Tredmill stop when walking


Hi,
Try to tension the Walking belt. If the walking belt is not in tension then the belt will stop when you step on it. Watch the video to find how to tension the walking belt. Every treadmill follows the same procedure.

While using my Nordictrack a2550 this morning, the walking belt began to slip very badly. I checked the alignment and adjusted the tension of the belt as per the user's manual but the belt stills slip...


if it really is the walking belt that is slipping keep tightening the adjustment screws till the belt will not slip when you try to stop it ( set speed to about 3 and then with your foot try to stop belt from spinning - you should be able to make the motor and whole machine come to a stop ) make sure it is really walk belt spinning and it isnt the motor belt slipping. (if it is motor belt slipping when you try to do the stop the belt trick i just described you will see the walk belt and front roller stop but still hear the motor turning) once you get walk belt tight enough so it doesnt slip then you can worry about keeping the belt centered.

let me know if you need more help on this and let me know how the stop the belt test went

good luck!

Belt is slipping and I need to know what maintenance I should be doing on this model as I have no manual for it.


Hello, There is no maintenace required. Some people like to oil the walk belt, The manual say to do this annually. To do this you loosen the walk belt and applty some synthetic oil to the walk board under the walk belt, then tighten the belt and the belt will distribute the oil where it needs to go. As far as the walk belt, just make sure that is stays in the center of the walk board. Now your front roller and drive belt. The roller does not get serviced, it has perminently sealed bearings. The drive belt usually lasts for many years, if you remove the motor hood and see alot of black dust, it will be the belt. At that point you need to see why it is comming apart/rubbing. After you determine that, you would want to replace it.

The slipping you are describing could be the drive belt slipping on the front roller or the drive pully on the front roller. To find out you need to remove the motor hood nad get on it and look. What you will be watching is the drive belt as it goes from the drive motor to the drive pully. When you try to stop the walk belt you will either stop the drive belt or stop the walk belt. If you stop both, the drive belt is at fault, if the motor keeps turning. If you stop the motor, the motor or the controller is bad. If you stop the walkbelt and not the drivebelt you have a bad drive pully on the front roller, and need to replace the front roller. When you do this you need to remove the drive belt, this is a ggod time to replace it.



Hope this helps, rate my solution if it helped you. Thanks, Matt

My pro form 380 stops while I am walking


Either the walk belt is loose or the front roller pully has spun. In order to determine which one, you need to remove the moter cover and watch the drive belt and front roller while you walk, try to stop the belt and see which one stops. If the walk belt stops and the front drive roller keeps turning, then you need to put a couple of turns on the rear allen bolts. If the roller stops when the walk belt stops, see if the drive belt(small one going to the motor) stops as well. If the drive belt turns fine,but the walk belt and the front roller stop, you need to replace the front roller, because the plastic pully that is connected to the roller, is pressed on and cannot be tightened.


Hope this helps

When I step on the treadmill, the runner stops and


Unplug unit then remove motor shroud the walk on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip. Be careful during this test. If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled.
Find the set bolt(s) on the motor. This is typically run through only one side of the motor mount or may be on both sides but it does not run the full length of the mounting..
Look for a bolt that will tension the motor. If it has this bolt, it typically runs in the same direction parallel with the drive and walking belts. 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(s) that are described in Step If your treadmill is equipped with this bolt (very few are) the repair will only require one person.
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.
If the walking belt slips when walked on. Using the allen wrench, 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 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.

When walking in my Bow Flexn as in regular treadmill mode it feels like it slips under my one foot sometimes any clue as to why ?


If belt hesitates or slips when walking on unit it may be caused by either a loose walking belt or a loose drive belt. To determine the cause perform the following test: Stand beside Tread-Climber® fitness machine and set speed to 2 MPH. Step on one treadle and attempt to stop movement. If one belt stops but roller at rear and other belt continue to turn walking belt tension should be adjusted. If both belts stop but motor is still turning the drive belt tension should be adjusted.
Adjust walking belt tension at the front of the unit using the provided hex wrench on the exposed adjustment bolts located on each side of each front roller. Be sure to adjust both bolts on each roller the same amount as to not disrupt belt alignment. Tighten (turn clockwise) each adjustment bolt in full turn increments. After each adjustment, restart unit and check to see if belt slippage has been eliminated. Repeat if necessary.

I need to tighten the belt, it keeps slipping while walking on it


Unplug unit then remove motor shroud then do the following: If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. 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. If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.

1) Adjusting the running belt if the problem: If the walking belt slips when walked on, UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler 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. 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.
2) Adjusting Drive belt: 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. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust.

After walking about 15 seconds the belt slows way down and stops completely.


The walking belt slows when walked on the walking belt maybe overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged or the opposite the drive and /or running belt may need tightening. Last thing would be that the belt needs lubrication to be applied between belt and deck.

When i walk on it the belt sticks in places and i cant let go of the rails


If your belt is sticking there are 2 possible causes. Either the walking belt itself is loose or the drive belt. The way to check is look at the front roller when you step on the walking belt. If the walking belt stops, but the front roller continues to spin, the walking belt is loose and needs tightened. If the front roller stops when you step on the walking belt, then the drive belt needs tightened or replaced. The walking belt can be tightened fairly easily, there are bolts at the rear of the machine that adjust the rear roller. The drive belt is a little more involved and requires removing the motor hood. Check to see what the front roller is doing and I'll help you further.
