How do I fix a NordicTrack C2050 treadmill that has abruptly stopped?


see if you can remove the motor hood and look at the drive belt. it is a little belt from the motor to the front pulley to turn the walking belt. its either broke or fell off

My Sole f83 will not start. initially Fans run, can raise/lower. will act noemal until motor should run/doesn't. then raise/lower function stops. If I try to use speed buttons LS light shows. moto


LUBE or wax the deck belt, this happen because you do not have schedule maintenance according with the owner manual. The machine shut down for autoprotection in electronic system Do it NOW.
2) LUBe the rollers bearint too with WD-40 only for rollers
3) Test the drive belt motor, for worn or cracking belt, replace or adjust it
4) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair, see my personal TIPS for troubelshooting help.
5) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
God bless you

Stops after quarter mile


1) LUBE the DECK BELT, this happen for protect the electronic system, shut down. Maybe you have a WORN deck, to due the lack of maintenance according the schedule.
2) LUBE the rollers bearing too, very IMPORTANT.
see the video.

I bought a Reebok V8.90 with iFit cards. My problem is that the workout will stop multiple times during the workout. Then I have to start over. It seems that each time I start over I can get a little...


Dear Sir:

I hope your are very well in union with your family.

I will help you inmediatel.

Please do the following:

If you can walk on your treadmill but it shuts down during a workout, it is normally caused by a friction problem with the belt and deck.
Here are the most common symptoms and solutions:
1)
Symptom: The treadmill operates for a given period of time and the circuit breaker on the treadmill trips causing you to have to reset the breaker, or let it cool off then reset the breaker.

The amount of time required to shut down will progressively get shorter.

Solution: The walking belt is worn. The incline test is the best test for it if you don't have a way to take a
DC amp draw. Put the treadmill at full incline and walk normally. If it takes it longer to shut off or does not
shut off at all, you need to replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect the deck for wear too. If you want to
go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking belt. The best fix is to replace the
walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.
2)
Symptom: The treadmill will show power but after a given period of time, the treadmill will simply shut
down. Once you let it cool off, you can restart it back up but it shuts down faster and the time required
before it shuts down gets progressively shorter.
Solution: Your treadmill is most likely equipped with a heat sensor which shuts down the motor and/or
electronics to prevent them from burning up. If this is the case, replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect
the deck for wear too. If you want to go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking
belt. The best fix is to replace the walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.
3)
Symptom: The treadmill shuts down in an intermittent pattern...there is no rhyme or reason to when it will
shut down. I get an error code or nothing shows up on the panel. I have to either unplug the treadmill or
reset it to restart the treadmill.
Solution: If you get an error code, contact us with the code and make and model and we will try to help
you figure out what is going on. Typically we either find a loose wire, an intermittent short, a bad power
board, or a bad control panel in service calls that we do locally. Unplug your treadmill and then check all
your wiring to make sure nothing is pinched, crimped or loose. Remove and replace each connector in
case corrosion is causing.

Thank you in advance, sincerely. God bless you.

My incline stopped working a few weeks ago. Now I have another problem, I turn it on and the belt starts then stops.


The motor controller weakens over time because of the excessive amperage draw of the motor do to lack of lubrication (which wears the walk belt and walking deck).

Take an amperage reading of the motor it should be 2-3 amps with no one on it, with someone walking on it it should be around 6-12 amps. I would bet yours is elevated above 6-12 amps.The controller is dropping output because of the friction problem.

The first thing to try after testing the amperage is to lubricate the walking platform. Then retest and see if the amperage comes down and it doesn't shut off.

If it does then the next step would be to replace the walking deck. If the amperage still is up you may need to replace the walk belt second and finally if after replacing the deck and belt, if the unit is still shutting down replace the motor controller.

Machine shuts off when i press incline up. Belt and board look ok


THis sounds like a controller board problem. In many of the treadmills I have seen the same board controls the drive motor and the incline motor. If this product is under warranty have the company covering the warranty check it out. Anytime you buy one of these machines buy the extenced warranty. I was a field service tech for a warranty company. When you call in with a problem make it sound severe.. I have replace almost everything in one except the frame just to make a customer happy. I am not sure of the error message but i seem to remember it being associated with the controller.

