Customer Question
My Nordictrack X9i is stuck...
My Nordictrack X9i is stuck at an incline. The moment I turn on the main switch, the incline motor will run and keep on running while the incline stops at the highest level. Any suggestions? I have tried the calibration but the motor keeps on running.

Hello Armando,

The incline motor sensor is suspect if the motor keeps running.

Check that it has not fallen out of place or been moved somehow.

If it is in the correct position then it may have failed and will need to be replaced.
