    I do not think so since all other data are working fine. I cycled in the rain in the past with no problems.

It can be reset by pressing the 'Mode' and 'Reset' (lap) buttons at the same time.

In addition, please make sure that the device has the latest softwareversion available. To update the software, please use the followinglink:

Or try the following with the unit switched off.

  • Press and hold the mode button whilst powering up the unit.
  • You will see a message "do you really want to erase all user data" select yes.
Once you have done this leave the unit with a clear view of the sky to update a fresh almanac.

Hi, I would remove the battery, overnight to reset the unit, and get a new seal for the unit,or take it to a watch repairman and have him fit a new battery and seal to it for you. He will also clean the switches and so on, return case integrity to the unit. Happy to talk to you more about it.

regards

It is quite sure the water might have gone into the unit that might be causing it.

    I think you should take the battery off the unit and then use the hair drier to dry it completely.
    hope this will fix the issue.

    i want you reset.

    Turn the unit off.
    If you cannot turn it off, due to a "lock up", leave the system
    the drain the battery.

    With the unit "OFF"

    Press and keep holding
    the "MODE" button

    Press and keep holding
    the "POWER" button

    Release the "POWER"
    button

    Release the "MODE"
    button

    The unit will ask
    if you are sure you want to perform a full reset (you will loose all
    stored data)

    Reply by pressing
    "ENTER" button.

    The unit has now
    been reset.
    Let me know the status ....Kevin.

How do I calibrate elevation grade for treadmill?


Hey there, sorry to hear you're having an issue with your elevation motor. I would be happy to help you solve the problem.
Since you already installed your motor you can go straight into diagnostic mode.

To get into Diagnostic Mode on your L8
Make sure to turn off your treadmill.

-ET's - Press Menu and Start at the same time
-CT's - Press Manual (or Display^) and Start at the same time
-All other L SERIES mills - Press Display (or display and Start at the same time

SideNote-
-*CT's that were manufactured after 09/2003 - Press Display and start at the same time.




Few things you want to do, if you haven't already.

A. Align the motor with the clevis mount and install the motor mounting pin.

B. Insert hitch pin.

C. Reconnect the elevation harness to the lower board

D. Set the lowest limit switch by holding the UP elevation button for 5 seconds. Then press and hold the DN elevation button one more time to make sure you only hear a click.

E. For L7/L8 machines; Thread the elevation nut to where its flush with the threads on the "worm' shaft.

F. Mount the elevation nut to the leg assembly by lining up the holes on the leg assembly. You may have to move the leg assembly so that the holes on the elevation nut line up. Then slide the two elevation pins through the elevation assembly and into the elevation nut. then secure the pins with the 2 set screws.




To calibrate your potentiometer you can try to adjust while it is installed but for best results you must calibrate it before its in your motor housing.







G. Calibrate the elevation potentiometer and to do so you must;
1st: Visually confirm treadmill is leveled. (0% grade)
2nd: Adjust the settings as follows;
All L SERIES millls should read 0.0
3rd: If the setting is incorrect, follow these steps.
Step 1: Turn the post of the potentiometer all the way
CLOCKWISE.
Step 2: SLOWLY turn the potentiometer COUNTER
CLOCKWISE until the setting is correct.

H. Carefully install potentiometer into the motor housing
*NOTE: The setting may vary when inserting the potentiometer
into the motor. As long as the change is minimal, fine
adjustment can be achieved by rotating the meter
while inside the elevation motor.

I. Press OFF to turn treadmill off. Then restart the machine in manual mode to TEST elevation after resetting your potentiometer. As long as the change is minimal, fine adjustment can be achieved by rotating the potentiometer while inside the elevation motor.


For more Diagnostic features and possibly further detail, I will be attaching a Link to your machines service manual. I hope this helps, always hear to help. SportSmith.

Home a/c intermittent during rain


You need to check the contactor. It sounds like the contacts may be getting close to the end of their usefulness and they are welding themselves closed. Check that and let me know what you find.

Total elevation gain consistently way too high (20+ percent)


I have the same garmin, and have the same problem.
The high changes even during flat runs so when added you have this overamount of climbing.
I just reduce the points of the track and then the addition is more accurate.
My problem now is that the GPS stops working during runs (turns itself off). Awful!!!

ETX125 PE new model. Elevation has totally stopped.


Could be that the DEC motor driver has died. That could be verified by swapping the connections between the RA and DEC. If the DEC now moves, then that is the problem. If not, then the DEC motor is bad.

Data for excel chart


You need to create subtotals so that it looks like something like this:

Prod/units Amt. Level Total

xxxx 10.00 1
yyyy 20.00 1
30.00

dddd 40.00 2
ffff 30.00 2
70.00

etc.

To do this I would suggest using the Pivot Table feature of Excel. It is not too hard to use but you do have to know what you want and also have to be sure you are getting results as expected. Like any tool, it has to be used right. You can also use sub-total functions supplied in VBA as well in your cells.

If you want to avoid using VBA functions in cell and deal with ranges, etc., use the Pivot Table Wizard.

Some reading:

http://www.microsoft.com/dynamics/using/excel_pivot_tables_collins.mspx
http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/excel-pivot-tables.htm

Also Google "Excel pivot table wizard" to get more.

Good luck!
