I have recently installed treadmill motor brushes but now treadmill is not calibrating,calibration takes start and when calibration comes to check the slow speed it stuck there and keep calibrating it


Hi There, Please check that you have the small feedback connectors snug and proper. Some treads have them on a front or rear roller and some also have a motor feedback. Or - Try to power down and back up and try to run treadmill normally, not in cal mode, and see if the unit responds to your speed selections correctly. During "calibrations" the upper board (usually) is looking for a specific feedback signal, if it cannot be found it usually stops the tread, but in cal mode it may sit there waiting for it's feedback sweet-spot before continuing. What make, year and model of tread?

When starting, the motor starts sluggishly. It sounds different and goes very slowly. At higher speeds, way high, it runs fine. Speed censor says one thing, but tread moving very slowly.


Treadmills are usually made up of various components. The rolling surface (tread) is usually placed on a set of rollers when the unit starts due to the low friction between both the surface (tread) and the rollers the surface (tread) starts slowly while the rollers move regularly and the sensor is placed on the movement of the rollers.
What you need to do is get the unit serviced usually there is a way the tread it tightened to have better grip on the rollers. This method differs from one make to the other so get an expert who knows about proform rollers. Once the system is tightened the problem will be solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Your Problem: Spirit Treadmill motor will not turn on


I'd start by attaching a voltmeter across the motor contacts to see if you get any voltage when the unit is turned on. It's probably an AC motor but I'd check the label to be sure. If you get voltage but no turning either the motor or a startup capacitor is bad. If this is the case try moving the tread by hand with the unit turned on. If it moves on it's own after you start it moving then the start up cap needs to be replaced. Otherwise it may be time to replace the motor. If you don't have voltage across the motor contacts when the machine is turned on, I'd unplug the unit and trace the lines back from the motor to somewhere on the PC board. I'm guessing there's probably a relay on the PC board that controls the motor. I'd use an ohm meter to make sure the relay coil hasn't turned into an open circuit. Next I'd put a voltmeter across the relay coil, plug the unit back in, and turn the treadmill on and off several times. Ideally you should see the voltage across the relay coil go up and down as you turn the treadmill on and off. This voltage could be AC or DC depending on the type of relay used. If you get the proper voltage across the coil but the relay contacts aren’t' opening and closing to provide power to the motor then you need to replace the relay. If you don't get the proper voltage across the relay coil the problem is further back on the PC board.
