How To Re-Wax a Wood Deck for a Trotter Treadmill

Following are instructions on how to re-wax a wood deck for a Trotter treadmill and a list of materials needed for this procedure

Materials Needed for Re-Wax

  • 1 lb. of Trotter deck wax
  • Clothes iron (never to be used on clothing again)
  • Belt sander with 120 grit sanding belt
  • Vibrating sander with 250 and 400 grit paper
Pre-Existing condition: If your wood Trotter treadmill deck is worn down through the first ply, it cannot be re-waxed.
  1. Using a belt sander and 120-grit belt, gently sand in the same direction as the grain the glazed layer off the top of the deck until you have reached porous wood. If, while sanding, the first layer of ply has been sanded off, the deck can no longer be re-waxed
  2. Using a vibrating sander with 250-grit paper, sand the entire top surface of the deck until it is smooth and soft.
  3. After sanding with the 250-grit paper, continue sanding with 400-grit paper until completely smooth.
  4. Heat the clothes iron to its maximum temperature. Put a handful of Trotter deck wax on the center surface of the deck and place the preheated iron on top of it until the wax melts.
  5. Work the wax into the deck surface by pushing the melted wax across the deck with the iron. Add more wax as needed until the entire top surface of the deck is impregnated with wax.
  6. Apply just enough wax until the wood is saturated with wax.
Do NOT leave wax pooling on the surface of the deck.

Precor c965i won't maintain speed the more weight on it

weel you must read the specification of your model, what is the maximun weight that is acceptable. However you must LUBE the deck belt with silicones or wax , read your owner manual for this, and execute inmediately.

God bless you

Left side rollers are releasing excess oil.. getting oil shooting out onto carpet.

On that left side end cap has a liquid wax hose assembly with nozzle on/off switch, this is used to refill the wax bladder underneath the running deck for lubricating the running belt itself. their are 2 screws that hold the end cap you will see the nozzle make sure its turned off make sure hose connections are snug. If any cracks in hose replace accordingly.

Treadmill wont run its saying waxer empty and notify maintainence

Does this treadmill have a wax system ? If it does it will have side access panels on the side just above the rear leveler. The picture that shows here does not but need to be sure it does not really need wax.
If it does not have a waxer- enter maintenance settings on display console,I do not have one in front of me but I believe you hold pause button down and press clear twice. This should bring up maintenance settings.
Scroll using up down arrow untill you see replace wax bag or something to that effect. select [enter ] to save. press clear clear to restart.
