Question about Nordic Track /proform Treadmill Drive/motor Belt 118016
I purchased my Proform 530X treadmill in 2003 and enjoyed it for a little over a year. I had to put it in storage while renovating my home - no room in temporary living space. It was stored for about 10 months. My daughter tried to use it but couldn't get the belt to go slower than full speed. We tried to adjust the speed, turned it off, restarted, etc. Nothing worked. Quite a bit of time has passed and we still have the treadmill - we're debating on getting it repaired. Now it still powers on and the incline works, however the belt doesn't move (it does manually). It seems like it must be the motor. If that is the case, is it reasonable to say that I can replace it myself. I am somewhat handy and can certainly read an instruction manual. Or, is this best left up to the pros? At this point, is it better to just unload this one and buy new? Thanks gentleman, Sue
You problem is with the motor controller. If everything works but belt want turn 99% of the time it's the motor controller. Call if you'd like more information. 404.456.2327

This is telling me the motor needs replacing. If you bought it new it may have a lifetime warranty on the motor .Depending where you live .

I have a proform 530x that will run fine for about 40minute @3.5 MPH then belt will stop. If I leave the belt it will come back up to speen until I step back on. Then it stops again.
Removing and reinsertijng the key seems to fix the problem for about 10-15 minutes.
The motor seems to be much louder now. I removed the drive belt and let the motor run freeIy and it remaind nosiy. There does not seem to be any excess play in the bearings but the moter was easy to stop using my the sole of my show with little pressure.
On top of all this it seems to happen about 7 out of 10 times.
Thanks for any help or ideaas you may have.
