Question about Startrac Fitness Products Star Trac 4500 Hr Treadmill Remanufactured

1 Answer

Clean or repair sticking buttons on TR4500 display

I've purchase a used StarTrac TR4500 that has display problems after 2 weeks of use. The display reads KeyDN, the user manual simply suggest a reset. Is there a procedure to clean / repair a touch button display? I don't know the name of this type keypad, but, the top is a sheet of plastic with approx 10 raised areas which can be slightly depressed - not like a computer keyboard.

This should be a warranty issue. Sometimes the keypads fail and need to be replaced, they are not repairable. Generally you need to remove the console covers to get at them upper control board. Then you need to peel off the keypad (usually this is like a bumper sticker. There will be slots and electrical ribbons from the keypad which are inserted (pushed into) the control board. with the replacement keypad carefully insert the ribbons into the slots and stick the new pad on the console (remember you get one shot), so carefully push it down, reattach the ribbons and put the console back togethyer

My horizon treadmill immediately stops after 2 seconds

StarTrac 4500 Treadmill NO RPM Error Probable Cause A) Damaged or misaligned RPM sensor
B) Display Cable
D) Filter Network
Corrective Action A) Check the connection of the RPM sensor to the lower control board. Inspect RPM sensor and disc for build up of dirt, dust, or debris. Clean if necessary. Verify RPM sensor and disc are properly aligned. Units equipped with an "optical" RPM sensor (uses plastic RPM disc) should have the disc evenly spaced between the walls of the RPM sensor. Adjust if necessary. Units equipped with a magnetic "cherry" RPM sensor (uses a metal RPM disc) should have the sensor spaced 1/8" away from the flywheel. Adjust if necessary. B) Inspect the display cable for any nicks or breaks. Replace if necessary. If there is no visible damage to the display cable, wiggle the display cable to verify intermittent connection. If by wiggling the display cable, the PWM LED on the lower control board does not flash or intermittently respond, replace the display cable.
C) Refer to the NO RPM Flowchart from the service manual for MCB testing.
D) Refer to the NO RPM Flowchart from the service manual for testing of Filter Network.
