You will need to check the speed sensor for proper alignment and function. it should be located near the front roller or mounted on the motor. It should be within a credit cards width of the magnet or toothed wheel. If properly adjusted check with an ammeter to see if it is opening and closing by manually spinning the front roller or motor flywheel. If it isn't replace the sensor. If it is functioning make sure you are getting 5vdc to it across the wires. If you are not replace the upper control board(console). If you are getting the proper voltage then replace the lower control board(motor controller).

How can I slow down a Sportcraft TX 320 treadmill?

Hi There, hmmm.... am I hearing that the treadmill starts too fast? At over 1mph? Most US treads will start at 1MPH and some will allow selection of .5MPH in the maintenance mode settings maybe. Otherwise, this could be attacked by a technical crew, like jatinah electronics possibly. If the treadmill would be set at one speed only that could be accomplished by reducing the drive signal at the component-level. It is certainly workable, but I would need to know what the current speed is that is too fast for her, and her ideal speed. ;o)

Tx 2.5 is on 7

To reconfigure the controller to factory setting:
1) Hold both the "Mode" and "Stop" buttons down while removing the magnetic key.
2) While continuing to hold both buttons down, replace the magnetic key. All the lights will light up and "beep".
3) Whille continuing to hold both buttons down, press the + button.
It should now be reconfigured.
I hope this helps

My TX 5.0 RC Sportcraft Treadmill stops and show in the screen a #3... Start normal, but in seconds stops... I want to know how to fix it... Thanks...

You will have to unscrew that part out of the treadmill and take it out, and then put it back in to see if that makes any difference. If for some reason that does not work, you may have to contact the company to get a replacement on your treadmill, or to see if they wil fix it for you. Since each treadill is different, defects are inevitable, so a person will have to use consider going this route if all else fails.

I have a sportcraft tx 2.5 treadmill thats needs it stops on 7 sec evertime i moved and lost the manual to it what should i do

Can you give more details? are you saying it stops 7 seconds after you step on it, (every time)?

If so, have you had the treadmill a while? this is an indicator of a worn belt. the belt is not sliding like it should, and drawing too much current. your control board will 'clip' the current off after a pre-set time, to avoid burning up components.

other things it could be:
1. your belt is too tight. did you tighten it lately? When did your treadmill start doing this?
2. The motor is going bad, and drawing too much current.
3. motor control board is bad.

look at your motor's current rating: measure the current draw when you get on it. if the current draw is ~ 80% of the rated current of the motor, and your belt is good,..and not too tight, it could be the motor.

if the treadmill is stopping while only drawing 4 or 5 amps, I would lean towards the control board is bad.

cheapest way to get started troubleshooting. Ensure the belt is not too tight, (adjust to only about 3 inches slack, when you pull up on it). next. buy some belt lubricant and lube it up.

If this doesn't fix your problem, keep looking for other fixya help. someone with SportCraft TX 2.5 specific experience. Sorry, I only have generic help here.

good luck.
