It's either the electronics console overlay -- this thing often goes on this model -- or your motor is shot.
Have you ever seen it working?
Repairs can expensive.
You can buy an excellent replacement console electronics part for $100 (http://www.treadmilldoctor.com/Nordictrack-Console-Keypad-Overlay) , but if it's actually the motor, then you've still got more to spend.
In home service can easily run $150 for the call plus cost of parts.
If you decide that you're not going to try and get it repaired and you're going to toss it, I'd like to buy some plastic housing parts off that non-working unit from you. Please email me directly.

Hello there, The calibration mode for a nordictrack is as follows.
With the safety key out, hold the stop and speed up arrow at the same time while inserting the key. Release the buttons. You will then be in diagnostics.
You then press the stop button one time.
If you are trying to calibrate the incline you just need to hit the incline up button and the machine will do an incline calibration. The unit should go all the way to the top and return to the bottom when completed.
If you need to calibrate the speed you will need to press and hold the speed up button on the console until the display reads 85. The machine should then be running at its maximum speed (either 10 or 12 mph depending on the unit)
The display will show a speed on the console and should be within .3 of the maximum speed.
If it is not then it will need to be adjusted using a potentiometer on the control pwb.
To access the control pwb open the hood cover. Should be 3 screws in the rear of the cover and 2 screws on the bottom of the unit.
Once inside the cover locate the control pwb. On the control pwb there will be a yellow/orange potentiometer. This is the adjusting part.
Use a non-metallic phillips head screw driver to adjust the potentiometer either clockwise for faster or counterclockwise for slower.
Hope this helps!
Good Luck! Tim

Testimonial: "Although I haven't attempted this solution, but it makes perfect sense and will attempt it as soon as I get back to the treadmill - Thank you"

Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the current over load circuit to activate thus shutting down the unit to prevent further damage, Go to your local hard ware store and purchase silicone spray. Apply Lubricant by lift one side of the running belt spray contents length wise starting at motor shroud to the back end repeat this process on the other side. If this unit shut down again then you will have replace the running belt and possibly the deck
