Safety First 

Before plugging in your NordicTrack elliptical, make sure the machine is fully assembled, on a flat surface and properly earthed/grounded. Being grounded reduces the risk of an electric shock because it provides a path of least resistance for an electrical current.

Do not attempt to modify the plug if it does not fit in your outlet at home, if you are unsure whether the product is grounded properly you can contact a qualified electrician. Improper connection of the NordicTrack elliptical power cord can increase your risk of an electric shock.
