That all depends on how tall you are, how long your stride and legs are, each person is different.

What would 3000 steps equal towards a mile?

It would depend on the length of your step, running, walking, jogging, up hill or down, over pavement or irregular terrain. If you measure it in feet and take and average then divide 5,280 by your measure to determine the relationship of your step to a mile.

How many steps in a mile?

That depends on your leg length/length of stride but as a rule of thumb a stride is reckoned to be approximately a yard as a rough average but people don't tend to stride out unless walking purposefully along an empty road but if they do you can reckon between 1700 and 1800 to the mile. For more normal walking/sauntering steps are shorter and there could be as many as 2500 to the mile...

Hiw many miles is 6710 steps

An average stride is 30 inches. Let's say yours is 10% greater than that, or 33 inches.

A mile is 5280 feet, or 63360 inches. You have walked 6710 * 33 inches or 221430 inches. 221430/63360 is 3.49 or about 3.5 miles.

Can i check on my on line purchases for the last month?

A pedometer or step counter is a device, in modern times usually portable and electronic or electromechanical, that counts each step a person takes by detecting the motion of the person's hips. Because the distance of each person's step varies, an informal calibration performed by the user is required if a standardized distance (such as in kilometres or miles) is desired.
Used originally by sports and physical fitness enthusiasts, pedometers are now becoming popular as an everyday exercise measurer and motivator. Often worn on the belt and kept on all day, it can record how many steps the wearer has walked that day, and thus the kilometres or miles (distance = number of steps × step length). Some pedometers will also erroneously record movements other than walking, such as bending to tie one's shoes, or road bumps incurred while riding a vehicle, though the most advanced devices record fewer of these 'false steps'. Step counters can give encouragement to compete with oneself in getting fit and losing weight. A total of 10,000 steps per day, equivalent to 5 miles (8.0 km), is recommended by some to be the benchmark for an active lifestyle, although this point is debated among experts[1][2]. Step counters are being integrated into an increasing number of portable consumer electronic devices such as music players and mobile phones.

i dont think you can your online purchases with it

Is the Welso Cadence 927 Treadmill in miles or Km?

hi, the console can display speed and distance in either kilometers or miles!
step 1/ move the key and hold down the stop button.
step2/ reinsert the key into the console, after you hear a bleep tone release the stop button and an "m" for kilometers or an "e" for english miles will appear in the display. press the speed in-crease button to change the unit of measurement.
step 3/ when you have chosen the miles take the key off and reinsert it. hopefully you should have changed your units to whatever you have chosen.

1 Answer

The belt is sliping as I walk or run

* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!

Can walk on it but when i start to run the belt stops and all the electronics go off then come back on

Sounds like the belt and deck needs lubrications. Why I say that when walking you do not drawn as much power as you would running. IF their is a lack of lubrications their is a higher amount of friction thus the Motor Control Board has a internal shut off which prevent further damage to the treadmill. This is a fact that 75% to 85% of the problems are belt and deck related. So i suggest you call Nation Gym Supply @ 1-800-496-7278 order this lube part # TM001 Follow these steps below:
Lift the belt and use approximately ½ of the tube by squeezing the lube in the walking area lengthwise. Move to the opposite side of the treadmill and repeat using the remainder of the lube. Use all of the contents of a single container during application. The lube will spread evenly in the next step. Do not perform this step by hand. The lube is usually not harmful to the skin but has the potential to permanently stain fabric.
Start the treadmill at 2 mph and walk on for about 5 minutes then check centering carefully and adjust as needed following your owner’s manual instructions

Fax and cancel lights are flashing

I found this solution at HP website. It worked for me. Good luck!

A Scanner Bulb Error message is received as a result of the HP LaserJet 3300mfp series product scanner’s inability to find the home reference point.
Perform the following steps to walk the scan assembly from the home base and resolve the issue.
1. Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.
2. Wait approximately 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to “walk out" and then quickly remove the plug again.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, three to four times until the head moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.
4. Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle.
