There is a motor which spins the treadmill belt.When you start the treadmill, the motor starts running to spin the belt.But if the motor cannot take the load it stops working.In your case, the motor and motor control board is got weak and this is causing the problem. ---------- Or the other possibility is the treadmill belt, the belt on which you step.That belt should be smooth, there is grease in the inner side of belt to keep it lube and run fluently.If that oily grease gets dried up then belt gets bit stiff or jammed up.So get this both possibilities checked.First try lubing the belt internally and then try check the motor and motor control board.To locate motor control board its simple.On the side of motor you will see a electric plug in connector, the other end of that connector gets connected to motor control board.Remove that connector , clean it and reconnect after 5 minutes, then check.In some cases this resets the internal control system and everything, works normally.But its not always possible then removing and reconnecting connector helps.In other cases the motor or control board needs to be replaced.If the motor gets weak, then internal coils in motor gets burned up.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi robfatbob,

If you're still encountering beeping sound when starting up the machine, it might caused by some changes on the setting. The easiest way to resolve this issue is by resetting the machine. Here are some steps that you can apply on resetting the machine.

1. If the machine is turned on please press the stop button to stop the treadmill.

2. Unclip the wire that is connected to the safety key from the clothing and leave the key plugged into the treadmill. The treadmill can only operates when the safety key is inserted into it.

3. Now, unplug it and wait 5 minutes before plugging it back into the surge protector.

4. Plug the power cord back in. "PO" will appear on the console display.

5. Remove the safety key to clear the "PO", then put the key back in.

6. Put your hands on the pulse grip sensor to test if its now functioning. If it doesn't, repeat the reset procedure. Also check if you still have the beeping sound.

Additional troubleshooting:

1. Some consoles require batteries. Check to see if this is the problem. If the console does not use batteries, move on to Step

2. Check the circuit breaker on the frame near the power cord. If the reset/off circuit breaker has tripped, wait 5 minutes and then reset the breaker by pressing the switch in.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi robfatbob,

    The first thing you need to do is start the treadbelt running at about 3 MPH. A treadbelt naturally wants to be as loose as possible, and will move to the side that is loosest. If your treadbelt has moved to the right side of your machine, then the right side of the treadbelt is not as tight as the left side. To correct this you need to tighten up the right side to the point of equal tension on both sides. On the more common bolt type adjustment systems, you'll want to turn the bolt 1/4 of a turn at a time, wait 30 seconds for the belt to move and turn again if necessary. Only small adjustments are required to move the treadbelt left of right, 1/4 turn of the adjustment bolts at a time suggested. Tightening the treadbelt requires tightening the treadbelt equally on both sides.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

Proform 360p belts slips

Side to side? Or front to back? If side to side, turn the Allen bolts on both sides of the back of the base the same direction in the opposite way of the slip. If front to back and the machine has been used a lot, the belt is probably stretched and needs to be replaced. See Treadmill Parts for a quote.

The board lights up, but when you attempt to push a button (speed, program select) nothing happens. I do however have the stop and pace button beeping 3 times when you touch, but nothing works.

i think your console is shot check connections on the controller board. when pressing buttons, and some commands or none work, its the console

Proform 8.5 ifit treadmill will not start. Power is on all electronics appear to be working, but when key is placed on, the treadmill beeps quickly 4 or 5 times in a row and will not respond to any buttons...

Hello There, Unfortunately the sound are hearing is caused by a stuck button on your console assembly. When this happens you will be unable to select any buttons due to this condition.
The only fix is to replace the console assembly.
If you go to you can get parts and pricing information.
Get your model number before going there. Should be (PFTL788072) and is located under the walk belt on the lower frame assembly.
Good Luck! Tim

Proform 360p stuck on incline

I had the exact same problem.

This usually happens if you switch it off at the mains while the incline is adjusting or is somewhere other than lowest. You should always make sure before finishing off, to lower everything.

Now for the solution: If you open up the case it has 5 or 6 black philips (cross head) screws (use your user manual if you don't have your original go to proform and find the support link and download the .PDF if your model is not available get the one before or after in the same model product line (model number is below the power input)).

Make sure you remove the power before opening the cover, obviously.

Anyway, once opened, you should find a sheet of paper wrapped around in some plastic wallet. On that paper it should explain everything. Try not to mess with too much things in the settings, otherwise you might mess it up badly.

Mine is something like: Hold the speed up (+) button and then while holding the button insert the key - that will get you to the service menu (obviously the power has to be connected).

Once in the menu pressing the incline up does a self-calibration (maximum up and maximum down) after that it should be perfect.

Remove the key any time to come out of that mode and resume normal operation.

I may not find this place for any more replies 'cos i only found this site by accident. While looking for info. on my burnt out motor model: PETL 3013.6 .... But i have come across someone selling a faulty one on ebay for like 5 quids... it's picking it up the trouble!
