The most common cause of belt slippage is lack of lubrication. Most treadmill belts use lubrication on the underside of the
belt to reduce friction between the belt and the platform. This helps
the treadmill glide along smoothly under the weight of a person. If your belt is lacking
in lubrication, it can catch on the treadmill platform. Apply lubrication every few
months to the underside of the belt to prevent this from occurring.
A petroleum or silicone based lubricant is recommended, and most easily applied in a spray can. Simply lift up the belt about midway along the platform and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath from about the middle of the platform width to the closest edge. Repeat from the other side. Apply lubricant sparingly...it can be messy.
Next, turn on the treadmill and let it run for a minute, then check if the belt still sticks. A little more lubricant may be necessary.
PROBLEM: The walking belt is off-center or slips when walked on SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn the left idler roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. If the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the left idler roller bolt counterclockwise 1/2 of a turn. Then,plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centered.
it is an indicator that the belt needs lubricating. turn the power off, and lift up one side of the belt and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath the belt, onto the running board. repeat this step on the other side. turn the treadmill on and run it for a few minutes to spread the lubricant. the oil light should now go off.
this should be repeated every 5-6 months to keep the board lubricated and to reduce friction between the belt and board and will lengthen the life of your treadmill.
I just had the same thing happen to me with the same treadmill. I called Reebok and they had me remove the motor hood. Sure enough, the bolts holding the motor had completely sheared off and the motor was lying loose in the bottom of the treadmill. They are sending a new motor and bolts and a technician to install them. They said it was probably dropped hard during shipping.
