Take hood off and take the wires from the motor. the ones that power go through, and test with a fully charged cordless drill one at least 18volt that should run your motor . not fast but it will cycle.if motor runs then its the controller board

Just got Nordictrack 1750. Assembly was easy but incline does not work. Everything else seems to be okay. Took motor cover off and do not seem to be getting any power to incline motor.

go HOOD cover motor follow the steps or ready your owner manual, and RUN the software calibration for easy diagnostic and fix it.

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

2. Insert a pencil (eraser end),
into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when

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

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.

the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum
speed, then stop on its own.

the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its
highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.

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

System cannot connect wire

you must test the quick start button for defective, this is closed all the time, this connect the machine,and of course pass to RUn . You must LUBE the deck belt, for to avoid the system shut down.
I strong recommend try to RUN the software calibration Hunder the HOOD motor, for easy diagnose, troubleshooting, and fix it.
3) test the input voltage motor, if there are voltage the motor need repair.
4) test the output voltage boad, if there are NOT the board is faulty.

Hi, our proform 790 tr treadmill is aorund six years old and the walking belt and height motor seem to be going. Is it worth replacing these and is it fairly straightforward?

Changing a walking belt takes about an hour for someone who has done it before. Check the walking deck for scratches, damage as well. Often times if the belt is worn out, the deck needs to be replaced as well. Belts vary in price depending on the make and model of treadmill. Parts can be ordered by calling the number found on the model number sticker on the treadmill. There are 10 different machines with the 790t model name. To get the correct parts find the actual model number (will start with "H"). The parts come with replacement instructions.
Belt $105 Deck $190
As for the incline motor, it is very rare to change that part. It may just require calibration. Start the machine . Press incline up and hold, remove the safety key. Now reinsert the safety key. The machine should rise to full incline then back down to minimum. Once the cycle is complete, the treadmill should work normally. If the incline sensor is defective, the motor will have to be replaced. Incline motor $150.
