Purchased this treadmill in April 2006 for about $700. Only used it about twice per week in the wintertime, when it was too cold outside to jog or bicycle. In October 2008, after it had sat idle unplugged since April, turned it on and it made a loud constant beeping noise and would no longer function. Contacted customer support and they said it sounded like the display was frozen. Unfortunately, the warranty on electronic parts was expired and would cost more than was worth to repair, so wheeled it out for trash pickup. Is it worth $700 to buy a treadmill that will only last a little more than 2 years? Not in my opinion. My next treadmill will be purchased from another manufacturer. Horizon Fitness...never again!

    I have been using this treadmill for about 3 months, walking approximately 60 to 90 minutes a day in my home. In the last couple of days the belt is starting to bulge in the center of the tread, and i don't know what to do to get it back flat as it should be. Can you help me with this problem?
