Question about Precor Exercise & Fitness
Posted by Anonymous on
There could be other possibilities causing the treadmill to stop but one of the most common issues is excessive wear on the belt/deck.
When a running belt has excessive wear, it creates a lot of friction which causes the drive motor to work harder. When the drive motor works harder it will start overheating. If the belt is not lubricated periodically, it will ruin the deck, the drive motor, and cause other electrical problems such as tripping the breaker [after a while, the circuit breaker on the treadmill will need to be replaced.
It is suggested to lubricate the belt every month. At this point, you may need to replace both your deck and your running belt

I had simillar problem. I have proform 830 QT. My trademill stops after 10 minutes of work out. Everything shuts down and the circuit breaker pops out.
Root cause:- no lubrication under walking belt. Caused the moter to over work (over heat) and hence te circuit breaker popped out to prevent blowing of motor.
Solution:- Apply the lubricant under walking belt and adjust the belt tension if needed.
Back ground:- Contact proform customer service at 1-888-533-1333 (http://www.iconservice.com/proform/faq_tread.html) and buy the treadmil cleaning kit or lubricant kit which comes with a wand for easy application. It may cost you 35 dollars including shipping. If you need to fix your treadmil right away, use NAPA silicon spray 8300. Proform actually tells do not use it as it may damage your belt. However the specialst who came to fix my treadmill just sprayed it and collected 100 dollars. When I called proform they told me lubricating will fix it and its my mistake to not trust them. I guess they knew exactly what they were saying.

I will have to check the error code but sounds like a heat problem. When you get too much friction between the walk belt and the deck it builds a lot of heat which creates more drag on the motor. This causes the motor to overheat which in turn usually shuts the machine off. You can let it cool and go back exercising until the cycle repeats. If this sounds like your issue, try lubricating the walking belt. If it's not in bad shape it should make a difference. The machine should run longer. 10-15 is pretty quick though so it make take a couple of application of lubricant. The belt may need replacing if the need for lubricant becomes too regular.

Test very well the controller motor +main motor+Transformer, of course loose cables, bad contact, corroded cables or contact. Tight everything and clean for dust.

It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months or 150 miles to maintain optimal performance. Once the treadmill reaches 150 miles, the console will display the message "LUBE" or "LUBE BELT". The treadmill will not operate while the message is showing. Hold Stop for 5 seconds to suspend message for 5 miles. Your treadmill came with a bottle of lubricant which can be used for two applications. If you need lubricant, contact Horizon Fitness. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon Fitness.
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power
cord at the wall outlet.
• Loosen both the rear roller bolts. (For best results, place two removable
marks on both sides of the frame and note roller position). Once the
belt is loosened, take the bottle of lubricant and apply it to the entire
top surface of the running deck. Tighten both rear roller bolts
(matching up the marks for proper position) to original position. After
you have applied lubricant, plug in the power cord, insert the safety
key, start the treadmill and walk on the belt for two minutes to spread
• Lubricate the air shocks with Teflon based spray.
• Once lubrication is complete, reset the console by pressing and holding 'STOP' and Speed '+' buttons for 5 seconds.
