If the motor is going, you will need to replace the drive belt or front roller. If the motor is not going the motor controller is probably at fault

How to turn on a HS sprint 5050B

I am sure turning a treadmill ON is as simple as A, B, C. If you can't find a switch to start a treadmill, look at the magnetic cut-out button. Most treadmills have a cut-out button that had a string that you attach to your clothing, so just in case you fall off, the treadmill will stops instantly. I would never dare use my treadmill without this magnetic cut-out switch. Falling off and landing on a high speed treadmill can cause serious injuries and skin gashing. And if you can't get off on time while you're being rolled over as you fall it would make stopping the treadmill difficult. Always face the treadmill towards a wall, so if you fall and land on the floor belt, you will be tossed away from the machine. But if you face the treadmill towards the room and the back is towards the wall, if you fall you will not escape the roll-over and will be caught on the floor belt rolling and rolling again until your body has a clearance between the treadmill and the wall. Never play games just for the fun of it or to show your friends, cause treadmills can kill with a blow in the head from a fall.

How do I clean my yoga mat?

If you have light stains on your yoga mat, then using a spray and water try to gently remove the stains. But if your mat needs a proper clean you can hand wash the mat and then squeeze out excess water. Lay the mat down on a clean dry towel and roll them up together, leaving them to dry outside.

How thick should a yoga mat be?

The thickness of a yoga mat is really a comfort issue. Also when you roll it up, thicker yoga mats can be harder to carry. Some people prefer mats that are thicker as they provide better cushioning, so body weight can also play a part in the decision.

  • Place a mat under your treadmill. You can buy a treadmill mat at any sporting goods store and most major discount stores such as Wal-Mart or Target. Treadmill mats are made of heavy-duty rubber or foam and are specifically designed to absorb the vibrations caused by the everyday use of a treadmill. Treadmill mats greatly reduce the noise caused when a person runs on a treadmill, and are especially helpful if you live in an apartment and have neighbors immediately below you.
  • 2 Tighten or replace the belt on your treadmill. A loose or worn belt will cause your treadmill to vibrate excessively. You can buy replacement belts at many sporting goods outlets or directly from your treadmill's manufacturer. Refer to your user's guide for instructions regarding how to tighten or replace the belt, as well as the size and type of replacement belt required by your treadmill.
  • 3 Secure all ancillary parts of your treadmill. Be sure that the rails, console and housing are in place and fastened tightly to the body of the treadmill. Tighten any loose screws or bolts

  • Additional: Level the machine with a good level 2) put a little oil to the shaft of incline motor c) to line up the incline motor

    How do I replace the brush roll on my oreck xl??

    Turn the vacume upside down. Remove the 5 screws on the bottom plate. 3 are near the brush roll, and 2 are near the back. Remove the bottom plate. take the belt off the motor end. pull up on both ends of the brush roll. Put new brush roll on making sure that you put both ends to the new position, not old. ( it is marked on one end, and there are marks on the side that goes up so the can match.)(If putting back the old brush roll you can switch to the old position. After a year or two you can switch the new brush roll to the old position.) Put the bels back on the motor shaft and then stretch and start the belt on the brush roll and rotate the brushroll by hand untill the belt is all the way on.
    put the bottom plate back on and tighten the 5 bottom screws.
