Shuts down when in use. Looses all information except incline settings. Do not have to turn machine off, can hit start button and treadmill begins operating again. May shutdown once while in use or 4 times. Timers and all other readouts except incline go back to zero.

This sounds like a static electricity problem.
First, check your outlet for a proper ground connection.
Be sure that the ground pin on the plug has not been removed.
Depending on the model, a number of machines came with connecting clips to ensure that the upper console was grounded. They were installed during the time of assembly between the frame and console. Check your manual assembly instructions to see if yours is one of these, and check to be sure they have been installed.

Testimonial: "Not only the grounding screw was loose but also the surge protector that the treadmill was plugged into had been damaged by the loose connection."

Hi,

I will advice you try re-calibrate your treadmill, follow the procedure below to re-calibrate it,

Step 1 Stand on the side rails of the treadmill for safety purposes. Remove the safety key. Step 2 Press and hold the two incline buttons. The incline buttons are blue and on the left side of the display. Hold the up and down button simultaneously. Release the buttons when the display reads "Calibration."
Step 3 Press the green start button located either above or below the large, red stop button (depending on your model). Stay on the side rails as the treadmill belt begins to move. Both the speed and incline should go through their full range from lowest to highest, and then back down again.
Step 4 Repeat the process if the display does not read "Calibration Successful."

Nordictrack exp 1000 xl not shutting off


Your treadmill is in "Demonstration mode".
Here are the instructions to shut it off.
First you must enter "Information mode".
To select the information mode, hold down the Stop
button whilst inserting the key into the console. When
the information mode is selected, the following information
will be shown:
Total number ofhours that the treadmill has been used.
The Distance/Incline display will show the total number of miles.
An "E," for English miles, or an "M," for metric kilometres.
If a "d" appears in the display, the console is in the "demo" mode.
Press the Speed - button so the Heart Rate/Calories display is blank.
To exit the information mode, remove the key from the console.

Please be advised, when the safety key is removed THE TREADMILL IS NOT SHUT OFF, only the console is shut off. You must turn the machine off using the power switch in the front of the machine near the power cord, or I recommend purchasing a power bar with a power switch and turning the power off at the power bar.

Try to recalibrate the incline. Start the machine running, press the incline up button, then pull the safety key off. Release the incline up button and replace the safety key. The treadmill should go to maximum incline then minimum. after calibration is completed, retry the treadmill operation.

Machine shuts off when i press incline up. Belt and board look ok


THis sounds like a controller board problem. In many of the treadmills I have seen the same board controls the drive motor and the incline motor. If this product is under warranty have the company covering the warranty check it out. Anytime you buy one of these machines buy the extenced warranty. I was a field service tech for a warranty company. When you call in with a problem make it sound severe.. I have replace almost everything in one except the frame just to make a customer happy. I am not sure of the error message but i seem to remember it being associated with the controller.

Ifit treadmill will not incline but everything else works, how do I fix the incline


You may need to calibrate the incline. Do this with the following procedure.
Safety key out
press the stop and speed up buttons at the same time while inserting the safety key. (you are now in diagnostics)
press the stop button one time only.
now press the incline up button (incline motor should start moving up)
incline will go up to the top and then all the way to the bottom. when it gets done you can remove the key. Reinsert the key and you should be operating normally.
Good luck Tim

Nordictrack apex4100i level incline will not work


Try this calibration procedure.
Turn the power switch on. Remove the safety key. Hold the Stop and Speed Up or Speed Plus buttons down then insert the safety key.
The display should show some numbers.
Press the stop key one time and the display should show some other numbers and some 00's. Press the Incline Up button and see if the Incline begins to move, if it does let it go all the way up and then all the way down, wait a few seconds after it stops, then hit the stop key 4 times. It should be calibrated. If it didn't move then the board or the incline motor is bad.

Elevation has gone too high. foot rollers are hitting front plate


Precor Error E4, Incomplete Initialization Probable Cause Indicates that an incomplete upper PCA to lower PCA initialization occurred. When this error occurs, all lift motor and drive motor motion is ceased and the display will go blank except for the error displayed.
Corrective Action Run the initialization program. Caution: The treadmill's running belt will accelerate to the treadmill's maximum speed (12mph). DO NOT stand on the treadmill's running belt during the procedure.
  1. Set the on/off switch to the OFF position. Wait a minimum of 10 seconds to allow the internal power supply to discharge.
  2. Remove the safety key from the console and set the on/off switch to the ON position.
  3. Press INCLINE UP and SPEED DOWN keys together. While pressing these keys, replace the safety switch on the console. Continue holding the INCLINE UP and SPEED DOWN keys until the display goes blank. INIT will appear in the time window of the display. The EEPROM is now clear and reset. After a second, 1.25 will appear in the distance/calories window, 15.0 (the maximum incline) will appear in the incline window, and 12.0 (the maximum speed) will flash in the speed/pace window.
  4. Press QUICKSTART to begin the speed calibration process. Power bits will appear in the incline window, the target speed will appear in the time window and the actual speed will appear in the speed/pace window. At the beginning of the process, the target speed will be .5mph. The running belt will start. Once the actual speed reaches .5mph, the target speed will then change to 12mph and the running belt will accelerate until it reaches 12mph, then it will stop.
  5. When the running belt stops, the display will return to the user mode and the initialization process is complete.
