Treadmill Common Faults

Common Faults with Treadmills

At treadmill repair Auckland we repair all treadmills common faults and error codes.

Treadmill belt & deck replacement

Treadmills wear from use that’s why they need to be serviced. The treadmill belt and deck are like the tyres on your car, they wear out. Lubricating under your treadmill belt will certainly slow the wear down, but eventually, the wear will put too much stress on your treadmills electronics and cause an overload resulting in an E1 treadmill error on your screen.This is one of the most common treadmill faults we see it all the time. I think this would cause 70% to 80 % of the treadmill electronic faults.

That’s why you need your treadmill serviced about once a year, on top of lubricating your treadmill belt. When we service your treadmill we check the wear on your treadmill belt. We can’t stop your treadmill belt and deck from wearing out but we can help prevent your mcb or motor burning out. If you can smell an electrical burning smell or your treadmill is labouring with every step you take, your treadmill belt and deck will most probably need replacing. If your treadmill stops abruptly when you’re on it, don’t restart it as you could do more damage. Half the time the top side of your treadmill belt can look in good condition, that’s why it’s risky buying a secondhand treadmill because unless you can measure what your treadmill motor is doing, you can’t tell what condition your treadmill belt and deck are in. Sometimes your treadmill belt can come apart at the seam, if it’s at this point in its life it will need replacing, as will the deck. The treadmill belt and deck wear together and 9 times out of 10 the deck will need replacing too.

Sometimes you can break the treadmill deck. You can tell if the treadmill deck is broken because it feels like your running on sand and your feet angle inwards. If you brake your treadmill deck stop using your treadmill as it dangerous, it could lead to injury and more damage to your treadmill. Treadmill decks can break from wear or maybe your to heavy for the treadmill. Treadmill decks also brake from being used without lubrication, they get too hot and weaken. We can replace your belt and deck with parts over the counter or we have them custom made. Our custom decks are reversible and our treadmill belts are high quality for increased life and low friction.

We recommend you replace your belt and deck together and our belt/deck combo’s come with a 12-month warranty against manufacturing defects. Give us a call on +64-9-836-0910 we repair and maintain treadmills all over Auckland.
