Hi There, No "rumble" sounds from the motor? All seems normal but won't calibrate? Is there a speed sensor mounted to the rear of that AC motor? Little black box looking thing that watches an encoder wheel to measure speeds? If so, Matrix had a sensor mounted here for a few years on AC driven treads, with 3 wires coming from it and plugs into that lower board. If the large "slots" in that encoder wheel get dust in them, the controller will loose speed feedback pulses required for regulation. If that is all clean, you may not believe this, but there was a period of maybe 8 months where inside that little black box, one of those 3 wires were not soldered correctly and is loose, touching a nearby wire inside, or open all together, causing that controller to miss feedback pulses. That sensor must be viable to calibrate that machine. If you power off, then pull that speed sensor from the main lower board, power back up, the lower unit will default to no-feedback(open-loop mode) mode and may run very near normal speeds. Power down and re-install that wire and does the tread work normally when not calibrating? Lastly, if the unit has had a lot of use, that lower board could have degraded capacitors on it that decay over time and become a bit lazy, not allowing enough drive current for the motor to calibrate at high speeds, and failing the cal routine? Is that lower maybe marked ASM-ACD3x or similar?You can email me at jatinahATrocketmailDOTcom for more help if needed. Good Luck!

SOURCE: I have recently installed treadmill motor brushes but now treadmill is not calibrating,calibration takes start and when calibration comes to check the slow speed it stuck there and keep calibrating it

Hi There, Please check that you have the small feedback connectors snug and proper. Some treads have them on a front or rear roller and some also have a motor feedback. Or - Try to power down and back up and try to run treadmill normally, not in cal mode, and see if the unit responds to your speed selections correctly. During "calibrations" the upper board (usually) is looking for a specific feedback signal, if it cannot be found it usually stops the tread, but in cal mode it may sit there waiting for it's feedback sweet-spot before continuing. What make, year and model of tread?

Treadmills are shutting down after persons are running on machine. The power is tripping, shutting down. After break or machine is turn on it works again


Chances are the treadmill started by shutting off in the middle of a workout and has gradually gotten to the point that it will not run long, or turn on at all, in some cases. This is most likely caused from a worn deck and belt. If the belt and deck is not routinely waxed, it wears down and causes friction. This friction builds up heat which can fry your electronics. The machines circuit breaker shuts the machine down to protect the major electronic components. This protective measure, built in by the manufacturer, will only help for so long. After a few times of shutting down due to the heat, it actually does damage to the electronics. The result and correction usually ends up being a new deck, a new running belt, and in most cases that have gone on too long, the motor control board.

My new visions t9550 treadmill will not calibrate. it completes the speed calibration but treadmill will not elivate therefor fails calibration. what do i do?


Step 1:

follow this steps for troubleshooting and fix it. God bless you

The SCR lower board is designed with diagnostic LED lights. The LED's are color coded according to

their specific function. Green indicates a properly operating treadmill; the green lights should always

be ON when power is supplied to the treadmill. Yellow indicates a treadmill function. Red indicates a

treadmill malfunction. Here is a list of each LED and what it signifies:

MOTOR (yellow) - The MOTOR LED illuminates when dc (direct current) voltage is sent to the drive

motor. The LED gets brighter when the dc output is increased.

RLC (yellow) - The RLC (R = Reactance / L = Inductance / C = Capacitance) LED illuminates when

the filtering system is properly working. The filtering system includes the capacitor and filter choke. If

there is a short in either component then the RLC light will not come on.

DN & UP (yellow) - The DN and UP LED lights tell us if the elevation DN and UP relays are

functioning properly. When the LED lights, it tells us that the relay has energized and is sending high

voltage (110vac or 220vac) to the elevation motor.

AC PWR (green) - The AC PWR (Alternating Current Power) illuminates when AC line voltage is

delivered to the treadmill. It then passes through the in-line fuse (110)/s(220) and lights the AC PWR

LED.

+12V (green) - When the proper AC voltage is delivered to the treadmill, passes through the in-line

fuse/s, through the full wave bridge rectifier (changes AC to DC), through the transformer (steps down

Step 2:

DC to +12vdc) then the +12V LED lights.
This the board LED, who control the signal for Main Motor+Elevation Motor. You must see, the LED DN+ UP( both will be Lit) in any position down or Up.

