Your TRX5500 uses an external power supply. The power supply must first be plugged into the power
jack on the unit. Next, plug the power supply into the appropriate wall outlet. When not in use, it is
recommended to unplug the power supply from the wall outlet. Do not operate the product if the power supply, its plug, or its cord has been damaged.
TRX5500 Power Supply Requirements: AC 110V 15A
Important Electrical Instructions
- Route the power cord away from any moving part of the treadmill including the elevation mechanism and transport wheels.
- Never remove any cover without first disconnecting AC power. If voltage varies by ten percent (10%) or more, the performance of your treadmill may be affected. Such conditions are not covered under your warranty. If you suspect the voltage is low, contact your local power company or a licensed electrician for proper testing.
- Never expose this treadmill to rain or moisture. This product is NOT designed for use outdoors, near a pool or spa, or in any other high humidity environment. The temperature specification is 40 degrees C, and humidity is 95%, non-condensing (no water drops forming on surfaces). Learn more about where to put your treadmill here.
- Circuit breakers: Avoid AFCI/GFCI circuit breakers if possible. These breakers may trip occasionally during exercise because of the high inrush currents of the treadmill drive electronics and motor. This is an issue that affects all treadmill brands. New laws in your area may require these breakers. If you do have these breakers and outlets in your home, and are experiencing nuisance tripping, you should check if there are any other devices plugged into the same circuit. Some examples of devices that may also cause tripping are fluorescent lights with electronic ballasts, coffee maker, space heater, hair drier. Optimally the treadmill should be the only device plugged into the circuit. Our treadmills have surge suppressors built in to help avoid nuisance tripping. We have tested several AFCI/GFCI breakers and outlets with our products. Brands we have tested are: Eaton (Cutler Hammer Series), Leviton (Smart lock pro) and Schneider Electric (Canadian home series). These breakers do not trip in our testing, when connected to our treadmills, as long as no other devices are plugged into the same circuit.
This product must be grounded. If the treadmill should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current, reducing the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
This product is for use on a nominal 110-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated below. A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter illustrated below may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown below if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet, (shown below) can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear-lug, or the like, extending from the adapter, must be connected to a permanent ground, such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw.
