On this unit that indicates a bad top console.

Its easy to replace and I will work with you when you have the new one.

Before you unhook any wires, its a good idea take a few pics of the wiring so you are sure when it all goes back lol;-)

You wrote to me to change my console; l checked on the treadmill doctor site the price of a new console and they did not have my part number and even if they had it, it is too expensive because l'm not sure if it is the real solution to my problem. So please cancel my order 'cause l had a 7 day free trial. Thanks for your help anyway.

Hi good morning, I have many years of experience with this treadmill. I am sure beyond any shadow of a doubt that the console is the problem. I know it is an expensive part. But that is because it is the heart of the machine and controls all of the operations.

Treadmill Doctor can usually get that part in if they are out of them. Hopefully ypu called them as they can get this part for you, all parts and availability are NOT listed on site.

I can cancel this but to do that I need you to rate my service up top kindly. Once you do that I can close this out and will let Customer service know that you would like a refund. They are very good about this kind of thing lol.

Have a great SUnday and please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you

I also have other sources for that part.

SIncerely

Tech Michael
