Question about Horizon Fitness T101 Treadmill

1 Answer

After lubing the belt on my Horizon T101 it started tripping the breaker after 5-15 minutes of use. It never did this before I lubed it. Any suggestions?

I'm currently running it to see if it will trip when I'm not on the machine. It doesn't appear to be having any issues without me on it.

Step 1:

1) the old board deck belt is time to replace it
2) However you must test a) the main motor see my personal TIPS for motor help b) test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor if there are NOT the board is faulty. see the diagrams attached.

My T101 will be five years old in March. Never a problem with it. regularly lubed with silicone, lately the running belt heats up after 30 min. @ 3.5 and will emit a burning smell if not shut down.

Those symptoms point to the belt rubbing on something it's not supposed to. Look for belt material pieces or shaving. Inspect belt and if burning smell is still there, consider replacing it.

What is meant when it shows "lube belt"?

You need to apply lube between the walking belt and the black deck surface. Most manufacturers use silicone lube. We sell a lube kit for our treadmills that includes an applicator and a bottle of liquid silicone.for around $20.
