  last starfighter 12:11 03 Mar 2009

Can anyone suggest anything too me please, we was given a treadmill 6 months ago that cost the person who gave us it near on a a grand (Apparently) & they said it had gone wrong somewhere.?
What it is doing is when i switch the plug on it runs at full speed & we cant reduce it to a normal walking or running speed so its on max all the time which is useless, also the Panel doesnt seem too work none of the buttons repond.?

Why is this question in the PC advisor forum?

Put make and model number into Google and search. There may be other users with the same problem who have found answers.

"Why is this question in the PC advisor forum?"

Well it will have a small computerized panel on the treadmill so I suppose that would qualify. We answer questions on mobile phones, why not treadmills.

I would think that there would be some way to reset the computer panel which may\maynot help, maybe just disconnecting the panel for a while. I have looked at the linked to site and the "Contact Us" link goes to a site in China so I don't think any help would be forthcoming. What about trying to contact the supplier the person who gave it to you bought it from, they should be able to point you in the right direction.

Thankx, they dont have any details of the company they bought it from..?
Its in such a mint condition i really dont want to throw it, i wonder if i paid for a electrician to have a look..? what do you think..?

As for the panel its also in mint condiion..?

It may help to contact an electreician as you suggest, as canarieslover suggests post the make and model number here, it may help in tracking down a manual or a UK supplier.

From what has been said here, it seems that anything with a computer installed would qualify for inclusion on this forum. Now about my car. Can anybody tell me why........
