My weslo treadmill slips when walking on it and has a bad clicking noise. When looking under the walking mat it looks like there is oil on the surface.


treadmill slips when walking Peggy, Try wiping the under side of belt of oil residue with a mixture water and little dish liquid(Dawn), to help the slipping belt. You may have to turn up the tension of belt to stop slipping if this cleaning does not do the trick.

How To Re-Wax a Wood Deck for a Trotter Treadmill


Following are instructions on how to re-wax a wood deck for a Trotter treadmill and a list of materials needed for this procedure

Materials Needed for Re-Wax

  • 1 lb. of Trotter deck wax
  • Clothes iron (never to be used on clothing again)
  • Belt sander with 120 grit sanding belt
  • Vibrating sander with 250 and 400 grit paper
Pre-Existing condition: If your wood Trotter treadmill deck is worn down through the first ply, it cannot be re-waxed.
  1. Using a belt sander and 120-grit belt, gently sand in the same direction as the grain the glazed layer off the top of the deck until you have reached porous wood. If, while sanding, the first layer of ply has been sanded off, the deck can no longer be re-waxed
  2. Using a vibrating sander with 250-grit paper, sand the entire top surface of the deck until it is smooth and soft.
  3. After sanding with the 250-grit paper, continue sanding with 400-grit paper until completely smooth.
  4. Heat the clothes iron to its maximum temperature. Put a handful of Trotter deck wax on the center surface of the deck and place the preheated iron on top of it until the wax melts.
  5. Work the wax into the deck surface by pushing the melted wax across the deck with the iron. Add more wax as needed until the entire top surface of the deck is impregnated with wax.
  6. Apply just enough wax until the wood is saturated with wax.
Do NOT leave wax pooling on the surface of the deck.

Why does my treadmill belt keep slipping?


One of three things come to mind:
1. The tension is not set correctly
2. The belt has stretched due to use
3. There is something slippery on the bottom of the belt.

The age of the unit and amount of use might be an indicator.

Machine makes a LOUD clack clack clack while running. Seems to be coming from rear belt roller area...


It is probably the join on the belt itself as it passes the over the roller. It could be a sign that the belt is breaking.

I have a summit 4500. the belt is off center to the left side and I have use all the adjustment and the belt doesn't move


Good day.
The belt can go off track for a number of reasons. If you say you've used all the adjustment and the belt doesn't move. To me this could mean that the belt either doesn't rotate or it is not moving to the center (centre), or to the right. I presume you mean it doesn't return to the center. But since you have said you've used all the adjustments, that also means that you have actually removed the plastic guards off to have done the supposed adjustments needed to make the belt track back in the center. So, here is the confusing part. Depending on which plastic guards you removed to do the supposed adjustments, normally the belt tracking bolts are at the foot of the treadmill. Stand on the treadmill, looking at the Instrument panel, the foot of the treadmill is behind you. There are two hex type adjusting bolts, one on each side. Now if the belt pulls left, you don't tension the left adjusting bolt, which would stretch the belt and make the treadmill labour worse. A belt that pulls sideways now but not when it was new, shows that the treadmill belt had been neglected. Instead, try slackening the right adjusting bolt to loosen the tension of the belt. An over tightened belt makes the motor work harder, leading to overheating and cook out, plus it also stretches the belt unnecessarily. A lose belt also means it slips at the revolving rotor (motor side) each time you impact the belt with your feet as you run or jog, therefore it means that the slippage will cause the rotor or the belt to wear out. To check on the correct tightness, lift one side of the belt at the center of the platform. It should raise no more that 2 and half inches. if it is less, it is too tight, if it is more, it is too slack. Either way, it is for you to experiments because you could be a six foot five and weight a tonne or you could be a four foot two and weight like a butterfly. Each person is different. Most treadmills are adjusted for up to five foot ten and for those that are taller or bigger, there are treadmills designed for them too. As you know, there are treadmills for all walks of life, small ones, medium ones and large ones, all designed for the appropriate weight ratio in mind. You can't use a small treadmill if you're six foot two and weight 14 stones (90 kg). There are treadmills to accommodate larger people. Most belt failures are the result of... like I said above, a number of reasons. One of them is the failure to maintain a treadmill. Lift the belt and place the palm of your hand on the metal platform (where the belt glides on) and feel if it is sticky, hard to slide the palm of your hand, or feels dry. If any of thei si evident, then your treadmill od labouring and that means the result of the belt running to one side is because it has been stretched as the motor laboriously and continuously been trying to keep going. I have a Stream treadmill and every month of continuous usage, I lubricate the underside of the belt with a quality silicone lubricant, in spray form. I never spray it directly underside, especially if I have carpeted floor, but if you have lino or polished floorboards, I suggest you don't spray it at all because it stains carpets and makes lino and floorboards slippery. Instead, use a lint free cloth. Go outside, spray the lubricant on the cloth to just soak one side, then shape the cloth into a ball, return inside and lift the belt at the center and apply the wet site of the cloth on the platform, not under the belt. Spread the lubricant evenly across the center of the platform but not towards the rollers, just the center. Then run the treadmill a little. Stop it and reapply it again. Repeat the process a third time, then run it again. Then stop it and lift the belt. With the palm of your hand, see if you can feel any moisture or a slippery feel on the platform. If it feels slippery, then the belt is lubricated properly. Do this only every month of daily use. The lubricating of the platform is almost very little. never over lubricate or you'll soon see that excess lubrication stains the machine. You can hear it when the belt runs dry. A belt that is adjusted and lubricated properly runs almost silent, but a dried out belt sounds raspy.

Trips Circuit


worn running belt and deck. You can try to clean the belt a bit using a clean towel and running it under the belt and stand on both ends. turn the tread on and let it run for a minute or so at 2mph. hit stop and pull the towel out. make sure the tread doesn't share a circuit with the fridge or a freezer, etc. As they wear the amp draw gets greater and if its sharing the circuit it will trip more and more.
Understand, please, that every time it shuts off it is because of heat in the electronics from the extra work it is doing to push/pull that running belt over an increasingly sticky surface. The cost of reoplacing a deck and belt (the deck may be two sided and be flipped) is a lot less than eating the lower power control board and/or a drive motor. Also, do the drive belt while you are doing the run belt. Don't scrimp on that $40 as it will haunt you later.

What kind of lubricant fdo you use on treadmill decks


Silicone spray. Did you put it between the deck and the underside of the running belt? Not on the surface of the belt ( where you walk ) . if you put in on the top of the belt , then this is why it is slippery.

Treadmill stops dead during workout


Dear Sir:

The most likely cause of the problem is a worn treadmill belt and deck.
Most of the time its caused from not lubricating between the treadmill belt and deck. This causes friction and the surfaces wear putting greater stress on the electronics. The treadmill is shutting down to protect the electronics.
