I started by removing the bottom of the treadmill. It turns out that most of the good stuff is accessed from the top, so I'd start there next time. The transformer-like thing is a large choke coil, which is needed. I'm not sure if I could have gotten that out from the top or not.

The gizmo in the center of the picture is the motor that raises and lowers the treadmill platform to simulate walking uphill. The incline motor is bi-directional, and heavily geared down -- it might be useful for something. It's an AC motor: apply 110V between common and one of the other terminals to turn the motor one way or the other. I kept it, but I'm not sure what I might do with it.
