Silicone with no additives makes a very poor lubricant and the carrier fluid may attack some plastics and rubber. You haven't given any brand or model designation so I would suggest you go to the manufacturer's website and if there is no guidance, email them.

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.

I have a pro form treadmill and it seems like the belt is sticking, its about 14 yrs old. I think I might need to replace the belt


kilgore511,

The most common cause of belt sticking or "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.

If you have found this helpful, please take a moment to give me four thumbs up.

Regards,

Need to lubricate the bell of my treadmill . how i do that..?


you will need silicone lubricant with an applicator wand and all you have to do is lift the belt up enough to get the applicator wand under and spread the treadmill silicone on the machine - be very careful that you do not use any other silicone except what is made for treadmills. My company sells this product for $18.95 and it usually will last 1-2 years with proper lubrication

Their might be high friction between the belt and deck thus causing the error 1 code when your husband is on it. Try lubricating the area between belt and deck using silicone lubricant ( refer to owners manual). Then the lighter of the two "aka wife" walk on the treadmill for about 5 to 10 minutes.
This should take care of the problem if not then their is an issue with the belt and deck ( 85% of problems on treadmills are belt and deck related)

Nordictrack EXP1000i stopped in the middle of program


Your drive motor is over heating. Usually caused by friction from the walk belt. The belt needs to be lubricated. (silicone only) Loosen the adjusting screws on the rear of the macine ten revolutions lift up the belt and using a spray silicone lubricant (from any big retailer) spray a light film on the deck (walk board). Retighten the adjusting bolts ten revolutions. If this does not help I would suggest replacing the walk belt. Good Luck, Tim

MY TREADMILL STOPS JUST A MINUTE AFTER STARTING.


Try Lubricating the belt with silicone spray.
Probably the resistence from the belt scraping over the ground board is too high, forcing the machine to switch off in order to prevent damage.

Kettler treadmill "silikon wartung"


Hi eirik,

Your treadmill needs lubricating.
Get a an aerosol with silicone lubricant and spray it under the belt & on top of the ground board.
Then turn the belt by hand (treadmill switched off!) until you've lubricated the whole belt.
Next leave the machine running for 5 minutes at 5 KM/H (3 M/H) without any load on it.

That should do the trick.

It sounds like the tread needs lubrication. Silicone between the belt and deck will correct this issue in most cases.
