Run the treadmill for a few minutes to check for a correct speed reading.

TREADMILL BELT SLOWING DOWN OR SLIPPING

WALKING BELT MOVING TO LEFT OR RIGHT
a. If the walking belt is off-center, remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, use the allen wrench to turn the left rear roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn; if the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the left rear 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 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.

TELEVISION RECEPTION IS POOR
a. For the 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.
b. 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.
#GhostsiGhosts 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.
Note: If one of these symptoms appears when the cable from a CATV company is connected, the symptom may be caused by the local company broadcast.
THE REMOTE IS NOT FUNCTIONING
a. When pressing buttons on the remote control, point the remote control toward the sensor on the pulse bar. Make sure that the sensor is not exposed to direct sunlight.
b. Make sure that the batteries in the remote control are properly installed. If the batteries are properly installed, replace the batteries.
