9

1.2SETUP

Read the Operation Manual before setting up the Life Fitness Treadmill. Place the treadmill where it will be used before beginning the setup procedure.

ELECTRICAL POWER REQUIREMENTS

The Life Fitness Treadmill is intended for use on a normal 120-Volt electrical circuit in the United States and Canada. The following table provides the current rating for this product based on supply voltage. Make sure that this treadmill model supports the proper line voltage for the installation location before plugging it into the outlet.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This Life Fitness product must be properly grounded. If the unit malfunctions or breaks down, proper grounding provides a path of least resistance for the electric current, which reduces the risk of shock to anyone touching or using the equipment. Each unit is equipped with an electrical cord, which includes an equipment grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be inserted into an outlet that has been properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

A temporary adapter MUST NOT BE USED to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle in North America. If a properly grounded, 20-amp outlet is not available, one must be installed by a qualified electrician. Models drawing 16 amps or more must be installed on a dedicated line.

IL EST ABSOLUMENT INTERDIT d'employer un adaptateur temporaire pour brancher cette fiche sur une prise à deux pôles en Amérique du Nord. Si aucune prise de 20 A correctement mise à la terre n'est disponible, il convient d'en faire installer une par un électricien qualifié. Les modèles utilisant 16 A ou plus doivent être installés sur des lignes qui leur sont réservées.

DANGER: A risk of electrical shock may result from improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor. Check with a qualified electrician if in doubt as to proper grounding technique. DO NOT modify the plug provided with the product. If it will not fit an electrical outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Un branchement incorrect du conducteur de mise à la terre peut entraîner des risques de décharge électrique. Consultez un électricien si des doutes subsistent quant à la technique de mise à la terre. NE MODIFIEZ PAS la fiche fournie avec l'appareil. Si elle ne s'adapte pas à une prise, faites en installer une correcte par un électricien qualifié.

Life Fitness Treadmill User Manual

WAX BAG INSTRUCTIONS

To install the wax bag, turn the power off at the ON/OFF switch, and unplug the unit from the electrical outlet.

Remove the access panel. Remove the two screws (A) securing the wax bag access panel (B), located on the user left side of the unit. Remove the panel and set it aside.

Install the wax bag. Verify that the wax bag protective liner (C) is open and ready to receive the wax bag (D). Remove the new wax bag from its packaging and carefully insert it into the access hole. The wax bag hose faces the rear of the unit. Remove the two wingnuts (E) located just inside the access hole. Align the mounting holes located in the wax bag flange with the two wingnut studs (F). Secure the wax bag with the two wingnuts.

CAUTION: Be careful to not rip or damage the wax bag on the wingnuts or wingnut studs when inserting the new wax bag.

MISE EN GARDE : lors de l'insertion du nouveau sac de cire, veillez à ne pas le déchirer ou l'endommager sur les écrous papillon ou sur leurs goujons.

Attach the hose clamp. Slide the hose clamp (G) over the end of

the wax bag outlet hose (H). Position the clamp approximately three inches from the end of the hose and engage it, clamping it

(1) onto the wax bag hose to prevent spillage.

Connect the wax bag hose to the pump inlet hose. Cut the end of the wax bag hose one half-inch from the end. Slide it onto the barbed nozzle on the wax pump inlet hose (J). Be sure to fully seat the wax bag hose onto the inlet hose. Release the hose clamp (2).

CAUTION: Failure to release the hose clamp greatly shortens belt life.

MISE EN GARDE : la bride de serrage doit être relâchée sous peine de réduire de façon importante la durée de vie du tapis.

Replace the access panel. Replace the wax bag access panel, and secure it with the two screws.

11

HOW TO POSITION AND STABILIZE THE LIFE FITNESS TREADMILL

Following all safety instructions in Section 1.1, move the treadmill to the location in which it will be used. See Section 7, titled Specifications, for the dimensions of the

footprint. Allow a distance of eight inches, or 21 centime-

ters, between the treadmill and other units on either side. Allow a distance of six feet, or two meters, from the rear of the treadmill to any object or surface.

After placing the unit where it will be used, check its stability. If there is even a slight rocking motion or the unit is not stable, determine which stabilizing leg is not resting on the floor. To adjust, loosen the JAM NUT (A), and turn the STABILIZING LEG (B) until the rocking motion ceases, and both stabilizing legs rest firmly on the floor. Retighten the JAM NUT.

NOTE: It is extremely important that the stabilizing leg be correctly adjusted for proper operation. An unbalanced unit may cause striding belt misalignment.

