FIRMWARE UPDATE AND TROUBLE SHOOTING  

UPDATING THE FIRMWARE
For the best results, regularly check for firmware updates.
Touch the Firmware Update button to check for firmware updates using your wireless network. The update will begin automatically.
To avoid damaging the incline trainer, do not turn off the power or remove the key while the firmware is being updated.
Note: Occasionally, a firmware update may cause your console to function slightly differently. These updates are always designed to improve your exercise experience.
Note: If you cannot update the console firmware over your wireless network, you can update the firmware using a USB drive. Go to iFit web page and download the latest firmware update onto your 
USB drive. Safely remove the USB drive from your computer and plug it into the USB port on the side of the console. The update should begin automatically.
The screen will show the progress of the update. When the update is complete, the incline trainer will turn off and then turn back on. If it does not, press the power switch into the off position. Wait for several seconds, and then press the power switch into the reset position. Note: It may take a few minutes for the console to be ready for use. 
Calibrate the incline system of the trainer.
Touch the Calibrate Incline button. Then, touch the Begin button to calibrate the incline system. The incline trainer will automatically rise to the maximum incline level, lower to the minimum incline level, and then return to the starting position. This will calibrate the incline system. Press the Cancel button to return to the maintenance mode. When the incline system is calibrated, touch the Finish button.
IMPORTANT: Keep pets, feet, and other objects away from the incline trainer while the incline system is calibrating. In an emergency, pull the key from the console to stop the incline calibration.
