Question about NordicTrack E4000 Treadmill
Is it possible to repair about a 1/2 tear in the side of a treadmill belt?
Yes you can repair a treadmill walking belt. I used a specialty glue that is flexible and super strong. It is used in aeronautical applications so is very strong. Simply apply the glue to a piece of flat and thin rubber bike tire (I say thin because some bikes have knobby tires for off road and these tires are too bulky to use on a a treadmill belt)....or.... try a patch of fiberglass embedded rubber (tape or fiberglass repair mesh). Do not use a bike inner tube repair patch kit or piece of a bike inner tube as a patch because they are not strong enough. Put the special Aero-flex glue on the fiber patch and put the patch on the belt tear. Make sure the patch overlaps the tear by at least half the length of the tear on all sides. (i.e. if the tear is 2 inches then overlap on all sides by an extra inch which makes a three inch patch total length. Another Hint....put another patch of the same patch size on the opposite side of the treadmill belt in the exact mirrored spot to ensure the belt does not slip to one side...this balances the belt perfectly. Total cost...$25 dollars and 30 minutes. Fast and inexpensive.

No really. You need to replace the entire walking belt. Not to hard of a job and most replacement belts come with some instructions. We use www.treadmillpartszone.com for parts.

No and I suggest to ge a new belt. a rip means it time for a new belt before you break the rest of the treadmill.; you kwill also need to lube the treadmill deck before you put the belt back on.

Although most home treadmills are designed for easy operation, there are some common problems that are inevitable. The console may not display. Perhaps a loose or slipping running belt poses a safety hazard. Maybe the treadmill runs at an unpredictable speed. Those are just some of the things that can happen to bring your workout to a halt. While certain repairs will require the services of a professional who specializes in treadmill maintenance and repair, there are some basic repairs that you can do yourself.
Clean and routinely maintain the running belt. The belt may be worn if the treadmill stops operating or trips the circuit breaker. Look for any tears in the belt. Test the belt by putting the treadmill at full incline. If it does not shut off, you may need to replace the belt. You can try lubricating it first, but the safest fix is simply to replace it.
Tighten the running belt if it is loose. A belt can slip if there is too much friction. Be careful not to tighten the belt too much, though. You should be able to lift the belt at least 3 inches.
Push the belt in the direction that it normally turns. Turn off the power before you start. If the belt is difficult to turn, there is high belt/deck friction. However, if the belt moves freely, that's not the problem.
Examine the roller sleeve to see if it is centered on the running belt. If not, this could cause the belt to move to one side. Often a common problem with treadmills, you can try making adjustments yourself, but eventually you may need to replace the sleeve or roller.
Stop the treadmill and immediately unplug the power cord from the outlet if you notice a burning smell. Overheating could be a sign that there is too much friction or a short in the wiring. Examine the belt and deck for any signs of wearing. If they check out alright, inspect the wiring. Replace any damaged parts as needed.
Check to make sure that the power switch is on if you suddenly lose power. If this isn't the cause of the power loss, unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet and individually test the fuses, breakers and switches. Test the wall outlet first, as a fuse may have blown or a circuit breaker tripped.
Allow the treadmill to run at a speed of 2.5 mph without anyone walking on it if you notice fluctuations in the speed. The speed should be constant. If not, there could be a problem with the motor.
Test the motor using a fully charged lantern battery. The motor should still operate at slow speed.
Replace the batteries in the panel if it dims. If the batteries aren
