TOPIC: Any Gazelle (Elite) Users-I need battery changing help!!

January 22, 2010 1:51 PM
I recently took my Gazelle out of inactive status to use instead of freezing my touche off walking outside in the rain. This is not the lightest weight model, but the one that has a little more substantial frame and can carry more weight, but it is not the top of the line one.

It has a computer that will show distance, calories, time, etc. That unit is battery operated, and I can't find ANYTHING online that tells me how to get it open to replace the batteries!!! I googled, and found copies of owners manuals, but I can't find anything, even on a mfg'rs site, that says how to get that silly thing open. I also don't see any evidence of a sliding compartment in which to put batteries.

Can someone help? I hope so. Thanks!!!

My gazelle's battery is under the display. The plastic casing just snaps together over the metal bar. I had a harder time getting it back together than I did apart. I wish I could help more. Good luck.

Mine fits the same way over the ,metal bar, but there are no marks to indicate where a person would squeeze or do whatever to get it open. Later models apparently have this, as my neighbor has a more recent version than I do.

Assuming yours is like mine, HOW did you manage to get it open? I have considered dynamite, noway but since I live in a condo, my neighbors might not appreciate that approachlaugh

WHile there are little arrows that invite you to squeeze and lift the top off, you have to take two phillips head screws out, one on each end of the thing before the entire top lifts off. I just searched to find this info but had to forge ahead on my own.
