Question about Nordic Track Exercise & Fitness

1 Answer

Nordic Track c2200 no speed signal. My NT c2200 treadmill behaved erratically briefly (sudden speed changes up and down) before quitting altogether. The console now behaves as though it's working but the motor does not turn. It has the MC-2100 motor controller. The trobleshooting LED shines solid indicating it is not receiving a speed signal. In the case of no speed signal is it still possible that the problem is with the MC-1200, or does this indicate that the problem is either the wiring harness from the console, or the console itself?

It likely is the controller if it was speeding up and down erratically. Check the position of the reed switch to make sure it is positioned about 1/8" away from the magnet in the side of the front roller pulley. Run a diagnostic program as follows. Press the stop and speed arrow up buttons until you insert the key. Press the stop once or twice until you get to a screen with 2 sets of zeros. Now press and hold the speed arrow up button until one number set shows 8.5. The unit will go to full speed so be careful not to be on the walking belt. The other number set should top out shortly at either 10.0 or 12.0 based on whether your speed buttons go up to 10 or 12. If the motor races past your top number,( don't let it run that way as you may damage the motor), pull the key. If the readout is above or below your target by more than .4 and not flucuating a lot, you may need to tune the potentiometer on the controller. Counter clockwise turn with a phillips screwdriver turns the motor speed down. Be carefull not to short out the controller board by touching components with screwdriver. If not comfortable ask a friend with electronics background. If you turn the pot. too far it will break. It will not go a full revolution in either direction and tiny movements are recommended. Again I believe your controller needs replacing.

If the timer is set it will always stop at EXACTLY the same time.
If the motor is overheating, it will usually slow down before it stops; and the time will be a little different each time.

My treadmill is telling me the wrong amount of calories burned and the wrong speed at which I am traveling. For example, I hit the button that says 6 mph, but the treadmill says I am running at 9.7 mph....

I had the same problem with my Nordic Track. I had somehow changed the display to metric readings.

Solution: Hold the stop button down while inserting the key, push the speed up or down button to change it back to english, remove key and you are good to go. Re insert the key and it should work fine. Hope this helps.

The deck is most likely broken, It would need replaced if this is the problem. The nordictrack models do not have decks that can be flipped. That is usually reserved for a commercial grade machine of a different brand.
