Video about How to Lubricate a Treadmill using Liquid Lube

  • This video will demonstrate how to properly lubricate your treadmill belt and deck. This demonstration is for the application of liquid lube.
  • To begin, clean the deck and belt by loosening the rear roller bolts 10 turns as seen in the video. It is best to loosen each side five turns and then repeat the process.
  • Now that the belt is loose you can take an old towel and place it under the belt as shown in the video. Move the towel up and down the deck, then using your hands pull the belt around half way to ensure you have completely cleaned the back of the belt. Then remove the towel.
  • Open your lube packet and use half of the package to make a half circle on the deck, from the front outer portion of the deck toward the center and then back to the outer edge. Use about half the package for this arc. Now repeat the process on the opposite side. Be sure to wipe up any excess oil as it is very slick!
  • Use your hand to move the belt around some more to begin spreading the lubricant out.
  • Now tighten the rear roller bolts back to the exact amount of turns they were loosened previously.
  • Power on and start the machine; let it run slowly for a few seconds to make sure the belt is staying aligned in the center of the deck area. If it is not centered correctly, make minor adjustments to correct the issue. Tighten the left bolt to move the belt to the right and tighten the right bolt to move the belt to the left. Now walk on the belt for a minute or so to fully distribute the lubricant.
  • This concludes today's demonstration of how to lubricate a treadmill using the liquid lube.

Loud squeaking on my Reebok 9500 ES (three years old) from under the hood when the foot hits the treadmills - at various speeds and inclines.


HI,

Its time to lubricate your treadmill.
You must obtain the proper lubricant for your treadmill. There are several different types. Contact your manufacturer for what type is needed. Using the manufacturer provided allen wrench, loosen the walking belt approximately 10 full turns on each side of the rear roller. Apply approximately 1/2 ounce of lubricant directly in the middle of the walk area underneath the walking belt upon the deck. Retighten the rear roller 10 turns on each side. Run the treadmill at 6.0 mph for 2-3 minutes to spread the lubricant evenly. Wipe excess lube from the sides of the belt. Walk on treadmill to check for proper tension on belt.

Need lubrication for proform 785 belt


Some ProForm treadmills require lubrication every six months or so, depending on the usage amount. Lift the walking belt and feel on the underside of the belt. If it is dry, you should lubricate it. ProForm recommends you use 100-percent, non-petroleum silicone spray to lubricate the walking belt. Do not use wax or other lubricants, such as WD-40 or a Teflon-based spray

After walking about 15 seconds the belt slows way down and stops completely.


The walking belt slows when walked on the walking belt maybe overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged or the opposite the drive and /or running belt may need tightening. Last thing would be that the belt needs lubrication to be applied between belt and deck.

Lubricating a treadmill


The only lube required is between the walking belt and the deck. You can get the lube from iconfitness.com. Lift the walking belt and squirt some on the deck from each side, underneath the belt in the area where you usually walk. Walk on it for a few minutes to spread the lube around.

What should I do if the treadmill walking belt slows while in use?


Sounds like your walking belt is starting to get worn,.or you need to lubricate the walking belt. Try applying a silicon lubricant, or other lubricant called for in your manual, to the bottom side of the walking belt, and the surface it contacts. ( not the drive roller).

Every motorized treadmill must need some regular type of servicing. What is the procedure? What do I need to do to keep my treadmill in good working order?


The main thing to do is keep the walk belt area clean of all shoe rubber and lint,vacuum the tread melt and edges regularly.Most treadmills have a wax lubricant in the walk belt,youcan purchase this lubricant at store that sell treadmills or you can do an on line search for treadmill lubricant.If you lift the belt and feel under the platform you should feel a slight waxy film, if not you should add wax as needed,some wax kits come with instructions, but if you just apply it to the platform area underneath the walk belt where you feet normally land when to step forward that should be fine,walk on the treadmill for a few minutes to spread the wax evenly on the underside of the belt, other than that there is no other maintenance needed.
