Why does my Nordictrac c2300 start and stop?

It could be because it is overheating due to the fact that the floor belt is too dry and the motor is labouring hard to spin the floor belt. When was the last time you lubricated the base of the floor belt (the flat base where the floor belt slides on)? A couple of little sprays of Silicone Lubricant should ease the motor workload as the floor belt rolls on. If you're a big person, the excess weight also tempts to dry the floor belt quicker and if you're running on it while the home is being heated in winter of during warm summer days, or you are training on carpeted or linty areas, all the excess heat and dust dries the floor belt faster and need to be lubricated more often. Lift the floor belt and feel with your hands if there is any lubrication. A wet feel means it is lubricated, while a dry feel or sticky hand as you move your hand left and right means it is dry. Dry belts are the blame of 80-90% of motor failure and or seizures due to lack of care and maintenance. Lubricate it once per month. If you don't like spraying Silicone lubricant directly under the floor belt, do this; find a lint-less rug such as a kitchen drying cloth and go outside the house, spray the Silicone lubricant on the cloth to lightly soak it and then go to the treadmill, lift the floor belt and apply the wet cloth evenly on the base until you believe it is lubricated enough to make the rolling of the belt with ease. Run it for half a minute at slow speed (walking pace) before you can safely use it for running or jogging, etc.

The belt is dragging and sticking...

hi if the belt is dragging and slipping when your standing on top that means you need a new belt, not the one you are standing on. the belt that is attached to the motor. if you start the treadmill and dont step on it i bet the belt runs smoothly. not that expensive to repalce under £20.00. hope i have helped

Belt runs with hesitation. stops during rotation and starts again. like it's slipping

If it does this while you are exercising it is one of two problems. First make sure that the walk belt is adjusted correctly( you should be able to pick up the outer edge of belt about 1.5 inches), if the belt is tight enough, then remove the front cover ( 3 screws at fron and 2 or 3 under), start the treadmill with cover off and watch as you walk, see if the drive belt(small one going from motor to front roller),is still turning after you try to STOP the walk belt with your feet. If the drive belt still turns, see if the front roller stops but the drive pully (other end of drive belt)still turns. If so you need a front drive roller assy. Od if the belt(drive) quits while the motor stays running, adjust the motor, or replace the drive belt.

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.

If I stand on the belt it stops moving

Unplug unit remove motor shroud so you can see the drive belt, plug in unit then start it you will be able to see whether the drive belt or running is actually causing the problem.If it is the running belt then turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise in equal quarter turn increments until treadbelt stops slipping. NOTE: Be sure to run on treadbelt to ensure that the treadbelt does not slip while under load. Use 1/4" allen wrench
If the drive belt is slipping then to adjust the belt you must loosen the adjusting bolt on the motor frame then hold the motor by hand applied tension to belt then tight bolt you should be able to twist the drive belt no more then 45 degrees if you can repeat adjusting process.

Running belt is sliping when on treadmill - is this the running belt or the driv belt problem. I can stand on the treadmill and stop to belt and front drive wheel from spinning - so my assumption is the...

If the front roller is stopping with the walking belt, it is the drive belt. You may be able to tighten it, if it's not too old. The easiest way is to remove the belt by turning the motor by hand while pushing the belt away from the motor. Then adjust the motor back a 16th to an 8th of an inch or so, put the roller side of the belt on the roller side of the pulley, so that you have enough slack to put the belt on the motor. Now, while you pull the belt onto the front roller pulley, turn the motor and walk the belt back on. If it won't go on, this way, you probably have the motor too far back, making it too tight. Good Luck!

The belt is slipping when running on ithas been standing in cold conservatory

At the end of of the running belts2_bing.gif in the end caps will adjusting bolts you will need a allen wrench to adjust the tension. Start your treadmill2_bing.gif and turn clockwise a 1/4 turn each time see i f you can stop the belt. You need to be aware that the drive belt can also cause this problem so I suggest that you remove the motor shroud and when you are adjusting whether the front roller is moving and the running belt has stopped or the roller has stopped and motor is rotating ( adjust Drive Belt)

Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills

Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
