Sounds like it's not dead, since the motor does run. More like it needs repair/adjusting. Have you tried googling the problem? My sister (who is NOT mechanically inclined) googled a few problems she had with her car, and ended up fixing it herself with youtube videos, an Amazon order for parts, and a trip to her local parts store. Livestrong.com has a bunch of info on treadmills & their problems, too.
At any rate-- are there stairs in your building? You could do them, for exercise. There are also a ton of videos here on Spark, and loads of things on youtube as well. Got any exercise DVD's? A library nearby, where you could check a few out?
