Lubricating your Xterra Treadmill is an important part of routine maintenance to ensure its longevity and performance. Without regular lubrication, your treadmill can become noisy, wear out faster, and cause strain on your motor and other treadmill components. Fortunately, lubricating your Xterra treadmill is easy and can be done quickly in just a few steps.
To begin, you’ll need a 100% silicone based treadmill lubricant. This type of lubricant is specifically designed for treadmills and should not be substituted with any other type of lubricant. Once you’ve acquired the correct lubricant, you can start the process.
Begin by unplugging your treadmill from the wall outlet. Next, locate the belt on the treadmill and locate the walking belt. You’ll need to use your fingers to slightly lift the walking belt from the deck in order to get to the underside of the belt.
Once you’ve located the underside of the belt, you’ll need to apply a thin line of lubricant along the length of the belt. You can use the applicator nozzle included with the lubricant or a paper towel to apply the lubricant. Make sure the lubricant is evenly distributed and there are no clumps or gaps.
After lubricating the belt, you’ll need to plug the treadmill back in and turn it on. Allow the treadmill to run for several minutes at a slow, steady speed. This will help the lubricant spread evenly along the length of the belt. Once you’ve done this, you can turn the treadmill off and wipe away any excess lubricant with a paper towel.
Finally, it’s important to check the walking belt occasionally to make sure it’s properly lubricated. If it starts to become noisy or squeaky, you may need to reapply the lubricant. Doing this every few months will help ensure your Xterra treadmill is in top condition for many years to come.
