Question about Proform Sport 1000 Folding Treadmill PFTL91205 - !
I recently found the manual and discoverred how to center the belt using the adjustment screws. However, now there is a fold on the left side. I tried to rectify it by unfolding it as it runs on the slowest speed but although it goes into the bottom of the deck straight it emerges from the top folded over.
It seems that the top of the belt has become somewhat disconnected from the backing on the left where the problem manifests itself. I hope I don't need to order a new belt.

it to the floor. CAUTION: Do not grip only the plastic

Hello there, If you stand behind the machine you should see the safety latch mechanism (round knob on the long section in the middle when the unit is raised) You will need to push up slightly on the walking belt section while pulling out the knob located on the safety rod. While pulling out the knob lower the unit about 3 inches and then release the knob. If you release the knob too soon it will catch back in the hole again. This should release the unit.
Good Luck! Tim

Before folding the treadmill, adjust the incline to the lowest position. If you do not do this, you may damage the treadmill when you fold it. Remove the key and unplug the power cord. CAUTION: You must be able to safely lift 45 lbs. (20 kg) to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.
Hold the metal frame firmly in the location shown by the arrow at the right. CAUTION: To decrease the possibility of injury, do not lift the frame by the plastic foot rails. Make sure to bend your legs and keep your back straight as you raise the frame. Raise the frame about halfway to the vertical position.
Raise the frame until the latch knob locks into the storage position. Make sure that the latch knob is locked in the storage position. To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill. Keep the treadmill out of direct sunlight. Do not leave the treadmill in the storage position in temperatures above 85° F (30° C).
To lower follow this procedure:
Hold the upper end of the treadmill with your right hand. Pull the latch knob to the left and hold it. It may be necessary to push the frame forward as you pull the knob to the left. Pivot the frame downward and release the latch knob.
Hold the metal frame firmly with both hands and lower it to the floor. CAUTION: Do not grip only the plastic foot rails or drop the frame to the floor. Bend your legs and keep your back straight.
