Exercise equipment like an elliptical or treadmill has many intricate moving parts. As a result, sometimes, these machines can malfunction or stop working altogether. Fortunately, many of these issues can be solved by repairing or replacing a part.
The average lifespan of a treadmill is between seven and 12 years. Regular inspection and maintenance will likely keep your treadmill performing for much longer while neglect could shorten its lifespan.
Keep the console moisture-free and wipe it down after use. Dust can be detrimental to the life of a treadmill. For best results, keep the area around the treadmill clean. Inspect and tighten bolts and screws monthly. Also, lubricate the walking belt with silicone-based lubricant every three months or after every 25 hours of use.
If the treadmill will not turn on, make sure all plugs are firmly in place. Check if a breaker has tripped or if your power strip has been turned off. If necessary, make sure the wall outlet is working properly. Finally, inspect the power cord and look for cuts or kinks.
