I get a small electric shock each time i put my hand on the heart rate monitor on the left of the treadmill. Also happens when i h the inclune buttons on the left. Any suggestions?


Hi Pjd



Shocking problem!



Suspect that the treadmill is generating static electricity.

It is building up as you run... via the rubber mat.

Like the comb through the hair picking up tissue paper bits.

This is basically a Van De Graaff Generator.



Try attaching a wire from the machine chassis (metal) to a metal tap at your sink.

Do you still get a shock?



Not sure where you are and what your electric supply is.

I'm in Australia and our AC plugs have a third pin which is connected to our meter box which is then connected to an outside GROUND ROD.



Perhaps the AC power you are using has no ground or only a 2 pin connection. I which case I would add a three wire plug to the treadmill and the ground pin would connect to the treadmill's metal chassis by a screw or bolt.

Anti static spray may also help



Cheers

Treadmill won't turn on, I get a slight shock when I click the on/off switch.


Dear Sir:

Thank you by you request, I will help you inmediately.

Please do this with very Carefully!!

The shock is a build upof static electricity on your body called Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).Friction between the walking board and belt can generate static electricity.

If experienced, the shock is not harmful ordangerous.

Thank you in advance, sincerely. God bless you.

We had the lift frame crack on our Nordic Track A2550 after very limited use (but 1mo. after warranty). We replaced it in February and after 500 additional miles, the lift frame has cracked again. I...


General Construction
  • The most basic breakdown of a treadmill: a continuously moving belt powered by a motor over a deck that is mounted on a sturdy metal frame. The variables are the size of the belt, the power of the motor, the thickness and composition of the platform as well as the range of options that increase both function and cost of the treadmill. Making the right choices on all these permutations will add to the enjoyment and benefits of using your treadmill.
Frame Composition
  • Frames are generally made from aluminum or steel. Even if there's no difference in the tensile strength in the frames, steel is better because it will produce a heavier treadmill. That increases the machine's stability and lessens the vibrations generated by your exercise, especially running. Frames can be either bolted or welded together. Welded frames are stronger, and there is no risk of a bolt working loose during long periods of operating the treadmill.
Motor Size
  • Most treadmills have two electric motors. One raises and lowers the deck, allowing you to get a versatile workout. The more important motor is the one that moves the exercise belt under your feet. The drive motor turns a flywheel that is connected by a belt---similar to the belts for the engine of your car---to the front roller. The front roller pushes the exercise belt to the back of the treadmill where a free-moving rear roller serves as the exercise belt's turnaround point. Check for the continuous horsepower (CHP) and revolution per minute (RPM) rating on the motor. In fact, lift the motor cover and look for the ratings stamped directly on the motor. A motor that needs high RPMs (more than 5,000) to generate enough torque to drive the exercise belt is a candidate for overheating and is unlikely to last long. If your plan is only to walk---not run---on your treadmill, a 1.5-horsepower motor with less than 5,000 RPMs will suffice. But if you weigh more than 200 lbs. or you plan to run on your treadmill, you will need at least a 2-horsepower motor with an RPM rating of 4,000 or, preferably, less. Choosing one with 2.5 horsepower or more will be even better if you plan to run for long workouts. When in doubt, go up in horsepower. The motor not only moves the belt but it must overcome the resistance you provide with each stride. Smaller motors with high RPM ratings will allow the belt to hesitate slightly. In addition, you likely will be moving more slowly than the speed displayed on the treadmill's console if you are trying to run. Larger motors might be noisier, so look for a motor housing that absorbs some of the machine noise when the treadmill is in operation.
Belt Size
  • Your workout plans also will dictate what size belt and rollers you need. The treadmill's exercise belt will be made of a thin, multiply polyester/fabric mix with a PVC top coat, which produces the best combination for reducing friction and the heat it generates. This will extend the life of the belt and prevent slipping while you're in motion. Although the surface will be smooth against the deck, the PVC coating will be waffled underneath your feet for better traction. Even if you have short legs and you only plan to walk on the treadmill, you should get a belt at least 18 inches wide and 48 inches long. If you plan to run, a 20-inch belt width is better and 22 inches is best, and you shouldn't choose anything less than 54 inches in length. Longer---up to 60 inches---is better, especially for tall runners. The treadmill will run more smoothly with bigger rollers because the rollers will have more grip surface for the belt as it is propelled over the deck. If you plan to run on your treadmill, rollers with 2-inch diameter are the minimum. Some high-end treadmills come with 3.5-inch rollers. Larger rollers also result in less stress on the bearings; a 3.5-inch roller will need to rotate roughly 60 percent less than a 2-inch roller to cover the same distance.
Platform Surface
  • Treadmill decks are made of wood or, more specifically, composite wood substitutes, either particle board or medium density fiberboard (MDF). For runners, an MDF deck at least 1-inch thick is the minimum. A 3/4-inch surface might be OK for walking, but it will be too bouncy for running and will crack more easily. The deck surface will have a laminate coating---preferably on both sides---to allow the exercise belt to slide smoothly. Treadmills commonly have rubber grommets built into the frame to provide cushioning as you exercise. Some treadmills have shock absorption only in the front (landing area) so that you have a firmer push-off for your next stride. With the built-in shock absorption and the smooth surface, a workout on a treadmill is likely to be less stressful on your joints than running outdoors, unless you have access to a perfectly level wood-chip path.
Speed and Incline
  • Most treadmills now come equipped with easy-to-reach controls that allow you to change the belt speed and the incline of the deck while the belt is in motion. The lift motor generally uses a hydraulic lift to raise and lower the treadmill on its front legs. The elevation motor should have a thrust value of at least 400---more for runners---so the deck can be shoved up without any hesitation during exercise. Some treadmills use gears for elevation. That's neither as smooth nor as reliable as hydraulic lifts. The speed of the belt is controlled from the console of the treadmill. As you raise your speed by 1/10 mile per hour, the motor subtly increases the power it is generating to the rollers, much as a hair dryer does less subtly as you click from medium to high. For runners, look for a treadmill that provides a speed of at least 12 miles per hour and allows an elevation of at least 10 percent. That will give you the opportunity to include some speed work and hill training in your workouts.
More Features
  • Some treadmills come equipped with iPod ports, built-in TVs, drink holders, cooling fans, computer-generated workouts and heart-rate monitors. The computer workouts will build in elevation-change programs, and you can punch in the starting speed of your workout and change it manually. Treadmills also allow you to create programs in which you can choose both the speed and elevation changes. Heart-rate monitors calculate your heart beats per minute and can be operated continuously using chest or arm bands or intermittently using a finger clip or by gripping a sensor on the front rail with one hand. But none of these features outweighs the importance of choosing the right belt and motor for your workout.
Safety
  • Make sure the treadmill has a safety release---usually a magnetic key---so you can stop the exercise belt dead in the event of an injury or other emergency. The treadmill is wired so that the key must be in place on or near the console to complete the electronic circuit and allow the machine to operate. Yet the key can easily be yanked free, immediately stopping the drive motor and putting the brakes on the exercise belt.

