MC-2000E treadmill Motor Controller LEDs troubleshooting

The MC-2000E motor controller has four LEDs that can be used to help troubleshoot electrical problems with this treadmill. Each LED, and its meaning, will be described:
15V- This LED indicates the controller is outputting 15 VDC needed by the controller Iogic circuit. If this LED does not light when voltage is applied, replace the controller.
SPD SIG- Indicates a speed control signal is being received from the console. The LED will flicker as the speed signal is received. If this LED does not light when speed is set above 0.0 MPH, but 15V does, it indicates a problem with the speed wires or console wires
GATE- Indicates that the controller is attempting to respond to an incoming speed signal. If this light is out, no voltage will be sent to the motor. This LED will vary in brightness depending on the speed setting. If this LED does not light when the safety key is inserted and SPD SIG is lit, the controller will need to be replaced.
HV BUSS- This LED indicates the capacitor on the controller is charged and is sending voltage to the drive motor. It will only light when both the SPD SIG and GATE LEDs are lit. http://www.partsfortreadmill.com/

    1. Check power socket and cable. If all is fine and no light turns on, then you should replace the controller. You can find replacement here: http://www.partsfortreadmill.com/treadmill-controller-mc2000e.html

  2. Hi. I have a low 15V LED light. What does this indicate?

    Thanks.

    1. If the treadmill doesn't start and you see it has a low light it may be needed for you to replace the controller. You can find a compatible controller here: mc2000 controller

  4. Hello
    My power board PWM LED flickers as expected when the start button is pressed on the console but the SPD SIG does not flicker as expected, on the motor controller. The belt does not move either. The speed signal appears to be lost between the power board and the motor controller. Any ideas? Would a new motor controller board fix the problem? Many thanks in advance! Jackie

  7. Oh gosh, sorry for posting three times - didn’t mean to!
    Thanks for getting back to me too. Are you saying I need a new motor controller? As the 15v led is on, I assumed it was ok. Just not sure if the electronic board is the power board, motor controller or something else.
    Thanks again

    1. if the engine does not start it means that the electronic board is broken. can try to disconnect the belt and run the engine by feeding it with a 12 volt battery. if the motor runs it means that the problem is the electronic board

  8. The belt does not move at all, so I guess it is the controller board - is that the same as the electronic board? I’m a total novice so apologies but I just need it spelling out so I order the right thing!
    Thank you very much

    1. Yes it is the controller board that is next to the motor
