Dear Sir:

Wacht this video:
1. Power
o 1 Ensurethat the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surgesuppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surgesuppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure theservices of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proformtreadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord. o 2 Insertthe safety key fully into the display.

Dear Sir:

I hope everything is right.

I will try to help you.

Please be patience, carefully, and use basic tools+Dvom.

See the videos:


If you can walk on your treadmill but you get a burning smell from it, you have a bad problem and discontinue use immediately and unplug the treadmill.

Burning smells are most commonly associated with the following problems:

1) Very high belt/deck friction.

2) Short in the motor.

3) Short in the wiring or electronics.

4) Literally cooking the lacquer or cardboard core (on cheap machines) in the motor from belt friction or a drive system


Friction is the #1 cause of this problem. Many cheaper treadmills have a motor with a cardboard core (people wonder why we are so

down on cheap treadmills) and if the voltage and amperage through the motor heats it up sufficiently, it begins to smolder. If this is the

case, you normally have to replace the belt and the motor and inspect the deck. If the armature has cooked enough in the motor, you

also have to replace the motor.

If the belt and deck check out OK, check for a short in the motor. You can run the motor with an independent power source like a fullycharged

cordless drill battery to see if the symptoms are the same. Click on the following link for our motor test.

If the belt and deck check out and the motor is OK, then check your wiring and electronics for signs of scorching and replace the

appropriate part(s).

D) Controller:

This is the most uncommon of the causes. Typically replacing a controller in this situation will not solve the underlying problem and then

you will end up replacing a belt as well as a control. Normally if a

control is dropping output, it will do it with a person on the belt or not. Tests of DC output dropping is normal in many controls since they

have a current limiter which will automatically drop output to prevent burning up the board. This is best diagnosed by eliminating the

other possible problems first. If you are left with the control as the cause,

replace the control.
If you need additional help, please reach me, sincerely. God bless you.
