Treadmill 8712wm pro 1200- the incline will not go down. It has a manual wire to the shock. The wire is not broke. Could it be that the shock is bad?

Do a Calibration on the treadmill. Take out the safety key. With 2 fingers, hold down the stop button and the speed up or spped plus button. keep holding them down as you insert the safety key, then let go of both.
Press the stop button 1 time, you should see all 0's in the windows, or EP 2P or something weird like that.
Press the Incline up button and then wait. If the incline go up until it stalls then down until it stalls the stops at the bottom, the you are recalibrated, take out the safery key and put it back in to see if all is well. If the incline takes off up again without touching a button, the you have wiring problems or control problems. Call service company to get it repaired.

SOURCE: My Proform treadmill will not incline. It is stuck

Under the hood there should be a tech sheet with calibration instructions. I have not worked on these for several years or I would rattle off the procedure. If the sheet is still there make sure you put it back in the plastic sleeve for next time..... Eric

SOURCE: Treadmill incline error

Try this, it fixed it for me, if it doesn't work let me know
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIIxoPtvhy8

I bought a used Precor 9.4 treadmill, but the incline adjustment was not working.
So, I did the following.
1. Turn off, unplug the treadmill and wait for an hour (this is for safety
2. Remove the black motor cover
3. Observe the transformer to the right of the motor and towards the belt ( I point to it in the video)
This transformer converts DC electricity to AC electricity and the AC current goes directly to the Incline motor which is in the black box towards the front of the machine.
4. On mine the wires had come loose from the transformer, they were soldered on very poorly, the wires are stiff and you should be able to see 4 wires coming from the top of the circuit board and plugging into the transformer, I had three of the 4 wires loose.
5. If you are not comfortable working with electronics or soldering DO NOT DO THIS REPAIR, you could get shocked very badly if you just go poking around in there with metal objects, get a friend who knows how to solder or hire someone.

6. It took about 5 minutes I just heated up my $10 soldering gun from radio shack and soldered all the loose wires that were about a millimeter away from the tabs on the back of the transformer, and VOILA! The incline now works!

Treadmill is stuck in incline postion and can not put down. screen says error


Unplug the treadmill. Remove motor cover . Look for the incline motor, follow the wires coming from the incline motor to the controll board. Starting from the top you will see a red,white and black wire. Under those wires you will see a white and black ( do not remove the lower white and black). Remove the red wire and the black wire . Swap the positions. Plug the treadmill back in and turn with the safty key in place.. The treadmill should go back down. Once it's down . Remove all 3 incline motor wires from the controller. This will get it back down so you can use it. It will still give you the incline err , just press stop to bypass it. As for what is causing the problem , a number of thing can cause this problem. I would call sole and ask for a tech in your area unless you're in NC you could call us. Good luck

Cant get treadmill to unfold completely


You have gas shocks on each side of the unit need to see if they are dry and causing the unit not to fully fold down use a little machine oil on the rods this should take of it if not, either the shock are defective or some how you manage to fold the unit when the incline was not at its minimum.
1) engage key the look at incline display needs to be either 0 or 1 degree 2) if shock are defective replace shocks. Hope this help!!

Vitamaster treadmill incline doesn't work. Hasn't been used in years. Suggestions??


I had the same problem. I took the thing apart and found a box with several relays in it. When I figured out which one controlled the incline, I tapped on it with a plastic screwdriver handle. Fortunately it was just stuck and that fixed it. I hope you are as lucky as I was.

Treadmill not working properly. Incline keeps slipping.


there is a plastic spacer at the rack area on the incline mtr- this white plastic spacer has broken, only recourse u have is to unplug the white wire on incline mtr, and never have a incline, or replace incline mtr when you find out how much the mtr is you might want to walk with out incline- if you was in my area, I have them cheaper
