Question about Exercise & Fitness
I cannot find my user's manual for the treadmill. I've tried unplugging it; turning it off/on; etc. I've pretty well pushed every button a few times and nothing happens.
I went through one of the pre-set programs (start to finish) with the hope that the incline would at least drop when the program was finished -- it didn't!
I remember that this happened once before, years ago, but am stuck with a poor memory and no manual - help!
MAKE SURE YOU STAND TO THE SIDE OF THE TREADMILL WHILE PERFORMING THIS
1)Connect the wall power to the treadmill
2)Remove the safety key
3)Hold down the red stop button and red increase speed button (this is the red triangle next to the start button)
4)Insert the safety key while holding both buttons down in step3
5)The treadmill will now go into a diagnotstic calibration mode
6)Let go of both buttons in step 3 and press the oval stop button once
7) Now press the up arrow green incline button once(This is located to the left of the yellow program button)
8) Allow the treadmill to go through a calibration cycle, once it completes and stops moving remove the safety key count to 3 and reinsert.

I had the same issue with my Proform XP590 and resolution was to run through the re-calibration as described by the technical document found under the hood. The Pro-Form customer FAQ helped me out. http://www.iconservice.com/index.html

I have an Epic T60, six years old-- bought it at costco. Was messing around one day and ran it up to 12 % and it stuck. Researched about calibrating the inline, the incline motor and the incline sensor. I got home and tried to recalibrate the thing and it didn't work. I removed the motor cover and took it apart (on its side). I found that the instructions available on the web for changing the incline sensor were accurate but what happened with mine was the screw that held a washer on the end of the threaded auger shaft had snapped with the pounding of running when the treadmill was at 0%. I took the incline motor off, tools were 14 mm wrenches only. I had to take the threaded rod out of the motor gear system and take it to my shop and drill out the old screw. Then I used a tap and created new threads in the end of the rod. I used a 5/16 bolt to replace the broken screw and put the thing back together again. It seems to word perfectly. I had to recalibrate it though. even though the new bolt is bigger, It calibrated fine.

Have a Nordic Track Model #A2050. Same problem as jimmohn posting above. Incline stuck in up position. Fix by removing the jack-screw (pin & clevis) on both ends, manually unwinding screw out of shaft and replace with new screw & washer. The screw size is M6 x 3/4" long (metric). Instantly solve the stucked incline problem.

This worked for us: turn the beast on its side. You will see the motor with its screw bolt all the way extended from the gearbox.
Now, have one person follow the instructions for calibration (hold stop and speed+ while inserting safety key, and then pressing stop once, then incline button up). We took a hammer and gently tapped the gearbox as we heard the motor engage and it the screw bolt started turning and took incline down to zero.

I have a Nordic Track T7Si and turning it on this morning resulted in the elevation to the highest level of the incline. The display kept stating "calibration" and flickering between 0 and 1. Steps to remedy it.
2. Trip the reset switch (not sure if necessary, but I did it)
3. Step to the side of the treadmill and plug it in.
4. Push START and SPEED UP buttons together
5. Insert safety key
6. Push STOP after a few seconds
7. Incline will return to zero
