SOURCE: replaced the motor controls
Is there a sheet of paper under the motor hood? It has the procedures for this calibration of the motor speed. Caution ! You should use a plastic screwdriver to make adjustment to the speed control on the motor controller. It is high voltage

Either the belt has stretched (normal wear over time) or the tension needs to be readjusted to tighten it. Every treadmill is different, and some can't be adjusted, so I can't really help with particulars, but if you get down and look really carefully, you'll be able to find the tension adjustment mechanism if it exists. Good Luck.

If this is the same problem you had prior to replacing the MCB and speed sensor. I would check the drive motor, unplug unit then remove motor shroud then unplug the connectors leading to the motor itself. If you have wire leads and a 18v drill battery connect the leads into motor then attach the other end to you battery and if the motor will rotate ( approx. 1mph) , if it does the check speed sensor to see if the correct spacing between sensor and front roller ( check if the magnet has not fallen out of front roller pulley this also can cause you problems) hope this help!!

SOURCE: I have a MC2100-12A motor
The speed sensor on these machines have nothing to do with controlling the speed. The machine will run without it. The sensor is obviously working, since you are getting a speed reading.
The calibration is a mechanical adjustment found on the motor controller, the instructions are found under the lid as well as the meaning of the LEDs flashes on the tech sheet..
Follow the calibration procedure. If the operation is still erratic, I would suspect a defective controller.
Calibration: Press stop and speed up. Install the safety key/magnet. release the buttons. Press stop 1 time. one window displays speed, the other the calibration number. Both should be "0".
Press speed up, the treadmill should begin to move around 25-30. increase to 85, the machine should be a max speed. adjust the pot on the motor board to max speed. Some machines are 10mph, others 12mph. The tech sheet will tell you the max speed. When adjusted, press speed down. the machine will stop. Now press incline up. That will calibrate the incline. When completed, remove the safety key.
If operation is still erratic, change the motor controller.. It could be the console, but the cost of replacement makes the repair in most cases uneconomical..
