    I had the same problem at a local gym. At only 180 lbs I shook up whatever treadmill I ran on enough that gym management asked me not to use the treadmills. I have seen others use the same treadmills without the same problem. I can only conclude that it must be my technique (and possibly that could be your problem), but have no idea how to fix that...

Treadmill causing shocks

What is the cause for static on my treadmill? Winter is the time of year we receive calls regarding static electricity primarily on treadmills.In fact, many of the OEMs state they expect a certain amount of static, especially during this time of year.
Listed below are some of the sources which may be responsible for the static problems:
Items that gyms have control over:
  1. Worn motor brushes
  2. Worn belt/deck
  3. Lubrication maintenance
  4. Lack of humidity in air
  5. Dusty climate
  6. Bad ground
  7. Unit should not be on carpet
Suggested Solutions:
  1. If motor brushes are worn, replace
  2. If belt/deck are worn, replace
  3. Always keep belt/deck lubricated
  4. Run humidifiers in gym
  5. Keep equipment as clean and dust free as possible
  6. Check ground of machine (power outlet, power cord, drive motor)
  7. Install a rubber treadmill mat
Items that gyms have NO control over:
  1. Dehydration of user
  2. Dry skin of user
  3. Wool or synthetic materials (nylon, spandex, polyester)
  4. Run pattern of user (shuffling feet vs. smooth stride)
  5. Shoes
Suggested Solutions:
  1. Encourage users to drink more water to avoid dehydration (which results in dry skin)
  2. Encourage users to use lotion and drink more water (less friction with hydrated skin)
  3. Suggest users to wear clothing of natural fibers (cotton)
  4. Suggest change in run pattern
  5. Encourage wearing good fitting shoes (old shoes may be too worn causing friction) and shoes without nylon mesh
It has also been recommended users spray themselves with a product such as Static Guard or mist themselves with a mixture of water and fabric softener to avoid static buildup. Allow for sprayed areas to thoroughly dry before using treadmill.

Dear Sir:

I will try to help you:

If any error code appears on the display or there are other

malfunctions, proceed as follows:

1. Turn off the power switch for a minute and then
turn it on again.

2. Insure the tether key is properly inserted.

3. Insure the power cord is properly plugged.

4. Insure the treadmill is properly lubricated (see 4.3.


5. If the error code does not disappear after the

above mentioned maintenance actions, please

contact your local TUNTURI dealer. Always give

the error code and serial number (see the sticker

at the back of the frame, below the left-hand side



Lubrication is the most important service activity for the

treadmill. This is absolutely essential, if the friction of the

running deck increases noticeably or the motor begins to

heat up. Lubrication intervals must under no circumstances

exceed 200 usage kilometres; we recommend relubrication

once a month. During the first 200 km of use, the running

deck must be lubricated at intervals of 50 km. Insufficient

lubrication will cause the belt, running deck and motor to

wear out and break.

NOTE! Before you start to use your treadmill, it must be

carefully lubricated per the lubrication instructions

below! NOTE! If the treadmill is not used for at least

three weeks, it must be carefully lubricated per the

lubrication instructions below!

The need for relubrication depends to a great extent on the

running styles and weight of the user: heavy user weight and

slow speed put particular strain on the device and therefore

demand greater lubrication. Use only the teflon enclosed to

lubricate the treadmill. Contact your local TUNTURI dealer

for further supplies of teflon.

NOTE! The device must under no circumstances be

lubricated with silicone!

Please apply teflon by using the pressurised can provided
with these instructions.

instructions on the teflon bottle carefully.

1. Let the treadmill run at a slow speed and spray

teflon into the lubrication pipe underneath the

treadmill. The pipe is marked with a decal.

2. When teflon is applied for the first time, the

spraying time with the pressurised can should be

approximately 20 seconds. Later, a spraying time of

10 seconds is sufficient.

3. Teflon drops through the holes of the lubrication

pipe to the center of the running belt; the treadmill

is instantly ready for use.

Please ensure after each time that you relubricate your

treadmill that a strip of about 8" wide on the underside of the

running belt becomes moist with teflon oil along its whole
length. If necessary,

If you need further assistance, please reach me, sincerely. God bless you.

I am 230 lbs. and when I try to run intervals on the treadmill belt stalls out all of the time causing a stutter, and I almost fall down.

hi it seems like the running belt is too loose try tighten it. you should be able to lift the belt up 2 to 3 inches if more then def tighten the belt. after this if the problem is still there then the belt on the motor needs adjusting.

I started up my treadmill after a year sabbatical :) to find that it stops abruptly when I increase the speed above 4 and then when I restarted it as soon as I stood on the belt the motor lagged & then...

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift the edges of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.
