Question about Proform 980 CS Treadmill

1 Answer

I have a 980 treadmill and I cannot get the tread centred. I run 5 days a week for 40 mins at 11.5 km/h. However, recently, my tread spends all of its time on the right rail, and has begun peeling as a result of rubbing. Everyday I have to tighten the rear bolts for my run or it will slip. I cannot centre it for the life of me--I've followed instructions here and do to one side what I do to the other... It also now needs significant tightening or will slip within 15 minutes. Makes a great deal of noise off centre. Sort of to the point where I want to have it professionally serviced but don't know who to go to.

Sounds like your belt has stretched to the point where you need a new one. These are typically easy to install yourself. See Treadmill Parts for a quote.

I have recently installed treadmill motor brushes but now treadmill is not calibrating,calibration takes start and when calibration comes to check the slow speed it stuck there and keep calibrating it


Hi There, Please check that you have the small feedback connectors snug and proper. Some treads have them on a front or rear roller and some also have a motor feedback. Or - Try to power down and back up and try to run treadmill normally, not in cal mode, and see if the unit responds to your speed selections correctly. During "calibrations" the upper board (usually) is looking for a specific feedback signal, if it cannot be found it usually stops the tread, but in cal mode it may sit there waiting for it's feedback sweet-spot before continuing. What make, year and model of tread?

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.

Need owner's manual for ifit.com treadmill


1. When walking on the treadmill the belt abruptly stops.
2. As the speed increases so does the noise. Is this associated with the belt tension? Tightening the belt causes the belt not to move at all. What might be the solution to 1 & 2?
