Q:

how to replace v belt in proform xp 160. model # 831286450. How to take off step by steop instruction please. Thanks

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your treadmill. Remove the left side pedal arm by pulling the adjustment knob out and removing the c-clip behind the knob. Remove the screws and remove the left side hub cover and the left side pedal disc. This will allow you to access the belt. I was able to locate a video what will show you how to do this. Please click on this link to view it: Elliptical Belt Replacement. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on the link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. Click on "Get Started" and follow the directions, click on the red "NEXT" button to continue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Q:

How do I get to the flywheel bearings to replace them? 831286450 Proform Pro-form 160

A:

I did not have direct access for instructions on your model number. So I did a general search under the heading "elliptical bearings" and found a full page of information. I have provided that in the link below. Review this data while you are waiting for an expert to respond with more detailed information. I hope this helps you and have a nice afternoon.

The cranks have to come off in order to access the bearings. You will need to check with a local bicycle shop to see if they have a crank removal tool to get the crank arms off of your machine. Once the crank arms are removed, everything else can be taken off and the bearings can then be replaced.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Wade B, Thanks, and maybe your answer still applies, but this does not have anything to do with the crank or pedaling. This is where the belt pulley and the flywheel are located. I just need to know how to remove the small belt pulley, then I will be able to get the flywheel and shaft out and then I can replace the bearings. So how do I get the pulley off, do I just pry it off? Thanks. Tom

A:

You'll still need to remove the crank arms to be able to remove the covers to access the belt and pulleys. Rather, it is shown in the drawings as if everything is under the covers. The small pulley itself is shown to be held on with a bolt and washer. The bolt most likely had thread lock put on it at the factory so it will take quite a bit of force to get it to come out.

Hello,

I would like to assist you with the noise in your elliptical. If you would like, reply with your model number and I will provide a diagram if the elliptical with areas that are likely to make noise indicated. The elliptical does have a low parts count and is quite robust, but there are things that can go wrong. When does the rattling occur? Is it constant or does it specifically happen during a pedal stroke? The more information that I have on the noise and possibly what area it is coming from, the better.

I look forward to your reply.

Hi, I guess I could have been more specific. The model # is 831.28645.0. The noise seems to come from front lower left, if you are on the machine. It sounds like the fly wheel is wobbling/ rattling. It occurs when in use. It made this noise before and went away and now has returned. The longer you pedal the louder the noise will eventually get.

Hello Cynthia,

Thank you for the response, I have prepared a diagram with the potential problem areas to inspect. There are bolts that hold the main flywheel assembly together and I think that is the place to start. If you look closely at the diagram, you can see the shrouds will come off, or at the very least can be moved for inspection. It may be a good idea to have someone else slowly use the elliptical and watch and listen closely and carefully for the exact source of the noise. Use caution to not get caught or pinched in the moving parts.

If you would prefer, [ Sears Home Services | http://services.sears.com/shs/category/repair?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch ] is a direct link to arrange a Sears technician to come and diagnose and repair your elliptical. You may also call 800-469-4663.

Please let me know what you find and I'll be happy to assist you further.

Cynthia, Ours has made that noise for a while. Like a loud letal banging sound repeatedly. That is from the flywheel being loose and banging against the frame. Our fix will be to replace the bearings in the frame where the flywheel is located. If you take the plastic side covers off, you will probably see a lot of black dust on the frame and floor. The flywheel will appear a littler wobbly, but once you remove the belt, it will apear to be really loose. I believe your bearings are bad. Parts may be in the $50 range, but you proabably need some mechanical ability to fix it. Good luck. Tom
