The incline sensor is probably defective and let the incline motor physicall jam against the stop. About 50% of the time a new sensor will cure the problem; otherwise, a new motor with the sensor is the cure. Either way the incline motor must be removed to address the problem and I would reccomend leaving this to someone with experience as you could possibly injure yourself trying to attemp this without the proper knowledge. The weight of the teadmill is on the incline motor and that is where the risk is.

My treadmill is stuck on incline 12 and wont move up or down tried all the resets?

Go into engineering mode by pressing the stop and speed up button at the same time while inserting safety key. Once in mode, press the stop button once more then press the plus incline button. the incline should calibrate itself. If not then you might need a motor control board.. I have some in stock, shoot me a message if needed

Incline stuck at 12

please follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas
1 )Locate the reset switch on the underside of the treadmill console. Usually the button is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill. ·2
Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.
Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill. The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place. Your treadmill is reset

Clean the heart rate monitoring pads if the console is not displaying your heart rate when you grip the pads. Use a damp cloth and a mild soap to clean the pads. Do not use alcohol or any other abrasive cleaners that may damage the equipment.

Calibrate the ramp if the elliptical is not functioning properly. Press and hold the "Target Toning Workouts" button on the console until the calibration mode appears on the display. Press the "Target Toning Workouts" button once. The elliptical will display additional directions. Use the "One Step Power Ramp" increase and decrease buttons to raise and lower the ramp.

Adjust the reed switch by removing the access cover, which sits over the wheel of the elliptical at the back of the machine. The access cover can be removed with a flat-head screwdriver. Unplug the machine. The reed switch provides information to the console for display. Rotate the pulley until the pulley magnet, which is under the belt, lines up with the reed switch. The reed switch has a wire running into it. Loosen the screw to the reed switch and adjust the distance closer or farther from the pulley magnet. Tighten the screw. Plug in the machine and rotate the pulley. If the console still is not displaying correctly, repeat adjusting the reed switch distance either closer or father from the pulley magnet.

Adjust the drive belt if the pedals slip while in use. Unplug the elliptical. Lift the latch on the underside of the left pedal arm and slip it off. Use a screwdriver to remove the arm sleeve and pry open the disc panel. Loosen the pivot screw located on the left side. The belt tighten screw is below the pivot screw. Tighten the belt tightening screw until the belt is tight. Tighten the pivot screw. Replace the disc and arm to the elliptical

Error 100 won't connect to network anymore to use ifit live

Check the power cord to ensure it is connected to the power supply and the treadmill if the power does not stay on or does not turn on. Look at the circuit breaker, located near the base of the unit, to see if the circuit was tripped. Push the switch back in to reset the circuit.

  • 2 Take the key out of the console, wait a minute and place it back in the console to resolve issues with the power turning on and off during use or if the console displays are not functioning properly.
  • 3 Remove the console key and press the "Stop" button to turn off the "Demo" mode, which is often the default setting when the treadmill is first purchased.
  • 4 Reset the incline by holding down the "Stop" and "Speed increase" buttons and putting in the console key. Release the buttons and then press the "Stop" button, followed by the down or up arrows for the incline. This step can be taken if errors are occurring with the incline function.
  • 5 Turn the treadmill "Off" and unplug the unit if errors continue. Wait five minutes and then plug the unit back on, insert the console key, and turn the treadmill "On." This will reset the treadmill and should return to normal funcTION
