If you want to know how to turn your Sole Elliptical off, you need to know how to turn it on in the first place. In a nutshell, you only have to plug the machine into an outlet, press its power switch, and stand on it.
The reason for that is that many ellipticals are movement-powered, so standing on them and stopping to move is what makes the whole machine start. You can use the machine’s console to adjust different things, such as the elliptical’s speed and time trackers.
How to Turn Off Sole E25 and E35 Elliptical
If you want to turn off your sole elliptical, the only thing you need to do is to gently stop to move and get off it.
But the display mode will not turn off automatically, to exit the display mode, for normal operation, press and hold the STOP, ENTER and DISPLAY keys for five seconds; the display will show: DISPLAY MODE – ON. Use the speed UP key to change the setting to OFF then press ENTER.
Unplugging it directly before properly turning the machine off is dangerous for the machine itself, and it can cause the electrical components to wear prematurely.
Nonetheless, you can plug your Sole Elliptical into a power strip and simply turn off the power strip to turn the machine off without the risk of unplugging it.
As we mentioned before, your machine should turn itself off minutes after you get off it, and if it doesn’t, it may be due to a malfunction. Check if something’s wrong with your machine or contact Soles customer service.
Do make sure to note down your version number beforehand so that tech support can assist.
Why Won’t My Sole Elliptical Turn Off?

However, you can always ask the manufacturer or a gym equipment engineer to check your machine to see if anything else happens with it.
Now you know how to safely turn off your Sole elliptical and what to do if it doesn’t turn off. All you need to do is either turn off the power switch if it has one, if not just step off the machine and it will turn off for you!
