MC2100 LED ERROR CODES FOR NORDICK TRACK, WESLO, PROFORM TREADMILLS


In this video we show the different error codes on Nordick Track, Weslo and Proform controllers.

If you need a new controller or a new motor, please visit us at https://www.partsfortreadmill.com

An unlit LED indicates that the controller board is not receiving power. Please check that the machine is plugged into a power outlet and that the reset switch is in the on position. If the machine should be getting power but isn't, please try turning it off and then back on. You may also try plugging another device into the outlet to make certain that the outlet has power.

A solid lit LED indicates that the controller board has power. If the belt has been started but it does not move, please check to make sure that the upright wire harness is connected and not damaged.

A steady blink indicates that the controller board is receiving a speed signal from the console: if your  walking belt is not moving check the wiring from the controller board to the drive motor.

If the blink pattern is one blink followed by a pause before another blink then the controller board has gone into fold back (protection) mode the motor may be seized, the walking belt may be worn, or the walking belt may need more lubrication.

To check for a seized motor, turn the walking belt by hand if you are unable to turn it your drive motor has most likely seized.
If the blink pattern is two blinks followed by a pause and another set of two blinks, then a wire has become disconnected from the controller board. Make sure that all the wiring to the control board is connected securely.

If the blink pattern is three blinks followed by a pause and another set of three blinks, then the drive motor current has exceeded 34 amps turn the treadmill off and back on. If the problem persists you will need to replace the controller board or the motor.

If the blink pattern is four blinks followed by a pause and another set of four blinks, then the
controller has detected a bad switch, turn the machine off and back on. If the problem persists the controller board will need to be replaced.

If the blink pattern is five blinks followed by a pause and another set of five blinks, then the controller cannot resolve the desired speed. Turn the treadmill off and then on, if the problem persists the controller will need to be replaced.
If the blink pattern is the Morse code SOS, then the controller board needs to be replaced.

Problem: Treadmill motor spins freely | sliding sensation while walking on treadmill

In this video we see a treadmill motor that spins freely

 
The problem, in this case, is that the transmission belt doesn’t get a good grip on the pulley of the engine itself. To solve this problem, you should
  • clean (degrease) the two pulleys well (to prevent dirt or grease from slipping the belt)
  • slightly pull the belt by adjusting the position of the engine, or
  • you can replace the drive belt with a new one, which you can buy in our shop specialized in belts and treadmill parts https://www.partsfortreadmill.com .

Note: in some cases the sliding sensations may be related to other aspects of maintenance, which you can check here: treadmill maintenance
