Smooth Fitness treadmill 5.25 buzzing noise

My Smooth Fitness 5.25 treadmill has a very loud buzzing noise. This happens when you first turn it on, before you start the belt moving. It sounds like it is coming from the main motor area. If I fold up the treadmill the noise completely goes away by about 45 degrees getting quieter the farther I go up. This is true even when the belt is running.

    OK, I fixed it. I opened up the case and on the right side of the circuit board is a transformer. That was shaking and rattling at a high frequency causing the loud buzzing. I removed it, put fabric under and reattached it. I used zip ties to hold the loose metal casing still with more padding and finally siliconed the loose metal in place. The treadmill is now completely silent except when actually turning the tread.

Smooth fitness treadmill beeps every two minutes


Walk on a treadmill to calculate distance.
Most electronic treadmills allow you to program for an alarm or beep when you've walked a certain distance.
Try to turn off reading your owner manual.
And check if there are some error code?.

If you do not have owner manual go to this web:

and download free.

Oil can is showing. Where do I put oil? (otherwise, I love the thing).


I called Smooth Fitness and talked to the Service Tech. The oil can symbol is basically a reminder to oil the tracking or underneath treadmill matting. The symbol will go away, from that Service Tech told me. You can also purchase a Silicon Spray(PArt 8300) for a few dollars instead of buying Smooth Fitness's Silicon Oil for about $35.00+.

Could be a number of reasons - where is the black dust coming from? remove the motor hood and check for misalignment of the drive belt from motor to the front roller.
