The term immobilize is on the display panel and I want to start it up. How do I get it going again?


When necessary to immobilize the treadmill, set display to read SELECT A WORKOUT. (Press the STOP Key
twice if not already there). Then hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill
now displays IMMOBILIZED. In this state, the treadmill cannot be operated. The main motor and incline are
disabled. The treadmill will remain in this state across resets, power cycles, etc. To restore normal operation,
repeat the same key sequence: hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill will
display SELECT A WORKOUT again.

I am having problems with my treadmill when some one gets on it then it slow downs and dosen


The first place to look would be the condition of the walking belt and deck. If they are worn, dry or several years old the friction between the walking belt and deck might be causing the drive motor to slow down during your workout. If the walking belt and deck have never been replaced we would recommend starting with that repair since these are parts which will need to be replaced anyway during the life of the treadmill. if you continue to experience problems following this repair, there may be a problem with a weak drive motor or in some cases a motor control board which is failing to send the appropriate amount of current to the drive motor during a workout.

My e3100 treadmill stops during workout


Dear Sir:

Please the first thing you must do: is Lubrication.
This cause enough friction between deck vs walk belt, by that reason the electronic design for to protect the system shut down the treadmill.

Of course the 2nd cause: can be the main motor board.

Try the first . sincerely. God bless you

Stops dead during workout


Dear Sir:

Most of the problem with this situation is lack of lubrication and regular maintenance.

The treadmill is very complex electronic equipment. The friction between deck vs walk belt is Enough for to protect the equipment, the electronic design shut down the treadmill, for to avoid damage to the electronic components.

2nd failure is main motor board. But you must lubricate your equipment, see your instruction manual or user guide. If you do not have you can download free from Nordic: www.Nordic.com, go to service customer, then parts%Manuals, give your model, etc, and download for free.

How does the e3200treadmill fat calories work with the regular calories burnt.


Add incline. Instead of keeping the treadmill on a flat surface, maintain an incline as you walk, jog or run. This will serve to replicate the wind resistance and terrain variation that you encounter when you run outdoors. Keep an incline of at least 1.5 percent on your treadmill throughout your workout.

  • 2 Increase your speed. If you run at the same speed every time you workout, your body will not be challenged and you may reach a fitness plateau. Up your speed by a quarter-mile per hour every few weeks.
  • 3 Vary your workout time. In order to challenge your body in different ways, variety is key. If you run for half an hour three times a week, opt for a one-hour run for your fourth workout. This will help to condition your body for endurance training, resulting in more calories burned.
  • 4 Use intervals. Interval training can dramatically increase your calorie burn in an average workout. Instead of running at a steady pace for your entire workout, mix in sprints. Jog at a steady pace for two minutes, and then increase your speed to a full sprint for 30 seconds. Return to the steady pace to recover. Your heart rate will rise on your intense sprint intervals and stabilize on your longer recovery periods.
  • 5 Incorporate incline into your interval training. You can use incline in the same manner that you would speed to interval train. Walk or jog at a 5 percent incline for two minutes. Increase the incline to 10 percent for two minutes and then to the 15 percent maximum for one minute. Decrease the incline back to 10 percent for two minutes and finally back to 5 percent for two minutes. Repeat this same pyramid interval a few times.
  • 6 Wear a heart rate monitor. This will monitor how hard you are actually working as well as how many calories you burn in each workout. You can then adjust your speed and incline accordingly to maximize your calorie burn.
  • 7 Drink plenty of water before, during and after your treadmill workout. If you are dehydrated, you won't perform as well as you can. You'll work harder and burn more calories if you're hydrated

    Dear Sir:

    I hope your are very well in union with your family.

    I will help you inmediatel.

    Please do the following:

    If you can walk on your treadmill but it shuts down during a workout, it is normally caused by a friction problem with the belt and deck.
    Here are the most common symptoms and solutions:
    1)
    Symptom: The treadmill operates for a given period of time and the circuit breaker on the treadmill trips causing you to have to reset the breaker, or let it cool off then reset the breaker.

    The amount of time required to shut down will progressively get shorter.

    Solution: The walking belt is worn. The incline test is the best test for it if you don't have a way to take a
    DC amp draw. Put the treadmill at full incline and walk normally. If it takes it longer to shut off or does not
    shut off at all, you need to replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect the deck for wear too. If you want to
    go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking belt. The best fix is to replace the
    walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.
    2)
    Symptom: The treadmill will show power but after a given period of time, the treadmill will simply shut
    down. Once you let it cool off, you can restart it back up but it shuts down faster and the time required
    before it shuts down gets progressively shorter.
    Solution: Your treadmill is most likely equipped with a heat sensor which shuts down the motor and/or
    electronics to prevent them from burning up. If this is the case, replace the walking belt. Be sure to inspect
    the deck for wear too. If you want to go for a cheap fix try lubricating the walking
    belt. The best fix is to replace the walking belt and then regularly maintain it and keep the treadmill clean.
    3)
    Symptom: The treadmill shuts down in an intermittent pattern...there is no rhyme or reason to when it will
    shut down. I get an error code or nothing shows up on the panel. I have to either unplug the treadmill or
    reset it to restart the treadmill.
    Solution: If you get an error code, contact us with the code and make and model and we will try to help
    you figure out what is going on. Typically we either find a loose wire, an intermittent short, a bad power
    board, or a bad control panel in service calls that we do locally. Unplug your treadmill and then check all
    your wiring to make sure nothing is pinched, crimped or loose. Remove and replace each connector in
    case corrosion is causing.

    Thank you in advance, sincerely. God bless you.

    If you need further assistance,please contact us.

