Question about Exercise & Fitness
Sorry, but the description does not indicate what type of machine you are looking to purchase.
Assuming it is a trealmill? Not all machines use belts which need to be lubed any more. AFG (Advanced Fitness Group) uses a belt deck combo which is pre-impregnated with lube for the estimated life of the belt. Landice does not suggest any lube for their standard home use treamills but does make Slip Coat if an additional application were needed.
Traditionally, you loosen the tension on the rear roller so you can access the laminated deck, on which the belt slides on top of. Specific to each brand or model of belt, you will apply either a wax or silicone lubricant. They are usually supplied in a single "dose" or application volume. Apply the lubricant to the deck, retension the belt and start the machine at a slow pace to evenly distribute the lube.
If you were referencing an ellitical, most manufacturers just want the track or beam to remain clean. Cleaning with a light solvent with usually remove any built up. I have found White Lightning (make) Clean Ride (model) wax based lubricant can resolve any noise a good cleaning cannot fix.

Depending on the noise it could be one of several components failing.
If loud clanking or clunking noises these components are Drive Motor, Front or Rear Rollers.
If it is a loud humming noise increasing and decreasing when planting yours feet then it is either the Inductor ( square object ) or the internal windings of the Drive Motor.
Unplug your unit remove the motor shroud with a long shaft flat tip screw driver you'll be able to pin point the problem with this tool.
Now locate front shaft and rear roller tension adjusting bolt ( refer to owners Manual) plug in unit, start unit and touch flat tip on the shaft and place your ear on the handle the noise will be amplified and you will be able to locate the noise repeat this procedure on the other above mentioned components if problem is not found. GOOD LUCK!
