Problem with a treadmill (Pacemaster ProPlus ii)...motor controller?

Hello all,

I'm having problems with an older Pacemaster ProPlus ii. It's been giving me an error code 24 indicating that there is a belt frozen error. The motor does not keep a steady pace at low speeds and will turn off on occasion (triggering the error code).

I have lubed the deck and I still see that this happens, though less than before. I have learned that the problem may lie in the motor controller (Aerobics Inc. 9501001 RevJ) and I can find replacements for $350-ish on the internet.

I can replace the controller, but am worried about doing so since the cost is high and that there is no guarantee that this would solve the problem.

Any advice?

Welcome to the forums!

I moved your question to a different forum where I believe it will probably get more views and replies.

Let me see if I can find the link to the treadmill fixer that I've dealt with. He's very knowledgeable about all brands and their problems.

Might be later this afternoon.....stuff to do.

Ahhh...found it....Treadmill Troubleshooting Help ....at least I think thats it.

I called this guy about a specific problem MC 70 Treadmill Motor Controller MC70 - Home...but that doesn't seem to relate to your issue?


Good reading anyway...lots of tips and info.

Honestly, on an old treadmill, I would look into replacing rather than repairing.

pacemaster

I have a proselect, bad drive motor but many of the same parts. if you want, we can try to put one working treadmill together by trading/selling parts.

First, the OP has not been on the forum since February 2. Second, this forum is not a buy, sell, or swap forum.
