The console just has lines instead of zeros. Tries unplugging, turning on/off, pressing and holding the stop button for 3 seconds. But the lines just stay there and the treadmill doesn’t start.

The “Lube Belt” keeps coming on on my treadmilll. I lube it and about ten miles later it comes on again. I have lubed it 3 times and still keeps coming on so i believe something else is wrong. Perhaps the belt is improperly adjusted? Looking for suggestions
