SOURCE: DEAR FRIEND..OUR TREADMILL SA 1060..1.8HP STOPPED

An visual inspection must be made under the motor hood. First unplugged unit then remove motor shroud clean any dirt or debris.Then check for any visible signs of burning on the Motor Control Board. Also check in the front where the power switch is, that may have burned if not, there should be a main fuse holder that also could burn or fuse may have opened up. If the fuse holder is good then proceed to the fuse if it has opened up replace the fuse. Then plug unit back in while you are look at all components while someone initiate start-up and if any burning is visible then isolate what component is burning or arching. Then go to Sports Art Fitness.com go to customer service and get their international number and they should be able assist you.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a

hi.

the circuit breaker probably only covers the motor anyway, and if this is the case then the problem has been isolated already.
it sounds like the motor has burnt out, and there is a short in it somewhere. the best (and safest) thing to do is to remove the motor and either just replace it, or have it tested by an electrician.
most repair shops will happily test a motor for free if you take it to them. it should only take a few minutes.
take the circuit breaker to them as well, as it is possible to have a faulty circuit breaker.

please feel free to ask if you need more advice.

hope this helps

SOURCE: treadmill rubber tread has strong odor

Turn off and unplug the unit before making any adjustments. Check the belt alignment on the treadmill. If the treadmill is making noise or you smell burnt rubber, the belt may be loose or out of alignment. There should be a belt roller on the side or the front of the unit. You can use a hex wrench or an adjustable wrench to loosen the belt so it can be properly aligned. Make sure you tighten the belt so it does not rub against the machine. Consult the user manual for specific instructions in adjusting the belt.


  • 2 Reposition the heart rate monitor. If the monitor does not show a reading, it may need to be repositioned. The monitor should be placed against your skin so the sensor is facing toward your body and the HealthRider logo is facing away from you. The monitor will only work if you stay on the treadmill, walking in the middle of the belt.
  • 3 Test the hand grip monitors for a correct reading. These are the metal plates that are secured to the hand railing. If the plates are dirty, they may not function correctly. Wipe them clean with a damp cloth. Your palm will need to wrap completely around the plates at all times for a proper reading.
  • 4 Reset the unit if the treadmill still does not function correctly. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Leave it unplugged for about one minute and then turn the machine back on. Remove the safety key from the treadmill and reinsert it into the key slot. Taking out the key will reset the unit, clearing all memory and resetting it to factory defaults.

    SOURCE: burning smell

    This is caused in most cases by the tread mill belt being misaligned, call the company that sold it to you for instructions on how to check the adjustment. If it is under basic warranty make them do the work. If you see smoke stop using it immediately.

    Microwave smell like burning rubber


    Good Afternoon Friend,

    I understand that you are receiving a burning rubber smell from your Frigidaire microwave. I also see that your appliance will run for a couple of seconds, and then you hear a weird noise, followed by a burning rubber smell. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician, especially when dealing with your microwave. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing that sound as well as the burning rubber smell. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

    Smells like burning rubber when running


    Vacuum belts lose elasticity and will slip. It may spin the brush roll ok when you look at it but be so loose that when. Vacuuming carpets the belt will stop turning. The motor shaft is still spinning and will melt the rubber belt causing a burned rubber smell. Belts on almost All vacuums need. To be changed at least twice per year.

    I have a proform 8.5 that when walk on smell like rubber burning


    Dear Sir:

    Thank you by your request, I will help you right now.

    BURNING SMELL If you can walk on your treadmill but you get a burning smell from it,you have a bad problem and discontinue use immediately and unplug the treadmill. Burning smells are most commonly associated with the following problems: 1) Very high belt/deck friction. 2) Short in the motor. 3) Short in the wiring or electronics. 4) Literally cooking the lacquer or cardboard core (on cheap machines)in the motor from belt friction or a drive system obstruction. Friction is the #1 cause of this problem. Many cheaper treadmills have amotor with a cardboard core (people wonder why we are so down on cheap treadmills) and if the voltage and amperage through themotor heats it up sufficiently, it begins to smolder. If this is the case, you normally have to replace the belt and the motor and inspectthe deck. If the armature has cooked enough in the motor, you also have to replace the motor. If the belt and deck check out OK, check for a short in the motor. Youcan run the motor with an independent power source like a fullycharged cordless drill battery to see if the symptoms are the same. Click on thefollowing link for our motor test. If the belt and deck check out and the motor is OK, then check yourwiring and electronics for signs of scorching and replace the appropriate part(s).
    Thank you in advance, sincerely. God Bless you.
