The Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration

  1. Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)

  2. Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).

  3. Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.

  4. If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.

  5. Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  6. Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  7. Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  8. Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  9. Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."

  10. Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.

  11. Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.

  12. Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.

  13. When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.

  14. Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.

  15. If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step.

SOURCE: The incline setting on my Proform 550 Epic View is

The incline adjustment is done this way in your machine: a motor is attached to the platform with a hinge; at its shaft is attached a worm screw; on it there's a threaded bushing which is attached to a lever situated on an rotating shaft - when the motor turns the bushing is moved up the worm screw which pushes on the lever which rotates so it lifts the platform
If you can hear the motor turning but nothing happens it means that this mechanism is faulty:
1 - the connection between the motor shaft and the screw has broken - fix it
2 - the friction in the bushing and the joints is too much for the motor - clean and oil thoroughly the entire mechanism
3 - the screw or the bushing are damaged - replace them.
Unfortunately finding replacement part will be difficult -this is an older model that is no longer in production.

SOURCE: Incline reads 0.0 but is not all the way down

Renee, Here is how to recalibrate the incline motor. Read all of it It will be good to keep.
Plug in your treadmill, do not stand on the walking belt. Hold down the "Stop" and "Speed +" key and insert the safety key or magnet, let go of the two keys. Now press "Stop" key once. This puts you into the level 2 of calibration. Press the "Speed +" key slowly until you see 85 on the console, (at this point the display is going to show the percentage of motor usage and also the actual walking belt speed) at 85% motor usage your top speed should be between 10 and 10.5 MPH or (of 12 and 12.5) depending on the treadmill. You must know your treadmills top speed. (Important the motor may be damaged if you set the maximum speed higher than the maximum speed that your treadmill is made for). If the speed is higher than 10.5 or 12.5 then you need to turn the potentiometer down to the correct level. If the speed it to low you need to turn the potentiometer higher. Once the speed is correct you are done calibrating the speed. Press the (-) speed key to lower the percentage to (0). Next press the incline (+) button, this will make the incline motor go all the way to the maximum incline and come all the way down to the level position. Then remove the safety key and the treadmill will reset into the normal manual mode, when you re-insert the safety key. Matt

'05 1200 custom: left rear turn signal/brake light


Your bike is not equipped with the old style "flasher" like they used to be back in the '80's. You bike has what Harley calls a Turn Signal Microprocessor. It's a "black box" about a half inch thick by an inch and half wide by three inches long. It has a large plug with about a dozen wires on one end and a mounting bolt in the center of it. Exactly where it is, I have no idea as Harley moved these things around as much as they did the oil drain on the Sportsters. Underneath the battery is a bad place for anything, especially electrical components. The faint clicking sound you're hearing may be a circuit breaker. By the signals flashing very rapidly, this would indicate a high current flow that may be caused by a short circuit.

Good Luck
Steve

Repco fitness Treadmill error E7


This happened to mine, e7 is an error in the incline, meaning that the incline is too high or too low in the accepted range for the starting position of the treadmill. When the treadmill starts it looks to see if the incline screw shaft of the incline motor is in the correct position. If it isn't it gives the error message and shuts down. This happened to us after we had moved and the treadmill was bumped around a bit, this caused the incline worm shaft to move out of position, and that is why we got the error message.
To fix the problem I just took the cover off the motor area of the treadmill (WITH THE POWER OFF AND CORD DISCONNECTED) and located the incline motor, it has a threaded rod and a big nut coming along side the motor itself. It is the smaller motor. On the end of the threaded shaft is a plus sign cut into the shaft, so that you can insert a philips head screw driver into it and rotate the shaft. The shaft will rotate easily in one direction. Insert the screw driver into the end of the shaft and rotate the shaft so it goes as far into the big nut holding it as you can, don't twist it tightly, just make sure that the shaft has gone all the way in without binding, it still needs to rotate freely in and out. Put the cover back on and then switch it on. The treadmill should now start right up.

My treadmill proform835QT fails to incline. What can I do?


Try to calibrate the incline: Hold down the stop and speed up buttons at the same time then insert the key. release the buttons the press the stop button and release then press the incline up button. the incline motor should go all the way up then all the way down with - - on the console. If the unit only moves just a and inch or so or the motor just hums , the incline sensor is faulty.

Nordictrack apex4100i level incline will not work


Try this calibration procedure.
Turn the power switch on. Remove the safety key. Hold the Stop and Speed Up or Speed Plus buttons down then insert the safety key.
The display should show some numbers.
Press the stop key one time and the display should show some other numbers and some 00's. Press the Incline Up button and see if the Incline begins to move, if it does let it go all the way up and then all the way down, wait a few seconds after it stops, then hit the stop key 4 times. It should be calibrated. If it didn't move then the board or the incline motor is bad.

My car seat (which is electric) is not moving forward/backkward and I cant adjust the incline.


I had the same problem when my husband was waiting in my car and laid the driver seat down, Well, it got stuck in the recline position so I took my car to the dealership and they said the motor was going out, which cost about $100.00, if I remember correctly. He took the plastic housing off the motor and gave it a few sharp taps and it allowed just enough juice to incline my seat back. He said if I didnt use it anymore, then I wouldnt need to replace the motor.
