The power requirements for the Tread/Tread+: 120V, 60Hz, 15A dedicated circuit (North America only).
The Tread should be connected to a dedicated circuit. For an uninterrupted experience, avoid GFCI outlets.
GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter) Outlets
Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets are designed to shut off if too much power is flowing through the ground port.
The Tread/Tread+ uses the ground on the outlet to disperse static electricity generated by machine operation, so if it’s plugged into a GFCI outlet, it’s likely to trip the breaker and shut down.
If this occurs, move the treadmill to a different outlet.
- GFCI outlets are usually found in bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas where interacting with water is common.
- You can often identify GCFI outlets by the red or white reset switch on the face plate, but GFCI breakers often cover nearby outlets, too. Try moving the Tread to a different area.
- Remember that the Tread+ needs its own dedicated circuit.
