OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Initially, you may want to keep both hands on the side rails until you feel comfortable walking on your PaceMaster. Once you feel
comfortable, try removing your hands to let them swing naturally, as you would when walking outdoors. Always hold on to the side rail or
front handle bar with one hand when operating the buttons of the control panel.
THE FIRST STEP
Stand on the center of the treadmill belt. Attach the garment clip on the end of the magnetic safety key to your clothing at waist level.
Insert the safety key into the recess on the control panel keyboard.
METRIC UNITS
PaceMaster treadmills can be configured to operate in English (lbs, mph, and miles) or Metric units (kg, kph, and kilometers) of measure.
To determine the present configuration of your PaceMaster insert the magnetic key, if “USA” is displayed in the “RESULTS” window it is
configured in English, if “Eur” is displayed in the “RESULTS” window, it is configured in Metric. To change between English and Metric
insert the magnetic key, as soon as the current setting (USA or EUR) is displayed in the Results window, press and hold the SELECT
(PREVIEW) button until the setting changes. Press PAUSE (ENTER) to confirm the selection.
SETTING YOUR WEIGHT
Your PaceMaster calculates caloric expenditure based on the formula developed by the American College of Sports Medicine. To ensure
accuracy, your weight is required. Once the magnetic key has been inserted, the default weight of 150 lbs. (68 kg.) is shown in the
INCLINE display and the SET WEIGHT indicator will be blinking. By pressing the INCLINE up or down buttons, you will increase or
decrease the weight value, press PAUSE (ENTER) when done.
WARM UP AND COOL DOWN
By warming up prior to beginning the aerobic phase of your workout, you accomplish 2 goals; you stretch and warm up the muscles of the
back and extremities and create a slight acceleration of the heart rate so that the body can move gradually into the higher heart rate of the
aerobic phase. The aerobic phase should be followed by a minimum 5-minute cool down in which you keep moving at a slower pace. This
allows your heart rate to gradually decline and your body to gently adjust to the end of a workout instead of abruptly stopping. The cool
down phase also allows blood to be pumped from the lower extremities back to the central circulatory system. Simply put, the function of
warming up and cooling down is to ease you from a resting state into an active state and back to a resting state.
The treadmill’s computer, based on your main exercise starting and finishing speeds respectively, automatically calculates warm up and
cool down speeds.
When in the warm up mode, the TIME display window counts down from 5 minutes and the Warm Up indicator light will blink. When in the
Cool Down mode, the TIME display window counts down from 5 minutes and the Cool Down indicator light will blink.
To add warm up and/or cool down to a TIMED workout press the Warm Up / Cool Down button. The indicator light will blink, indicating that
the desired mode has been added to your workout. You will also notice that the workout time increases by 5 minutes for each addition.
To shorten the warm up mode, press the Warm Up / Cool Down button once. Warm up will be ended and you will advance into the main
exercise. To shorten the main exercise, press the Warm Up / Cool Down button and you will automatically begin the cool down phase. To
end the cool down, press STOP and your session will come to a close.
A cool down phase can be added to any workout (even if it wasn’t chosen prior to beginning the workout) by pressing the Warm Up / Cool
Down button.
Now you are ready to choose your workout mode. Whether it is Quick Start, Timed Workout (Manual), or one of the four Variable Intensity
Workouts, the following pages give you step-by-step instructions on how to use each workout.

