there is a starter solenoid inside it works the speed setting. controls speed 1-2-3. 4 it bypasses it. in side the fan you will see a black box with c66 somthing that will need to be changed as that is the part that controls the speed.
Possible these object woul dhave got logged into the shaft or the gaps within and thereby made the movement tight. The program controller initiates the motor but since the mechanism is jammed the motor is tripped. So use a multimeter to check the motor , the voltage to the motor so as to confirm . If so remove the assembly to reset. Check manually with the hand - power disconnected- till there is free movement.
Does the screen turn on (blue) and then go black or does it stay blue? Mine has a similar problem where when the main power switch is flipped, it lights up, shows the initialization screen, then goes dark. Pressing any button on the console does nothing. I opened the console up and suspect one programmable microcontroller is bad. I'm going to see if I can get that part from FitnessQuest instead of replacing the whole board.
A potentiometer would overheat because when you tell it to turn the power down, it basically just runs the extra power through a heating element, which will probably catch it on fire for something that large. A dimmer switch changes the voltage that goes in, and is generally meant for incandescent lights. If you wired a regular old dimmer switch up, the motor would probably sound weird, and the dimmer switch or motor would break, possibly starting a fire. It's illegal to use a regular light dimmer switch on anything but an incandescent light socket. However, you can easily find a controller that will work. Look for a fan speed controller or motor speed controller. Make sure it's rated for the correct voltage and has an amp rating not exceeded by the fan's rating. These look like a dimmer switch but are designed to deliver the power the motor needs. See link http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=70801-539-SFSQ-FH-IV&lpage=none
Sounds like a overheating issue. Try facing a large fan blowing across the back of the unit and see if this changes anything. If it does, it might help to blow the back out with compressed air as dust might be helping it overheat.
