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.

My treadmill runs for 9 secons and stops and shows E1


Ok. So the first thing to try is to calibrate the speed.
You do this by doing the following:
  • With the SAFETY KEY in place, hold the ELEVATION UP and SPEED DOWN buttons for five seconds. The console will beep twice, "ENG0" will appear in the Distance window, and a number will appear in the Elevation window.
  • Press SELECT until "ENG3" appears; this is for Auto-Calibration.
  • Press START to Auto-Calibrate.
  • The treadmill will calibrate minimum and maximum speed, and minimum and maximum elevation. When Auto-Calibration is complete, the treadmill will reset to User's start screen. This process takes three to five minutes.
Make sure there are no errors. . .and that the speed goes from super slow to super fast and then stops. . .. if it stays slow. . or stays fast. .or error code appears during calibration, there is a problem.
If after a good calibration sequence, if it still does the stopping and E-1 after 10 seconds. ., then you need to (Power off and disconnect treadmill). . .then unplug the speed sensor from the lower power board, blow into the connector on the wire, and add a little contact cleaner spray to the connector on the board.
Recap: If it actually runs. . .but stops after a few seconds. . but the calibration runs and passes fine. .. .more than likely it is a speed sensor misread or a faulty speed sensor.

Treadmill Elevaton Error


There are a few things you may need to check. You already tried calibration. Next thing I would do is check the sensor wire from the incline to the controller. Make sure its properly plugged into the controller. The controller can also be an issue. If someone was tampering with the unit, the sensor wire could be plugged into the wrong connector as there is another connector that will fit.

The 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.

We had the lift frame crack on our Nordic Track A2550 after very limited use (but 1mo. after warranty). We replaced it in February and after 500 additional miles, the lift frame has cracked again. I...


General Construction
  • The most basic breakdown of a treadmill: a continuously moving belt powered by a motor over a deck that is mounted on a sturdy metal frame. The variables are the size of the belt, the power of the motor, the thickness and composition of the platform as well as the range of options that increase both function and cost of the treadmill. Making the right choices on all these permutations will add to the enjoyment and benefits of using your treadmill.
Frame Composition
  • Frames are generally made from aluminum or steel. Even if there's no difference in the tensile strength in the frames, steel is better because it will produce a heavier treadmill. That increases the machine's stability and lessens the vibrations generated by your exercise, especially running. Frames can be either bolted or welded together. Welded frames are stronger, and there is no risk of a bolt working loose during long periods of operating the treadmill.
Motor Size
  • Most treadmills have two electric motors. One raises and lowers the deck, allowing you to get a versatile workout. The more important motor is the one that moves the exercise belt under your feet. The drive motor turns a flywheel that is connected by a belt---similar to the belts for the engine of your car---to the front roller. The front roller pushes the exercise belt to the back of the treadmill where a free-moving rear roller serves as the exercise belt's turnaround point. Check for the continuous horsepower (CHP) and revolution per minute (RPM) rating on the motor. In fact, lift the motor cover and look for the ratings stamped directly on the motor. A motor that needs high RPMs (more than 5,000) to generate enough torque to drive the exercise belt is a candidate for overheating and is unlikely to last long. If your plan is only to walk---not run---on your treadmill, a 1.5-horsepower motor with less than 5,000 RPMs will suffice. But if you weigh more than 200 lbs. or you plan to run on your treadmill, you will need at least a 2-horsepower motor with an RPM rating of 4,000 or, preferably, less. Choosing one with 2.5 horsepower or more will be even better if you plan to run for long workouts. When in doubt, go up in horsepower. The motor not only moves the belt but it must overcome the resistance you provide with each stride. Smaller motors with high RPM ratings will allow the belt to hesitate slightly. In addition, you likely will be moving more slowly than the speed displayed on the treadmill's console if you are trying to run. Larger motors might be noisier, so look for a motor housing that absorbs some of the machine noise when the treadmill is in operation.
Belt Size
  • Your workout plans also will dictate what size belt and rollers you need. The treadmill's exercise belt will be made of a thin, multiply polyester/fabric mix with a PVC top coat, which produces the best combination for reducing friction and the heat it generates. This will extend the life of the belt and prevent slipping while you're in motion. Although the surface will be smooth against the deck, the PVC coating will be waffled underneath your feet for better traction. Even if you have short legs and you only plan to walk on the treadmill, you should get a belt at least 18 inches wide and 48 inches long. If you plan to run, a 20-inch belt width is better and 22 inches is best, and you shouldn't choose anything less than 54 inches in length. Longer---up to 60 inches---is better, especially for tall runners. The treadmill will run more smoothly with bigger rollers because the rollers will have more grip surface for the belt as it is propelled over the deck. If you plan to run on your treadmill, rollers with 2-inch diameter are the minimum. Some high-end treadmills come with 3.5-inch rollers. Larger rollers also result in less stress on the bearings; a 3.5-inch roller will need to rotate roughly 60 percent less than a 2-inch roller to cover the same distance.
Platform Surface
  • Treadmill decks are made of wood or, more specifically, composite wood substitutes, either particle board or medium density fiberboard (MDF). For runners, an MDF deck at least 1-inch thick is the minimum. A 3/4-inch surface might be OK for walking, but it will be too bouncy for running and will crack more easily. The deck surface will have a laminate coating---preferably on both sides---to allow the exercise belt to slide smoothly. Treadmills commonly have rubber grommets built into the frame to provide cushioning as you exercise. Some treadmills have shock absorption only in the front (landing area) so that you have a firmer push-off for your next stride. With the built-in shock absorption and the smooth surface, a workout on a treadmill is likely to be less stressful on your joints than running outdoors, unless you have access to a perfectly level wood-chip path.
Speed and Incline
  • Most treadmills now come equipped with easy-to-reach controls that allow you to change the belt speed and the incline of the deck while the belt is in motion. The lift motor generally uses a hydraulic lift to raise and lower the treadmill on its front legs. The elevation motor should have a thrust value of at least 400---more for runners---so the deck can be shoved up without any hesitation during exercise. Some treadmills use gears for elevation. That's neither as smooth nor as reliable as hydraulic lifts. The speed of the belt is controlled from the console of the treadmill. As you raise your speed by 1/10 mile per hour, the motor subtly increases the power it is generating to the rollers, much as a hair dryer does less subtly as you click from medium to high. For runners, look for a treadmill that provides a speed of at least 12 miles per hour and allows an elevation of at least 10 percent. That will give you the opportunity to include some speed work and hill training in your workouts.
More Features
  • Some treadmills come equipped with iPod ports, built-in TVs, drink holders, cooling fans, computer-generated workouts and heart-rate monitors. The computer workouts will build in elevation-change programs, and you can punch in the starting speed of your workout and change it manually. Treadmills also allow you to create programs in which you can choose both the speed and elevation changes. Heart-rate monitors calculate your heart beats per minute and can be operated continuously using chest or arm bands or intermittently using a finger clip or by gripping a sensor on the front rail with one hand. But none of these features outweighs the importance of choosing the right belt and motor for your workout.
Safety
  • Make sure the treadmill has a safety release---usually a magnetic key---so you can stop the exercise belt dead in the event of an injury or other emergency. The treadmill is wired so that the key must be in place on or near the console to complete the electronic circuit and allow the machine to operate. Yet the key can easily be yanked free, immediately stopping the drive motor and putting the brakes on the exercise belt.

