5 top tips to care for your treadmill


Lubricate the belt:

It’s important to take good care of your treadmill deck (the walking surface underneath the belt), because the belt/deck friction may affect the function and life of your treadmill and requires periodic lubrication.

Your treadmill belt has been lubricated at the factory, but periodic lubrication will extend the life of your treadmill belt, board, and electrical components. We recommend the following lubrication schedule based on weekly usage:

  • Provided with the treadmill is a small sample bottle of lubrication oil. Use this for the initial lubrication. Thereafter you may use Silicone spray which is available from your local hardware or Auto Shop. Ensure that the Silicone spray purchased is a multi-purpose enhancer, lubricant and protectant.
  • Insert the straw-like spray valve in the spray head of the lubricant container.
  • Lift the belt at one side and hold the spray valve at a distance to the front end of walking belt and deck. Start at the front end of the belt. Lean the spray valve towards the rear. Repeat this process on the other side of the belt. Spray each side for about 4 seconds.
  • Wait 1 minute to let the silicon spray spread, before starting the machine.

HANDY TIP: RUB YOUR FINGER TIP VIGOROUSLY ON THE DECK, IF IT MAKES A SQUEAKING NOISE, THE DECK NEEDS LUBRICATING.

Belt Adjustment:
As walking belts tend to stretch slightly with use, the belt may occasionally need to be tightened. If the belt is too loose, you may find the belt stops during use, while the motor continues to run.

When properly tensioned, you should be able to lift the side of the belt about 6 to 7.5 cm. A quick test for the belt tension: you should be able to fit three fingers under the edge of the belt.


Cleaning:
General cleaning of your treadmill will prolong its life and improve its performance. Keep the unit clean by dusting regularly. Be sure to dust the exposed part of the deck on either side of the walking belt and also the side rails.

For best performance, we recommend your treadmill be placed on a treadmill mat. Along with reducing noise, a mat will help to keep dust debris away from your treadmill’s critical components. Clean the top of the belt with a damp, soapy cloth. Be careful to keep liquid away from inside the frame or underneath the treadmill belt.


Storage:
After you’ve finished your workout, it’s important to turn off your machine on the treadmill itself as well as unplugging it from a powerpoint outlet.  After the power is off, fold up the treadmill by lifting the walking deck until it’s upright and you hear a click. This helps to ensure it’s out of the way, avoids any bumps and knocks, and is not a temptation for pets or young children to interfere with.


Other Maintenance:
If for any reason you notice your machine is not performing the way it should, please check your Manual booklet provided with the machine. In there you will find troubleshooting information that can help fix issues.  If you have followed this instructions and need additional help, or would like to chat about other maintenance to your machine, please call our Customer Service team on 1300 13 55 96 or can guide you through the process or arrange a service technician to your home.



WARNING: ALWAYS UNPLUG THE TREADMILL FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET BEFORE CLEANING, LUBRICATING OR SERVICING THE UNIT.
