PROBLEMS

Is your equipment properly set up but you're still having an issue when using it? See all our FAQs here.
YOUR TREADMILL DOESN'T SWITCH ON

1. Check that the power cord is plugged into a wall socket in working condition (to check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or another electrical device).

2. Make sure the other end of the power cord is plugged into your treadmill.

3. Check that the main switch near the power cord is in position I.

4. Make sure the I/O switch is working correctly. If it doesn't switch on, you will need to change the fuse: https://youtu.be/Yhw70ctYuq0

5. Check that the safety key is pushed fully into the console.

The treadmill belt is slack:

=> Select the "Running belt tension" tab from the MAINTENANCE section.

 

 

YOUR TREADMILL IS MAKING A NOISE

1. Shoes:

=> The noise you can hear could be the sound of your shoes on the running belt. To check that the noise isn't coming from your shoes, please see the video below

 

2. The screws are loose:

 => Tighten all of the screws.

 

3. The running belt is wonky:

Running belt tension is too high:

SERVICING YOUR PRODUCT

It takes care of you, so you should do the same for it. Regular maintenance is necessary to preserve the performance of your equipment and extend its service life.

CENTRING THE RUNNING BELT

You will need the Allen key (BTR) that came with your treadmill:
 
 
1. Start your treadmill at a low speed (4 km/h).
 
       
2. Insert the key into the screw on the side where the running belt is off-centre.
 
       
3. Turn it a quarter turn clockwise (wait 30 seconds between each quarter turn) until the belt is back in the correct position.

 

HOW TO CHECK IF YOUR RUNNING BELT HAS THE PROPER TENSION

The tension on the WALK500's running belt should be set to 1.09 (+/- 0.03). This is the motor belt tension.

 

After checking the tension on the console:

If the figure is too low, you need to tighten the running belt. (Tightening is done by turning the roller's two rear wheels clockwise).

If the figure is too high, you need to loosen the running belt. (Loosening is done by turning the roller's two rear wheels anti-clockwise).

A half key turn = 0.03

For the setting: Select the "Running belt tension" tab in the MAINTENANCE section.

 

How to check the tension on the console:

1. Stand on the footrests.

2. With the safety key removed, press and hold the "START" and "STOP" buttons for three seconds.

3. "Start" will appear on the console. Press the "START" button and insert the safety key.

4. The treadmill will start at 5 km/h and display the running belt tension. (Make any adjustments if necessary).

5. Press the "STOP" button.

RUNNING BELT TENSION

The running belt is a wearing part that becomes loose over time. Re-tighten it as soon it begins to go slack (sliding sensation, jerky motion).

 

1&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 belt is properly tightened if you can lift the edges 2 to 3 cm on each side.

RUNNING DECK LUBRICATION

It's important to do this regularly (every 200 hours of use) to keep your treadmill working as long as possible.
 
 
1 & 2. Simply spray twice underneath the running belt on the right and on the left.
 
 
3. Then set your treadmill off at 5 km/h for 5 minutes, without standing on it.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

1. Check the motor and the drive belt every 600 hours of use or every 3600 km*
2. Replace the running belt every 500 hours of use or every 3000 km*
3. Replace the running deck every 700 hours of use or every 4200 km*
4. Replace the rollers every 600 hours of use or after 3600 km*
