Hi there,

If the motor is working when connected to a battery but not when connected to the treadmill system, then the controller board is suspect. First though, check all cabling and ensure nothing is loose. Then try using a voltmeter to test the power output from the motor controller board - if it is not good, then the board will need to be replaced.
