Nordic Track Exercise & Fitness - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

All, just figured something out. I had the evil beeping problem as well. I decided to play around and see if I could fix it. I unplugged the iFit adapter from the main control board and when I plugged it back in and tested it, IT WORKS AGAIN! NO MORE BEEPING!

This is old I know, but it took me this long to figure this out. I did not find this answer anywhere else online. If you disassemble the console from the treadmill. Just a few screws in the back...then take off the magazine or tablet lip from the front of the console. Carefully peel back the button sticker and you’ll see the circuit grid for the buttons. One of them is stuck. So starting in the upper right of the clear sticker that holds the circuitry. Carefully peel the two layers apart. There is a top circuit and a bottom circuit sticker stuck together. i did this with the treadmill turned on but don’t stand on the belt while doing this. As you peel the top layer back you may hear some beeping as buttons come to life. For mine I peeled about halfway and then put the top layer back down. After a few peels and resticks all the buttons worked again! The only remaining issue is the 5 and 6 don’t work but up and down speed works so you can adjust that way. I would call this a last ditch idea but this is the issue that people are having. Your mileage may vary on what starts to work after trying. Maybe there are a few of these treadmills sitting out there collecting dust like mine was for 10 years. Mine has new life back in it!

Wow, lots of scary posts. If I had read this before, I would never have bought it. :)

Anyways, there is a solution. I dont think this post was ever resolved, so I ran across this site that offered a few steps that allowed me to fix the reboot issue and a few nice folks who would reply to any questions.

This sounds like a common problem with ifit on treadmills. I came across this site a few weeks back and it helped! There's a few folks there that could offer suggestions too. best of luck!

Hope this helps!

Most buttons (all but incline 6 through 12) on my C900i stopped working all of a sudden. Long story short... it was the ribbon cable connections on the back of the control panel. Its 6 screws to get the panel off, and then 10 screws to open the panel. Cut the zip tie so the connection wires can be pulled through the hole in the back panel cover. And then take the iFit module off after you open the panel to allow fully removing the cover. The little white piece on the ribbon cable connectors slides up to allow the cable to slip out. Search youtube if you've never dealt with ribbon cables/connectors - they're very common in electronics. You can also search for how to clean the cables. In my case, simply disconnecting/reconnecting was all I had to - this fixed every button on my panel.

Quoting from manual above (may be similar model if not the same.)

7. Turn on or turn off the display demo mode.
The console features a display demo mode,
designed to be used if the treadmill is displayed
in a store. While the demo mode is turned on, the
console will function normally when you plug in
the power cord, press the power switch into the
reset position, and insert the key into the console.
However, when you remove the key, the screen will
show a demo presentation.
To turn on or turn off the display demo mode, first
touch the Demo Mode button. Next, touch the On
checkbox or the Off checkbox.

I have the same issue I don't think anybody (including the supposed "experts") really know what they are talking about. The buttons work until they don't and then a bunch of them all stop functioning at once. The advice I always get is "replace the console" which amounts to saying "I don't know what's wrong" If I had to guess I think a static discharge has damaged the contoller board which doesn't manifest itself until the machine (and hence the board) warms up. Anyhow I haven't found a real solution to this issue if anyone has any real knowledge please post your solution.

1. Power

o 1

Ensure that the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surge suppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure the services of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proform treadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord.

o 2

Insert the safety key fully into the display. Treadmills with keys are designed not to turn on without the safety key in place.

o 3

Find the circuit breaker on the front of the frame and make sure it is not tripped. The circuit breaker is a vertical switch on the 540S and a horizontal switch on the 540 Interactive Trainer. Press it to the "Reset" position, which will be labeled.
2. Reed Switch

o 1

Unplug the treadmill and remove the safety key.

o 2

Move the upright base of the treadmill down with the help of another person and lift the uprights so that you can get to the underside of the console. Use a Phillips screwdriver with at least a 5-inch shaft to remove the screws. There are five hood screws on the 540 Interactive trainer and four screws on the 540S.

o 3

Remove the motor hood to get to the small reed switch by pivoting the hood off the frame. Find the reed switch and magnet, which are on the left side of the pulley for both models.

o 4

Turn the pulley with your hand until the reed switch aligns with the magnet. There should be 1/8-inch gap between the two. Fix the distance so that it is 1/8 inch by loosening the reed switch screw and sliding it to the correct distance. Tighten the screw.

o 5

Reverse the directions to put the hood back on and the treadmill upright in the original position.

Cleaning: Remove the covert and spray the Key Pad with special spray( contact cleaner) for to remove dust, etc, very carefully, you mus unplugged the machine.

Take another look at the answer above by spamslisher. This was exactly the problem I had. The control panel gave four quick beeps every ten seconds and the treadmill would not start or respond at all. The problem was a stuck button on the control head. That diagnosis was thanks to the tip from spamslisher above. I tried all the keys until I found one that didn't beep. That was the stuck key. In my case it turned out to be the down arrow on the ifit row, same as for spamslisher. After opening up my control panel it was easy to see how to disconnect the ifit control board from the main board. I did that and my problem was solved. Like spamslisher, we never use the ifit feature anyway so nothing lost there. Thanks for the really helpful tip. I doubt I'd have figured it out without you.
