E6 treadmill motor inclination error

 Treadmill incline motor for E6 error

The E6 error is normally related to the missing/incorrect reading of the signal position of the inclination motor and derives 99% from the motor tilt and problems in the connection because the motor board passes the signal directly to the console, without any modification. They are therefore rare cases of errors E6 dependent on the motor board.

The steps to follow are for treadmills with an Astar type board (it may not be the same for all consoles).
1) press reset + incline down to enter engineering mode
2) press mode 4 times to get into test mode
3) press start to start
4) incline up and down to test inclination

if it moves up and down, check if the ADC value changes (if it does not change, it means that the motor inclination signal is interrupted – a broken wire or bad connection)
if it does not move, usually the motor connections are wrong, check however if LED 2 or 3 turns on.

The board calibrates itself when powering up so it can the treadmill can move by itself when it connects to the new board if signals don’t return.

Through the console in some cases it is also possible to adjust the tilt but this adjustment only affects the console and the tilt motor (it may be necessary when changing the
inclination motor). Note on some boards for this purpose there is a special LEARN button.

One last note. The
tilt motor has a thermal sensor so if you start to go up and down to test the tilt after a while of going backwards and forwards the motor warms up and goes into protection, giving the same error code.
