Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete part or board number of the "...control module..."

Icon / Proform / Sears Exercise Treadmill Motor Control Board 184695 184695R-ICN-R-12, and we have adjusted the reed close to the magnet - it is still stoppint
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Appreciate the additional information.

Proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done):

  • • check for voltage output from the control board to the motor;
  • • verify pulsating continuity of the reed switch; and
  • • test the motor using a car's 12V battery .

A friendly reminder: voltage measurements b y its very nature requires that the unit is plugged in and the circuit powered up. It is therefore LIVE! Please exercise due care and caution.
