Probably the mains supply cable.
They were supplied with very poor quality cables.
Replace that first!

How do I lubricate the walking belt ?


Video about How to Lubricate a Treadmill using Liquid Lube
  • This video will demonstrate how to properly lubricate your treadmill belt and deck. This demonstration is for the application of liquid lube.
  • To begin, clean the deck and belt by loosening the rear roller bolts 10 turns as seen in the video. It is best to loosen each side five turns and then repeat the process.
  • Now that the belt is loose you can take an old towel and place it under the belt as shown in the video. Move the towel up and down the deck, then using your hands pull the belt around half way to ensure you have completely cleaned the back of the belt. Then remove the towel.
  • Open your lube packet and use half of the package to make a half circle on the deck, from the front outer portion of the deck toward the center and then back to the outer edge. Use about half the package for this arc. Now repeat the process on the opposite side. Be sure to wipe up any excess oil as it is very slick!
  • Use your hand to move the belt around some more to begin spreading the lubricant out.
  • Now tighten the rear roller bolts back to the exact amount of turns they were loosened previously.
  • Power on and start the machine; let it run slowly for a few seconds to make sure the belt is staying aligned in the center of the deck area. If it is not centered correctly, make minor adjustments to correct the issue. Tighten the left bolt to move the belt to the right and tighten the right bolt to move the belt to the left. Now walk on the belt for a minute or so to fully distribute the lubricant.
  • This concludes today's demonstration of how to lubricate a treadmill using the liquid lube.

  • Now that the belt is loose you can take an old towel and place it under the belt as shown in the video. Move the towel up and down the deck, then using your hands pull the belt around half way to ensure you have completely cleaned the back of the belt. Then remove the towel.
  • Now that the belt and deck has been cleaned; Open your wax bag and using approximately a teaspoon, place the wax on the deck as seen in the video. Now repeat the process on the opposite side. Be sure to wipe up any excess wax as it is very slick!
  • Use your hand to move the belt around some more to begin spreading the wax out.
  • Now tighten the rear roller bolts back to the exact amount of turns they were loosened previously. Remember to tighten only half way on each side then repeat the process.
  • Power on and start the machine and let it run slowly for a few seconds to make sure the belt is staying aligned in the center of the deck area. If it is not centered correctly, make minor adjustments to correct the issue. Tighten the left bolt to move the belt to the right and tighten the right bolt to move the belt to the left.

How To Re-Wax a Wood Deck for a Trotter Treadmill


Following are instructions on how to re-wax a wood deck for a Trotter treadmill and a list of materials needed for this procedure

Materials Needed for Re-Wax

  • 1 lb. of Trotter deck wax
  • Clothes iron (never to be used on clothing again)
  • Belt sander with 120 grit sanding belt
  • Vibrating sander with 250 and 400 grit paper
Pre-Existing condition: If your wood Trotter treadmill deck is worn down through the first ply, it cannot be re-waxed.
  1. Using a belt sander and 120-grit belt, gently sand in the same direction as the grain the glazed layer off the top of the deck until you have reached porous wood. If, while sanding, the first layer of ply has been sanded off, the deck can no longer be re-waxed
  2. Using a vibrating sander with 250-grit paper, sand the entire top surface of the deck until it is smooth and soft.
  3. After sanding with the 250-grit paper, continue sanding with 400-grit paper until completely smooth.
  4. Heat the clothes iron to its maximum temperature. Put a handful of Trotter deck wax on the center surface of the deck and place the preheated iron on top of it until the wax melts.
  5. Work the wax into the deck surface by pushing the melted wax across the deck with the iron. Add more wax as needed until the entire top surface of the deck is impregnated with wax.
  6. Apply just enough wax until the wood is saturated with wax.
Do NOT leave wax pooling on the surface of the deck.

Cybex 530t error 6


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH

Error 6 is a motor over voltage error. Motor voltage exceeded 200 VDC for 200 milliseconds. This can be caused by a worn deck and belt due to a lack of routine maintenance. AKA adding wax between your deck an belt. You might be able to wax your machine and make the error go away. More than likely a new deck and belt will be needed. Using the link below and your model and serial number, you can find the needed items. In worse case scenario, you may also need a new motor control board.

How do I remove crayon wax that melted in the sun onto my wrought iron deck table


There are a few methods. You can take ice cubes and place them on the crayon wax until it freezes. It can then be easily removed. You can also place a paper towel on the wax and use an Iron to heat the wax until it melts. The paper towel will absorb the wax. Then use a dryer sheet to remove anything left over.

I bought a second hand 9.21 Treadmill.The machine suddenly stops when I'm running on it. Sometimes after 30 minutes. Sometimes immediately. I had an electricien check the electrical network and that was...


Sounds like the wax lubrication has finally boiled off the belt the easiest way eliminate this problem is to rewax the deck. You may purchase this @ http://www.gympart.com/ or call them 1-800-496-7278 I would recommend what is call WAX BLAST they come in 3oz or 6oz bottles.
Now the fun part to apply this product you must first get the treadmill and walk on it for about 5min to heat up the deck, then stop the unit with your product go to upper third of the belt lift edge of the belt stick the nozzle between the belt and deck squeeze the bottle approx. amount 1 tbs of wax to the center then get back on the treadmill and walk for 10 min this is to heat up the wax so that belt will act like a wick to absorb wax! This should be done every 3 months or so. Their a catch if this does fix the problem you may be investing in a new belt and possible and new deck. Hope this take of it!!

Same problem


I would suggest that you reattach the two wire that their because the unit is pull too much current and that safety feature is to protect both motor and lower board from damage. If you have not been instructed by your local dealer about preventative maintenance Most Precor running are double sided, which means both surfaces are usable and are coated with wax. The easiest way without dismantling your unit is to follow this procedure:

Glue Gun Troubleshooting


1. Insert your wax stick into a standard sized glue gun. The fit may be tight. The more wax you use, the smoother the fit. 2. Use a second wax stick in the gun to help advance the first, if needed. 3. Heat the gun up to temperature. 4. Do a few test pulls on the gun to get a feel for the quantity of wax you would like to use with your seal. (Two good pulls of the trigger will produce a full seal for the larger sealing coins.) 5. Wait for 10-15 seconds, then press your seal firmly into the wax before it hardens. 6. Lift the seal slowly off the wax. If it comes away and the wax is still quite soft, wait a little longer before pressing the seal down.
