Check the upright cable for crimped or broken wires and the connections to the controller board and the console. Most units run the cable up the right side leg. If they are damaged you need to splice them back together. Hope that was it.

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.

My console comes on. I am able to change speed and incline but my walking belt does not move. Could it be the motor has gone bad?


1) Lube the deck belt, maybe you have a worn deck belt, use 100% silicones or wax, check your instr. manual
2) Lube the rollers bearing with wd-40 very well
3) Test the drive belt motor, for cracking or worn belt
4) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair, please go to my personal TIPS for motor help
5) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty, see the block dia
God bless you

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.

Hi my carl lewis treadmill mot 566 has snapped down the middle and the support bars are also damaged where do i go go from here


You will have to call or e mail where the unit was purchased, if the support bars are not welded to the frame they can be replaced along with a new running belt and deck if not cost prohibitive. If support bars are welded either have new support beams welded in and replace the belt and deck again if not cost prohibitive. And I don't know if the parts and frame are still under warranty.
