Customer Question
belt until I press 3mph...
I have a vision t9450hrt treadmill that will not turn the belt until I press 3mph or higher. When it does engage, it seems to be turning slower than normal. I tried the auto calibrate and it would not begin turning, only the elevation worked properly.
JA: What's the exact make and model of the treadmill?
Customer: Vision T9450HRT.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Just noticed it. I tried other outlets. I tried to autocalibrate. I opened the cover and checked all wires.
JA: Anything else you want the equipment expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

The treadmill is about 14 years old, but has worked great up until just recently. The motor sounds the same as always. I took the cover off and observed the following. When I press the 1 & 2 mph buttons, it doesn't start. If I press the 3,4,5 up to 9 it starts just fine. It seems slower than it should. This is all with no load on it. When I do step on it at 5mph, it maintains the speed, just seems slow. I tried listening and tightening the belt to see if it was to tight, but that didn't do anything. I did notice when I was on it that with each step the light in the room on the same circuit would flicker. I tried other outlets not on the same circuit and still experienced the reduced power.

Thank you for that information.

This is a bad motor control driver board. Its easy to replace with just a few basic hand tools;-)

I will help if you need me.No extra cost there;-)

There is no soldering required, this board just simply has plug in wires to connect.

The best place to order a new motor driver board is this website: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/vision-fitness-treadmill-parts-c-200814_200815.html

But...since there are so many different boards, I would call to place this order so you are sure to receive the correct board.

Please call:
