- Most Horizon, North American, treadmills require 120 volts of electricity which is generated at 60HZ of alternating AC current.
- Place your treadmill on a dedicated 15-20AMP circuit* to ensure power and avoid tripping your breaker.
- GFCI** outlets or surge protectors are not compatible with appliances, which can cut off power posing a safety risk.
- Plug your treadmill directly into a grounded outlet*** with no surge protectors or extension cords****. Not doing so may void your warranty.
Treadmill Motor Horsepower Ratings
T101 - 2.5HP
T202 - 2.75HP
7.0AT - 3.0HP
7.4AT - 3.5HP
7.8AT - 4.0HP
The stated motor Horsepower (HP) is based on measurement in a laboratory setting. It is an indication of the robustness of the motor and does not reflect the operational HP in home use, which is typically limited by home electrical systems.
*A dedicated outlet means that no other electronic devices are sharing power from the same 15-20 AMP circuit.
**A GFCI outlet acts like a surge protector. This could cause issues including the treadmill tripping a breaker, the motor not receiving the full voltage to function properly and causing a hot motor or burning smell from your treadmill.
***A grounded plug is three-pronged device. Please ensure your grounded wire is connected properly.
****’Extension cords for high voltage items adversely affect the performance of your treadmill posing a fire hazard and damage to the treadmill by overloading or not providing enough voltage for it to function properly.
Please contact a certified electrician for more details.
