SOURCE: Screen states Lube Belt ,

hi,


It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months or 150 miles to maintain optimal performance. Once the treadmill reaches 150 miles, the console will display the message "LUBE" or "LUBE BELT". The treadmill will not operate while the message is showing. Hold Stop for 5 seconds to suspend message for 5 miles. Your treadmill came with a bottle of lubricant which can be used for two applications. If you need lubricant, contact Horizon Fitness. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon Fitness.

• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power

cord at the wall outlet.

• Loosen both the rear roller bolts. (For best results, place two removable

marks on both sides of the frame and note roller position). Once the

belt is loosened, take the bottle of lubricant and apply it to the entire

top surface of the running deck. Tighten both rear roller bolts

(matching up the marks for proper position) to original position. After

you have applied lubricant, plug in the power cord, insert the safety

key, start the treadmill and walk on the belt for two minutes to spread

the lubricant.

• Lubricate the air shocks with Teflon based spray.
• Once lubrication is complete, reset the console by pressing and holding 'STOP' and Speed '+' buttons for 5 seconds.
ok

SOURCE: Belt Lube sign appeared. So I lubricated the belt

You probably have keypad failure since we don't know the make & model# of your unit it is better to contact the manufacturer directly and get the proper guidance & parts.

How to lubricate a precor treadmill belt?


About This Video

Video about How to Lubricate a Treadmill using Liquid Lube
  • This vidoe 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 and 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 todays demonstration of how to lubricate a treadmill using the liquid lube.

Treadmill


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.

My roger black treadmill keeps tripping the eletric


This could be a lubrication issue if this treadmill has never been serviced or worn belt/ deck. The last thing I am thinking about is if the unit is turned on with nobody on the unit and trips the the breaker then you have a shorted lower board.
1. Inspect belt and deck. The deck should be smooth. The belt should have a consistent feel from side to side (a belt can be worn out without any sensory signs of a problem). If you feel deep grooves in the deck or uneven wear on the underside of the belt, part replacement is necessary. Continued use of your treadmill may damage expensive electrical components. 2. To inspect the belt and deck visually or to clean underneath the belt before applying lubricant, the belt must have the tension reduced. Loosen the tension roller by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. Do not loosen the bolts in the tension roller too far or the bolts will come out of the roller shaft. This step may not be necessary for your treadmill model or belt and deck condition. 3. Contaminants are the worst enemy of your belt and deck. Some treadmills may have an excessive accumulation of dirt and contaminants. If these are trapped during the belt lube process, significant damage will occur. If contaminant removal is necessary, loosen the belt by following step 2, lay the treadmill on its’ side, and use a nylon brush to loosen contaminants that have accumulated on the inside of the belt. Clean the deck with mineral spirits in a well-ventilated area. Allow the deck to dry before lubing or tightening the belt.
4. Lift the belt and use approximately ½ of the tube by squeezing the lube in the walking area lengthwise. Move to the opposite side of the treadmill and repeat using the remainder of the lube. Use all of the contents of a single container during application. Do not put any lubricant on any surface with which your feet make contact. The lube will spread evenly in the next step. Do not perform this step by hand. The lube is usually not harmful to the skin but has the potential to permanently stain fabric. 5. Adjust belt tension and centering following your owner’s manual instructions if you have loosened the belt to clean. LOOSENING THE WALKING BELT IS NOT NECESSARY JUST TO APPLY THE LUBE. Start the treadmill at 2-3 mph and allow to run for 5 minutes without walking on the treadmill. Check centering carefully and adjust as needed following your owner’s manual instructions. Using your treadmill’s handrails and safety switch for safety and support, walk on the treadmill at 2-3 mph. CAUTION!!! BELT MAY HESISTATE. THIS CAN CREATE AN INJURY IF BELT IS NOT PROPERLY TENSIONED! Within 5 minutes the lube will be preliminarily walked in to the backing of the belt. Damage and/or injury may occur if the belt is not properly centered and tensioned by using your owner’s manual. 5. CAUTION: Do not run on the treadmill until your are certain the belt tension and centering is correct according to your owner’s manual specifications. Make certain that there are no friction.
Go on E-Bay you may purchase a kit or a single application all of them are a silicone base lubricant so don't worry about which is the best. The application will also determine if the visual inspection and cleaning did the job and if the breaker trips then you have a belt and deck issue.
