There is no flashing light on the display board when increasing speed. Only the numbers go up. Also, no flashing light on the circuit boards when increasing the speed. Just the steady Leds and the flickering LCDs remain the same.
As for your #2 question/answer, this is beyond my expertise. Have no idea as to how to do what you say needs to be done........sorry!
Okay, I started it to run at 2.5 mph. Per your instruction, I steped on board. The belt and motor slowed slightly then returned to the original speed and sound.
As for your #2. To interchange the incline with the speed..........does this mean to pull out a particular part on the Power Board and switch with another?? If so, how will I know which one to switch??
A possible Board failure! The Voltage Diagram that was taped inside the motor housing indicates how to check all of the lite and flickering LEDS. I have checked them all and all are working as prescribed. One of the things I may not have mentioned was, when I run the speed up to the max of 10mph, it goes right up there. However, once I am on board and try to run it up to the 10mph it will show on the board that I have set it that way, but it never got any faster than about 30 mph.
"IF" this is a board failure, do I have to call someone out to fix it?
No, I meant there was no indicator light flashing on the panel next to or near the speed indicator when increasing the speed. The numbers just went up as I pushed the speed increase button. The lights on the lower Power Panel all continued to work as they were supposed to.
Okay, I think I know what you're saying. When running the treadmill at 2.5 mph and then stepping onto the tread, I hear the sound of the motor slow slightly and feel a definite slightly slower speed. This is just for a few seconds and the sound of the motor resumes a little higher pitch and the speed resumes it's 3 mph speed. The actual numbers on the MPH screen remained at 3 mph the entire time...............Hope that helps?
The belt is almost 8 years old. Probably no more than 100 miles logged since purchased in 2002. I have not lubed the deck as the Manual says no need to nor were there any instructions as to do so and how to do so.
Instructions say to tighten the belt so that you have 3 to 4 inches of play when lifting the tread. I did that and when stepping on the tread, it sliped. The directions walked me through a quarter turn with an Allen Wrench on each side until the slipping stopped. I did this and it no longer slips. However, the space when lifting the tread up now only gives me a 2 to 2 and a half inch lift and not the 3 to inch like the Manual says.
As for looking at the brushes. Another one of those things I have never done. Looks like it might take a while to take all apart and would leave that to a house call if needed.
You know, I did check that. The manual says this sensor should be about a quarter of an inch from the pully wheel. It looked a little closer so I moved it slightly out. Did no good. Gee, what a mess, huh?
Maybe I should disconnect the sensor and see what it does? Then maybe I'll know?
Well, I did like you said and it has definitely increased the speed. Now, at 6 mph I have to walk as fast as I can. I use to have to jog at 6 mph. So, this definitely increased the speed. I can live with this. I no longer care to run anyway. But, still need to walf fast. The 6 mph I am getting is about equal to my 4 mph that I use to have.
Hey Craig, Yes, I would love to enter some positive feedback, but cannot locate the place to do so?? You were great and helped me patiently for almost 2 hours. We never solved the problem completely, however, did solve part of the problem which I was happy enough with. Great job, Craig..........and Thanks.
Craig, also, I DID hit the Accept Button, but never saw a payment from my VISA. I'll keep checking my VISA account. If no payment was ever sent, please let me know and I'll try a re-send. I also tried to find a place on the web site that would allow me to pay you a little more, but could not find anything. A really hard web site to follow. Poorly put together.
