Treadmill Troubleshooting

Treadmill troubleshooting feature is an integral part of all treadmill companies. A problem can occur anywhere and to anyone. Being a machine, treadmill is no exception to that. The most common treadmill troubleshooting is related to its motor. The motor is actually the heart of the treadmill. If the motor becomes faulty and needs to be looked at, it is better to take advice from an expert. Look in the invoice for its warranty period and contact the dealer from where you had purchased the treadmill. Many branded companies offer treadmills with lifetime warranty. Then, it is quite easy for the owner to get the motor replaced in case it ceases to function.

Another potential area of troubleshooting in a treadmill is the belt and deck area. The deck should be smooth and also the belt. If there are some deep grooves or unevenness, its time to get the belt replaced.

There are occasions when you step on the treadmill to workout and the treadmill shuts down. This can be due to the friction setback between the deck and belt. The associated problems may cover tripping of circuit after working for a certain time period, or the treadmill automatically getting shut off, albeit power is being shown. Sometimes, the treadmill shuts off in irregular rhythm, reason being a loose end wire or faulty control panel.

Another major treadmill troubleshooting area is the speed problem. To confirm that your treadmill has faulty speed, keep it on at set speed as mentioned in your manual and note any variations visible in duration of time. The erratic speed can arise due to any faulty DC output or wear out in the deck and belt area. Once troubleshoot is confirmed, avoid going for a local or cheap fix. It is better to call the experts and let them make your expensive workout machine function smoothly again.
