Have you tried to calibrate the speed. If not you might want to try it and see if it will help you with your issue.

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 860 has belt slippage and sometimes

I had the same problem and was about to change the walking belt. Instead I removed the 5 screws holding on the hood and adjusted the Reed Switch and took a walk. Whenever I stomped on the belt hard it would stop. I Could now see (because I removed the hood) that the motor continued to spin and the Motor Drive Belt was slipping and was the culprit. Something that I had noticed before was all this fine rubber dust coming out near the left front corner where this belt is. If you see that it's a good indicator the motor belt is slipping and needs to be replaced.

I need to tighten the belt, it keeps slipping while walking on it


Unplug unit then remove motor shroud then do the following: If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.

1) Adjusting the running belt if the problem: If the walking belt slips when walked on, 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. 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.
2) Adjusting Drive belt: Find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust.

I got my ProForm 860 treadmill and the previous owner said it shuts off after 1.5 miles (overheats). The company said its due to friction. How do I know what is causing the friction. Loose belt, worn belt,...


Be sure there is no damage to the walk board itself before replacing the belt. You may want to try lubricating the board before replacing the belt.(silicone spray from any hardware store) This is also caused by overtightening of the drive belt and/or walk belt. Good Luck, Tim
