How to assemble a treadmill

Top tips on how to assemble a treadmill. Focusing on the care points that often cause issue when putting together a machine, we show you how best to assemble your treadmill.

How to lubricate a treadmill belt

It is important to note that an insufficiently lubricated deck will cause the belt, running deck and the motor to wear out much quicker. Give your machine a longer life and help it run smoothly with these simple instructions on how to lubricate your treadmill belt. You can buy treadmill lubricant in our fitness accessories section of the shop.

How often lubrication should be applied depends on usage, we recommend the following:

  • Light use (less than 3 hours a week) - lubricate every 8 months
  • Medium use (3 to 5 hours a week) - lubricate every 4 months
  • Heavy user (more than 5 hours a week) - lubricate every 2 months
    • To check for sufficient lubrication levels, disconnect the treadmill from the power supply. Put your hand underneath the mat and feel along the running deck, as close to the centre of the deck as you can. If your hand gets a light coating of lubricant, then no further lubrication is required.

      If the surface feels dry and your hand feels clean, then apply more lubricant in the central area of the running belt. Re-apply 15ml or 20ml of lubricant as required.

      Be careful not to over-lubricate the belt. Add a little lubricant at a time, reconnect power to the treadmill and walk it for at least 15 to 20 minutes and then re-check. Repeat the process if necessary, until the desired result is achieved.

      Note: With a folding treadmill, we recommend that it is not folded immediately after applying silicon lubricant. The treadmill will need to be used for at least 15 to 20 minutes to ensure the silicon lubricant is evenly spread and fully absorbed into the running belt before folding.
