Spirit Treadmills and Parts Availability

I have been repairing exercise equipment for over 35 years now. It is true in many cases that a lot of web sites that review exercise equipment are either affiliate web sites or are owned by a specific manufacturer. I am not sure if either apply to this particular web site. My rant is the part about Spirit reviews and parts availbility. I have been working on Spirit machines for many years. I have never had to wait on any part for any length of time period. Now I see where you say that several parts come from overseas which is true. But they do carry a hefty inventory of replacement parts and have never failed my repairs to be in a timely manner. No, I am not an employee of Spirit and never have been. This is just my own personal experience with their equipment.

So though I truly do understand the parts are built overseas I do totally dissagree that there is a waiting time on parts. Just my personal opinion and experience with repairs on Spirit products. Oh one more thing. Their warranty does not just go to 1 to 3 years. They have many machines that carry a 10 year parts warranty FYI.

Thanks and happy exercising.

Spirit Parts

Agree Completely. I have been servicing fitness equipment since 1988 and have found the same result. I rarely have to wait for Spirit parts. Can they be getting mixed up with Free Spirit, the Sears name on several manufacturers treadmills?? I work in Canada and there is a fully parts stocked Spirit distributor that have the parts I need 98% of the time.

Hope this helps.
