Question about Proform XP 590S TREADMILL Drive Motor

Open Question

Incline mechanism on Proform 590 HR does not engage properly

When 'incline' button is pushed, the base rises correctly but then slips/disengages and returns to the flat position. The electronic incline monitor continues to record the chosen incline even though it has slipped. I suspect it has not been assembled correctly. Any advice?(bought second-hand, ready-assembled and without instruction manual .... yes, I know ....!!!!)

SOURCE: belt is slipping

your macnine needs some maintenance. slippage on the proform is usually due to a worn out front roller and a worn motor driving the belt. both can be replaced. or you may want to find a good used one as many get no use before the optomististic owner decides to sell.

One possibility is the pulley in the front roller.The shaft that goes into the roller slips making the belt seem as if its slipping. To check it it requires tmarking both surfaces with paint and then see if the mark seperates.

SOURCE: Belt is slipping and catching

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

Horizon Elite 5.3 treadmill blows JP2 fuse. Incline does not work, all other functions work even with fuse blown. Does not blow if I disconnect incline motor.


Great work! Another great point for treadmill servicers! Please be aware....inside a treadmill lift motor, there is a small potentiometer or pot, that watches the "throw" or position of the lift screw, which relates to the treadmill incline. These lift motors have a sheath or "nut" on the screw that MUST be set properly at the ZERO degree mark of the deck, for proper operation from zero elevation to 12% or whatever it's uppermost incline is. This must be assembled correctly, or like in this case, that motor begins to "pinch" at one end of it's "throw" and the current will rise in the winding and blow a fuse, saving the lift from burning up. Nice job troubleshooting Thad!

Why won't my treadmill incline or decline?


Hi there, checked both upper and lower bolted connections, and check that lift motor hasn't cracked and frame is intact with no blockages to a possible scissor arm-lift assembly underneath the unit ? If this all checks out, maybe a small gearbox on the lift motor failed internally. Good luck.

What does Brake light,VDC light and slip lights on . This happened when brake pedal pulsates,but I do have brake pedal.


See if the following information helpful:
1. Keep an eye on the dashboard for the indicators marked "SLIP" and "VDC Off" which will tell you the status of the computerized handling system if handling isn't normal. "SLIP" will blink when VDC is operating. "VDC OFF" means the system is off. Turn the VDC system back on if the Nissan's handling is poor by pressing the "VDC Off" button until the light goes out.

2. Adjust your driving if "SLIP" comes on. "SLIP" means the road conditions may be slippery. The VDC aids in steering and stopping, but be careful, even if VDC is engaged.

3. Remove any aftermarket suspension parts like enhanced shock absorbers if the "VDC Off" light comes on and handling is bad. The VDC system is geared for stock equipment and tires only. Use winter tires or snow chains on snow-covered roads. VDC won't substitute for the correct winter equipment.

4. Don't drive on very inclined corners with high banks and leave the VDC switch on if the handling is poor with VDC on. The system can't operate properly in that environment. Disengage VDC, or avoid those kinds of roads.

Stuck in 4wheel drive??? help :)


when driving in 4wd engagement there is a problem in that the torque in the axles and drive lines is not dissipated on hard surfaces as the wheels cannot slip ( great for snow ice mud gravel and the like but a no-no on hard non slip surfaces
yes reversing it will relieve it but if on hard surface ,winds it up again in reverse
better to simply drive two wheels onto the grass verge of the hard surface and then kick it into 2wd
if the diffs are limited slip diffs then the antislip action in the diffs will be pressed very hard together and will produce problems on turning corners
you may have success if you get all 4 wheels of the ground on a hoist and let the wheels spin and then try to engage 2wd

Treadmill will not maintain the correct speed.


You can get a book by calling 1-800-999-3756. The treadmill you are usine in a cheaper model. the motors on those units are not that strong. when you incline your unit gravity make the belt move faster. Remember incline put a lot of pressure on you lower spine. This can cause injury for some.
