Question about Epic 425 Mx Treadmill EPTL88105 !

1 Answer

I purchased a used Epic 425. After a few minutes of walking on the unit, the belt stops, but I can hear the motor turning. The belt does not seem to be worn out, but the seller included a new walking belt. Is it fairly easy to replace the belt?

The belt skips when walking or running


Take the motor hood off and set aside. Straddle the walk belt and set the speed to 3 or 4. Take one foot and step on the walkbelt hard. While doing this look at the pulley on the front roller. Does just the roller stop and the pulley keeps turning, does the roller and the pulley stop together or does just the walkbelt stop? If the walkbelt is the only thing to stop it is loose. If the pulley, roller and the walkbelt stop the motor belt is loose. If the pulley continues to turn and the roller and walkbelt stop your pulley is slipping on the front roller ( press fit). Two solutions: 1) replace the front roller or 2) pin the front roller to the pulley. Align the pulley roller to the motor pulley by tapping it into position. remove motor belt by loosing motor. Drill 1/8 hole through the pulley and roller. Take a larger drill bit and countersink the pulley hole so the head of a screw will be below the pulley grooves when installed. install the screw. If you mess it up -- turn the pulley and roller and try again. This is a permanent fix for this problem. You may have a little pulley wobble and that is OK.

Treadmill seems to slip in all speeds when weight is put on it. Changed mother board and checked belt tension all were good. Should this machine be lubed?


Pull the hood off. Stand on the sides of the walk platform and start the belt at 4mph. Take one foot and step on the walk belt hard. Look at the pulley on the front roller. Does the pulley continue to turn while the roller stops? If so, the pulley is slipping in the roller (which is a press fit). Replace the front roller or remove the motor belt from the pulley.Align the pulley with the pulley on the motor by tapping with a mallet. Drill an 1/8 hole throught the pulley and roller. Countersink the pulley hole so a small head screw will be under the pulley groves. Install screw in this hole. This is called pinning and is a pemanent fix. If both the pulley and the roller stop together when the belt is stepped on the motor belt is loose. If only the walkbelt stops when stepped on, the walkbelt is loose.

Hello,

Does the belt stop while walking or running? Does it staop after it has run for a while? Does the motor seem to stop too? or can you hear it running like normal?

Let me know, It is most likley the pully on the front roller.

When i start running it isnt a steady flow of the belt there is jerks every few seconds making it very hard to run and almost is enough to make you fall what do you think the problem might be


It sounds like you either have a loose walk belt or a slipping front drive pully. The walk belt shoould be tightened so that you can pull up on the edge of the belt about 2 inches. If that is OK, pull the motor cover, start the treadmill and walk trying to stop the belt with you feet. Watch the drive belt this time (the small one going from the drive motor to the front drive roller), if this belt stops, you need to tighten motor, or replace if it is older/wornout. If the drive belt keeps turning fine, watch the front roller and see if the pully connected to the drive belt keeps turning while the roller connected to the walk belt stops, if so you need a new front drive roller.


Hope this helps

My incline stopped working a few weeks ago. Now I have another problem, I turn it on and the belt starts then stops.


The motor controller weakens over time because of the excessive amperage draw of the motor do to lack of lubrication (which wears the walk belt and walking deck).

Take an amperage reading of the motor it should be 2-3 amps with no one on it, with someone walking on it it should be around 6-12 amps. I would bet yours is elevated above 6-12 amps.The controller is dropping output because of the friction problem.

The first thing to try after testing the amperage is to lubricate the walking platform. Then retest and see if the amperage comes down and it doesn't shut off.

If it does then the next step would be to replace the walking deck. If the amperage still is up you may need to replace the walk belt second and finally if after replacing the deck and belt, if the unit is still shutting down replace the motor controller.

When I step on the treadmill, the runner stops and


Unplug unit then remove motor shroud the 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.
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..
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 a bolt as described above, 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 If your treadmill is equipped with this bolt (very few are) the repair will only require one person.
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 walking belt slips when walked on. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Hi James
Unplug unit remove motor shroud then plug unit back in , press start and begin walking on the belt normally and try to stall the belt to make it slip ( planting foot to stop the belt).
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. Here is the procedure for adjusting the drive belt.
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.
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.
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 and test your treadmill for slipping. If belt continues to slip, and if their is too much tension ( you should be able comfortably twist the drive belt 90 degrees ) then replace drive belt.
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, here the procedure adjusting the walking belt.
If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn.When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened
If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley. If this is the problem, you will notice it because the plastic will usually make a loud squealing sound on the metal front roller. The front roller assembly will need to be replaced and the drive belt must be replaced also. We suggest replacing the drive belt as well because it is a low cost item and will most likely, have suffered unusual wear from 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.
