Question about Proform Pro Form 525 Si Treadmill Walking Belt Pctl3206

Open Question

Proform 525si tredmill circuit breaker trips off while walking.

Hi, I just got my sisters old proform 525 si. She warned me that it had "shut down" a couple of times on her while she was running. I am heavier than her, and I use it to walk. The first couple of times were fine- I walked about 30 minutes. Recently it stopped after I had been walking about 15 minutes, I unplugged it and the next time I went to use it I flipped the breaker on it back on. It now just happened after only 5 minutes. Do you think I need (hopefully:) to lubricate it, or get a new belt? It does seem pretty "squeeky". Any help is appreciated!!

Proform crosswalk 395 keeps tripping circuit breakers

If it's happening as soon as you press start then you need a controller and a walking belt. If it's doing it after a few minutes of use then you need to replace your walking belt.

Tredmill stop when walking

Try to tension the Walking belt. If the walking belt is not in tension then the belt will stop when you step on it. Watch the video to find how to tension the walking belt. Every treadmill follows the same procedure.

Dear doctor , Really i need to know if the ProForm 525E motor is DC or AC , can i run it on a gym ??

yes you can run in your gym, any machine is global attached by ISO 9000 + etc , and there are conditions for tipical voltage in many continents like North America, latin america, etc.

In short you can connect your tredmill in 120VAC(alternating current) or AC only you must provide a good circuit for protection with the require dimension wires + ampacity of breaker.

How do i unfold my proform 680 lt tredmill

Should be a knob on the storage latch that pulls out of the metal shaft. Make sure you support the walking deck with your other hand so it doesn't drop suddenly.

How do I best maintain the belt on a Proform 525?

read your manual- there is a small section that states NOT to use silicone/wd-40 on your item. You can use only the lube the manufacture(ICON) reccommends. Sears Parts store or parts on Phone 1-800- FON PARTS your part # is 06-831-135855 it is called walking belt lube The retail store does NOT sell this lube, they do sell the silicone spray-but its for the OLDER treadmills I know this I work on treadmills for the company!!!! with a little work, bypass the retailer, go to the source- they charge less...
