This condition is when the treadmill operates normally without a person on the belt and then slows down when someone steps on the

belt or when the treadmill operates normally for a given period of time

with someone on the belt then abruptly begins to slow down.

There are four typical causes for this problem (listed in order of our experience:

1) The walking belt and/or deck are worn. (85% of the time)

2) The walking belt and/or motor belt are too tight- if you have adjusted either recently. (8% of the time)

3) The motor has lost torque and needs brushes or has demagnetized. (5% of the time)
4) The controller is dropping output. (2% of the time

Test every step.

Everytime I stand onto my treadmill, it works, and then all of a sudden stops and runs very slow. When there is weight on it, it doesn't work. When weight is off it, it works fine. Whats the problem?


Try to clean the dust inside the running belt and silicone them after.

Then try to increase the belt tension. all treadmills have these adjustment.

If it still slip, then problem with the motor.

When I get on treadmill it slows down andjust about shuts off. Im 265 pds, My wife gets on @ 160 pds the treadmill runs fine. I ADJUSTED THE BELT LOOSER AND IT STILL RUNS THE SAME. WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT...


Loose is not the answer. Proper lubrication and correct tension adjustment is the answer. I don't know how many HP the motor is for, but for 265 pds it should be at least 3HP.
Put the speed at about 3MpH and while walking, make a small jump on the belt to ensure that it is properly tensioned. Needless to say that the belt must be well lubricated. If you see that the belt tends to stop when you make the jump, turn both allen screws exactly the same amount clockwise. Half a turn might be enough. When you're satisfied and the belt doesn't seem to stop, give both allen screws another half turn clockwise.
All that as long as the treadmill is capable of handling your weight.

Hi, my Pro Form 470cx has just started to stop when I walk on it intermitently. The belt is running perfectly until I stand on it and then it appears to stick instantly on the base causing a stall in the...


Susan,

The most common cause of belt slippage is lack of lubrication. Most treadmill belts use lubrication on the underside of the belt to reduce friction between the belt and the platform. This helps the treadmill glide along smoothly under the weight of a person. If your belt is lacking in lubrication, it can catch on the treadmill platform. Apply lubrication every few months to the underside of the belt to prevent this from occurring.

A petroleum or silicone based lubricant is recommended, and most easily applied in a spray can. Simply lift up the belt about midway along the platform and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath from about the middle of the platform width to the closest edge. Repeat from the other side. Apply lubricant sparingly...it can be messy.

Next, turn on the treadmill and let it run for a minute, then check if the belt still sticks. A little more lubricant may be necessary.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Belt is not the correct speed when you put ypur weight on it...slows down.have to put on 5 to get a 3 walk?


If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 3 to 4 in. (8 to 10 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, 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 the walking belt still slows then lubricate running deck the lube may be purchased from iconfitness.com

When weight is put on belt it stops. works fine by itself at all speeds


If you can stop the belt. You need to be aware that both running & drive belts can cause the same 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 (adjust back rollers) or the roller has stopped and motor is rotating ( adjust Drive Belt)

How do I adjust tension on walking belt


A good way to test your walk belt to see if it is slipping is to stand on side rails with treadmill running about 4mph and while holding onto handrails keep one foot on the side rail and put your one foot on the center of the belt in a slight stomping motion,if the belt is loose you will feel it slip. To adjust a loose belt tighten each screw at back of treadmill 1/2 tun each until the slippage goes away. Be sure not to over tighten belt as this will cause excessive wear.If the belt has shifted to one side and you need to center it, go to the side it has shifted to and turn the screw clockwise 1/4 turn at a time until it centers.

Treadmill seems to slip while running,


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.
