Unplug unit remove motor shroud then plug unit in then start it observe where the noise is coming from. The best way to check the rollers to see if the bearings have failed is using a long shafted flat tip screw driver and place it on the shaft of the front roller, then put your ear on the handle and listen, if the sound has amplified then the roller is defective and needs replacing. If not then check the The drive motor the same way last but not least check the rear roller by placing the screw driver on the end of each adjusting bolts. If the noise is a squealing noise then it could be the drive belt .Call Icon Fitness to order part their is 1-800-999-3756.

Memory Craft 7000 making terriable noise

the machine is showing it doesn't need oiling or the manual says
it's a self oiling machine?
if the machine is self oiling the DON"T oil the machine.
if you think the noise is from the tension dial,, the try using a can of
air or unwaxed dental floss on the tension dial if you have access
to the tension dial.
or the machine may need to be checked to find why it's making the
noise. the machine may just need some adjustments or a tune-up
depending on when the machine has been serviced last.

I have a 680 proform trainer and the motor is very very loud. what do I need to do to fix it?

Try to put some oil in bearing of motor. For oiling the motor bearing you have to open the top cover. Be sure to remove the power before opening the treadmill. Normally bearing makes noise may be because of insufficient lubrication Or the bearing itself is faulty. Check is the lubricating reduces the noise or not. if not then you have to call for a repair man to change the bearing or replace the motor. un the following link you can fin the motor for your treadmill. Be sure that the power is remove before opening. because all treadmill's motor control circuits are live if there is power.

Oil presure low on start up, rod noise for first 15 sec if temp below 30

You need to switch to synthetic oil as soon as possible! When you change the oil, make sure that you are replacing the filter with the correct one. Some filters contain an anti-drain back valve that prevents this problem. The synthetic oil will flow more rapidly when cold and prevent the epidemic problems that toyota has had with sludge build-up.
Please google: "toyota sludge"

Lifter noise when on start up then goes away after few minutes

These engines did make a little rattle when first cranked. Are you running an ac/delco filter? i have seen a lot of engines make noise from cheap oil filters. they will let all the oil drain out so when you start it has to fill the filter back up before getting oil to engine
