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.

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.
