How old is your Nordic Track C1500?
Also does the incline motor move when you are in the calibration mode? or not?
Thank you for that info.
This sounds just like you have a bad motor driver board. That is easy enough to replace and requires no soldering just a couple of plugged wire clips.

Hi wow thats great news! Its rare but it can happen. Always with these types of electronic devices its always possible that there is a bad connection to blame, especially if the wires get pinched ;-)
BUT...if the cable was pinched and caused a short circuit to the motor driver board, that would likely cause the short and kill that board.
ALso the problem you are getting isn't the motor itself it is directly related to the motor driver board so I would replace that first and if the short didn't damage the motor which I think did not happen you should be in great shape;-)
Please remember to rate kindly so I can stick with you, also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you today.
Thank you and have a great day! Tech Michael
Hi yes that is correct, I was just trying to ascertain if that was checked prior to the pinched wires. Make sure the wires all have continuity using a meter. If you don't have one you can get a cheap one for under $20.00 from Radio Shack, Walmart etc. I will help you with the tests.
Please rate kindly So I can stick with you.once you do that we can also test the motor.
Once you rate my service, I will see that and reply to you immediatly so you knwo how to reach me until we have tis fixed as it shoudl be.
Hi I didn't see that, sorry.
The cable should be good in this case, the board is showing good, but that doesn't always mean it is ok.
But your next step is to remove the motor and tell me the specs listed on it voltage etc.
I will give you advice on testing the motor as well;-)
Hi sounds good,
Please let me knwo how it goes and I will reply to help you along.
Please also rate my service at this time so I can place your question on my priority list. That way we wont lose your question and I will reply to you so you know how to reach me in the future when you are ready to work on this;-)
Thank you and have a great weekend!Tech Michael
