NordicTrack Elliptical Battery Replacement

If you’re wondering how to change the batteries in older NordicTrack Elliptical trainers you have come to the right place.

NordicTrack are certainly one of the top brands in providing the best elliptical machines, but rather confusingly, some of their machines are mains powered through their power cord, whilst others are battery powered. 

The lack of uniform approach can make it difficult to know exactly how to change the batteries especially in older units. So in this article, I want to cover exactly how to change batteries in the NordicTrack models.

The great news is all of the batteries are located in the console so very easy to follow.

This machine requires four D batteries. You can buy them here:

Replacing the batteries on the is simple, you want to turn the console face down and locate the battery cover which is a half crescent shape on the right hand side of the console. 

Make sure you place the batteries as per the orientation stated on the battery cover. If you fail to do this the unit will not turn on. 

When replacing the battery cover, you will hear a clicking sound when it is secured in place. 

NordicTrack Battery Replacement Warnings

Where possible, NordicTrack recommend using alkaline batteries in all of their models as these will give better performance and last longer.

Ensure batteries are installed in the orientation detailed on the battery cover or in the specific model manual, otherwise the unit will not power up. 

Ensure not to try and change batteries when the machine has recently been exposed to a cold temperature. Failing to do this can cause damage to the display.