2) The RELAY board is designed with diagnostic LED lights. The LED's are color coded according to

their specific function. Green indicates a properly operating treadmill; the green lights should always

be ON when power is supplied to the treadmill. Yellow indicates a treadmill function. Red indicates a

treadmill malfunction. Here is a list of each LED and what it signifies:

AC PWR (green) - The AC PWR (Alternating Current Power) illuminates when AC line voltage is

delivered to the treadmill. It then passes through the in-line fuse (110)/s(220) and lights the AC PWR

LED.

VDC (green) - The VDC LED will light when it receives DC voltage from the DC power supply.

DN & UP (yellow) - The DN and UP LED lights tell us if the elevation DN and UP relays are

functioning properly. When the LED lights, it tells us that the relay has energized and is sending high

voltage (110vac or 220vac) to the elevation motor.

UPSW (green) - This LED will illuminate when the low voltage dc is delivered from the upper display

board to the elevation UP relay. This low voltage dc is what energizes the coil of the relay.

DNSW (green) - This LED will illuminate when the low voltage dc is delivered from the upper display

board to the elevation DOWN relay. This low voltage dc is what energizes the coil of the relay.

BELTSW (green) - This LED will illuminate when the low voltage dc is delivered from the upper

display board to the belt (motor start) relay. This low voltage dc is what energizes the coil of the relay.

SPD (yellow) - The SPD LED flashes on and off (relative to speed) when the speed sensor is

operating properly.

PWM (yellow) - This LED will light when the upper board is sending a speed signal to the PWM.

Both the PWM LED and BELTSW LED must be lit for belt movement.
Finally this this Relay Board, the Each Led will be Lit, for any Relai control for DN down, or UP for elevation Motor. You must clean contact of the Relay with Special Spray(Radio Schack).

With this you must fix it.

Step 3:

Try this again. and fix it.b) LUBE the gear motor, shaft and turn the POT a little and see if the motor get RPM.

The Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration:

  1. Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)

  2. Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).

  3. Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.

  4. If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.

  5. Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  6. Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  7. Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  8. Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  9. Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."

  10. Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.

  11. Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.

  12. Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.

  13. When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.

  14. Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.

  15. If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in).

Elevation Will NOT go down after the elevation calibration


Unplug unit and remove motor shroud if you are savvy with a multi meter then try these trouble shooting procedure:
Perform and elevation calibration again, On the display, can you see numbers counting down and up and the treadmill is going up and down? If yes then the unit will proceed to work, if no when power is on, check on the lower board, on connector J5, do we have 5V DC between pin 1 & 3? If yes During Calibration, J5, between Pin 5 & 6, on the lower board, do we have 120V AC when treadmill is going up?
If Yes During Calibration, J5, between Pin 4 & 6, on the lower board, do we have 120V AC when treadmill is going up?
If Yes During Calibration, J5, between Pin 2 & 3, on the lower board, do we have DC voltage varying from 1.15 to 3.00? If any of the above is no then then the lower board will need replacing if all is yes then elevation motor needs replacing.

The incline on my proform treadmill is not working and now I can't get the treadmill to start, it just keeps inclining up and down


ICON CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS- INCLINE
1) Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key.
2) 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.
3) Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
4) THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP BECAUSE YOU WILL GET AN ERROR MESSAGE IF THIS STEP IS SKIPPED.After completing calibration of incline, press the Stop key and then remove the safety key.



If the incline moves but you it will not operate normally nor calibrate, check the wiring from the incline sensor to the power board. If all looks normal, put it back in calibration and see if you see a blinking “- -” symbol in the incline window when you are calibrating. If not, the incline sensor is bad.

If the incline moves but only just a bit, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. We remove the motor from the treadmill, reconnect the wiring, and then try to run the incline motor outside the treadmill. Many times, this will unjam it if that is the problem and then reinstalling it in the treadmill will get it to work. If you have the same problem or it doesn’t run outside the machine and you can hear it try to work, you need to replace the incline motor.

If the incline motor does not move, we need to figure out if the motor is getting voltage. Use a simple multi-meter and set it to AC volts. When you put it into calibration, it tries to calibrate the directions one at a time. Measure across the white and black wires first, then measure across the white and red wires second. If the motor is getting voltage you will read 120VAC (or
thereabouts) one one of the measurements. If you have voltage but the motor won't move, you need to replace the motor.
4.
If the incline motor does not move and you have done the voltage test and you do not have any voltage present, there is a problem in the electronics board that supplies the power. If the console is powering the drive motor as normal, you can bet it is getting an incline signal and the power board needs to be replaced (some models have an integrated power board/controller) so if there is only a single board the whole board has to be replaced. It is possible the console is not giving the proper signal but we've never seen it happen in thousands of treadmills.
