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 (65) until the treadmill is in the position shown.
2. Press the Lock Knob Sleeve (68) into the left Upright
Remove the Lock Knob (67) from the Lock Pin (72).
Make sure that the Lock Pin Collar (70) and the Spring
(69) are on the Lock Pin. Insert the Lock Pin into the left
Upright (65) and tighten the Lock Knob onto the Lock Pin.
3. Make sure that all parts are tightened before you use the treadmill. Keep the included allen wrench in a
secure place. The allen wrench is used to adjust the walking belt (see pages 22 and 23). To protect the floor
or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill.
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 the hole in one end of 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 moni-
tor around your
chest and
attach the other
end of the chest
strap to the sen-
sor unit. Adjust
the length of the
chest strap, if
necessary. The
heart rate moni-
tor 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.
¥ 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.
The instructions on the following pages explain
how the heart rate monitor is used with the console.
If the heart rate monitor does not function properly,
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 contrac-
tions (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 (see
page 24).

Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with
, a high-performance lubricant.
IMPORTANT: Never apply silicone spray or other
substances to the walking belt or the walking plat-
form. They will deteriorate the walking belt and
cause excessive wear.
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 re-
sult from weather conditions or from other appliances
being turned on or off.
To decrease the pos-
sibility of your tread-
mill being damaged,
always use a surge
protector (not in-
cluded) with your
Surge protectors are
sold at most hardware
stores and department
stores. Use only a UL-
listed 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 pro-
vides a path of least re-
sistance for electric cur-
rent 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 ap-
propriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and
This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit,
and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illus-
trated 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 recep-
tacle as shown in drawing 2 if a properly grounded out-
let 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 elec-
trician 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 service-
man 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 in-
stalled by a qualified electrician.
