Question about Proform 980 CS Treadmill

Open Question

My ProForm J8li lights up, but the tread belt does not move. I have tried resetting it, I think. I hit the button at the very bottom and it turned the console off and then on. I need to know how to get the tread belt moving.

    I was told to get lubricant, even WD40 and spray the rollers well that roll the belt. I will try it tomorrow. I was told after sitting for 3 years, the rollers get stuck and dry.

SOURCE: Proform 515s treadmill motor won't start

If the colse buttons make a chirping noise when you push them the console should be Ok. If there is no chirping noise with the push it is a bad console. If everything but the speed works it will probably be your motor controller that is bad.

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.

However if after you lube the problem remain, is TIME to replace the deck belt by new ones.
You must test the control board, measure the input voltage for motor, if there are voltage the motor is faulty.
measure the output from control board if there are NOT voltage for input voltage motor, the control board is faulty , replace see the block diagram
God bless you

When starting, the motor starts sluggishly. It sounds different and goes very slowly. At higher speeds, way high, it runs fine. Speed censor says one thing, but tread moving very slowly.


Treadmills are usually made up of various components. The rolling surface (tread) is usually placed on a set of rollers when the unit starts due to the low friction between both the surface (tread) and the rollers the surface (tread) starts slowly while the rollers move regularly and the sensor is placed on the movement of the rollers.
What you need to do is get the unit serviced usually there is a way the tread it tightened to have better grip on the rollers. This method differs from one make to the other so get an expert who knows about proform rollers. Once the system is tightened the problem will be solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Belt shifting/crooked and frayed on Proform 725 TL


in the back of the manual, it describes the adjustment for this. on the end of the platform (near where your belt is crooked) there is a hex nut. the manual says to turn the machine off before adjusting, i find it is much easier to do while the tread is still moving. turn it about a quarter or half turn one way or the other until the tread is aligned.
