    I had an old treadmill that was obtained to scavenge the motor and electronics to use on a lathe project. The motor worked , and the speed control worked. Now I have it apart and went to test it, and (naturally) it doesn't work. Does anyone have a schematic for this unit? I have tried Google with no success. I think I have some really simple problem, like a safety wire that is unplugged. I don't see any disconnected wires, but I am a bit leery of messing with it too much since it has 120 vdc and 15 amps cursing through its veins.

    Thanx for the help.

    Does this treadmill have a "dead man" switch? It'd be easy to overlook once you had it apart.
