What happens if you don't lubricate a treadmill?

Answered

If you don’t lubricate your treadmill, you risk your treadmill getting damaged. For example, you could wear out your belt, deck and drive motor. Skipping the lubrication will put more stress on your treadmill and interfere with its performance. And too much stress on your machine could also lead to expensive repairs in the future.
