Question about Proform Sport 1000 Folding Treadmill PFTL91205 - !
The treadmill is loose. How can this be fixed?
If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled.
Follow this procedure:
First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud, then 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.
If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described above, 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 Tighten the bolt and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat steps above and retest.
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. Follow this procedure:
First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. 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. Rear Roller Adjustment Bolts
If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley and front roller must be replaced.
Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud. Loosen the rear roller and remove the two adjustment bolts. Some models have a spring loaded tensioner on the right hand side so be careful when removing these bolts. After the bolts have been removed, remove the rear roller end cap(s). The rear roller should now simply slide out of the walking belt.
Remove the motor hood. Using a black permanent marker, make a mark on the front roller adjustment bolt on the motor compartment side at exactly where it fits flush with the roller so you will know where to retighten it later. The adjustment bolt is on the right hand side of the front roller. Then remove the bolt with a 7/16” wrench. then remove front roller and replace with new reverse procedure mentioned above
