Treadmill belt doesn't run smoothly


First of all lubricate the treadmill. If it didn't workout then try to tension the walking belt.

Hi Paula, I know nothing about it, you could lift the belt and use DW40 or vegi spray where it's squeaking. Nothing beats a walk in the park. Greg.

3 different possibilities in my opinion:

belt is too loose, belt is too tight, belt is worn out.

Try to lift the belt and get your hand under it in the middle of the deck. If you cannot reach, it is possible that your belt is too tight. Another clue for this would be the belt "curling" on both sides at the edges. Try to loosen the belt, gradually and testing it along the way.

If on the contrary you can easily slide your hand under the belt from one side to the other, it is more likely that the belt is too loose. The squeaking might be due to the belt not being "square" on the deck. Try to loosen it even more until you can slide it with your hands across the deck. And have it aligned evenly at the front and back. Then retighten and adjust the tracking at low speed.
!!! Do not over loosen as the bolts might come out of the back roller.

A worn out belt might squeak and skip when its old.

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

I have a pro-form 680 LT less than a year old. The belt seems loose, it catches as I run and I about fall over.


The walk belt should be tight (about 1.5" to 2 " when lifted at the edge), if not tighten screws at the rear. If the belt is tight enough then pull the front cover off and check the front roller. Sometimes the plastic drive pully slips on the front roller. If it only stops while you are running and is fine when you walk, i would go to the front roller.

Belt skips


This typically means the belt is worn - or not tensioned properly.

Look in your owner's manual - and it will tell you how to properly tension the belt with the included spanner wrench.

What do i do when the belt skips while u are on it?


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.
