1)Lube the deck belt with 100% silicones or wax follow the instr. manual
2) Lube the rollers bearing with wd-40
3) Test the drive belt motor,for worn and replace if necessary
4) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair.
5) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty..

Kenmore dryer doesn't turn on and belt broken. I can hear timer on if I hold start button on. If belt was only problem wouldn't dryer motor still turn on


It depends on the model on some models they have a belt switch so that when the belt breaks the switch kills power to the motor and it wont run until the belt is replaced and the switch is engaged. If you need more help with making this repair visit the link below:

Why wont it run?


Is the motor running? If not, is it receiving power? Is the belt slipping? If motor has brushes, they might need replacement.

Precor error 20


Precor Error Code 20 Error Code: 20 Manufacturer: Precor
Model: All Models
Error Description: Error 20, Too many Maximum Power Requests in 1 Second - The error 20 observes a treadmill's power bit reading when the treadmill was operating at speeds of 1 mph or less. Power bits indicate the relative time that the motor controller drive circuit is turned on. Power bits is an indication of the amount of power the load is demanding from the motor controller. Error 20 indicates that at a speed of 1 mile per hour or less, an excessive amount of power is being demanded from the motor controller for an excessive length of time. Possible Reason:
  1. Starting the running belt under a very heavy load can cause the error 20 to appear.
    1. The user (especially a heavier user) is standing on the running belt as they start the belt into motion.
  2. A badly worn deck and/or running belt can cause the error to appear when the user steps onto the belt.
  3. Badly worn drive motor brushes may not be making proper contact with the drive motor commutator causing the error to occur when the user steps onto the running belt. The unit may also slow down or become sluggish when the user steps onto the running belt.
  4. A leaky or shorted drive motor filter capacitor (on units equipped with SCR motor controller) could increase the current demand enough to cause the error.
  5. A leaky or shorted drive motor inductor (on units equipped with SCR motor controller) could increase the current demand enough to cause the error.
  6. The high power demand is caused by a shorted or de-magnetized drive motor.
Recommended Action:
  1. Instruct the user to straddle the running belt while starting the treadmill at a low speed, such as 1mph or less, and then step onto the running belt.
  2. Determine the amount of AC input current being drawn by the unit under no load and loaded conditions using a clamp on AC ammeter. The current displayed can be used to determine the condition of the deck and/or running belt. These same readings should be taken on a like unit, in good operating condition with a known good deck and running belt. The readings from the unit in good operationg condition can be used as the benchmark. Compare readings and replace* the deck and/or running belt if necessary. *Some units have a reversible deck. Be sure if the deck is being flipped or replaced, a new belt is installed on the new deck surface.*
  3. Inspect and repalce both drive motor brushes if necessary.
  4. Measure the AC input current without a load using a clamp on AC ammeter. Electrically isolate the filter capacitor from the drive motor circuit. The drive motor leads need be kept intact so the drive motor will operate with the filter capacitor removed from the circuit. Re-measure the no load AC input. If the AC input current is significantly lower, replace the filter capacitor.
  5. Measure the AC input current without a load using a clamp on AC ammeter. Electrically isolate the inductor from the drive motor circuit. The drive motor leads need be kept intact so the drive motor will operate with the inductor removed from the circuit. Re-measure the no load AC input. If the AC input current is significantly lower, replace the inductor.
  6. Swap the existing drive motor with a known good drive motor.

Schwinn belt stopped


Dear Sir:
1) You must LUBE the Deck Belt, in according with the instruction manual. The deck maybe is worn.
2) See if the deck belt is in bad condition.
3) Test the drive belt if o.k
4) Test the main motor if running, if not the motor need attention and repair.
5)Test the input voltage for motor coming from the main motor BOARD.
see my personal TIPS for HELP.

sincerely. God bless you

My ProForm 750 only runs at low speed. Varying


If u r seeing the increasing variation takeing effect on the panel but the speed does not increase in real, then there is nothing wrong with the push button for sure.
what it could be is ,
1. Your motor is getting overheat quickly and does not accept the higher speed commands.
2. it could be a belt slip also (do u hear any extra noice / vibration when u increase speed)
3. next time, pls unplugg the unit for atleast 4 hrs and when u start after that increse the speed very next moment and see if it works. if it does increase this way then it is time take look first on the belt ans then check the motor.

Good luck.
