I have a Norditrack X5I NTL15909.0 and the incline stopped working so I did a calibration and it is stuck in calibrate mode.Every time you turn the power on it tries to calibrate up 2" and down 2"?


You need a new incline motor, The incline sensor is bad. One way to test is to pull the black and red off the MCB and applied 120 volts on the black (up) or Red (down) wire and see the incline motor move. If it does then the MCB is bad

Incline problem


All icon models are the same. The easiest way to incline calibration is to start the treadmill, push the incline up button and then after you release the button, remove the safety key. Replace the safety key and the treadmill should calibrate.
If that doesn't work, press the stop and speed up buttons and hold, then place the safety key in place. This will bring you to the speed/incline calibration. Press stop again. now press incline up. This will run the incline calibration.
You may need to remove the hood and manually with a drill lower the motor. Using a slot screwdriver bit, lower the motor a bout 50 turns and then try the procedure above again if necessary.

Error 7


Incline calibration is necessary when: the display shows ERR7, the drive board incline error LED ( LED5) lights or the incline has extended beyond its normal rangeThe goal of calibration is to synchronize the incline set mechanically and electronically. Mechanical calibration sets the incline motor pipe to the 0% position. This happens when the red line on the thin pipe is even with the end of the thick pipe. Electronic calibration sets the variable resistor (VR) value to the 0% position. This happens when the voltage across the VR blue and green wires is 1.20 VDC.
Readings of VR voltage (blue and green wires) should show around 1.20 VDC at the lowest position and around 3.80 VDC at the highest position. If the VR looses calibration or cannot be set to 1.20 VDC, replace the VR. If the incline motor gets voltage from the drive board but fails to operate, replace the incline motor set. If the incline fuse blows again and again, replace the incline motor set.

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.

When you turn on treadmill the incline goes all the way up and all the way down. Does nothing else.


First we need to do a calibration follow this procedure
Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key.
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.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
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 Call icon Fitness @ 800-999-3756, they may have the sensor or they tell you, you need to replace the incline motor

When I turn on the treadmill, the incline is stuck @ 12degree and the console beeps and I can not control the treadmill at all. What do I need to do?


ICON CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS- INCLINE
1) Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. If this doesn’t work, click on the help topic entitled “Alternate Calibration Codes” for key sequence instructions to enter calibration.
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.

Proform 2500 treadmill stuck in incline position


Under the motor shroud their is a instruction mini manual it will have a how to calibrate the incline motor, if that does not fix it then you may have to manually adjust the incline motor and sometimes it will take awhile to realign . If that does not work replacing the motor maybe the only option

The treadmill will not incline


Try calibrating the unit first, if this does not work than check below:

1. If the incline moves but you 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 and needs to be replaced.

2. If the incline moves but only just a bit, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. 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.

3. 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.

Buttons Froze during workout, now none of them work


It sounds like you just need some calibration. To calibrate incline, turn power on press press any incline buttons, as the incline try to change unplug the key. Now re-nsert key and incline will self calibrate,
