Hold the metal frame firmly in the location shown bythe arrow at the right. CAUTION: To decrease the possibility of injury, do not lift the frame by the plastic footrails.

Hello , i hope everythign is o.k
Please do the following:
Firmly grasp the back end of the treadmill. Carefully lift the end of the treadmill deck to the upright position until the foot
lock latch engages and securely locks the deck into position. Make sure the deck is securely latched before letting go. To
unfold, firmly grasp the back end of the treadmill. Gently press down on the foot lock latch with your foot until the lock
latch disengages. Carefully lower the deck to the ground. NOTE: on some models the foot lock latch might be on the right
hand side. NOTE: when folding the Horizon Fitness Treadmill the console assembly will tilt away from you, but will return
when fully folded in the upright position. Please allow two additional feet from wall when folding.
Thank you in advance, sincerely. Blessing.

If you are saying that the deck is in the folded position and will not fold down then pull the pin on the left side of the deck. If the pin is stuck then try and plug in the treadmill insert the safety key and push the down incline button on the console. This should make it so that the pin will un-jam.
Yes! these units need to be maintained depending on usage. for example: 2 people using a treadmill 3 times weekly for a period of 30 min @ a pace of 3 mph would need to apply lubricant on deck every 3 months. Any exercise specialty store or sporting goods that are selling treadmills should have these lubricant kits with instruction on how to apply it.
Now their is a chance that your treadmill may either need the running belt or drive belt (under motor shroud) to have the tension adjusted.
