    I don`t know what to tell you. I`m the orginal owner of the treadmill and never oiled or greased it.

  • yfontaine918 Apr 03, 2011

    about 4" dia.

  • yfontaine918 Apr 03, 2011

    OK Thanks

  • yfontaine918 Apr 05, 2011

    Sorry for my late reply, I purchased my treadmill at Costco approx 12 years ago.
    I haven't used it much until about 3 years ago when we started using it (3 hours/week).

    As you probably can tell I`m not to familiar with FixYa. Every time I look all I saw was your message telling me you would be back in 30mins. It was only this morning I saw the view more comments button.
    Even if it`s still not clear why the oil/grease spill was 4" to 5" in dia. I will give you 95% rating for you time, effort and patience. Thank you.

HI there! Treadmills dont actually have any mechanical parts that store any type of oil. There are packs of bearing in the system that use a grease pack but grease has such i high viscosity that it wont flow from the unit. Oil in fluid form is actually only used to lubricate the belt on the treadmill. Are you the second owner? If so maybe the previous owner had over oiled the belt causing it to leak on your floor. I hope that this helps shed some light on your question. Post any other questions you may have if you need more help.

    Im sorry to say but the oil wouldn't have originated from the treadmill since the only oil base lubricants are the oil on the belt and the grease on the bearings. How large is the stain? I will check one more thing that could be the possible source.

    Oh one quick question, How long have you owned this treadmill?

  • Kelly Comstock
    Kelly Comstock Apr 03, 2011

    The oil may be from the factory oiling the belt.

After the elliptical

used, make sure
that the ends of
both stabilizers
are touching the
floor. If the elliptical

Hoping that you fix this, anyway if you need some extra help, contact me.sincerely.

When I run on my 620 it feels like it slips and I almost fall, like I'm running in my socks on a tile floor. This just started happening and now I can't use it at all, is there something I can tighten?

You mean front- to-back or side- to-side?

If its side to side, adjust the allen bolts at the bottom front of the treadmill. If its front to back, and your treadmill is at least a few years old, the belt is probably stretched and needs replacing. You can get a quote for a new belt at

How to get rid of diesel oil stain on concrete floor? Last week, a leakage happened from the nozzle of the diesel tank after some sloppy maintenance works on the nozzle. The diesel dripped onto the...

If detergent and scrubbing is not working try a solvent ... but if that does work directly on the stain go the next step and create a poultice by saturating an absorptive material (such as kitty litter or sawdust) with a strong solvent (acetone, xylene, lacquer thinner, or MEK) and then smearing the material over the stain. Cover the poultice with plastic, and let the process of osmosis take over. The solvent will break down the oil, and the absorptive material will suck it out of the concrete. Part of the challenge with oil related stains in concrete is that the material has migrated below the surface into the concrete. The poultice process does takes time and may not be cost-effective or practical for removing large stains.

Ironman Triad motor cover will not come off

To remove the motor cover (#19 from parts list), you have to remove the follow items first:
- Left and right fenders (#20 and #21 from parts list)
- Left and right sideboard covers (#49 and #50 from parts list)

There are 4 screws holding the cover - 2 at the front and 1 on each side. Be careful when you lift the cover, the circuit breaker cable is attached to the cover.

Finally, you may want to reconsider doing that. There is nothing under the cover that requires maintenance. The big *** motor is driving the front tread roller through a belt. The roller has sealed bearings that do not require oil.
