SOURCE: Treadmil stops or slows down upon walking.

Check both belts to be sure they are adjusted and not slipping.Check the underside of the walk belt to see if it feels frayed in the center as compared to the edges, the center always wears more than the edges a really worn belt must be replaced. if it is nor worn there is a wax lubricant for proform treadmills that can be purchased at retail stores that sell treadmills.Sears, dicks sporting goods and also treadmilldoctor.com are good places to buy it.

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.

The drive belt was loose. I tightened up the motor just a smidge using a crow bar. That solved the problem.

SOURCE: I have a Proform XP 550s and the belt skips/slips

I would remove the hood first covering the motor (Usually 4-6 screws) so you can isolate the problem. Now you will be able to get a good look at what is going on underneath. If when you put weight on it the you see the motor keep spinning but the drive belt stop then you need a new one. You could temporarily tighten it until you replace it but it's probably ready to go. If the drive belt and front roller keep turning and the walking belt stops then replace the walking belt.

On mine I had to replace the drive belt and the walking belt. I went with the cheapest fix first (drive belt which was slipping) then I could still stall the walking belt but had no way of knowing that until I replaced the drive belt.

I guess if it's the motor you'll be able to tell that too by watching because it'll bog down.

Parts at TreadmillDoctor.com for me anyway. They have both online and by phone troubleshooting support.

Sometimes the tread needs to be lubricated. This was the case with ours. You can get a lubrication kit at ****'s Sporting Goods or other larger sport stores and it will instruct you on how to do it.

I need to tighten the belt, it keeps slipping while walking on it


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.

While trying to run the mat/track stops or studders momentarily.


If the walking belt slips when walked on, 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 the edges 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 run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

We have a Proform Sport 1000 treadmill which when you get on it the belt slips badly and it hardly moves. The belt doesn't seem loose so is the motor failing?


There is a belt between the front roller and the motor (drive belt) that is under the motor hood. The trick is to watch the front roller when you get on the walking belt. If the front roller stops with the walking belt, then the drive belt is loose and needs to be replaced or tightened. If you have already adjusted the walking belt, and you can hear the motor, it's the drive belt. There will be 3 screw on the front of the machine, and a couple of screws under the main frame. Tip the unit over to find the screws, and take off the cover. You'll be able to see where the slip is.

My proform 860 has belt slippage and sometimes stops after a few minutes


I had the same problem and was about to change the walking belt. Instead I removed the 5 screws holding on the hood and adjusted the Reed Switch and took a walk. Whenever I stomped on the belt hard it would stop. I Could now see (because I removed the hood) that the motor continued to spin and the Motor Drive Belt was slipping and was the culprit. Something that I had noticed before was all this fine rubber dust coming out near the left front corner where this belt is. If you see that it's a good indicator the motor belt is slipping and needs to be replaced.
