See the video and fix it. Lube the rollers bearings front+back. test the drive belt motor for loose or faulty, and replace it if necessary.

Golds gym treadmill 420 belt will not move but panel works and elevated.

hi Mary.
If you flip on the switch, set the speed and nothing happens, your treadmill is an unhappy camper. Troubleshooting involves putting on your inspector hat and taking a tour of the belt. You may have to proceed to the console if that doesn't solve the matter. Belt Tension If the belt is too tight, it could cause enough tension that the motor can't turn the belt. This is most likely the cause of your belt not moving if you recently adjusted the belt tension due to slippage. Lift the edge of the belt. If you can't raise it at least 2 to 3 inches off the walking deck, the belt is too tight. Follow the directions in your owner's manual for loosening the belt. You will need an Allen wrench to loosen the rear roller adjustment bolts.Belt CenteringA treadmill belt can shift to the right or left over time. If it shifts enough, this may cause the belt to stop moving. Stand at the back end of your machine and inspect the belt. If it has shifted, you will need to center it by turning the rear roller adjustment bolts. These bolts adjust both the tension and the centering of the belt. Follow the instructions in your owner's manual that explain which of the two bolts you need to tighten or loosen to shift the belt back to the center.Console WiresHorizon Fitness recommends checking the console wiring if your treadmill belt doesn't move. The console wire connects to the main wire that runs down the inside of the treadmill upright to the motor board. Make sure the connection between the two wires is secure. The connectors usually snap into each other. Disconnect and reconnect the wires. Make sure the wire that runs through the upright isn't pinched or twisted.Additional Options If the troubleshooting does not get the belt running again, you may have a tight motor belt or a bad motor. You will need to remove the motor hood to access these parts of your machine. If your treadmill is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for a professional repair. You may void the warranty if you attempt to work on the motor yourself.or read up some more at this link. Golds gym treadmill 420 belt will not move Google Search

I have a vivotion treadmill, the display works but the treadmill belt has stopped turning. Any suggestions?? Is does the motor have a desperate fuse ??

It might be a fuse. A friend found his motor was overheating and stopping very quickly. Think it was worn bushings or bearings. He replaced the motor on his.

My profrom 480e threadmill is tripping as soon as I start it.The kids palyed with red stop button. I put the stop button back, but still it trips.How do i fix it.


Looseness or discolorations of the prongs on the plug or the terminals in the wall or extension indicate a weak connection. A weak connection lowers the voltage to the treadmill and causes the motor to work harder. With low voltage the motor draws more amperage and causes the circuit breaker in the treadmill to trip.

Another cause for circuit breakers to trip is the belt needs lubrication. Check for belt lubrication and ease of movement. To test the walking belt lubrication, do not turn the treadmill motor on. Set the elevation to the highest level. Stand near the front of the walking belt. Push yourself firmly toward the rear of the treadmill. If the belt is properly lubricated the belt will take you to the rear edge of the treadmill and dump you off on the floor. If you move and stop, the belt needs lubricating.

Hello i have a weslo cadence 260 treadmill,it runs for about 1 minute then stops,the motor stops too,i have to keep tuning it off and on for it to work again,whats the problem with it,would be great if you...

It sounds like you have a worn deck and (or) belt. If the machine runs just fine without being on it but stops when someone is on it, then it sounds like a worn belt/deck.
The friction under the belt is so great that it overworks the motor to the point where it shuts itself down. The surface needs to be slick and smooth for the motor to work the least amount.
You could try to put some silicone under the walking belt and see if it helps. It really depends on how many miles are on it.

When i start running it isnt a steady flow of the belt there is jerks every few seconds making it very hard to run and almost is enough to make you fall what do you think the problem might be

It sounds like you either have a loose walk belt or a slipping front drive pully. The walk belt shoould be tightened so that you can pull up on the edge of the belt about 2 inches. If that is OK, pull the motor cover, start the treadmill and walk trying to stop the belt with you feet. Watch the drive belt this time (the small one going from the drive motor to the front drive roller), if this belt stops, you need to tighten motor, or replace if it is older/wornout. If the drive belt keeps turning fine, watch the front roller and see if the pully connected to the drive belt keeps turning while the roller connected to the walk belt stops, if so you need a new front drive roller.

Hope this helps

The track of our image 19.0r treadmill slips when it's up at 6-10 mph. I just replaced the belt because I thought that would solve the problem, but it didn't. Help please!

I had the same problem..the fix was easy. Remove the cover from the motor area, examine the belt(its on the right). My belt was simply loose. I took a wrench (1/2 or 9/16 I think)...loosened the bolt, wedged the motor so that the belt was tighter, and tightened the bolt. Volia. Cured...Good Luck.

Reebok RX100 won't work right

Sounds like you could possibly have a bad drive motor or something is wedged into the walk belt somewhere keeping it from turning. Check this out. One more question. How long does the walk belt turn for, seconds, before it stops. Is it like 3 to 5 seconds or less than that.

Reebok i run treadmill stops working after 10 mins

If everything still works but no belt movement, you motor controller is more than likely shot. If replacing you want to also pay attention to the deck and belt. Sence it sut down while running, it sound it an over heating problem which is usually caused from too much friction between the walking belt and the deck(the board under it) May require lube or may need replacing.
