Hi Tifanee,

Approximately how old is the treadmill?

Has it ever been serviced?

Are you looking to carry out the repairs yourself, or are you looking for a repairer in your area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
7 years old, never been serviced. I would repair it if it's possible if not then I will call a repair company

Could it be that my incline motor went out and needs replacing?

Hi Tifanee,

It may just need a general service, cleaning and greasing if some parts have seized.

The inline motor can be tested by a repair man if cleaning and greasing does not help.
