SOURCE: I have a noisy Pro-Form Model 285T treadmill

Hey Richard Depending on the noise it could be one of several components failing. If loud clanking or clunking noises these components are Drive Motor, Front or Rear Rollers.
If it is a loud humming noise increasing and decreasing when planting yours feet then it is either the Inductor ( square object ) or the internal windings of the Drive Motor.
Unplug your unit remove the motor shroud with a long shaft flat tip screw driver you'll be able to pin point the problem with this tool.
Now locate front shaft and rear roller tension adjusting bolt ( refer to owners Manual) plug in unit, start unit and touch flat tip on the shaft and place your ear on the handle the noise will be amplified and you will be able to locate the noise repeat this procedure on the other above mentioned components if problem is not found. GOOD LUCK!

kilgore511,

The most common cause of belt sticking or "slippage" is lack of lubrication. Most treadmill belts use lubrication on the underside of the belt to reduce friction between the belt and the platform. This helps the treadmill glide along smoothly under the weight of a person. If your belt is lacking in lubrication, it can catch on the treadmill platform. Apply lubrication every few months to the underside of the belt to prevent this from occurring.

A petroleum or silicone based lubricant is recommended, and most easily applied in a spray can. Simply lift up the belt about midway along the platform and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath from about the middle of the platform width to the closest edge. Repeat from the other side. Apply lubricant sparingly...it can be messy.

Next, turn on the treadmill and let it run for a minute, then check if the belt still sticks. A little more lubricant may be necessary.

If you have found this helpful, please take a moment to give me four thumbs up.

Regards,

DIYpro

Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right side shields to the base unit. Detach the side shields and set them aside. Examine the interior of the base unit and locate the drive belt.

Pull the drive belt free of the crank pulley, flywheel and any other pulleys. Discard the old drive belt and install a new belt in its place. Turn the crank axles by hand to confirm that the belt will turn smoothly when the device is in use.
Lubrication:
Detach the ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Spread a layer of machine grease over the crank axles, then reattach the ends of the pedals.

Remove the bolts connecting the pedals to the swing arms. Detach the pedals from the arms, then spread a layer of machine grease over the axles on the swing arms. On some models, the bolts may also serve as the axles. Reattach the pedals to the arms.

The latch that opens the door to my Jenn-Air model M170 microwave oven is broken. I need to repair or replace it.


If the point of damage can be glued together with good bonding and further re-enforcement , it can be strong to withstand pressure.
So remove the assembly to try this out before you think there is no way out but to replace with the handle assembly from the service center.
The other option is to get one from a scrapped set.

Hi my days strider midi4 keeps going in reverse for about 4 seconds after you take the throttle off


spares sounds like the throttle pot is not being centered upon release making the scooter move in reverse or forward depending on which way it is off center. try pushing on the thottle lever slowly forward when you stop to see if that stops the creeping. Then you can try to adjust the pot by loosening the lever and retightening it in the forward direction that stops the creeping. You might have to order a new throttle pot assembly to get this working right. Hope this helps
