Never thought I'd outlive a piece of exercise equipment.


My 14 year old PaceMaster Bronze seems to be acting up.¬* Noisy and
doesn't run as fast as it used to. I tried tightening the big belt
that you walk on and the drive belt from the 3hp motor to the shafr
but didn't seem to make any difference.¬* Both PaceMaster and the
local exercise equipment shop I bought it from have gone belly up.
I might ask at another store that sells higher end equipment for
advice.



Did you lube the belt on the inside where it runs over the rollers? That
helps preserve the belt and probably the motor. Bought the new one from
the same company where we bought the old one. They can still scrounge up
new parts for the old machines, but they are pricey. Probably always
were pricey.



Didn't lube anything. Think they said the belt was permently
lubricated...I only have about 1300 miles on it..barely broken in.


¬*Whoa, take it easy, that's 1-1/4 miles a week!



I sorta question the "permanently lubricated" belt. I've had two
treadmills over the years. The belt *motors* are permanently
lubricated but it was recommended on both that the underside
of the belt that slides along the treadmill platform be
lubricated occasionally using a device that you applied
special lubricant to, positioned at the end of the treadmill
belt and was applied with the belt slowly running.

In fact, the newer of the two treadmills came with the device.
Looked like this:

I just go to 24 hour fitness and they take care of any equipment issues.
