Unplug unit and remove motor shroud if you are savvy with a multi meter then try these trouble shooting procedure:
Perform and elevation calibration again, On the display, can you see numbers counting down and up and the treadmill is going up and down? If yes then the unit will proceed to work, if no when power is on, check on the lower board, on connector J5, do we have 5V DC between pin 1 & 3? If yes During Calibration, J5, between Pin 5 & 6, on the lower board, do we have 120V AC when treadmill is going up?
If Yes During Calibration, J5, between Pin 4 & 6, on the lower board, do we have 120V AC when treadmill is going up?
If Yes During Calibration, J5, between Pin 2 & 3, on the lower board, do we have DC voltage varying from 1.15 to 3.00? If any of the above is no then then the lower board will need replacing if all is yes then elevation motor needs replacing.

How do I calibrate elevation grade for treadmill?


Hey there, sorry to hear you're having an issue with your elevation motor. I would be happy to help you solve the problem.
Since you already installed your motor you can go straight into diagnostic mode.

To get into Diagnostic Mode on your L8
Make sure to turn off your treadmill.

-ET's - Press Menu and Start at the same time
-CT's - Press Manual (or Display^) and Start at the same time
-All other L SERIES mills - Press Display (or display and Start at the same time

SideNote-
-*CT's that were manufactured after 09/2003 - Press Display and start at the same time.




Few things you want to do, if you haven't already.

A. Align the motor with the clevis mount and install the motor mounting pin.

B. Insert hitch pin.

C. Reconnect the elevation harness to the lower board

D. Set the lowest limit switch by holding the UP elevation button for 5 seconds. Then press and hold the DN elevation button one more time to make sure you only hear a click.

E. For L7/L8 machines; Thread the elevation nut to where its flush with the threads on the "worm' shaft.

F. Mount the elevation nut to the leg assembly by lining up the holes on the leg assembly. You may have to move the leg assembly so that the holes on the elevation nut line up. Then slide the two elevation pins through the elevation assembly and into the elevation nut. then secure the pins with the 2 set screws.




To calibrate your potentiometer you can try to adjust while it is installed but for best results you must calibrate it before its in your motor housing.







G. Calibrate the elevation potentiometer and to do so you must;
1st: Visually confirm treadmill is leveled. (0% grade)
2nd: Adjust the settings as follows;
All L SERIES millls should read 0.0
3rd: If the setting is incorrect, follow these steps.
Step 1: Turn the post of the potentiometer all the way
CLOCKWISE.
Step 2: SLOWLY turn the potentiometer COUNTER
CLOCKWISE until the setting is correct.

H. Carefully install potentiometer into the motor housing
*NOTE: The setting may vary when inserting the potentiometer
into the motor. As long as the change is minimal, fine
adjustment can be achieved by rotating the meter
while inside the elevation motor.

I. Press OFF to turn treadmill off. Then restart the machine in manual mode to TEST elevation after resetting your potentiometer. As long as the change is minimal, fine adjustment can be achieved by rotating the potentiometer while inside the elevation motor.


For more Diagnostic features and possibly further detail, I will be attaching a Link to your machines service manual. I hope this helps, always hear to help. SportSmith.

How to calibrate a Vision Fitness Treadmill - Residential Models


If you are not quite sure about the speed/elevation of your machine you can perform the following to test/correct your Vision Fitness treadmill.

1. Remove safety key and then replace
2. Hold the elevation up and speed down buttons until it beeps 3 times
3. If you see the model of your treadmill on this screen make sure you hold enter and then you will see "eng1"
4. Use the elevation buttons to scroll to "eng4" and hold enter to select
5. you should see the word "auto" on the screen at this point
6. Making sure you are not on the treadmill at all, press start.

The treadmill will go through a few tests to determine the maximum and minimum of both speed/elevation. You can see the results on the display as it is performing this test and if there are any discrepancies the machine will adjust the settings to make the appropriate speed/elevation calibration.

If the test passes it will display "end" and from here just remove and replace the safety key. You should notice a difference in the speed right away.

I turned on my treadmill after a long hiatus :) and got an error message and a beep. The errors were E4, E9 and a few others. It is a Vision Fitness T9400HRT model. Any idea how to fix?


E4: Solution 1. Check power to the treadmill, as insufficient voltage to the treadmill can cause this error to reoccur. Check the power socket that the tread is plugged into. Eliminate any extension cords or surge protectors (plug the tread directly into a functional power source). Make sure the circuit is not overloaded. Make sure the circuit is NON-GFI. 2. Calibrate (See engineering mode for specific treadmill). 3. If calibrations do not hold, replace upper console. Note: Usually simultaneous with an E6. E6: Solution 1. Check the elevation plug connection at the lower board. 2. Check ALL large data cable connection at the lower and upper boards. 3. Calibrate (See engineering mode for specific treadmill) 4. Test/change large data cable (use large data cable information provided in the data cable portion of this Guide). 5. Replace elevation motor E7/E9: Solution 1. Certain lower boards have an LED that flashes when the magnet on the roller passes the sensor. Adjust sensor position if LED does not flash. See lower board basic troubleshooting for lower boards with the LED. 2. Unplug RPM sensor at the lower board. Check continuity. Treadmill will operate without sensor but cannot Autocalibrate. Calibrate manually. 3. Replace RPM sensor TREADMILL.TROUBLESHOOTING. AUTO CALIBRATION STEP 1 ENTER ENGINEERING MODE • With the SAFETY KEY in place, hold the “ELEVATION UP” and “SPEED DOWN” buttons for 5 seconds. “DGA3” will appear in the profile window and “EHG1” will appear in the function window. • You are now in ENGINEERING MODE STEP 2 ENTER AUTO CALIBRATIONS • Press the “ELEVATION UP” or “SPEED UP” to “EHG4”. • Press “SELECT”. STEP 3 • Press “START”. The treadmill will calibrate itself. This will take about 3 to 5 minutes. When AUTO is complete, “END” will appear in the window. Wait 10 to 15 seconds and the treadmill will reset itself to “P1”. STEP 4 • Press “START” to test the treadmill

I have a vision fitness T9450 treadmill. My wife was using it and it slowed to 2mph. That is all the faster it goes now. Elevation controls work fine and everything else functions.


first thing to do is to enter the calibration mode. First remove and replace the safety key. Press and hold the elevation up and the speed down buttons until the machines beeps at you 3 times consecutively. You should also see either the model "9450" or the software code which varies from machine to machine. You should now see one of two things - "eng1" may be displayed in which case just use the elevation keys to get to "eng4" and hold enter for 3 seconds - then press start - this will calibrate your machine and confirm if there is any speed reading issues.

If your machine displays more numbers as it would on the deluxe and premier consoles of this brand then you should see the model of your treadmill at the top left. hold enter from here until "eng1" appears and the perform the steps as above. If the speed is not calculating properly during the calibration the magnet or the speed sensor may have been moved or the magnet could have gone bad - usually slowing to one speed and not changing is the sign of a bad speed sensor. If the control board had any irregular voltage it would shut down as a safety precaution.

Elevation Problem


Some models have the Barometric Altimeter which needs to be calibrated, and some units do not.

Vertical Accuracy of a properly calibrated Barometric Altimeter is +/- 10'. If you have a unit that uses provides a GPS Elevation only, a +/- 50' vertical solution is pretty standard.
