SOURCE: Treadmil stops or slows down upon walking.

Check both belts to be sure they are adjusted and not slipping.Check the underside of the walk belt to see if it feels frayed in the center as compared to the edges, the center always wears more than the edges a really worn belt must be replaced. if it is nor worn there is a wax lubricant for proform treadmills that can be purchased at retail stores that sell treadmills.Sears, dicks sporting goods and also treadmilldoctor.com are good places to buy it.

SOURCE: the t9500 treadmill will slow down in speed and increase in incline. i unplug it then it will behave for awhile, then it starts doing the slowing down and increase the incline.

1) Test the Speed sensor and adjust the same as intructed in your owner manual 2) Plugin very well the connector and clean. 3)exchange batteries by new one in the display board 4) tight the flexible cord from keypanel vs display board 5) tight the connector from display board vs lower board very well. 6)Now test the main motor if is faulty ( short winding) 7) main motor controllber board is faulty ( test the 115VAC + 5VDc for por supply input coming 8) Power transforner maybe faulty.
See the block diagramm that i Did FOR you kno how the main motor board has aprox 90% of functions of any treadmills. Now you will have strong DIAGNOSTIC, for to measurement the answer Right.

SOURCE: schwinn belt stopped

Dear Sir:
1) You must LUBE the Deck Belt, in according with the instruction manual. The deck maybe is worn.
2) See if the deck belt is in bad condition.
3) Test the drive belt if o.k
4) Test the main motor if running, if not the motor need attention and repair.
5)Test the input voltage for motor coming from the main motor BOARD.
see my personal TIPS for HELP.

sincerely. God bless you

Proform xp 550e had a problem with incline...plastic guide piece was brittle and broke apart....hubby made a new guide piece... Incline & incline motor now works perfectly provided you hot wire it! ...


Hi There, I think the motor control board, or MCB, has a couple of Triacs (Transistor looking things) bolted together on that unit. The lift motor plugs in near them. If one of these Triacs shorts or is damaged, it will act "Live" at the connector, and drive up or down constantly, pinching and/or damaging the lift. There are a few causes of constant elevation in either direction....
1) Up / Down key stuck
2) Bad logic signal from the console(unusual)
3) Pinched or damaged console cable
4) Shorted Triac or failing MCB

You can contact jatinah electronics for repair at 75 for these units. Good Luck!

After recalibration, incline still doesn't work


Some elevation motor has 3 things:
1) Capacitor test it.
2) Limit switch for up and down,
3) Relais for up and down.
You must test it before to replace the complete elevation motor.
4) See if there are 110Vac to the terminal of the motor, if there are the motor is Faulty, If not test the 3 steps mentioned before.

Precor error codes 53


Precor Error 53, Can't Read Target, Can't Find Home Switch Probable Cause 1. Blown F2 fuse.
2. Home switch wiring is damaged or has intermittent connection.
3. Gear (elevation/incline) motor wiring is damaged or has intermittent connection.
4. Home switch is bad.
5. Gear (elevation/incline) motor is bad.
6. Gear (elevation/incline) motor target is damaged.
7. Lower PCA is bad.
Corrective Action
  1. Disconnect power from the unit. Remove the F2 fuse from the lower PCA. Using an ohm meter, measure the fuse for 1 ohm or less. If the reading is considerably high, replace the fuse. If the fuse is blown, inspect further for the cause to avoid the fuse blowing again. Inspect for damaged gear motor wiring or a bad gear (elevation/incline) motor. Replace if necessary.
  2. Thoroughly inspect the home switch wiring for damage or intermittent connections. Repair or replace damaged wiring or poor connections as necessary.
  3. Thoroughly inspect the gear (elevation/incline) motor wiring for damage or intermittent connections. Repair or replace damaged wiring or poor connections as necessary.
  4. Ensure the moving arm is away from the home switch and disconnect power from the unit. Disconnect both wires from the home switch. Using an ohm meter, check for approximately 0 ohms. Continue to monitor the home switch resistance and activate the home switch by hand. The reading should change from approximately 0 ohms to open (infinite). If either reading is considerably incorrect, replace the home switch.
  5. With unit disconnected from power, disconnect both wires from the gear (elevation/incline) motor. Using an ohm meter, check for approximately 9 ohms through the gear (elevation/incline) motor wiring. If the reading is considerably high or low, replace the gear motor.
  6. Inspect the gear (elevation/incline) motor target for rips, tears, or bad scratches. If any of these are found, replace the target.
  7. During the start up sequence, check the voltage at the gear (elevation/incline) motor. Voltage should be approximately 12VDC. The voltage should only be present between the time the sequence was started and the error 53 occurred. If the voltage is considerably low or absent and the F2 fuse proved good, replace the lower PCA.

My incline stopped working a few weeks ago. Now I have another problem, I turn it on and the belt starts then stops.


The motor controller weakens over time because of the excessive amperage draw of the motor do to lack of lubrication (which wears the walk belt and walking deck).

Take an amperage reading of the motor it should be 2-3 amps with no one on it, with someone walking on it it should be around 6-12 amps. I would bet yours is elevated above 6-12 amps.The controller is dropping output because of the friction problem.

The first thing to try after testing the amperage is to lubricate the walking platform. Then retest and see if the amperage comes down and it doesn't shut off.

If it does then the next step would be to replace the walking deck. If the amperage still is up you may need to replace the walk belt second and finally if after replacing the deck and belt, if the unit is still shutting down replace the motor controller.

I have a NordicTrack EXP 1000 X. Just bought it froma guy on craigslist, and it was working fine at his house. Messed with the belt tensioner bolts a bit when I brought it home, and now when I walk/run on...


It sounds like the belt is bogging down, this condition is when the treadmill operates normally without a person on the belt and then slows down when someone steps on the belt or when the treadmill operates normally for a given period of time with someone on the belt then abruptly begins to slow down.
The only certain way to test for a worn walking belt is to take a DC amp draw . Trying to look at the belt or a feel test is highly unreliable. Better tests, if you lack a DC ammeter (they are expensive for a good one), are a coast test or an incline test.
The coast test is to get on the treadmill as the lowest incline setting and walk on the treadmill at 3 MPH. Pull the safety key and it should take you 2-3 full steps to stop fewer steps indicate high friction.
The incline test is to put the treadmill at max incline and walk on it at 3 MPH. If the treadmill operates normally at max incline but bogs down at minimum incline, replace the walking belt. Gravity takes over for the drive system eliminating much of the friction problem. On some heavily worn walking belts, this test will not eliminate the problem.

Appears the incline motor is grinding when key inserted


Let the incline motor cycle. It is recalibrating. The incline will go all the way up then all the way down then double beep and reset. Your console lights should return to normal. The unit got a voltage surge and knock it out of calibration.
