At All Island Fitness Repair, we offer the premiere maintenance and repair services for your vital gym equipment and machines! Whether you’re an at-home fitness enthusiast, or run a commercial gym, All Island Fitness repair is here to help. One of our most common services is treadmill maintenance. Treadmills are some of the most widely used pieces of equipment in any gym, home or commercial. And they can often fall into disrepair and must be properly maintained. Maintaining your treadmill regularly will help prolong its lifespan and ensure its proper function, while making sure you get the absolute most out of your machinery. We offer treadmill repair and maintenance services including:
- Cleaning: Proper maintenance includes thorough cleaning. With any treadmill, its important to wipe down the running deck, handrails, and control panel after each use with a damp cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning products.
- Lubrication: It’s important to lubricate the running deck every 6 to 12 months using a silicone-based lubricant. Avoid using wax or petroleum-based products, as they can damage the belt and deck.
- Belt Alignment: Probably one of the most common issues with any treadmill over time. Check the belt alignment regularly and adjust it if necessary. A properly aligned belt should be centered on the deck and not touch the sides.
- Tension Adjustment: Treadmills work on tension, and it’s vital to check the tension on the belt regularly and adjust it if necessary. A properly tensioned belt should be tight enough to prevent slipping but loose enough to allow for easy movement.
- Electrical Maintenance: Electrical issues with a treadmill are all too common! Regular maintenance includes checking the wiring and connections for any damage or loose connections.
- Motor Servicing: Over time, it’s important to have the motors of your treadmill checked and serviced by a professional. Motors that are overheating, making strange noises, or losing power should be serviced immediately.
- Treadmill Calibration: Treadmills like any other piece of equipment, must often be recalibrated over time. At All Island, we can help calibrate the speed, incline, and other settings regularly to ensure accurate readings.
Make sure your treadmill stays in top working condition for many years to come. For more information or to get a repair estimate, be sure to contact All Island Fitness Repair today.
