    Treadmill Breakdown

    First thing you want to do is fold the treadmill up. Then when folded down, unscrew the screws on the very back. Then flip the treadmill down again and take off the panel. once that panel is off start unscrewing and unplugging everything. Then to get the motor out I used 2 wrenches. Next the control panel

    Undo these 4 bolts to remove the panel. once those are removed, unscrew the boards and get the wire. There will also be 4 of these, pry off the stainless steel.

    Next is the gearbox at the time I didn't know what this was but soon decided to throw it in as breakage because of all the grease. I did grab the motor though. I cut the windings out of it with a dremel. Next is the heat sink like thing. Not much to it, unscrew the board and unplug the wires.

    In the end I had a little silver Mylar, 4 mid grade boards, a chunk of extruded, a chunk of cast wire, #2 copper motors, 4 pieces of stainless, breakage ( gearbox), and if course all the steel.

    I used these tools flat and Philips screwdrivers, a magnetic parts dish, wire cutters, 2 9/16 wrenches, a hammer, impact gun, and a dremel AS A WARNING, BE CAREFUL LOADING THE MAIN STEEL PART, MY FINGER GOT STUCK IN BETWEEN IT SO BE CAREFUL!
