Walking Belt / Deck Lubrication
The TreadClimber machine boasts of a low-maintenance belt and deck system. Belt friction, however, may affect the general function and overall lifespan of the machine. This is why the TreadClimber machine comes with a starter supply of special lubricants for the belts.
When it comes to lubrication schedule, a light need for lubrication requires lubricating job every 3 months, moderate need means lubricating every 2 months, and heavy requirement needs lubrication job every month. It is recommended to use Lube-N-Walk, which is a treadmill Lubrication Kit and 100 percent pure silicone.
Lubricate the Treadles with a silicone lubricant while following these instructions:
1. Remove batteries from the TreadClimber.
2. Lift belt carefully in order to apply silicone lubricant at the central portion along the entire length of the Treadle deck. Apply 0.25 ounce of the silicone lubricant on the deck below each walking belt.
3. Stay on one side of the TreadClimber while grasping the handlebars for balance and support.
4. With a foot, push the belt to the rear portion of the machine at a slow speed for 15 seconds. Avoid stepping on excessive oil, grease, or lubricant while pushing out the belt.
Remember to clean excess lubricant found on the Treadles. It is recommended to periodically inspect Treadle surfaces located under the belts. If decks become worn-out, call a TreadClimber agent for assistance. .
To lessen any possibility of slipping, make sure that the Treadle is without any oil or grease. Wipe any excessive oil from the surfaces of the machine.
Aligning Walking Belt
Walking belts must be adjusted properly if they become misaligned and go out of center enough to produce scraping or rubbing noise. Necessary adjustments are performed at the front rollers of Treadles.
Adjusting Walking Belts – While the machine is being operated, you will see the walking belts running on the treadle. Adjustment bolts of the belt are located at the front of every roller.
If the belt tracks farther to the right part, you must utilize a 5 millimeter hex wrench to move right adjustment bolt clockwise in an increment of a half turn.
With the use of the wrench, put the walking belts into action for less than a minute to check if the belt has been properly adjusted. Repeat adjustment whenever necessary. If the tracks move to the far left, perform same action on the left adjustment bolt of the walking belt.
