Test the EMI filter on a treadmill

The EMI filter protects other users connected to the home network from interference. A malfunctioning filter may cause interference and damage to other electric equipment connected or may block the current supply to the motor control board.
Set up the multimeter on the OHM measurement
Test 1: from point A to point B, normal reading 0.4 Ohm (there must be continuity)

Test 2: from point C to point B, normal reading 0.4 Ohm (there must be continuity)

Test 3: from point A to point E, normal reading 1 or OL (there should be no continuity, if there was, it would indicate a short circuit)

Motor integrity test

Remove the faston connectors from the M + and M- motor board. Set the multimeter / voltmeter to 200 VDC. Connect a test lead to the red cable (M +) and one to the black cable (M-). Turn the flywheel with your hands.
Normal result:
the faster the motor is turning, the higher the voltage produced. If no voltage is seen and the cables are connected correctly, the motor must be replaced. The DC motor, in fact, acts like a dynamo

Making the most of cross trainers by properly adjusting the elliptical

The position of your feet on the elliptical (cross trainer) influences the way of working of the muscles of your legs:
- with the feet as far as possible, the quadriceps work a little more
- with the feet as far back as possible, the buttocks work a little more
Even if you tilt your torso a little further, you can see more work on your buttocks.
The energy expenditure and fatigue are greater when the movement of the legs also matches that of the arms.
When you feel tired, before stopping the exercise try to stop the arms by putting them on the appropriate supports and continue only with the legs.
Some useful tips for those starting to train with the cross trainer.
To get on the elliptical position laterally, rest the foot on the lower platform keeping your hands firmly resting on the fixed handlebars of the tool, then pushing on the supported leg also bring the other foot on the platform. Only once the movement is started, towards the front, carefully move the hands on the mobile supports, one at a time. Never move your legs without having your hands resting on either the fixed or mobile part.
Keep your feet all resting on the platform and wear appropriate footwear. Do not perform barefoot exercise.
Also for the descent, first stop the leg stroke, then holding firmly to the fixed part of the handlebar, descend sideways first with one foot then with the other.
Stay with your back straight if you suffer from backache.
