A Step by Step Guide on How to Disassemble a Proform 995 Treadmill
- Disassembly requires:
- Hex Key
- Phillips Screwdriver
- Adjustable Wrench
Step 1. Remove the Rear Feet From the Frame
First lift the treadmill to the upright / folded position. Then using a screwdriver remove the four screws(2), two on each side, and remove the two Rear Feet (57) from the frame (56)
Step 2. Remove Folding Storage Latch
* You may want to have someone help hold the treadmill up for this next step.
Lift the treadmill deck so that it is in the upright / folded position. From here you are going to remove the Storage Latch Bar (53) by removing the nut and bolt that connect the top (12, 6) and bottom (12, 3) of the treadmill’s frame.
Step 3. Remove the Left and Right Console Treys
To remove the Left and Right Console Treys (108,107), you will need to remove four screws (1) from the backside of the main control console. Then lift the treys out.
Step 4. Remove Left and RIght Upright Covers
Next we will remove the left and right upright covers that attach to the bottom of the Console Assembly. To do this just remove the three screws (1) holding both the left (79) and right (80) Upright Covers in place to the main uprights (89,90).
Step 5. Remove Left and Right Handrail Covers
On each handrail there is a cover connecting to the Console Assembly. You can remove both of these by removing one screw (1) from each side and sliding off the left (85) and right (86) handrail covers.
Step 6. Removing Left and right Base Covers
The Left (82) and Right (83) base covers snap into place so you want to be careful when taking them off. To get them off you will need to pull out and then lift from the bottom of the base covers. So “un snap” them from the base.
Step 7. Remove Console Assembly from Support Rails
* Be careful when removing the console assembly. There is a cable connected to it that runs down the left frame rail. So when you remove the console assembly, only pull it an inch or two off of the rails so you can access the cable connection.
To remove the Console Assembly, you will need to remove 10 total screws from the backside of the console. This includes six half inch screws (1) and four bolts (36) along with the accompanying washers (35).
Step 8. Disconnect Console Wire
Be careful when removing the console assembly not to pull too far and break the console wire. Only pull it off the rails a few inches exposing the console wire connection. From here disconnect the cable and place the Console Assembly someplace safe. Wrapping it in a blanket for protection is a good idea.
Step 9. Remove Crossbar
To remove the crossbar, unscrew the two flat head screws (112) and the screws (9) and washers (35) connecting the crossbar to the two handrails.
Step 10. Remove Left and RIght Handrail
* The console wire runs through the left hand rail, so be careful when removing it.
The remove the handrails, just remove the four bolts (5) and washers (11). Two on each side. Then lift the handrails up and out of the upright supports. Remember the console wire runs through the left hand rail. Carefully remove the wire from the left handrail.
Step 10. Slide Off the Left and Right Base Covers.
Simply slide off the left and right base covers. And put them somewhere so they won’t get broken.
Step 11. Remove Left and RIght Upright Supports
* Remember the Console Wire runs down the left upright, so be careful when removing it not to pull the wire.
Both the left and right uprights are held in place by four bolts (eight total). Two bolts (7) on top and two bolts (8) and washers (13) on the sides.
Step 12. Running Console Wire Through the Left Upright
* Tip: Tie a string or cord to the top console wire cable, long enough to run the entire length of the left upright. So that when you run the cable through the upright, you can attach one end of the string to the top and one to the bottom. So that when reconnecting, you can tie the string to the Console Cable and pull it through the upright.
To remove the Console Wire, carefully run it through the left upright.
Step 13. Disconnect the Ground Wire and Run Through Base
First unscrew the base wire (10) from the base (110). Then run the console cable through the hole in the frame for safe moving.
Step 14. (Optional) Remove Wheels
To remove the wheels, remove the two screws (2) holding each wheel in place to the frame (94).
