Q:

Treadmill making an unusual sound 831297272 Lifestyler Lifestyler expanse 2000 treadmill

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your treadmill. Upon researching model 831297272; you can apply treadmill lubricant to reduce the friction between the treadmill board and the walking belt. If by applying treadmill lubricant the sound goes away then the unit just needed lubricant, if the sound continues then one of the components is not in place correctly causing more friction and wearing out, this rubbing part would have to be identified to fix the problem.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

The flashing it does lets me know it is receiving a signal from the controller board, so we know the harness is good. On the harness going to the console there will be a red and black wire next to each other. Check for DC voltage across those 2 wires and it should be around 12VDC. If that voltage is there then the console has failed. If the voltage is not there, then the controller board is likely the problem.

The main problem with this situation is that both the controller and console are no longer in production (and haven't been for some time).

I'm afraid this may be the end of the line for your treadmill. But do unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood to check the harness plugs to make sure they're secure. If that looks good then I'm afraid it's not something where replacement parts can be had to make the fix.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Wade... I am having the same exact problem with my Lifestyler 2000. However, I getting a clicking from the relay switch on the power supply board. When you refer to the "controller" are you referring to the motor control board or the power supply board. Orginally, I thought there might be an issue with the power supply board, but after a close inspection, I see nothing wrong with the power supply board. Any input would helpful. Thanks. -John

You are correct. controller = motor control board. These older machines have a controller and a power board. The newer machines have an integrated controller and it's the only board. With yours if you have a relay clicking on the power board you may be able to tap on it while it's clicking and get it to connect. If not you will need to replace the relay, if you can find one. The power board (like the controller and console) is no longer in production.

Funny... I actually did replace the relay from and I am getting the same clicking noise ( i replaced the relay prior to reaching out to you). Now the treadmill has not beenin use for almost two years, prior to that it worked fine. It's been in my basement (dry). Is there a way I can test the motor control board to see where the issue is?

A:

typically a relay clicking is either due to it's not making contact or low voltage. But it could be "short cycling" for some reason. You'll need the tech sheet to check the voltages into and out of the controller board. That should be in the motor compartment on your machine. I don't have a copy of the tech sheet for this machine. If your machine is doing the same thing as the original post then it's safe to assume your console stays dark when you try to power up. Check for voltage going up to the console. Check the schematic but it should be a black and red in the harness going to the console. There should be about 12vdc between those 2 wires. If that voltage is not there (and I'm betting it's not) then check the voltage going into the controller to see if you have power to the controller board. I'm thinking you will find no voltage there, meaning the problem is withing the power board. But it's possible that voltage is going into the controller and the controller is the problem. With that clicking relay on the power though, I would be the problem is with the power board.
