    wrench in a secure place. The allen wrench is used to adjust the walking belt (see page 16). To protect the
    floor or carpet, place a mat under the treadmill.
    Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with PERFORMANT LUBE
    TM, a high-performance lubricant. IMPOR-
    TANT: 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.
    This product must be earthed. If it should malfunction or break
    down, earthing 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-earthing conductor and an earth-
    ing plug.  
    Two power cords are included. Select the one that will fit your
    outlet. Refer to drawing 1. Plug the indicated end of the power
    cord into the socket on the treadmill. Next, lift the tab on the
    ferrite box and clamp the ferrite box around the power cord.
    The ferrite box should not be allowed to slide along the power
    cord. Fasten the included plastic tie just behind the ferrite box
    and cut off the excess plastic tie. Refer to drawing 2. Plug the
    power cord into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed
    and earthed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
    Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped
    If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a manufac-
    turer-recommended power cord. 
    DANGER:Improper connection of the
    equipment-earthing conductor can result in an in-
    creased risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified
    electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to
    whether the product is properly earthed. Do not mod-
    ify the plug provided with the product—if it will not fit
    the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
    Socket on treadmill
    Ferrite Box
    The chest pulse sensor consists of two components:
    the chest strap and the sensor unit (see the drawing
    below). Insert the tab on one end of the chest strap into
    one end of the sensor unit, as shown in the inset draw-
    ing. Press the end of the sensor unit under the buckle
    on the chest strap. The tab should be flush with the
    front of the sensor unit.
    Next, wrap the
    chest pulse sen-
    sor 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 sen-
    sor 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 so-
    lution, wet both electrode areas. Return the sensor unit
    to a position against your chest. 
    • 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 aredried. If the chest pulse sensor is not dried after 
    each use, it may remain activated longer than nec-
    essary, draining the battery prematurely.   
    •  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 50° C (122° F) or below
    -10° C (14° F). 
    •  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.
    The instructions on the following pages explain
    how the chest pulse sensor is used with the con-
    sole. If the chest pulse sensor does not function
    properly, try the steps below.
    • Make sure that you are wearing the chest pulse sen-
    sor as described at the left. Note: If the chest pulse
    sensor does not function when positioned as de-
    scribed, move it slightly lower or higher.
    • 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, re-wet the electrode areas.
    • As you walk or run on the treadmill, position your-
    self near the centre 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 contrac-
    tions (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 16).
