Sound like a speed sensor adjustment here the steps for this procedure:
1. Unplug unit then remove the plastic motor cover. There are either 4 or 5 screws holding the cover in place depending on the model.
2. Locate the speed sensor between the front roller pulley and the frame of the treadmill. It is a small plastic piece approx 1 1/4” long and 1/4” in diameter with a black wire coming from the back of it leading to the electronic board in the motor compartment .
3. Locate the magnets mounted in the face of the pulley. (approx. 3/8” in diameter) 4. The end of the sensor should be positioned approximately 1/8” from the magnet at the closest point.
5. Follow the wire from the sensor to the control board. Make sure the connection is pressed firmly down on the board.

SimplerFASTERSolution So, I had the same problem. After removing the motor cover I checked everything out per earlier instructions. Everything looked great. Having been a software geek for as long as I've been running (35 years), I as inclined to believe this wasn't a hardware problem at all. It appeared to me that the system just needed to be recalibrated.'s what I did. I turned the treadmill on and selected the "Manual" program and hit "Start". The monitor, as usual, counted down 3-2-1. As soon as the rollers started to move I hit the "Slow" button on the right upright several times so I knew that the treadmill was running at it's slowest speed. I then started walking on the belt. I started tapping the "Fast" button and let the belt gradually increase in speed and took it up to 6.0. No problem! But...nobody wants to start each workout that slowly. I had a hunch it was 'fixed'. So, I stopped the treadmill and turned everything off. I started it again, selected "Manual", immediately hit the "2" then he "4" then the "6" on the right hand "Speed" panel, and it ran like new. No service call, no new speed sensor, no fiddling with the little 'diode', etc. Give this a try need to even remove the motor cover. Best of luck!

My Sole F80 deck bounces excessivly when not at an incline.

1) Lube the deck belt, this problem is lack of maintenance, maybe the deck belt is worn.
2) You must align the deck belt see the diagram
3) Lube the rollers bearing very well very important too

Belt wont start on a brand new Sole F80. Motor

It sound like the motor control board is the culprit. Unplug unit then remove shroud then find the 2 leads that connects the motor to the motor control board disconnect them then plug in unit and see if the display blackout after programing the display then hitting start.
