SOURCE: Pro-Form Sport 1000 treadmill does not stop inclining

Do a Calibration on the treadmill. Take out the safety key. With 2 fingers, hold down the stop button and the speed up or spped plus button. keep holding them down as you insert the safety key, then let go of both.
Press the stop button 1 time, you should see all 0's in the windows, or EP 2P or something weird like that.
Press the Incline up button and then wait. If the incline go up until it stalls then down until it stalls the stops at the bottom, the you are recalibrated, take out the safery key and put it back in to see if all is well. If the incline takes off up again without touching a button, the you have wiring problems or control problems. Call service company to get it repaired.

SOURCE: Proform 550xp Treadmill in continuous incline/decline mode!!!

i just called the manufacturer on this and found out i have a faulty control panel, but these are the steps they told me to go through to reset. If it works, then you are good, if not, you may also have a control panel issue.
1. plug in and turn on treadmill, keep red key out
2. press and hold the stop button and speed up button at the same time and hold them while you insert the red key
3. after red key is inserted, let go of both buttons
**CAUTION - be sure to stand on side bars of treadmill, clear of the belt for this next part bc it will go VERY FAST***
4. press stop button once
5. press speed up button until it reads 85 (see what i mean?!)
6. press stop button once
7. press incline down or up one time and it should get back into normal mode. mine just started a series of flashing lights and "8"s in all the "windows" so my panel needs to be replaced. here is the number i called - 1-877-993-7999. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Treadmill incline error

Try this, it fixed it for me, if it doesn't work let me know
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIIxoPtvhy8

I bought a used Precor 9.4 treadmill, but the incline adjustment was not working.
So, I did the following.
1. Turn off, unplug the treadmill and wait for an hour (this is for safety
2. Remove the black motor cover
3. Observe the transformer to the right of the motor and towards the belt ( I point to it in the video)
This transformer converts DC electricity to AC electricity and the AC current goes directly to the Incline motor which is in the black box towards the front of the machine.
4. On mine the wires had come loose from the transformer, they were soldered on very poorly, the wires are stiff and you should be able to see 4 wires coming from the top of the circuit board and plugging into the transformer, I had three of the 4 wires loose.
5. If you are not comfortable working with electronics or soldering DO NOT DO THIS REPAIR, you could get shocked very badly if you just go poking around in there with metal objects, get a friend who knows how to solder or hire someone.

6. It took about 5 minutes I just heated up my $10 soldering gun from radio shack and soldered all the loose wires that were about a millimeter away from the tabs on the back of the transformer, and VOILA! The incline now works!

True Treadmill Errors and Service Messages
  • The True 600, 700, 725 and 750 series treadmills are equipped with built-in diagnostics and maintenance reminders that display either an error message or service message as they occur.

    • E2:OVERSPEED
      • This occurs when acceleration greater than 2.1 mph occurs as this is greater acceleration than anticipated.
    • E2:CAL
      • This means feedback cannot reduce or increase speed to target and error can be cleared by calibrating treadmill.
    • E3:EEPROM

Treadmill is stuck in incline postion and can not put down. screen says error


Unplug the treadmill. Remove motor cover . Look for the incline motor, follow the wires coming from the incline motor to the controll board. Starting from the top you will see a red,white and black wire. Under those wires you will see a white and black ( do not remove the lower white and black). Remove the red wire and the black wire . Swap the positions. Plug the treadmill back in and turn with the safty key in place.. The treadmill should go back down. Once it's down . Remove all 3 incline motor wires from the controller. This will get it back down so you can use it. It will still give you the incline err , just press stop to bypass it. As for what is causing the problem , a number of thing can cause this problem. I would call sole and ask for a tech in your area unless you're in NC you could call us. Good luck

Why is my true 400p stuck on maximum incline and will not lower?


It is likely the connections to the incline motor are loose or the incline motor itself is faulty. Refer Troubleshooting section in the manual which you can download from this site.

The treadmill is stuck on "incline." Any time we put the red key on it to turn it on, it just keeps moving up and down from 0 incline to 10. It does this over and over again without stopping. No...


I can't solve this, but my Nordic Track T5 zi occasionally does the same thing. The previous two times, I waited until the unit "bottomed out", and then pulled the mag switch (key) off. I unplugged the unit, then plugged it back in, attached the key, and all was well. This worked twice before, but today (3/8/2011)the unit's incline is cycling again, and the old fix isn't working. Maybe it will need to go back to Sears! Unit was purchased in October of 2010. Frustrating.

I have a Nordic Track EXP 1000X treadmill and the power incline doesn't work. What should I do? How can I fix it?


Probably 85% of the time, it's the sensor.



1. remove the screws from the bottom of the enclosure case. 2 or 3 in the front and 1 on each side

lay it back down, and power it up, and actuate your incline. watch the end of the motor, to see if the shaft is moving. It probably IS turning but only a little bit. NOT enough. In this case I'd say it is the sensor.

2. Unplug the unit of course.
3. the incline motor is in the middle of the pack,..you'll see a black tube looking thing sticking up.
4. on the bottom side of this, you will see,..or feel for a black square sensor attached to bottom of the motor casing.
5. follow the wires and unplug this.
6. pry it off with a screw driver. Remove incline assembly, if you cannot reach it.
7. replace sensor and try it again.

if the MOTOR does NOT turn when using the incline buttons, the problem backs up to possibly a bad control board. or a bad motor on your incliner, however, i'd say that's the last thing to go.

Order of failure: 1. sensor 2. control board 3. motor.

good luck

My nordic track treadmill won't decline


My wife had the same problem with her treadmill. I turned the beast on it's side, and unscrewed the plastic casing that houses the motor, computer, and all the electronics to the treadmill. I unplugged the incline/decline motor. Then on the bottom of the treadmill the long threaded rod that causes the incline needed to be moved. So I unbolted it from the catch, and manually screwed the rod back in with a wrench. Now the treadmill works fantastically, of course the incline/decline mechanism has been disabled, but I would rather have a treadmill with the incline disabled than have one always on 100% incline. Hope you found this helpful :)
