Question about Exercise & Fitness

Horizon T101 Treadmill squeaks loudly with each step while running about 8 minutes into the run and get's exponentially worse. It also squeaks if I have the machine off and am just lightly bouncing on the deck. Does not squeak while walking.

SOURCE: with every step I get squeak / chirp while running on treadmill.

Check the knob used to hold it up in the folded position. While running, have someone pull it to the out position. That was the problem on mine. If it is, a little grease on the end of the rod should do it.

you need to lubricate the pivot points and deck. Check to make sure the deck is not broken.

My T101 will be five years old in March. Never a problem with it. regularly lubed with silicone, lately the running belt heats up after 30 min. @ 3.5 and will emit a burning smell if not shut down.

Those symptoms point to the belt rubbing on something it's not supposed to. Look for belt material pieces or shaving. Inspect belt and if burning smell is still there, consider replacing it.

After lubing the belt on my Horizon T101 it started tripping the breaker after 5-15 minutes of use. It never did this before I lubed it. Any suggestions?

Step 1:

1) the old board deck belt is time to replace it
2) However you must test a) the main motor see my personal TIPS for motor help b) test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor if there are NOT the board is faulty. see the diagrams attached.
God bless you

Dear Sir:
PLease LUBE the deck belt, is possible the deck is worn!
2) Test the drive belt too 3) Test and lube the roller bearing 4) Lube the bearing main motor. All this parts is subjects to maintenance, see your instruction manual.

Run the software calibration for diagnose, and troubleshooting.

sincerely. God bless you

My Horizon T101 treadmill has power coming in from the power outlet but when I plug in the key it does not start. Please help. Is there a battery on the key?

no there isn't, in fact the key is a magnet plate mechanism but you should try attacking the problem by first checking the fuse which is located at the head end of the machine. If that doesn't work then remove the motor cover and get a qualified electrician/technician to check the circuit board for any possible faults.

hope this helps
