Hi my name is ***** ***** your having an issue with your treadmill. Here are the steps I use to diagnose the issue you are having.First check all connections from the console to the motor control board under the motor hood. Make sure there aren't any broken wires, not fully plugged in connections, bent pins in the connectors, etc. You can also use a meter to test for continuity across the full length of the wires to save time. Then do the following after that:1. check for 120 volts to your motor controller and from the controller to the console should be 9-12 vdc Usually the red and black wires in the harness.
2. check for dc voltage from controller to motor should be 80-90 vdc volts when start/run is pressed
3. if no voltage out - controller is bad
4. if no voltage into controller - check for bad on/off switch or breaker, test outlet and check wiring.
5. if there is dc voltage to the motor, test the motor by doing the following:# get a 12-18 volt dc battery fully charged(like one from a cordless drill)
# Make sure it is fully charged, because it won't work if not
# attach the + and - to the motor red is + and black is -
# If the motor turns slightly your motor is ok, if not the motor is bad and would need replaced
# if the motor is ok then your motor controller(the board with the metal) is malfunctioning and would need replacedPlease don't forget to rate my answer because that is the only way I get credit for it. Thanks for trusting me and please come back if you have any further questions.

it just started. I had an issue where the belt flipped over on itself and in doing so the circuit breaker blew. When I got the belt back in proper order, and trend the treadmill on, the motor goes on for one second and then off. I've taken off the bottom cover and can see the LED light...it is on before I hit "speed" on the console, then goes off when the treadmill motor goes on, then blinks rapidly every other second after that. … read more
