SOURCE: Proform 515s treadmill motor won't start

If the colse buttons make a chirping noise when you push them the console should be Ok. If there is no chirping noise with the push it is a bad console. If everything but the speed works it will probably be your motor controller that is bad.

SOURCE: My Proform 650v treadmill stop when running after couple of miles

Most likely a bad drive belt. Take the cover off the motor area. If you see black dust near the left side of the motor, replace the drive belt.

SOURCE: Proform 740CS runs okay but the incline does not

ProForm Treadmills have a reset procedure for the incline function. With the key inserted in the console, activate the incline; while the incline is changing, remove the key. Wait 30 seconds, then replace the key. The incline should to maximum, then to minimum, resetting its limits. It worked for mine just 10 minutes ago; the procedure is in the manual if you have it. Good luck!

I have a ProForm 400 CT. It runs OK, but it just started making a rattling noise.It is intermitant.

Try to lubricate the running belt. Also check the Running belt adjustment.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Choose treadmill articles to know how to Lubricate and adjust the running belt. Almost all the treadmill uses the same procedure

Tap tap tap noise when the belt turns on. consistent.

can you determine where the noise is coming from . under the front hood or back. if you can remove the hood and look at the drive belt for fraying . also look at walking belt for fraying. any loose piece will hit something and make noise with every revolution

What size motor and how loud is the treadmill?

The motor of the Proform Power 1080 is 3.25 horse power. It sounds like a lot but it's not very loud. I can't tell you specifically how loud it is but I run on mine every day and my son sleeps in the room next to me. He has never been woken up from the noise.

Proform 400GI Treadmill making a very loud noise, which is worse when using speeds between 2.7 and 3.1, noise is so loud can't hear tv when turned up to full volume. It makes the noise without anyone...

This definitely sounds like the drive motor. One way to check is to remove the drive belt and run the motor without the walk belt connected. Obviously if you still have the noise it will be a motor issue. If not then it will be one of the 2 rollers. Good Luck! Tim
