I can only assume you mean drag, not brag. That being said, it really sounds like your running belt needs to be tightened. I will attach a link with instructions on how to do this. The adjustment should be found at the rear of the machine. How to Tension Treadmill Walking Belt that Slips

I have a Proform Smart Stride. It makes a loud clicking noise in the back when you plug it in and has no resistance when it turns no matter the resistance setting.

see the video attached. Lube the rollers bearing front and back. Test the belt drive motor, tight by 1/4" deflection, and replace if necessary.
However if the problem persist, TIME to replace old board deck.
God bless you

Lubed belt but display still says lube belt and I cant do anything how do i clear the display I have the horizon gs950t

After lubrication you have to reset your treadmill settings. Then only the message will go off. To reset the tread mill do the following.

1. Hold the "Stop" button for three seconds to reset the treadmill and clear the current workout selection or screen. The console will reset but will save any accumulated data

2. Press and hold the "eTRAK" button for 10 seconds to reset the console date. This permanently deletes any previously accumulated data
3. Press and hold the "Stop" button while pressing the Speed "+" button. Hold for five seconds to reset the console after applying lubricant to the machine. Lubricant application is usually only necessary when you receive the "LUBE" error

Lube Belt displays on digital display how to reset or where to lube the belt.

The message "LUBE" or "LUBE BELT" scrolls across the console display window. The treadmill will not operate while the message is displayed.
Reset the console by pressing the STOP and SPEED “+” or “^” for five seconds.

My roger black treadmill keeps tripping the eletric

This could be a lubrication issue if this treadmill has never been serviced or worn belt/ deck. The last thing I am thinking about is if the unit is turned on with nobody on the unit and trips the the breaker then you have a shorted lower board.
1. Inspect belt and deck. The deck should be smooth. The belt should have a consistent feel from side to side (a belt can be worn out without any sensory signs of a problem). If you feel deep grooves in the deck or uneven wear on the underside of the belt, part replacement is necessary. Continued use of your treadmill may damage expensive electrical components. 2. To inspect the belt and deck visually or to clean underneath the belt before applying lubricant, the belt must have the tension reduced. Loosen the tension roller by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. Do not loosen the bolts in the tension roller too far or the bolts will come out of the roller shaft. This step may not be necessary for your treadmill model or belt and deck condition. 3. Contaminants are the worst enemy of your belt and deck. Some treadmills may have an excessive accumulation of dirt and contaminants. If these are trapped during the belt lube process, significant damage will occur. If contaminant removal is necessary, loosen the belt by following step 2, lay the treadmill on its’ side, and use a nylon brush to loosen contaminants that have accumulated on the inside of the belt. Clean the deck with mineral spirits in a well-ventilated area. Allow the deck to dry before lubing or tightening the belt.
4. Lift the belt and use approximately ½ of the tube by squeezing the lube in the walking area lengthwise. Move to the opposite side of the treadmill and repeat using the remainder of the lube. Use all of the contents of a single container during application. Do not put any lubricant on any surface with which your feet make contact. The lube will spread evenly in the next step. Do not perform this step by hand. The lube is usually not harmful to the skin but has the potential to permanently stain fabric. 5. Adjust belt tension and centering following your owner’s manual instructions if you have loosened the belt to clean. LOOSENING THE WALKING BELT IS NOT NECESSARY JUST TO APPLY THE LUBE. Start the treadmill at 2-3 mph and allow to run for 5 minutes without walking on the treadmill. Check centering carefully and adjust as needed following your owner’s manual instructions. Using your treadmill’s handrails and safety switch for safety and support, walk on the treadmill at 2-3 mph. CAUTION!!! BELT MAY HESISTATE. THIS CAN CREATE AN INJURY IF BELT IS NOT PROPERLY TENSIONED! Within 5 minutes the lube will be preliminarily walked in to the backing of the belt. Damage and/or injury may occur if the belt is not properly centered and tensioned by using your owner’s manual. 5. CAUTION: Do not run on the treadmill until your are certain the belt tension and centering is correct according to your owner’s manual specifications. Make certain that there are no friction.
Go on E-Bay you may purchase a kit or a single application all of them are a silicone base lubricant so don't worry about which is the best. The application will also determine if the visual inspection and cleaning did the job and if the breaker trips then you have a belt and deck issue.

Treadmill slowing down and sticking when you put your weight on it manual says to try leveling screws but doesnt tell you where to find themalso tried oiling but this did no good

Check between belt an deck for heavy wear. (coating worn off deck or belt unraveling) Decks can be flipped usually, worn belts should be replaced. If not check belt tension. Tension adjustment bolts are at rear end caps behind tail roller. If you can step on it and stop striding belt it very well may need a tension adjustment. Also would verify it is striding belt that is stopping. Motor drive belts can cause similar symptoms. {Check Manufacturer For Proper Belt/Deck Lube ie. Wax}
