Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with PERFORMANT LUBETM, ahigh-performancelubricant.

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.


DANGER: Improper connection of theequipment-groundingconductor 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 theproduct—ifit 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).

Surge suppressors are sold at most hardware stores and department stores. Use only a single-outletsurge 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.

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.

This product is for use on a nominal 120-voltcircuit, 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 a2-polereceptacle 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-coloredrigid 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 electrician to determine if the outlet box cover is grounded before using an adapter.

sition before the walking belt can be restarted.

Follow the steps below to operate the console.











1Insert the key fully into the power switch.

After a moment, the

four displays and one indicator in the LED track will light.

3Start the walking belt.

Slowly slide the speed control to the right until the walking belt begins to move at slow speed. Step onto the walking belt and begin exercising. Change the speed of the walking belt as desired by sliding the speed control.

To stop the walking belt, step onto the foot rails and slide the speed control to the RESET position. After a few seconds, the displays will pause.


4Follow your progress with the LED track and the four displays.

The LED Track—The LED

track represents a distance of 1/4 mile. As you exercise, the indicators around the

track will light one at a time until you

have completed 1/4 mile. A new lap will then begin.

DISTANCE/LAPS display—This display

shows the distance that you have walked and

the number of laps you have completed. The

display will change from one number to the other every seven seconds. An “L” will appear in the display when the number of laps is shown. Note: If the KPH indicator beside the SPEED display is lit, the distance will be displayed in kilometers; if the indicator is not lit, the distance will be displayed in miles.

SPEED display—This display shows the speed

of the walking belt, in miles per hour or kilome-

ters per hour. If the KPH indicator is lit, the speed

will be displayed in kilometers per hour. Note: To change the unit of measurement, hold down the START/RESET button for about seven seconds.


PULSE display—This display shows the approximate numbers of calories and fat calo-

ries you have burned.

(See BURNING FAT on page 14 for an explanation of fat calories.) Every seven seconds, the display will change from one number to the other. The FAT indicator will light when the number of fat calories is shown. Note: This display also shows your pulse when the pulse sensor is used.

TIME display—This display shows the total time that you have walked since the display was reset.

Note: If the walking belt is stopped and no console buttons are pressed for five minutes, the displays will automatically turn off. To light the displays, press the START/RESET button.

To reset the displays, press the START/ RESET button. The displays will darken for a moment and then light.

Measure your pulse, if desired.

Stand on the foot rails and place your thumb on the pulse sensor as shown. The pulse sensor is pres- sure-activated—fullypress it down.(Do not press

too hard, or the

slightly until the




indicator by the




PULSE display


flashes steadily.


Hold your thumb at this level. After a few seconds, three dashes will appear in the display and your pulse will be shown. Hold your thumb on the sensor for another 15 seconds for the most accurate reading. If the displayed pulse appears to be too high or too low, or if your pulse is not displayed, lift your thumb off the sensor and allow the display to reset. Press down again on the sensor as described above.

Make sure that your thumb is positioned as shown, and that you are applying the proper amount of pressure to the pulse sensor. Try the sensor several times until you become familiar with it. Remember to stand still while measuring your pulse.

6Change the incline of the treadmill, if desired.

To change the incline, hold down the top or bottom of the incline control until the desired incline level is reached. Important: Before folding the treadmill, adjust the incline to the lowest position.
