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 the 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 place 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.Do not operate the treadmill until it is properly assembled (see HOW TO SET UP THE TREADMILL on page 7).

7.Regularly inspect and tighten all parts of the treadmill.

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

9.The treadmill should not be used by persons weighing more than 350 pounds.

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

11.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.

 

12. When connecting the power cord (see page 10), plug the power cord into a grounded circuit

capable of carrying 20 or more amps. No other appliance should be on the same circuit. Do not

use an extension cord.

13.Keep the power cord 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 6 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.Never leave the treadmill unattended while it is running. Always remove the key, unplug the power cord, and switch the on/off circuit breaker to the off position when the treadmill is not in use.

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

20.When using iFIT.com CD’s, you will be alerted by an electronic “chirping” sound 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.

21.When using iFIT.com CD’s, 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 program.

3

22.Always remove iFIT.com CD’s from your CD player when you are not using them.

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

24.Make sure to perform all maintenance procedures outlined in this manual. Failure to do so will void the warranty and may result in damage to the treadmill.

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

the treadmill, and before performing the maintenance and adjustment procedures described in this manual. Servicing other than the procedures in this manual should be performed by an authorized service representative only.

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.

HOW TO

S ET

U P THE

T READMILL

Assembly requires two persons.

Set the treadmill in a cleared area and remove all packing materials. Do not

dispose of the packing materials until assembly is completed.

Assembly can be completed using the included

allen wrenches.

 

 

 

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. Slide the Right and Left Uprights (95, 97) onto the brack-

ets near the front of the Frame (76).

Make sure that the

Uprights are on the correct sides; the indicated holes

 

must be facing the treadmill.

 

Raise the Right Upright (95) until the lower hole in the front of the Upright is aligned with the upper hole in the bracket. Thread an Upright Bolt (96) into the Upright and the bracket. Do not fully tighten the Upright Bolt yet.

Repeat this step with the Left Upright (97).

2.While a second person holds the Handrail (91) near the Uprights (95, 97), feed the wires in both sides of the Handrail down into the Uprights. Pull the ends of the wires out of the lower ends of the Uprights. If there are wire ties on the ends of the wires, remove them.

Finger tighten four Handrail Bolts (99) into the Uprights

(95, 97) and the Handrail (91). Do not tighten the

Handrail Bolts yet. Be careful to avoid pinching the wires.

Note: The CD Holder (86) and the Cup Holder (85) are replaceable. If these parts become dislodged from the Console Base (89), simply press them back into place.

3.Connect the Network Wire (18), the TV Cable (17), the Network Wire Harness (59), and the Right Power Wire Harness (57) in the indicated locations. Push all of the

excess wire up into the Uprights (95, 97).

Make sure

that all wires are fully connected. Note: Regardless

 

of which console your treadmill has, connect all

 

wires so that the console can later be upgraded if de-

 

sired.

be used (see HOW TO MOVE THE TREADMILL on

 

 

 

page 9), make sure that both Rear Feet (5) and both

 

 

front Wheels (not shown) rest firmly on the floor. If the

 

 

treadmill rocks even slightly, turn the right Rear Foot

 

 

clockwise or counterclockwise until the rocking motion

 

 

is eliminated.

6. Make sure that all parts are properly tightened before you use the treadmill.

Keep the included allen

wrenches for adjustment purposes. To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the tread-

 

mill.

HOW TO

M OVE THE

T READMILL

Before moving the treadmill, make sure that the

power cord is unplugged. Note: It may be necessary to disconnect the CATV cable and the network

wire from the treadmill, depending on how far the treadmill will be moved.

Due to the size and weight of the treadmill, mov-

ing it requires two persons. While one person lifts the indicated end, firmly hold the handrails and tip

the treadmill forward until it rolls on the front wheels. Carefully move the treadmill to the desired location and then lower it back to the level position.

CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, use extreme caution while moving the treadmill. Do not attempt to move the treadmill over uneven surfaces.

HOW TO

C ONNECT THE

T READMILL

HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER CORD

 

This product must be grounded.

If it should malfunc-

tion or break down, grounding provides a path of least

resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of

electric shock.

 

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.

This product is for use on a dedicated, 20-amp, 120-volt circuit. No other appliance should be on the

same circuit. This

 

 

 

product is

 

 

 

 

 

 

equipped with a

 

1

 

 

 

 

cord having an

 

 

 

 

 

 

equipment-ground-

 

 

 

ing conductor and

 

 

 

a grounding plug.

 

 

 

Plug one end of

 

 

 

the cord into the

 

 

 

treadmill as shown

 

 

 

in drawing 1.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plug the grounding plug into to a standard NEMA 5-20 receptacle as shown in drawing 2. Do not modify the

plug or the receptacle. Do not use an adapter, a surge protector, or an extension cord.

HOW TO CONNECT A CATV CABLE

If your treadmill has the Workout TV console or the iFIT.com console, a CATV cable must be connected to the treadmill for cable TV stations to be viewed.

Locate the cable jack on the front of the treadmill. Connect the CATV cable to the cable jack.
