B) Walking Belt/Motor Belt too Tight:


If you have adjusted the walking belt or motor belt recently, check for this problem. When the belts start slipping, some people just crank

down the belts and on treadmills, tighter is not necessarily better. The tighter the belts, the more the drive system has to work to keep

everything moving. You should be able to lift the walking belt (with the treadmill unplugged) in the center of the treadmill about 3" without

straining. Tighter belts should be loosen but make sure you don't create a dangerous slipping situation by loosening.

The motor belt (with the treadmill unplugged) should be able to be turned by hand to almost a 90 degree angle from its normal operating

position. Loosen the belt if too tight. Make sure to test for slipping

and if it does with the proper tension, replace the motor belt.

The treadmill runs fine until i step on it then it stalls and stops running


There is a motor which spins the treadmill belt.When you start the treadmill, the motor starts running and belt spins smoothly.But when you step on the treadmill, the motor cannot take the load and it stops working.In your case, the motor and motor control board is got weak and this is causing the problem. ---------- Or the other possibility is the treadmill belt, the belt on which you step.That belt should be smooth, there is grease in the inner side of belt to keep it lube and run fluently.If that oily grease gets dried up then belt gets bit stiff or jammed up, when a load is on belt.So get this both possibilities checked.First try lubing the belt internally and then try check the motor and motor control board.To locate motor control board its simple.On the side of motor you will see a electric plug in connector, the other end of that connector gets connected to motor control board.Remove that connector , clean it and reconnect after 5 minutes, then check.In some cases this resets the internal control system and everything, works normally.But its not always possible then removing and reconnecting connector helps.In other cases the motor or control board needs to be replaced.If the motor gets weak, then internal coils in motor gets burned up.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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!

My husky vt6135 ar compressor when it gets near psi setting it starts to slow down. then it stops, but the motor is sill trying to run and the belts squeel i have to shut it off to keep from burning off...


Loosen the motor mounting bolts and slide the motor away from the compressor to tighten the belts. Proper adjustment is achieved when the belts have about 1/2 to 3/4 inch up/down travel in the middle run of the belt. Tighten the motor mounts before checking tension. Be sure to examine the condition of the belts first. Good luck!

When i start running it isnt a steady flow of the belt there is jerks every few seconds making it very hard to run and almost is enough to make you fall what do you think the problem might be


It sounds like you either have a loose walk belt or a slipping front drive pully. The walk belt shoould be tightened so that you can pull up on the edge of the belt about 2 inches. If that is OK, pull the motor cover, start the treadmill and walk trying to stop the belt with you feet. Watch the drive belt this time (the small one going from the drive motor to the front drive roller), if this belt stops, you need to tighten motor, or replace if it is older/wornout. If the drive belt keeps turning fine, watch the front roller and see if the pully connected to the drive belt keeps turning while the roller connected to the walk belt stops, if so you need a new front drive roller.


Hope this helps

Need a belt. do not have a parts list. does it take a belt? stopped turning but motor is running.


Hi. They sell the belts at Amazon for about $10.00. First you should make sure the paddle is not stuck. Take the bread pan out and see if you can turn the paddle by hand. Keep pan out of machine and start a kneading cycle. If motor shaft does not spin then it's probably the belt. Motor and belt is located in base of machine. Make sure you unplug the machine before checking out the belt. Hank

My belt is skipping on my Pro-Form 750


At the end of of the running belts in the end caps will adjusting bolts you will need a allen wrench to adjust the tension. Start your treadmill and turn clockwise a 1/4 turn each time see i f you can stop the belt. You need to be aware that the drive belt can also cause this problem so I suggest that you remove the motor shroud and when you are adjusting whether the front roller is moving and the running belt has stopped or the roller has stopped and motor is rotating ( adjust Drive Belt)

Belt stops when I get on it


This will require a new front roller. The drive belt is usually fine when this happens. Just the roller and the plastic pulley have seperated.
Good Luck Tim

Reebok RX100 won't work right


Sounds like you could possibly have a bad drive motor or something is wedged into the walk belt somewhere keeping it from turning. Check this out. One more question. How long does the walk belt turn for, seconds, before it stops. Is it like 3 to 5 seconds or less than that.
