Question about Proform 730 Folding Treadmill Model PFTL71104 - !

1 Answer

My treadmill motor starts exactly for a second and stops. Checked the motor brush it is fine and tried switching the power cables on the controller board, motor runs to high speed with direct current (which means motor is fine), it simply starts and stops (jst one second) when it recieves power from the controller. I guess the controller pcb has a problem. my wife was complaining that the machine was slowing down by itself untill one fine morning it completely stopped

What is the main cause for motor failure in a CT7.1 tradmill

The CT-7.1 is the exact same treadmill as the Horizon T-202.
Treadmills use brushed DC motors. It is possible that the brushes are worn out. You may be able to purchase new brushes on-line. You can source them by searching for replacement parts for either of the above two makes and models.
It is also possible that some circuitry on the control board has been damaged or even something as simple as a sensor switch has failed.

Treo 121 treadmill. E1 error

Does sounds like a speed sensor. I would replace that first before doing anything else. You might have a blinking led on the controller that blinks when the belt is running...if you do and it blinks when you turn the belt manually, the sensor is good. If thats the case then you may have a bad wiring harness or controller.

Treadmill (Vision Fitness T8500) turns on, motor doesn't run...

open motor shroud and inspect all connection on the motor control board see if all LED 's are lit except that light up when incline motor is moving up or down. then check the two connector coming from the drive motor to the board sometime over time the two connector will have a cold soldier I would move them to see any excessive movements of the pins then hit start and see if there is any belt movement. Last but not least unplug unit and check the motor brushes if they are less than 3/8 in in length replace them. Call them @ 1-800-335-4348 they under their parent corp. Johnson fitness.

My Vision Fitness t8500 treadmill's deck just stopped working. It makes no noise when i turn it on. all other functions (elevations & programs) work fine. any troubleshooting ideas?

I had the same problem. I even ordered a $300 controller board. The new board didn't work either. That's when I started checking voltages from the control board to the motor. That was good. Lastly I checked the brushes. Almost nothing left. . . The motor started working again after I put everything back together. I need to order new brushes and return that contoller board.
