Asi image pro 2 treadmill repairer

Its possible that the rubber V belt that drives the treadmill anticlockwise via the front belt roller has jumped off the motor 'driver' pulley, or the front roller 'driven' pulley, or both.
When this happens you can hear the motor, but nothing moves.
If you are not a qualified electrician, try the following, but only with the power completely disconnected and unplugged from the wall plug. Do not try the following with the power plugged in under any circumstances.
1. Unplug Power Cord.
2. Remove the screws that hold down the front engine drive belt shroud or housing cover.
3. Look for the V Belt drive and see if it has come off either pulley. It should be a small rubber V belt tightly stretched between the motor (driver) and roller (driven) pulleys.
If it is fine, maybe the motor or clutch mecanism (if it has a clutch) have burnt out or or worn out.
If it has come off, use a butter knift to leverage it back onto the pulleys while gently rotating the Pulleys.
4. Replace the shroud or motor cover with all screws.
5. Only then plug in the powercord and try it again.

Drive Belt Installation for Treadmills

The drive belt is used by the motor to drive the treadmill walking belt via the front roller pulley. A drive pulley is mounted on the roller and the roller has knurling or a sleeve to help it drive the walking belt. The treadmill console detects the current speed of the treadmill by monitoring the movement of a magnet mounted on the front roller pulley with a reed switch or by using an optic switch which monitors an optic disk mounted either on the front roller or on the motor shaft. If the sleeve moves to the side, you will not be able to keep the belt centered and many optic disks can be warped if pushed to the side by the sleeve if it moves, but we do have replacement sleeve kits if needed.

Steps to Replace Drive Belt-

1) Remove the safety key and unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet.

2) Remove the screws securing the motor hood and gently remove the motor hood.

3) Using an Allen wrench provided with the treadmill, loosen the two rear roller adjustment bolts until the rear roller comes into contact with the walking board. Turn the bolts and equal number of turns on each side and keep a count of how many turns you made so you will know how to properly re-tension the walking belt.

4) Remove the drive belt from the motor pulley. Place a screwdriver between the pulley and the belt and turn the pulley by hand. Use the screwdriver to guide the belt over the edge of the pulley. Be careful with the screwdriver to prevent damage to the pulley.

6) Mark the position of the front roller axle on the front roller bracket above the front roller adjustment bolt using a Sharpie marker so you will know where to put the bolt back into position. Remove the front roller adjustment bolt if your treadmill's front roller has a pitch adjustment bolt. If your treadmill does not have exposed roller bolts you will need additional instructions. Please see the troubleshooting section on our website for further help.

7) Gently slide the front roller from out of its mounting position on the frame. Do NOT remove the roller from the walking belt.

8) Slip the old drive belt off the roller and loop the new drive belt onto the front roller pulley.

9) Replace the roller back into its slot on the pulley side and re-tension the front roller pitch bolt to its proper place using the Sharpie mark as a guide.

10) Using the screwdriver, loop the drive belt over the motor pulley. Many Icon units originally had the drive belt misaligned by design (if you can believe it). This was to use the side load of the drive belt in order to keep tension lower. It does lower amp draw for the machine and replacing a side load drive belt occasionally is much cheaper than replacing a motor and/or controller so if your original drive belt was off-centered, install the new belt in the same manner.

11) Re-tension the walking belt.

12) Plug in the machine and check the drive belt for slipping. You can use some automotive fan belt dressing on the grooved or contact side of the belt to help it with grip on the pulleys and it will treat the belt as well. We prefer using belt dressing rather than over-tensioning the belt for the aforementioned amp reasons as well as additional stress placed on the drive system parts.

13) Replace the motor cover and test.

14) Make sure the walking belt is not slipping and is properly aligned and your treadmill is ready to use.

Running mat keeps moving to the left

It looks like you will physically have to inspect the treadmill form under the motor shroud, front roller, frame and to the end where the belt tension bolts are. To see if their anything bent or misalign, this will take some time with good lighting and a extra pair of eyes. You will even have to start the treadmill and watch the entire sequence closely until you see whats happening with traveling running belt. This what I would do Good Luck!!

Belt stops when I get on it

This will require a new front roller. The drive belt is usually fine when this happens. Just the roller and the plastic pulley have seperated.

Proform Crosswalk Dual Motion Cross Trainer Treadmill. motor works great. Rubber on right side under the moving belt has come off so belt slips when in use

I think you are talking about the front roller. It has a rubber sleeve that helps to grip the walking belt. Sometimes you can tighten this enough to keep it from slipping but you run the risk of overtightening and damaging both rollers. We recomend replacing that roller.

My treadmill won't keep up with the time, calories, or distance.I also have lost the safety key,

Most like the casue is a loss of speed signal. There is a sensor with 2 wires that sits near the front roller where the walking belts wraps around. The fromt roller had a pulley where the drive belt goes around the motor and front roller. Look at the pulley on the front roller and there should be a small magnet glued in it. There should be the wire mentioned eariler near this roller.
Sometime moving the sensor at the end of the wire closer to the pulley where the magnet is will solve all ot the speed, distance, etc....problems. If that doesn't do it , it's time for the repairman.........

Treadmill adjustment on bowflex 5000tc

There are two hexagonal screws on either side of the front rollers, and four inset hexagonal screws on the back rollers. Turn it on the lowest speed while turning the ones in front, one at a time. You'll see the tread move from one side to the other. Tightening the screws bring the rollers out, pulling the rubber tread taught, and to the left or right, depending on which screw you're turning at the time. The treads should roughly be the same tension, adjusting both inside and outside front screws for each tread. If you have the dual rear rollers, you'd then have to stop the machine after finishing the fronts and tighten the four inset hexagonal screws on each of the rear rollers. No adjustment per se, just tighten them. If you don't, you'll have a sort of clunking, or clicking noise from the imbalance. The single rear roller is a little different, and the adjustment I believe, can be found on this site:

Good luck.
