Nordictrack Treadmill Reset Tips

We hope that our Nordictrack device – whether it’s a treadmill or an elevated one – functions without any issues. Despite the troubleshooting steps you may have implemented for your treadmill, you may find yourself needing to reset it at some point.

Are you familiar with the process of resetting a NordicTrack Treadmill?

Nordictrack Treadmill Reset: How Do You Do It?

When restarting your treadmill for home use, you have two options. If the treadmill includes a restart button, the instructions differ from those on treadmills without one. The steps to take are:

Press the Reset button

If your treadmill has a reset button, follow these steps:

  • Turn off the power source or unplug the cable before disconnecting. If the power plug is left on, the restart won’t be finished.
  • For safety reasons, Nordictrack running machines require a key to function. To start the console software, you need to find the hole and insert the key.
  • When the system is activated, a restart icon will appear at the bottom right of the screen. To reset, plug in the power cord.

Once you have restarted the treadmill, press the button on the initial page. This will reset your device’s settings and interface.

The Reset Button Is Missing

If you cannot locate a restart button on your running machine, take the following steps:  Alternatively, if you can find one but are unable to use it, use this method.

Immediately unplug the safety keys. Ensure they are taken out before proceeding if they remain connected. Keeping them plugged in will prevent a successful restart.

Locate the speed and stop buttons, then press and hold both of them at the same time. If successful, keep them held or try again.

Hold the stop and speed+ buttons for an extended period, then activate the running machine and re-insert the safety keys. After insertion and activation, you can let go of the stop and speed+ buttons.

Before resetting the incline settings, you must click the pause button. Then, use the inclination + button to increase the treadmill slope. Finally, press the inclination – (minus) lever to reduce the incline.

If the console presets and inclines on your home running treadmill have not been restarted successfully, remove the safety keys and try again.

After resetting the running machine, why hasn’t it been fixed?

Even if you successfully restart your workout machine, it may not always be the settings causing the issue. It could be a hardware problem that’s causing the same problems.

Examine and check regularly the basic hardware components for minor issues that can be corrected by yourself.

  • Verify the central cable of your treadmill for any slack links or locks in the line. 
  • Examine the black and red wires on the terminal container of the incline engine to determine if there are any issues. 
  • If they both fail, the incline engine is not getting sufficient voltage on one aspect only. 
  • You can utilize a meter to ascertain if the incline motor of your system is getting appropriate voltage. 
  • Inspect the voltage lines from the console to the main motor and the voltage lines from the board to the engine.
