Recently I’ve received a few emails in regards to how to disassemble the Sole F63 treadmill for moving. One of the most popular treadmills on the market. The F63 is an incredibly well built machine (with a great warranty to match) at a friendly price point. And because the treadmill lasts as long as it does, many people find themselves needing to move the treadmill at some point. But without any specific disassembly instructions, a lot of people are left to tackle it alone. So to better help everyone, I’ve revered the official assembly instructions, providing images with numbered corresponding parts to make it easier.

How to Disassemble the Sole F63 Treadmill for Moving
Tools You Will Need
You will need a Phillips Head Screwdriver and an M6 Allen Wrench.
Step 1: Remove the Tablet Holder
Use the Combination M5 Allen Wrench & Phillips Head Screw Drive (131) to remove four of Sheet Metal Screw (175) from the Console Assembly (52). Then gently remove the Tablet Holder.
Step 2: Remove Console Mast Cover (Frame Base Caps) from the Frame Base
Remove the Console Mast Cover (62 & 63) from the Frame Base by removing two tapping screws (120) and two Phillips head screws (140) from the cover. These will remain on and lose until later.
Step 3: Removing Support Tube
Start by removing the treadmills safety key (75). First lift the Beverage Holder (158) on top of the Support tube (26). Then loosen and remove the four Button Head Socket Bolts (159). Then remove the Support Tube (26) from the two upright tube (4 & 5) supports.
Step 4: Remove left & right Handlebar Covers
Use the Combination M5 Allen Wrench & Phillips Head Screw Driver (131) to remove the Sheet Metal Screws (175) holding the Left (64) and Right (65) Handlebar Covers to the top of the Upright Tubes (4 & 5). Then lower them, we’ll remove these later.
Step 5.1: Removing Console Assembly Assembly from Base
*Important* Once you remove the Console Assembly you want to be careful not to tear the connected wires. There will not be a lot of extra length on the wires once you lift the console. So having someone to hold the console or something to place it on close to the base is recommended.
Use the M6 L Allen Wrench (132) to remove four Button Head Socket Bolts (139) and four Split Washers (113) from the Upright Tubes (4 & 5). Then gently lift/remove the Console Assembly (52) from the Upright Tuber (4 & 5).
Step 5.2: Disconnect Cables
Disconnect the Speed Adjustment Switch Cable (54) from the Speed Cable, Upper (37). Then disconnect the Incline Adjustment Switch Cable (55) from the Incline Cable, Upper (38). Lastly disconnect the Computer Cable, Middle (49) and Computer Cable, Upper (48).
Step 6.1: Remove Upright Tubes from Frame Base
*Important* When removing the Upright Tubes be careful of cables with very little extra length. These will be disconnected in the next step.
Use the Combination M5 Allen Wrench & Phillips Head Screw Driver (131) to remove eight Button Head Socket Bolts (130) that connect the Upright Tubes (4 & 5) onto the Frame Base (2) and then lift the tubes.
Step 6.2: Disconnect Cables and Remove Caps
Disconnect the Lower Computer Cable (50) to the Middle Computer Cable (49) located on the right side of the unit. Then remove the Frame Base Caps (62L & 63R) and the lower handlebar covers (64 & 65). Lastly remove the two Speed Nut Clips (128) on the left and right sides of the Frame Base.
That’s it! Will now be left with the base motor and tread unit. Which should be much easier to transport.
