Hi michelleboon,

Your treadmill is likely overcoming the home's ability to provide the power required that's why it keeps tripping. Most new treadmills require a dedicated 20 amp line. As the treadmill breaks in, it will draw less amperage but the long and the short of it is to check the owner's manual for the power requirements and then check the breaker that it's on. You can try to elevate the treadmill somewhat as this changes the user's gait and the result is a lower amp draw. Also, make sure to provide the treadmill with the power required.

If after checking what I mentioned above and still the issue persists it could be the motor that has problem or the drive system that the motor drives. If something is bound up, the motor could draw much more current than normal. You will need a local repairman to do further checking and repair with this.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

    Hi michelleboon,

    There's a chance that the fuse is blown. For it to be checked the cover of the motor should be removed while the machine is unplugged from power.Check the fuse on the controller. If the fuse is blown, the controller might be defective. Have the fuse be repalced and if it blows again, the controller is defective. You may contact a local repairman to do this for you.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using Fixya.

Treadmill will not level out and motor sounds all the time

If the incline moves but only just a bit, it could be a problem as simple as the gearbox on the motor being jammed. We remove the motor from the treadmill, reconnect the wiring, and then try to run the incline motor outside the treadmill. Many times, this will unjam it if that is the problem and then reinstalling it in the treadmill will get it to work. If you have the same problem or it doesn’t run outside the machine and you can hear it try to work, you need to replace the incline motor.

I have problem with my Proform 575. The motor rotates but the runner does not turn. There is a squeaky noise. Solution please.

It sounds like the belt is slack there should be an adjustment at the rear of the belt at either side of the treadmill usually a hex stud or allen key, if that doesn't help check the drive belt that comes directly from the motor which could also be slack or damaged.

Proform 450 X treadmill powers on, but trips current when started

There could be a combination of problems. I would first start with disconecting the motor leads and see if it trips the breaker. Then elevation motor would be next if no change from disconecting motor. More than likely it's a motor issue.

Proforma 575 runs when no one on it but stops after a few seconds

These are two distinct problems. For the running but stopping it seems like a load or a feedback issue. I would start with the easiest - Lubricate,lubricate,lubricate the walking belt, you maybe overworking the motor drawing to much power causing shutting down - usually this blows the MCB (spendy)

The other users problem more than likely comes from the motor, sounds like a bad leg (check the brushes and armatures)

Treadmill trips electrics

Check to see that the treadmill does not draw more amp than stated in the owners manual. If you are, then the problem is in treadmill. If not try another circuit in the house (not just another receptacle).
