Question about Life Fitness 9000 Next Generation Treadmill

Lifefitness TR 9000 treadmill - 1997 model

Lifefitness TR 9000 treadmill.

My treadmill keeps coming up with the error - Incline Control Error on the display board when I turn it on. When I press the arrows for the deck to incline, the treadmill makes a noise like the incline motor is working but the deck does not incline or move. The incline display on the console works with up/down arrows but the deck does not move, although the incline motor makes a noise like it's working. What do you think would be the cause for this error to be showing and the incline not working. Please help. Thanks in advance Sue

Because you are hearing the lift motor making a noise, it sounds like the gears in the motor are bad. The fix is to replace the lift motor.

True Treadmill Errors and Service Messages
  • The True 600, 700, 725 and 750 series treadmills are equipped with built-in diagnostics and maintenance reminders that display either an error message or service message as they occur.
  • The error messages that may be displayed by the built-in diagnostics are as follows:
    • E1:INCLINE
      • This means that the incline is moving when it has not been commanded to.
    • E1:MINIMUM
      • This is a minimum incline calibrating error that can be cleared by calibrating the incline.
    • E1:RANGE
      • This means the difference between the treadmills zero position and maximum incline is not sufficient.
    • E1:STALL
      • This means that the incline is not moving when it has been commanded to.
    • E2:OVERSPEED
      • This occurs when acceleration greater than 2.1 mph occurs as this is greater acceleration than anticipated.
    • E2:CAL
      • This means feedback cannot reduce or increase speed to target and error can be cleared by calibrating treadmill.
    • E3:EEPROM
      • This error happens when a data error is detected on the EEprom. The control panel needs replaced if this error occurs.
    • E5:SENSOR
      • This error occurs when there is no speed or RPM feedback detected from speed sensor.
  • The service messages that may be displayed by the built-in maintenance reminders are as follows:
    • S1:LUBE
      • This service message displays when it is time for inspection of the deck lubrication system.
    • S2:CLEAN
      • This service message displays every 500 miles and is your prompt to clean the treadmill.
    • S3:MOTOR
      • This service message displays every 2500 hours and is your prompt to check the motor brushes.

We have Lifefitness 9500HR Treadmill. I am getting a Bad Controller Error. We have two 9500HR models. I swapped out Controller, with working 9500HR and still get Error. Keeps going into Notify Maintenance....


I would suggest swapping the consoles to see if the problem follows. If this does not help you figure it out, you are more than likely looking at a wiring issue.

Hi, our proform 790 tr treadmill is aorund six years old and the walking belt and height motor seem to be going. Is it worth replacing these and is it fairly straightforward?


Changing a walking belt takes about an hour for someone who has done it before. Check the walking deck for scratches, damage as well. Often times if the belt is worn out, the deck needs to be replaced as well. Belts vary in price depending on the make and model of treadmill. Parts can be ordered by calling the number found on the model number sticker on the treadmill. There are 10 different machines with the 790t model name. To get the correct parts find the actual model number (will start with "H"). The parts come with replacement instructions.
Belt $105 Deck $190
As for the incline motor, it is very rare to change that part. It may just require calibration. Start the machine . Press incline up and hold, remove the safety key. Now reinsert the safety key. The machine should rise to full incline then back down to minimum. Once the cycle is complete, the treadmill should work normally. If the incline sensor is defective, the motor will have to be replaced. Incline motor $150.
