Question about Nordic Track NordicTrack Treadmill, A2550

1 Answer

Nordictrack motor will not run when start button is pushed.

My wife and I have a brand new Nordictrack A2550. Straight out of the box after assembly the motor that moves the treadmill belt will not run when the start button is pushed. The control console emits several short beeps but the treadmill stays still. The incline/decline buttons raise and lower okay and the control console appears to working. Any suggestion?

Likely the cover of one of the motor brushes popped off. Unplug the machine before you pop it back in place, then try it again.

If that doesn't work, most likely it's the motor control board, or possibly the console, or finally just a loose connection behind the console.

But most likely, it's the motor brush cover. I've been seeing that alot with this model.

    If the machine is new call the retail company you bought it from. It is under warranty . I have never seen this with any Icon branded product , a problem the customer should not touch .

Does the Nordi Track Commercial zs Treadmill have a 3.0 CHP

It is continuous. Some manufacturers used to say just "horsepower," when "continuous" horsepower was really a better measure. Consumers picked up on this and started asking your question. Now the horsepower quoted by almost all brands, including NordicTrack, os continuous. However, they got lots of consumers asking "What does 'continuous' mean? so now they just say "horsepower," even though it is "continuous" horsepower! For a full explanation of what this means, see treadmill answers.
