SOURCE: Nordictrack Commercial 1500 treadmill w/working display BUT unresponsive buttons

Sounds like a cable harness is undone. The cable feeding the panel which has the computer inside (the power feed) is connected, but the cable from the panel back to the motorized parts isn't. The breakaway is a separate circuit that cuts all power to everything. These are my assumptions (I'm not a nordic track expert), but it's a pretty safe bet, likely the connector in the bottom section. Okay, I just looked it up, first Google "nordictrack 1500 manual" one of the first links is a PDF, with a complete parts breakdown. Depending on your specific model, it looks like there is a connector under the top panel where it meets the right post (and a couple of screws will let you lift it up to check it). It may be partially unplugged, check that first since it looks pretty easy to check.
But I think it's going to be in the bottom, in the bottom of the treadmill the wiring splits to different sections. The motor/incline controller cable (a separate cable #106 on one model I looked up, something like NTL09707 or similar) is probably the one that is either broken or unplugged. So although the computer (up top) is sending signals, they aren't reaching where they need to. Anyway, get that manual, and someone handy with screwdrivers and technology, and they should have it figured out quickly.

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!

Why won't incline go up or down?


Calibrating Your Incline Is your incline not operating correctly? There are a few simple steps that can be followed which will most likely resolve that problem for you.
9bvipvsqvatex9kgfcnn03s5zhvtng9too4023mrox7s22mjjuue73rxrrhupctrxro022nhu0i53bbtrxqocdrxro402hhw0410bbbtxqkad79poo41hbe1410ybbtwq+p8byj8qzuzzwaoaaaaasuvork5cyii=
The first step is to press and hold both the STOP and SPEED INCREASE buttons, this will be either an UP ARROW or a + (plus) symbol. While holding these two buttons down you will need to insert your safety key.
Once you have inserted the safety key you can release the buttons and let go of the key. At this point you will need to press the STOP button one time. Congratulations, you are now in Calibration Mode.
Now that we are in calibration, press the INCLINE UP button one time. This will cause the platform to go all the way up and then it will come all the way back down again.
Now that the incline has stopped moving you can remove the safety key.

Treadmill keeps inclining and declining . It won't stop!


I have a Proform ZT5 model - had the same incline/decline problem. It needed calibrated.
- unplug, turn off, and take the key out
- plug machine in
- turn switch on
- Pres and hold the STOP and SPEED UP button at the same time, while holding them insert the RED KEY
- let go of both buttons
- press STOP 1 time
- pres INCLINE UP 1 time
- this should reset it.

The tech on the phone mentioned the importance of turning the maching off, taking the key out, and unplugging after each use. Leaving it plugged in there is still an electrical current running and this can cause more seriouc problems that require a new control panel.

No existing problem. what is proper lubrication for pm maintenance? any other check points?


.5 oz of Icon lubricant(can be purchased on ebay cheapest) applied to deck. Adjust the walkbelt, check drive belt tension, check amperage on motor no load and under load, calibrate the speed and incline. You can calibrate your treadmill by doing the following:
let's try to calibrate the speed

1. With the key off press the speed + and stop buttons at the same time and hold
2. place the key on and release the buttons
3. press the stop key once
4. press the speed up til it reaches 85
5. if your max speed is 10 mph then it should read about 9.8-10.2
6. If it is over or under we will need to adjust the speed potentiometer on the motor controller
7. to do this remove the motor hood and find the electronic board.
8. there will be a round adjustable pot on the board that you can place a small screwdriver in to adjust.
9. depending on if you need it to speed up or slow down is the direction you will need to turn it.
10. the goal is to get it to be about .1-.2 mph more then the max speed of the treadmill.
11. As long as it is in the range above it is performing ok.

now to calibrate the incline:
1. remove safety key
2. press and hold the speed+ and stop keys at the same time
3. Put the safety key in/on and release the keys
4. press stop once
5. hit the incline + arrow and let the incline go the whole way up and down

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.
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.

Proform 740CS runs okay but the incline does not


ProForm Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits. It worked for mine just 10 minutes ago; the procedure is in the manual if you have it. Good luck!

Ifit treadmill will not incline but everything else works, how do I fix the incline


You may need to calibrate the incline. Do this with the following procedure.
Safety key out
press the stop and speed up buttons at the same time while inserting the safety key. (you are now in diagnostics)
press the stop button one time only.
now press the incline up button (incline motor should start moving up)
incline will go up to the top and then all the way to the bottom. when it gets done you can remove the key. Reinsert the key and you should be operating normally.
Good luck Tim

Pro-Form Sport 1000 treadmill does not stop inclining


Do a Calibration on the treadmill. Take out the safety key. With 2 fingers, hold down the stop button and the speed up or spped plus button. keep holding them down as you insert the safety key, then let go of both.
Press the stop button 1 time, you should see all 0's in the windows, or EP 2P or something weird like that.
Press the Incline up button and then wait. If the incline go up until it stalls then down until it stalls the stops at the bottom, the you are recalibrated, take out the safery key and put it back in to see if all is well. If the incline takes off up again without touching a button, the you have wiring problems or control problems. Call service company to get it repaired.
