Bowflex 7 Series Treadmill Control Board issues


I recently purchased a used Bowflex 7 Series. Prior to the new owner sending it to me, we verified it worked as expected, however, after installing it in my home, the belt will not turn and the motor is making no sounds. I have bump tested the motor, and I'm getting 15 DC volts at the prongs that you connect the motor to on the control board when the unit is powered, but not operating (thus telling me the board is providing power). However, the treadmill will not start. I attempted a calibration, and the manual said that the PWN should be between 170-200. However, the test is showing a max of 90.

Would that be a sign that the PWN on the board has failed? Would the PWN being that low result in the motor not running? Is this a normal thing to have fail? It was working normally days ago prior to the move.

I saw that you have a listing that you do repairs on this board:

Can you confirm this can be repaired?

Thank you!

Thank you for reaching out. Almost any component that is not within range will cause issues. These ranges are necessary for the total functionality of the treadmill. This would be the same as having a bad or low-voltage battery in your vehicle. It can cause a host of other issues.
/a> You can use that link and we can take a look. I'm not too sure if we have full testing with this board like we do others however, we can test every component and ensure the board is receiving and sending power. This includes the ICs
