Issue: My running belt does not move.

Resolution: Check cables or loose wires:

  1. Double-check that all connections are secure, especially the console cable. Unplug and reconnect the console cable at the top of the console mast – see the assembly instructions in the owner’s manual for this step.
  2. Make sure the console cable is not pinched or damaged in any way.
  3. Turn the power off, unplug the power cable and wait 60 seconds. Remove the motor cover. Wait until all red LED lights have gone off on the motor control board before proceeding. Next, verify that none of the wires connected to the lower board are loose or disconnected.


Resolution: Check running belt and deck

A worn belt and deck can contribute to premature motor and motor control board failure.
