It's making squeaky noises and the area where the long bolt where the handles are seem to have loose washers how do it get it loose to put on new washers because it won't unscrew.


Try soaking them with WD 40 and spray where the squeaky noise is coming from with it ,might be just be dry and in need of lube.

When I get on treadmill it slows down andjust about shuts off. Im 265 pds, My wife gets on @ 160 pds the treadmill runs fine. I ADJUSTED THE BELT LOOSER AND IT STILL RUNS THE SAME. WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT...


Loose is not the answer. Proper lubrication and correct tension adjustment is the answer. I don't know how many HP the motor is for, but for 265 pds it should be at least 3HP.
Put the speed at about 3MpH and while walking, make a small jump on the belt to ensure that it is properly tensioned. Needless to say that the belt must be well lubricated. If you see that the belt tends to stop when you make the jump, turn both allen screws exactly the same amount clockwise. Half a turn might be enough. When you're satisfied and the belt doesn't seem to stop, give both allen screws another half turn clockwise.
All that as long as the treadmill is capable of handling your weight.

It sounds like you have a bad bearing. If you are not familiar with repairing/replacing bearings on a treadmill, I suggest you contact NordicTrak and have a tech come out and repair it.

When I turn on the treadmill, after runinng for a few seconds, the belt makes a squeaky sound, as if it needs to be oiled up or needs adjustment. What can be done to fix this? Any suggestions are greatly...


The best recommendation and the most inexpensive would be to lubricate it. Do not use a silicone spray or anything with silicone in it. You should us a waxy lubricant or teflon based. Most specific treadmill lubricants suffice. If the sound is coming from the front of the machine then I would check the drive belt that goes from the front roller to the motor. These are 90% the causes of the sound. Lubricating and tightening generally corrects the problem.

Hi, Yes it is! the belt is not free floating but travels on a slide. When there is pressure on it ( from someone) it rubs on the slide underneath. When you step off it should stop the rubbing noise. There you go, this should Fixya!
