Treadmill maintenance: lubrication of the running belt

Correct lubrication of the running belt allows friction to be limited and helps to prolong the service life of the motor and of the motor control board. It is therefore a fundamental maintenance operation to ensure the long life of the treadmill.
For the lubrication of your treadmill we suggest you use only 100% silicone sprays and avoid sprays that use additives and petroleum distillates, which could ruin the running belt or the deck.
The belt and the deck surface must be slightly greased. If the surface is dry, proceed with lubrication by following one of the alternatives presented below
Alternative 1
1) close the treadmill in a vertical position
2) spray 3 or 4 times with the lubricant under the belt
3) reopen the treadmill, start it at low speed (4km / h) and walk for a few minutes
4) check that the lubricant is spread over the entire surface
 
Alternative 2
1) lift up the running belt
2) using a straw, spray the lubricant as much as possible towards the center of the running deck
3) start the treadmill at low speed (4km / h) and walk for a few minutes
4) check that the lubricant is spread over the entire surface
 
Caution:
1) it is important to avoid too much lubrication of the treadmill (wetting the belt).
2) try to always lubricate well the center of the deck (where you normally walk)
3) always lubricate the lower surface of the belt (between the deck and the belt, normally colored in white). NEVER lubricate the top surface of the belt (black) to avoid making it slippery.
