Motor Controller Instructions

Please review the following important information regarding your purchase of a motor controller for your treadmill.

Most controller failures are a result of a power surge or worn walking belt. Damage to a new controller due to a worn walking belt or a power surge voids any warranty or return.

A new controller should be installed in conjunction with a surge suppressor. If this is not an option, the treadmill should remain unplugged between uses. If your treadmill is made by ICON, we suggest disconnecting power when not in use.

The following six (6) steps make replacing the controller very easy.

  1. Remove the covering over the controller.
  2. Remove the screws that mount the controller (LEAVE ALL WIRES IN PLACE).
  3. Mount the new controller to the treadmill.
  4. Swap wires one by one from the old controller to the new one.
  5. Calibrate (if necessary)
  6. Replace the plastic covering.

Many controllers require calibration before they will work or work properly. Refer to the tech sheet, our troubleshooting section online, or email us at doc@treadmilldoctor.com for calibration instructions.

For any questions or concerns regarding the installation of the controller please contact our support and service team at doc@treadmilldoctor.com.
