3) tight the ribbon cable inside console board, and clean it.

If the console takesbatteries, replace them. If this does not work or your console does not requirebatteries, check the reed switch or optic sensor. Reed Switch: Unplug the treadmill andremove the motor hood cover. The reed switch is mounted on the frame next tothe front roller pulley. There is a magnet glued into the front roller pulley.When adjusting the reed switch, make sure it is pointing directly at themagnet. Move the tip of the reed switch within 1/8" of the magnet. Also,check to see that the wire is not damaged, and is connected to the console. Optic Sensor: Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood cover. The optic diskand sensor are located either at the end of the motor or the right hand side ofthe front roller. The optic disk spins between two sensors on the optic switch.The disk must spin freely without touching either sensor. The sensors can bemoved by loosening the adjustment bolt holding the switch to its bracket. Theswitch can then be slid. Center the disk.
After you did these adjustments: Please tight the keypanel flexible cable vs display board and then tight the connector from display board vs lower board.
Try to clean the keypanel with spray contact cleaner with carefully and patience.
See diagrams. Good luck, sincerely. G-d bless you.
With the block diagram that I did you will have a strong resultant if the keypanel board is faulty or display board completely. See how the main motor control has 90% functions in any treadmills.

1) tight the bolts tension for magnet and clean very well. and proof..if the fail
2) go to test the magnet, use again the magnet from your refrigerator magnet, for attraction and repulsion. If do not pass the TEST replace the magnet in any Hardware such home depot, etc.
