Most of the parts that you will need to get assembled are outlined in the image below from the user manual
Pro Fitness T3000 Treadmill Deck Lubrication
When you receive the treadmill, it is already pre-lubricated and you should check it every 2 months by lifting the sides of the running belt to see if traces of silicone spray is present or absent. You should only apply 100% silicone lubricant oil for the running deck and then spray each side for 4 seconds approximately 15cm from the running deck surface. Allow it then to settle for 1 minute before you start it or start running on it to allow it to spread naturally.
Fixings/Fittings for Assembly
When it comes to fittings on the assembly, the type of fitting you will be working on will be the sunk bolts, Allen bolts screws, washers and Allen keys. You won’t need any further tools for the assembly and all of the fittings involved are outlined in the image below.
You need to make sure the treadmill is turned off prior to cleaning and make sure not to apply any liquids to the digital LCD screen where you should only use a lightly dampened cloth. Remove sweat and dust residues with a damp cloth after each use and avoid using any chemical solvents. It is recommended to add a mat underneath the treadmill to trap any unwanted dirt or shoe debris.
Pro Fitness T3000 Treadmill Error Codes
One thing you should know about in advance is the potential error codes that may appear on the digital screen such as the ones outlined in the image below. For example, E00 means the safety key is not in the right position, E01 means there is no signal from the console and E02 means there is a problem with the motor communication.
In addition, E05 means there is an over current protector and this can be solved by restarting the treadmill or replacing the motor. All the proposed solutions to these errors are also outlined in the image below…
