I have nothing but bad new for you, I'm afraid. The console assembly itself is where the issue is. Something on the console board has shorted and that's what is causing the smoke. The console is sold as a complete assembly. The real issue here is that the console is no longer in production. I cannot locate one used, remanufactured, or new at any of the places we buy from or send people to.

The only option you may have is to contact CoreCentric Solutions to see if, by chance, they can rebuild the console. In a lot of cases this works out as a great option and is certainly cheaper than buying a new machine. Basically what happens with them is you arrange to have the console inspected by them and send it to their rebuild center. They inspect and determine if it can be fixed and they let you know the outcome of that inspection. My experiences dealing with them have all be positive and I've sent people to them for years and not had any complaints. Again, it's certainly worth a shot.

The only other option is to replace the whole machine. My wife runs a lot (about 2hrs a day) on our machine and we're looking to get a new machine since ours is pretty rough on my bad back. So I do understand what it takes to train for a 1/2 Marathon, you may want to look at a new machine. I show your model to be about 15 years old, which is about 5 years past the lifespan averaged by the manufacturer.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

A:

The console receives a signal from the reed switch (which mounts near the front roller) and uses that signal to compute the information it displays. If the reed switch is not mounted within 1/4 inch of the front roller or is not working, the console won't display any information.

Check the mounting of the reed switch and adjust it if needed.

You can test the reed switch by disconnecting it from the console. When the magnet on the front roller is close to the reed switch the contacts inside the switch are closed. When the magnet is not close to the reed switch the contacts are open.

Q:

maintaining treadmill

A:

Maintaining a treadmill is important to keeping you and the machine in shape. The owner's manual should have information about lubricating but it is possible the new belts may have some different maintenance requirement. While you wait for the expert to sort this out, I did find two other previous posts abount your type treadmill. Again, I am not sure if the information fits the new belt. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/128808-sears-lifestyler-80-treadmill-belt-slips-front-roller-pulley-replaced http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/206610-how-to-maintain-a-treadmill

Thank you for your question.

That is correct do not use silicone spray on the walking belt on the treadmill. You need to use the new belt lubricant. The part number for the new lube is 134591. The lube will come with the instructions for applying it and should be applied after 100 hours of operation. You just squeeze 1/2 the tube on one side and the other 1/2 on the other. Then walk on the treadmill to disperse the lube all over the under side of the belt.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
