Question about Proform 860 Competitor Treadmill
I have Proform model 995sel, please tell me how to tighen the belt.
Unplug unit then remove motor shroud then do the following: 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.
1) Adjusting the running belt if the problem: If the walking belt slips when walked on, UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered.Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.
2) Adjusting Drive belt: 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.
