SOURCE: Pro-Form Sport 1000 treadmill does not stop inclining

Do a Calibration on the treadmill. Take out the safety key. With 2 fingers, hold down the stop button and the speed up or spped plus button. keep holding them down as you insert the safety key, then let go of both.
Press the stop button 1 time, you should see all 0's in the windows, or EP 2P or something weird like that.
Press the Incline up button and then wait. If the incline go up until it stalls then down until it stalls the stops at the bottom, the you are recalibrated, take out the safery key and put it back in to see if all is well. If the incline takes off up again without touching a button, the you have wiring problems or control problems. Call service company to get it repaired.

SOURCE: Nordictrack motor will not run when start button is pushed.

Likely the cover of one of the motor brushes popped off. Unplug the machine before you pop it back in place, then try it again.

If that doesn't work, most likely it's the motor control board, or possibly the console, or finally just a loose connection behind the console.

But most likely, it's the motor brush cover. I've been seeing that alot with this model.

SOURCE: Treadmill incline error

Try this, it fixed it for me, if it doesn't work let me know

I bought a used Precor 9.4 treadmill, but the incline adjustment was not working.
So, I did the following.
1. Turn off, unplug the treadmill and wait for an hour (this is for safety
2. Remove the black motor cover
3. Observe the transformer to the right of the motor and towards the belt ( I point to it in the video)
This transformer converts DC electricity to AC electricity and the AC current goes directly to the Incline motor which is in the black box towards the front of the machine.
4. On mine the wires had come loose from the transformer, they were soldered on very poorly, the wires are stiff and you should be able to see 4 wires coming from the top of the circuit board and plugging into the transformer, I had three of the 4 wires loose.
5. If you are not comfortable working with electronics or soldering DO NOT DO THIS REPAIR, you could get shocked very badly if you just go poking around in there with metal objects, get a friend who knows how to solder or hire someone.

6. It took about 5 minutes I just heated up my $10 soldering gun from radio shack and soldered all the loose wires that were about a millimeter away from the tabs on the back of the transformer, and VOILA! The incline now works!

Sound like a speed sensor adjustment here the steps for this procedure:
1. Unplug unit then remove the plastic motor cover. There are either 4 or 5 screws holding the cover in place depending on the model.
2. Locate the speed sensor between the front roller pulley and the frame of the treadmill. It is a small plastic piece approx 1 1/4” long and 1/4” in diameter with a black wire coming from the back of it leading to the electronic board in the motor compartment .
3. Locate the magnets mounted in the face of the pulley. (approx. 3/8” in diameter) 4. The end of the sensor should be positioned approximately 1/8” from the magnet at the closest point.
5. Follow the wire from the sensor to the control board. Make sure the connection is pressed firmly down on the board.

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.

  • Place a mat under your treadmill. You can buy a treadmill mat at any sporting goods store and most major discount stores such as Wal-Mart or Target. Treadmill mats are made of heavy-duty rubber or foam and are specifically designed to absorb the vibrations caused by the everyday use of a treadmill. Treadmill mats greatly reduce the noise caused when a person runs on a treadmill, and are especially helpful if you live in an apartment and have neighbors immediately below you.
  • 2 Tighten or replace the belt on your treadmill. A loose or worn belt will cause your treadmill to vibrate excessively. You can buy replacement belts at many sporting goods outlets or directly from your treadmill's manufacturer. Refer to your user's guide for instructions regarding how to tighten or replace the belt, as well as the size and type of replacement belt required by your treadmill.
  • 3 Secure all ancillary parts of your treadmill. Be sure that the rails, console and housing are in place and fastened tightly to the body of the treadmill. Tighten any loose screws or bolts

  • Additional: Level the machine with a good level 2) put a little oil to the shaft of incline motor c) to line up the incline motor

    Machine shuts off when i press incline up. Belt and board look ok

    THis sounds like a controller board problem. In many of the treadmills I have seen the same board controls the drive motor and the incline motor. If this product is under warranty have the company covering the warranty check it out. Anytime you buy one of these machines buy the extenced warranty. I was a field service tech for a warranty company. When you call in with a problem make it sound severe.. I have replace almost everything in one except the frame just to make a customer happy. I am not sure of the error message but i seem to remember it being associated with the controller.

    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
