Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the current over load circuit to activate thus shutting down the unit to prevent further damage, Go to your local hard ware store and purchase silicone spray. Apply Lubricant by lift one side of the running belt spray contents length wise starting at motor shroud to the back end repeat this process on the other side. If this unit shut down again then you will have replace the running belt and possibly the deck.

My Horizon T80 treadmill is emitting a smell after operating a while not an electric smell but a rubber chemical smell


How old is the walking belt? When was it last replaced? How many miles are on the belt. Seem like your belt and deck is worn.

I have a roger black treadmill the belt stops working after 5 - 6 minutes, the display still continues counting as normal, I have to wait for acouple of hours to start it again to last for 5 mins. please...


1) this a problem by lack of LUBE maintenance, you must LUBE about 5 hours continuosly of use. Otherwise you may have a worn DECK BELT, and time to replace. By that reason the treadmill shut down, to due the software has protection itself for electronic system
2) LUBE the rollers bearing.
3) test the bearing from the main motor, and replace too.
God bless you

I have a vision T9500 treadmill. My husband was recalibrating and it got stuck in the highest position and is displaying E5 in the window. Any ideas how to get it down?


hi,
Try AUTO-CALIBRATION first. For that do the following.

With the safety key in place, turn the treadmill ON . Press and hold SELECT. Now you can perform auto-calibration by pressing START.

(The treadmill will run through minimum and maximum speed and elevation. This will take 3 to 5 minutes. Let the treadmill perform this complete function. "END" will appear when auto-calibration is complete. When auto-calibration is complete, it will take about 30 seconds for the treadmill to reboot and return to the start-up screen)


If it doesn't help then the motor control module is faulty. You have to replace or repair the motor control module.

OK

I have the Lifecore Fitness T900HR treadmill and when my husband is running it stops. We have made sure all the connections are tight even the safety key but it still stops. When I am using the treadmill...


Their might be high friction between the belt and deck thus causing the error 1 code when your husband is on it. Try lubricating the area between belt and deck using silicone lubricant ( refer to owners manual). Then the lighter of the two "aka wife" walk on the treadmill for about 5 to 10 minutes.
This should take care of the problem if not then their is an issue with the belt and deck ( 85% of problems on treadmills are belt and deck related)

Treadmill powers off when pressing Incline Increase "br 1" error


You may have a beltand deck problem. Test by the following procedure:
without the poweron stand on the walking belt, push the belt in the, direction it normally turns. If the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill this means that you have high belt/deck friction I first apply silicone lubricant between the belt & deck to see if that clears up the problem. Most problems originate from the belt and deck 75 to 85% of the time

Kettler treadmill "silikon wartung"


Hi eirik,

Your treadmill needs lubricating.
Get a an aerosol with silicone lubricant and spray it under the belt & on top of the ground board.
Then turn the belt by hand (treadmill switched off!) until you've lubricated the whole belt.
Next leave the machine running for 5 minutes at 5 KM/H (3 M/H) without any load on it.

That should do the trick.