POWER SWITCH

Located on the front panel at the base of the treadmill, the ON/OFF switch has two positions: "I" (one) for ON and "0" (zero) for OFF.

SETTING THE CLOCK

The unit contains a clock, which is used for system maintenance and event tracking. After the unit has been turned on, the display will prompt for the following:

"Would you like to change the clock from GMT to local time - if YES press Enter - if NO press Clear"

It is not mandatory to change the clock setting. To accept the current settings, press the CLEAR key.

To change the setting, press the ENTER key. The MESSAGE CENTER displays: “CHOOSE DISPLAY MODE - 12 HOUR MODE AM PM”. Use an ARROW key to toggle the setting to CHOOSE DISPLAY MODE - 24 HOUR MODE. To accept the mode, press the ENTER key.

The current time (in Greenwich Mean Time) will be displayed.

Use the TIME arrows to change the hours

Use the INCLINE arrows to change the minutes

Use the SPEED arrows to change the seconds

When finished press the ENTER key. The MESSAGE CENTER displays “UPDATING CLOCK”. At this point, the clock has been reset, and the normal startup procedure continues.

This prompt appears for the first five times that the unit is turned on, including power-ups at the factory.

12

CENTERING THE BELT

After installing and levelling the treadmill, check the belt to ensure that it is tracking properly. First, plug the power cord into an appropriate outlet. See Electrical Requirements at the beginning of this section for details. Then, turn the treadmill ON.

Have one person stand on the platforms on either side of the treadmill belt. Do not stand on the belt at this time. Press the QUICK START key, and increase the speed to 4.0 miles per hour (MPH), or 6.4 kilometers per hour (KPH), using the SPEED UP arrow.

If the striding belt moves to the right while it is running, have a second person turn the right tension bolt a quarter-turn clockwise, and then turn the left tension bolt (A) a quarter-turn counterclockwise. See the illustration below. This action sets the striding belt tracking back to center of the roller.

If the striding belt moves to the left, turn the left tension bolt a quarter-turn clockwise and then turn the right tension bolt a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to start the striding belt tracking back to center of roller.

Repeat these adjustments until striding belt appears centered. Allow the belt to continue running for several minutes to be sure that the tracking is stabilized.

NOTE: Do not exceed one full turn of the adjusting screws in either direction. If, after one full turn, the belt does not track properly, contact Customer Support Services. The phone numbers are listed in Section 6.7, titled How to Obtain Product Service.

13

SMART STOPTM BELT STOP SYSTEM

The Smart StopTM belt stop system senses that a user is standing on the belt. If the user steps off while the striding belt is in motion, the system automatically pauses the workout. During the FIT TEST, the workout is aborted. To continue the workout, press the ENTER key.

FITNESS NETWORKING

The two interchangeable networking ports (A) are located on the back of the display console. These openly accessible ports allow the treadmill to be connected to a fitness entertainment system and/or a fitness network, such as FitLinxx®.

Networking: The built-in networking ports allow the unit to exchange workout information with a fitness network database.

Fitness Entertainment: The built-in network ports allow the treadmill to power a third-party receiver for use with an entertainment system, such as the Cardio Theater® system or BroadcastVisionTM.

14

POWER CORD ROUTING

The power cord can be run straight from the treadmill, shortened and exited out the user-front left side, or run under the frame and exited out the user right-rear side of the treadmill.

For efficient cord management, the following routing options are recommended:

With the power cord unplugged, insert the clips in the appropriate holes. See the illustration below. Use Hole Pattern 1 or 2 to locate the clips and secure the power cord with the clips, taking up any slack between clips.

NOTE: It may be necessary to tip the treadmill to route the power cord properly.

To plug the power cord into an outlet in front of the treadmill, use Hole Pattern 1 for outlets located at the front of the machine.

To plug the power cord into an outlet in rear of the treadmill, use Hole Pattern 2 for outlets located at the rear of the machine.

Make sure that there is a 6-foot clearance behind the treadmill. Contact Life Fitness Customer Service for a longer power cord if necessary.

WARNING: Insure that the power cord (A) does not contact the striding belt or get pinched between the frame (C), lift arm (B) or the wheel; failure to follow this warning may result in serious injury.

AVERTISSEMENT : assurez-vous que le cordon d'alimentation n'entre pas en contact avec le tapis et ne soit pas pincé entre le cadre, le bras de levage ou

la roue. Le non respect de cet avertissement peut provoquer de graves blessures.

NOTE: When using Pattern 1, it is extremely important to route the power cord BETWEEN the lift frame and the main frame.
