How to calibrate a Vision Fitness Treadmill - Residential Models

If you are not quite sure about the speed/elevation of your machine you can perform the following to test/correct your Vision Fitness treadmill.

1. Remove safety key and then replace
2. Hold the elevation up and speed down buttons until it beeps 3 times
3. If you see the model of your treadmill on this screen make sure you hold enter and then you will see "eng1"
4. Use the elevation buttons to scroll to "eng4" and hold enter to select
5. you should see the word "auto" on the screen at this point
6. Making sure you are not on the treadmill at all, press start.

The treadmill will go through a few tests to determine the maximum and minimum of both speed/elevation. You can see the results on the display as it is performing this test and if there are any discrepancies the machine will adjust the settings to make the appropriate speed/elevation calibration.

If the test passes it will display "end" and from here just remove and replace the safety key. You should notice a difference in the speed right away.

I have a vision T9500 treadmill. My husband was recalibrating and it got stuck in the highest position and is displaying E5 in the window. Any ideas how to get it down?


hi,
Try AUTO-CALIBRATION first. For that do the following.

With the safety key in place, turn the treadmill ON . Press and hold SELECT. Now you can perform auto-calibration by pressing START.

(The treadmill will run through minimum and maximum speed and elevation. This will take 3 to 5 minutes. Let the treadmill perform this complete function. "END" will appear when auto-calibration is complete. When auto-calibration is complete, it will take about 30 seconds for the treadmill to reboot and return to the start-up screen)


If it doesn't help then the motor control module is faulty. You have to replace or repair the motor control module.

OK

hi i have a vision fitness 9450 hrt and i'm getting an error message: E6


Typically an E6 error message indicates that the machine needs to be recalibrated because the elevation motor is out of range or that you have a loose cable connection. Below are the auto calibration instructions. Please make sure that no one is on the machine because it will speed up quickly.


STEP 1 ENTER ENGINEERING MODE

With the safety key in place, hold "ELEVATION UP" and "SPEED

DOWN" buttons for 5 seconds. Software version will appear in display

window for a few seconds before model displays.

Press "STOP" , "ENG1" will appear in display window.

STEP 2 AUTO-CALIBRATE

Press "ELEVATION UP" until "ENG4" is displayed.

Press "SELECT" , display will read "AUTO".

Press "START". Unit will calibrate, when finished "END" appears in

display window, then "ENG1".

STEP 3 EXIT ENGINEERING
Press and hold "STOP" to exit engineering mode


I would also suggest that, with the power to the machine off, you check all of the wire connections underneath the motor cover, the assembly connection that sits where the mast meets the console and underneath the faceplate. Check to be sure that all of the connections are secure and that the pins within the cables are seated properly.

I have a vision fitness T9450 treadmill. My wife was using it and it slowed to 2mph. That is all the faster it goes now. Elevation controls work fine and everything else functions.


first thing to do is to enter the calibration mode. First remove and replace the safety key. Press and hold the elevation up and the speed down buttons until the machines beeps at you 3 times consecutively. You should also see either the model "9450" or the software code which varies from machine to machine. You should now see one of two things - "eng1" may be displayed in which case just use the elevation keys to get to "eng4" and hold enter for 3 seconds - then press start - this will calibrate your machine and confirm if there is any speed reading issues.

If your machine displays more numbers as it would on the deluxe and premier consoles of this brand then you should see the model of your treadmill at the top left. hold enter from here until "eng1" appears and the perform the steps as above. If the speed is not calculating properly during the calibration the magnet or the speed sensor may have been moved or the magnet could have gone bad - usually slowing to one speed and not changing is the sign of a bad speed sensor. If the control board had any irregular voltage it would shut down as a safety precaution.
