Question about Stamina Products InMotion Treadmill
While running on the treadmill there is always a loud grinding type noise. Do I need a new belt or is an adjustment I need to make somewhere?
Probablt don't need a new belt. You need to isolate noise. Listen and look for any signs of rubbing in the area that noise is comming from.

ALWAYS UNPLUG & Remove the hood or motor cover. There's probably anywhere from 2 to 8 screws. *Now vacuum the dust from around the motor and drive mechanisms. What you can't get to with the vacumn, use a small cloth or brush. A clean motor doesn't become clogged and overheat. *After you have cleaned around the motor, look for any grease fittings, these are usually found on commercial grade units, but your's might have some also. For those of you who have never seen one, they are about the size of a pencil eraser and have a hole in the end. they are usually found on bearings. If you don't have a grease gun you can buy a small gun and grease at your local auto parts store for less than $10.00.If your unit is chain driven, clean the chain of excess dust, and apply a small amount of grease to the chain, also grease the drive chain and elevation chain as necessary. Use white lithium grease if available.Check all drive belts for wear, look for cuts and nicks, and replace as needed.
*Raise the belt and inspect the underside for wear. If it looks worn or burned you need to replace the belt.
*Wipe the deck and underside of the belt with a soft cloth, should lubricate the walking deck at least every 6 months with ilicone spray or gel or wax. Check your owners manual for what the manufacturer recommends.
Repair of Your Treadmill
Walking belt moves, but there is a loud grinding noise.
Loosen the belt and see if the noise goes away, if it does you may have a bad front roller. Sometimes you can spray the bearing in the roller with a lubricant like WD40 and this will solve the problem, but you may need to replace the roller.If the noise does not go away then the motor bearings are probably bad and you will have to replace the motor.
