One of the advantages of walking or running on the treadmill is the option to adjust the incline. You can raise the incline a bit to compensate for the lack of wind resistance, lift it higher to simulate hill walking or vary the incline as part of an interval-training session. If the incline function on your NordicTrack 2500 treadmill malfunctions, you should be able to recalibrate the machine in seconds.

Step 1

Place the key into the machine. The key’s slot is located on the bottom of the console, below the start and stop buttons.

Step 2

Press any of the incline buttons and then remove the key from the machine while the incline is changing. Pause for a few seconds and then put the key back into the slot.

Step 3

Wait as the treadmill automatically shifts to the highest possible incline and then descends to the lowest level. The treadmill should now be recalibrated.
