I have a Horizon PTS8 treadmill. Yesterday, when I turned it

Customer Question

I have a Horizon PTS8 treadmill. Yesterday, when I turned it on it is making an unusual noise. The treadmill is about 15 years old. Everything is working as far as I can tell, it is just making a noise. Do you think it needs to be cleaned or something replaced?
JA: What's the exact make and model of the treadmill?
Customer: Don't know. Is there a label someplace to find a model number?
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Started yesterday for first time. I have done no troubleshooting.
JA: Anything else you want the Equipment Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Welcome to the site! I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help with your treadmill.

Where is the noise coming from? Also, can you describe it to me, please? What kind of maintenance has been done to it over the 15 years?
