Repco fitness Treadmill error E7
This happened to mine, e7 is an error in the incline, meaning that the incline is too high or too low in the accepted range for the starting position of the treadmill. When the treadmill starts it looks to see if the incline screw shaft of the incline motor is in the correct position. If it isn't it gives the error message and shuts down. This happened to us after we had moved and the treadmill was bumped around a bit, this caused the incline worm shaft to move out of position, and that is why we got the error message.
To fix the problem I just took the cover off the motor area of the treadmill (WITH THE POWER OFF AND CORD DISCONNECTED) and located the incline motor, it has a threaded rod and a big nut coming along side the motor itself. It is the smaller motor. On the end of the threaded shaft is a plus sign cut into the shaft, so that you can insert a philips head screw driver into it and rotate the shaft. The shaft will rotate easily in one direction. Insert the screw driver into the end of the shaft and rotate the shaft so it goes as far into the big nut holding it as you can, don't twist it tightly, just make sure that the shaft has gone all the way in without binding, it still needs to rotate freely in and out. Put the cover back on and then switch it on. The treadmill should now start right up.
