Turns on and can hear the motor going, but no movement
Have had this for a few years, but used very very little. Could there be a rubber belt that has broken or slipped off? A website or manual online on how/where to check that part out would be very useful.
Re: Turns on and can hear the motor going, but no...
Without make and models number can't get a manual, but it should be easy to check. Just need to remove the motor cover, (the one by your feet) there should be screws around it (3-6) then jiggle the cover it should come loose, if it does check for more screws, sometimes they put screws in from below. Once off the belt should be obvious, look at the end of the motor. (the other end)

If you are adjusting the walking belt that much (7 complete turns) it sounds like the drive belt the small rubber belt from the motor to the front roller is really loose. You should only have to adjust the walking belt 2-3 turns max... you do not want to prematurely stretch your walking belt!
Fuse is a dead end in this case. Is there belt movement with the LS error, where the belt moves for a few seconds then quits? If so, there may be a problem with the upper - contact Precor and have them look up bulletins on that model/SN. If no belt movement, then there is a problem with either motor or MCB, probably MCB.
does is just not move when you're standing on it, or not even move when you're not standing on it. It may be a simple belt adjustment or if the motor is running but there's no track movement you may be looking at a loose/broken drive belt. Take the cover off, start it up and look at the motor/drive pulley assembly. If the motor turns and the front roller doesn't, tension the drive motor by moving it back. If the front roller turns but the track doesnt, do a track adjustment as per your users manual.
If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove
the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.
Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise,
1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly
tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the
walking belt 2 to 3 inches above the walking platform.
Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then,
plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully
walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until
the walking belt is properly tightened. Now if this does not solve this problem then check the drive belt and adjust accordingly, also reverse the process of the above mentioned
There could be 3 different problems with this machine.
1) loose drive belt (this model has a spring loaded idler that tightens the tension)
2) Bad front drive roller (you wil hear the pulley spinning freely on the front roller if the roller is bad)
3)Last is possibly the walk belt itself. May need to be tightened or replaced.
To try to tighten the walk belt, go to the end of the walk belt and find the 2 adjust allan screws in the end and tighten them 2 revolutions clockwise on both screws.
Hope this helps a little. Tim
if you hear the motor moving with no belt turning the problem is either the front roller or the drive belt. If there is no motor movement then this is usually an indication of a bad control board located under the lower section of the treadmill.
