Walking surface of TR1 has become noisy


Noisy in what way, when in a inclined? How fast are you running? Many things can make a deck be noisy. First, go to home depot and buy silicon spray.

As soon as I step on the belt it quits running


You will hard pressed to believe this but the walk belt is most likely bad creating too much friction. If the walk board is grooved under the belt it must be replaced. If the walk board is smooth and glossy leave it alone. I have seen this issue with a slightly used newer treadmill.

I have a Pro-From Crosstrainer xp 580s, walking on the belt isn't smooth and it makes a squeeking noise


You need to adjust the roller tension, The adjustments are at the sides of the treadmill by the rear roller. Sometimes there is a cover over them.

Smooth fitness treadmill beeps every two minutes


Walk on a treadmill to calculate distance.
Most electronic treadmills allow you to program for an alarm or beep when you've walked a certain distance.
Try to turn off reading your owner manual.
And check if there are some error code?.

If you do not have owner manual go to this web:

We just bought a gently used Lifestyler Expanse 1500 treadmill today; it turns on & runs nice & smoothly...until we walk on it. When we start walking on it, it wants to slow down & we feel like...


From the manual: Troubleshooting
Symptom: The walking belt slows when walked on
a. If an extension cord is needed, use only a 14-gauge general purpose cord of five feet or less in length.
b. If the walking belt is over-tightened, the treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may be permanently damaged. Remove the safety key and UNPLUG the power cord. Using the 3/16" allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts counterclockwise. 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3-4 inches off the walking platform. The center of the walking belt should just touch the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert safety key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.
c. If problem persists, contact customer service.

Too noisy problem which is annoying during exercise.


The make and model of the treadmill would help. Your treadmill has 100's of moving parts so the noise can be coming from anywhere. Suggest starting the treadmill with no one on it. Does it still make the noise? If so from where? No noise? Then has someone walk on the treadmill and try and isolate the noise. You may need to remove the motor hood.

The belt on the treadmill is sticking when i get on it but not if its just running on its own.


UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches above the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened

How do I repair the seam of the walking belt? There is about a 5" wide seam on the walking belt and one end has come undone (about a 1/2 inch. It catches each revolution & I'm afraid that it is going...


Be extremely careful when trying to trim a belt. Understand that many hazards exist when performing these steps that can result in serious injury. If you have any question whether you can perform these steps or not, please call a professional and do NOT attempt this repair.
There are two methods that can be used to trim a walking belt when it has developed a tattered edge:
1) Remove the belt from the treadmill for trimming.
a) All walking belts are cut at some point during their life, whether in manufacturing or later during service, so this will not compromise the integrity of the belt as long as you cut a straight line and do not leave a rough edge.
b) Remove the walking belt from the treadmill, lay the belt flat and even on the ground, and measure and equal distance on each end of the belt and mark the belt for cutting on each end of the belt. Cut no more than necessary to restore a smooth edge.
c) Use a piece of flat steel or other metal object that is straight and long enough and connect the two markings on the belt with the metal object.
d) Using a new razor knife, box knife, or similar instrument, cut the belt along the steel object. If the knife has a new edge, you should cut through the belt in one or two passes of the knife.
e) Check the belt for a smooth edge and reinstall the belt.

2) Cut the belt while it is mounted on the treadmill. This method should only be considered by those who are familiar with treadmills and very good with tools. This can be a dangerous process.
a) Track or center the belt off center to the opposite side of the tattered edge (i.e.- if the belt is tattered on the right side, track the belt off centered to the left side by about 1/2 to 3/4").
b) Operate the treadmill at a very slow speed. Usually 1.0 or 1.5 MPH will be sufficient.
c) Using both hands, line a new razor knife up on the tattered side of the belt. Make sure to cut no more than necessary to make a smooth edge.
d) With the belt moving and using both hands, lift the knife up and contact the belt making sure to hold the knife steady and keeping your hands and clothing as free from the moving roller as possible. You will not damage the roller to the point where it will hurt the operation of the treadmill.
e) Do not lower the knife until you see the belt separate from the tattered edge. Once this happens, turn the treadmill off, unplug the treadmill, and cut the tattered strip off the treadmill.
f) Track or center the belt and operate normally.
