Question about Proform Exercise & Fitness
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.----------- You mentioned in your comment that you already tried lubing the belt and it runs smooth without stepping on it, so this clears that motor is got weak and its not taking load.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

The motor might have gone bad. You should notice an increase in the current as you put in load but no work is being done by the motor. If you can remove the motor from the unit to do further test and to observe for physical damages. It may just need cleaning or grease may need to be replaced.