    General Construction
    • The most basic breakdown of a treadmill: a continuously moving belt powered by a motor over a deck that is mounted on a sturdy metal frame. The variables are the size of the belt, the power of the motor, the thickness and composition of the platform as well as the range of options that increase both function and cost of the treadmill. Making the right choices on all these permutations will add to the enjoyment and benefits of using your treadmill.
    Frame Composition
    • Frames are generally made from aluminum or steel. Even if there's no difference in the tensile strength in the frames, steel is better because it will produce a heavier treadmill. That increases the machine's stability and lessens the vibrations generated by your exercise, especially running. Frames can be either bolted or welded together. Welded frames are stronger, and there is no risk of a bolt working loose during long periods of operating the treadmill.
    Motor Size
    • Most treadmills have two electric motors. One raises and lowers the deck, allowing you to get a versatile workout. The more important motor is the one that moves the exercise belt under your feet. The drive motor turns a flywheel that is connected by a belt---similar to the belts for the engine of your car---to the front roller. The front roller pushes the exercise belt to the back of the treadmill where a free-moving rear roller serves as the exercise belt's turnaround point. Check for the continuous horsepower (CHP) and revolution per minute (RPM) rating on the motor. In fact, lift the motor cover and look for the ratings stamped directly on the motor. A motor that needs high RPMs (more than 5,000) to generate enough torque to drive the exercise belt is a candidate for overheating and is unlikely to last long. If your plan is only to walk---not run---on your treadmill, a 1.5-horsepower motor with less than 5,000 RPMs will suffice. But if you weigh more than 200 lbs. or you plan to run on your treadmill, you will need at least a 2-horsepower motor with an RPM rating of 4,000 or, preferably, less. Choosing one with 2.5 horsepower or more will be even better if you plan to run for long workouts. When in doubt, go up in horsepower. The motor not only moves the belt but it must overcome the resistance you provide with each stride. Smaller motors with high RPM ratings will allow the belt to hesitate slightly. In addition, you likely will be moving more slowly than the speed displayed on the treadmill's console if you are trying to run. Larger motors might be noisier, so look for a motor housing that absorbs some of the machine noise when the treadmill is in operation.
    Belt Size
    • Your workout plans also will dictate what size belt and rollers you need. The treadmill's exercise belt will be made of a thin, multiply polyester/fabric mix with a PVC top coat, which produces the best combination for reducing friction and the heat it generates. This will extend the life of the belt and prevent slipping while you're in motion. Although the surface will be smooth against the deck, the PVC coating will be waffled underneath your feet for better traction. Even if you have short legs and you only plan to walk on the treadmill, you should get a belt at least 18 inches wide and 48 inches long. If you plan to run, a 20-inch belt width is better and 22 inches is best, and you shouldn't choose anything less than 54 inches in length. Longer---up to 60 inches---is better, especially for tall runners. The treadmill will run more smoothly with bigger rollers because the rollers will have more grip surface for the belt as it is propelled over the deck. If you plan to run on your treadmill, rollers with 2-inch diameter are the minimum. Some high-end treadmills come with 3.5-inch rollers. Larger rollers also result in less stress on the bearings; a 3.5-inch roller will need to rotate roughly 60 percent less than a 2-inch roller to cover the same distance.
    Platform Surface
    • Treadmill decks are made of wood or, more specifically, composite wood substitutes, either particle board or medium density fiberboard (MDF). For runners, an MDF deck at least 1-inch thick is the minimum. A 3/4-inch surface might be OK for walking, but it will be too bouncy for running and will crack more easily. The deck surface will have a laminate coating---preferably on both sides---to allow the exercise belt to slide smoothly. Treadmills commonly have rubber grommets built into the frame to provide cushioning as you exercise. Some treadmills have shock absorption only in the front (landing area) so that you have a firmer push-off for your next stride. With the built-in shock absorption and the smooth surface, a workout on a treadmill is likely to be less stressful on your joints than running outdoors, unless you have access to a perfectly level wood-chip path.
    Speed and Incline
    • Most treadmills now come equipped with easy-to-reach controls that allow you to change the belt speed and the incline of the deck while the belt is in motion. The lift motor generally uses a hydraulic lift to raise and lower the treadmill on its front legs. The elevation motor should have a thrust value of at least 400---more for runners---so the deck can be shoved up without any hesitation during exercise. Some treadmills use gears for elevation. That's neither as smooth nor as reliable as hydraulic lifts. The speed of the belt is controlled from the console of the treadmill. As you raise your speed by 1/10 mile per hour, the motor subtly increases the power it is generating to the rollers, much as a hair dryer does less subtly as you click from medium to high. For runners, look for a treadmill that provides a speed of at least 12 miles per hour and allows an elevation of at least 10 percent. That will give you the opportunity to include some speed work and hill training in your workouts.
    More Features
    • Some treadmills come equipped with iPod ports, built-in TVs, drink holders, cooling fans, computer-generated workouts and heart-rate monitors. The computer workouts will build in elevation-change programs, and you can punch in the starting speed of your workout and change it manually. Treadmills also allow you to create programs in which you can choose both the speed and elevation changes. Heart-rate monitors calculate your heart beats per minute and can be operated continuously using chest or arm bands or intermittently using a finger clip or by gripping a sensor on the front rail with one hand. But none of these features outweighs the importance of choosing the right belt and motor for your workout.
    Safety
    • Make sure the treadmill has a safety release---usually a magnetic key---so you can stop the exercise belt dead in the event of an injury or other emergency. The treadmill is wired so that the key must be in place on or near the console to complete the electronic circuit and allow the machine to operate. Yet the key can easily be yanked free, immediately stopping the drive motor and putting the brakes on the exercise belt.

    Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills


    Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
