Death by treadmill

Hi all,

was using my treadmill earlier and when I put on incline it completely died on me.

I opened the front and found a blue lead to what looks like a circuit board had come out of the circuit board. Do I reconnect it to ACN or FG on the circuit board. The orange lead is connected to the ACL on the circuit already!

This is only a guess - because without the wiring circuit diagram it is anyones guess.

Logic would suggest that the AC L = live and the AC N = neutral.
FG = could equate to ground or earth.
And so the blue wire would go to the neutral.

You could of course ring up the treadmill helpline to see if they can point you in the right direction.
My only involvement with this type of equipment has been to replace a circuit board when one of the capacitors went.
It worked! Your logic was correct and I am grateful for your help!!!!! :D

when I put the treadmill on incline the lead was stretched and it popped out, so I just hadn't a clue.... then hubby electrocuted himself trying to fix it this morning, so he said a big thank you to you also!!!!!
