Chapter 5: Care & Maintenance
Care & Maintenance
It is important to perform the minor maintenance tasks described in this section. Failure to maintain the
elliptical as described here could void the TRUE Fitness Warranty. To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
always unplug the unit from its power source before cleaning or performing any maintenance tasks.
Inspection:
Inspect the elliptical daily. Look and listen for loose fasteners, unusual noises, worn or frayed power cords,
and any other indications that the equipment may be in need of service. If you notice any of these, obtain
service.
IMPORTANT: If you determine that the elliptical needs service, make sure that the elliptical cannot be used
inadvertently. Turn the unit Off, and then unplug the power cord from its power source. Make sure other
users know that the elliptical needs service.
Cleaning the Equipment:
TRUE recommends the elliptical be cleaned before and after each workout. Use mild soap and water to
dampen a soft cloth and wipe all exposed surfaces. This helps remove any dust or dirt.
Clean the display console regularly with mild soap and water or a mild household cleaner. DO NOT use
paper towels, ammonia or acid based cleaners. *
CAUTION: Do not use any acidic cleaners. Doing so will weaken the paint or powder coatings and may
void the TRUE Fitness Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids on any part of the elliptical. Allow the
elliptical to dry completely before using. Frequently vacuum the floor underneath the unit to prevent the
accumulation of dust and dirt, which can affect the smooth operation of the unit.
*When cleaning the exterior of the unit, a non-abrasive cleaner and soft cotton cloth are strongly
recommended. At no time should cleaner be applied directly to any part of the equipment; use nonabrasive cleaner of soft cloth and then wipe the unit.
Storing the Chest Strap:
Store the chest strap in a place where it remains free of dust and dirt such as, in a closet or drawer. Be sure
to protect the chest strap from extremes in temperature. Do not store it in a place that may be exposed to
temperatures below 32° F (0° C). To clean the chest strap, use a sponge or soft cloth dampened in mild soap
and water. Dry the surface thoroughly with a clean towel.
Long Term Storage:
When the elliptical is not in use for any length of time, turn it off. Make sure that the power cord is
unplugged from the power source and is positioned so that it will not become damaged or interfere with
people or other equipment.

Chapter 6: Troubleshooting
Basic Elliptical Troubleshooting Guide
The following are common questions that are asked. For all other inquiries we would ask that you call your
local dealer/service provider in your area for support.
Q. What does it mean when my panel displays no lights?
A. Check the following:
• Verify you are receiving power to your outlet buy using an alternative device.
• It could mean that your unit is not plugged in.
• You will need to check the toggle switch on the front base of the unit to make sure it is in the ON position.
• You can check to see if your circuit breaker switch on your unit has been tripped. If so, you can reset it
and the lights should reappear on your display. If it will not reset, you will need to call your local dealer or
service provider to set up a service call.
Q. The upper display shows an error code or has odd characters.
A. If your display has any error messages on it TRUE Fitness recommends that you contact your local
dealer or service provider to arrange a service call. The error codes are there for your protection and we do
not recommend that you continue using the unit without consulting a professional.
Q. Is there any maintenance that I need to do to my elliptical?
A. TRUE Fitness encourages our customers to set themselves up with a preventative maintenance contract.
These can be provided through your dealer or local service provider.
Q. How do I arrange for a service or preventative maintenance appointment?
A. TRUE Fitness recommends that you gather the serial number, model number, and a brief description
of the reason for the request before contacting anyone. Once that information has been gathered you may
contact your selling dealer or local service company to set an appointment. (If you are not familiar with who
is in your area, you may visit our website at www.truefitness.com and use our dealer locator to obtain the
contact information for the closest dealer in your area.)
If you would like you may also contact TRUE Fitness’ customer support team by calling 800.883.8783 or
