Question about Nordic Track NordicTrack Treadmill, A2550
Most likely it is a worn walk belt and deck. Even if they look OK they can be causing too much friction and making the motor struggle. I have seen a weak motor do this as well as a motor controller . But since it runs fine until you get on it, it sounds like a friction issue. Nordictrack treadmills require silicone lubrication underneath the walk belt between the belt and the deck. It is usually too late for lubrication to solve the problem when it gets to this point but if you lubricate it and it helps, you will know it is most likely a friction issue. Even if the lube helps i would change the walk belt and the platform (some have a mylar coating on the deck you can change and some don't and you have to change the entire platform that has a black melamine coating on it. If this is a relatively new unit then the deck and belt may be fine and it may in fact be a component like the motor , motor controller or even the choke. All parts involved in any of these scenario's are pricey so you may want to have a tech come out and do a diagnostic on it. Amp Draw etc. Good luck
