Low Battery When the battery symbol flashes, replace batteries with new Alkaline AA (UM-3). Computer Settings/Calibration English/Metric Use a pen tip or pin to push the вЂњk/mвЂќ button on the back of the console to switch English/Metric. Calibration (Gear Ratios) Use a pen tip or pin to push the вЂњ3/5вЂќ button on the back of the console to switch between 1:3 and 1:5 ratios. (To check gear ratio, Consult your owners manual or count the revolutions of the flywheel By rotating the pedal crank one 360В° revolution. If the flywheel rotates 3 times, your ratio is 1:3, if it turns 5 times, then it is 1:5.) NOTE: Operating/Storage Temperatures Operating temperatures 0В°C/32В°F вЂ“ 50В°C/122В°F. Storage temperatures -10В°C/14В°F вЂ“ 60В°C/140В°F. Re-syncing Console/Speed Sensor Note: Pairing of the console and speed sensor has been performed during manufacturing. Replacing the battery does not break the connection; therefore, pairing should not be required. The console and speed sensor are paired to a unique frequency to avoid interference from other units. If the console or speed sensor is replaced, pairing of the two must be performed to re-establish the connection. If pairing is not performed, the speed sensor will not be able to transmit data to the console. Follow this procedure to pair the Console and Speed Sensor: Console/Speed Sensor Procedure NOTE: Please completely read all pairing instructions before beginning. 1. 2. 3. 4. Remove battery from Speed Sensor using a coin of proper thickness. Turn counter-clockwise to open. While the console is off, press and hold the UP and ENTER buttons simultaneously. The word SPEED will begin flashing and a 30 second countdown will begin. The console is now ready for pairing. Re-Install the battery into the Speed Sensor and secure battery cover clockwise WITHIN the 30 second countdown. When the countdown stops, the pairing procedure should be complete. If the meter displays E1 or E5, the pairing process has failed; please go back to Step 1 to restart the pairing process. If pairing fails again, contact Bodycraft if you are in the USA or Canada. Or contact your dealer. Troubleshooting 1. No speed reading or the reading fluctuates too much when pedaling. a. Remove CR2032 Battery from Speed Sensor for 30 Seconds. Replace and test. b.

Speed Sensor Battery is low. Replace with a new CR2032 Battery. e. The Console may be receiving interference. Try relocating the bike. f. The Console and Speed Sensor are too far apart. Max range is 2. вЂњLOвЂќ is flashing on the Console. Battery is low in the console. Replace with new Alkaline AA (UM-3) batteries. 3. No pulse reading or the pulse reading fluctuates is is incorrect. a. Heart Rate Belt battery* is low. Replace battery and test. *NOTE: Some heart rate belts do not have a replaceable battery. Purchase a new compatible Heart Rate Belt. b. You may be receiving interference from another Heart Rate Belt or an electrical device located near the monitor. You can try relocating the cycle, or turn off nearby TV's, computer monitors, wireless alarm sensors, lighting that require ballasts, etc. c. Console Battery is low. Replace with new Alkaline AA (UM-3) batteries. 4. Distance/RPM/Calories incorrect. a. Check that the ratio is properly set for your cycle. b. Check that the Metric/English value is properly set.
