Proform 755cs shuts down during exercise.

When we are using it, the belt just stops. Nothing else turns off and most of the time it will start right back up but not at the level of speed it was at when it quit. It starts back at the lowest level. What do we need to do to fix it?

    I have the same problem and was thinking it was my outlet and now i've just discovered the prons on the threadmill cord get so hot you can't touch it.

    Im having the same problem. I read a little somewhere that you are not suppose to spray any silicon spray or lubricants because it's bad for the belt. I'm guilty! I sprayed some silicon spray but I really don't think it was that so much. I'm looking at maybe changing the belt. $100.00 for the belt alone.

    Check the tension as well. It suppossed to have about 3-4 inches of space on both sides near the center of the belt when lifted.

    This sucks! It started doing this after I moved into a new house and it sat around with out use for a year or two. =)

Proform crosswalk 395 keeps tripping circuit breakers

If it's happening as soon as you press start then you need a controller and a walking belt. If it's doing it after a few minutes of use then you need to replace your walking belt.

Proform tredmill---stops after a couple of steps--will start back up after getting off---motor control board?

Inspect the walking board and belt first.Feel the tecture at the outer edge of the belt, then feel the center. If it feel fuzzy, the walking belt is worn.
Check the walking board for damage, deep scratches, excessive friction will cause an over current shutdown of the controller.
If the walking belt and board are good, lubricate the walking board and belt and try again.
Does the motor spark allot when running?? This will also cause over current.
Have you tightened the belt (too tight??)
After covering these suggestions, if the same problem is apparent, change the motor controller..

Belt runs with hesitation. stops during rotation and starts again. like it's slipping

If it does this while you are exercising it is one of two problems. First make sure that the walk belt is adjusted correctly( you should be able to pick up the outer edge of belt about 1.5 inches), if the belt is tight enough, then remove the front cover ( 3 screws at fron and 2 or 3 under), start the treadmill with cover off and watch as you walk, see if the drive belt(small one going from motor to front roller),is still turning after you try to STOP the walk belt with your feet. If the drive belt still turns, see if the front roller stops but the drive pully (other end of drive belt)still turns. If so you need a front drive roller assy. Od if the belt(drive) quits while the motor stays running, adjust the motor, or replace the drive belt.

My Proform XP 650e Treadmill starts and suddenly stops. The belt turns real fast then it suddenly shuts down like the power was turned off.

This condition is when the treadmill goes to full speed as soon as you power up the treadmill. Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller.

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.

Treadmill stops running

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 ( 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.
