Q:

treadmill runs for minute then slowly comes to stop and when you step off it will start up again 831.291670

A:

That problem is often caused by a weak drive motor or a friction problem  in the drive system. Check the tension and alignment of the belt as shown on page 24 of your Owner's Manual.

 

If the belt is okay, then you could have a problem with the front or rear rollers. Check for friction in those components.

Q:

Proform 760EKG treadmill problem

A:

If the treadmill will adjust the speed properly and seems to operate okay with no weight on the belt then you could have a friction problem that is causing the belt to slow down when weight is applied to it. Adjust the rear rollers as shown in your owner's manual if needed. Here is a link for the owner's manual on this model (831.291670) in case you need it: Owner's Manual . If you still have problems or the treadmill will not adjust the speed properly even with no weight on the belt, then you could have a problem with the console, the power board, the speed sensor system, the speed control board or the motor. If you are able to use this information, you will likely be able to determine the cause of your failure. NOTE: Be sure that you unplug the treadmill when accessing internal components. When you need to plug the treadmill in and check LED lights and voltages, be sure that you avoid contact with live wires and contacts. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on this 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.

The treadmill will not run at the selected speed even without weight on it. It runs at a faster speed than selected. The gap between the speed selected and what speed the machine is actually running at increases as you select higher speeds until the machine is actually running 2.4 mph faster than it should be when you select the highest speed of 10 on the console. Are you talking about using a volt meter to see if the components you mentioned in your reply are working or not? or a different type of meter. If it is a volt meter should I expect to get no reading for the failed part or a reduced amount of voltage? if reduced amount what is correct amount?

A:

Any of the parts that I mention above can be causing the problem. The wiring diagram and the test information you need is not available online. You will need to order the tech sheet in order to get this. This is part number 177326. It will cost about $2.16 plus tax and shipping. You can order it at the link below. This does include all of the electrical requriements need for this testing. You will need an ohm/volt meter to test it. Please let me know if there is anything else you need. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
