Fet error is caused by the drive component(s) on the motor control board going open circuit or faulty. This is caused by poor power supply or excessive friction on the running belt which in both cases leads to excessive heat build up in the control electronics.
The Motor controller will need to be repaired or replaced and the heat issue resolved.

What to look for with the mc2100?


Hi There.....that's slightly vague, as it depends on which circuit(s) aren't functioning, like the console lights? Yes? Motor runs? no? There are no "simply replace these 3 parts" and you're fixed, but I can tell you a couple things.... there are "lethal" voltages/currents on these controllers when powered up, and a failure to catch "all" electrical issue's before retesting can cause a total "rip" as we call them, meaning you literally "rip" all replaced parts and those leading to and from the root cause issue ;o) For no/excess belt movement check the main switching FET for problems, if problems found, you must check the kickback-diode for problems it can experience if/when the FET rips. If both are toast, you must go back to the driver IC and verify that is good, and if good you need to go back to the micro to verify it is sane ;o) You can find repairs and refurbished motor control boards by emailing gregATbuyfitnessrepairpartsDOTcom
