When first starting the treadmill it has a mind of its own. It will start off normally but without warning it will speed up then slow down and have even did a complete stop.

When was the last time you placed the correct lubrication between the walk belt and the walk board. This is a very common issue. Make sure you DO NOT use anything from an aerosol can. The acetone will cause the belt to get dry, hard and crack.

Good luck.

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: Pro-form 320x treadmill slows down then motor stops.

Sounds like it is overheating, you have to disassemble the unit and find why it might be overheating

SOURCE: Nordic Track C2000 starts and then stops.

Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the current over load circuit to activate thus shutting down the unit to prevent further damage, Go to your local hard ware store and purchase silicone spray. Apply Lubricant by lift one side of the running belt spray contents length wise starting at motor shroud to the back end repeat this process on the other side. If this unit shut down again then you will have replace the running belt and possibly the deck

How can I slow down a Sportcraft TX 320 treadmill?


Hi There, hmmm.... am I hearing that the treadmill starts too fast? At over 1mph? Most US treads will start at 1MPH and some will allow selection of .5MPH in the maintenance mode settings maybe. Otherwise, this could be attacked by a technical crew, like jatinah electronics possibly. If the treadmill would be set at one speed only that could be accomplished by reducing the drive signal at the component-level. It is certainly workable, but I would need to know what the current speed is that is too fast for her, and her ideal speed. ;o)

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.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23ZgWaVEQjA

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.
sincerely.

I have a model 297980 J8 proform treadmill. when I first start it up without the safety key in it, the treadmill runs at full speed for about 2 minuets. After that it slows down and stops. The speed is set...


You have to put the safety key in if you want to select speed/incline or predefined programs.
It starts and runs at full speed on that occasion because it's part of the maintenance process, that lubricates the inner rollers so that it will continue to work perfectly for as long as possible.

My treadmill goes at a normal speed when no one is on it. However, As soon as I start walking it slows.


This is normal operation due to putting weight on the belt. Set your final desired speed after you start walking.

My treadmill will go normal speed set at until you start walking on it and then it slow way down. Why would it do that?


Try looking for a problem in the power.if that doesnt work,send it to a technician or if you had a warranty on it even better.
