Sounds like the motor drive belt is slipping,remove the motor cover,be careful some models have hidden screws in recessed areas underneath if you remove the correct ones the hood comes off easily. There is a bracket that has a bolt to adjust the motor belt tension.Also if you tightened the walk belt up it may be too tight which could cause it to wear or tear easier,the rule of thumb is tighten the walk belt just tight enough so it doesn't slip.

When i am walking on the band it seems as if i am slipping


This could be 1 of 3 things. Either the walking belt need to be tightened, or the rubber motor belt is slipping (under the front hood) or the pulley has come loose from the roller.
First tighten the walking belt using the allen key provided when you purchased the machine. Locate the 2 adjustment bolts at the back of the machine and tighten (clockwise) both bolts 1 turn. Retry the machine. If there is no noticeable difference, remove the hood and see if the rubber belt is slipping. If so tighten the belt by adjusting the motor.

The belt slips slightly. i checked the motor belt and it is okay. I also adjusted the treadmill belt per instructions with about 2"-3" when i slip my hand under it.


* 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!

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, 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.

We have a Proform Sport 1000 treadmill which when you get on it the belt slips badly and it hardly moves. The belt doesn't seem loose so is the motor failing?


There is a belt between the front roller and the motor (drive belt) that is under the motor hood. The trick is to watch the front roller when you get on the walking belt. If the front roller stops with the walking belt, then the drive belt is loose and needs to be replaced or tightened. If you have already adjusted the walking belt, and you can hear the motor, it's the drive belt. There will be 3 screw on the front of the machine, and a couple of screws under the main frame. Tip the unit over to find the screws, and take off the cover. You'll be able to see where the slip is.
