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. Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with highperformance 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 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. 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. 1 Grounded Outlet Box Surge Suppressor Grounding Pin 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 PROFORM dealer or call the toll-free telephone number on the front cover of this manual and order part number 146148, or see your local electronics store. Grounding Pin Grounded Outlet Grounding Plug 2 Grounded Outlet Box Adapter 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, accelerate or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury. Surge Suppressor Lug Metal Screw 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 electrician to determine if the outlet box cover is grounded before using an adapter. 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 elec- 9 CONSOLE DIAGRAM Key Clip FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE using the treadmill.

Find the symptom that applies, and follow the steps listed. If further assistance is needed, please call the toll-free telephone number on the front cover of this manual. PROBLEM: The power does not turn on SOLUTION: a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor is plugged into a properly grounded outlet (see page 9). Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 9. Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped outlets. b. After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is inserted into the console. c. Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord. If the switch protrudes as shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset the circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then press the switch back in. c Tripped Reset PROBLEM: The power turns off during use SOLUTION: a. Check the circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord (see the drawing above). If the circuit breaker has tripped, wait for five minutes and then press the switch back in. b. Make sure that the power cord is plugged in. If the power cord is plugged in, unplug it, wait for five minutes, and then plug it back in. c. Remove the key from the console. Reinsert the key into the console. d. If the treadmill still will not run, see the front cover of this manual. PROBLEM: The displays of the console do not function properly SOLUTION: a. Remove the key from the console and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Remove the Screws (2) from the Hood (1), and carefully pivot the Hood off. a 2 1 Locate the Reed Switch (10) and the Magnet (18) on the left side of the Pulley (17). Turn the Pulley until the Magnet is aligned with the Reed Switch. Make sure that the gap between the Magnet and the Reed Switch is about 1/8”. If necessary, loosen the Screw (2), move the Reed Switch slightly, and then retighten the Screw. Reattach the Hood (not shown), and run the treadmill for a few minutes to check for a correct speed reading. 17 1/8” 58 17 10 18 Top View PROBLEM: The walking belt slows when walked on SOLUTION: a. Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 9. b. If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. b 2”–3” Rear Roller Bolts c. If the walking belt still slows when walked on, see the front cover of this manual. PROBLEM: The walking belt is off-center or slips when walked on SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt is off-center, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, use the allen wrench to turn the left rear roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn; if the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the left bolt counterclockwise 1/2 of a turn. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centered. b. If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. 18 a b CONDITIONING GUIDELINES WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for individuals over the age of 35 or individuals with preexisting health problems. 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. The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. For more detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician. EXERCISE INTENSITY Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your cardiovascular system, the key to achieving the desired results is to exercise with the proper intensity. The proper intensity level can be found by using your heart rate as a guide. