True Treadmill - sudden acceleration

by Lisa Tucker
(Dallas, Texas)

I used a True Z6.1 treadmill. The treadmill suddenly accelerated out of control, threw me, I broke both shoulders. Has anyone had a similar experience with a True treadmill?

Not thrown off, but almost
by: Anonymous

My Horizon treadmill had randomly started to instantly speed up on its own to full speed then stop.

Luckily I've been able to jump to the side every time this has happened.

Thank you for this site as at least now I know what might be happening.

Horizon T50 Sudden acceleration
by: Bert deVries

I too was thrown off my Horizon T50 treadmill when the motor control board failed, and it instantly accelerated to full speed. I was wearing the stop cord, but that didn't prevent me being thrown off. Luckily, I didn't break any bones. The Horizon T50 is a very sturdy treadmill, but the electronics are unreliable crap.

Sudden acceleration
by: BLeigh

I have a Horizon Treadmill digital series DT850 that suddenly accelerated to top speed. Lucky I had the stop cord attached to my body. I am a senior and hate to think of the damages to body if thrown off. Of course it is out of warranty & I can't get any answers from the store.
$800 bucks plus & this lady is outside walking at a much slower pace.

Treadmill sudden acceleration
by: Jack Tracy

I represent a woman who suffered the exact same injury as the result of the exact same occurence on a Star Trac machine. We believe when the motor control board is defective the machine defaults to the highest speed. Contact me for more info Jtracy@tracyandstilwell.com
