Check it all over make sure there is no buildup of dust or dirt anywhere just give it a good cleanup and then try it out.

    you could oil it up before use but i would try it first it will soon let you know if it needs it.

    just seen what you said,,oil the belt? dont put oil near the belt or it will start slipping..oil the running gear not the belt.

    or you could put a little grease on the running gear not anything on the belt.

Why my treadmils start working and and stops

Hi There, sorry to hear of your troubles. Could you mention what brand and model of treadmill? If this is a Horizon treadmill with E1 error, like models T101 and others from the years 2011-2013, there is one thing you can try. Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor cover to get to the Motor Control Board, or MCB. Be certain the treadmill is unplugged from the wall! Now, look on the MCB on the right side there may be ONE small blue "block" with a tiny screwdriver slot in the center, this is called a potentiometer, and if there is Only One, and a Horizon MCB, you can turn this pot to the right, clockwise, gently until it stops, and then back it off just a hair, reassemble unit, and try treadmill. If this doesn't help, the MCB most likely needs servicing due to failing storage capacitors which get quite hot while in use and can degrade over a few years of service. You can find some help by looking up jatinah electronics, who repairs these modules. Good Luck! ;o)

I have a Nordic track EXP 1000 the only keys that work are the start button and 1 mph. Other than that nothing else works. Not sure if it is the controller or the council. Any suggestions?

I had the problem years ago and I contacted NorcTrack and their solution was to replace the entire console for about $400. They wouldn't replace the pads or anything else, all they would do is sell me the new console. That was not going to happen since I had only had the thing for about 5 years at the time. I wasn't going to be putting that kind of money into that treadmill every 5 years or so.

I tried many things and I finally decided to buy a new console pad from the Treadmill Doctor. I think it was around $100. It was easy to replace. I just removed the screws holding the console cover in place, unplugged the wires leading to the lower console pad and pulled it off. The new pad fit exactly into the space the old pad occupied, I plugged it in and it worked. It's still working about 6 years later. I use this treadmill daily without any problems. It's not anywhere near as nice as the new units I see out there today, but it does what it's supposed to do and that's all I need.

The Treadmill Doctor has all the parts you need for this machine at a reasonable price. Much cheaper than Nordic Track.

How i unfold it?

There is allot of weight on the "Storage Latch". You may need to push forward on the treadmill a bit, pull the black knob, then slowly let the machine unfold. Taking the weight off the "Storage Latch" will make it easier to release the latch..

After storage treadmill belt wont' turn

Hello. A year without use often causes the belt to adhere to the front and rear drum. Pry the belt loose and toss some talcum powder in there to get it going again. Joe