I purchased a new support for the lift gate. It pops in easily but the lift gate won't close now. What am I doing wrong? I can't see any other way to put it in.


Did you remove the safety clip that stops it from collapsing during installation? Some of these need to be installed compressed and if they extend too far out they will lock up. I would remove the support, compress it at least halfway and then put it back in place with the hatch halfway closed if possible. Then lift the gate and see if that helps in the operation. This assumes you are talking about the spring tension Hydraulic lift bar on the hatch and that you can reach the connecting points with the hatch partially closed.

The passenger rear side shock is knocking about. How do I change the shock if it is broken or has just come loose? Appears to be at the top under trunk


They're easy to change - just compress, remove, compress, install - unless they're coil - over - shock, then the spring needs to be compressed (DANGEROUS) and removed as well.
If it's just loose, try replacing the shock tower mounts.

Installing wheel hub onto drive shaft and strut.


The strut would not extend. Strut are made to go inside of the coil spring, and held in the compressed position.
If the strut is sticking past the coil spring something has gone wrong. You'll need to compress spring and fix it.

Do i need a spring compresser to be able to remove the front shocks


No you do not need to compress the springs to install new shocks. Todays shocks have a nitrogen charge; you'll note your new shocks will have a cable on them. Install the lower portion of the shock, next with the upper end aimed to where you want it to go, cut the cable holding the shock back. The nitrogen within the shock will cause it to slowly extend. If you cut the cable prior to install you'll need to compress the shock and wire in down in to place for install.
Please let me know if this helped,

The coolant reservoir needs to be replaced. Its located under the rear shock absorber. Does the shock absorber need to be detached at both ends. Should it lift right off without being compressed?


the solution behind that is to compress the shock absorber and tie it . once secured you can release the top nuts and disengage the shock absorber from the top . Once your tank is replaced , reinstall the shock and you are away .
