Question about Proform Exercise & Fitness

1 Answer

Treadmill displays incorrect speed. I always run at 4.2 MPH. Today, with the switch in the same position, the display says 6.6 MPH, but the belt is turning at the same 4.2 MPH. I tried unplugging unit & restarting, but still displays 6.6 at the same setting that has always displayed 4.2 MPH.

Treadmill is more than likely in metric. Most mill (if in english measurement) will start out at .5 metric usually star at .8 Not sure how to change for treadmill but it should be in the manual.

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.
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.

Treadmill E1 Error


Version:1.0 StartHTML:0000000168 EndHTML:0000001348 StartFragment:0000000468 EndFragment:0000001331

ERR1 indicates a speed issue. In this case, the motor speed as reported from the optic sensor differs

from the speed setting.

Analysis: Optic sensor signal issue -- Either the optic sensor signal is not right, or it is read incorrectly, or

the signal is not reaching the display.

clean the speed sensor, test for open or faulty. tight the connector very well. RUN the software calibration for easy troubleshooting and fix it.

see the diagram attached. and follow steps.

Cuts off and speed is variable and shows err 4


Precor Error E4, Incomplete Initialization Probable Cause Indicates that an incomplete upper PCA to lower PCA initialization occurred. When this error occurs, all lift motor and drive motor motion is ceased and the display will go blank except for the error displayed.
Corrective Action Run the initialization program. Caution: The treadmill's running belt will accelerate to the treadmill's maximum speed (12mph). DO NOT stand on the treadmill's running belt during the procedure.
  1. Set the on/off switch to the OFF position. Wait a minimum of 10 seconds to allow the internal power supply to discharge.
  2. Remove the safety key from the console and set the on/off switch to the ON position.
  3. Press INCLINE UP and SPEED DOWN keys together. While pressing these keys, replace the safety switch on the console. Continue holding the INCLINE UP and SPEED DOWN keys until the display goes blank. INIT will appear in the time window of the display. The EEPROM is now clear and reset. After a second, 1.25 will appear in the distance/calories window, 15.0 (the maximum incline) will appear in the incline window, and 12.0 (the maximum speed) will flash in the speed/pace window.
  4. Press QUICKSTART to begin the speed calibration process. Power bits will appear in the incline window, the target speed will appear in the time window and the actual speed will appear in the speed/pace window. At the beginning of the process, the target speed will be .5mph. The running belt will start. Once the actual speed reaches .5mph, the target speed will then change to 12mph and the running belt will accelerate until it reaches 12mph, then it will stop.
  5. When the running belt stops, the display will return to the user mode and the initialization process is complete.

Dear Sir:
This is guide for software calibration in Horizon. Please see under your Hood for motor the instruction for step in calibration.
Turn the treadmill power to "On." Place the safety key in its place on the treadmill console.

  • 2 Simultaneously press and hold the incline "+" and speed "-" buttons for approximately five seconds: The console will beep and display the software version in either the "Time" window or the "Calories/Elevation" window.
  • 3 Press "Start" and allow the running belt to begin moving. The belt should start at 0.5 mph. If this speed is not the speed your treadmill starts at, adjust the speed cube screw located under the control board. Turn the screw to slowly to the right to increase the speed or slowly to the left to decrease the speed.
  • 4 Verify this speed is correct by counting the running belt revolutions per minute. At 0.5 mph, the running belt should make four revolutions in a minute for the Alpine and Advance 500 models and four-and-a-half revolutions for all other models.
  • 5 Press and hold the "Stop" button for three seconds to exit the engineering menu.
  • sincerely. God bless you.

    Treadmill powers off when pressing Incline Increase "br 1" error


    You may have a beltand deck problem. Test by the following procedure:
    without the poweron stand on the walking belt, push the belt in the, direction it normally turns. If the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill this means that you have high belt/deck friction I first apply silicone lubricant between the belt & deck to see if that clears up the problem. Most problems originate from the belt and deck 75 to 85% of the time

    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.

    Will not move belt


    Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key.
    Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test.
    Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically.
    BE CAREFUL, THE TREADMILL WILL RUN AT FULL SPEED IN THIS NEXT MODE! DO NOT STAND ON THE WALKING BELT. Press the Speed Up key and hold it down until 85 is shown in the Distance window (some models may show the 85 number in another window).
    If the top speed of the treadmill does not match the displayed speed on the computer console, adjust the max speed potentiometer (pot) on the motor control board. This is the board that the red and black motor wires connect directly into in the motor area. The Max Speed pot is clearly labeled. The max speed potentiometer is a small square with a mobile center and is located in one corner of the board and is labeled MAX SPD. It is near the harness that carries the speed signal labeled H,W,L. Using a small insulated screwdriver adjust this potentiometer clockwise to speed up and counter-clockwise to slow down the max speed of the treadmill. A tiny turn of this potentiometer will make a big difference in speed so be careful when making adjustments. It is not important to get the speed set exactly at the max speed of the treadmill but do make sure to get the speed within .2 MPH of the max speed of the treadmill. For instance if the max speed of the treadmill is 10 MPH, make sure to have the speed set between 9.8 MPH and 10.2 MPH. Some models have a 12 MPH top speed, so please check your manual if you aren’t sure. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP BECAUSE YOU WILL GET AN ERROR MESSAGE IF THIS STEP IS SKIPPED. After completing calibration of the speed, press the Speed Down key. The treadmill will automatically return to 0 MPH. Please allow the unit to stop completely before continuing. Press the Stop key once and remove the safety key.
