My proform 830 qt treadmill circuit keeps flipping off--the little switch next to the cut-off switch near where the power cord enters the machine. At first it would run about an hour, then flip and shut the machine off. Now this happens after 20 minutes or so. I checked to see if the belt is running freely, there seems to be nothing obstructing its free movement. I cleaned the motor's armatures, there was some carbon build-up but nothing out of the ordinary. I'm hoping the motor is not going out since that is around $170, it seems to run fine without overheating. We've had it about 8 years but it has only been used about 1 year (stored for many years). Thanks, Mike

The deck needs to be lubricated. The lubricant can be purchase @ gympart.com. 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
Check out treadmilldoc.com The very best free information and help you can get to fix your treadmill yourself. I would say off hand the belt needs lubed (at least once a year) with special lube. Do not use ordinary household lubricants. Or the breaker switch is bad. About $8 to 15$. It's tripping for a reason, clean and lube and then go from there.
when the belt is stopped you should be check the deck if this it´s worm or the walking belt, because a probable cause is lack of lubrication,
In addition should send the engine to revision, because according to what your gross probably already there are some Diode Rectifier damaged,
You must know that the cause that generates this problem stems from the walking belt and the table or deck
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.
