Question about Sole Fitness Sole F63 Treadmill
We had an electrician run a dedicated 20a breaker for the treadmill. The panel breaker still trips.

By dedicated breaker, do you mean a dedicated line with It's own breaker? If it is a gym quality unit then call the same electrician back in to explain his work. With a dedicated line the breaker should not be tripping.

Based on your description of the problem, I came up with a theory. Your new dryer is of higher wattage than your old one and is therefore pulling more amperage. I'd also make a bet that your dual breaker in the basement has the number "30" printed on it. Whether it does or not, your breaker should be replaced.
NOTE---> Ideally, you'd begin by removing the breakers (there are 2 of them) from the panel and take them with you to Lowe's, Home Depot or Ace Hardware and ask one of the sales associates for a 40 amp version. This way, you'd be sure to get the right ones. If you don't want to do that, then open up the breaker box and copy all the information off of the dryer breaker (also take not of how wide it is... 1/2", 3/4", etc...). Basically you'll need who made it (Square D, G.E., etc...) and how wide it is. Use this info to shop for a 40 amp version.
I don't need to tell you that working inside a breaker box can be EXTREMELY DANGEROUS if you are not careful. Here is a picture of the inside of the box, NOTICE THE LUGS AT THE TOP! THEY ARE ALWAYS "HOT" AND SHOULD NEVER BE TOUCHED!!!!!
Before you remove the panel to access the interior of the box, TURN OFF YOUR "MAIN BREAKER" (it's shown in the picture above).
Now that all of the safety stuff is covered, all you gotta do is pull the bad breaker out and install the new one! Piece of cake, really. Here's a video on how it's done.There ya go! If this has been helpful for you, please remember to rate this solution. Thanks for using FixYa!

The motor may be repairable. Check with local electric motor repair shops in your area. The motor may need to be replaced though and if so, we sell it at www.arrowmotor.net

It's possible that the first breaker that you said does not trip - it could be that breaker is failing to trip on a bad circuit. That is, it could be you have a bad circuit but that first breaker is not detecting it and pretends everything is OK. If your new breaker trips on the first breaker's circuit, the curcuit it probably bad and the breaker in not working properly. The most common problem for failed circuits is a stray ground wire in a box somewhere in the curcuit resting against a hot or neutral wire. You'll have to take apart every connection on that curcuit to find it. Not fun.

You have something along the line that is grounding. One of your wires is going to the wrong place. If you have it wired for 220 v, you have 3 wires going in, or 4, one will be ground, one will be neutral, and 2 will be hot. The connector at the motor should say line 1, line 2, white wire to neutral, and the ground possibly outside. If it is 110 v, it will have only 1 hot wire going in. If it is on a gfi breaker, then it has to be right or it will never stop tripping. The slightest thing wrong and it trips. If it still trips after all that, try it at 110 v and see what happens, It might be the motor at fault.
