Question about Epic View 550 Treadmill
First check the incline motor is it getting hot after few minutes.Is it making any kind of humming noise when you try to get the incline down.
Also check if something jamming the incline motor and not letting it to spin.Also recheck the incline motor and its connections.If any wire loose or got cut in between.First confirm this basic possibility.
Also does the motor elevates the incline upwards,directly as the machine is turned ON.If the motor is trying to elevate upwards even when the treadmill is switched on but not being used, then this could indicate that there is an open circuit pushing mains voltage into the upwards motion of the motor whenever you have the treadmill on. But in general there could be two main problems; 1. the incline motor and mechanism is clogged with dust and needs cleaning out, or 2. the incline mechanism is damaged and needs replacing.To clean the incline mechanism you need to unplug the machine from the wall, remove the motor cover, and carefully clean round the inside of the motor bay with a vacuum cleaner. Be very careful not to damage or move any of the components inside as they can be quite fragile.You should see a large motor that runs the main running belt and another smaller motor (sometimes pointing downwards) with a large (1 inch+ in diameter) screw thread coming out of it. That screw thread is the incline mechanism which links to the base of the machine. If it's clogged with dust and carpet fibres it will jam the incline motor - it needs to be kept clean.
if all this checked and still the problem is same and if you are confirmed that new incline motor is not faulty ,then try this procedure as follows:--
1) First take the power cord off from power.
2) Then take a cover off from the bottom of machine, so you can access the motor. 3) Then unscrew the bolt on one of end on the incline motor. At this end, it is usually a big screw like a shaft. 4) Then try to make this screw turn. so the shaft can be turned freely. 5) Then without putting the motor back, connect all power back like normal, then put key into machine and try to go up or down on incline motor. 6) See if the incline is working with motor not fitted just its connection hanged outside.If it works then reconnect every thing. 7) If the motor still jams then repeat above steps with a big screw adjustment (loosing or tighten about 1/2 turn, it depends).
Try this procedure.Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits.The procedure is in the manual if you have it.
