Exercise facilities should inspect their treadmills to confirm whether they have a power cord bracket installed on the unit. If the bracket is not already installed, facilities should ensure that the power cord is completely inserted into the power socket on the treadmills prior to each use, until repaired. Contact Johnson Health Tech North America to schedule a free installation of a power cord bracket or to order a power cord bracket for self-installation. Johnson Health Tech North America is contacting all known purchasers directly.
