To test the motor: Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood. Take the motor wires off at the controller board. Connect a volt meter to the motor leads (so motor is connected to meter) and set the meter to read dc voltage. Now put the safety key into the treadmill and start to walk on the belt. Manually walk the treadmill up to 3mph and the meter should read no less than 28volts DC. If the voltage at 3MPH is less than 28 then the motor is bad. If the voltage is more than 28vdc at 2mph then the motor is fine.

         

I suspect the motor is just fine and that your problem will indeed be with the motor controller. The motors on these machines do not fail very often, it does happen but it's not common. If you do find that the motor is bad when you test it, I would seriously consider replacing the controller as well. Generally if the motor does fail it will also take out the controller. When the controller fails it's not common for there to be other things along with that. Typically a controller failure is limited to just the controller.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the treadmill. This model has a control that has to register the speed. If it does not register the speed within a certain amount of time, it will shut down. I recommend checking the reed switch located on the left side of the front roller. The magnet on the front roller pulley triggers the reed switch. Turn the roller so the magnet is aligned with the reed switch. The end of the reed switch should be about 1/4 inch away from the magnet. If it is further away than that, adjust it closer. While you have the hood removed, check the reed switch connection on the control board. Then check the operation of the treadmill. If it still fails, you will need a volt ohmmeter to do some voltage checks. If you have a meter and feel confident making voltage checks, please let me know. I will be able to assist you further.

A:

I have a copy of the owner' manual and parts list. I need some help on how to diagnose which part specifically is not working correctly. Can I check any voltages on the Motor Control Board for which part might be the culprit, or maybe some voltages coming into the incline motor or the photo switch? Thanks!

A:

This is most likely a problem with the board but you can check the photo switch on the inline motor just to be sure it is not broken. Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood. Locate the photo switch on the inline motor and make sure it is in place and that the little disk is clean and not broken.

If that all looks good then I would say it's the controller board causing the problem. Typically it would be a stuck relay on the board but since it's an integrated board, the whole board must be replaced. The controller is part number 241697 and may be purchased HERE .
