Treadmill Troubles

    I have a Horizon Fitness TSC5 treadmill with very low usage. Have had
    2 circuit boards fail on me now. The manufacturer says the treadmill
    should be on a dedicated outlet. Would failure to do this cause the
    circuit boards to fail? Also - since I have 2 of these expensive dead
    circuit boards - is there a way to have them repaired? The
    manufacturer doesn't repair them. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated.

    I'm not familiar with your particular treadmill, but if it's the motor
    control board, then look for MOSFET failures. If the MOSFETs are
    failing repeatedly, then look for a motor problem.

    If you can post photos of your boards on your web space, then someone
    may be able to help you.

    Keep in mind that treadmills are large appliances and really should b
    on dedicated, non-switched, non-GFI circuits (without anything else o
    the same line). It is highly improbable that this is the main cause o
    the problem. I hate to be the harbinger of bad news :( but Horizo
    is not exactly top notch. Aside from that, unlike TVs and Microwave
    today that can take a good punch, fitness equipment in general ar
    very susceptible to things like power surges, low/high voltage an
    brown outs. You should keep it unplugged when not in use. Assumin
    its not power related worn or faulty parts may cause excessive strai
    on the electronics. There are several possibilities, the most likel
    being a worn out running belt and deck
