You have to put the safety key in if you want to select speed/incline or predefined programs.
It starts and runs at full speed on that occasion because it's part of the maintenance process, that lubricates the inner rollers so that it will continue to work perfectly for as long as possible.

SOURCE: my proform xp slows below the set speed, the motor wines and after forty minutes starts to smell

Dear Sir:
Please RUN THE software calibration for easy diagnose and troubleshooting, and adjust the speed sensor see the diagram attached.
And you will see the problem with the motor, possible lack of LUBE, and maintenance.Now you test the motor for lubrication and maintenance too.

The timer works but after starting within a few min the motor speed goes to low speed and stays there


well I cant be absolute sure because you didn't include the make and model of the timer/control , but I can say on most automatic controllers for pool and spa pumps , if you set them to come on automatically at a preset time of day most will run in there slow to mid speed , this is because the filter doesn't need to have highest flow to work , and then this reserves the highest speed for when it's needed like when pool/spa is in use by people and the control should allow an operator to manually override it to full speed as well , hence the automatic cycle time of day should not be set to operate at peak use times but instead late at night or off use hours (saves energy too)

My proform 590 treadmill has these problems ; belt slips when running or walking ,speed goes up and down does not stay constant and you can hear motor noise increasing and decreasing in motor what should...


simple(maybe). go to the rear of treadmill,get the allen wrench that came with it,run at med-slow speed and adjust the rear roller with allen wrench. 1 turn per side 2 or 3 time then walk on belt until wont slip. all the problem is belt tension. also. make sure if it need lubrication under board and belt(some are lubless others dont).

My net speed get very slow


If you are talking about about your speed while connected to the wireless, I do believe this is a 801.11b, which means it is a slower router (for wireless) and only goes up to 11Mbps. If you think you are getting even slower speed than that, log in to it, go to the wireless setting tab and find the setting for the connection speed. make sure its set to use the full 11Mbps! (sometimes is can be set to only 1-3 or 3-5Mbps).
If you are talking about the speed while connected via hard wire (eithernet cable), log in to your router and make sure that the wired speed is set to the highest value (I believe this one goes to 100Mbps full-duplex) and also make sure that the cable you are using is at least a CAT5 or above (CAT5. CAT5E, CAT6). A CAT3 ethernet cable will not go up to the 100mpbs! (this is printed on the wire).. also make sure that the port on your computer also goes up to 100mbps!

hope this helps!

Need owner's manual for ifit.com treadmill


1. When walking on the treadmill the belt abruptly stops.
2. As the speed increases so does the noise. Is this associated with the belt tension? Tightening the belt causes the belt not to move at all. What might be the solution to 1 & 2?
