Digital screen reading different than actual speed

We purchased our treadmill about a month ago and I have been using it everyday for about an hour or so. Just recently after I would turn the machine on and press the speed select buttons, it would not read the actual speed. For instance if I press 3 the screen will read 4.8 and if I push 10 which is the highest it should normally go, it will go up to 16.1 and who knows how fast the thing is actually going.

The speed reading on my epic 55o treadmill quit working. I can see what the new setpoint speed is and the treadmill accelerates/decelerates to the new speed but the actual speed always reads 0.0. This used to work but quit working recently.


Under the motor cover, on the left side mounted on the frame is the speed sensor.It is a little black "bullet" shaped thing clamped to the frame with a wire wrapping around the frame to the electronic board. It may need to be adjusted. Move it as close to the pulley as possible without making contact. If it still doesn't work, inspect the pulley for the 1/2 inch round magnet. It is mounted on the pulley. If it is missing, it may be attached to the metal frame someplace. Place it back into the holder on the pulley and try the treadmill again.If you still have no speed reading, the sensor will have to be replaced.

The digital touch screen display is not showing up. The screen is illuminated but no words are showing. I just purchased this treadmill and have used it twice. It's brand new! Any suggestions? The fan options and sounds work and I can adjusts the speed and incline with the other buttons but the digital display functions aren't showing up, even when I insert the ifit card.


What your seeing is a common problem which I encountered on 3 separate displays. I have since diagnosed the problem and am currently life-testing a working solution. The real problem is very poor design of the negative voltage generator circuit for the display contrast. Everything else is working fine except that circuit. I have designed and installed in my treadmill a replacement circuit that is much stronger and am currently testing it. zubatcha@gmail.com for more information

I just bought a secondhand treadmill a few weeks ago. i noticed that while i was mid-walk, the treadmill would just stop for no apparent reason. and then about a week ago, the treadmill matt stopped moving all together. i have read the manual and it says that the treadmill shouldnt be connected to an extension lead and/or shouldnt be shared with other appliances such as computers, tvs, etc. i actually did have the treadmill connected to an extension lead (because i had the treadmill too far away from a power point) and moved it to plug it directly into a power point. but the matt still wont move. the screen still works and it beeps and everything- the matt just wont move.... any tips on what might be wrong and how i can fix it?


The motor controller is shot and will need replaced.

Hello. I have an 8700 es treadmill. The keypad for adjusting speed, incline, start and stop are not responding. The power is fine the digital screen lights up, but when i hit start, speed or any of the buttons nothing happens. Help Please.


A capacitor is embedded in the circuit which keeps a charge to run the this unit. A capacitor is used for holding extra voltage needed to run all the working functions at a higher voltage. The display works off a very low voltage which is provided by the invertor plug into the wall socket. Whe a capacitor goes bad itwill show a hairline crack in it. The crack provides the voltage to leak out since the seal has been broken.Capacitors are sold at Radio Shack amd electrical suppy stores. Yours will have nubers on it with the letter u between the numbers. That will be the item number needed for replacement if done by you

Knocking noise I've got a new Nordic Track Treadmill, and anytime we go over 4.5mph, it starts knocking, like a loose screw or something. I checked it over, and I can't find any loose screws. Almost like the attachment between the digital screen and hand supports to the actual track is not together the way it should be. I have never assembled or disassembled my treadmill as we loaded it onto our truck as is from the store. Any advice?


Unplug unit open motor shroud , then replug unit , start the unit up then place tip on to the a 6" length flat screw driver tip on the front roller shaft put your ear on the insulated end and you should be able locate the knocking noise also check the motor and rear roller you insert tip where th adjustment is made. I believe that the front foller is causing your problem. Go to iconfitness.com go to customer service then replacement parts you will find your M# and pricing

Keys Fitness Elite treadmill turns off after 12 seconds, it shuts off and code E11 appears. I read the tech support page on their web site and perform the calibration sequence. Once I got to the last step where it tells you to push the power button twice, I get a F in the speed screen. Please do not cut and paste the manuels, because i have already tried it. I have checked for any lose wires and there is no dust around the motor. I have already read the web page and manuels and tried those suggestions. I need assistance on why I am getting the F error code after calibration.


Most likely you have a defective encoder, part number 408-00024. That's the part label 94 on the parts diagram in your manual. Take a look at it and see if it turns freely and the connection are tight. If it does turn and the connection appears OK, you may try replacing it. You can order the parts at (888) 340-0482. It won't cost you a penny if it is less than a year old. They probably will ask you to go through what you have already done though.
