See the video attached. Lube the rollers bearing front and back. Test the belt drive motor, tight by 1/4" deflection, and replace if necessary.
However if the problem persist, TIME to replace old board deck.
God bless you

SOURCE: Proform 400GI Treadmill making a very loud noise,

This definitely sounds like the drive motor. One way to check is to remove the drive belt and run the motor without the walk belt connected. Obviously if you still have the noise it will be a motor issue. If not then it will be one of the 2 rollers. Good Luck! Tim

Dear Sir:
If it sounds like metal rotating on metal then it could be roller bearings or motor bearings. Most of the time the bearings will have to be pressed out and the new ones pressed in. May be you must go the treadmill to workshop. sincerely. God bless you.

Andis t outliner is making a loud noise someone help please?


This unit will not work correctly in the UK as it has a magnetic motor. No matter how you try to tune it it will be very loud and eventually the motor will burn out.

I have proform smart stride. When you turn it on, it makes a clicking noise and has no resistance. Just started the other day. It's about a year old, but rarely used


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

· 1
Check your owner's manual for diagrams and definitions. You'll need this information when you put the elliptical back together. You'll also want definitions in case you need to call the customer support line for assistance.
· 2
Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.

· 3
Consider that if the foot pedals are attached with bolts, any slipping can be fixed with a quick use of the wrench. But if the foot pedals are damaged or breaking, order new foot pedals (see Resources below) rather than run the risk of a pedal breaking while you're on the machine.
· 4
Check the hand bars. While not all people use them, as they can elevate your heart rate by up to 20 percent, they can become worn, too. While loose hand bars typically need a simple tightening of the bolt, be sure not to overtighten as the bolts can break.
· 5
Know that if the axis is bent, it's likely you need a new machine. The axis is the central alignment of the elliptical. If the machine was used by a person who is over the maximum weight limit, it can be bent or damaged. It's not an easy fix and a better idea is to upgrade to a sturdier machine

I have a Proform Smart Strider. We just assembled it & when I tested it there's a very loud scraping sound when I stride, regardless of the level or program...help, pls. Thx.


I recomend you to disassemble again, and repeat the steps. Something must be there ARE not according with the instruction assembling. Try however for to see the some loose parts, bolts, nuts, and lube.
See this small instruction.s
God bless you
Remove the screws or bolts securing the ends of the pedals to the crank axles. Slide the ends of the pedals off the axles. Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right disc shields to the base unit. Pull or pry the disc shields off the base unit and set them aside.

2

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.

3

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.

2

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.

3

Remove the bolts connecting the swing arms to the elliptical's upright. Detach the swing arms from the upright, then spread a layer of machine grease over the axles on the upright. Reattach the arms to the upright.

Loud clicking noise when turn on printer


I would check wherever possible for foreign objects in the printer. Failing that, a partial reset is available for your PSC 2410:

A partial reset can be done by:

1) Unplugging the power cord (you are already there!)
2) Press and hold the (#) key and (3) key while plugging the unit back in
