Treadmill: Walking belt slows down

The walking belt will slow down when there's a lack of belt lubricant on the platform. The belt lubricant reduces the friction between the bottom of the walking belt and the platform as your walking. View the owner's manual for the specific type of belt lubricant to use on your model treadmill.

These repairs may help solve your Treadmill problem:

Replace the walking belt
