ASSEMBLY
Assembly requires two people. Set the treadmill in a cleared area and remove all packing materials. Do not
dispose of the packing materials until assembly is completed. No tools are required for assembly.
Note: The underside of the treadmill walking belt is coated with high-performance lubricant. During shipping, a small amount of lubricant may be transferred to the top of the walking belt or the shipping carton. This is a normal condition and does not affect treadmill performance. If there is lubricant on top of the walking belt, simply wipe off the lubricant with a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner.
1. With the help of a second person, carefully raise the Uprights (115) until the treadmill is in the position shown.
2. Press the Lock Knob Sleeve (100) into the left Upright (115).
Remove the Lock Knob (99) from the Lock Pin (103). Make sure that the Lock Pin Collar (102) and the Spring (101) are on the Lock Pin. Insert the Lock Pin into the left Upright (115) and tighten the Lock Knob onto the Lock Pin.
3. Remove the backing from the Adhesive Clip (94). Press the Adhesive Clip onto the base of the Uprights (115) in the indicated location. Press the Allen Wrench (95) into the Adhesive Clip.

HOW TO PUT ON THE HEART RATE MONITOR
The heart rate monitor consists of two components: the chest strap and the sensor unit (see the drawing below). Insert the tab on one end of the chest strap through one of the holes in the sensor unit. Press the end of the sensor unit under the buckle on the chest strap. The tab should be almost flush with the front of the sensor unit.
Next, wrap the heart rate moni­tor around your chest and attach the other end of the chest strap to the sen­sor unit. Adjust the length of the chest strap, if necessary. The heart rate moni­tor should be under your clothing, tight against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. Make sure that the logo on the sensor unit is facing forward and is right-side-up.
Pull the sensor unit away from your body a few inches and locate the two electrode areas on the inner side. The electrode areas are the areas covered by shallow ridges. Using saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution, wet both electrode areas. Return the sensor unit to a position against your chest.
HEART RATE MONITOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE
¥ Thoroughly dry the heart rate monitor after each
use. The heart rate monitor is activated when the electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate monitor is put on; the heart rate monitor shuts off when it is removed and the electrode areas are dried. If the heart rate monitor is not dried after each
use, it may remain activated longer than necessary, draining the battery prematurely.
¥ Store the heart rate monitor in a warm, dry place.
Do not store the heart rate monitor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture.
¥ Do not expose the heart rate monitor to direct
sunlight for extended periods of time; do not expose it to temperatures above 122¡ Fahrenheit (50¡ Celsius) or below 14¡ Fahrenheit (-10¡ Celsius).
¥ Do not excessively bend or stretch the sensor unit
when using or storing the heart rate monitor.
¥ Clean the sensor unit using a damp clothÑnever
use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals. The chest strap may be hand washed and air dried.
HEART RATE MONITOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING
The instructions on the following pages explain how the heart rate monitor is used with the console. If the letters ÒPLSÓ appear in the CALS./FAT CALS./ PULSE display or if the displayed heart rate is excessively high or low, try the steps below.
¥ Make sure that the heart rate monitor is under your
clothing, tight against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. The logo on the sensor unit must be facing forward and be right-side-up. Note: If the heart rate monitor does not function when positioned as described, try moving it slightly lower or higher on your chest.
¥ Use saline solution such as saliva or contact lens
solution to wet the two electrode areas on the sensor unit. If heart rate readings do not appear until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.
¥ As you walk or run on the treadmill, position your-
self near the center of the walking belt. For the
console to display heart rate readings, the user must be within armÕs length of the console.
¥ The heart rate monitor is designed to work with
people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate reading problems may be caused by medical conditions such as premature ventricular contrac­tions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia.
¥ The operation of the heart rate monitor can be
affected by magnetic interference caused by high power lines or other sources. If it is suspected that this is a problem, try relocating the treadmill.
¥ The CR2032 battery may need to be replaced.

THE PERFORMANT LUBETMWALKING BELT
Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with PERFORMANT LUBETM, a high-performance lubricant.
Important: Never apply silicone spray or other sub­stances to the walking belt or the walking platform. They will deteriorate the walking belt and cause ex­cessive wear.
HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD
Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by sudden voltage changes in your homeÕs power. Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can re­sult from weather conditions or from other appliances being turned on or off.
To decrease the pos­sibility of your tread­mill being damaged, always use a surge protector (not in­cluded) with your treadmill.
Surge protectors are sold at most hardware stores and department stores. Use only a UL­listed surge protector, rated at 15 amps, with a 14-gauge cord of five feet or less in length.
This product must be grounded. If it should
malfunction or break down, grounding pro­vides a path of least re­sistance for electric cur­rent to reduce the risk of
electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. Plug the power cord into a surge
protector, and plug the surge protector into an ap­propriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illus­trated in drawing 1 below. A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated in drawing 2 may be used to connect the surge protector to a 2-pole recep­tacle as shown in drawing 2 if a properly grounded out­let is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (drawing 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used it must be held in place by a metal screw. Some 2-pole receptacle outlet box
covers are not grounded. Contact a qualified elec­trician to determine if the outlet box cover is grounded before using an adapter.
DANGER: Improper connection
of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in an increased risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service­man if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the productÑif it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet in­stalled by a qualified electrician.
