WHETHER YOU'RE AN EXPERIENCED RUNNER OR JUST LIKE WALKING, YOUR TREADMILL IS YOUR BEST FRIEND, SO MAKE SURE YOU TAKE CARE OF IT

Follow our maintenance guide and give your Domyos fitness equipment a long life.

GIVE YOUR TREADMILL A CLEAN IN JUST TWO MINUTES

Make sure you give your treadmill a good wipe down after each session. In leaving it clean for your next one, you'll want to keep on working out. Look out for any droplets of sweat, which is corrosive and can leave a lasting mark on your machine.

 

How to clean your treadmill.

-       Switch off and unplug your treadmill.

-       Apply a little gentle cleaning product to an all-cotton cloth. Do not spray detergent directly onto your treadmill and do not use ammonia- or acid-based cleaning products.

-       Wipe the console and the screens.

-       Wipe dust and marks from the ramp, surrounds, footrest, frame and motor cover. You should also wipe the platform alongside the belt. Do not clean under the belt.

 

If your treadmill also has a heart rate belt, don't forget to clean it after every session.

CHECK THE KEY PARTS OF YOUR TREADMILL REGULARLY

Is your treadmill squeaking or making a noise? Then try making the following adjustments:

 

CENTRING THE BELT

If the belt is rubbing against something and making a noise, then you need to centre it. This will also protect the foot rails on either side of the belt from wear and tear caused by friction.

How to centre the belt on your treadmill.

Take the Allen key provided with your treadmill.

1. Switch on your treadmill and set it at a low speed (4 km/h).

2. Fit the key into the screw head on the side where the belt is out of line.

3. Turn in a clockwise direction one quarter of a turn (wait for 30 seconds between each quarter of a turn) until the belt moves back into the correct position.

 

 

BELT TENSION

Keep a close eye on the tension of the belt, as it will wear and become slack over time. If you can feel it slipping or jolting or the motor is overheating, then you should check it. Running on a slack belt is not safe. If the belt is too tight, however, this can damage the motor and electronics.

How to adjust the tension of the belt.

1 and 2. Turn the two adjustment screws a half turn clockwise (repeat if necessary, but make sure you don't over-tighten the belt).

3. The tension of the belt is correct if you can lift the edges up 2 to 3cm on both sides.

 

 

LUBRICATING THE BELT

Look after the motor and extend its lifespan by lubricating it. This will stop the deck and belt from rubbing together. If you don't lubricate properly, the motor can overheat and consume too much energy, which could lead to the belt breaking.

 

To extend the lifespan of your treadmill you should lubricate it every 200 hours of use. To check the belt, slip your hand underneath. If the centre is dry then it needs to be lubricated.

How to lubricate your belt

1 and 2. Two sprays of lubricant on the left and right side of the belt should be enough.

3. After spraying the belt, let your treadmill run for five minutes at 5 km/h without you running or walking on it.
