How to lubricate a running deck:
Step 1 - Safety first. Make sure that your treadmill is switched off and unplugged from the wall.
Step 2 - Access the Deck. You'll need access to the treadmill running deck. This is the smooth bit of wood under the running mat. If it’s not possible to simply lift the edge of the mat because it’s too tight, you may have to loosen the rollers. This is a fairly simple process which you can do by following the instructions in your treadmill manual. Once you have some slack, you're ready to oil the deck.
Step 3 - Applying the lubricant can be a little fiddly. Firstly, determine your strike zone on the running mat. You'll want to apply oil on the deck under where your feet repeatedly impact the mat. Once you've lifted the mat with one hand, apply an even spread of 1 application (5ml) of silicone oil onto the middle of the running deck.
Step 4 - Lower the treadmill mat and you're done. If you need to re-tighten the treadmill roller screws, do so, making sure they're secure and that you’re following the instructions from your treadmill manual.
Step 5 - Plug the treadmill back in and turn the power on. Walk on your treadmill at a speed of 3-5kph for roughly five minutes. This will ensure the oil spreads evenly across the deck surface.
