Very often people try to turn on the treadmill that has been in the garage several years and find this very problem and do not know were to start. Mark makes it very simple in showing what steps to take first. Ussually the first step is the hardest.

Mark Peterson once again delivers the best information and advice on dealing with a broken treadmill. Having this diagnostic information on the front end of calling a service technician is so helpful. Thanks Mark!
