Moving a Treadmill:
-To move it in the same room elevate the treadmill to 8%, grab the rear of the treadmill on either side of the rear roller, lift and move it like you would a wheel barrow on the front transport wheels.

-To move it from the room (its too large to fit through average doorways), you must disassemble the treadmill into the console/uprights and the base frame. This will require taking off the motor cover, unplugging the upper wire harness from the lower board and motor pan, removing the upright covers, and removing the eight bolts holding the uprights to the frame. You will need at least two strong people to move it. Consult your owner manual for additional details.  We always recommend that you contact your dealer or service provider to move or prepare your treadmill for a move.

Moving the E7/E9 Ellipticals:
- To move it in the same room we recommend that you remove the front cover and rear step, grab it on the frame member for the rear step lift and move it like a wheelbarrow on the front transport wheels. It is heavy so we do recommend you ask for professional help.
- To move it from the room you will need to disassemble the support handlebars, the upright pedestal , and the console. See your owner’s manual for more details. It is heavy and we do recommend that you contact your dealer or service provider to move or prepare your Elliptical for a move. 

Moving a CX8:
- To move it in the same room just grab the rear T-handle and lift it onto the front transport wheels to move it like a wheelbarrow. Be careful of the front floor support plastic covers as too steep an angle will crack them.
- To move it from the room-If you have enough ceiling height have two strong people - one person grabs the rear T-handle and the other person grab the floor support legs and carry out of the room. If you have tight spaces and need to make the unit smaller please consult the owner’s manual to remove the upright and console.

There are many reasons a treadmill can make noise. Here’s a list of common causes. Please contact your dealer or service provider if you have concerns. You can use our dealer locator or service locator  to find one near you.

- Check underneath treadmill for any objects that might be rubbing against belt and remove if any are found.

- Has the belt been broken-in correctly? On new treadmills or if a treadbelt has been replaced the treadbelt/deck  needs to be broken-in so the lubricant is evenly distributed. To do this start at the back of the treadbelt and walk at a slow speed from side to side and up and down the entire walking surface for 20-30 minutes.  

- Is the treadbelt tracked correctly? If belt is off to one side it may be rubbing on the belt guides and making noise.

- Is the treadbelt overtightened? This is the most common cause of groaning type noises. Loosen the treadbelt slightly and see if noise goes away.  If noise goes away then tighten belt only until there is no slippage when walking. If the noise continues after this please contact your dealer or service provider.

- Does noise occur at all speeds or only at certain speeds? Most noises are more noticeable at low speeds. If noise disappears at walking speed its probably normal.

- On older machines and machines with high mileage the treadbelt and deck may be worn excessively and making noise. Please contact your dealer or service provider.

- Does noise occur when seam passes over roller? The seam is slightly higher than the rest of the belt and some noise is normal.

- If noise occurs when walking check that you are not walking too far to the rear of the treadmill causing your foot to touch on or close to the rear roller. This usually sounds like a “chirp” and is solved by walking more to the front of the treadmill.

- If you hear a grinding, rumbling, clunking or squealing noise please contact your dealer or service provider.

E7/E9 Ellipticals
- Check that there is no foreign object that is making contact with any moving parts.

- If the noise is coming from the rollers lift the pedal arm off the roller and clean any debris on the roller or the pedal arm.

- If the noise is coming from the stride arm adjustment area make sure that T-handle and adjustment knob are tight.

For all other issues, contact your dealer or service provider

The Warranty card that came with your product will detail the warranty coverage your equipment came with. For our latest warranty information go to: Warranties All warranty questions will require the serial number and your owner information. This will insure you that you are receiving the correct parts and warranty coverage.

The Treadbelt is tracked by means of two 9/16” adjustment bolts located at the rear of the treadmill. We recommend using a 9/16” socket wrench to make the adjustments. By tightening the side the belt is closest to and loosening the opposite side by the same amount, you change the alignment of the rear roller without changing overall tension. Adjustments should be made with the treadmill running, and should be made in 1/4-turn increments. Allow at least 30 seconds for treadbelt to stabilize between each adjustment. Perform the adjustments at slower speeds (2-3 mph) until you are comfortable making adjustments. Faster speeds will cause the adjustments to take effect quicker (5-6 mph).

Example: Treadbelt tracks to the right:
a. Turn treadmill on, and bring speed up to 4.0 mph.
b. Using a 9/16" wrench, tighten the right-hand adjustment bolt 1/4" turn.
c. Loosen the left-hand adjustment bolt 1/4" turn.
d. Let Treadbelt stabilize (rotate for 30 seconds) and readjust if necessary.
For more information on tracking or tensioning your treadmill’s belts ,please consult your owner’s manual. Owner’s manuals can also be found online.
*Note: These adjustment are part of the treadmill maintenance and not covered under warranty.
