How To Maintain Your Treadmill

Whether you are a occasional or professional runner, your Domyos treadmill is your best bud :) Take care of it, with these simple maintenance tips, to ensure its longevity! 

1

Clean Your Treadmill In 2 Minutes! 

Cleaning the treadmill is a step that should not be neglected. Clean your treadmill after each session, to wipe away any traces of perspiration. Our perspiration is corrosive and it can cause permanent damage to your treadmill if it is not cleaned after each workout. Also, with a clean and "fresh" treadmill, you will be more motivated to hop on it!

How to clean your treadmill?

- Switch off and unplug your treadmill.

- Apply a small amount of universal mild cleaning soap to a 100% cotton cloth. Do not spray the cleaner directly on the treadmill and do not use ammonia or acid cleaners.

- Wipe down the console and screen. 

- Remove dust and stains on the ramps, the footrests, the frame and the engine cover. Also wipe the platform along the running strip. Do not clean under the running belt.

If your model has a heart rate belt, remember to clean it with water after each session.

Check Your Treadmill Belt Regularly

Does your treadmill squeak or make a noise? Remember to check your treadmill belt. Here's how:

Check If Your Treadmill Belt Is In The Centre

Belt slanting is very common. This is caused by the way we run. Our dominant leg tends to apply more pressure while we run, as compared to our non-dominant leg. As a result, the belt is naturally pulled to a side, after some time. 

How To Centre Your Treadmill Belt

How do you center the treadmill belt?

Use the Allen key (BTR) supplied with your treadmill.

1. Start your treadmill at low speed (4Km / h).

2. Insert the allen key into the screw on the side where the running belt deflects.

3. Turn clockwise by quarter turn (wait 30 seconds between each given quarter turn) until the belt returns to the correct position.

Check The Tension Of Your Treadmill Belt

The tension of the running belt should be your primary focus, as it is liable to relax over time. Certain phenomena such as slippage, jerks or even engine overheating would be your first indicators of a relaxed treadmill belt. A relaxed treadmill belt will not allow you to practice safely. Conversely, a too tight band will damage the engine and the electronics of the device.

Check Your Treadmill Belt Tension

How to adjust the tension of your treadmill belt?

1 and 2. Turn the 2 adjustment screws half a turn clockwise (repeat the action if necessary, but be careful not to increase the tension the belt too much).

3. The treadmill belt is properly stretched if you can lift the edges 2-3 cm on each side.

Lubricate Your Treadmill Belt

Using a lubricant will preserve your engine and improve its longevity. This simple operation will prevent friction between the race board and the belt. In the event that the lubrication is not enough, the motor overheats, which could cause the belt to trip. 

It is important to do lubricate the belt regularly (every 200 hours of use) to ensure a good longevity. To carry out this check, run your hand under the running strip, it should not be dry, in the center.

How To Lubricate Your Treadmill Belt
