    I AM GOING TO TRY ALL THOSE IDEAS. BUT I WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT THAT SOMETIMES I TRY TO USE IT AND IT STARTS TO WORK FINE FOR A WHILE, BUT AFTER A SHORT TIME THE PANEL GETS STUCK AND THE ONLY KEY THAT WORKS IS THE INCLINE UP BUTTON AND THE STOP BUTTON. I WILL LET YOU KNOW THE RESULTS.

    THANKS.

  • patogonzalez May 20, 2009

    I TRIED EVERYTHING AND DID NOT WORK. ANY MORE IDEAS?

  • patogonzalez May 25, 2009

    NOTHING HAS WORKED. ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS? THE PANEL IS STILL NOT WORKING RIGHT. IT CAN NOT BE THE PANEL NOR THE MOTOR CONTROLLER, I ALREADY CHANGED BOTH FOR NEW ONES.

    THANKS.

Are you sure its the panel or is it the motor RPM sensor bad? When the senor becomes missaligned or broken the main drive motor will not operate. Some treadmills also have seperate fused for the panel and motor. Hope this helps.

HI
Stand to the side of your treadmill and push your belt with your foot. Then start the treadmill. If you have worn motor brushes this can kinda jump start it and it may move the belt in a jerky manner. You would need to replace motor brushes and clean the commutator.
If on the other hand your treadmill doesn't start and stops when you quite pushing. Then your motor brushes are totally burnt or you lower control board may be out.
OR
You can try unplugging the treadmill and when you plug it back in the control board start-sequence might correct the issue. Or you can try recalibrating the walk speed according to the troubleshooting procedure in the image below, which might also reset the board. But most times the incline sticks in the up position on that model due to damaged wires going from the console down to the motor and control boards. There are actually two sets of wires that connect together inside the handlebar upright, a short one coming down from the console and a longer one coming up from the motor and control boards. They are the Console Cable and the Console Mast Cable in the Sears PartsDirect site images below. The two are likely still plugged together or you would have no functions at all, but the wiring can get pinched between the console and the uprights the wires run through. Or, they can be damaged by the end of one of the bolts or another connection point in the upright. Testing the wires for continuity with a meter is not always an accurate way to confirm this since you may not be able to determine partial breaks or shorts in the wiring and even partial damage can cause this issue. The only way to confirm the problem for certain is to remove the wires and give them a careful visual inspection. Be sure to make a note of where all the wires connect on each end to help with the reassembly. If it turns out the wiring is okay then you might have an issue with the incline motor itself, but that is much more rare.

hope this will solve your probs
regards

    hi

    chek this sites,hope it will work out.

    http://www.associatedcontent.com/article...

    several things can cause the belt not to run or not run well,nd tht stops the treadmill to work ! so start with the easiest to fix items first like lubrication and tension adjustment (get a manual from the website if you don't have one--it covers this adjustment). Maybe clean the speed sensor wheel with compressed air.



    Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.

    Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.



    OR

    find someone who knows something about electronics, and have them check for a fuse on the treadmill (some have them, some don't). If there is one, check and replace it, if necessary (BTW, if you are using any kind of surge suppressor between the wall socket and the treadmill, disconnect it from the treadmill, then connect the treadmill directly to the wall socket; likewise, do not use any extension cords). If there is no fuse or if there's nothing wrong with the existing one, then disconnect it for at least an hour, then plug it in and wait. Press the "start" (or similar) button. If nothing happens, then the device might be shot. If it goes on and off, as you said, then you might have a short in the power cord, and should get it professionally replaced (warning: it could cost as much as $100 for a $5 do-it-yourself repair, but, for heaven's sake, don't do it unless you know what you're doing .

    hope this will sort your problem

    regards.

My HEALTHRIDER H95T treadmill is stuck in the fully elevated (level 12) angle on the platform and will not move


The incline motor is jammed due to a faulty incline sensor or incline motor assy. This is somewhat hazardous if you do not know what you are doing to remove the incline motor. Sometimes you can repair it most of the time you replace the incline motor assy. Must be calibrated upon completion.

I have different issues with threadmill


Sounds to me like the motor has a shorted field coil or open or shorted armature. The motor is bad, you can order a new one at the companies website.

1) tight all connector wires and clean
2) tight the ribbon cables from keypads.
3) Run the software calibration for diagnose, and troubleshooting, and fix it.
4) lube the shaft and gear in the elevation motor,
5) adjust the potentiometer for better running see the diagram.
God bless you

When starting my treadmill the incline just starts all by itself, all the way up, sounds like it would keep going if it could, then it declines, its stuck in this loop. the belt never starts and I cannot...


This sounds like the treadmill is running an incline calibration. It will run to fully inclined, then to minimum incline.
It should not do this every time you want to operate the machine, but they will do it automatically if the operation of the machine is stopped by the power being interrupted..

Incline works all button works but the start button want start


If you have a unit where the start button is not working most of these units will make some sort of beeping sound if you depress start button and no sound it maybe the key pad itself is causing this problem. Depending on manufacturer you can purchase the keypad/overlay and some will want you to purchase the entire display.

My health rider treadmill s300se is stuck in the highest incline position. How do i get it level again?


Try putting the key in while holding the down incline button in. This resets the height mechanism. Repeat with the up incline button.

Worked for me.
