If your treadmill keeps shutting off then turning back on very quickly after, it could be an issue with its power supply. Simply check the power outlet where the treadmill is plugged in and make sure it`s plugged in correctly, and it`s secure enough to not move while the treadmill is on.
There should be a tiny hole on the side of your treadmill that is just large enough for a small wire to fit through. What is this? Once you locate it, get a paper clip and use it to press the reset button inside that keyhole.
Your treadmill is powered by a power supply. The power must be plugged into the power jack, which is located in the front of the machine near the stabilizer tube. Some treadmills have a power switch, located next to the power jack.

The short answer to this without going into a lot of detail about electricity and how it`s used by a treadmill is ALWAYS unplug your treadmill after each use.

This is likely to be a problem with the wire connection. We would suggest you check all the wire connections on the treadmill starting at the base of the machine and working your way up to the right hand handrail connection.
According to what the manufacturers say, the average life of a treadmill is about 10 years. However, if you take care of your treadmill properly and lubricate the belt regularly, you can make it last longer.
Check your outlet first, ensure the power cord is connected securely, that the cord and plug are free of damage. Now power cycle the machine by flipping the reset switch to off, then back to reset. Insert your key into the machine. If the power doesn`t come on test the outlet by plugging in another appliance.
Start by checking if the power cord of the treadmill is tightly plugged into the wall socket. If the treadmill runs on batteries, check if they are healthy. Sometimes, resetting the circuit breaker does the trick. You can reset it by unplugging the treadmill for about 1 minute.
Just keep in mind that some treadmills aren`t designed for use when turned off, and it could damage the motor. The best treadmills to use for deadmill walks are manual treadmills which are designed specifically for this kind of workout.

Hi, I have a commercial grade treadmill, the Technogym Run 600XT Pro that gives the error code E5 (incline fault) that I can’t get rid of. What happened was that after cleaning under the motor cover and turning the treadmill on again this code appeared. What had happened was a wire had come off what looks like a safety switch on the side which I assume trips if the treadmill goes too high. Put the wire back on now I can’t get rid of this error code. Is there a way to reset it from the console please as there isn’t a fault and it was working fine before the wire came off (it didn’t touch anything). Thanks a lot.
ANSWER : Hi.If there is incline fault, then the sensor must be calibrated. The error may happen even if you do not do anything. sensor goes out of calibration and you get e5. The only reset you can do is by disconnecting power and removing console batteries if installed (that depends on the treadmill model).I suggest contacting Techogim and following the procedure to calibrate the sensor.

Recently, I was using my Horizon CST 4.5 treadmill when the power on the treadmill and the room it was housed in went out. I reset the cicuit breaker and tried to get back on the treadmill. It turned back on, counted down from 3, and the time began however the running surface(track) would not move. I lifted the front end where the motor and belts are housed. I noticed that the belt was still intact. Unsure if motor is burnt out. Any help would be appreciated.
ANSWER : There is usually a small breaker on treadmills that pops out and you have to push it in to reset it. Take a look around the front of the treadmill and see if you can locate the breaker and reset it and the treadmill should work normally.

I have a Kohler Condidant 5 Generator that will run as long as you hold the start button in. It dies when you let off. I have a harness for the remote switch but no switch – It also will start the generator when you cross the red and black wire and run as long as you hold them together. There are 3 wires to the main switch and 5 to the remote switch. Does the starter stay engaged the whole time you hold the start switch or does the computer release the starter once it is running? The Generator is producing electricity because I tested it while holding the start button. Some where is a wire that shold tell it to keep running. I have read online many descriptions of the same problem, most are told the board is bad so they replace it and still have the problem. Have not found a solution. Talked to a marine machanic today and he said he fixed his friends generator doing the same thing by running a bypass wire but he couldnt remember exactly what he did it was a long time ago. Can anyone help me. Thank you
ANSWER : The problem is either the ballast resistor or the starter bypass relay. The bypass relay should be part of the starter solenoid. I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly where the ballast resistor is located. It should be a physically fairly large resistor made of ceramic. It should be retangular roughly 1.5″-3″ long and 3/8″-1/2″ accross with a wire on each end. It could also be a coil of wire mounted on a phenolic board.
If you need more help just add a comment and I’ll respond as soon as I get the message.

I have an 8100 ES Reebok treadmill. There is a squeaking noise coming from the drive motor. It is coming from the non-belt side (if facing the front of the treadmill, the left of the drive motor. When the treadmill is turned off, I can manually move the walking belt in the walking / running direction and it will squeak. If I move it in the opposite direction, manually it does not squeak. Also, if I need to lubricate the bearings can you tell me how to get to them to do this. The motor has plenty of power and no other problems, only squeaking. I have sprayed a belt lubricant on the belt and also blown it all out with a can of compressed air (used for computer key boards).
ANSWER : Hi.the bearings in these machines should be lubricated and sealed for life. they are not designed to be touched. it sounds like you have done the important bits. belt lubrication and blowing out any debris that may be there. squeaks like this can be incredibly difficult to find, but can also be incredibly annoying.the main things that you can do is keep watching to try and find exactly where the squeak is coming from and check for anything wrapped around the edge of the roller.keep using the belt spray, and the compessed air.a good grade silicone lubricating spray used at the edges of the rollers, by the bearings and around the motor and gearbox unit may also help but do not get this spray on the belt as it can be very slippery.squeaks like this can start and stop on their own or develop slowly and go just as slowly.keep doing the maintenance you are doing, and use the silicone spray as described above.it may take a little while for the spray to work its way into the bearings as they are fairly well sealed but you should notice an improvement after a few days.please feel free to ask for further advice if you need
