Is your equipment properly set up but you're still having an issue when using it? See all our FAQs here.

The console does not turn on

Faulty connection to the treadmill:

=> Then check that the safety key is in.

=> Check the circuit breaker and press it if it has been tripped.

The treadmill slows down when you step onto it

The treadmill belt is slack:

=> Select the "RUNNING BELT TENSION" tab in the MAINTENANCE section.



Your treadmill is making a noise

The screws are loose:

 => Tighten all of the screws.


The running belt is wonky:

=> Click on the "CENTRING THE RUNNING BELT" tab in the MAINTENANCE section.


The running belt is not lubricated:

=> Click on the "RUNNING BELT LUBRICATION" tab in the MAINTENANCE section.

The motor of the treadmill slows down or stops irregularly while the console stays switched on

Running belt tension is too high:

 => Check the running belt tension so that the movement of the belt between the deck and belt is about 3 centimetres at the middle of the deck.

 => If this is not the case, turn the two hex screws at the rear of the treadmill on each side of the roller and then loosen the running belt. 

Your console is not showing the right distance units

The treadmill incline is not working or is locked

If the treadmill has not had the time to calibrate the incline:

=> Switch the treadmill off, switch it back on again and insert the safety key.

=> Allow the calibration cycle to run its course. The treadmill will then lift up to its highest point before moving back down to its lowest. This process can take a few minutes. 


Force the treadmill to calibrate:

1. Press the Stop and Speed + buttons at the same time.

2. Insert the safety key while continuing to hold the buttons down.

3. Press the Stop button once. The info will appear on the screen. 

4. Press the Incline + button to start the calibration cycle.                              

The treadmill doesn't start, the motor is making a noise and there are two flashing lights on the console

The treadmill is in calibration mode:

=> Wait two to three minutes as the treadmill moves up and then down. The console will come on after the calibration cycle has finished.

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.

Care and maintenance are important for the longevity of your equipment. Please find further maintenance instructions here.

Adjusting the position of the running belt (centring)

1. Locate the coloured indicators at the back of your treadmill. If they appear red, the band needs to be re-centred. This will enable you to protect the running belt and prevent the machine from stopping when you aren't expecting it to.

2. Turn your treadmill to 4 km/h (2.5 mph) and stand at the back of the machine.

3. If the belt has shifted towards the left: Turn the left adjustment screw through half a rotation, in a clockwise direction.

4. If the belt has shifted towards the right: Turn the right adjustment screw through half a rotation, in a clockwise direction.

5. Leave your treadmill running for the time it takes for the belt to move across (1 to 2 minutes) and repeat the operation if necessary.

Make sure, however, that you do not over-stretch the belt.

Adjusting the tension in the running belt

The running belt will be subjected to wear and tear and become less taut over time. Be sure to tighten it as soon as it starts to slip (a skidding sensation, with jerky changes of speed).


1&2. Turn the 2 adjustment screws through half a rotation, in a clockwise direction. Repeat this step if necessary but make sure you don't over-stretch the belt.

3. The belt is correctly stretched if you can lift the edges 3 to 5 cm on each side.

Lubricating the running belt

It is imperative that you keep your treadmill well-lubricated, so as to limit the amount of friction between the running belt and the deck. No lubrication is necessary if traces of silicone are present on the inner side of the running belt or on the deck (and the surface is damp and slightly greasy).

If the belt and the deck are dry:


1. Switch off your treadmill and unplug it.


2. Lift up the sides of the running belt and coat the inner surface with silicone.*


3. Plug your treadmill in again.


4. Make the belt rotate at a speed of 4 km/h (2.5 mph), with no-one on it, for 10 to 20 seconds.


5. Your treadmill is ready for use!


* A single lubrication corresponds to a dose of between 5 and 10 ml of silicone.

Please note that if you use too much silicone, you could harm the proper functioning of your treadmill (risk of skidding).

When buying lubricants, consult your local DECATHLON store or go to


Regular maintenance is necessary to maintain the performance of the machine and to extend the life of the product.

The following can help reduce treadmill noise:


        1. Tighten the screws and bolts once a month.

        2. Lubricate the running belt after 200 hours of use.

        3. Place a suitable floor mat (such as the Domyos Training Mat) under your treadmill.





        1. Switch off and then unplug the treadmill.

        2. Apply a small amound of mild, multi-purpose cleaner, using a 100% cotton cloth. Do not spray directly onto the walking belt and do not use acid or ammonia-based cleaning products.

        3. Wipe the console and screens.

        4. Remove any dust and grime from the hand rails, uprights, foot rails, frame and motor hood. In addition, wipe the deck along the sides of the walking belt. Do not wipe under the walking belt.
