Question about Life Fitness F3 Folding Treadmill with Advanced Console

Open Question

While running, jogging, and walking on the treadmill I continuously receive a SPEED STALL ERROR message. I once called about this and was told this was a power source error. I unplugged the unit and plugged it back directly into the wall with no other devices. The message still continues to come up. Please advise. Thank you, Fiona Mickelson

the treadmill should have tension adjusting screws. they'd be on the back of the treadmill where the belt wraps around the rear roller, they're inset and you'll need an allen wrench to adjust them. the screws adjust this rear roller. you'll want to tighten them to increase the tension. they also straighten the belt. if your belt is too fat to the right, you'll want to turn the adjustment screw on the right clockwise to tighten and this will bring the belt over to the left. and vica versa for the belt being too far to the left.

SOURCE: T3 Treadmill Stuck Key

The cause of a “STUCK KEY” error message on the Basic or Advanced consoles. A stuck key error is displayed when one or more keys on the console or activity zone remain actuated for more than 45 seconds.
SOLUTION
Recycle the power. If the key remains stuck, the console will display “PLEASE WAIT” until the stuck key error is displayed again. Determine the stuck key. Replace the console if the problem is a key on the console. Replace the activity zone membrane keypad or the activity zone circuit board depending on the product if the problem is not in the console.

OS or O5 Error on Landice L-Series Treadmills


Probable Cause

An OS or O5 error on the Landice L-Series treadmills, such as the L7, L8 and L9, indicates an over speed condition and this occurs when the actual speed of the running belt is faster than the set speed. The possible causes for an overspeed, OS or O5, error are: A) User weight is over 200lbs, treadmill elevation is set between 10% and 15% grade and speed is set between .5 mph and 3 mph
B) User is pushing against treadmill belt causing it to go faster than the set speed
C) Defective lower board or misaligned speed sensor
D) Maladjusted speed potentiometer

Corrective Action

A) Gravitational force will enable the user's weight to move the treadbelt faster than the set speed. The speed sensor will pick up this increase in flywheel speed and sends this information up to the display electronics. The microprocessor will then compare the actual speed to the displayed speed, determine a runaway speed condition and shut the treadmill down. An overspeed will display in the window. This is a safety feature built into all treadmills that utilize closed loop speed circuitry. The way to address an over speed condition due to gravity is have the user decrease elevation below 10% or increase the speed.

B) Similar to the gravitational force, a user can be holding onto the handrails and pushing the running belt in such a manner where they are using the treadmill like a manual machine rather than a motorized one. User needs to set speed compatible for their actual walking or jogging speed so they are not pushing the belt.

C) It's possible a blown motor control board is the problem. This occurs more frequently with PWM drives than SCR drives. However, this problem is becoming rare due to the PWM circuitry which senses this condition and shuts itself down before the drive motor receives any DC voltage at all. This means you'll get an LS or L5 error if your PWM is blown, not an OS or O5 error. This is a safety feature on all Landice home treadmills with PWM motor control boards. The SCR motor control boards also have internal protection to prevent an over speed condition from occuring due to an internal component failure. In the rarest of cases, on home treadmills, a faulty relay board can cause an OS or O5. To verify this, using a digital voltmeter, with treadmill turned on, measure the DC voltage between the V+ and P1 on the PWM board. The reading should be between 6-7 VDC. Also measure the DC voltage between P1 and P2 on the PWM board. The reading should be between 0.5 VDC and 6-7 VDC. If either of these voltages measure zero, replace the relay board.

D) Get into Open Loop Speed mode and check the speed. Adjust pots as necessary to bring up correct speed for max and min.

What's the problem of error 1 on my york t520i treadmill that stopped working, I need your help please.


Error 1: Speed sensor error Turn the power switch off and on again to reset the treadmill. If the treadmill returns to normal operation, you may continue to use the treadmill. If treadmill does not return to normal operation, then call the dealer for advice.
ERROR 1 CODE This is a safety feature that can stop the treadmill from functioning. This error can occur because the computer is not receiving the correct information from the speed sensor located near the motor. As a precaution the computer stops the treadmill until it begins to receive the correct feedback. By performing a few simple checks, the error can be cleared quickly and easily, and the treadmill can be ready for use. The treadmill does not move and displays "ERROR 1" Switch off the treadmill at the mains, and then switch it on again. If "ERROR 1" still shows switch off and push the running mat round (1 cycle) using your feet. Then switch back on. If "ERROR 1" still shows, then UNPLUG from the mains and check all of the wire connections made during the assembly. (SEE BOLD PRINT) UNPLUG If the treadmill still does not move, then please contact the helpdesk. Doing this may reset the program error, and the treadmill will be ready to use. This should reset the sensor, and the treadmill will be ready to use. Once the cables have been checked, turn on the treadmill again. This should eradicate the problem. 1. 2. 3. When assembling, there are several cables that need to be connected. It is very common for these cables to look like they are connected when they are in fact not fully connected. Make sure that these cables are connected as tightly as possible. The connections may have come apart whilst assembling the treadmill. here is a link to your treadmill web site http://www.yorkfitness.com.au/uploaded/pdf_71T520i%20Treadmill_5562.pdf

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.

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

    Unplug unit remove motor shroud then plug unit back in , press start and begin walking on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip ( planting foot to stop the belt).
    Be careful during this test. If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. Here is the procedure for adjusting the drive belt.
    Find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust.
    Find the set bolt(s) on the motor. This is typically run through only one side of the motor mount or may be on both sides but it does not run the full length of the mounting. Loosen this bolt(s) but do not remove. Jack bolt models will have flat mounts and may contain up to four bolts.
    Look for a bolt that will tension the motor. If it has this bolt, it typically runs in the same direction parallel with the drive and walking belts. If your treadmill is not equipped with this bolt, skip to Step 4. If your treadmill is equipped with this bolt (very few are) the repair will only require one person. Using 2 7/16" wrenches, make a few turns to this bolt, tighten the bolts and test your treadmill for slipping. If belt continues to slip, and if their is too much tension ( you should be able comfortably twist the drive belt 90 degrees ) then replace drive belt. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller, here the procedure adjusting the walking belt.
    If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn.When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened
    If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley. If this is the problem, you will notice it because the plastic will usually make a loud squealing sound on the metal front roller. The front roller assembly will need to be replaced and the drive belt must be replaced also. We suggest replacing the drive belt as well because it is a low cost item and will most likely, have suffered unusual wear from the problem. Another possibility is that the drive belt has worn down. In some cases, belt dressing may help correct the problem. If not, the drive belt must be replaced.

    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.

    I need to tighten the belt, it keeps slipping while walking on it


    Unplug unit then remove motor shroud then do the following: If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.

    1) Adjusting the running belt if the problem: If the walking belt slips when walked on, UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered.Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.
    2) Adjusting Drive belt: Find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust.
