PROBLEM: If the treadmill acts irregularly during a workout, there may be electromagnetic/cellular signal interference.
Symptoms of this kind of interference include the following:

  • Console display is flickering while belt is acting erratically (Slowing down, then speeding up while console display is flickering)
  • Console turns off completely and belt stops
  • Console turns off completely, but belt still runs. Engaging the emergency stop should stop the belt; resetting the emergency stop causes the belt to move while the console is off.
  • Console shows partial or incorrect numbers
  • Speed/incline may change on console without user input
  • May hear a repeating ticking/clicking sound from MCB
  • Console may turn off then back on

SOLUTION:

  1. Remove any device(s) from the reading rack and check if symptoms reoccur.
  2. Turn off the device’s cell network or place it in airplane mode.
  3. US Only: Verify if unit has an EMI kit installed. If not, send EMI shield kit PN ZMS4011056. (All T101 consoles and overlays have the copper foil EMI kit pre-installed since Aug 2021.