I turned on my treadmill after a long hiatus :) and got an error message and a beep. The errors were E4, E9 and a few others. It is a Vision Fitness T9400HRT model. Any idea how to fix?


E4: Solution 1. Check power to the treadmill, as insufficient voltage to the treadmill can cause this error to reoccur. Check the power socket that the tread is plugged into. Eliminate any extension cords or surge protectors (plug the tread directly into a functional power source). Make sure the circuit is not overloaded. Make sure the circuit is NON-GFI. 2. Calibrate (See engineering mode for specific treadmill). 3. If calibrations do not hold, replace upper console. Note: Usually simultaneous with an E6. E6: Solution 1. Check the elevation plug connection at the lower board. 2. Check ALL large data cable connection at the lower and upper boards. 3. Calibrate (See engineering mode for specific treadmill) 4. Test/change large data cable (use large data cable information provided in the data cable portion of this Guide). 5. Replace elevation motor E7/E9: Solution 1. Certain lower boards have an LED that flashes when the magnet on the roller passes the sensor. Adjust sensor position if LED does not flash. See lower board basic troubleshooting for lower boards with the LED. 2. Unplug RPM sensor at the lower board. Check continuity. Treadmill will operate without sensor but cannot Autocalibrate. Calibrate manually. 3. Replace RPM sensor TREADMILL.TROUBLESHOOTING. AUTO CALIBRATION STEP 1 ENTER ENGINEERING MODE • With the SAFETY KEY in place, hold the “ELEVATION UP” and “SPEED DOWN” buttons for 5 seconds. “DGA3” will appear in the profile window and “EHG1” will appear in the function window. • You are now in ENGINEERING MODE STEP 2 ENTER AUTO CALIBRATIONS • Press the “ELEVATION UP” or “SPEED UP” to “EHG4”. • Press “SELECT”.