It sounds like the belt is bogging down, this condition is when the treadmill operates normally without a person on the belt and then slows down when someone steps on the belt or when the treadmill operates normally for a given period of time with someone on the belt then abruptly begins to slow down.
The only certain way to test for a worn walking belt is to take a DC amp draw . Trying to look at the belt or a feel test is highly unreliable. Better tests, if you lack a DC ammeter (they are expensive for a good one), are a coast test or an incline test.
The coast test is to get on the treadmill as the lowest incline setting and walk on the treadmill at 3 MPH. Pull the safety key and it should take you 2-3 full steps to stop fewer steps indicate high friction.
The incline test is to put the treadmill at max incline and walk on it at 3 MPH. If the treadmill operates normally at max incline but bogs down at minimum incline, replace the walking belt. Gravity takes over for the drive system eliminating much of the friction problem. On some heavily worn walking belts, this test will not eliminate the problem.

I started up my treadmill after a year sabbatical :) to find that it stops abruptly when I increase the speed above 4 and then when I restarted it as soon as I stood on the belt the motor lagged & then...


If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift the edges of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Proform 765 treadmill slows down when step on. Do


Hi,

More likely time to replace the belt. Let me provide you with all the information you need. This information is already there on many websites.

BELT LOSES POWER
(Bogs Down or is Sluggish) This condition is when the treadmill operates normally without a person on the belt and then slows down when someone steps on the belt or when the treadmill operates normally for a given period of time with someone on the belt then abruptly begins to slow down.
There are four typical causes for this problem (listed in order of our experience:
1) The walking belt and/or deck are worn. (85% of the time)
2) The walking belt and/or motor belt are too tight- if you have adjusted either recently. (8% of the time)
3) The motor has lost torque and needs brushes or has demagnetized. (5% of the time)
4) The controller is dropping output. (2% of the time)
Walking Belt is Worn:
The only certain way to test for a worn walking belt is to take a DC amp draw (if you have a DC treadmill) or an AC draw (for AC). Trying to look at the belt or a feel test is highly unreliable. Better tests, if you lack a DC ammeter (they are expensive for a good one), are a coast test or an incline test. To test the deck, go back to the Troubleshooting section and download the belt and deck inspections instructions. The coast test is to get on the treadmill as the lowest incline setting and walk on the treadmill at 3 MPH. Pull the safety key and it should take you 2-3 full steps to stop (this is a general rule…some like a few Tunturi models stop on a dime even with a healthy belt but most this tests works well upon). Fewer steps indicate high friction.
The incline test is to put the treadmill at max incline and walk on it at 3 MPH. If the treadmill operates normally at max incline but bogs down at minimum incline, replace the walking belt. Gravity takes over for the drive system eliminating the friction problem. On some heavily worn walking belts, this test will not eliminate the problem.
Walking Belt/Motor Belt too Tight:
If you have adjusted the walking belt or motor belt recently, check for this problem. When the belts start slipping, some people just crank down the belts and on treadmills, tighter is not necessarily better. The
tighter the belts, the more the drive system has to work to keep everything moving. You should be able to lift the walking belt (with the treadmill unplugged) in the center of the treadmill about 3” without straining. Tighter belts should be loosen but make sure you don’t create a dangerous slipping situation by loosening.
The motor belt (with the treadmill unplugged) should be able to be turned by hand to almost a 90 degree angle from its normal operating position. Loosen the belt if too tight. Make sure to test for slipping and if it does with the proper tension, replace the motor belt.
Needs Brushes / Demagnetized Motor:
Typically when we find a motor that has lost torque; it needs a new set of motor brushes. Typically we can make brushes for almost any motor if we don’t already stock them. Motor demagnetization is not that common but it does happen and it is normally easy to diagnose. If you have confirmed the belt and/or deck is not worn and the belts aren’t too tight, you can test for a motor torque problem. DO NOT USE YOUR HAND OR ANY OTHER BODY PART TO IMPEDE THE MOTOR…YOU WILL LIKELY LOSE YOUR BODY PART IN THE PROCESS IF THE MOTOR IS GOOD. The step to test for the motor is to use a foreign object preferably on a long shaft. First determine the direction of the motor spin (most have directional movement printed on the motor tag), then apply pressure with an object with downward pressure on the flywheel in the direction the flywheel is turning (do not attempt to put force against the rotating direction of the flywheel as you can easily injure yourself). If you can slow the motor, typically you need brush replacement.
To test for demagnetization, the motor must be disassembled. Once you have the motor retaining bolts removed, remove the motor core by sliding it out of the end of the housing. If the magnets pull the core against the housing and it is difficult to remove, the magnets are good. If the magnets do not attract the core, the motor has to be replaced.
Controller:
This is the most uncommon of the causes. Typically replacing a controller in this situation will not solve the underlying problem and then you will end up replacing a belt as well as a control. Normally if a control is dropping output, it will do it with a person on the belt or not. Tests of DC output dropping is normal in many controls since they have a current limiter which will automatically drop output to prevent burning up the board. This is best diagnosed by eliminating the other possible problems first. If you are left with the control as the cause, replace the control.
