HOW TO USE THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR
HOW TO PUT ON THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR
• 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.
The chest pulse sensor consists of two components—
the chest strap and the sensor unit.
• 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).
Chest Strap
Tabs
• 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.
Buckle
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.
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.
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 necessary. 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.
• 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.
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.
• 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.
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 CR2032 battery may need to be replaced (see
page 31).

TREADMILL OPERATION
THE PRE-LUBRICATED WALKING BELT
tric 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.
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.

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 NordicTrack 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.

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.

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

setting.
Select a heart rate program.
To select a heart rate
program, press the
Program Select button
repeatedly until one of
the two heart rate program indicators lights.
5
Press the Start button to start the program.
A moment after the button is pressed, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the first speed and
incline settings of the program. Hold the handrails
and begin walking.
The two profiles on the right side of the console
show how the target heart rate will change during
the programs. During heart rate program 1, your
heart rate will reach approximately 85% of your
estimated maximum heart rate; during heart rate
program 2, your heart rate will reach approximately 90% of your estimated maximum heart
rate. Note: Your maximum heart rate is estimated
by subtracting your age from 220. For example, if
you are 30 years old, your estimated maximum
heart rate is 190 beats per minute (220 – 30 =
190).
Each heart rate program is divided into 30 oneminute segments. One target heart rate is programmed for each segment.
During each segment, the console will regularly
compare your heart rate to the current target heart
rate. If your heart rate is too far below or above
the target heart rate, the speed of the treadmill will
19
automatically increase or decrease to bring your
heart rate closer to the target heart rate. If the
speed reaches the maximum speed setting of the
program (see step 4 on page 19) and your heart
rate is still too far below the current target heart
rate, the incline of the treadmill will also increase
to bring your heart rate closer to the target heart
rate.
If your pulse is not detected during the program,
the letters “PLS” will flash in the Pulse/Pace display, and the speed and incline of the treadmill
may automatically decrease until your pulse is detected. If this occurs, see CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLESHOOTING on page 9.
To stop the program temporarily, press the Stop
button. The Time display will begin to flash. To
restart the program, press the Start button or the
Speed increase button. After a moment, the walking belt will begin to move at 1 mph. When the
the console compares your heart rate to the current target heart rate, the speed and/or incline of
the treadmill may then automatically change.
During the last three seconds of each segment, a
series of tones will sound and the Speed display
and the Incline display will flash.
The program will continue until no time remains.
The walking belt will then slow to a stop.
If the speed or incline setting is too high or too low
at any time during the program, you can adjust the
setting with the Speed or Incline buttons. However,
each time the console compares your heart rate to
the current target heart rate, the speed and/or incline of the treadmill may automatically change to
bring your heart rate closer to the target heart
rate.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Most treadmill problems can be solved by following the instructions in this section. Find any symptoms
that apply, and follow the steps listed. If further assistance is needed, please see 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. Make sure that the key is inserted into the console.
c. Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the 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.

PROBLEM: The power turns off during use
SOLUTION: a. Check the reset/off circuit breaker (see 1. c. 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 and then reinsert it.
PROBLEM: The displays of the console do not function properly
SOLUTION: a. Remove the key from the console and UNPLUG THE
POWER CORD. Next, remove the screws from the hood
(not shown) and carefully remove the hood. Locate the
Reed Switch (42) and the Magnet (24) on the left side of
the Pulley (40). 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, use a slotted screwdriver to move the Reed Switch
slightly. Then, reattach the hood, making sure that the
Screws are inserted into the same holes from which they
were removed. Run the treadmill for a few minutes to check
for a correct speed reading.

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 be
permanently damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the included 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 3 to 4 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.

c. If the walking belt still slows when walked on, please 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
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 side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be
careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug
in the power cord, insert the key, and walk on the
treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking
belt is properly tightened.

PROBLEM: The chest pulse sensor does not function properly
SOLUTION: a. If the chest pulse sensor does not function properly, see CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLESHOOTING on page 9.
b. If the chest pulse sensor still does not function properly, the battery
should be changed. To replace the battery, locate the battery cover
on the back of the sensor unit. Insert a coin into the slot in the cover
and turn the cover counterclockwise to the “open” position. Remove
the cover.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES
is to burn fat, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in
your training zone.
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.
For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed or incline
of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the middle
number in your training zone.
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 aid in determining heart
rate trends in general.
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 or incline of the treadmill until your
heart rate is near the highest number in your training
zone.
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
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
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.
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.
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 highest number is the
recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.
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 post-exercise 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.
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
