Automatic shut down

I have a proform treadmill 600c. Today was the first time I took it to 100 minutes. At exactly one hour and forty minutes the treadmill shutdown to zero speed, but the display maintained the distance, calories, etc. Is this an automatic shutdown built in at 100 minutes for whatever reason, or did it just overheat at exactly that time? It started right back up again, but I only ran it for a few minutes after the shutdown.

SOURCE: Proform CS17e speeds up by itself after 10 minutes.

You probably need a new speed censor. If you bought it new that part should be covered under warranty.

My treadmill stops running after 3 minutes. It shuts down and I have to reset and start over again. After another 3 minutes, it shuts off again.

Sounds like a motor or electrical system cooling problem. Could be dirt or blocked motor. Try Computer air blast can and or a vacuum to clean out motor and electronics.

Why does the treadmill stop after about 45 seconds after i get on it?

1) This happen to due the lack of maintenance schedule Normally you must lube after 5 hours of use. So this system protect itselft a shut down. Now you must have a WORN DECK BELT, time to change. it

2) LUBE the rollers bearing

3) Test the bearing from main motor, replace

My proform xp slows below the set speed, the motor wines and after forty minutes starts to smell

Dear Sir:
Please RUN THE software calibration for easy diagnose and troubleshooting, and adjust the speed sensor see the diagram attached.
And you will see the problem with the motor, possible lack of LUBE, and maintenance.Now you test the motor for lubrication and maintenance too.

My question is, last night, I set the speed to 5mile/hr, the treadmill automatically stopped after 12mins( the belt stop, power was on). and I can not restart it immediately, Then after 5 mins, the belt...

A treadmill will shut down from to much friction which is due to high motor current because the walkbelt and deck are not properly lubricated. I would recommend replacing the motor controller,walkbelt,deck and applying .5 oz of lubricant on the deck every 3-6 months or 100 hours of use. This will extend your treadmill's life many years.

Walking speed for 2 hours and the machine just shut off would't turn back on for 20 minutes why?

The motor has a thermal protection device that will stop the motor if it becomes overheated. Eric

Treadmill stops running

I had simillar problem. I have proform 830 QT. My trademill stops after 10 minutes of work out. Everything shuts down and the circuit breaker pops out.

Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.

Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.

Back ground:- Contact proform customer service at 1-888-533-1333 ( and buy the treadmil cleaning kit or lubricant kit which comes with a wand for easy application. It may cost you 35 dollars including shipping. If you need to fix your treadmil right away, use NAPA silicon spray 8300. Proform actually tells do not use it as it may damage your belt. However the specialst who came to fix my treadmill just sprayed it and collected 100 dollars. When I called proform they told me lubricating will fix it and its my mistake to not trust them. I guess they knew exactly what they were saying.
