Question about Reebok 8100 ES Treadmill Save Big!

Open Question

Squeaking noise coming from the drive motor. If facing the front of the treadmill it is on the left side or the non-belt side of the drive motor. When the treadmill is turned off and I manually move the belt it squeaks when pushing the belt in the correct walking / running direction. When I manually move the belt in the non-walking / running direction or toward the front of the treadmill it does not squeak.

Making very loud whistle noise


Be sure to verify if you are getting the noise while you are physically on the machine or with no one on it
Creaking or squeaking while running on the machine usually indicates an issue in your incline motor, deck frame, springs, and or pivot points

A loud grumbling noise getting louder and louder while elevating speed, usually means you have a bad bearing

Any knocking noise coming from a treadmill indicates bad bearings in your front roller, rear roller, or drive motor

Isolate the bearings in the front and rear rollers from the drive motor bearings

To test: Unplug machine, remove the main shroud, remove drive belt from drive motor and front roller pulley

After doing so, move the treadmill belt by itself by pushing it backward or forward with just your hands and listen for any noise, if you get any noise it is most likely coming from either the front or rear roller. To isolate the noise out of the two rollers you must remove the rollers and turn each one individually.

If no noise with the first test, go ahead and start the machine and run it at a low speed. You want to listen for noise, if you get knocking or grumbling while drive motor is running with no drive belt attached then the issue is in your Drive Motor.

A lot of times simple maintenance will save your treadmill from noise, you want to make sure and lubricate your treadmills *pivot points. Incline motor bolt, shaft, deck screws, and or any *pivot points on the bottom of your machine. Metal on metal *pivot points are usually the culprit in most cases.

*Pivot points are just areas of high friction where there may be a bolt, washer, and nut attached to the base of your frame or any hinges on your folding type treadmills. Metal to metal needs to be lubricated to minimize wear and tear of those areas.

Synthetic grease works best or any spray on lubrication works fine if you do not want to remove any bolts or hardware.

Belt problem ...


Hi Paula, I know nothing about it, you could lift the belt and use DW40 or vegi spray where it's squeaking. Nothing beats a walk in the park. Greg.

How do you lube the deck belt


use a good silicon spray. it goes under the belt between the belt and walking deck. apply in a "s " pattern to cover entire area of walking belt.this keeps the friction down and squeaking noises

Squeaking noise from tread


usually when a treadmill begins to make a squeaking sound it means that the belt needs to be lubricated. Try Treadmill Belt Lubricant available at Canadian Tire for $10.99 and is good for Reebok treadmills.

Belt squeaking and hesitating when I run


Before beginning this repair: Check to make certain that the drive belt requires adjustment. Check out belt slipping instructions or with the motor cover removed, walk on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip. Be careful during this test. If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.
Step 1- Find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability. Some models have a single jack bolt and others have an auto tensioner. Single jack bolts are the easiest to adjust. Step 2- Find the set bolt(s) on the motor. This is typically run through only one side of the motor mount or may be on both sides but it does not run the full length of the mounting. Loosen this bolt(s) but do not remove. Jack bolt models will have flat mounts and may contain up to four bolts. Step 3- Look for a bolt that will tension the motor. If it has this bolt, it typically runs in the same direction parallel with the drive and walking belts. If your treadmill is not equipped with this bolt, skip to Step 4. If your treadmill is equipped with this bolt (very few are) the repair will only require one person. Using 2 7/16" wrenches, make a few turns to this bolt, tighten the bolts from Steps 1 and 2 and test your treadmill for slipping. If belt continues to slip, repeat Steps 1, 2, & 3. If a second attempt does not repair the problem, skip to Step 5. Step 4- If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described in Step 3, the drive belt must be tensioned by hand. While one person applied increased tension to the drive belt, the other person should tighten the motor set bolt(s) that are described in Step 2. Tighten the bolt from Step 1 and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat Steps 1, 2, & 4 and retest. If problem persists, skip to Step 5. Step 5- If you have arrived at this step, let's make sure you have a drive belt tension problem. With the motor cover removed, walk on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip. Be careful during this test. If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. the problem. Another possibility is that the drive belt has worn down. In some cases, belt dressing may help correct the problem. If not, the drive belt must be replaced. Step 6- The belt should be able to be turned by hand at approximately a 90 degree angle from its normal operating position

Ironman Triad motor cover will not come off


To remove the motor cover (#19 from parts list), you have to remove the follow items first:
- Left and right fenders (#20 and #21 from parts list)
- Left and right sideboard covers (#49 and #50 from parts list)

There are 4 screws holding the cover - 2 at the front and 1 on each side. Be careful when you lift the cover, the circuit breaker cable is attached to the cover.

Finally, you may want to reconsider doing that. There is nothing under the cover that requires maintenance. The big *** motor is driving the front tread roller through a belt. The roller has sealed bearings that do not require oil.
