Checking Treadmill Operation.
Procedure
1. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet, then turn on the treadmill with the circuit breaker.
2. Operate the treadmill in the Manual program. Adjust the speed of the running belt to 2–3 m.p.h. Operate the treadmill for at least 5 minutes.
a. Concentrate on the feel of the running belt and the sound of the drive motor and rollers.
Be on the alert for unusual noises, smells, or vibrations.
b. Observe the LED’s on the electronic console. Make sure that each LED lights as the information corresponding to that LED is displayed on the electronic console.
c. Enter the diagnostics program and log the power bits under loaded and unloaded conditions.
3. Press the STOP key. When the treadmill comes to a stop, view the electronic console as the treadmill scans time, speed, distance and percent of incline.
4. Press the INCLINE UP key while viewing the electronic console. Confirm that the running bed inclines and the incline display increments to 15% as the INCLINE UP key is pressed.
5. Press the INCLINE DOWN key while viewing the electronic console. Confirm that the running bed returns to a level position and the incline display decrements to 0% as the INCLINE DOWN  key is pressed.
6. Turn off the treadmill with the circuit breaker, then unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet.
Calibrating the Incline Motor
1. Set the treadmill circuit breaker in the “off” position and unplug the line cord from the wall outlet.
2. Remove the hood.
3. Place the treadmill on its right side. Remove hitch and clevis pins that secure the incline tube to the incline platform.
4. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet, set the treadmill circuit breaker in the “on” position. If the lift was not set at 0% incline the lift motor will immediately start to operate. The lift motor will continue to operate until the system is at 0% incline.
5. With the system at 0% incline, rotate the incline tube until the distance from the top of the incline tube to the incline motor is 1-1/4 inch. While rotating the incline tube, be sure the incline motor drive screw does not rotate. If the drive screw is rotated, return to step 4 and repeat steps 4 and 5.
6. Set the treadmill circuit breaker in the “off” position and remove the line cord from the wall outlet.
7. Replace the clevis and hitch pins removed in step 3. Return the treadmill to an upright position.
8. Plug the line cord into the wall outlet, set the treadmill circuit breaker in the “on” position.
9. Check the calibration of the incline system by performing the following steps:
a Press the INCLINE UP key until maximum incline is obtained, 15%.
b Press the INCLINE DOWN  key to minimum incline is obtained, 0% on C956i treadmills or -3% on C966i treadmills.
12. Re-install the hood.