EXCLUSIVE PACEMASTER FEATURES
Exercise Preview
You can see exactly what you will accomplish prior to beginning a Timed Workout (Manual), or Variable Intensity Workout. An EXERCISE
PREVIEW predicts the total distance, caloric expenditure and Aerobic Points to be earned based on the time, incline and speed you chose.
After you have selected a Variable Intensity Workout, or have set the speed, time and incline parameters for a Timed Workout (Manual),
the predicted calories, Aerobic points, and distance will be displayed in the RESULTS window. Press the SELECT button to change
thedisplayed result. Note that any adjustments to speed, time and incline will change those figures.
Aerobic Points
One of the main reasons people stop exercising is because they don’t see the physical changes they expected. Results, however, can
only be realized when you are training properly. For this reason, the Aerobic Point System has been incorporated into the design of
PaceMaster treadmills since 1968.
The Aerobic Point System was developed by Dr. Kenneth Cooper, the Father of Aerobics and renowned founder of The Cooper Aerobics
Center in Dallas, TX, to measure the aerobic benefit of the workout. Dr. Cooper’s formula compares the energy costs of aerobic activity
from the mathematical relationships between the oxygen expenditures assigned to each exercise at a given intensity and duration. This
formula is built into the PaceMaster computer to automatically calculate the number of AEROBIC POINTS you earn for each workout
Dr. Cooper states in his book, The Aerobics Program For Total Well Being; “The main idea of this system is that, in order to stay in good
shape and move toward a goal of total well-being, a person must earn a certain number of points each week by doing a certain amount of
aerobic exercise.” His research has determined that a man should work up to a minimum of 32 points per week and a woman should
work up to a minimum of 27 points per week. The number of weekly points you earn correlates with your level of fitness. The fitness
categories are:
Classification
Very Poor
Poor
Fair
Good
Excellent
Superior
Average Points per Week
Men
Less than 10
10-20
21-31
32-50
51-74
75+
Women
Less than 8
8-15
16-26
27-40
41-64
65+
If you have not been on a regular exercise program, it is highly recommended that you gradually work up to your desired fitness category
and then develop a maintenance program.
You can see the number of AEROBIC POINTS you will earn prior to beginning your workout by pressing the SELECT button until Aerobic
Points indicator is illuminated. To design a workout based on the number of AEROBIC POINTS you want to earn, follow the instructions
below for PERSONAL ELECTRONIC TRAINER.
Personal Electronic Trainer
Another feature exclusive to PaceMaster treadmills is the PERSONAL ELECTRONIC TRAINER. You can create a workout based on the
number of Aerobic Points you want to earn or the number of calories you want to burn.
To create a workout based on Aerobic Points:
Step One:
Determine how many times a week you will be exercising and how many weekly points you want to earn. For example, if you plan on
exercising 4 times a week and your goal is to earn 32 points that week, you will need to earn 8 points per workout.
Step Two:
Insert the safety key into its recess on the control panel.

Care and Maintenance
The following section describes necessary maintenance for your PaceMaster treadmill. This maintenance is the responsibility of the
purchaser and is not covered under our warranty. Failure to perform this necessary maintenance could result in damage to your treadmill.
CAUTION: Unplug your treadmill before attempting any cleaning or maintenance.
Deck and Tread Belt Cleaning
The running belt on your PaceMaster rides on a low friction, maintenance-free deck. Proper operation will be jeopardized if any water,
dirt, solvents, fluids or abrasive materials come between the tread belt and the deck. For this reason, extra care must be used in keeping
the belt clean. Use a soft, damp cloth to remove dust, dirt and other substances from the area between the belt and the side of the
machine. Do not clean the tread belt by turning on the treadmill.
Lubrication
The motor and roller bearings are sealed for maintenance free operation and require no lubrication. The deck and tread belt are lubricated
at the factory and are also maintenance free. Any attempt to lubricate underneath the running belt could result in damage.
The side rails are made of steel. By occasionally applying a coat of automotive wax to them will help prevent rusting.
Centering the Tread Belt
To improve belt life, the belt should be reasonably centered. To center the belt, walk on the treadmill at 2.5 mph for a few minutes.
Determine whether the belt drifts too far to the left or right side. If adjustments are required, stop the treadmill and follow the steps listed
below. Never make adjustments while the tread belt is moving.
TIP: If the tread belt is reasonably centered (no closer than 1/8” to the left or right deck shroud) no adjustments are necessary.
Unnecessary adjustments can result in premature belt wear.
CAUTION: Unplug your treadmill before attempting any cleaning or maintenance.
Step One: (figure 6)
If the belt is drifting to the left, using a 3/16” Allen wrench, turn the left-hand
adjustment bolt (3) a quarter turn clockwise and the right-hand adjustment
bolt (4) a quarter turn counter-clockwise.
If the belt is drifting to the right, using a 3/16” Allen wrench, turn the right-hand
adjustment bolt (4) a quarter turn clockwise and the left-hand adjustment
bolt (3) a quarter turn counter-clockwise.
Step Two:
Walk on the belt for 1 minute, observing belt tracking. If the belt moves to one
side, repeat step 1.

and wiring harness) and all wiring for cuts or damage. (See Figure 2 page 6).
Error Code 307
Indicates that there was no speed sensor signal at start up. Check the speed sensor connection and wiring.
Error Code 425
After start is pressed, the tread belt does not move and then “Err 425” appears. To reset this error code you must unplug the treadmill from
the wall outlet for 10 seconds, and then check the items listed below.
Check the drive motor wire connection to the power supply.
Check the ceramic fuse (20 Amp – 250 V) on the power supply.
Elevation Error Codes
e217
Err
“Err” in the Incline Display - indicates a problem with the elevation system. Note: The treadmill will still function with the “Err” displayed
in the incline Display, but the elevation system will not function. To determine the exact error code follow the procedure below.
Insert the magnetic key, For the purpose of this test, DO NOT stand on the tread belt
If “Err” appears in the incline display after pressing the Start/Quick, Stop/Reset, or Pause/Enter button, the control panel is not receiving an
elevation reading. Start the treadmill and press the Up or Down Incline button, an “E 219” will appear in the Results Display. Check the
both wiring connections between the elevation motor and the power supply. Also, check the wiring harness for cuts or visual damage.
If “Err” appears in the incline display after attempting an elevation change, the control panel did not see elevation movement. Touch the
incline Up or Down button and an “E 217” will appear in the Data Window. Check the wiring connection between the elevation motor and
the power supply. Check the elevation fuse to see if it has blown. If the fuse has blown, replace fuse.

