Question about Proform 810 TR Treadmill

3 Answers

My Proform Frontrunner worked for a few days after it was moved, but now only goes at one speed, will not incline and will not shut off. I've read Krista's solution about slitting the ribbon cable, but don't understand how "seating each one individually, putting them back in the the white plastic thing finding the one that freezes up all the other buttons" work. As they are reseated how do you know which one is causing the problem?

    No, it was just folded up and put in a pickup truck.

    No it was folded and put in the back of a pickup truck

    Hi Roadtech, I sent two messages that the machine had been moved by folding it up and putting in the back of a pickup truck. I will try what you suggest but how does one access the controller to see the red light.

    Thanks much,
    Laurel

    The incline motor may indeed be frozen, but how does that effect the lack of speed modulation and the disfunction of the stop button?

Hi

You need to calibrate the incline Motor
Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. For key sequence instructions to enter calibration.....
Press the Stop key once. The Time window should read EP: 2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test. Press either incline key or the incline will calibrate automatically. This is a very important step because you will get an error message if the step is skipped. After completing the calibration of incline, press the Stop key and then remove the safety key.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Try this This is a solution I have tried and had success with in the past. Sometimes incline motors will get frozen in position and need broke free. Try this:
take the motor cover off and take the screw out of the bottom of the incline motor that is attached to the screw assembly. Once you remove the screw you should be able to break the incline motor free. run the incline up and down with the screw still off( laying the treadmill on its side may make this easier). Once it goes up and down (hold the screw so it goes in and out) reattach it then run the calibration described below. If it was just stuck it should work fine.

1. remove safety key
2. press and hold the speed+ and stop keys at the same time
3. Put the safety key in/on and release the keys
4. press stop once
5. hit the incline + arrow and let the incline go the whole way up and down
6. remove safety key and try

If these instructions do not work to fix the incline motor
check your main harness running down the right leg for breaks in the wires or a loose connection if nothings found you can switch the red and black wires on the incline motor terminal block and see if it goes up or down. If it does you know you are only getting voltage to one side of the motor. There is a schematic under the motor hood that tells you what the voltage should be when you press the up or down keys. Use a multi-meter to see if you are getting the correct voltage coming from the console to the motor control board and then from the board to the motor. If no voltage from console-replace console if you have voltage from console but not from board - replace board and finally if you have voltage from console and from board replace motor. You will need to test the voltage both when pressing the up key and the down key.

    The wiring harness as I mentioned before can get crimped as well and this could be the culprit as well as the control board. Have you been able to check any voltages, did you find the schematic?

Hello,

did you disassemble the treadmill to move it?

Posted on Dec 31, 2010

  • Matt Olenzek
    Matt Olenzek Jan 02, 2011

    Hello, Make sure to check your ground wires. There are 4 ground wires that need to be connected to the treadmill frame. If you disconnected the wires I would check this first, Second I would check the screws that secure the upper handles to the two uprights, sometimes these screws go right through the wire harness on the right side.



    The only other thing it could be is a bad console or controler.



    Check the controler for a red light. When the red light comes on, that shows you that you have power to the controler. The controler powers everything. If you have power to the console you have good power. Now the motor and incline problem. When you press start and select the speed buttons you should notice the red light should start flashing, just before the walk belt starts moving. If it does..... Good. Now you said that the incline wont shut off........ You have a ground/pierced wire. You need to find the pinch/pierce... repair it and you should be good.





    Remember the two screws unde the right handle, the forward most screw has the potential to go right through the wire harness when assembling. I'll bet thats your problem.



    Hope this helps, Matt

The Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration
1. Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)
2. Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).
3. Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.
4. If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.
5. Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
6. Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
7. Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
8. Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
9. Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."
10. Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.
11.Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.
12. Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.
13. When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.
14. Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.
If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step.

Run the software calibration for troubleshooting. Test the s. sensor for open or faulty .clean it and tight very well.

Only one program works. you can start manual but have no control over speed or incline.this is a proform frontrunner


Dear Sir:

I will help you inmediately.

SOLUTION: a. Remove the key from the console and unplug the
power cord. Remove the screws from the hood and
carefully remove the hood. Locate the Reed Switch
and the Magnet on the left side of the Pulley
. Turn the Pulley until the Magnet is aligned with
the Reed Switch. Make sure that the gap between
the Magnet and the Reed Switch is about 1/8ó. If
necessary, loosen the Reed Switch Screw and
move the Reed Switch slightly. Retighten the Screw.
Re-attach the hood, and run the treadmill for a few
minutes to check for a correct speed reading.

Please check it and contact me if there are any additional help. blessing. sincerely.

Can I dismantle proform 360p to move it


When plugging my treadmill in it was going at max speed without the key even in. Now it has slowed to a complete stop and I can not get it to move. The incline works, but not the speed.

Profom frontrunner.Power,lights,no motor or incline.3yrs old.


I had the same problem-only one of my programs would work, and the rest of the buttons (even start) would not work. I used some scissors and carefully cut about a 1/2 inch in the plastic inbetween each of the copper strips in the ribbon cable. Then I seated each one individually (put them back in the white plastic thing) until I found the one that was freezing all of the other buttons up. Now all of my buttons EXCEPT for the one that was working before work. I can live without 1 program if it saves me $300

PS-mine also stopped working after we moved it, but when I told an "expert" that he said it wouldn't just stop working because I moved it....I think moving it DEFINATELY had something to do with it.

Treadmill will not maintain the correct speed.


You can get a book by calling 1-800-999-3756. The treadmill you are usine in a cheaper model. the motors on those units are not that strong. when you incline your unit gravity make the belt move faster. Remember incline put a lot of pressure on you lower spine. This can cause injury for some.
