I know this thread is a little old, but did you get your treadmill working? I have a 550e that does the same thing. The company has sent me 2 controller boards, but still doesn't work.

SOURCE: My Pro Form 580 XP slows down suddenly while on,

If you have not ever lubricated the running deck then I suggest doing so . What happens is that the lack of lubrication will tend to make the belt drag thus slowing down the belt making the motor control board to try to compensate the drag.

SOURCE: the proform 980 turns on but just goes to incline

It is trying to its starting point I would suggest is to unplug the unit open the motor shroud unit. The shroud it has a mini manual this should have a calibration instructions that can be done and also upper electronics self test to see if the processor is functioning properly. It should give a better idea which to head. You can call Icon Fitness@ 1-800999-3756

SOURCE: My Pro-form 980 CS will not start. I plug the key

Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. This should get you into calibration mode. 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. If you cannot get into calibration or if the EPROM test fails then the upper console will have to be replaced.
If you get pass to this point then proceed with the calibrating the incline and speed.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
Be careful the treadmill will run at full speed in the 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.
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.

How to recalibate a pro-form 595LE treatmill.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
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.

Ifit treadmill will not incline but everything else works, how do I fix the incline


You may need to calibrate the incline. Do this with the following procedure.
Safety key out
press the stop and speed up buttons at the same time while inserting the safety key. (you are now in diagnostics)
press the stop button one time only.
now press the incline up button (incline motor should start moving up)
incline will go up to the top and then all the way to the bottom. when it gets done you can remove the key. Reinsert the key and you should be operating normally.
Good luck Tim
