open motor shroud and inspect all connection on the motor control board see if all LED 's are lit except that light up when incline motor is moving up or down. then check the two connector coming from the drive motor to the board sometime over time the two connector will have a cold soldier I would move them to see any excessive movements of the pins then hit start and see if there is any belt movement. Last but not least unplug unit and check the motor brushes if they are less than 3/8 in in length replace them. Call them @ 1-800-335-4348 they under their parent corp. Johnson fitness.

Because you are hearing the lift motor making a noise, it sounds like the gears in the motor are bad. The fix is to replace the lift motor.

I had the same problem-only one of my programs would work, and the rest of the buttons (even start) would not work. I used some scissors and carefully cut about a 1/2 inch in the plastic inbetween each of the copper strips in the ribbon cable. Then I seated each one individually (put them back in the white plastic thing) until I found the one that was freezing all of the other buttons up. Now all of my buttons EXCEPT for the one that was working before work. I can live without 1 program if it saves me $300
PS-mine also stopped working after we moved it, but when I told an "expert" that he said it wouldn't just stop working because I moved it....I think moving it DEFINATELY had something to do with it.

SOURCE: carol lewis mot566 error code 03
1)probably a faulty speed sensor
2) speed sensor is not plugged in properly.
3)possibly a faulty motor
4) Main control board or lower board.
The error codes will differ between makes and models but could be e1.
Check this video for speed sensor.
adjust the speed sensor:Move the motor to slacken the pulley, then lift the motor to get underneath. That is where the treadmills speed sensor will be located. It is usually a square or rectangular shaped green module with connectors at both ends.
Finally after you did the adjustment you can conclude:
A) Faulty Speed sensor B) Main Motor faulty C) Main Motor Controller faulty.
attached block diagram for treadmill that I did for any treadmills,see how the Main Motor Board has function for 90% of the treadmills.

1) This error code has 2 options
a) Elevation Motor: a) lube the gear and shaft b) adjust the potentiomenter c) test the motor see my personal tips for help.
2) Display board: a) adjust the reed swithc , see the diagram attached, clean, tight the wires connector very well.
After you did the adjustment RUN the software calibration for diagnose and troubleshooting.
God bless you

Testimonial: "I cannot find my manual on the site :-( I have the original manual but this type of information is not displayed. I am not sure how to adjust the 'elevation motor' ? I still cannot see the magnet/reed switch on either the motor pulley or the front roller - are you sure all treadmills have these and might it not be built into the actual motor? The link to your "personal tips" does not take me to the correct page?"
