Machine makes a LOUD clack clack clack while running. Seems to be coming from rear belt roller area...

It is probably the join on the belt itself as it passes the over the roller. It could be a sign that the belt is breaking.

I just had my pully belt changed it was making a squeaking noise when i start it up there is no noise but after the car warms up it makes a little squeaking noise not as loud as before but still there and...

Not familiar with bmw, but a squeal like that means that the belt isn't tight enough. Probably didn't get tensioned enough when the new belt was put on.

I have a Image 15.0 R treadmill. It skips and I tried tightening the belt 1/4 turn as directed and not over tighten it. Still skips and actually squeaks now especially when running on the treadmill at 6...

3 different possibilities in my opinion:

belt is too loose, belt is too tight, belt is worn out.

Try to lift the belt and get your hand under it in the middle of the deck. If you cannot reach, it is possible that your belt is too tight. Another clue for this would be the belt "curling" on both sides at the edges. Try to loosen the belt, gradually and testing it along the way.

If on the contrary you can easily slide your hand under the belt from one side to the other, it is more likely that the belt is too loose. The squeaking might be due to the belt not being "square" on the deck. Try to loosen it even more until you can slide it with your hands across the deck. And have it aligned evenly at the front and back. Then retighten and adjust the tracking at low speed.
!!! Do not over loosen as the bolts might come out of the back roller.

A worn out belt might squeak and skip when its old.

Belt is slipping and squeaking when walked upon what type of lubricant should be used

Sounds like the motor belt is slipping. Make sure the belt from the motor to front roller pulley is tight.Once you have that adjusted lube and adjust the walk belt. The squeaking is usually from the motor belt. Many treadmills(Proform, Nordictrack for example) use Silicone lube (lube n walk, or silicone With teflon from Lowes works good) Call the manufacturer to make sure it uses a silicone lube.

There are three belts on my sons 95 honda and we need to change the alt belt, the first one of the 3 of course, how do we go about it

10mm Socket
12mm Socket & Wrench
14mm Socket & Wrench

Loosen the Tension bolt
Loosen the Pivot Nut
Loosen the Mounting Nut

Push it down to the point of relieving the old belt so you can take it off. You might have to carefully pry the alternator down to get it to pivot enough for removal and installation of new belt, depending on rust, etc. The new belt, make it pretty tight, it should wiggle with about 1/4 of an inch of play Too loose it will squeak, too tight it will fail early.

With every step I get squeak / chirp while running on treadmill.

Check the knob used to hold it up in the folded position. While running, have someone pull it to the out position. That was the problem on mine. If it is, a little grease on the end of the rod should do it.

Belt in Norditrack C2000, seems to be slipping when I run, I tried centering, did not solve the problem. I get kind of resistance. Do I need to change belt? what should I do

Most likely it is the Drive belt from the motor to the front roller, remove the motor hood, get it going at 3.0 mph and hold on to the rails, then put your foot forward and down pretty hard and see if it slips on the motor pulley, if so it's time for a new drive belt or an adjustment to it.

Squeak from the back end.

but hoping I could get a little help.I get a very loud squeak from what seems to be the back end of the bike under power. I don't notice it in first gear but 2nd and up I hear the squeak that is very loud. It is not a constant squeak but a jumpy one that seems to match the engine vibrations (as in it seems to squeak every time a cylinder fires) but only under power.I just put on new rubber on the back end last night and I left every guard off and it didn't change assuming that I have guards rubbing and squeaking but apparently not the case.Now what I find to be very interesting is that it is not always there. Case in point: Almost a month ago, I got caught in a pretty good rain storm. It didn't squeak again until I washed it. After I washed the bike, it never really went away until I ride for a while. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that the squeaking never really stays for a whole ride, just the start of it (10-20 minutes?)Is this a symptom of the wheel bearings going or do I have a problem with my belt drive? The bike is a 2003 XB9R and I know that there have been problems with the belt on some (not being strong enough) but from what I can tell, the belt looks imaculate for being 5 years old.Any ideas before I start throwing money at it until it gets figured out?,1. the belt will not squeak, so it's not that. 2. this is hard to figure out online.3. is it while riding constant or during normal/hard acceleration?,,,
