Working @ 100 Calories Per Hour
Treadmill has been playing up these past few weeks. Belt not staying at constant speed , motor smelling and loosing wireless connection every time I started up. I thought the stories of prolonged walking pace had finished it off. Doing a bit of research I noticed I should have been using the container of silicon grease on the belt every few months. I've been walking now for 18 Months with no maintenance. So I greased belt up and still no improvement.
Before I start looking at ebay I thought I would take the thing to pieces to see if I could see what the problem was.
See the pictures of all the crap I found in there. The belt rollers had areas of built up rubber and there was dog hair and dust covering every moving part. So I took it all apart and gave it a good clean, reassembled and re-greased. I've left the covers off underneath so I can lift it up and have a peak and brush off any accumulations. It now runs well and is much quieter than before.
