The pulley on the front roller is pressed on. Sounds like you pulley has broken free from roller. The front roller needs to be replaced. A quick fix which I've seen last a long time. First verify that this is what your problem is. If it isn't obvious mark roller and pulley, use machine and see if your mark moved. Sounds like yours should pretty easy to tell. If it is indeed lose, mark where pulley sits on the roller. Remove the drive belt. Take a hammer and gently bump pulley to the side. Apply some super glue where pulley normally sits. Bump pulley back into place and let dry. Replace drive belt and check.

I have nordictrack A2105 and although we "oiled" the belt and replaced motor belt, it still slips. What are we doing wrong?

remove the hood. Turn the treadmill on to speed of 4 or 5 and straddle the walk belt. While the treadmill is running (with good shoes on) step hard on the walkbelt while observing the motor belt and front roller belt pulley. Does just the belt or front roller stop? if so the belt is loose. If the belt does not stop check to see if the front roller stops and the front roller pulley keeps going. If so the front roller pulley is slipping on the roller. If the belt, pulley and front roller are all moving and the walkbelt is the only thing that stops when stepped on then the walk belt is loose. To repair a slipping front roller you have 2 options: 1) purchase a new roller assy or 2) loosen the motor belt and push it to off to the side of the front roller pulley (no needto remove). Realign the roller pulley to the motor pulley. You may have to tap it into alignment. On the inside section of the grooved part of the pulley drill an 1/8" hole thru the pulley and thru the roller housing. (If you drill to the outside portion of the pulley on the left hand side you will hit the roller bearing. Now take a larger drill bit like a 3/8" and lightly countersink the plastic pulley - try not to drill thru the pulley with the larger bit. Using a thin head sheetmetal screw, install the screw so the head is just below the ribbed surface of pulley. If you screw up your first attempt just rotate everything 90° and try again.

The belt skips when walking or running

Take the motor hood off and set aside. Straddle the walk belt and set the speed to 3 or 4. Take one foot and step on the walkbelt hard. While doing this look at the pulley on the front roller. Does just the roller stop and the pulley keeps turning, does the roller and the pulley stop together or does just the walkbelt stop? If the walkbelt is the only thing to stop it is loose. If the pulley, roller and the walkbelt stop the motor belt is loose. If the pulley continues to turn and the roller and walkbelt stop your pulley is slipping on the front roller ( press fit). Two solutions: 1) replace the front roller or 2) pin the front roller to the pulley. Align the pulley roller to the motor pulley by tapping it into position. remove motor belt by loosing motor. Drill 1/8 hole through the pulley and roller. Take a larger drill bit and countersink the pulley hole so the head of a screw will be below the pulley grooves when installed. install the screw. If you mess it up -- turn the pulley and roller and try again. This is a permanent fix for this problem. You may have a little pulley wobble and that is OK.

Treadmill seems to slip in all speeds when weight is put on it. Changed mother board and checked belt tension all were good. Should this machine be lubed?

Pull the hood off. Stand on the sides of the walk platform and start the belt at 4mph. Take one foot and step on the walk belt hard. Look at the pulley on the front roller. Does the pulley continue to turn while the roller stops? If so, the pulley is slipping in the roller (which is a press fit). Replace the front roller or remove the motor belt from the pulley.Align the pulley with the pulley on the motor by tapping with a mallet. Drill an 1/8 hole throught the pulley and roller. Countersink the pulley hole so a small head screw will be under the pulley groves. Install screw in this hole. This is called pinning and is a pemanent fix. If both the pulley and the roller stop together when the belt is stepped on the motor belt is loose. If only the walkbelt stops when stepped on, the walkbelt is loose.

Belt stops running although you can hear motor running. How do you replace front roller pulley?

Loosen off the rear roller adjustment bolts, 10 turns each side counterclockwise.
Remove the motor drive belt.
The front roller should now be removable. If you have difficulties, back off the rear roller adjustment bolts 3-4 turns further. Keep track of how many counterclockwise turns so you are able to readjust the belt after replacing the front roller pulley assembly.
Repeat the instructions in reverse once the front roller is in position.

Hi my belt is slipping. I have tightened it but it is still slipping. I am concerned that further tightening will result in a too high amp draw on the motor and cause a burn out. Does the deck needs to be...


Does the belt stop while walking or running? Does it staop after it has run for a while? Does the motor seem to stop too? or can you hear it running like normal?

Let me know, It is most likley the pully on the front roller.

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

My belt skips but the motor is still spinning. it was working fine but now the belt stops when ever I step on it.

* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!

C2200 belt is slipping How to adjust??

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.
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.
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)

Belt seems to be slipping

As a general rule, the belt should be kept as loose as possible. However, the belt must not slip on the rollers in normal use. Possible overtension can be quickly checked by walking on the belt at a speed of 3 mph The belt must slip on the front roller if you brake the belt with your feet, holding onto the hand rails, while you walk. If the belt does not slip, the tension is too high and the rear roller must be loosened. The belt tension and alignment is done by adjusting the rear roller position with the attachment bolts at the back of the treadmill a 1/4 turn at a time until correct tension attained. T
