How do I tighten belt on health rider

Hi There,
Firstly take off the motor cover and check that the motor belt is not slipping when you use the treadmill. If it is not slipping turn the rear roller adjusting bolt 3/4 of a turn clockwise. Retest. If you have to turn it much more than another 1/2 a turn then the machine needs a tech to check over .

Control panel shocks

This is a common occurrence as we enter the dry season. Static electricity will build up as you walk/run on your machine. There are many factors which make the problem more or less evident - the type of walking belt and deck, design of the treadmill, type of walking shoes, etc.

Some treadmills have a grounding wire from the console to the frame of the treadmill as well as a grounding wire from the rear roller to the frame of the treadmill. Check to see if these are in place, or have a qualified technician check this.

One common solution is simply to add a humidifier to the room where the treadmill is located. Raising the humidity will greatly reduce the static shock problem

Should I buy a treadmill or an elliptical?

I suggest buying an elliptical machine because you can do alot more exercises with them and they take up little room. Treadmills take up a lot of room, use a lotof electricity and you can only run or walk on them.

The belt has slowly moved all the way over to the right and is rubbing up against the right side. How do I adjust the belt back to the middle of the treadmill? It is a Health Rider XL Soft Strider.

1-Error 2 keeps appearing on the screen 2-It

3 possible areas that can be causing the problem speed sensor , motor control Board ( MCB ) or the drive motor. Unplug unit remove motor shroud then plug in unit now on the MCB their should be L E D s lights should be on. One of the L E D s should speed on other P W M . Start your treadmill you see the PWM light flickering thus the upper console and cable connections are good now it will go back to ERROR 1. Check the connection that leads from the motor the board with a mutli-meter insert them in the motor connectors and start the unit their should be a D C voltage out if not the board is bad and need to be replaced. If not reset your treadmill then manually start pushing the running belt2_bing.gif now the speed light should be flickering if it does then the speed sensor is good if not flickering then replace sensor. If we have a good speed sensor then I would check the Drive Motor this done unplugging the unit the disconnect the two leads coming from the motor to MCB then by using a fully charge 18v drill battery connecting the leads to the motor should move it at approx; 1 mph if no belt movement you for the most part will have worn brushes or open windings in the motor. Also I check the belt and since the majority of the problems ( 75 to 85% of time)start with lack of maintenance ( lubrication)thus causing added expense to the consumer.
Here is a typical guide for maintenance their may be a slight variation from different manufacturers all in all the same.
NOTE: To prevent electrical shock, be certain the treadmill is turned off and unplugged from the electrical outlet before performing any cleaning or routine maintenance. TREADBELT LUBRICATION For average use of your treadmill, factory recommends you lubricate under the treadbelt once per year. For heavy use, which is more than 10 hours per week, factory recommendation is lubricating every six months. . LUBRICATION PROCEDURE: 1. Turn off and unplug treadmill. 2. Cut off the end of the tube of lubricant. 3. Holding the tube in one hand, insert the tube underneath the treadbelt halfway between front and back and halfway between right and left. 4. Squeeze the full contents of the tube onto the deck in a circular pattern in the center 1/3 of the deck. 5. Plug in and turn on treadmill, then walk normally on treadmill at 0.5 mph for five minutes. CLEANING DAILY: Perspiration should be wiped from the control console and treadmill surfaces after your workout. CLEANING WEEKLY: You should wipe down your treadmill once a week with a water dampened, soft cloth. Be careful not to get excessive moisture between the edge of the digital display panel and the console, as this might create an electrical hazard or cause the electronics to fail. IMPORTANT: DO NOT CLEAN OR WIPE THE TOP OF THE DECK UNDER THE CENTER OF THE RUNNING BELT. MONTHLY: Clean dust and dirt that might accumulate under and behind your treadmill once a month. Small rubber particles from the soles of walking shoes will accumulate alongside the belt and also behind the unit

Try putting the key in while holding the down incline button in. This resets the height mechanism. Repeat with the up incline button.
