There are a few different ways that you can turn off your NordicTrack elliptical. 

The first and the easiest one is to do the opposite of what you did to turn it on, to:

1. Stop pedaling

Taking a few steps forward on the machine should power up the display. By doing the polar opposite you get the opposite result.

So the simplest way to power off your NordicTrack machine is to just step out of it and it should power off by itself.

If the pedals do not move for several seconds, a tone will sound and the console will pause.

However, if the pedals do not move for several minutes and the buttons are not pressed, the console will turn off and the display will be reset.

The nex method is to turn off the machine completely by pressing on the power switch to the OFF position and unplug the power cord.

2. Use the power switch button

If you own one of the newer NordicTrack ellipticals that has a switch on the back to turn it off completely. 

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it can still be effective in limiting your machine’s use. 

The power switch on your elliptical is actually a switch that physically turns the machine on and off. 

This means that if you have a machine that has the switch on the back of the machine, you’ll need to move the switch to turn it back on.

The NordicTrack power switch button is located on the frame near the power cord.

If you are having trouble finding it, just follow the power cord to where it inserts into the elliptical, and you will find it right next to it.

Bottom Line

There are a few old tricks that you can use to turn off NordicTrack elliptical, which is especially helpful if you own a model that has an on/off switch.

All you need to do is either turn OFF the power switch button and remove the power cord if it has one, if not just step off the machine and the console will turn itself off after several minutes.
