Recheck your wiring and check your ground. If all that checks out then triple check your control board. Also the motor SHOULD have a reset button make sure that the button is not out and it is fully pushed in

When on treadmill there is a "studder"

Check if the running belt is lubricated. You can't run an engine without oil. So, spray a good quality silicone lubricant on the base of the running belt. It is best if you spray on a lint free cloth just enough to make a wet patch. Do it outside so that no spray residue lands on the floor and becomes slippery or lands on the carpet and stains it, then return inside and lift the treadmill running belt and soak or smear the base with the wet patch of the cloth and run for a full minute. Then lift the belt again and give it another swipe on the entire base, then feel the base with your fingers or hand to see if it feels wet and smooth. Run the treadmill for another minute at slow speed, otherwise the liquid can fly and splatter on wall or floor. If it still hasn't solved the problem, then it must be the motor brushes, or it may be set to run slow and fast according to the running settings on the console. Mine does the same thing if it is programmed to do 1 minute slow and one minute a bit faster. Good luck.

My proform 590 treadmill has these problems ; belt slips when running or walking ,speed goes up and down does not stay constant and you can hear motor noise increasing and decreasing in motor what should...

simple(maybe). go to the rear of treadmill,get the allen wrench that came with it,run at med-slow speed and adjust the rear roller with allen wrench. 1 turn per side 2 or 3 time then walk on belt until wont slip. all the problem is belt tension. also. make sure if it need lubrication under board and belt(some are lubless others dont).

good luck to you.

2) Inspect the drive belt motor, if is loose, Retight.
3) See if there loose wires for MOTOR.and retight.
4) The walking belt LIFT wiht your finger must be 2-3"
otherwise Readjust with the allen screw rear.

My Proform XP 650e Treadmill starts and suddenly stops. The belt turns real fast then it suddenly shuts down like the power was turned off.

This condition is when the treadmill goes to full speed as soon as you power up the treadmill. Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller.

Proform 2500 treadmill stuck in incline position

Under the motor shroud their is a instruction mini manual it will have a how to calibrate the incline motor, if that does not fix it then you may have to manually adjust the incline motor and sometimes it will take awhile to realign . If that does not work replacing the motor maybe the only option

If I understand correct, the treadmill will not run correct unless you have the safety key in. Well yes this is correct because once the safety key is removed the treadmill will stop. If your treadmill is running extremely fast just by turning it on, you may need a new speed sensor.

Belt needs tensioning up on its adjusters or the motor drive gear has come loose and needs tightening back up.
