Question about Nordic Track NordicTrack Treadmill, A2550
I had the same problem with my Nordic track. I pressed every button until I found the one that did not beep. The one that does not beep is stuck. My problem was with the Ifit button. The first few times I would push the bad button until it started beeping. That worked for awhile (couple of weeks but started up again). I disconnected the Ifit unit and now the thing work fine except for Ifit which I never used. Nordic track wanted to sell me a new console which cost more than the machine.

Here is how you disconnect the iFit from the main board. You will need a medium and small size phillips head screwdrivers and a flashlight. MOST IMPORTANT: UNPLUG THE TREADMILL BEFORE YOU BEGIN. Unscrew the multiple screws under the main console. You will have to be completely under it to do so. There are numerous screws all around it that are around the edge. Next, look under the handle bars and you will see two sets of screws. Completely unscrew the screw on each handle bar that is closest to the main console. Then partially unscrew the screw on each handle bar that is the furthest away from the main console. At this point you should be able to pry the cover away starting at the top. You will still have wires on both sides that will keep the cover from coming completely off. For the next part, you will need a flashlight. Once you have tilted the cover open, look for the iFit board that is directly in back of the slot where you would insert an iFit workout card. The iFit board is surrounded by a square holder that has a two-wire connector that is screwed to it. Unscrew it using the smaller head phillips screwdriver. Then lift one side of the square holder so that you can remove the iFit board from it. At this point the only thing connecting the iFit board to the main board is a flat cable. However both ends have been secured in place with hot glue. To remove the flat cable, slowly work the end that is connected to the main board back and forth until it is disconnected. Throw away the cable and iFit board. To test your work, place the top panel back in place without screwing it in. Plug the treadmill power cord back in and turn on the treadmill back on. It will now function without the annoying beeps.

The standard calibration procedure to calibrate an Icon treadmill is done by holding down the speed up and stop keys while inserting the safety key or putting the key in place (if magnetic). If your keypad is not responding, contact Iconservice dept. because your treadmill keypad has failed or the console computer has failed. In these cases, the keypad can be replaced in limited instances or the console has to be replaced. Call them @ 1-877-993-7999

I had experiences the same problem and resolved it by disconnecting the ribbon cable from the iFit output. I can't believe we were about to spend a few hundred dollars for a new console! Thank you so much for the advice.

Thanks for the suggestions. My Nordic Track C2500 would turn on, but continue beeping every 10 seconds or so, or if a button was pressed. The iFit button (the down button) appeared to be stuck. So pressing it (no beep on that one) appeared to release the console. If it happens again I plan to unplug the iFit from the console as suggested by Spamslisher. Thank you!

I had experienced a similar problem and resolved it by disconnecting just the ribbon cable from the iFit output to the processor board input. It was not necessary to remove the iFit board from the unit.

Had the exact same issue with the beeping. Removed the if Ifit board as stated in the previous threads it is working normally again. Thanks to all!

I also disconnected the iFit button and it works fine. I agree, just disconnect it from the processor board and it will work fine.

Ensure that the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surge suppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure the services of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proform treadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord.
Insert the safety key fully into the display. Treadmills with keys are designed not to turn on without the safety key in place.
Find the circuit breaker on the front of the frame and make sure it is not tripped. The circuit breaker is a vertical switch on the 540S and a horizontal switch on the 540 Interactive Trainer. Press it to the "Reset" position, which will be labeled.
2. Reed Switch
Unplug the treadmill and remove the safety key.
Move the upright base of the treadmill down with the help of another person and lift the uprights so that you can get to the underside of the console. Use a Phillips screwdriver with at least a 5-inch shaft to remove the screws. There are five hood screws on the 540 Interactive trainer and four screws on the 540S.
Remove the motor hood to get to the small reed switch by pivoting the hood off the frame. Find the reed switch and magnet, which are on the left side of the pulley for both models.
Turn the pulley with your hand until the reed switch aligns with the magnet. There should be 1/8-inch gap between the two. Fix the distance so that it is 1/8 inch by loosening the reed switch screw and sliding it to the correct distance. Tighten the screw.
Reverse the directions to put the hood back on and the treadmill upright in the original position.
