Question about Proform Exercise & Fitness
I have a Proform PFTL 20862 treadmill. Until recently working fine. The motor will get the walk up to speed normally but then start making noise and slowing down, speeds up, then slows down until the errors show up on the display. The components on the motor control board get really hot. The motor spins freely without much drag. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the motor or the board. I also need to know where I might find the parts. Thanks, John
This is a controll problem and not a motor problem

This condition is when the treadmill operates normally without a person on the belt and then slows down when someone steps on the
belt or when the treadmill operates normally for a given period of time
with someone on the belt then abruptly begins to slow down.
There are four typical causes for this problem (listed in order of our experience:
1) The walking belt and/or deck are worn. (85% of the time)
2) The walking belt and/or motor belt are too tight- if you have adjusted either recently. (8% of the time)
3) The motor has lost torque and needs brushes or has demagnetized. (5% of the time)
4) The controller is dropping output. (2% of the time
Test every step.
