Squeek in motor of 6110p treadmill

Treadmill had been standing unused in a basement for 3 years. Oiled belt and started treadmill. Appears to be stuck at a high elevation but the panel says 0 elevation. The big problem is a squeak in the electric motor that speeds up when the motor speeds up. Can this motor be oiled? Do you think it is the motor at all?

Dear Sir:
The motor you can be oiled . But see the next instruction.

RUN THE SOFTWARE CALIBRATION FOR Easy diagnose and troubleshooting , see the instruction under the Hood of Motor, and follow the step or user manuals. Inspect the 1) Potentiometer + gear of the same Pot ( lubricate very slight).

sincerely. God bless you.

The incline operation and the walking belt operation are independent of each other. The walking belt should run regardless of the incline operation.
Although I have never had a problem with the gears in the incline motor being defective, you may need the motor replaced.. Try an incline calibration.
With the safety key in place, press start to start the machine. Press incline up. While the numbers are changing, remove the safety key. Release the incline up button. Reinstall the key, the machine should calibrate . After calibration, retry the operation normally.
Because the circumstances here are unusual, I would next disassemble the right upright and inspect the wiring harness for damage. During assembly, it is easy to pinch the harness (usually at the bottom of the upright), damaging the wiring to the console. The console may work, the the information may not get to the motor control PCB. The machine may have worked for a period of time before the damage became apparent, the flexing and movement of the frame eventually will eat through the wiring causing a number of unusual symptoms.

The belt is dragging and sticking...

hi if the belt is dragging and slipping when your standing on top that means you need a new belt, not the one you are standing on. the belt that is attached to the motor. if you start the treadmill and dont step on it i bet the belt runs smoothly. not that expensive to repalce under £20.00. hope i have helped

Reebok 8050es treadmill walking belt has started slipping/skipping. It has been oiled and it is 2 years old.

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) above the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.If you still have slipping then the drive belt under the motor shroud can also cause this problem unplug unit remove shroud then plug unit in start it up observe the front roller to see if it stops if it does locate the tension adjusting bolt by the motor loosen motor mount and proceed adjusting until slipping has been eliminated

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift the edges of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.
