Go To Iconservice.com Click on manual input Image then M# IMTL31504.
Check the end caps to see if one of them is cracked before adjusting the belt. The crease cannot be straighten and 9 of 10 times it can be a hazard when walking so if you proceed using it in this condition BE CAREFUL!!!

Susan,

The most common cause of belt 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.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Running belt has creased badly, will I need new belt ?


Wow, this is weird, I've just come back from the gym and the guys there were 'fixing' a crease on one side of the belt.

They had the belt off the treadmill, and put a wooden board on the inside, with some weight plates on them, a few wooden blocks on the inside, so the belt looked like it was the same height as when it is fitted and then a wooden board and weights on the top.

By the time I'd finished my session, they were refitting it and it looked good, you could still see a slight dent, but not a full crease.

Hope this helps you and good luck.

Walking belt folds


It sounds like one of the adjusted bolts or endcaps that adjusts the walk belt is broken,look at the bolts where you adjust and see if the side the belt is shifting to is broken.It may have ruined the belt also but you wont be able to tell till you correct the tracking problem.
