If this is the same problem you had prior to replacing the MCB and speed sensor. I would check the drive motor, unplug unit then remove motor shroud then unplug the connectors leading to the motor itself. If you have wire leads and a 18v drill battery connect the leads into motor then attach the other end to you battery and if the motor will rotate ( approx. 1mph) , if it does the check speed sensor to see if the correct spacing between sensor and front roller ( check if the magnet has not fallen out of front roller pulley this also can cause you problems) hope this help!!

Error 26 is what's known as a Motor Pulse Width Incorrect. It basically monitors the sensor signal and verifies that it's appropriate for the requested speed. If your machine uses an infrared sensor, check the line of sight between the optical eye and the sensor target, an array of black and silver wedges arranged like a pie. Ensure that it is 3/16" apart and that it's pointed at the larger point of the wedge section. Use an electronic cleaning compressed air cleaner to blow out any particles that could block it. Have a close look at the target, if it's torn or badly scratched, it will need to be replaced.

If the machine uses a hall effect sensor (magnetic) ensure the distance between the flywheel tooth and sensor is 3/16".

You can sometimes get this error if the speed sensor is faulty, but usually it will happen without you even touching the controls at that point because the lower board isn't receiving any signals from the sensor, or you will get a different error code.

I just replaced the drive motor. How do I calibrate the treadmill before use?

Hold the stop, + speed button and attach the safety key. You should get the software version on the speed window. Continue to hit the stop button until you see zeros on the incline, speed, and heart rate windows. Your incline and speed numbers should match, if not increase the speed to 10 MPH and turn the POT resistor until the numbers match on the windows. The pot resistor is on the Motor control board

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

    We have a 600 mx and the pad is not working, the only button working is the start, i cannot increase speed or incline it either.

    It is very unusual to have no incline or walking belt operation..
    Try entering diagnostic mode and do a calibration. The instructions are found under the motor cover on a tech sheet.
    1: with the safety key removed, press stop and speed up simultaniously.
    2: Attach the magnetic safety key.
    3: press stop 1 time.
    4: at this time, by pressing the incline up, the incline should calibrate, going up to maximum then back to minimum..
    5: press the speed up key, you will see the numbers on the console increase. The machine should start moving the walking belt around 25-30 on the display. At 85 the belt should be running at maximum speed.
    6: press speed down, the machine should stop.
    7: remove the safety key. Now replace the safety key and try the machine again.If any of this procedure didn't work, I would suspect a defective console. Otherwise, the motor controller may need replacing.
    Good Luck
