It sounds like you have a bearing failing, either in the front roller or the motor. If it is the front roller it will be a dull "Clicking" noise, if its the drive motor it will be a growl noise. The growl will be so loud at top speed you wont be able to even talk over the noise. Remove the motor hood and this will help you determine the culprit.

Hi, my Pro Form 470cx has just started to stop when I walk on it intermitently. The belt is running perfectly until I stand on it and then it appears to stick instantly on the base causing a stall in the...


Susan,

The most common cause of belt slippage is lack of lubrication. Most treadmill belts use lubrication on the underside of the belt to reduce friction between the belt and the platform. This helps the treadmill glide along smoothly under the weight of a person. If your belt is lacking in lubrication, it can catch on the treadmill platform. Apply lubrication every few months to the underside of the belt to prevent this from occurring.

A petroleum or silicone based lubricant is recommended, and most easily applied in a spray can. Simply lift up the belt about midway along the platform and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath from about the middle of the platform width to the closest edge. Repeat from the other side. Apply lubricant sparingly...it can be messy.

Next, turn on the treadmill and let it run for a minute, then check if the belt still sticks. A little more lubricant may be necessary.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Screen states Lube Belt , do not have user Manual , Where are lubrication points and what type "lube" can I use ?


hi,


It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months or 150 miles to maintain optimal performance. Once the treadmill reaches 150 miles, the console will display the message "LUBE" or "LUBE BELT". The treadmill will not operate while the message is showing. Hold Stop for 5 seconds to suspend message for 5 miles. Your treadmill came with a bottle of lubricant which can be used for two applications. If you need lubricant, contact Horizon Fitness. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon Fitness.

• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power

cord at the wall outlet.

• Loosen both the rear roller bolts. (For best results, place two removable

marks on both sides of the frame and note roller position). Once the

belt is loosened, take the bottle of lubricant and apply it to the entire

top surface of the running deck. Tighten both rear roller bolts

(matching up the marks for proper position) to original position. After

you have applied lubricant, plug in the power cord, insert the safety

key, start the treadmill and walk on the belt for two minutes to spread

the lubricant.

• Lubricate the air shocks with Teflon based spray.
• Once lubrication is complete, reset the console by pressing and holding 'STOP' and Speed '+' buttons for 5 seconds.
ok

Electric motor overheats


This machine has what they call a thermal switch. It is designed to
shut the machine off if it gets too hot. This heat is caused by
friction. Friction is caused 99% of the time by the walking belt or
the drive belt. If it is the drive belt then it can be solved by
either applying a treadmill lubricant (must be made for treadmill
belts) or by purchasing a new belt. If you feel the underneath side
of the belt and you feel a screen door type feeling you just need
lubricant. If you feel a smooth surface you will probably need a
new belt. If you have lubricated in the past year and your belt has
the screen door feel then take off the motor hood cover and check
the drive belt. If it is worn then you will need to replace that.
You can purchase either of these products from the manufacturer, at www.iconservice.com. a couple of other places that may have them for discounts are www.ebay.com, www.fitnessrepairparts.com, or www.treadmilldoctors.com.

Squeaking noise from tread


usually when a treadmill begins to make a squeaking sound it means that the belt needs to be lubricated. Try Treadmill Belt Lubricant available at Canadian Tire for $10.99 and is good for Reebok treadmills.

Need to lubricate the bell of my treadmill . how i do that..?


you will need silicone lubricant with an applicator wand and all you have to do is lift the belt up enough to get the applicator wand under and spread the treadmill silicone on the machine - be very careful that you do not use any other silicone except what is made for treadmills. My company sells this product for $18.95 and it usually will last 1-2 years with proper lubrication

This generally means that lubrication is needed to be applied between the belt and belt. You may purchase these kits thru www.jadfitness.com the products name is Lube and Walk follow the instructions that come with it to apply the lubrication.

DOES THE UNDERNEATH SURFACE OF THE TREADMILL RUNNING BELT NEED TO BE TREATED WITH ANYTHING BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO BE STICKING


Yes! these units need to be maintained depending on usage. for example: 2 people using a treadmill 3 times weekly for a period of 30 min @ a pace of 3 mph would need to apply lubricant on deck every 3 months. Any exercise specialty store or sporting goods that are selling treadmills should have these lubricant kits with instruction on how to apply it.

Now their is a chance that your treadmill may either need the running belt or drive belt (under motor shroud) to have the tension adjusted.

What should I do if the treadmill walking belt slows while in use?


Sounds like your walking belt is starting to get worn,.or you need to lubricate the walking belt. Try applying a silicon lubricant, or other lubricant called for in your manual, to the bottom side of the walking belt, and the surface it contacts. ( not the drive roller).
