SOURCE: Replaced Motor Control, motor and Main Control board, but still won't work

The only other thing that could cause the ON light to turn off as soon as the motor is about to start would be a bad or loose connection that causes a break in the circuit. Even if the components are O.K. the connection could still be causing the problem.

SOURCE: gfci breaker for spa

gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.

SOURCE: Proform 515s treadmill motor won't start

If the colse buttons make a chirping noise when you push them the console should be Ok. If there is no chirping noise with the push it is a bad console. If everything but the speed works it will probably be your motor controller that is bad.

SOURCE: Tech support for New Balance 1400 treadmill thinks

In general, I haven't ever seen the MCB fuse ever blow. But the fuse should be visable if you remove the lower cover and look at the circuit board, most of these are of the old style automotive type and can be found at an auto store. more than likely a transister is blown and the board itself needs to be replaced, this usually happens due to the deck not being lubricated

Life Fitness 4000 repeatedly blows outlet circuit breaker

If there was a fuse in the treadmill it certainly wouldn't cause your main circuit breaker to blow. It sounds like the motor burnt out and shorted- which is causing your house circuit breaker to blow. There is a chance that the ball caused some other damage that is creating the short but my bet is on a burnt out motor. You would need to disassemble the unit and test for short circuits to verify.

first check and see what the circuit is rated at. it you have too many thing on that circuit(light,tv,etc) this will trip your breaker because of the amp draw of the treadmill. nordictrack recommends a dedicated circuit of 20amp. you may nned to have a circuit put in with 12/2 wire

1) I am assuming that the breaker is the treadmill and Not from your house.
2)you must test the Main Motor. measure the voltage without load
3)now you must test the main motor controller board.
4) transformer.test .see the block diagram and see how the main motor board has aprox 90% of functions of any treadmill.

Treadmill electical issue: My Spirit SR275 Programmable treadmill blows the panel electrical fuse for our workout room when I start the belt. I can operate other treadmill control functions without blowing...

A treadmill has a high current draw -- it should be on a dedicated 15 amp-circuit -- if sharing a cricuit, it's not unusual, from time to time, for it to trip a breaker or blow a fuse in the main panel.

I have a Spirit SR-918 treadmill. running at 3.2 m, Stops and trips circuit breaker any where from 5 to 25 minutes.Had same problem in 2007, walking belt, deck and motor bushings replace. Put $500 into it...

We also have a Spirit SR 918. It may be the lower or upper boards powering the motor that malfunctioned.

We need a particular part replaced on it, other than those boards, so if you still have not trashed the unit, have replaced it, or are thinking about disposing of the unit, we will pick it up. We are in Chicago, as well.

It will cost us between $125 to $499 to replace our treadmill, but it is so heavy duty, that it comes down to finding the parts, since additional labor will come out even.

E1 error on display

E1 code means an elevation problem but I am not familiar with the new Spirit models. Been trying to set up with Spirit now that I am getting calls on them again. Its been 5 years since my last call, best thing to do is get in contact with Spirit and they will direct you on what to do or give you phone # to call a service provider. The older units had a calibration sequence for such a problem.
