From the owners manual:

HOW TO LOWER THE TREADMILL FOR USE

1. Hold the upper end of the treadmill with your right hand.
Pull the latch knob to the left and hold it. It may be necessary
to push the frame forward as you pull the knob to
the left. Pivot the frame downward and release the latch
knob.

2. Hold the metal frame firmly with both hands and lower
it to the floor. CAUTION: Do not grip only the plastic
foot rails or drop the frame to the floor. Bend your legs
and keep your back straight.

SOURCE: How do I unfold my Reebok 8700 i fit? I folded it

Hello there, If you stand behind the machine you should see the safety latch mechanism (round knob on the long section in the middle when the unit is raised) You will need to push up slightly on the walking belt section while pulling out the knob located on the safety rod. While pulling out the knob lower the unit about 3 inches and then release the knob. If you release the knob too soon it will catch back in the hole again. This should release the unit.
Good Luck! Tim

How to fold my afg 5.0 treadmill for storagae


Dear Sir: Hello , i hope everythign is o.k
Please do the following:

FOLDING 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 need additional help, please contact me.

How do you take the treadmill down from the locked upright position?


Here is a link to the User's Manual download page for your model:

http://www.iconservice.com/CustomerService/manualsProductManuals.do?model=PFTL99910&modelName=PROFORM+POWER+995+TREADMILL&version=0&company=11&language=

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated. Then just click on the English User's Manual download link on that page.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents. You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there.

See page 24 of the User's Manual for detailed instructions and illustrations on how to fold the unit for storage or unfold it for use.

Basically, to lower the treadmill for use, just hold the upper end of the treadmill frame with your right hand. Then pull the LATCH KNOB to the LEFT. If necessary, push the frame forward slightly. Then pivot the frame downward a few inches, then release the latch knob. Then hold the metal frame firmly with both hands and lower it to the floor.

Good luck.

My Proform 785 will not unfold even after I have pulled the latch. Is there something else I need to do to unfold it?


You may have damaged the treadmill when folding it up. If the incline was not lowered to its minimum position, the frame can be damaged.
To lower the treadmill, all you do is release the latch and lower the deck of the treadmill to the floor.
There are many Proform machines known as "785" including a number of elliptical trainers. An actual model number would make diagnosis much easier...

How i unfold it?


There is allot of weight on the "Storage Latch". You may need to push forward on the treadmill a bit, pull the black knob, then slowly let the machine unfold. Taking the weight off the "Storage Latch" will make it easier to release the latch..

Hello I have a Nordic Track A2050 treadmill and it has worked flawlessly till today, The unit was open (unfolded) and I wanted to close it because I nearly killed myself tripping over it, so I turned it on...


Hello there, The machine is attempting to do an incline calibration. Keep the unit lowered as you have it, reinstall the safety key, allow the unit to go all the way to the top and then all the way to the bottom. The machine will stop when at the bottom and the screen will go back to normal. The machine will not overtravel the incline motor and damage it. Just let the calibration finish the procedure and you will be fine.
Good Luck! Tim
FYI this will happen anytime the safety key is removed while the incline is moving on nordictrack brand machines.
