Question about Nordic Track Mc2100 Lts30 Treadmill Motor Controller

Open Question

I actually took the speed control circuit, and motor, out of a treadmill. The control panel however connected to the speed control board does not work. I want to know how I can create a simple controller board to change the speed of the motor to use for other projects. Like in a bandsaw that I want to modify.

SOURCE: treadmill will not start

Better know someone who can fix it, like who you got the Treadmill from. Maybe they can help you, it's better if you had the warranty. Or you can trade yours in for another one. That always helps.

SOURCE: replaced the motor controls

Is there a sheet of paper under the motor hood? It has the procedures for this calibration of the motor speed. Caution ! You should use a plastic screwdriver to make adjustment to the speed control on the motor controller. It is high voltage

SOURCE: Nordictrack motor will not run when start button is pushed.

Likely the cover of one of the motor brushes popped off. Unplug the machine before you pop it back in place, then try it again.

If that doesn't work, most likely it's the motor control board, or possibly the console, or finally just a loose connection behind the console.


But most likely, it's the motor brush cover. I've been seeing that alot with this model.

SOURCE: Life Fitness T3 treadmill won't turn on. Power

Could be. If you had to take it apart, I would definately check the wire harness connection. Also if there are bolts that were removed, check to make sure none of those pinched the harness when reassembling.

SOURCE: Nordic Track c2200 no speed

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.

Pro form sport 1000 treadmill goes full speed on power up


Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller board. To test to make sure the problem is in the board


1) Unplug the treadmill from the wall.

2) Remove the motor hood.

3) Unplug the speed wires from the board. On many boards, you will have 2 to 3 wires that control speed and many are labeled H, W, and L. If you cannot find the speed wires, do not guess, contact us with your make and model number and we will try to help you with the wiring.

4) Return the treadmill to a usable position once the speed wires are disconnected and plug the treadmill back in.

5) If the treadmill begins to run at full speed, the motor control has failed and requires replacement.

6) If the treadmill does not run at full speed you could have a speed input problem, wiring problem, or another short circuit.

When I put the key in, the treadmill belt goes really fast. Its like its stuck and I can't turn it down the knob keeps popping off. Do I need to get it serviced.


hi,
You have to check the Driver circuit board for the motor. There is motor control IGBT Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) in this board .If the IGBT is short then the treadmill will try to run at high speed without setting any value or witout pressing the start button. You have to check the OHMS between the seocnd and third of lead of the IGBT. If it shows less than 100 Ohms then the IGBT is short and you have to replace the same. Also you have to check the connection to the control pannel. Is there is any loose conatct. Remove the connection in the motor control board which go to the control pannel and reconnect it. Also check the speed sensor. In most of the treadmill you can find the speed sensor near the motor pully. Remove the speed sensor and clean it and the refix it. Remember one thing remove the power of the treadmill and leave it for 30 minutes then only oppen the treadmill. Because there is high voltage storage capacitors in the motor control board which will hold charge for some time even after the power is disconnected. i ahve added the picture of IGBT for your refference

ok

It sounds a lot like it might be your Motor Control Board. You can find one used on varios websites (ebay if you're lucky). I found one for $149.00 on the following website:

I hope you got a good deal on it because it seems to be quite an expensive part.

Thanks and good luck!
