How to Lube a True Treadmill

Save

To keep your True treadmill from getting "mucky" and hard to run or walk on, you'll need to occasionally lubricate it. The process involves placing a silicone lubricant in between the belt and the deck the belt moves on.

Things You'll Need

  • Treadmill hex key
  • Silicone lubricant
  • Move the treadmill to the flat position and turn it off. Unplug the treadmill. Remove the safety key.

  • Loosen the belt by unscrewing the bolts on the right and left end caps at the rear of the treadmill. Loosen the bolts a few turns until you can pull the belt off the deck a few inches.

  • Lift the belt and spray or squirt lubricant on the underside of the belt in the location you typically walk on. Spray or squirt enough lubricant to wet the area.

  • Re-tighten the hex bolts at the rear of the treadmill to pull the belt tight against the deck.

  • Place the safety key on your waistband and plug the treadmill in. Set the treadmill to a slow speed, press "start" and walk on the deck for 3 to 5 minutes to spread the lubricant around the deck.
