Question about Exercise & Fitness
We just acquired a Pro-Form ESP6 treadmill and it stops running after 5-15 seconds. Any ideas? Thanx, John.
I had simillar problem. I have proform 830 QT. My trademill stops after 10 minutes of work out. Everything shuts down and the circuit breaker pops out.
Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.
Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.
Back ground:- Contact proform customer service at 1-888-533-1333 (http://www.iconservice.com/proform/faq_tread.html) and buy the treadmil cleaning kit or lubricant kit which comes with a wand for easy application. It may cost you 35 dollars including shipping. If you need to fix your treadmil right away, use NAPA silicon spray 8300. Proform actually tells do not use it as it may damage your belt. However the specialst who came to fix my treadmill just sprayed it and collected 100 dollars. When I called proform they told me lubricating will fix it and its my mistake to not trust them. I guess they knew exactly what they were saying.

If you don't have the manual, see if the proform website has a PDF version available for download. They seem to have a lot of past models available. On our system (ProForm T10.0, PFTL0505.0) an E2 error meant the belt speed (according to the sensor) was too slow. The treadmill should come up to the selected speed within 7 seconds or this error is triggered.
Icon service turned out to be knowledgable and fair, although they can be hard to get ahold of on the phone. If you hold too long, then you are given a chance to enter your phone number. I had to contact them several times, and they did call me back each time I left my number.
Unfortunately several things can cause the belt not to run or not run well, so start with the easiest to fix items first like lubrication and tension adjustment (get a manual from the website if you don't have one--it covers this adjustment). Maybe clean the speed sensor wheel with compressed air or a q-tip (our model had a slotted wheel on the drive shaft which spins through an LED light detector).
If the speed is off, try calibrating the treadmill. Icon service can tell you how to do it (it's not in the manual).

Apply Paraffin wax.....under the belt and adjust tension if needed; Just make sure this is what is recommended. It is what i use.

If it stops with no one on the belt, it sounds like the sensor is unplugged or not working. It is also possible that one of the other electrical connections that carry data is damaged or not plugged in properly.
