Question about Nordic Track Exercise & Fitness

Hello, I have had a Nordictrack Apex6100xi for 8

Hello, I have had a Nordictrack Apex6100xi for 8 years, and it has worked very well (I use it 3 to 5 times per week) until now. Recently, I have stopped setting the speed faster than 4mph due to the loud banging noise associated with faster speed. Any speed that is greater than 4mph will produce the noise, and the faster the speed the louder the noise is. Upon closer inspecion, the noise seemed to come from the deck, as if some tightening act would be needed. I did try to lubricate the walking belt with the ICON performance lube, and as I suspected, it has no effect on the 'banging' type of noise which seemed to be coming from the loosen parts associated with the deck. Does it sound like I am on the right track, and if it does, how hard is it to take the platform apart to check on the nut and bolts that keep the deck to the frame? To sum up, more speed equals to more noise. Not squeaky but loud banging type of noise. Thanks in advance for your help. Tin. ps- I did check to make sure there was no external objects got trapped underneath.

    thanks, alokerdas, for your fast response. I'll see if I can try that when I come home tonight. just for a little reassurance. what is the level of task difficulty, on a scale from 1 to 10? I just want to know if I should hire someone to do it instead of myself (fyi- the biggest home project that I did was the water heater installation...) also, when you said 'reset', do you mean there is a system reset button some where ( I still have the manual) ? I would try to use the power on/off button otherwise. thx. Tin

According to your problem first check the deck where exactly it get loose. Open the deck and lubricate the roller motor. check all of the nuts if any one loose. reset the system.

    On a scale of 1 - 10 the difficulty level is 6. But you have to handle heavy metal sheets and belts. So it is always better to take help of a qualified technicial.

    The reset button is a small button located in a place where generally people can not reach easily. It may not be accisible easily also. You may have to press it by a pin or firm long piece of wire.
    One more suspect is the gears. Please check the grear teeth attached with the motor wheel.

I own a Nordictrack 7000R and the console just quit working. It turns on like before, but now only speeds 3, 8 and 12 other function start/stop, incline anything. I really love...

All electronics should have a surge protector. So when the power flickers and send a power surge to electronic plugged into the wall the circuit board is protected like your computer.

Only certain buttons on the NordicTrack exp1000 treadmill work.

1) You must check the flexible cord between display board vs controller motor board, and tight very well

2) Try to access to the keypanel and clean with special spray (clean contact you can find in radio schack or computer store).

3) Try to Measure the +5Vdc for I.C. including EPROM, ROM, etc.

4) And try again.

5) Measure if the power supply to display is coming out from the Lower board or Motor controller board. If not the Motor controller is faulty. You must replace it.

Use Dvoltmeter.

Remember 90% aprx the Motor controller board access to the function in the display board, elevation motor, power input, etc.

I have a NordicTrack A2250, about 2 years old. When it's turned on, the control panel lights up, and when I insert a program chip, the console "speaks". However, the neither the incline nor the belt...

Will the treadmill work when the chip is not plugged in, or does it just beep every time you select a button? If so, your problem is easy to solve. The board that supports the two adjacent up and down buttons has slipped. To fix, you'll need to remove the panel and remove the 3-inch retaining bar which is held in my two screws. Realign the board so the buttons are free to move in the available slots. Good luck.

Hello nordictrack has just stopped

Sometimes when these machines are assembled
a wiring harness gets damaged. If you have a manual, look at the diagram that shows the upright columns where the upper console mounts.
Look for the wiring harness coming out the top or bottom on the diagram. If it is on the right, the take the screws/bolts out of the arm that mounts to the upright and lift it up, just a little to see if the wiring harness is damaged or partly disconnected. If you cant see anything, then it is time to call a tech out to troubleshoot the problem.
