SOURCE: client run on treadmill then

hi,
There are two possibilities for this problem
1. Check the speed sensor on near the motor pulley. Remove the sensor and clean it and re-fix it. then make a try. if problem remains then
2. The motor speed controller is faulty. There is an IGBT for controlling the motor speed. If it get shorted the motor will run it its high speed.

Be sure before opening the treadmill remove the power.
ok

SOURCE: Belt is slipping and catching

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

Treadmill runs 5 minutes stops


There could be other possibilities causing the treadmill to stop but one of the most common issues is excessive wear on the belt/deck.

When a running belt has excessive wear, it creates a lot of friction which causes the drive motor to work harder. When the drive motor works harder it will start overheating. If the belt is not lubricated periodically, it will ruin the deck, the drive motor, and cause other electrical problems such as tripping the breaker [after a while, the circuit breaker on the treadmill will need to be replaced.

It is suggested to lubricate the belt every month. At this point, you may need to replace both your deck and your running belt

My profrom 480e threadmill is tripping as soon as I start it.The kids palyed with red stop button. I put the stop button back, but still it trips.How do i fix it.


Hi


Looseness or discolorations of the prongs on the plug or the terminals in the wall or extension indicate a weak connection. A weak connection lowers the voltage to the treadmill and causes the motor to work harder. With low voltage the motor draws more amperage and causes the circuit breaker in the treadmill to trip.

Another cause for circuit breakers to trip is the belt needs lubrication. Check for belt lubrication and ease of movement. To test the walking belt lubrication, do not turn the treadmill motor on. Set the elevation to the highest level. Stand near the front of the walking belt. Push yourself firmly toward the rear of the treadmill. If the belt is properly lubricated the belt will take you to the rear edge of the treadmill and dump you off on the floor. If you move and stop, the belt needs lubricating.

I have a NordicTrack c2200. I find that the tread belt is not running smoothly while running on it. As I run, the belt temporarily stops during each running step, causing me to trip up. I tried to lube,...


There are a couple possibilities.
Remove the motor cover and run the machine.
Check the tension of the motor belt. It may need to be tightened. 2manyhobbies.jpg
Check that the pulley has not broken free from the front roller by stopping the walking belt when the machine is running. If the belt stops, but the motor and pulley keep turning, the pulley has broken free from the front roller.
If this is the case, with a drill and small drill bit, drill a hole through the pulley and roller on the inside edge of the pulley, between the ribs (not where the motor belt travels) and put a screw through the plastic into the metal roller.
Otherwise, change the roller.
Good Luck.

Inspect belt and deck. The deck should be smooth without any grooves, pits, or exposed wood. The belt should have a consistent ridged feel from one side of the belt to the other (a belt can be worn out without any sensory signs of a problem). If you feel deep grooves in the deck or uneven wear on the underside of the belt, part replacement is necessary. Visually look at the underside of the belt. It should have a consistent look. Black streaks in the belt are a sign of bottom-layer wear through. Very worn belts will feel smooth in the areas you normally walk- you would think smooth is good but not in belts because the smoother the belt, the more contact area. Continued use of your treadmill may damage expensive electrical components. 85% of all Treadmill problems are cause by worn belt and deck I would revisit the scene of the crime again.

Nordic Track treadmill trips GFI.


Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the GFI to trip. simple test start the treadmill do not walk on a see if the GFI is tripped in it does trip then lubricate, then if after lubricate it still the you have a worn belt and possibly damaged deck depending replacement price and on what you paid for the treadmill it may or may not be worth fixing.

Sounds like the wax lubrication has finally boiled off the belt the easiest way eliminate this problem is to rewax the deck. You may purchase this @ http://www.gympart.com/ or call them 1-800-496-7278 I would recommend what is call WAX BLAST they come in 3oz or 6oz bottles.
Now the fun part to apply this product you must first get the treadmill and walk on it for about 5min to heat up the deck, then stop the unit with your product go to upper third of the belt lift edge of the belt stick the nozzle between the belt and deck squeeze the bottle approx. amount 1 tbs of wax to the center then get back on the treadmill and walk for 10 min this is to heat up the wax so that belt will act like a wick to absorb wax! This should be done every 3 months or so. Their a catch if this does fix the problem you may be investing in a new belt and possible and new deck. Hope this take of it!!

Treadmill stops running


I had simillar problem. I have proform 830 QT. My trademill stops after 10 minutes of work out. Everything shuts down and the circuit breaker pops out.

Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.

Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.

Back ground:- Contact proform customer service at 1-888-533-1333 (http://www.iconservice.com/proform/faq_tread.html) and buy the treadmil cleaning kit or lubricant kit which comes with a wand for easy application. It may cost you 35 dollars including shipping. If you need to fix your treadmil right away, use NAPA silicon spray 8300. Proform actually tells do not use it as it may damage your belt. However the specialst who came to fix my treadmill just sprayed it and collected 100 dollars. When I called proform they told me lubricating will fix it and its my mistake to not trust them. I guess they knew exactly what they were saying.
