Life Fitness Platinum Club Series Treadmill User Manual
Following all safety instructions in Section 1.1, move the treadmill to the location in
which it will be used. See Section 3, titled Specifications, for the dimensions of the
product footprint (assembled dimensions.) Allow a distance of eight inches, or 21
centimeters, between the treadmill and other units on either side. Allow a distance
of six feet, or two meters, from the rear of the treadmill to any object or surface.
After placing the unit where it will be used, check its stability. If there is even a
slight rocking motion or the unit is not stable, determine which stabilizing leg is
not resting on the floor. To adjust, loosen the JAM NUT (A), and turn the STABI-
LIZING LEG (B) until the rocking motion ceases, and both stabilizing legs rest
firmly on the floor. Retighten the JAM NUT.
NOTE: It is extremely important that the stabilizing leg be correctly adjusted for
proper operation. An unbalanced unit may cause striding belt misalignment. A
bubble level is recommended to ensure proper leveling.
Located on the front panel at the base of the treadmill, the ON/OFF switch has two positions: "I" (one) for ON and "0"
(zero) for OFF.
After installing and levelling the treadmill, check the belt to ensure that it is tracking properly. First, plug the power cord into an
appropriate outlet. See Electrical Power Requirements at the beginning of this section for details. Then, turn the treadmill ON.
Have one person stand on the platforms on either side of the treadmill frame. Do not stand on the belt at this time. Press the
QUICK START key, and increase the speed to 4.0 miles per hour (MPH), or 6.4 kilometers per hour (KPH), using the SPEED
If the striding belt moves to the right while it is running, have a second person turn the right tension bolt a quarter-turn clock-
wise, and then turn the left tension bolt (A) a quarter-turn counter-clockwise. See the illustration below. This action sets the
striding belt tracking back to center of the roller.
If the striding belt moves to the left, turn the left tension bolt a quarter-turn clockwise and then turn the right tension bolt a quar-
ter-turn counter-clockwise to start the striding belt tracking back to center of roller.
Repeat these adjustments until the striding belt appears centered. Allow the belt to continue running for several minutes to be
sure that the tracking is stabilized.
NOTE: Do not exceed one full turn of the adjusting screws in either direction. If, after one full turn, the belt does not track
properly, contact Customer Support Services. The phone numbers are listed in Section 2.7, titled How to Obtain Product
