Usually a spark means you have a problem with either the drive motor or motor controller board became damaged. Unplug unit remove the motor shroud physically inspect the motor and board for any signs of arching then replaced the board. Next use a multi meter to check continuity of the drive motor by removing the red and black leads that attached to the board if a reading is much more than 1.0 to 2.0 ohms then your motor is also damaged need to be replaced.

Tunturi.com or accellfitnessna.com should have the lubricant you need. Order it online and they should be able to ship it directly to your house. I service tunturi treadmills, although I haven't come across a teflon lubricated machine, it is very important with these machines you stick with the manufacturer specified lubricants.

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.
LUBRICATING THE RUNNING DECK).
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
THE RUNNING DECK
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.
