Question about Exercise & Fitness
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.

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.
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.
