If the colse buttons make a chirping noise when you push them the console should be Ok. If there is no chirping noise with the push it is a bad console. If everything but the speed works it will probably be your motor controller that is bad.

I have the exact same problem with the very same treadmill that i bouth 10 years ago and it has been sitting for 5 years unused. The last time it was turned on it worked but now that I plug it in and try to start it, everything works but the belt drive motor. Any ideas?

This condition is when the treadmill goes to full speed as soon as you power up the treadmill. Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller.

ICON CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS- INCLINE
1) Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. If this doesn’t work, click on the help topic entitled “Alternate Calibration Codes” for key sequence instructions to enter calibration.
2) Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test.
3) Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
4) THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP BECAUSE YOU WILL GET AN ERROR MESSAGE IF THIS STEP IS SKIPPED.After completing calibration of incline, press the Stop key and then remove the safety key.

If you can walk on your treadmill but you get a burning smell from it, you have a bad problem and discontinue use immediately and unplug the treadmill.
Burning smells are most commonly associated with the following problems:
1) Very high belt/deck friction.
2) Short in the motor.
3) Short in the wiring or electronics.
4) Literally cooking the lacquer or cardboard core (on cheap machines) in the motor from belt friction or a drive system
Friction is the #1 cause of this problem. Many cheaper treadmills have a motor with a cardboard core (people wonder why we are so
down on cheap treadmills) and if the voltage and amperage through the motor heats it up sufficiently, it begins to smolder. If this is the
case, you normally have to replace the belt and the motor and inspect the deck. If the armature has cooked enough in the motor, you
also have to replace the motor.
If the belt and deck check out OK, check for a short in the motor. You can run the motor with an independent power source like a fullycharged
cordless drill battery to see if the symptoms are the same. Click on the following link for our motor test.
If the belt and deck check out and the motor is OK, then check your wiring and electronics for signs of scorching and replace the
