Tread is sliding and rubbing agianst right side of track.

We try to center the tread, but when its on the tread will eventually start to move to the right and you will hear the rubbing of the tread on the plastic.

Make sure treadmill is running when you adjust belt. The treadmill belt tracks as the belt goes around. I usually put machine on 2-2.5 if belt is not rubbing instantly. If belt is already against plastic, turn adj. counterclockwise on the opposite side about one full turn. You can usually move belt with your foot to see if it aligns any with turning on the treadmill. Once belt is not rubbing, turn treadmill on and continue alighing the belt.

I have a rough rubbing grinding sound from my front wheels its in sync with the rotation, it only does it at lower speeds, what is it??

Are the tires smooth or choppy as you look at the tread?
Run your hand along the tire tread,it should be smooth,no high or low spots.
High and low wear spots make a lot of noise on a tire.
Also,as you drive and hear the noise move the steering wheel slightly left and right,if you can change the noise at all then it may just be the wheel bearings.
Don't forget to make sure the metal inner dust shields beside the rotors are not touching anywhere on the rotors..

Brand new bike. when gliding only there is a humming/vibration in rear end wheel or near the pedals

This could be a result of having the gears not aligned, i.e. low front to low rear or vice versa causing some friction. Also the wheel may not be in the guide properly, perhaps askew, so a simple realignment would cure it.
Good Luck,

I hear a loud grinding noise when turning to the left. It is coming from the right front tire and I do not think it is the ball joints. We have tried a couple of basic tests on them.

Check the inside of the tire for signs of rubbing against something. Strangely worn tread, cuts, etc. would be signs of such.

Proform treadmill belt won't stay centered. travels to left and rubs against side

Adjust the tension on the right side rear using an allen wrench. Try 1/4 turn clockwise( should tighten). then run tread mill for 30 sec. to see if it centers itself. repeat again if not. if its to tight then turn the left side in a 1/4 turn

Treadmill adjustment on bowflex 5000tc

There are two hexagonal screws on either side of the front rollers, and four inset hexagonal screws on the back rollers. Turn it on the lowest speed while turning the ones in front, one at a time. You'll see the tread move from one side to the other. Tightening the screws bring the rollers out, pulling the rubber tread taught, and to the left or right, depending on which screw you're turning at the time. The treads should roughly be the same tension, adjusting both inside and outside front screws for each tread. If you have the dual rear rollers, you'd then have to stop the machine after finishing the fronts and tighten the four inset hexagonal screws on each of the rear rollers. No adjustment per se, just tighten them. If you don't, you'll have a sort of clunking, or clicking noise from the imbalance. The single rear roller is a little different, and the adjustment I believe, can be found on this site:

Good luck.
