1) Try to measure the if there are 110Vca in the terminal in forward or reverse.
2) Try to measure the ESR from Capacitor and replace it.
3) If you system as LIMIT Switch , test for continuity with DMM for faulty and replace, or some wires loose or disconnect.
4) If you system are Relais see if the relais for UP and down, and working most of them has LED that will be LIT indicating working or NOT
5) If NOT voltage Vca are NOT, coming from The Controller Board Motor, REPLACE IT,

If the is a Next Gen unit need to enter Diagnostic menu by pressing and holding pause then press clear twice. Continue to hold pause until until read service menu. press any arrow up and select system test ,then press enter the display will begin to automatically scroll thru available options. press enter to access Main Motor Module the next window will be Speed Automatic.
Upon entering this test mode you will able to check the drive motor and motor control board. By using the the speed arrows you will be able see the actual speed if functioning if not it could possibly be the speed sensor or wire harness ( SIMPLE CONTINUITY CHECK WILL RULE IN OR OUT THE HARNESS ) and point the problem. Now if their is no belt movement then hit clear and proceed over to SPEED CONTROL ERRORS hit enter this test allows seeing the motor controller conditions that are being displayed on the motor controller display if any of these come up then the controller need s to repair or replaced:
Max Temperature, Maximum voltage, Fault Line 1 error, Static current trip and dynamic current trip ( this also can a running belt tension this can result in a cannot obtain speed error message ) hit clear to get out of diagnostic once you eliminated the problem. Good Luck!!!

this happen because lack of maintenance schedule, shut down and produce enough friction and loud, and shut down for to protect the electronic systemLUBE Inmediately the deck belt,maybe is time to replace the deck belt. by WORN.
2) LUBE THE rollers bearing too
3) test the motor voltage input, if there are the MOTOR need REPAIR.see my persosnal TIPS.

it's a big job, the front cover protecting the motor unit has to be removed, the rear roller has to be loosened inwards by using the large allen key to release the tension. The front roller has to be loosened and lifted out of the treadmill (it may need cleaned to take away any rust)
The rear roller can be lifted out and then the bed (running deck) needs unscrewed (allen keys) this should slide out. The new running belt should be put in place in the treadmill, place the front roller in place, the bed and the rear roller, fasten each of them up and adjust the rear roller so that the belt runs straight and it tight enough that when walking on it, you can't stop the belt.

you must test the quick start button for defective, this is closed all the time, this connect the machine,and of course pass to RUn . You must LUBE the deck belt, for to avoid the system shut down.
I strong recommend try to RUN the software calibration Hunder the HOOD motor, for easy diagnose, troubleshooting, and fix it.
3) test the input voltage motor, if there are voltage the motor need repair.
4) test the output voltage boad, if there are NOT the board is faulty.

see the block diagram.
God bless you

A multimeter isa versatile tool for measuring voltage and current. Electricians usemultimeters to measure alternating current, or AC, and direct current, or DC,voltages and currents. Many multimeters also measure resistance, capacitanceand temperature. For example, an electrician uses the multimeter's AC voltagesetting to determine if a wall outlet has power or if a power supply isfunctioning. This knowledge helps the electrician pinpoint the cause of anelectrical problem and select the appropriate repair. Difficulty: Moderately EasyInstructions
