Stop Your Treadmill from Beeping

Are the beeps from your treadmill annoying? Want to run while the kids are in bed? Watch this video to see how to quiet your treadmill.

I'll show you four (well, technically five) different ways to do it:

1. Muffle the sound, if you just find it too loud.
2. Disable the sound entirely
3. Add a switch to turn the sound on and off
4. Add a volume knob

The 5th option, which is what I do in the video, combines 3 and 4. Options 1 and 2 require no special tools, but doing option 2 without a soldering iron is not recommended.

Here are wiring diagrams for the other options, with links to where you can buy what you need:

Switch
Here is a push on / push off (aka self-locking) switch: https://goo.gl/c4j1r1

Volume knob
You'll need a 20kΩ potentiometer (labelled as B20K), which you can buy here: https://goo.gl/XxgVBD

Volume knob with switch
For this you'll need a 10kΩ (or more) potentiometer with combined switch: https://goo.gl/2WG87b
