SOURCE: My nordic track treadmill's walking belt stops

Unplug the unit remove the motor shroud inspect the drive belt if the rubber feel slick then my recommendation is to replace the drive belt. Adjusting the drive belt may take care of the problem if you do not need to adjust it too tight. If you choose to do the adjusting and feel you have adjusted the running belt thinking it would resolve the slipping, then back the tension down until it the running belt is slipping then adjust until the slippage is resolved.

B) Walking Belt/Motor Belt too Tight:

If you have adjusted the walking belt or motor belt recently, check for this problem. When the belts start slipping, some people just crank

down the belts and on treadmills, tighter is not necessarily better. The tighter the belts, the more the drive system has to work to keep

everything moving. You should be able to lift the walking belt (with the treadmill unplugged) in the center of the treadmill about 3" without

straining. Tighter belts should be loosen but make sure you don't create a dangerous slipping situation by loosening.

The motor belt (with the treadmill unplugged) should be able to be turned by hand to almost a 90 degree angle from its normal operating

position. Loosen the belt if too tight. Make sure to test for slipping

and if it does with the proper tension, replace the motor belt.

My starter won't stop running after the car startswhat causes this

I need to know year--make--model?
Sometimes you can take starter motor off, lay in on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from starter motor to battery, at the least, it should kick out drive gear and spin. When cables are removed the drive gear should retract. Could be something wrong with starter? It could be hung-up on flywheel for some reason? Could be a problem with ignition switch?
Usually two voltage circuits to starter motor, one comes from battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position. The start position should be spring loaded, when you release the key, it should spring back to run position, so that circuit, at starter motor, is no longer hot.

My 2004 3400 closed system ,runs hot in town unless heater is on. driving up a mountain pass it gets very hot.on a flat highway runs normal. new t state,resivior cap, both fans work no leaks or smell

Radiator fan motor or radiator fan thermostat defective/

Also there is a relay that operates the fan motor

In town not enough air passing through radiator allowing it to over temp.. With heater fan running acts like cooling fan keeping engine cool

Highway driving ample air passing through radiator without fan.

Hill climbing requires cooling fan/

Hope this helps?

Stopped in Belt had been slipping smelled hot but motor was barely warm. Was 30 minutes into workout and machine stopped. Electric panel works but motor won't run.tilt works

time to lube the DECK belt, use WD-40 or grease. do it by each weeks. Try to loose the deck belt. in the way that you lift the belt by 2" with your finger. Otherwise, you must replace the belt+deck. See if the belt drive is to tight. And take time for maintenance the motor, replace the carbon brush+and lube the bearing.

Belt stops at slow speeds

Check the walking belt is tensioned correctly.

Remove power from the mach.

Most machines you should be able to slide your hand under belt, only to about the center of your palm or maybe your thumb.

if walking belt tension is correct. make sure the delt has lube on it. Your owners manual will determine what type (wax or silicone) or manufacturer to use.

When inspecting the deck (laminated board under the walking belt, which it slides on top of), check for wear or damage.

Worn decks and belts should both be replaced at the same time.

Beyond a walking belt area issue, check the drive belt under the motor hood. connecting the drive motor to the front roller. try twisting the belt on its axis. about a 30degree deflection would be standard. If this belt is loose, the front roller is loosing its drive.

Sounds primarily like a belt/deck lube or wear issue.
