My kettler tx1 marathon running machine causes the electricity to swith off in the house. This occurs when I start the treadmill, not when I simply switch it on. Any idea as to the cause?


The motor or the Motor control board is faulty. Can be the motor brush or the shorted igbt transistor in the motor contol board. If you wish to get some more details about treadmill repair then check the following link.

How do I clear error code F0022 on the vfd 440micromaster


The fault message F0022 "Hardware monitoring active" is displayed by overcurrent measured in the DC link.

detailed information you see in the Parameter List under chapter "Faults and Alarms"; Entry-ID: 23708204
Amongst other things, a short circuit of IGBT or a short circuit of chopper are possible reasons. The fault is permanent so the inverter cannot be started without the fault is occurring. In the case that the fault occurs, if all of the external cables (with the exception from the line supply voltage) are disconnected, then with a high degree of probability the drive unit is defective and must be repaired.

There are possible operating conditions at a sporadic occurring failure message F0022:

sudden load changes or mechanical obstructions
extremely short ramp-up times
poor optimization of the sensorless closed-loop vector control
incorrect braking resistor is installed with an excessively low resistance

Error codes troubleshooting


I found the manual, and the error codes start on page 41.
W002 something like input under voltage and E007 IGBT sat, what ever that means.
Save the manual for future usage.

I have a Nordictrack C2200 treadmill that I haven't used for a while. I went to use it again and the motor starts then stops almost immediately. Lights are on and incline works. If I push STOP and...


hi,
You have to check the Driver circuit board for the motor. There is motor control IGBT Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) in this board .If the IGBT is short then the treadmill will try to run at high speed without setting any value or witout pressing the start button and will shut down . You have to check the OHMS between the seocnd and third of lead of the IGBT. If it shows less than 100 Ohms then the IGBT is short and you have to replace the same. Also you have to check the connection to the control pannel. Is there is any loose conatct. Remove the connection in the motor control board which go to the control pannel and reconnect it. Also check the speed sensor. In most of the treadmill you can find the speed sensor near the motor pully. Remove the speed sensor and clean it and the refix it. Remember one thing remove the power of the treadmill and leave it for 30 minutes then only oppen the treadmill. Because there is high voltage storage capacitors in the motor control board which will hold charge for some time even after the power is disconnected. i have added the picture of IGBT for your refference.

I have a image 17.5 s when i press start the treadmill belt will start and then turn off. i already check the motor with a 18v battery and it work find. could this be the motor control?


hi,
First of all you hve to check the speed sensor near the motor pully. Clean the speed sensor and check the treadmill. I the problem remains then You have to check the Driver circuit board for the motor. From your naration the motor is ok . Why the circut breaker trips because, if the IGBT( insulated gate bipolar transistor) is short then, when you press the start button the motor will try to drain a high current from the power line.IGBT controll the voltage to the motor.When it get shorted the applied voltage will go to the motor without regulation. Also you have to check the rectifier diode. The IGBT will look like one in the picture. Check the ohms between the seond and third pins of the IGBT. It should be above 1 kohm. Remember one thing remove power before oppening working in the treadmill. Because it have live area all over the driver board.
ok
