Open up the motor compartment. Do this with the power off. Slip onto your wrist an anti-static band and clip it to the painted surface before discharging the transformer. The way to discharge a transformer from the motor compartment is to move the belt slowly. Now after all the power has been discharged, you welcome to get close to the PCB (Power Control Board). Inspect the board for burn't cable connections, also pull off any wires that may look like that there has been a power surge. IF you unit is plugged into a surge protector with other plugs into it, that is a bad choice. All treadmills should have their own power source and a amperage of 20 amp breaker to your treadmill. Check to see of the reed switch or the rpm sensor is 3 business cards away from either the motor itself or the front roller. IF this doesn't help, you may need to call customer support for your problem. Serial Numbers and phone numbers are usually located down at the base in front or if it is a folding treadmill, underneath it after folding it up. If you still need additional help call on us and we could help you find the problem. Now if you go into the motor compartment without the anti static strap, you may avoid any warranty associated with your treadmill. So please advise. Call us so you can workout tomorrow (805)377-1263.

Light switch turns on when cable plugged in; however, the treadmill is not starting. Please help. Nothing is coming on the console.

You need to be on the console for it to start. (I presume you are on it). Make sure the screen and console are properly connected.
if this is a new device, call the service technicians, they would know best. This device has a known problem with the console.
