Question about Proform Crosswalk 500 Treadmill

1 Answer

I have a PROFORM CX 500 at my home. It used to work fine but now there is a strange striking sound coming out of the front chamber when I run it at a spead 6 km/h or above. And with the sound you can feel breaking momentum of the belt as well. When we run the machine with no one onboard, there is no such sound. How do I overcome this problem?

You must LUBE the roller bearing front and back with WD-40 very well. .
2) Examine the drive belt motor, if are very tight, must be deflection 1/8" other wise the ball bearing of motor are very tight.Tight very well the bolt of motor.

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.

SOURCE: The belt is slipping and making a squealing sound

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

1981 Honda CX 500 A blows smoke out of the exhaust


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on startup is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on startup may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on startup is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Strange clicking sound from my book home edition 1TB. Disk is not visible in any system Mac or Windows.


Is the clicking sound continous? Did the disk fell down or did something else hit the dis? The symptoms are bad for the data you have in the disk... If the sound isn't constantly, leave the disk on the computer for a long time, it's possible to work again....

My 1979 CX 500 is running well but a strange noise seems to be coming from the transmission. Gear change etc is good and I checked all the levels and greased as required before using it after the winter...


The only thing I can think of is a shaft bearing gone bad. Probably the output shaft. Does the noise go away when sitting still? If so that would pretty much limit the problem to the output shaft bearing.

I hope this helps.
Please rate this answer. Thanks!
