We also have a Spirit SR 918. It may be the lower or upper boards powering the motor that malfunctioned.

We need a particular part replaced on it, other than those boards, so if you still have not trashed the unit, have replaced it, or are thinking about disposing of the unit, we will pick it up. We are in Chicago, as well.

It will cost us between $125 to $499 to replace our treadmill, but it is so heavy duty, that it comes down to finding the parts, since additional labor will come out even.

Precor 9,31 treadmill tripping internal breaker


You may want to check how many outlets or other items that you have on the breaker. When those treadmills go faster, they draw a lot of amperage. Not much that you can do except for unplugging what you aren't using on that circuit until you are done. If you run an extension cord to another circuit, that draws even more amperage or hire an electrician to install a larger breaker for you.

Treadmill runs 5 minutes stops


There could be other possibilities causing the treadmill to stop but one of the most common issues is excessive wear on the belt/deck.

When a running belt has excessive wear, it creates a lot of friction which causes the drive motor to work harder. When the drive motor works harder it will start overheating. If the belt is not lubricated periodically, it will ruin the deck, the drive motor, and cause other electrical problems such as tripping the breaker [after a while, the circuit breaker on the treadmill will need to be replaced.

It is suggested to lubricate the belt every month. At this point, you may need to replace both your deck and your running belt

Consol on nordictrack T9.1 has error code 58 when I switch it on then it goes in to a loop of the preset programs but you can't select them


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Step 1

Plug the power cord into a UL 1449 single-outlet surge suppressor and then plug the surge suppressor into an electrical outlet that is not GFCI-equipped if the power does not turn on. If the treadmill is plugged in and the power still does not work, make sure the key is in the console and that the Reset/Off circuit breaker has not been tripped. Press the switch to "Reset" if it has been tripped.

Step 2

Check the Reset/Off circuit breaker if the power switches off while in use. Wait five minutes and switch the button to reset. Check that the power cord is still plugged in securely; pull the plug out and plug it back in after five minutes. Pull out the console key and reinsert to see if the machine will turn back on.

Step 3

Place the chest pulse sensor tightly right underneath your pectoral muscles or breasts for it to operate properly. Position it lower or higher on your chest if it does not work properly. Wet the electrodes with a saline solution. Walk near the walking belt's center within an arm's reach of the console.

Step 4

Remove the console key and unplug the treadmill to loosen the walking belt if it slows when in use. Turn the rear roller bolts counterclockwise with the hex key 1/4 of a turn until you can lift the walking belt's edges 3 to 4 inches from the platform.

Step 5

Remove the key and unplug the treadmill to adjust the walking belt if it is off-center or slips when in use. Loosen the rear roller bolts with the hex key and reposition the walking belt. Tighten the roller bolts. Walk on the treadmill to determine if the walking belt is centered. If not, loosen the roller bolts again and make adjustments until the walking belt is centered.

Step 6

Recalibrate the incline system if the treadmill's incline does not adjust correctly. Press the "Incline" button and remove the console key. Wait a few seconds and replace the console key. The incline will automatically recalibrate by moving to the maximum incline level and then the minimum level.

Step 7

Press the "Stop" button for a few seconds to turn off the demo mode if the console display stays lit after you remove the console key.

Check your Amps on the circuit that is being tripped. The treadmill needs 15 Amps to run. If you have a 15 Amp circuit that is running the treadmill and other electronics (or lights), the circuit will trip. You may need to replace the circuit with more Amps.

My treadmill runs for 15 minutes than stops for a minute than start up for 10 minutes than stops, than start up


It is designed to be able to be restarted after about 5 minutes. When it stops, wait 5 to 10 minutes, reset the circuit breaker. Of course you still have the same problem.

The motor contoller board is most likely overheating do to friction, so you're going to need to lubricate the walking belt(this should actually be done every 6 months) you can order a kit on ebay for about 15-20 bucks, it's called " lube n walk ", and no, I don't sell it, but I use it on the treadmills I service.

I recomend you loosen the belt one full turn on each side before you lube the belt, apply the lube and run the treaadmill for one mile without anyone on it and then let it rest for a while.

After that give it a try. if the belt slips, then tighten it back up one turn, but don't over tighten it.

I also recomend using a single outlet surge supressor.

That should solve your problem.
