Hi,
If it was running in the proper direction before suddenly changing the direction then the motor control board is faulty. If it was happened after some service inside then the connection of the motor is reversed unknowingly. If so reverse the connection of the motor. As its a DC motor it will change the direction when the applied DC voltage reversed.

Try adjusting the tension on the running belt. This video is the rear roller replacement on a Life Fitness 95TI, but includes the belt adjustment. This is a different machine than yours, but it is the same concept.

On my Sears ProForm 730 treadmill, I cannot make the belt move to the right (it is rubbing on the left side) by turning the left-side back belt screw clockwise (in any amount). The belt is walking back...


The belt does not need to be replaced more than likely. The problem is probably because that adjustment bolt is stripped out causing it loosen and keeping it over on that side. ProForm sells star washers that help them stay steady and not slip out. I would call them and ask for a couple of star washers and a new adjustment bolt for that left side.

The treadmill keeps cutting out and slowing down during use.


SOUND LIKE A LUBRICATION ISSUE DEPENDING ON THE MANUFACTURER NOW A DAYS SYN SILICON IS USED ON MOST PHENOLIC DECKS IF NO MAINTENANCE HAS BEEN DONE I WOULD ALSO CHECK THE FOR UNEVEN SURFACE AND THE BELT MAYBE TO WORN AND THE LUBRICATE WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE , BUT ITS CHEAPER TO TRY LUBE THAN NEW BELT AND DECK. GO TO gymparts.com part# TM001 or call them @ 1-800-496-7278

Treadmill powers up begins to turn belt then shuts down


Did the shop only do a continuity check or a real load test with amp check also? Motors can look good and run with no load but fail under load.
