IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS

WARNING: To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the following important precautions and information before operating the treadmill.

1.It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that all users of this treadmill are adequately informed of all warnings and precautions.

2.Use the treadmill only as described in this manual.

3.Place the treadmill on a level surface, with at least eight feet of clearance behind it. Do not place the treadmill on any surface that blocks air openings. To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill.

4.Keep the treadmill indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put the treadmill in a garage or covered patio, or near water.

5.Do not operate the treadmill where aerosol products are used or where oxygen is being administered.

6.Keep children under the age of 12 and pets away from the treadmill at all times.

7.The treadmill should not be used by persons weighing more than 275 pounds.

8.Never allow more than one person on the treadmill at a time.

9.Wear appropriate exercise clothes when

using the treadmill. Do not wear loose clothes that could become caught in the treadmill. Athletic support clothes are recommended for

both men and women.

Always wear athletic

shoes. Never

use the treadmill with bare feet,

wearing only

stockings, or in sandals.

 

10.When connecting the power cord (see page 8), plug the power cord into a surge suppressor

(not included) and plug the surge suppressor into a grounded circuit capable of carrying 15 or more amps. No other appliance should be on

the same circuit. Do not use an extension cord.

11.Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on

page 8. To purchase a surge suppressor, see

your local IMAGE dealer or call 1-800-806-3651 and order part number 146148.

12.Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

13.Keep the power cord and the surge suppressor away from heated surfaces.

14.Never move the walking belt while the power is turned off. Do not operate the treadmill if the power cord or plug is damaged, or if the treadmill is not working properly. (See BEFORE YOU BEGIN on page 5 if the treadmill is not working properly.)

15.Never start the treadmill while you are standing on the walking belt. Always hold the handrails while using the treadmill.

16.The treadmill is capable of high speeds. Adjust the speed in small increments to avoid sudden jumps in speed.

17.The pulse sensor is not a medical device. Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensor is intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general.

18.Using hand weights and not holding the handrails may compromise your ability to maintain your balance. Hand weights should be used only by experienced users.

19.Never leave the treadmill unattended while it is running. Always remove the key, unplug

the power cord and move the on/off switch to the off position when the treadmill is not in use. (See the drawing on page 5 for the location of the on/off switch.)

20.Do not attempt to raise, lower, or move the treadmill until it is properly assembled. (See ASSEMBLY on page 6, and HOW TO FOLD

AND MOVE THE TREADMILL on page 22.) You

must be able to safely lift 45 pounds (20 kg) in order to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

3

21.Do not change the incline of the treadmill by placing objects under the treadmill.

22.When folding or moving the treadmill, make sure that the storage latch is fully closed.

25.Always remove iFIT.com CD’s and videos from your CD player or VCR when you are not using them.

26.Inspect and tighten all parts of the treadmill regularly.

23.When using iFIT.com CD’s and videos, an electronic “chirping” sound will alert you when the speed and/or incline of the treadmill is about to change. Always listen for the “chirp” and be prepared for speed and/or incline changes. In some instances, the speed and/or incline may change before the personal trainer describes the change.

24.When using iFIT.com CD’s and videos, you can manually override the speed and incline settings at any time by pressing the speed

and incline buttons. However, when the next “chirp” is heard, the speed and/or incline will change to the next settings of the CD or video program.

27.Never insert or drop any object into any opening.

28.DANGER: Always unplug the power cord immediately after use, before cleaning

the treadmill, and before performing the maintenance and adjustment procedures de-

scribed in this manual. Never remove the motor hood unless instructed to do so by an authorized service representative. Servicing other than the procedures in this manual

should be performed by an authorized service representative only.

29. This treadmill is intended for in-home use only. Do not use this treadmill in any commercial, rental, or institutional setting.

WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for persons over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems.

Read all instructions before using. ICON assumes no responsibility for personal injury or property damage sustained by or through the use of this product.

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT

THE PERFORMANT LUBE

TM WALKING BELT

Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with

PERFORMANT LUBE TM , a high-performance lubricant.

IMPORTANT: Never apply silicone spray or other substances to the walking belt or the walking platform. Such substances will deteriorate the walking belt and cause excessive wear.

HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD

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 product—if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by sudden voltage changes in your home’s 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

suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at the right). To purchase a surge suppressor, see

your local IMAGE dealer or call 1-800-806-3651 and order part number 146148.

Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that is

UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge suppressor must have a UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or less and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules.

The surge suppressor must be electrically rated

for 120 volts AC and 15 amps. There must be a monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate whether it is functioning properly. Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

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 suppressor, and plug the surge suppressor into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped outlets.

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 suppressor 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 elec-

trician to determine if the outlet box cover is grounded before using an adapter.

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE

The advanced console offers an impressive array of features to help you get the most from your exercise. When the console is in the manual mode, the speed

and incline of the treadmill can be changed with a touch

of a button. As you exercise, the console will provide continuous exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the built-in pulse sensor.

Three preset workout programs are also offered. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill to give you an effective workout. You can even create your own custom workout programs

and store them in memory for future use.

The console also features new iFIT.com interactive technology. IFIT.com technology is like having a personal trainer right in your home. Using the included audio cable, you can connect the treadmill to your home stereo, portable stereo, or computer and play

special iFIT.com CD programs (iFIT.com CDs are available separately). IFIT.com CD programs automatically control the speed and incline of the treadmill as a personal trainer guides you through every step of your workout. High-energy music provides added motivation.

Each CD features two programs designed by certified personal trainers.

In addition, you can connect the treadmill to your VCR and TV and play iFIT.com video programs (videocas-

settes are available separately). Video programs offer the same benefits as iFIT.com CD programs, but add

the excitement of working out with a class and an instructor—the hottest new trend at health clubs.

With the treadmill connected to your computer, you can also go to our Web site at www.iFIT.com and access basic programs, audio programs, and video pro-

grams directly from the internet. Additional options are soon to be available. See www.iFIT.com for details.
