically. Check the position of the reed switch to make sure it is positioned about 1/8" away from the magnet in the side of the front roller pulley. Run a diagnostic program as follows. Press the stop and speed arrow up buttons until you insert the key. Press the stop once or twice until you get to a screen with 2 sets of zeros. Now press and hold the speed arrow up button until one number set shows 8.5. The unit will go to full speed so be careful not to be on the walking belt. The other number set should top out shortly at either 10.0 or 12.0 based on whether your speed buttons go up to 10 or 12. If the motor races past your top number,( don't let it run that way as you may damage the motor), pull the key. If the readout is above or below your target by more than .4 and not flucuating a lot, you may need to tune the potentiometer on the controller. Counter clockwise turn with a phillips screwdriver turns the motor speed down. Be carefull not to short out the controller board by touching components with screwdriver. If not comfortable ask a friend with electronics background. If you turn the pot. too far it will break. It will not go a full revolution in either direction and tiny movements are recommended. Again I believe your controller needs replacing.

Will not move belt


Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key.
Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
BE CAREFUL, THE TREADMILL WILL RUN AT FULL SPEED IN THIS NEXT MODE! DO NOT STAND ON THE WALKING BELT. Press the Speed Up key and hold it down until 85 is shown in the Distance window (some models may show the 85 number in another window).
If the top speed of the treadmill does not match the displayed speed on the computer console, adjust the max speed potentiometer (pot) on the motor control board. This is the board that the red and black motor wires connect directly into in the motor area. The Max Speed pot is clearly labeled. The max speed potentiometer is a small square with a mobile center and is located in one corner of the board and is labeled MAX SPD. It is near the harness that carries the speed signal labeled H,W,L. Using a small insulated screwdriver adjust this potentiometer clockwise to speed up and counter-clockwise to slow down the max speed of the treadmill. A tiny turn of this potentiometer will make a big difference in speed so be careful when making adjustments. It is not important to get the speed set exactly at the max speed of the treadmill but do make sure to get the speed within .2 MPH of the max speed of the treadmill. For instance if the max speed of the treadmill is 10 MPH, make sure to have the speed set between 9.8 MPH and 10.2 MPH. Some models have a 12 MPH top speed, so please check your manual if you aren’t sure. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP BECAUSE YOU WILL GET AN ERROR MESSAGE IF THIS STEP IS SKIPPED. After completing calibration of the speed, press the Speed Down key. The treadmill will automatically return to 0 MPH. Please allow the unit to stop completely before continuing. Press the Stop key once and remove the safety key.

i just called the manufacturer on this and found out i have a faulty control panel, but these are the steps they told me to go through to reset. If it works, then you are good, if not, you may also have a control panel issue.
1. plug in and turn on treadmill, keep red key out
2. press and hold the stop button and speed up button at the same time and hold them while you insert the red key
3. after red key is inserted, let go of both buttons
**CAUTION - be sure to stand on side bars of treadmill, clear of the belt for this next part bc it will go VERY FAST***
4. press stop button once
5. press speed up button until it reads 85 (see what i mean?!)
6. press stop button once
7. press incline down or up one time and it should get back into normal mode. mine just started a series of flashing lights and "8"s in all the "windows" so my panel needs to be replaced. here is the number i called - 1-877-993-7999. Good Luck!
