When disassembling the NordicTrack treadmill, the first and the primary step involves removing the console. After that, you can head into opening the side post. But, do you know how to remove the console? If no, then here is a guide for you.
How to remove console in NordicTrack treadmill step by step
The first, basic, and essential step when removing a console is unplugging the treadmill from the power source.
After unplugging it, search for a two-piece wire (console wire) that is found near the left handrail behind the console. After finding it, you can then pull the two pieces apart to disconnect them.
The next step is disconnecting the grounding wire from the treadmill. This is a thin wire that protrudes from a hole in the middles and behind the NordicTrack’s console.
After that, you then take a screwdriver and remove the screws holding clamps at the top unit. This will enable you to remove the console clamp. Ensure that you are using a 9” rod or a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws easily.
The next step involves detaching the console from the treadmill. To do this, you will need to have a Phillips head screwdriver, then locate and remove the six screws that hold the console. In most models, for instance, the Nordic Track C900 treadmill, the six screws are separated into three. Two in the middle, two on the left side, and two on the right side of the console.
After completing all the steps above, you can then lift the console off the support frame.
After removing the console, then you are almost done disassembling your NordicTrack treadmill. One thing you should note is that removing the console covers around 70% of the total disassembling work. The next step in disassembling your treadmill will be removing the upright if it can’t fold into the base of the treadmill.
Remember, there are different models of the NordicTrack treadmill; this means the standing frames will be a bit different. So, what you will do here is that you will start by removing the wires that you disconnected from the console and store them carefully.
Then remove the bolts holding each upright. The bolts are around 8 in total, and when after removing or loosening them, ensure that you store them in a safe place. Find a protective material and use it to wrap up the upright. After doing this, you will remain with the base of the treadmill alone, which you cannot disassemble. Also, find a protective material –which can be blanket or anything, and use it to wrap the entire treadmill base.
Note: When moving the treadmill base or other treadmill parts,don’t place anything on top of them. This is important to avoid any damages on your NordicTrack treadmill. Another thing is to checking the belt tracking and ensuring that the treadmill is level while reassembling it.
