Thanks Alina, the second link is similar to my problem and I think I could use some of the information on it, but I can not make out the pictures of the wiring diagram posted by Lyle W. Hopefully, someone can post with a picture that has better resolution.

I  know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your treadmill.  From what you are describing, it sounds like there may be an issue with the console connector.  If this is not connector properly, it will cause the control panel to malfunction, but the incline will still work.  Disconnect the connector, and turn it around, then reconnect it.  If you are still having problems, I would suggest that you schedule service.  Our technicians are the only ones with a copy of the wiring diagram. If you would like to schedule, just click on this link:  Sears Home Services.  I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

AnneJ - Thanks for your response. I checked the two plugs that go into the back of the control console from the control board. I thought they could only be inserted one way because of the protrusion on one side of the plug to prevent being installed incorrectly. I will check those plugs again though. I have seen some other posts where the wiring diagram, schematic, or flow chart diagrams had been posted and thought I might be able to better troubleshoot even the correct plug connections between the boards if that were available. Being that this piece of equipment is, at best, worth $150 and a service call from Sears would be at least that much, I don't see a service call as a viable solution for this problem.Thank you again for your input.

Ed, I am sorry that I was unable to provide this for you. I did find an image of the wiring diagram, but the quality is very bad, and there is no way for you to enlarge it. This is why I didn't include this. I also checked all of our resources to see if they had one available, but again, nothing. This is why I suggested the technician, but seeing the service would cost more than the unit, I would suggest buying an new one. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

I have a PRO-FORM exercise machine Model 320x. The speed is erratic. Can you tell me the problem?

A:

Several things can cause the speed to be erratic on the treadmill. I suspect the walking belt is dry. To test the belt lubrication, do not turn the treadmill motor on. Set the elevation to the highest level. Stand near the front of the walking belt. Push yourself firmly toward the rear of the treadmill. If the belt is properly lubricated the belt will take you to the rear edge of the treadmill and dump you off on the floor. If you move and stop, the belt needs lubricating.

The part number for the belt lubrication kit is 219168. You can buy it at [www.searspartsdirect.com]. The cost is around $4.00. The application instructions should be in the package, but in case they are not here is how to apply the lubrication.

Turn the walking belt until the belt seam is along the top of the front roller. Raise the belt on one side in the center of the walking board front to back as high as you can. Apply ½ the tube of lubrication to the walking board in a zig zag fashion moving from front to back. Move the belt until the seam comes up on top of the rear roller and lift the belt again and put the rest of the lubrication on the walking board in the same manner. Turn the treadmill on and walk on the belt for 10-20 minutes. Walk all over the belt to distribute the lubrication evenly on the walking belt and board.

If the belt tests good in this test try calibrating the console to the motor controller. I am sending you an image showing the instructions to calibrate the treadmill.

I have the same machine. Unplug the power from the machine. Open the plastic cover that contains the motor. Phillips screw driver about 6 screws to remove. Check the tension on the belt. If the belt is loose adjust with a wrench to tighten. This is very similar to a fan belt on a car. After tightening the belt test the machine. When putting back on the cover make sure you get it on correctly especially around the area that does not use screws as it will give you problems especially when elevating. Good Luck.

That should take a 3/16 size Allen wrench to adjust for the belt tension. You can go TO THIS LINK for directions on how to properly adjust the walking belt on your model.
