Question about Treadmills

1 Answer

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.

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)

How to adjust belt?


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!

Where are the fuses on Precor 9.27


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.

Belt won't move


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.

Proform 622 Exp treadmill belt slips


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

Hello. A year without use often causes the belt to adhere to the front and rear drum. Pry the belt loose and toss some talcum powder in there to get it going again. Joe

Reebok Vista belt not working properly


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

What does error 1 mean shows in incline window. happens at start, belt doesnt start after countdown?


error 1 simply means no belt movement generally. If belt moves a little it could be the speed sensor but generally it's the motor controller.

Belt on nordic track exp 1000 not moving today but worked this week. machine turns on though


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.

My proform 830 qt circuit keeps flipping


I've been having this problem too and it seems the best solutions i've came up with have been to buy a lube kit for the treadmill from the proform website or replace the circuit breaker.
