SOURCE: Treadmill will not maintain the correct speed.

your belt may not be tight enough and it is slipping which can cause it to move faster than the motor

SOURCE: The walking belt on my

Hi there,

You can usually find the screws to tighten the belt at the back of the machine - but be careful not to tighten too much. A quarter turn may be all that is needed. A gentle tug will get the belt back into alignment if it is askew. Remember that if you have trouble tightening or realigning the belt, you should seek advice from the manufacturer or the fitness store where you bought your treadmill exercise equipment.

Most new treadmill machines do not require belt lubrication, and therefore you should only lubricate your belt if the manufacturer specifically recommends it. Most of the manufacturers who do recommend regular lubrication sell kits with instructions and all the equipment you need to make quick work of the task.

Post further comments for more help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks

You must LUBE the deck belt first, this happen because you do not lube maintenance schedule, Do it every week from use.Maybe you have a WORN deck belt.

2) LUBE the rollers bearing front and end, use WD-40

3) Test the drive belt motor, for cracking or worn, and replace.

Belt is slipping and squeaking when walked upon what type of lubricant should be used


Sounds like the motor belt is slipping. Make sure the belt from the motor to front roller pulley is tight.Once you have that adjusted lube and adjust the walk belt. The squeaking is usually from the motor belt. Many treadmills(Proform, Nordictrack for example) use Silicone lube (lube n walk, or silicone With teflon from Lowes works good) Call the manufacturer to make sure it uses a silicone lube.

How do I best maintain the belt on a Proform 525?


read your manual- there is a small section that states NOT to use silicone/wd-40 on your item. You can use only the lube the manufacture(ICON) reccommends. Sears Parts store or parts on Phone 1-800- FON PARTS your part # is 06-831-135855 it is called walking belt lube The retail store does NOT sell this lube, they do sell the silicone spray-but its for the OLDER treadmills I know this I work on treadmills for the company!!!! with a little work, bypass the retailer, go to the source- they charge less...
