My treadmill keeps blowing a fuse inside the machine everytime

This answer was rated:

My treadmill keeps blowing a fuse inside the machine everytime we turn it on, why is this ?
The fuse is blowing because there is a failed compnent in the circuit the fuse is feeding. It's doing what it is designed for, protection form a melt down. For you to actully fix this your self is probably not going to happen. This will take a trained technician to track down the fault with a meter and testing. YOu are going to have to find a electronics technician at a repair shop. Maybe I can help you find the right person. What is you zip code?

Do you have any way of finding an electronics technician there in the area. I'm not sure I can help you in the UK with this? Not sure how to find a local expert?

Do you think it could be the rectifier on the circuit board
It sould be, yes, but it's only a guess. I would have to test things to say for sure. You have to use a meter and test the components and find out what is going on.
You may be able to actullly see the porblem if you look very close at the boards and wiring. Look for a pinched wire or a black spot from a fault.