TROUBLESHOOTING (cont’d)
Noises
A Clicking, Rubbing or Grinding noise is present while the tread belt is moving.
Remove all items from the cup holders on either side of the display
Visually confirm that NO foreign objects (children’s toys, pet’s toys, etc…) are underneath, on top of, or against the treadmill.
With the tread belt stopped visually check to see if the tread belt is reasonable centered, if it is not please refer to “centering the tread belt”
under the maintenance section of this manual.
Hesitation of the Tread belt
Hesitation of the tread belt usually indicates slippage of either the tread belt (the belt you walk on) or the drive belt (the belt connecting the
drive roller to the motor). To determine which of these belts is slipping, first adjust the drive belt tension and test to see if the slippage
stops. If the hesitation is not corrected than the tread belt tension needs adjustment.
CAUTION: Unplug your treadmill before attempting any cleaning or maintenance.
Drive Belt Tension Adjustment
Step One:
Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the 2 screws that hold the front of the
motor cover in place and remove the motor cover.
1
Step Two: (figure 7)
Locate the four motor mount screws (item 1 in fig 7) as shown in the diagram
and loosen them each two turns each using the 3/16" allen wrench.
Continued on the following page
Figure 7

TROUBLESHOOTING (cont’d)
Step Three: (figure 8)
Locate the drive belt adjustment screw (item 2 in fig 8) in the lower
front end of the treadmill. Insert the allen wrench into the drive belt
adjustment screw and turn the screw 1/2 turn clockwise.
Step Four: (figure 7)
Complete the adjustment by tightening the four motor mount
screws (item 1 in fig 7).
Step Five:
Walk on the treadmill to determine if the slippage is decreased or
eliminated.
Step Six:
Figure 8
If no improvement is observed, the hesitation may be caused by a loose
tread belt - see "Tread belt tension adjustment" below. If improvement is
noticed but slippage is still present, repeat steps 2 through 5. If you tighten the drive belt adjustment screw 1 1/2 turns and there is still
hesitation (slippage) contact your authorized PaceMaster dealer. Tightening the drive belt adjustment screw more than 1 1/2 turns can
result in bearing damage to the motor and/or drive roller.
Tread Belt Tension Adjustment
Step One:
Locate the two tread belt adjustment screws (#3 & #4 in fig 9) as shown.
Step Two:
Turn both the left and right tread belt adjustment screws 1/2 turn clockwise.
Step Three:
Walk on the treadmill to see if the adjustment you made decreased the
slippage.
Step Four:
If a significant decrease in slippage was observed, go to step 2. If you
tighten the tread belt 1 1/2 turns per side and slippage is still present, do not
continue to adjust the tread belt tension. Contact your authorized
PaceMaster dealer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Why is time displayed as a negative number (i.e. – 1:15)?
A. The treadmill’s computer displays time in minutes and seconds (MM:SS) for workout times less than 1 Hour, and in hours and
minutes (– H:MM) for workout times 1 hour or greater. – 1:15 represents one hour and 15 minutes.
Q. Why can’t I change the speed in warm up or cool down?
A. Warm up and cool down speeds are based on parameters recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine and
cannot be overridden. To avoid undue cardiovascular stress, warm up begins at a lower percentage of the workout’s starting
speed and gradually takes you to the workouts starting speed. Conversely, cool down gradually reduces speed based on a
percentage of the workouts ending speed.
Q. How do I find out the total hours and miles on my treadmill?
A. Insert the magnetic safety key, when the “set weight” indicator begins to flash, press and hold the WORKOUT INTENSITY
LEVEL + button the total time and mileage will appear in their respective windows and the power supply software version will
appear in the INCLINE
Q. Can I eliminate warm up and/or cool down from a Variable Intensity Workout?
A. Yes. If you wish to remove the warm up and/or cool down phases prior to starting your workout, press the WARM UP/COOL
DOWN button until the corresponding indicator light is no longer illuminated. While in the warm up mode, press the Warm Up /
Cool Down button and you will advance into the main phase of your workout. While in the main workout mode press the Warm
Up / Cool Down button to advance to the cool down
Q. Why is dust accumulating behind and/or underneath my treadmill?
A. This is normal. The dust is a combination of the PVC belt material and the phenolic deck surface as it wears.
