It might just need an adjustment of the hexagonal screws on both the front and rear rollers. Check out the post I had on adjusting someone's belt that was rubbing...the steps are the same. You're right, they don't sell the dual rears anymore, so if my other solution doesn't work, you'll have to call nautilus and purchase the newer treadles, which run about $900 from Bowflex. They sometimes give a 20% discount if you're nice to them, but it's still a lot of money. If the noise you hear is a consistent clicking or clunking sound, then you might get by with just adjusting it. If it's a constant scraping sound then new parts are most likely your only option. Here's a site that gives a blowup of the parts (unfortunately, I don't think they have the one for your older model, but the aside from the rear roller, it's basically the same.)

Good luck.

Carl lewis mot 25 treadmill drive motor not getting power

Maybe the mouse is sleeping in the motor? First, try to release the treadmill belt pressure so that you can turn the rollers by hand. If all of the rollers turn except one, that is probably the drive roller. If you are careful you should be able to take the belt off and get to the drive roller and its motor. Check the motor is getting power. There is probably a reset switch on the motor, reset it. If it still doesn't turn..replace the motor.

My 2005 predator is making a weird grinding noise. It runs fine and goes into every gear good. It's a little slow on start up. And just when i let off the gas it makes a noise like a chain hitting the case...

It kind of sounds like ignition or timeing knock. Try running ethinol free gas if it's available or changing the octane fuel you are useing. If that doesn't help have a service tech check it out.

Good luck.

My tc 3000 makes a loud noise and I get an err l5 on display screen

not sure about the loud noise but my issue with the l5 error was a simple adjustment to the speed sensor.. take of the left and rear covers, then look for the sensor that goes into the red grommet attached by 2 wires. slide a business card in between the wheel and the red grommet.. then make sure the speed sensor is pushed all the way against the card and then remove the card. that solved mine :)

Napa 8300 silicone is recommended. Apply under belts from front to back one fluid spray and also in bearing areas. Squeaking can also be caused by the center of the treadles rubbing to hard. If this is the case they need to be adjusted.

Error code E5-5

I didn't use mine for several years then just started again. It stopped after 15 minutes so I read the manual and used a silcone lubricant on/under the treads as recommended. That definitely helped and it was working again quite well for about a week or two. Now I get the error 5 again. Wondering if I needed to add MORE lubricant the first time so I am going to do it again tonight. Maybe it is the roller pully that needs the lubricant. Who knows. I just want it to work!! I am determined. :)

Hi ddmyatt.. They sell what is call dry lube at sports store's. for spraying under the tread's and on the wheels that the tread run's on.. Lift the tread and spray as far under it as you can on both side's. She'll be lot's quieter then before and lots easier on the motor too..
