Try the reset button on the treadmill. It's kind of hidden so look closely.

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.

Hello There, Thank you for all the information. It appears as if your walk belt is worn. What is happening is the friction from the bottom of the belt is actually causing the motor to overheat (there is a thermal cutout inside where the 2 blue wires go) When the belt wears the cloth on the underside becomes flattened out causing too much surface area to contact the walk board, thus the extra friction.
To check your walk board you can loosen the adjusting bolts on the rear and while lifting the walk board look underneath. If there is any wear/white areas then you will need to replace the board as well. You will be able to tell by just rubbing your hand across it and check for any places where the black film may be coming off.
Also the only time you really need to replace any of the rollers is when the bearings go bad or the pulley on the front roller separates. The rollers are about a 1% chance of causing this problem.
Good Luck! and great question, Tim

SOURCE: Where can I purchase a teflon spray lubricant for treadmill?

Tunturi.com or accellfitnessna.com should have the lubricant you need. Order it online and they should be able to ship it directly to your house. I service tunturi treadmills, although I haven't come across a teflon lubricated machine, it is very important with these machines you stick with the manufacturer specified lubricants.

SOURCE: horizon treadmill won't start running

The manual said that after lubricating the deck, press Stop and Speed buttons together for 5 minutes and this will reset the lubrication message and the treadmill should work.

Replace control board


see this The most likely cause of the problem is a worn treadmill belt and deck.
Most of the time its caused from not lubricating between the treadmill belt and deck. This causes friction and the surfaces wear putting greater stress on the electronics. The treadmill is shutting down to protect the electronics. You should stop using the treadmill and have a technician check it.
If it sounds like metal rotating on metal then it could be roller bearings or motor bearings. Its best to have the treadmill work carried out by a technician in the workshop. Most of the time the bearings will have to be pressed out and the new ones pressed in

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.

When running on our treadmill the belt slips.


Hello, It sounds like you have aslipping front roller pully. Remove the motor hood and watch the front roller while you are on it. Once the belt is moving slowly, try to stop the wlak belt by planting your fett for a second, if the walk belt stops, but the drive belt and motor continue to run, the plastic pully is slipping and the whole front roller will need to be replaced.

Hope this answers your question.

Treadmill seems to slip in all speeds when weight is put on it. Changed mother board and checked belt tension all were good. Should this machine be lubed?


Pull the hood off. Stand on the sides of the walk platform and start the belt at 4mph. Take one foot and step on the walk belt hard. Look at the pulley on the front roller. Does the pulley continue to turn while the roller stops? If so, the pulley is slipping in the roller (which is a press fit). Replace the front roller or remove the motor belt from the pulley.Align the pulley with the pulley on the motor by tapping with a mallet. Drill an 1/8 hole throught the pulley and roller. Countersink the pulley hole so a small head screw will be under the pulley groves. Install screw in this hole. This is called pinning and is a pemanent fix. If both the pulley and the roller stop together when the belt is stepped on the motor belt is loose. If only the walkbelt stops when stepped on, the walkbelt is loose.

When i start running it isnt a steady flow of the belt there is jerks every few seconds making it very hard to run and almost is enough to make you fall what do you think the problem might be


It sounds like you either have a loose walk belt or a slipping front drive pully. The walk belt shoould be tightened so that you can pull up on the edge of the belt about 2 inches. If that is OK, pull the motor cover, start the treadmill and walk trying to stop the belt with you feet. Watch the drive belt this time (the small one going from the drive motor to the front drive roller), if this belt stops, you need to tighten motor, or replace if it is older/wornout. If the drive belt keeps turning fine, watch the front roller and see if the pully connected to the drive belt keeps turning while the roller connected to the walk belt stops, if so you need a new front drive roller.


Hope this helps

When weight is put on belt it stops. works fine by itself at all speeds


If you can stop the belt. You need to be aware that both running & drive belts can cause the same problem so I suggest that you remove the motor shroud and when you are adjusting whether the front roller is moving and the running belt has stopped (adjust back rollers) or the roller has stopped and motor is rotating ( adjust Drive Belt)

Belt stops when I get on it


This will require a new front roller. The drive belt is usually fine when this happens. Just the roller and the plastic pulley have seperated.
Good Luck Tim
