You may have a belt and deck problem. Test by the following procedure:
without the power on stand on the walking belt, push the belt in the, direction it normally turns. If the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill) this means that you have high belt/deck friction I first apply silicone lubricant and see if that clear up the problem. Most problems originate from the belt and deck 75 to 85% of the time.

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.

SOURCE: display shows LS1low speed code

I had all the low speed codes. Company sent new sensor and boards. I still had the same problem. My solution was found when I hopped on treadmill with motor cover off. I discovered the motor was turning properly but the belt drive was slipping. The belt was all oily so I cleaned the belt then tightened the motor tension with the adjustment screw. :)

DO NOT STAND ON TREADMILL WALKING BELT!
CALIBRATION
1. Turn off treadmill.
2. Simultaneously press PROGRAM, ENTER, and START/STOP for about 3 seconds.
3. Maximum speed will be shown in the TIME/PACE display followed by an "E" for English units or an "N" for metric
units. Press START/STOP to change from English units to metric units.
4. Press ENTER.
5. Press START/STOP. Incline and speed will calibrate simultaneously.
6. When successfully completed, TIME/PACE display will show CAL PASS.
7. Press POWER. Your treadmill is ready for use

My treadmill runs for 9 secons and stops and shows E1


Ok. So the first thing to try is to calibrate the speed.
You do this by doing the following:
  • With the SAFETY KEY in place, hold the ELEVATION UP and SPEED DOWN buttons for five seconds. The console will beep twice, "ENG0" will appear in the Distance window, and a number will appear in the Elevation window.
  • Press SELECT until "ENG3" appears; this is for Auto-Calibration.
  • Press START to Auto-Calibrate.
  • The treadmill will calibrate minimum and maximum speed, and minimum and maximum elevation. When Auto-Calibration is complete, the treadmill will reset to User's start screen. This process takes three to five minutes.
Make sure there are no errors. . .and that the speed goes from super slow to super fast and then stops. . .. if it stays slow. . or stays fast. .or error code appears during calibration, there is a problem.
If after a good calibration sequence, if it still does the stopping and E-1 after 10 seconds. ., then you need to (Power off and disconnect treadmill). . .then unplug the speed sensor from the lower power board, blow into the connector on the wire, and add a little contact cleaner spray to the connector on the board.
Recap: If it actually runs. . .but stops after a few seconds. . but the calibration runs and passes fine. .. .more than likely it is a speed sensor misread or a faulty speed sensor.

Speeds up and slows down


Dear Sir:

Please adjust the sensor speed for the main motor. Of course I am recommending Very Strong to RUN the software calibration for easy diagnose and troubleshooting.

Dear Sir:
You need to RUN YOUR SOFTWARE CALIBRATION, most of them is coming the instruction below from Hood of motor, follow the step, or use your instr.manual.This is for easy diagnose and troubleshooting.

2) Adjust the sensor speed +tight the wires, see the diagram below.
3) You must Test the main motor for Open+Short Winding.
4)Test the transformer for primary and secondary voltages.
5) See if in power supply you get +5vdc, for digital circuit.
6)Lubricate the deck vs walk belt.

Attached my block diagram for easy diagnose in treadmills

Even while on manual setting the speed automatically goes up and down, how can i fix this? For instance, I set the speed to 2 and it jumps up to 4.2 for a few seconds, goes down to 1.9, back up to 3.xx,...


1. You may have a belt and deck problem. 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 these parts will probably need replacement. 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: a) Set the speed to 2.5 MPH. Let the treadmill run without anyone on the belt. Check to see if the speed is constant or if there is a variation. b) If there is no variation, step on the belt. If the speed slows down or speeds up, you may have an output problem on the DC board. This is the board that connects directly to the motor. 3. You may have a short in the motor. If you turn the machine on and have erratic speed, you could have a problem in the DC board or the motor or both. With a simple multi-meter, you can test on the continuity scale to see if you have a closed circuit between either DC motor lead and the common earth ground. You should always have an open circuit. 4. You may have a speed signal problem. Your controls on the upper panel send a signal to the lower electronics to help them set the appropriate speed. If there is a problem in the signal generator, the communication links, or in the feedback links, you will have erratic speed operation. a) Communications test- Look on the board for a flashing signal as you increase speed on the treadmill. Most boards have a signal feedback test light. If a LED flashes, your communication is ok. b) Feedback test- If your unit is equipped with an optical feedback (disk inside a sensor) you can swap the feedback unit with the incline (it is the same part on many Icon machines). If it tests ok, you don’t have a problem here. If it is a magnetic feedback unit, you can test continuity with a multi meter or replace with a new part to test. Many times passing a kitchen magnet in front of the signal will make a speed display on the console if the magnetic sensor is good.

Belt wont turn.


Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. This should get you into calibration mode. 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. If you cannot get into calibration or if the EPROM test fails then the upper console will have to be replaced.
If you get pass to this point then proceed with the calibrating the incline and speed.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
Be careful the treadmill will run at full speed in the next mode DO NOT STAND ON THE WALKING BELT.Press the Speed Up key and hold it down until 85 is shown in the Distance window (some models may show the 85 number in another window).
If the top speed of the treadmill does not match the displayed speed on the computer console, adjust the max speed potentiometer (pot) on the motor control board. This is the board that the red and black motor wires connect directly into in the motor area. The Max Speed pot is clearly labeled
The max speed potentiometer is a small square with a mobile center and is located in one corner of the board and is labeled MAX SPD. It is near the harness that carries the speed signal labeled H,W,L. Using a small insulated screwdriver adjust this potentiometer clockwise to speed up and counter-clockwise to slow down the max speed of the treadmill. A tiny turn of this potentiometer will make a big difference in speed so be careful when making adjustments.
It is not important to get the speed set exactly at the max speed of the treadmill but do make sure to get the speed within .2 MPH of the max speed of the treadmill. For instance if the max speed of the treadmill is 10 MPH, make sure to have the speed set between 9.8 MPH and 10.2 MPH. Some models have a 12 MPH top speed, so please check your manual if you aren’t sure.
After completing calibration of the speed, press the Speed Down key. The treadmill will automatically return to 0 MPH. Please allow the unit to stop completely before continuing. Press the Stop key once and remove the safety key.

Walking belt slows down to almost a stop when i get on it


I believe under the motor shroud on the circuit board their should be 2 pots 1 adjusts torque 2. adjusts speed try adjusting them and see if that take care of the problem if not. worse case it might be the drive motor.
