Question about Proform Crosswalk 500 Treadmill

1 Answer

Bought mine at second wind 10 years ago. The motor still works great but the belt is loose, I believe because as I walk on it, speed will increase if I step on the outer edges of belt as opposed to walking in the center. I did not get an owners manual with it so howe can I get a manual where I can find adjustment instructions of belt. Thank You

The belt won't start on my treadmill. the speed is already at 0.5 when you turn it on instead of zero. everything starts going and speed can be increased but belt doesn't move......


Hi there, I think I can help. Now depending on model year the Horizon T500 can use a couple different motor control boards, most all of which are fixed at jatinah electronics which you can find with a Google search. It sounds like a failed control board fixed for 99 or less and exchanges available with returned cores. Good luck

Treadmill Speed Increases on its Own


Test the speed sensor with a meter. If that tests ok then you will need to replace the motor controller and walking belt.

You should not adjustthese since they are preset. Tension can be affectedslightly by adjusting the tension of the walking belt but if you have a slippingproblem, the drive belt will require replacement. If yourdrive belt is too loose, it will slip on the front roller pulley or the motorpulley. If it is too tight, it will increase your amp draw to the point thatyou may have an electronics or motor problem. Due to this, it is better to beon the safe side and replace a drive belt rather than riskover tightening it. A drive belt is usually $29.99 or less while many parts youcan damage by over tightening can be more than $300.Additionally, too much tension can cause bearing failure in the motor and thefront roller and front roller pulley failure. It is better to err onhaving the belt a little too tight rather than too loose due to the possibilityof injury if the belt slips. Motor Belt Adjustment-Icon Units Do not remove any of themounting bolts to the motorthese repairs will require 2 9/16" wrenches andmayrequire two people to accomplish the repairs Before beginning this repair: Check to make certain that the drive belt requiresadjustment. 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 theproblem is in the drive belt, eitherthe drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop whenstalled. If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when thewalking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on thefront roller. If the drive belt continues to turn but the frontroller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley.If You need further assistance, please reach me, sincerely. G-d Bless you.

My treadmill work fine when i turn it on but when i step on it the blet. slows down to crawl.


What make/model is the treadmill? What speed does this behavior occur? Does the walking belt slip, while the motor and rollers continue to turn? If the walking belt is slipping then the motor belt needs to be tightened. If the walking belt slows with your weight on it, does this happen at 1-3 mph and still occur at 4-5 mph? It could be your body weight causing it to slowdown, try to increase the speed to 4 or 5 and see if it still happens. If so, is the treadmill rated for your body weight? Please be more specific.

We have a 600 mx and the pad is not working, the only button working is the start, i cannot increase speed or incline it either.


It is very unusual to have no incline or walking belt operation..
Try entering diagnostic mode and do a calibration. The instructions are found under the motor cover on a tech sheet.
1: with the safety key removed, press stop and speed up simultaniously.
2: Attach the magnetic safety key.
3: press stop 1 time.
4: at this time, by pressing the incline up, the incline should calibrate, going up to maximum then back to minimum..
5: press the speed up key, you will see the numbers on the console increase. The machine should start moving the walking belt around 25-30 on the display. At 85 the belt should be running at maximum speed.
6: press speed down, the machine should stop.
7: remove the safety key. Now replace the safety key and try the machine again.If any of this procedure didn't work, I would suspect a defective console. Otherwise, the motor controller may need replacing.
Good Luck

My treadmill belt keeps slipping, i cannot run on it without feeling like i'm going to fall down.


Your unit has likely one of 2 problems. It most likely needs a new motor belt installed. The micro V belt can be ordered from ICON for about $20. The other possibility is the walking belt tension is too loose. Lift up the edge of the walking belt firmly in the middle and you should be 2-3 inches above the walking board. Don't overtighten the rear roller screws to increase the tension beacause it will make the motor work harder and if it is a worn motor belt, the extra tightening won't make much of a difference.

I started up my treadmill after a year sabbatical :) to find that it stops abruptly when I increase the speed above 4 and then when I restarted it as soon as I stood on the belt the motor lagged & then...


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 adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift the edges 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 run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Belt is slipping


This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

Central heat and air


Without knowing more information:

1. The evaporator coil could be frozen blocking air flow.
2. Dirty air filters will block air flow.
3. If it has a 2 or 3 speed motor, the highest speed should be used by the AC setting. It could be a wiring issue here. You
didn't state if this is a new problem or has it always been this way.
4. If it's a belt driven blower, the belt could be slipping.
5. If its belt driven, you might have an adustable pully on the motor, if so it needs to be screwed in as far as possible for max speed.

I had the same issue years ago. It was like that from the day I bought the house. Mine is belt driven, so I simply bought a larger pully for the motor, thus making the squirl cage spin faster, and I get plenty of air flow now.

That's about all I got for Ya...
