MAINTENANCE TIPS
Preventative maintenance is the key to smoothly operating equipment, as well as keeping the user’s liability to a minimum. Equipment needs to be inspected at regular intervals. Defective components must be replaced immediately. Improperly working equipment must be kept out of use until it is repaired. Ensure that any person(s) making adjustments or performing maintenance or repair of any kind is qualified to do so.
AFTER EACH USE (DAILY)
Clean and inspect, following these steps:
# Turn off the treadmill with the ON / OFF switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
# Wipe down the running belt, deck, motor cover, and console casing with a damp cloth. Never use solvents, as they can cause damage to the treadmill.
# Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact Customer Technical Support.
# Make sure the power cord is not underneath the treadmill or in any other area where it can become pinched or cut.
# Check the tension and alignment of the running belt. Make sure that the treadmill belt will not damage any other components on the treadmill by being misaligned.
# If any labels are damaged or illegible, contact Customer Technical Support for replacements.
EVERY WEEK (WEEKLY)
Clean underneath the treadmill following these steps:
# Turn off the treadmill with the ON / OFF switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
# Fold the treadmill into the upright position, making sure that the lock latch is secured.
# Move the treadmill to a remote location.
# Wipe or vacuum any dust particles or other objects that may have accumulated underneath the treadmill.
# Return the treadmill to its previous position.
EVERY MONTH - IMPORTANT
# Turn off the treadmill with the ON / OFF switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
# Inspect all assembly bolts of the machine for proper tightness.
# Remove the motor cover. Wait until ALL display screens turn off.
# Clean the motor and lower board area to eliminate any lint or dust particles that may have accumulated. Failure to do
so may result in premature failure of key electrical components.
# Vacuum and wipe down the belt with a damp cloth. Vacuum any black / white particles that may accumulate around the unit. These particles may accumulate from normal treadmill use.
EVERY 6 MONTHS OR 150 MILES
It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months or 150 miles (240 kilometers) to maintain optimal performance. Once the treadmill reaches 150 miles (240 kilometers), 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.
# 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.
TENSIONING & CENTERING THE RUNNING BELT
If you can feel a slipping sensation when running on the treadmill, the running belt must be tightened. In most cases, the belt has stretched from use, causing the belt to slip. This is a normal and common adjustment. To eliminate this slipping, turn the treadmill off and tension both the rear roller bolts using the supplied Allen wrench, turning them ¼ turn to the right as shown. Turn the treadmill on and check for slipping. Repeat if necessary, but never turn the roller bolts more than ¼ turn at a time. Belt is properly tensioned when the slipping sensation is gone.
The running belt has been properly adjusted at the factory before it was shipped. At times the belt can move off-center during shipment. Before operating the treadmill, make sure the belt is centered and remains centered to maintain smooth operation.
If the running belt is too far to the right side: With the treadmill running at 1 mph, turn the left adjustment bolt counter-clockwise1/4  turn at a time (using the supplied Allen wrench). Check the belt alignment. Allow belt to run a full cycle to gauge if more adjustment is needed. Repeat if necessary, until the belt remains centered during use.
