Go HOOD cover motor follow the steps or ready your owner manual, and RUN the software calibration for easy diagnostic and fix it.

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

2. Insert a pencil (eraser end),
into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when

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

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.

the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum
speed, then stop on its own.

the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its
highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.

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
God bless you

SOURCE: nordictrack apex4100i level incline will not work

Try this calibration procedure.
Turn the power switch on. Remove the safety key. Hold the Stop and Speed Up or Speed Plus buttons down then insert the safety key.
The display should show some numbers.
Press the stop key one time and the display should show some other numbers and some 00's. Press the Incline Up button and see if the Incline begins to move, if it does let it go all the way up and then all the way down, wait a few seconds after it stops, then hit the stop key 4 times. It should be calibrated. If it didn't move then the board or the incline motor is bad.

SOURCE: Nordictrack motor will not run when start button is pushed.

Likely the cover of one of the motor brushes popped off. Unplug the machine before you pop it back in place, then try it again.

If that doesn't work, most likely it's the motor control board, or possibly the console, or finally just a loose connection behind the console.

But most likely, it's the motor brush cover. I've been seeing that alot with this model.

SOURCE: Proform 740CS runs okay but the incline does not

ProForm Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits. It worked for mine just 10 minutes ago; the procedure is in the manual if you have it. Good luck!

SOURCE: My treadmill is stuck in the max incline position

If the incline moves but only just a bit, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. We remove the motor from the treadmill, reconnect the wiring, and then try to run the incline motor outside the treadmill. Many times, this will unjam it if that is the problem and then reinstalling it in the treadmill will get it to work. If you have the same problem or it doesn’t run outside the machine and you can hear it try to work, you need to replace the incline motor.

Nordictrack treadmill commercial zs will light up the incline works fine but the belt won't move

the motor drive assembly is seperate from all the electronics that you program and the incline motor ,although it may not work if there is a "Saftey 'Clip that attaches to the machine and clips on yourself
it wont work without this "or if this Magnetic Clip is 'Faulty,
If you can lay Machine down on its side or look for a plastic cover at the front or underneith and see if you can Unscrew and access the
motor ..there may be a Overload Reset Button or Fuse just after where the Main Power Cord goes into the Tredmill.
tred mills also are common for getting pet fur and hair in the motor which can get caught up in the Brushes, (I Think it is Most likely a Fuse or overload switch that is inline with the main Drive Motor.(if you can post exact Model# of TREDMILL I can have a look at the Electrical Diagram and make a more accurate conclusion ,Cheers!

What is wrong with and how can I fix the incline on my Nordictrack commercial 1750 treadmill?

This sounds as though the motor is bad, they cost around $130.00, ther is a n electronic controller that controls it, but as it is trying to raise I would think that the switch and controller are functioning. Best of luck and please post back f this helps.

Treadmill stuck in -3 incline

Double check that all connections are secure, especially the console cable. Unplug and reconnect the console cable to verify.
Unplug treadmill from wall outlet. Wait 60 seconds, allowing lower board to discharge built-up energy.
Remove motor cover.
Verify that there are no lights lit on the lower circuit board.
Verify that all wires are securely and correctly placed on the lower circuit board, especially the large wire harness on the top of the circuit board with 12 different colored wires coming out of it.

Pro form 835qt stops working after a few min. Took off cover and it smells very hot in the control section. What looks like a transformer seems to be putting out the most heat. any ideas?

that part is on the incline motor if that is hot and you are not inclining then something is wrong with the incline motor or the controller board

Incline goes up and down

I had the SAME problem, several time, with my NordicTrack A2250 Treadmill.
Allow it to go fully up and then fully down several times, without turning it off. IT seems to "cycle" that way 3 times and then "reboots" itself and starts working normally, again.
I had to figure this out myself... none of the suggestions I read worked.

Treadmill Incline Works, belt does not move

Check the drive belt. It may be loose or broken. If the belt is loose, then to tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down.
