Treadmill rubber tread has strong odor
Turn off and unplug the unit
before making any adjustments. Check the belt alignment on the
treadmill. If the treadmill is making noise or you smell burnt rubber,
the belt may be loose or out of alignment. There should be a belt roller
on the side or the front of the unit. You can use a hex wrench or an
adjustable wrench to loosen the belt so it can be properly aligned. Make
sure you tighten the belt so it does not rub against the machine.
Consult the user manual for specific instructions in adjusting the belt.
Reposition the heart rate
monitor. If the monitor does not show a reading, it may need to be
repositioned. The monitor should be placed against your skin so the
sensor is facing toward your body and the HealthRider logo is facing
away from you. The monitor will only work if you stay on the treadmill,
walking in the middle of the belt.
Test the hand grip monitors for a
correct reading. These are the metal plates that are secured to the
hand railing. If the plates are dirty, they may not function correctly.
Wipe them clean with a damp cloth. Your palm will need to wrap
completely around the plates at all times for a proper reading.
Reset the unit if the treadmill
still does not function correctly. Unplug the unit from the electrical
outlet. Leave it unplugged for about one minute and then turn the
machine back on. Remove the safety key from the treadmill and reinsert
it into the key slot. Taking out the key will reset the unit, clearing
all memory and resetting it to factory defaults. Read More At : Exercise & Fitness...
