When you try to make achnes on the console, does it appear that the console responds, but just no motors?

Ir do the buttons change noting on the display when you push them?

Thank you

No change on the display when the speed or incline is touched.

Thank you for that information.

This is unfortunately a bad Console. If the display would show a response to the command, then it would just be the motor driver board. Which isn't very expensive but the console is quite a bit more. Unless you have an extended warranty you will need to replace the console. Its easy to do if you are just a lil handy and have a few basic hand tools. I will help if you need e, no soldering is required it all just connects with color coded wire clips. But I would take a pic or two before removing the wires so you are sure where they all go on the new exact replacement Console should you choose to replace that part.

The best place to get a new console for your machine is:

I wouldn't attempt to order using the site as there are many different consoles, rather I recommend you call them and let them pick the part for you, this way you get the correct console the first time ;-)

Plus, they ship the same day yo place your order;-)
