How To Lubricate Your Treadmill

Lubricating the Treadmill

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need to lubricate your treadmill before the first use.

WARNING: Always unplug the treadmill from the electrical outlet before cleaning, lubricating, or repairing the unit.

Lubricating your treadmill is important because it keeps your machine running smoothly and quietly. Lubricating your treadmill belt every six months or 150 miles can keep vital treadmill parts, including the belt, deck, and motor from wearing down.

 

STEP 1: Use a silicone-based treadmill lubricant.

STEP 2: Lift the side of the running belt and apply the lubricant on the treadmill in a zigzag pattern.

(Note: You should use about 1/4 of the sample bottle)
