Question about Exercise & Fitness
I bought this treadmill 2nd hand. The seller said it needed a new board. At the time I googled treadmill boards and since it cost anything from $50 - $200, I thought $200 was a reasonable price to pay for a motorised treadmill. EXCEPT, I had no idea it would be THIS difficult to find someone to a) supply the board I supposedly need and b) someone who will fit it!? I don't know, maybe it doesn't need a new board. Would anyone know? Originally, it would speed up and double the speed you're doing and after a while it would come up with ''E0'' on the console. When I turned the machine off and then started it up again it would clear and all would be right again. It did this for a couple of weeks, but now it just shuts down - you might be a couple mins into your walk or 20mins! And it won't start again, except after a long (like a day or 2) break and then it would just shut down again.
There is a post on FixYa by ''tilliscream'' (get it? 'till I scream?? - I don't blame them!!) who had similar problems with their Genki treadmill. ''dytbb'' posted a possible solution. I visited spiritfitness site and called them. They couldn't help. They are not an importer or distributor of these treadmills and they don't know who is. I would hassard a guess that 'tilliscream' didn't find their solution here.... but I live in hope and who knows!, maybe enough time has passed that maaaybe someone out there knows either how to fix this or can supply the board - maybe even install it???.
Many thanks in advance to the person who might be able to help me fix my Genki treadmill.

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!!

You have a wire harness that attaches the upper board to the lower board. You may have to pull that harness thru the uprights ( Attach a fishing line so you can either pull a new harness thru or the original one ) and inspect it for snags crimps or broken wires also use a meter to a continuity check on the harness ends. Since the the command signals travel thru this harness also check all connections on the lower board. Its starting point

SOURCE: shuts down when in use.
This sounds like a static electricity problem.
First, check your outlet for a proper ground connection.
Be sure that the ground pin on the plug has not been removed.
Depending on the model, a number of machines came with connecting clips to ensure that the upper console was grounded. They were installed during the time of assembly between the frame and console. Check your manual assembly instructions to see if yours is one of these, and check to be sure they have been installed.

Testimonial: "Not only the grounding screw was loose but also the surge protector that the treadmill was plugged into had been damaged by the loose connection."
