Unplug he power cable of the treadmill and check for any damage, most of the times it gets stuck under the elevation level under the motor and the cable tends to get stuck and damage.Now you may check the power outlet by connecting any electronic equipment to confirm there power wall socket is good. If you are using a surge protector then try to connect the treadmill directly in the wall socket just to make sure the treadmill gets direct power and make sure the power switch on the wall and the teadmill is on.
