Question about Proform Exercise & Fitness
I have a Pro-Form Model 285T treadmill. Seems to be getting noisy when it is running. I'd appreciate knowing exactly what places I should lubricate and what lubricant to use.
Also, do you think the fact that it is getting nosiy means that I have to tighten the walking belt?
Depending on the noise it could be one of several components failing.
If loud clanking or clunking noises these components are Drive Motor, Front or Rear Rollers.
If it is a loud humming noise increasing and decreasing when planting yours feet then it is either the Inductor ( square object ) or the internal windings of the Drive Motor.
Unplug your unit remove the motor shroud with a long shaft flat tip screw driver you'll be able to pin point the problem with this tool.
Now locate front shaft and rear roller tension adjusting bolt ( refer to owners Manual) plug in unit, start unit and touch flat tip on the shaft and place your ear on the handle the noise will be amplified and you will be able to locate the noise repeat this procedure on the other above mentioned components if problem is not found. GOOD LUCK!
