Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.Most of the Roger Black treadmills use a DC motor.The motor has brushes inside which allow it to operate and when the brushes are worn or damaged, it can spark immensely.They need to be checked and replaced.If you can supply the actual model number, I should be able to locate spare replacements online and provide a link so you can see what is needed.Do not run the unit with it sparking, it can damage the motor. Thanks
