SOURCE: belt stops when I get on it

This will require a new front roller. The drive belt is usually fine when this happens. Just the roller and the plastic pulley have seperated.
Good Luck Tim

SOURCE: The belt slips slightly. i

* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!

SOURCE: I've got a Roger Black treadmill and on the screen it says manual and the belt wont go round when its plugged in any ideas why?

1) adjust the Reed Switch , see the diagram clean it, tight the wires connector very well.
2) tight the ribbon cables from keypads, tight the connector from display board vs lower board, clean it.
3) LUBE the deck belt, maybe you have a worn deck by lack of mainenance.
40 LUBE the rollers bearing too
5) measure the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair.
6) measure the output voltage board, for input voltage board, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
see the diagram
God bless you

Drive Belt Installation for Treadmills

The drive belt is used by the motor to drive the treadmill walking belt via the front roller pulley. A drive pulley is mounted on the roller and the roller has knurling or a sleeve to help it drive the walking belt. The treadmill console detects the current speed of the treadmill by monitoring the movement of a magnet mounted on the front roller pulley with a reed switch or by using an optic switch which monitors an optic disk mounted either on the front roller or on the motor shaft. If the sleeve moves to the side, you will not be able to keep the belt centered and many optic disks can be warped if pushed to the side by the sleeve if it moves, but we do have replacement sleeve kits if needed.


Steps to Replace Drive Belt-

1) Remove the safety key and unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet.

2) Remove the screws securing the motor hood and gently remove the motor hood.

3) Using an Allen wrench provided with the treadmill, loosen the two rear roller adjustment bolts until the rear roller comes into contact with the walking board. Turn the bolts and equal number of turns on each side and keep a count of how many turns you made so you will know how to properly re-tension the walking belt.

4) Remove the drive belt from the motor pulley. Place a screwdriver between the pulley and the belt and turn the pulley by hand. Use the screwdriver to guide the belt over the edge of the pulley. Be careful with the screwdriver to prevent damage to the pulley.

6) Mark the position of the front roller axle on the front roller bracket above the front roller adjustment bolt using a Sharpie marker so you will know where to put the bolt back into position. Remove the front roller adjustment bolt if your treadmill's front roller has a pitch adjustment bolt. If your treadmill does not have exposed roller bolts you will need additional instructions. Please see the troubleshooting section on our website for further help.

7) Gently slide the front roller from out of its mounting position on the frame. Do NOT remove the roller from the walking belt.

8) Slip the old drive belt off the roller and loop the new drive belt onto the front roller pulley.

9) Replace the roller back into its slot on the pulley side and re-tension the front roller pitch bolt to its proper place using the Sharpie mark as a guide.

10) Using the screwdriver, loop the drive belt over the motor pulley. Many Icon units originally had the drive belt misaligned by design (if you can believe it). This was to use the side load of the drive belt in order to keep tension lower. It does lower amp draw for the machine and replacing a side load drive belt occasionally is much cheaper than replacing a motor and/or controller so if your original drive belt was off-centered, install the new belt in the same manner.

11) Re-tension the walking belt.

12) Plug in the machine and check the drive belt for slipping. You can use some automotive fan belt dressing on the grooved or contact side of the belt to help it with grip on the pulleys and it will treat the belt as well. We prefer using belt dressing rather than over-tensioning the belt for the aforementioned amp reasons as well as additional stress placed on the drive system parts.

13) Replace the motor cover and test.

14) Make sure the walking belt is not slipping and is properly aligned and your treadmill is ready to use.

C2200 belt is slipping How to adjust??


If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.
Find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust.
the drive belt must be tensioned by hand. While one person applied increased tension to the drive belt, the other person should tighten the motor set bolt(s)

The treadmill is loose. How can this be fixed?


If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud, then find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability.
If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described above, the drive belt must be tensioned by hand. While one person applied increased tension to the drive belt, the other person should tighten the motor set bolt Tighten the bolt and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat steps above and retest.
If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. Follow this procedure:
First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. Rear Roller Adjustment Bolts


If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley and front roller must be replaced.
Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud. Loosen the rear roller and remove the two adjustment bolts. Some models have a spring loaded tensioner on the right hand side so be careful when removing these bolts. After the bolts have been removed, remove the rear roller end cap(s). The rear roller should now simply slide out of the walking belt.
Remove the motor hood. Using a black permanent marker, make a mark on the front roller adjustment bolt on the motor compartment side at exactly where it fits flush with the roller so you will know where to retighten it later. The adjustment bolt is on the right hand side of the front roller. Then remove the bolt with a 7/16” wrench. then remove front roller and replace with new reverse procedure mentioned above

Running belt is sliping when on treadmill - is this the running belt or the driv belt problem. I can stand on the treadmill and stop to belt and front drive wheel from spinning - so my assumption is the...


If the front roller is stopping with the walking belt, it is the drive belt. You may be able to tighten it, if it's not too old. The easiest way is to remove the belt by turning the motor by hand while pushing the belt away from the motor. Then adjust the motor back a 16th to an 8th of an inch or so, put the roller side of the belt on the roller side of the pulley, so that you have enough slack to put the belt on the motor. Now, while you pull the belt onto the front roller pulley, turn the motor and walk the belt back on. If it won't go on, this way, you probably have the motor too far back, making it too tight. Good Luck!

Belt stops running while standing on the treadmill


Either front roller may need to be replaced or the motor drive belt may need to be adjusted. This problems are caused when a walking belt is worn out and in need of replacement. Too much tension can cause bearing failure in the motor and the front roller and front roller pulley failure.

Motor drive belt adjustment: The motor drive belt is adjusted independently from the walking belt. Some newer models have an auto tensioner which is a lever that has a wheel that puts pressure on the drive belt and a spring on the other end that automatically loads the belt to the proper tension. You should not adjust these since they are preset. Tension can be affected slightly by adjusting the tension of the walking belt but if you have a slipping problem, the drive belt will require replacement. If your drive belt is too loose, it will slip on the front roller pulley or the motor pulley. If it is too tight, it will increase your amp draw to the point that you may have an electronics or motor problem. Due to this, it is better to be on the safe side and replace a drive belt rather than risk over tightening it.
