SOURCE: I have a Proform 770 EKG Treadmill jerks and squeaks

The drive belt was loose. I tightened up the motor just a smidge using a crow bar. That solved the problem.

SOURCE: Adjusting the walking belt

Here are two solutions one is to get the belt centered on the treadmill and the other is to tighten the belt.

There should be two bolts in the rear of the treadmill, one on each side. These bolts adjust the rear roller of the treadmill. The walking belt will always go to the side that is looser. To get the belt back on track, (if you can start the treadmill so the belt is running) tighten the bolt on the side that the belt has slipped to. Tighten the bolt a little bit at a time. If you tighten the bolt too much, then the belt will go to the other side.

To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns.

You need to adjust the roller tension, The adjustments are at the sides of the treadmill by the rear roller. Sometimes there is a cover over them.

How to change belt


it's a big job, the front cover protecting the motor unit has to be removed, the rear roller has to be loosened inwards by using the large allen key to release the tension. The front roller has to be loosened and lifted out of the treadmill (it may need cleaned to take away any rust)
The rear roller can be lifted out and then the bed (running deck) needs unscrewed (allen keys) this should slide out. The new running belt should be put in place in the treadmill, place the front roller in place, the bed and the rear roller, fasten each of them up and adjust the rear roller so that the belt runs straight and it tight enough that when walking on it, you can't stop the belt.

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.

Loud squeaking on my Reebok 9500 ES (three years old) from under the hood when the foot hits the treadmills - at various speeds and inclines.


HI,

Its time to lubricate your treadmill.
You must obtain the proper lubricant for your treadmill. There are several different types. Contact your manufacturer for what type is needed. Using the manufacturer provided allen wrench, loosen the walking belt approximately 10 full turns on each side of the rear roller. Apply approximately 1/2 ounce of lubricant directly in the middle of the walk area underneath the walking belt upon the deck. Retighten the rear roller 10 turns on each side. Run the treadmill at 6.0 mph for 2-3 minutes to spread the lubricant evenly. Wipe excess lube from the sides of the belt. Walk on treadmill to check for proper tension on belt.

I have a Image 15.0 R treadmill. It skips and I tried tightening the belt 1/4 turn as directed and not over tighten it. Still skips and actually squeaks now especially when running on the treadmill at 6...


3 different possibilities in my opinion:

belt is too loose, belt is too tight, belt is worn out.

Try to lift the belt and get your hand under it in the middle of the deck. If you cannot reach, it is possible that your belt is too tight. Another clue for this would be the belt "curling" on both sides at the edges. Try to loosen the belt, gradually and testing it along the way.

If on the contrary you can easily slide your hand under the belt from one side to the other, it is more likely that the belt is too loose. The squeaking might be due to the belt not being "square" on the deck. Try to loosen it even more until you can slide it with your hands across the deck. And have it aligned evenly at the front and back. Then retighten and adjust the tracking at low speed.
!!! Do not over loosen as the bolts might come out of the back roller.

A worn out belt might squeak and skip when its old.

I have a Reebok treadmill. The belt stops while the motor continues while walking on it. What could be causing this to happen?


the drive belt is too loose. you need to tighten the belt that drives the front rolller, which drives the walking belt. depending on the type of treadmill there shoudl be a way you can do this by loosening the motor and adjusting that to tighten the belt. it could also be that the belt needs to be replaced and also could be the walking belt. you should try to tighten the walking belt first. that is at the end of the treadmill where you walk on it. there are two holes one on each side of the treadmill where teh belt goes back under the treadmill. there are allen key bolts that you need to tighten clockwise one turn then try the treadmill. if it doesnt tighten then turn another full turn. if not tight enough then it might be the drive belt. if you tighten the walking belt all the way then try to tighten the drive belt.
