Make sure that the gap between the Magnet and the Reed Switch is about 1/8 in. (3 mm). If necessary, loosen the indicated #8 x 3/4" Washer Head Tek Screw (26), move the Reed Switch slightly, and then retighten the Tek Screw.

6. WAKING BELT BECOME SLOW WHILE WAKING ON IT
SOLUTION: 
a. Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications,
b. If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the
walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 3 to 4 in. (8 to 10 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

If the walking belt has shifted to the left, use the hex key to turn the left idler roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn; if the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the left idler roller bolt counterclockwise 1/2 of a turn. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centered.


b. If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and 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 3 to 4 in. (8 to 10 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered.

8. POOR RECEPTION ON TELEVISION 
SOLUTION: 
a. Make sure that the television settings are set correctly.
b. For the digital television to operate properly, good reception is necessary. If you are using an antenna, make sure that it is properly connected and adjusted for optimal reception.
c. Check for the problems listed below and follow the applicable instructions.
# Ignition (black spots or horizontal streaks that appear or a picture that flutters or drifts)— Usually this is caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electric drifts, or other electric appliances. Try changing the position of the treadmill or other electric appliances to correct the problem.
# Ghosts—Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths—one is the direct path and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills, or other objects. Change the direction or position of the antenna to improve reception.
# Blue Screen—If the treadmill is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is weak, the picture may be of poor quality or a blue screen may appear. If the signal is weak, it may be necessary to install an external antenna to improve the picture.
# Fading—If blocks of the picture are missing, the picture moves around the screen, or the picture disappears, the signal may be weak. Change the direction or position of the antenna to improve reception. Make sure the television settings are set correctly .Do not use a splitter.
Note: If one of these problems appears when the cable from a CATV company is connected, the problem may be caused by the cable company broadcast.
9. REMOTE NOT WORKING
SOLUTION: 
a. Make sure you are standing on the treadmill, holding the remote control near the television and pointing the remote control directly at the console.
b. If your remote control is still not functioning correctly, the batteries should be replaced; most remote control problems are the result of low batteries. See page 23 to replace the batteries.
10. NO SIGNAL ON TELEVISION
SOLUTION:
a. Make sure the correct TV or AV source is selected.
b. Make sure that the antenna cable, CATV cable, or 96" A/V Wire is connected securely to the treadmill.
c. Scan for broadcast or cable signals. See page 25 to scan for signals.
d. Due to an FCC requirement, analog signals will no longer be broadcast over the air after June 12, 2009. If you wish to view television signals through an antenna after this date, you must have an antenna capable of receiving digital signals. Cable television will not be affected.
11. VOLUME TOO LOUD OR MAKING CRICKING SOUND
SOLUTION: 
 If the television audio makes a crackling sound when the volume is turned up, the volume is too loud. Press the Volume increase or decrease button on the remote control until the volume level is 80 percent. Once the volume reaches 80 percent, adjust the volume by pressing the Volume buttons on the console only.
12. VOLUME UP IS NOT WORKING
SOLUTION: a. If the volume cannot be turned up, the volume may have been adjusted with the remote control. Press the Volume increase or decrease button on the remote control until the volume level is 80 percent. Once the volume reaches 80 percent, adjust the volume by pressing the Volume buttons on the console only.
b. If there is no sound coming from the television, make sure the television audio is not muted.
13. HOW TO CLEAN THE TELEVISION 
SOLUTION: 
UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. To clean the television, wipe the television and screen using a soft cloth with a small amount of soft detergent. Do not use a polishing cloth, solvent, or any type of propellant or chemical detergent such as alcohol or benzene.
