Sounds like either the belt is loose or the belt/deck need to be lubed.
To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns.
I need to know what the brand and model is to be able to tell you how to lube the treadmill.

When on treadmill there is a "studder"


Check if the running belt is lubricated. You can't run an engine without oil. So, spray a good quality silicone lubricant on the base of the running belt. It is best if you spray on a lint free cloth just enough to make a wet patch. Do it outside so that no spray residue lands on the floor and becomes slippery or lands on the carpet and stains it, then return inside and lift the treadmill running belt and soak or smear the base with the wet patch of the cloth and run for a full minute. Then lift the belt again and give it another swipe on the entire base, then feel the base with your fingers or hand to see if it feels wet and smooth. Run the treadmill for another minute at slow speed, otherwise the liquid can fly and splatter on wall or floor. If it still hasn't solved the problem, then it must be the motor brushes, or it may be set to run slow and fast according to the running settings on the console. Mine does the same thing if it is programmed to do 1 minute slow and one minute a bit faster. Good luck.

Trotter 525 giving error no speed instructions and stopping after 20 or 30 minutes


Error 1 is a no speed signal at startup error. Is this happening with or without belt movement? If with movement, check for a voltage spike of around 130 VDC. This can be caused by a faulty SCR or worn motor brushes.

My Powerfirst T960 stopped twice while running. Display stays on (no error message) but backlight turns off. Also, was speeding up/slowing down while running


1)LUBE THE DECK BELT, this problem is by lack of maintenance schedule, maybe you have deck belt worn. This produce enough friction between deck vs deck belt and shut down the machine for protect the electonic system.

2) Lube the rollers bearing in according with the maintenance schedule.

3) Test the voltage input motor, if there are the motor need repair.

4) Test the output voltage board, for the input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board si faulty.

5) RUN the software calibration for diagnose, troubleshooting and fix it.

My treadmill work fine when i turn it on but when i step on it the blet. slows down to crawl.


What make/model is the treadmill? What speed does this behavior occur? Does the walking belt slip, while the motor and rollers continue to turn? If the walking belt is slipping then the motor belt needs to be tightened. If the walking belt slows with your weight on it, does this happen at 1-3 mph and still occur at 4-5 mph? It could be your body weight causing it to slowdown, try to increase the speed to 4 or 5 and see if it still happens. If so, is the treadmill rated for your body weight? Please be more specific.

The treadmill stops after about 20 minutes or so. I push the fuse back in, and then I can start it again. It shuts off again after 15 - 20 minutes or less. Can I replace the fuse, or what is the...


try lubricating the running belt. Any decent sized fitness store should have a lubrication kit. Also, make sure the machine is plugged into a dedicated circuit. Meaning, there are no other devices on the same circuit as the treadmill. Not just the same outlet, but the entire circuit of the room you have the treadmill in. You also want to make sure it's not on any extension cords. Plug it into a surge protector (power bar with a cord less than 6') and then directly into the wall. Those are the 3 main culprits why treadmills shut down after a short period of time.

Belt problem


f the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts clockwise,1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Do you need to oil anyting on the weslo treadmill


Weslo treadmills generally are not worth fixing, it's usually cheaper to buy a new one and it will just break again anyway.

Sorry to be so blunt, but it is true.

I recommend a better treadmill, they break less often and when they do, they are worth fixing.

Yes, you should lubricatethe belt twice a year, not oil, but silicone. And you probably need a new drive belt as well.
