Press the "Speed +" key slowly until you see 85 on the console, (at this point the display is going to show the percentage of motor usage and also the actual walking belt speed) at 85% motor usage your top speed should be between 10 and 10.5 MPH or (of 12 or 12.5) depending on the treadmill. You must know your treadmills top speed. (Important the motor may be damaged if you set the maximum speed higher than the maximum speed that your treadmill is mades for). If the speed is higher than 10.5 or 12.5 then you need to turn the potentiometer down to the correct level. If the speed is to low you need to turn the potentiometer higher. Once the speed is correct you are done calibrating the Speed. Press the (-) speed key to lower the percentage to (0).
