Monthly treadmill maintenance

Each month:

Turn off the treadmill and wait at least 60 seconds, remove the side screws and lift the motor casing. Wait until all the red LEDs are completely turned off.
Clean the motor and the area underneath. If it is not cleaned adequately it can impair the functioning of the machine.
Wipe or vacuum any dust that has accumulated through use. Inspect the belt to check that there is no excessive wear.
Regularly inspect the components of the support structure for verification that the mounting screws are not loose, and tighten if necessary. They are available at the following link
consumable parts for the maintenance of the treadmill (walking belt, running belt, lubricant).

lubrication of the treadmill

Regular lubrication can prevent excessive wear on the motor and motor control board which may lead to breakage after a short while. Although the base comes lubricated from the manufacturer, it is a good idea to lubricate when you use it for the first time, in case it has dried between the time of manufacture and the time of purchase. Moreover, it is always a good idea to lubricate it when the tool has not been used for many months (for example in the summer period). It is recommended, eventually to avoid over-lubricating, the accumulation of lubricant in fact tarnishes the tape and does not bring any benefits.

The maintenance of a treadmill is a task that must be performed regularly, but not excessively.

Note: Unplug the power cord before removing the motor cover.

Note: When performing the lubrication underneath, make sure the treadmill is placed on a surface that is easy to clean. After lubricating the bottom of the treadmill, wipe the excess silicone off the mat and frame. The silicone spray Silic One can also be used to lubricate the metal parts as it gives shine and prevents the formation of rust.
