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, two feet on each side, and six inches in front. 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 oxygen is 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 400 pounds. Never allow more than one person on the treadmill at a time.

8.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.

9.When connecting the power cord (see page 13), 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.

10.Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 13. To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local NordicTrack dealer or call the tollfree telephone number on the front cover of this manual and order part number 146148, or see your local electronics store.

11.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, accelerate, or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

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

13.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 TROUBLESHOOTING on page 30 if the treadmill is not working properly.)

14.Read, understand, and test the emergency stop procedure before using the treadmill (see TREADMILL OPERATION on page 13).

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 sensors are not medical devices. Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensors are intended only as an exercise aids 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 move the reset/off circuit breaker to the “off” position when the treadmill is not in use. (See the drawing on page 6 for the location of the circuit breaker.)

19.Do not attempt to raise, lower, or move the treadmill until it is properly assembled. (See ASSEMBLY on page 7, and HOW TO FOLD AND MOVE THE TREADMILL on page 28.) You must be able to safely lift 45 pounds (20 kg) to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

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

3

21.Inspect and properly tighten all parts of the treadmill every three months.

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

23.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. 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.

24.The treadmill is intended for in-home use only. Do not use the treadmill in any commercial, rental, or institutional setting.

25.If an outside antenna or cable system is connected, be sure that the antenna or cable system is grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

26.An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep

from touching such power lines or circuits, as contact with them might be fatal.

27.To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove the cover or the back of the television. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

28.Upon completion of any service or repairs to the treadmill or the television, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to confirm that the unit is in proper operating condition.

Use No. 10 AWG (5.3mm2) copper, No. 8 AWG (8.4mm2) aluminum, No. 17 AWG (1.0mm2) copper-clad steel or bronze wire, or larger as a ground wire.

Secure an antenna lead-in and ground wires to the house with stand-off insulators spaced from 4 to 6 feet (1.22 to 1.83m) apart.

Mount an antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where the lead-in enters the house.

Use a jumper wire not smaller than No. 6 AWG (13.3mm2) copper, or the equivalent when a separate antenna-grounding electrode is used. See NEC Section 810-21 (j).

Note to CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

ASSEMBLY

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. 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.

Assembly requires the included allen wrench

and your own phillips screwdriver

. To

avoid damaging plastic parts, do not use power tools for assembly.

HOW TO USE THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR

HOW TO PUT ON THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR

The chest pulse sensor consists of two components— the chest strap and the sensor unit.

 

Chest Strap

 

Tabs

 

 

 

Tab

Sensor Unit

Sensor

Buckle

Unit

 

Store the chest pulse sensor in a warm, dry place. Do not store the chest pulse sensor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture.

Do not expose the chest pulse sensor 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 chest pulse sensor.

Clean the sensor unit using a damp cloth—never use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals. The chest strap may be hand washed and air dried.

CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLESHOOTING

Insert the tab on one end of the chest strap into the hole in one end of the sensor unit, as shown in the inset drawing above. The tab should be flush with the front of the sensor unit.

Next, wrap the chest

pulse sensor around your chest and attach the other end of the chest strap to the

sensor unit. Adjust the length of the chest strap, if neces-

sary. The chest pulse

sensor should be under your clothes, 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 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.

CHEST PULSE SENSOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Thoroughly dry the chest pulse sensor after each use. The chest pulse sensor is activated when the electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate monitor is put on; the chest pulse sensor shuts off when it is removed and the electrode areas are dried. If the chest pulse sensor is not dried after each use, it may remain activated longer than necessary, draining the battery prematurely.

The instructions on the following pages explain how the chest pulse sensor is used with the console. If the chest pulse sensor does not function properly, try the steps below.

Make sure that you are wearing the chest pulse sensor as described at the left. Note: If the chest pulse sensor does not function when positioned as described, move 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, rewet the electrode areas.

As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the console to display heart rate readings, the user must be within arm’s length of the console.

The chest pulse sensor 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 chest pulse sensor 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 32).
