Treadmill turns off

My treadmill turns off when you start the speed on it then turns back on, then you try to set a speed and it will just make an effort to pull the band then turns off again
I already replaced the rpm sensors.

Check you Drive Motor : Get a fully-charged, 18 volt (preferred) cordless drill battery and on most treadmills connect the red and black motor leads to the battery If good, the motor should operate at about 1 MPH. Or if you have a extra car battery- these are 12 VDC high amp batteries so the motor will turn slowly but you can walk on the belt. If you have the same problem it could be worn motor brushes.

An LS 6 error on a Bowflex treadmill - I put in a new speed sensor and recalibrated. The tread stops moving but everything else keeps working. I can turn it off for a minute and turn it back on, it will...

Sounds like the speed sensor may be intermittently losing the speed signal. You use a business card slipped between the pulley and the speed sensor to set the gap- push the sensor against the card, then remove the card. That should insure a good speed signal.

Torpedo treadmill e3 I turn on the treadmill, push start, an it counts down. Then E3 flashes in the time area. E3 continues to flash until you turn off the treadmill. Help!

You have to check the speed sensor of the treadmill. May it can be displace or can be dirt accumulated on it or the speed sensor would be faulty.

I have an Ifit treadmill. I was changing speeds and it turned off and won't restart. It beeps when i turn it on but no lights on console.

Power issues with ProForm treadmills fit into two categories: the power does not turn on or the power shuts off when using the treadmill. If the power will not turn on, make sure that the treadmill is plugged into a working power outlet. In addition, you should use a single-outlet surge protector for the treadmill. Single-outlet surge protectors protect the machine from any voltage changes that may occur in your home.

If the machine is plugged into a working outlet, make sure the safety key is in the keyhole on the console. If the safety key is not plugged into the machine or if it is pulled out during operation, the treadmill will not operate.

Finally, make sure the circuit breaker located on the frame near the power cord is set to "Reset." The circuit breaker is set to "Reset" if the top of the button is pushed in. When the breaker is tripped, push it back to the "Reset" position and wait five minutes before powering on the treadmill.

If the ProForm treadmill shuts off during operation, check the power cord and circuit breaker as described above. You can also try removing and reinserting the safety key.
