We have one but what do I do with it
Exercise Equipment Technician: treadmilltech, Technician replied 2 months ago
Set it to DC voltage, insert the black lead into the end of the power supply and touch the red lead to the outside chrome part. The power supply should be plugged in. If there is a reading it should be between 6-12 vdc. If there is no reading the power supply is bad. Let me know the result.

model 202
Exercise Equipment Technician: treadmilltech, Technician replied 2 months ago
Ok the power supply is the direct power source to the console therefore if there is not a broken wire in between, the console is bad. Unfortunately the console is no longer available. Sorry for the bad news.
