Horizon Treadmills - Keeping Your Treadmill in Shape!


Horizon treadmills are well built and sturdy, and their durability is mentioned positively in Horizon treadmills ratings. It is inevitable, however, that any piece of fitness equipment will require maintenance at some point or another. And it is, in fact, this regular maintenance that will keep your Horizon treadmill running at its peak capacity for longer.

Maintaining your Horizon Fitness or Horizon Elite treadmill will reduce the need for any repairs down the line, so it is a good idea to incorporate regular checks of your treadmill into your workout routine.

Horizon Fitness treadmills are built to very high specifications, so it is unlikely that these checks will necessitate much action, but it is important to catch any potential problems at an early stage. This small amount of home maintenance can ensure the prolonged life of your treadmill, and reduce the likelihood that you might need to purchase replacement parts later on.

With careful maintenance, it is possible to avoid having to replace parts of your treadmill too soon. Special treadmill maintenance kits are available to help keep your treadmill in peak condition, but you can just as easily use a soft cotton cloth and a non-abrasive, non-acid based cleaner to keep your treadmill in full working order. As debris can build up underneath the running belt, it is important to check this area regularly, and to wipe it down if necessary - this is a simple procedure than can prolong the life of your belt and ensure its continued safe and effective performance. Never spray your cleaning fluid directly onto the equipment however, as this can damage sensitive parts of your treadmill - instead, spray a small amount on your cloth. Treadmill mats are always a good investment - they can help prevent the uptake of debris into your treadmill belt or motor, and they can help reduce treadmill noise too. It will be very much appreciated by your downstairs neighbour! Be sure to regularly check that your treadmill belt is properly positioned on the treadmill deck too - loose or ill-fitting belts can cause accidents.

Check the safety features on your Horizon treadmill on a regular basis - these are not something that you can afford to have fail on you in an emergency situation. Check your emergency stop feature and do not use your treadmill if it is faulty - your fitness is important, but safety must always be your primary concern.

Horizon Fitness treadmills come with good warranties, but you need to 'activate' them within thirty days of your original purchase. You can activate your warranty by mail or by logging on to the Horizon Fitness website. Horizon also offer great customer support - their contact details are also available on their website. If you are in any doubt about the safety of any of your Horizon treadmill's component parts, contact the company immediately. The customer tech support department ask that before you call, you have beside you the Horizon Fitness model number, the serial number, and a brief description of the problem you are encountering.

Horizon also offer useful troubleshooting advice on their website, so check their frequently asked questions if there is a problem with your treadmill - you might find a quick and easy solution with just a click of your mouse.

Horizon Treadmills should supply replacement parts, such as the running belt, free of charge if your machine is still under warranty. Should your Horizon treadmill require a part after the expiration of your warranty, the manufacturer will be able to provide the part for you for a fee. Be sure to quote the serial number of your treadmill when contacting Horizon for a replacement part, and ask for it to be fitted by an expert if necessary - Horizon offer 'in home' service. The proper fitting of any repair part to your treadmill is absolutely essential to ensure the continued safe use of your fitness equipment.

With some regular maintenance you will hopefully never have any need to contact Horizon Treadmills for assistance with any aspect of their treadmills, but if you do, you can be sure that you will dealt with in a friendly and helpful manner.
