This morning I hit the start button and it starting running at a speed of 1.5 but no other buttons would work. The stop button, the incline button or any of the speed buttons would not work either. Could not increase or decrease speed or change any settings or turn off the fan almost as if one of the buttons was stuck. Only thing I could do was remove key and it stopped working and then would not restart. This same thing keeps happening if it sits for a couple of days or weeks it will only come on but not be able to adjust anything. I am almost ready to give up. But the technician we hired to come look at it was not a nordic track specialist so he gave up and said we have to purchase a new console which is over $400.00.

My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

If the problem is intermittent it may just be due to loose wiring - check all of the cable connections, ensure they are securely attached, and look for any signs of damage.

Also check for any stuck buttons on the console.

If the cables are good and there are no stuck buttons then the fault is within the console and it will need to be replaced.
