My treadmill gives a click sound when i press the start button and the belt does not move.The Panel works perfectly fine with all the readings showing without any issues.
Most treadmills will produce some sort of error code if everything is ok in the the lower control board, but you get no response from the motor when pushing the start button.
First verify the motor is functional. I use a 12v 9ah battery commonly used in a Vexlar fishing system, but I have even used the connection points on my cordless drill battery to make a run. Using one of these small power source will make the motor/belt move, but you will be able to easily make the belt stop if you were to step on the walking belt. The point of the exercise is to verify the motor is operational.
If the motor is operational and the unit still does not throw a code or recognize there is an issue, then you can feel about 90 percent confident it is the lower control board under the hood that supplies power to the motor.
The “click” is often some capacitor opening and attempting to send power, but another path way on the board is holding the system back.
Lower control boards go out commonly. They can just have a defect or they are the result of too much stress.
