1. You may have a worn belt and deck problem ( #1 problem on treadmills ). Test by the following procedure:
a) without the power on stand on the walking belt
b) push the belt in the direction it normally turns
c) if the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill) this means that you have high belt/deck friction.
You must physically inspect the belt and deck. The deck should be smooth. The belt should have a consistent feel from side to side (a belt can be worn out without any sensory signs of a problem). If you feel deep grooves in the deck or uneven wear on the underside of the belt, part replacement is necessary. Continued use of your treadmill may damage expensive electrical components. If their is no signs of excessive wear then the next step is to lubricate the deck follow this procedure:
Before applying lubricant, the belt must have the tension reduced and cleaned deck. Loosen the tension roller by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. Do not loosen the bolts in the tension roller too far or the bolts will come out of the roller shaft. This step may not be necessary for your treadmill model or belt and deck condition.
Contaminants are the worst enemy of your belt and deck. Some treadmills may have an excessive accumulation of dirt and contaminants. If these are trapped during the belt lube process, significant damage will occur. Lift the belt and slide a moist towel between belt and deck, slide the towel the length of the unit to catch the contaminants do this a number of times inspect towel and need be use a fresh towel and repeat cleaning let dry then apply the lube in the center upper third of deck then start unit and walk on it @ 1-2mph for about 5 min. You may purchase the lube from National Gym Supply @ gympart.com Part# TM001 or call them @ 1-800-496-7278 their on the west coast. At this point I believe your problem should be resolved if the above procedures have taken care of problem take a look at the next step, as mentioned the #1 cause of treadmill failure is lack of maintenance of the belt and deck.
On occasion, you may have already damaged the DC board if you have high belt/deck friction. If the belt walks freely, you have a different problem.
2. If it passes the belt/deck checks, you may have a DC board output problem. If the belt tests ok and you have a speed variation, try this test:

Hold the upper end of the treadmill with your right hand on the back end of the unit. Using your left hand, pull the lock knob to the left and hold it. Pivot the treadmill down until the frame is past the pin on the lock knob. Note: You may need to push the handrail to the side slightly. 2. Move in front of the back end and hold the treadmill firmly with both hands, and lower the treadmill to the floor. CAUTION: To decrease the possibility of injury, bend your legs and keep your back straight

SOURCE: treadmill kph to mph
No need to take console apart, power up the treadmill, take the safety key out then hold down the start button and the incline down button at the same time then insert the safety key. You'll now be able to toggle between KPH and MPH by using start button

SOURCE: converting kph to mph
press and hold the stop button while placing the key on, then release and hit speed + or - I don't remember which right now. One turns the store demo on/off and the other is for mph/kph

I know this is an old thread, but if you are still trying to change between mph and km, then follow these instructions.
The setting is changed by a switch on the console circuit board. Unplug the power cable. You will need a medium philips screwdriver. The console is fixed to the frame with 4 screws, climb under the console and remove 2 screws from the top and 2 screws from the bottom. Get back up and lift the console up slightly making sure you do not dislodge any cables from either the left or right-hand side of the console. Look under the console from the left-hand side, in the middle of the circuit board you will see a small slide switch (silver casing with black slider), slide it to the other position. You will see next to the switch the letters mph and kpmh. gently reseat the console, put the 4 screws back in, the console should now display the speed in kmph when you plug it back in and turn it on.
All the best
