The treadmill will not come off of 10 for the speed. Runs fast at 10 all the time even after I turn it off, can not change the speed.


First of all check the Speed sensor and its position. If its ok the there is problem with the motor control board.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/

Incline problem


All icon models are the same. The easiest way to incline calibration is to start the treadmill, push the incline up button and then after you release the button, remove the safety key. Replace the safety key and the treadmill should calibrate.
If that doesn't work, press the stop and speed up buttons and hold, then place the safety key in place. This will bring you to the speed/incline calibration. Press stop again. now press incline up. This will run the incline calibration.
You may need to remove the hood and manually with a drill lower the motor. Using a slot screwdriver bit, lower the motor a bout 50 turns and then try the procedure above again if necessary.

I have an Ifit treadmill. I was changing speeds and it turned off and won't restart. It beeps when i turn it on but no lights on console.


Power issues with ProForm treadmills fit into two categories: the power does not turn on or the power shuts off when using the treadmill. If the power will not turn on, make sure that the treadmill is plugged into a working power outlet. In addition, you should use a single-outlet surge protector for the treadmill. Single-outlet surge protectors protect the machine from any voltage changes that may occur in your home.

If the machine is plugged into a working outlet, make sure the safety key is in the keyhole on the console. If the safety key is not plugged into the machine or if it is pulled out during operation, the treadmill will not operate.

Finally, make sure the circuit breaker located on the frame near the power cord is set to "Reset." The circuit breaker is set to "Reset" if the top of the button is pushed in. When the breaker is tripped, push it back to the "Reset" position and wait five minutes before powering on the treadmill.

If the ProForm treadmill shuts off during operation, check the power cord and circuit breaker as described above. You can also try removing and reinserting the safety key.

F85's "low speed" error


Dear Sir:
1) Lube the deck belt very well, as your instruction manual indicate for maintenance.
2) Try to Run software calibration after you fix it. For easy diagnose and troubleshooting.
3) The elevation motor can be faulty for lack of maintenance too, again Run the software calibration.

sincerely. God bless you

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

My Tunturi Treadmill ramp is stuck in the top elevation position and will not run. I get a "Auto Syncing" message, but the machine will not run. Have tried unplugging etc, but it will not exit the mode...


Enter the testing mode after switching the treadmill POWER ON by pushing first ‘SELECT’ and then ‘SPEED DOWN’ and hold buttons pressed simultaneously.
LED scanning mode for verifying display functionality Press ‘ENTER’ to scan DATA LINES to verify display functionality Press ‘ENTER’ to scan SACN LINES to verify display functionality Press ‘ENTER’ to scan LED’s to verify display functionality After pressing ‘ENTER’ the TIME window shows “test” and the keypad functionality can be tested (the value displayed changes when a button is being pressed) Press ‘ENTER’ to enter IO mode (TIME display shows lift motor potentiometer value, SPEED reads speed from speed sensor and DISTANCE shows heart rate pulse) Press ‘START’ to test lower board relay (a “click” sound) and then press ‘ELEVATION UP’ for 2 seconds to increase the elevation to 8%. Press ‘ELEVATION DOWN’ to decrease the elevation to minimum percentage 0% Press ‘SPEED UP’ to increase speed value and ‘SPEED DOWN’ toto decrease speed value. Press ‘ENTER’ to repeat above test or ‘SELECT’ and ‘ SPEED DOWN’ buttons simultaneously to return to the normal mode
The lift motor calibration is done manually by following the following steps: 1. Drive the lift motor to 0% from user interface (inclination display must be 0%) 2. Switch off the treadmill and unplug the power cable 3. Remove motor cover 4. Fold up the running deck 5. Loosen two screws (A) attaching the lift motor nut (B) to the incline frame 6. Adjust the lift motor nut (B) so that there is 9 mm (.358 in ) gap between the upper end of the nut and the lift motor frame Tighten the screws (A) and verify correct elevation by measuring Adjusting lift motor to 0% position 2.76in 12% position 9.646 in measurement taken from floor to bottom of motor compartment frame.

Fist off your treademill old and most likely they no longer make the parts. This was a unit sold at sears a longtime ago. Your buttons could be stuck at the top head board. you have to peel cak the membrane to un stick them. If not , then the lower board has blown. No repair for this. no replacement as well. you may to get a new treadmill. You may be able to do one more thing to work around the problem. I need to be paid someting to assist with that.