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning and aerobic exercise. To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age near the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers above your age. The three numbers define your “training zone.” The lower two numbers are recommended heart rates for fat burning; the higher number is the recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise. Fat Burning To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively low intensity level for a sustained period of time. During the first few minutes of exercise, your body uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after the first few minutes does your body begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal is to burn fat, adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in your training zone. For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the middle number in your training zone. Aerobic Exercise If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be “aerobic.” Aerobic exercise is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for prolonged periods of time. This increases the demand on the heart to pump blood to the muscles, and on the lungs to oxygenate the blood. For aerobic exercise, adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the highest number in your training zone. WORKOUT GUIDELINES Each workout should include the following three parts: A Warm-up—Start each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate and circulation in preparation for exercise. Training Zone Exercise—After warming up, increase the intensity of your exercise until your pulse is in your training zone for 20 to 60 minutes. (During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your pulse in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.) Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise—never hold your breath. A Cool-down—Finish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching to cool down. This will increase the flexibility of your muscles and will help prevent postexercise problems. EXERCISE FREQUENCY To maintain or improve your condition, complete three workouts each week, with at least one day of rest between workouts. After a few months, you may complete up to five workouts each week if desired. The key to success is to make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your everyday life. 19 PART LIST—Model No. PFTL41105.0 Key No. Qty. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 1 16 1 1 2 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 5 14 15 2 2 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 4 1 1 1 2 1 3 1 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 1 2 9 1 1 1 1 1 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 2 1 1 1 1 2 2 6 1 1 1 Description Hood 3/4” Screw Motor Belt Motor Tension Bolt Fan Screw Motor Star Washer Flywheel Drive Motor Foot Rail Cover Reed Switch Latch Warning Decal Frame Spacer Frame Pivot Nut/Motor Nut Frame Pivot Bolt Walking Platform Bolt, Rear Handrail Endcap Front Roller/Pulley Magnet Motor Pivot Bolt Motor Bracket Bolt Console Fan Hood Clip Front Roller Adjustment Bolt Motor Mount Bracket Rear Roller Bracket Ground Screw Latch Assembly Motor Tension Nut Latch Housing Catch Rear Endcap Pad, Left Wheel Nut Static Decal Left Grip Plate Electronics Bracket Right Grip Plate Pulse Plate Rear Roller Washer 1” Tek Screw Ground Wire 5/32” Allen Wrench Wire Harness Key No. Qty. 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 1 2 1 4 1 10 2 1 1 1 1 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 2 2 1 4 21 1 1 2 2 2 2 4 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 2 2 5 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 4 4 1 1 1 1 2 4 4 2 1 Description Console Rear Roller Plate Rear Roller Extension Leg Nut Console Base 1/2” Screw Wire Clamp Key/Clip Incline Motor Incline Bracket Incline Motor Bolt, Lower Incline Pivot Bolt Incline Pivot Nut Motor Controller Wire Round Base Pad 3/4” Tek Screw Controller Lift Frame Extension Leg Pad Warning Decal Extension Leg Wheel Bolt Extension Leg Endcap Wheel 1/4” Nut 8” Cable Tie Upright Grommet Handrail Walking Belt Transformer Left Foot Rail Silver Ground Screw U-nut Belly Pan Screw Right Foot Rail Power Cord Walking Platform Belly Pan Belt Guide Belt Guide Screw Isolator Fastener Isolator Cushion Frame R0706A Key No. Qty. 87 88 89 90 91 92 3 1 2 2 1 2 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 8 1 4 2 1 2 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 108 109 3 2 110 111 112 113 1 1 6 2 114 115 4 2 # # # # # # # # 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Description Releasable Tie Warning Decal Cable Tie Clamp Console Bolt Sensor Clip Rear Roller Adjustable Bolt Leg/Handrail Bolt Allen Wrench Handrail Star Washer 1/4” Star Washer Walking Platform Roller Bracket Screw Optic Disk Optic Disk Sensor Small Bolt Small Star Washer Small Nut Pulse Plate Filter Wire Incline Wire Walking Platform Nut, Front Power Inlet Screw Walking Platform Bolt, Front Front Roller Washer Pulse Bar Frame Rear Endcap Screw Rear Roller Star Washer Ground Screw Walking Platform Washer 6” Black Wire, 2 Ring 4” Black Wire, 2F 4” Black Wire, M/F 6” Green Wire, F/R 4” White Wire, M/F 4” Blue Wire, 2F 4 ” Red Wire, M/F User’s Manual #These parts are not illustrated 92 41 38 44 113 25 67 58 98 112 15 74 11 58 58 94 31 115 1 92 30 38 84 112 113 88 44 45 72 85 58 58 22 98 78 58 83 82 9 58 22 67 40 114 86 107 25 58 115 15 22 12 97 58 87 9 10 7 53 109 14 3 89 58 13 8 28 49 19 58 17 4 83 85 84 13 4 58 28 68 20 20 18 91 24 84 58 58 6 110 81 82 14 58 2 65 23 107 109 13 26 73 63 12 93 2 114 58 61 62 114 60 2 27 108 46 58 33 39 29 2 26 69 59 63 57 54 13 54 58 62 39 99 100 51 55 46 102 101 106 103 93 13 56 96 16 R0706A 95 93 71 61 65 16 52 53 79 57 105 58 76 EXPLODED DRAWING—Model No. PFTL41105.0 42 90 16 37 76 39 57 39 42 55 70 43 2 47 32 66 54 95 93 71 2 111 2 64 2 2 16 96 37 2 50 90 2 21 5 2 2 2 5 2 2 75 88 ORDERING REPLACEMENT PARTS To order replacement parts, see the front cover of this manual.
