4. Protecting Your Treadmill

Keep the machine on perfectly level ground. This keeps the belt aligned properly and produces less friction, keeping the belt and deck from wearing down too quickly. You check if it is on level by laying next to it. You can also purchase a treadmill mat to minimize excessive forces and vibrations. Install a surge protector, this will keep your treadmill’s electronic part safe during unexpected power surges and outages.

Keep any cords or wires that may be connected to your treadmill (for example, an iPod or music system) wrapped up neatly when not in use. This will protect them from damage and also keep them from getting caught in any part of the machine while you're using it.

Look for any loose nuts or bolts on a monthly basis and tighten them as needed. If you’re using your treadmill and you start experiencing a burning smell, immediately stop using your treadmill, turn it off, and unplug it from the wall. Read manuals thoroughly before performing on-your-own maintenance or repair. Keep servicing the machine after every month or two.
