SOURCE: I have a Horizon elite 507 treadmill, everything

Unplug your treadmill and remove motor shroud ,locate Motor control board their a series of LEDs . Now without getting on treadmill hit start look down and you should a light starting to flicker this is your PWM signal, t the upper console sends a signal to the lower board and instructs the motor to start. This tells me that the upper board and cable are functioning properly and our problem is either the board or motor.
DC motors can be easily tested in a number of ways. Many times a motor is replaced only to find another problem exists so be sure to test the motor if you think it is a problem. Methods to test a motor: 1) Cordless drill battery- get a fully-charged, 18 volt (preferred) cordless drill battery and on most treadmills connect the red and black motor leads to the battery (some have different colors but if you have two wires and get it hooked up backwards, the motor will just run backwards and won’t be harmed). If good, the motor should operate at about 1 MPH. 2) Car battery- these are 12VDC high amp batteries so the motor will turn slowly but you can walk on the belt. Always be careful with battery acid on these things so we don’t recommend bringing them in the house…take the treadmill to the battery.
If the motor test good then all fingers point to the Motor Control Board replace the board. When was the last time lubricated the running deck?
Answer: Never ! Then I suggest you purchase lubricant and apply it on the deck about 75% to 85% of the problems are belt and deck related.

SOURCE: Belt jerks with each step. At first it hesitated

I have the same problem with this type of treadmill but only when running on it. I usually increase the incline to prevent it. I believe the tension on the belt has become loose. I have been looking for a guide on how to tighten it but havent come across one yet. If i find one ill post back with the link.

SOURCE: change speedometer readin on elite 507 treadmill from mph to kph

I know this is an old thread, but if you are still trying to change between mph and km, then follow these instructions.

The setting is changed by a switch on the console circuit board. Unplug the power cable. You will need a medium philips screwdriver. The console is fixed to the frame with 4 screws, climb under the console and remove 2 screws from the top and 2 screws from the bottom. Get back up and lift the console up slightly making sure you do not dislodge any cables from either the left or right-hand side of the console. Look under the console from the left-hand side, in the middle of the circuit board you will see a small slide switch (silver casing with black slider), slide it to the other position. You will see next to the switch the letters mph and kpmh. gently reseat the console, put the 4 screws back in, the console should now display the speed in kmph when you plug it back in and turn it on.

All the best

SOURCE: Can you replace the treadmill belt.yourself for an horizon elite t5000

Is the belt damaged to the point that it needs to be replaced? You can adjust the machine to tighten up a loose belt. Instructions on how to do this are in the owner's manual.

My belt keep slipping. And I try tighten the ajustment bolts.


Make sure you adjust vthe motor belt first, it may be where the slipping is coming from. You should only be able to twist a properly tightened motor belt 45 degrees. After that, readjust the walk belt. If you have been tightening the walk belt trying to get the slipping out it may be too tight now. Use the instructions in your owners manual to adjust the walk belt. Also, lube under walk belt with the recommended lubrication . That will help the walk belt not too grab and take pressue off of both belts. Good luck

My horizon treadmill belt has started breaking from the edges. How do I repair it


Horizon Fitness sells replacement belts. There is no good way to repair a walking belt as they are a bit special, made to glide across a waxed or oiled deck.

Treadmill says to lube belt, but we aren't sure where that would be?


Horizon treadmills need a silicon lubricant, placed between the underside of the walking belt and the deck board that it slides across. This should be done about once a year ;o)

Belt squeaking and hesitating when I run


Before beginning this repair: Check to make certain that the drive belt requires adjustment. Check out belt slipping instructions or with the motor cover removed, 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. 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.
Step 1- 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. Step 2- 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. Loosen this bolt(s) but do not remove. Jack bolt models will have flat mounts and may contain up to four bolts. Step 3- 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 this bolt, skip to Step 4. If your treadmill is equipped with this bolt (very few are) the repair will only require one person. Using 2 7/16" wrenches, make a few turns to this bolt, tighten the bolts from Steps 1 and 2 and test your treadmill for slipping. If belt continues to slip, repeat Steps 1, 2, & 3. If a second attempt does not repair the problem, skip to Step 5. Step 4- If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described in Step 3, 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 2. Tighten the bolt from Step 1 and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat Steps 1, 2, & 4 and retest. If problem persists, skip to Step 5. Step 5- If you have arrived at this step, let's make sure you have a drive belt tension problem. With the motor cover removed, 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. 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. the problem. Another possibility is that the drive belt has worn down. In some cases, belt dressing may help correct the problem. If not, the drive belt must be replaced. Step 6- The belt should be able to be turned by hand at approximately a 90 degree angle from its normal operating position

HOW DO I LUBE MY HORIZON T81 TREADMILL


Your lube goes between the walking belt and the deck( the board under the belt). Apply lube as close to the center of the belt as possible then walk at a slow speed to spread lube evenly.
