Weslo Cadence Treadmill C44 – 3 Easy Do-It-Yourself Treadmill Repair

Sooner or later your Weslo Cadence Treadmill C44 will need repair.  You’ll want to be able to fix it quickly and without having to spend a lot of money.  I’m going to give you 3 easy tips to help you diagnose, solve and repair your Weslo cadence treadmill C44.  I’ll also give you some great advice to avoid future problems with your treadmill.

Your Treadmill is as Good as its Warranty

At some point, all treadmills, after the expiration of the warranty period require replacement and repair so that it keeps functioning well.  That’s why your treadmill is only as good as its warranty. Hopefully you’ve kept your manufacturer’s guide – as the Weslo Cadence C44 warranty has a short life span.  But that’s what you get when you buy an inexpensive treadmill. You shouldn’t worry though – just yet. I’m going to give you some do-it-yourself tips for fixing your treadmill.

Tell Tale Signs of Trouble in Treadmill Paradise

Do you smell something burning?  Is that smell coming from your treadmill?  A burning smell means there is something wrong with your motor.  Your motor is most likely overheated due to some type of friction. The first thing to do is unplug the treadmill.  Open the deck.  Once you have opened the deck and readjusted the belt, your problem will have been solved.

If that doesn’t work, you have 2 options:

1) Replace the motor (for $125) or

2) Buy another treadmill.  This time, a more expensive one.

Replacing the motor yourself is very easy.  Make sure you read the manufacturer’s manual and make sure you purchase the correct replacement motor. Now if your treadmill is a cheapo piece of junk it may implode and cook itself to death. In that case, you’ll have to purchase a totally new one.

Treadmill Is On Steroids?

If your treadmill gets temperamental, meaning it vascillates between speeds without you touching the controls, dusty speed sensors are usually the cause of vascillation between speeds.  That’s also an extremely easy problem to solve.  Dusting off your treadmill regularly, opening it up and dusting inside of it will help keep dust at bay.

Your Treadmill Takes Coffee Breaks

If your treadmill takes coffee breaks every time you get on it, that totally defeats the purpose.  Do you agree?  Okay.  Nine out of ten that means your belt is worn or old.  If it is a brand new treadmill, the manufacturer is obligated to replace it.  But you must make sure your warranty covers it.  Still, it’s an easy problem to fix. 

Always refer to your owner’s manual before doing any repair work.  Remember to always unplug your machine first.  Go under the hood that’s on the deck with a ratchet or screwdriver.  Once it’s opened, loosen the belt with your screw driver and slip it off gently.  Replace it with a new belt the same way you took it off – just do it backwards.  This will make more sense when you read your owner’s manual.

Importance of Treadmill Maintenance

Your treadmill needs to be serviced regularly if you hope to have it around for a long time.   If you can’t afford to have it serviced or you don’t have time, then it’s critical for you to perform service on your own.  Remember, the most important part of your Weslo Cadence treadmill C44 are the motor, the deck and the belt. Take good care of them.
