I found a much easier way to remove the front roller. Here goes:

  1. Remove the cover
  2. Loosen the back roller. Turn each hex screw at the end of the treadmill about 10X or so. Make sure you keep count so you can tighten each side the same number of times when you are finished.
  3. Use a screwdriver to unhook the spring that holds the tension pulley to the frame
  4. Remove the drive belt from the motor pulley.
  5. Now this is the tricky part. The axle of the roller is just about the exact size of the hole in the frame in which it rests. The axle has a little notch about a half inch from the end that is a smaller diameter than the axel. The notch settles on the ridge of the frame and keeps it from moving side-to-side. You'll need to grab each end of the front roller and lift up and try to align each end of the axle with the hole in the frame. It might take some wiggling. Gently press away from the pulleys as you are doing this. When both ends line up one end will go further into the frame, while the end with the pulleys will slide out of the opening altogether.
  6. Once this happens, you can lift up on the end of the roller with the pulley and slip the old belt off and put the new belt on.
  7. Slip the axle back into the frame opening until it locks back into place.
  8. Put the belt around the roller pulley, under the tension pulley and around the motor pulley
  9. Using needle nose pliers, grab the spring and reattach it to the frame.
  10. Replace the cover
  11. Viola! Hope this helps.

The only way I found to remove the front roller was to disconnect the right side hinge (watch you fingers, it's under lots of force). Then clamp a pair of vice grips on the roller axel between the roller and support. Then use a crowbar to pry the axel (between the vice grips and base support) from the support. Make sure you disconnect the bottom plastic on the right side to avoid breaking it. Reassemble the same way. You will need quite a bit of force to reconnect the hinge. I used a ratcheting tie down to align the holes (pull the right side deck and the right side base together). There must be an easier way but I have not found one yet since the roller supports are a continuously welded u-shapped frame.

I have nordictrack A2105 and although we "oiled" the belt and replaced motor belt, it still slips. What are we doing wrong?


remove the hood. Turn the treadmill on to speed of 4 or 5 and straddle the walk belt. While the treadmill is running (with good shoes on) step hard on the walkbelt while observing the motor belt and front roller belt pulley. Does just the belt or front roller stop? if so the belt is loose. If the belt does not stop check to see if the front roller stops and the front roller pulley keeps going. If so the front roller pulley is slipping on the roller. If the belt, pulley and front roller are all moving and the walkbelt is the only thing that stops when stepped on then the walk belt is loose. To repair a slipping front roller you have 2 options: 1) purchase a new roller assy or 2) loosen the motor belt and push it to off to the side of the front roller pulley (no needto remove). Realign the roller pulley to the motor pulley. You may have to tap it into alignment. On the inside section of the grooved part of the pulley drill an 1/8" hole thru the pulley and thru the roller housing. (If you drill to the outside portion of the pulley on the left hand side you will hit the roller bearing. Now take a larger drill bit like a 3/8" and lightly countersink the plastic pulley - try not to drill thru the pulley with the larger bit. Using a thin head sheetmetal screw, install the screw so the head is just below the ribbed surface of pulley. If you screw up your first attempt just rotate everything 90° and try again.

Belt stops running although you can hear motor running. How do you replace front roller pulley?


Loosen off the rear roller adjustment bolts, 10 turns each side counterclockwise.
Remove the motor drive belt.
The front roller should now be removable. If you have difficulties, back off the rear roller adjustment bolts 3-4 turns further. Keep track of how many counterclockwise turns so you are able to readjust the belt after replacing the front roller pulley assembly.
Repeat the instructions in reverse once the front roller is in position.

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

GE dryer is getting louder when running


most common cause is the failure, or wear of the rollers at the rear,
the drive belt places a lot of torque on the drum, and it has rollers to support this force, in addition to nylon guides as the front has

good roller

worn roller

most dryers access from the front, the front panel and door come off,
here are generic removal instructions

with dryer unplugged examine lower front panel.
If there are two screws at lower corners
  • remove screws
  • swing front panel up from bottom
  • unhook top clips
  • undo door switch wires
  • set panel and door aside
If there are no screws
  • remove llint screeen from top
  • remove 2 screws from under lint screen
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade
    push spring clips at front top corners
  • tilt top up
  • remove 1 screw each side 1/3 way from top of dryer
  • tilt front panel down
  • undoor door switch wires
  • set front panel aside
Common to both
  • reach under drum to belt tensioner, pull tensioner to end of spring travel
  • unhook belt from motor and tensioner
  • withdraw drum forward
  • examine rollers felts nylon guides
replace rollers in pairs if worn
replace nylon glides if worn
replace felts if worn, the back one may wear before the front one, if the dryer is the open drum type,
