how to open the box of the treadmill


You have to lift up the back of the treadmill a little to access 2 phillips head screws that keep the motor cover on, (note that you will also have to unscrew a few phillips head screws on the bottom front of the cover as well in order to remove it completely). Before you begin lifting the back of the treadmill platform off the ground to access the screws underneath make sure the treadmill is on a zero incline setting and it helps to find a sturdy object you can rest the tail end off the treadmill on about 1 to 2 feet above the ground giving you enough room to access the screws underneath. Another option is to lift the treadmill platform all the way up and lock it in an upright position using the locking mechanism and lock handle that is located underneath the machine. I find this route to be unnecessary and cumbersome for what you want to do. Once you lift the treadmill up you will see the 2 small Phillips head screws near the front of the treadmill running platform that you need to unscrew in order to take off the motor cover. You also need to unscrew a couple small screws under the machine located on each side of the wood running board. These screw fasten the top inner plastic side covers onto the top of the running platform which needs to be taken off in order to access the back rollers. Make sure you collect the screws in a way that you will remember where they go later when you reassemble as this is your first time taking them out and you might forget later. Now with the bottom screws out, lower the back of the treadmill down level on the ground and pull off the motor cover, and the Left and Right INNER plastic running platform covers. With the inner covers removed you will find yet another small set of screws fasting the main plastic side covers to the running board which require an allen wrench to unscrew. Use the small wrench that came with the machine if you have it handy. With those off you can pull the main Left and Right plastic running board covers off, just make sure to carefully unsnap them from their snap points near the bottom rear of the machine. With all the covers removed you can now access the bolts that hold your treadmill rollers in place and the drive belt which you will have to slip on and off the motors drive pulley and the front roller using a pull and turn technique. The back rollers are simple and can be removed by unscrewing the tension bolts at the back of the treadmill and pulling the roller through and out of the belt. With drive belt set aside and all roller bolts removed you can take out the front roller in the same way you removed the back roller. Replace the treadmill belt and reassemble the machines components in the reverse fashion you disassembled them using these instructions. Doing this yourself will save you hundreds of dollars service man visits in the future.

front cover change


hi there
this is the procdure...

First remove the back cover, the battery and the SIM card.
Now remove the top part of the back cover (the part above the camera). Do this by inserting a small flat bladed screwdriver between the white and black parts of the phone, and lever the screwdriver up like a small crowbar on either side of the lens. The black cover should slide up and off the phone.
Looking at the top of the phone, remove the small on/off button and put it in safe place. Also remember to remove the little mirror or rubber grommit from beside the camera lens and put that in the same safe place as the on/off button. Losing these little bits will cause you no end of pain as they are not available as spare parts.

The next bit to remove is a small green plastic bit of circuit board. It's clipped in and sprung against some data pins. Again using the flat bladed screwdriver, pop it off in the direction of the top of the phone.

The whole rear of the phone should now be exposed. Using a T6 torx screwdriver, unscrew the four small screws indicated. Put these screws in that safe place.
Once the screws are out, hold the phone like so, and squeeze gently on the sides and lower edge of the phone case, the pressure should be enough to create a small gap between the fascia and the sides, using a fingernail or thin plastic (like a credit card) make the gap bigger until the fascia pops off. Repeat on the opposite side of the phone if required.

The fascia should now lift off completely, exposing the front of the phone.

Push your replacement fascia on until it clicks into place, and reassemble the phone. if all has gone well, you should have a T310 that looks as nice as the one shown above.

All the Best.
