No model # just purchased and recd 11/16
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 5 months ago

I'll need to know which model you have. Can you see a model on the packaging, or receipt, or user manual?

SKU-NO:Y3520S
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 5 months ago

Ok, so you have had the machine a year and it has never powered on or worked, is that correct?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No I just got it 11/16/17
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 5 months ago

Ah, ok!

And there is no sign of life from it at all? Any sounds or beeping?

Do you have a voltmeter available to carry out some checks?

I plugged it in the on/off switch lights up and when I put the safety thing on and I click the prog run it thru the zeros then press start nothing happens. It is not getting the message back to the motor hope this makes sense
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I can check voltage too
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 5 months ago

There may be a loose wire between the base and the console - can you check all wiring connections first?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I will do that again
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Undid the connections (2) replaced them still belt not moving
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The plug has been tested it tested out. We could not get a reading on the signal wires
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 4 months ago

The speed sensor (reed switch) may need adjusting - can you check it, and adjust if necessary?

Ask Your Own Exercise Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
All checks out. May I take the motor area and panel apart to see if a wire is loose?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Since I wrote last the motor housing got very hot and smelled like something was burning unplugged and took outside. I think this is hopeless
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 4 months ago

Ok, in that case I suspect that the motor has a fault - you should contact the retailer to arrange a warranty return.
