Question about Proform 650 Crosstrainer Treadmill
Your unit has likely one of 2 problems. It most likely needs a new motor belt installed. The micro V belt can be ordered from ICON for about $20. The other possibility is the walking belt tension is too loose. Lift up the edge of the walking belt firmly in the middle and you should be 2-3 inches above the walking board. Don't overtighten the rear roller screws to increase the tension beacause it will make the motor work harder and if it is a worn motor belt, the extra tightening won't make much of a difference.

B) Walking Belt/Motor Belt too Tight:
If you have adjusted the walking belt or motor belt recently, check for this problem. When the belts start slipping, some people just crank
down the belts and on treadmills, tighter is not necessarily better. The tighter the belts, the more the drive system has to work to keep
everything moving. You should be able to lift the walking belt (with the treadmill unplugged) in the center of the treadmill about 3" without
straining. Tighter belts should be loosen but make sure you don't create a dangerous slipping situation by loosening.
The motor belt (with the treadmill unplugged) should be able to be turned by hand to almost a 90 degree angle from its normal operating
position. Loosen the belt if too tight. Make sure to test for slipping
and if it does with the proper tension, replace the motor belt.
