Golds gym treadmill 420 belt will not move but panel works and elevated.


hi Mary.
If you flip on the switch, set the speed and nothing happens, your treadmill is an unhappy camper. Troubleshooting involves putting on your inspector hat and taking a tour of the belt. You may have to proceed to the console if that doesn't solve the matter. Belt Tension If the belt is too tight, it could cause enough tension that the motor can't turn the belt. This is most likely the cause of your belt not moving if you recently adjusted the belt tension due to slippage. Lift the edge of the belt. If you can't raise it at least 2 to 3 inches off the walking deck, the belt is too tight. Follow the directions in your owner's manual for loosening the belt. You will need an Allen wrench to loosen the rear roller adjustment bolts.Belt CenteringA treadmill belt can shift to the right or left over time. If it shifts enough, this may cause the belt to stop moving. Stand at the back end of your machine and inspect the belt. If it has shifted, you will need to center it by turning the rear roller adjustment bolts. These bolts adjust both the tension and the centering of the belt. Follow the instructions in your owner's manual that explain which of the two bolts you need to tighten or loosen to shift the belt back to the center.Console WiresHorizon Fitness recommends checking the console wiring if your treadmill belt doesn't move. The console wire connects to the main wire that runs down the inside of the treadmill upright to the motor board. Make sure the connection between the two wires is secure. The connectors usually snap into each other. Disconnect and reconnect the wires. Make sure the wire that runs through the upright isn't pinched or twisted.Additional Options If the troubleshooting does not get the belt running again, you may have a tight motor belt or a bad motor. You will need to remove the motor hood to access these parts of your machine. If your treadmill is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for a professional repair. You may void the warranty if you attempt to work on the motor yourself.or read up some more at this link. Golds gym treadmill 420 belt will not move Google Search

Moves forward fine, but creeps when put in reverse. when on incline doesn't wasnt to go backwards at all on incline. Havent tried to fix. the linkage is ok, it has hydrolic fluid no leakage noted any...


Try adjusting the main drive belt from engine to transmission. Sometimes the tension is good enough to go forward, but when shifted into reverse the tension on the belt slackens.
I hope this will give you a direction to look in.

I have the Incline Trainer X7i. i lost the manual. the belt is tracking to the left and rubbing the side. how do i adjust the tracking to get it back to center?\r\nthank you,


Find the allen key that came with the treadmill. It is used to assemble and adjust the treadmill.
Locate the 2 adjustment screws at the rear of the machine. If the belt is shifting to the left, tighten the left screw (turn clockwise) and the same if the belt goes to the right, tighten the right.
Only turn the screw 1/2 turn and move the belt manually to shift the belt. If it requires more, turn another 1/4 turn, very little adjustment may be required to straighten the belt. Once the belt stops rubbing, start the machine running slowly (1-2 mph) and observe the belt FROM DIRECTLY BEHIND THE MACHINE. Carefully adjust the rear roller till the belt is as close to center as possible making small adjustments, 1/8-1/4 turn clockwise of the adjustment screws.

Belt slipping and moving


Here is a basic procedure that will work for the majority of treadmills out in the market:
If the walking belt has shifted to the left, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn the left rear roller adjustment bolt clockwise, and the right bolt counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn each. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centred. b. If the walking belt has shifted to the right, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn the left rear roller adjustment bolt counterclockwise, and the right bolt clockwise, 1/4 of a turn each. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill

Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills


Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
