Our horizon LS760T treadmill just started making a clicking sound from the motor. It appears to be coming from the sawblade at the end. Looks like it isn't straight and could be bent slightly... would this cause the sound?

Get a flashlight and what you described as a saw blade is the optical wheel.When the motor is turning their is a optical speed sensor that the wheel travels between it. Without starting the unit move the belt manually and see if the wheel is hitting the optic sensor. If it is then usually their two allen screws that hold the wheel in place loosen them and try to center then wheel or gently try to straighten the wheel teeth. Then start the unit up and if the clicking is gone you've fix it.
If the clicking is their then using a flat tip screw driver and touch the ends of the motor with the tip the place your ear on the handle and see if the clicking is coming from either end of the motor, if the clicking is located on either end of the motor could be worn motor brushes replace motor brushes or failure of the bearings replace the motor. If motor is good then proceed to the front roller place the tip on the stationary shaft and listen to each end of the roller if the clicking their replace the front roller.

Unplug the treadmill. Locate the console key and place the safety or reset key into the treadmill console. Replace any parts that need replacing, or is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill.

Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.

Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill.

Step 3:

2_8_2013_11_11_47_am.jpg

Step 4:


he Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration
1.Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)
2.Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).
3.Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.
4.If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.
5.Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
6.Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
7.Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
8.Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
9.Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."
10.Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.
11.Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.
12.Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.
13.When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.
14.Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.
15.If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step.
God bless you

My Horizon T101 treadmill has power coming in from the power outlet but when I plug in the key it does not start. Please help. Is there a battery on the key?


no there isn't, in fact the key is a magnet plate mechanism but you should try attacking the problem by first checking the fuse which is located at the head end of the machine. If that doesn't work then remove the motor cover and get a qualified electrician/technician to check the circuit board for any possible faults.

hope this helps

How do I calibrate my horizon t102. I turn it on and the level motor continues to run, the treadmill motor wont come on. I think it is a level sensor that is bad. Where is that located


The "level sensor" is built into the elevation motor assembly, which is a 10kohm potentiometer. What year treadmill? If the elevation motor assy has a small connector with an orange, blue and brown wire set, you can use an ohm meter to read this pot on these leads. It sounds like a loose cable upper to lower, or possibly a faulty motor control bd which controls the elevation. Unplug tread before looking around..

Horizon Treadmill T5.1. A sudden vibration and


To find a specific bearing that has gone bad in a treadmill you can use a long handled screwdriver and touch it to a non-moving portion of the rollers and then put your ear up to the handle and the screwdriver will amplify the noise of the part so you can find out which part is making the noise. If it is a bearing, it will be obvious which part is the problem because the grinding noise of the bad bearing with be amplified by the screwdriver.
