Precor 9.23 Treadmill

Accessing the Diagnostic Program
The 9.23 Treadmill's diagnostic program cycles through the following modes:
Lift Mode - Allows you to verify that the lift calibration number increments and decrements as the INCLINE keys are pressed.
Power Bits Mode - Allows you to view the power bits value displayed on the display console.
Safety Key Mode -  Allows you to verify that the message on the right display window cycles from SAFE ON to SAFE OFF when the safety key is removed from the upper display module.
Heart Rate Mode -  Allows you to verify heart rate monitor operation.
Circuit Breaker Mode -  Allows you to verify that the circuit breaker trips when STOP is pressed.
Procedure
1. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet, then turn on the treadmill with the circuit breaker.
2. With the PRECOR M9.23 banner scrolling, press and hold ENTER. The software version number is displayed in the right display windows. Continue to press ENTER until LIFT is displayed in the right display window.
3. Press the INCLINE keys while you watch the right display window.The lift calibration number increments as the INCLINE UP key is pressed and decrements as the
INCLINE DOWN key is pressed.
4. Press ENTER, then release. The power bits and running belt speed are displayed in the right display window.
Note: Ignore the number displayed in the lowest right display window.
5. Press the SPEED keys while you watch the right display window. The power bits number increments as the SPEED UP key is pressed and decrements as the SPEED DOWN key is pressed.
6. Press ENTER until SAFE ON is displayed in the right display window
