Here we look at treadmills themselves. How to repair and maintain them. The features they have and how to make one work properly and better than it has before. We'll also compare treadmills to other fitness equipment to see which ones are the best. They cost a lot so here we'll look at ways of making them last and what you can do if they develop any problems.
A treadmill requires a lot of maintenance so here we'll tell you how to maintain it. We'll also tell you more technical information like how to open the motor cover and which type of lubricant you should use. These are all important aspects when considering a treadmill in the first place and how to make sure it lasts for you and your family.
Treadmills are like major appliances so you need to take care if you notice something wrong especially a burning smell. Further maintenance articles can be found here including cleaning the belt, how to test a motor and resetting the treadmill. A treadmill needs to last a long time and following some of the help we've provided here can make that happen.
A lot of the help articles here are about maintenance and that is because a treadmill costs so much and can last so long if looked after. We also look at whether you should buy a treadmill desk and the calorie counters on these machines and if they are accurate. We have a guide to treadmills motors and if you should pay for the assembly when they are in your home.

I'm Simon Gould. I've been around treadmills my whole life. From running on them at an early age to working in treadmill dept's of national stores. I've run outside and I've run on treadmills and I prefer running on treadmills. I still run on one nearly every day and love it.
