I have an E22 error code

Includes Keys, Ironman, Alliance, Milestone, Encore, HealthTrainer, some Smooth models, some CardioZone models, Galyans, and several other brands.

Meaning of code:
The walking belt is moving slower that the console is showing. Many times, the same symptoms can cause an E11 and an E22 error.

Step 1

The most common problem is belt/deck friction. If you have a belt that has too much friction, it can cause a wide enough speed variation to create an error. You can try our World Famous lube to help but eventually at least theTreadmill Walking Belt will have to be replaced.

Step 2

Before doing anything, check the drive system for a foreign object. A little "helper" can put a small ball in the drive system and you'll get an error code.

Step 3

Check the wiring from the motor to see if there is any evidence of charring, burning, or shorting in the wiring. Also check the motor for smells of smoke. An overheating motor will commonly have a smoky smell.

Step 4

Be aware of any noises the treadmill was making. If the treadmill had a screeching noise, the bearings in one of the rollers or motor could have had a problem. Read our help section on how to find a bearing noise to isolate which part is causing the trouble.

Step 5

Make sure the motor fan is firmly attached to the motor shaft. There are a series of "fins" on the fan that are read by the speed sensor. If it is not properly attached, you can get a bad reading. Also if some of the fins have broken off, a bad reading results.
