I have the same problem with my proform treadmill model 831299270. I starts out at a good speed then slows down to a crawl after a minute or two. The speed never picks back up.

Let's try this to start: Incline the treadmill all the way up. Stand at the front of the walking area and give yourself a slight shove. You should "slide" back about 75% of the way. If you do not then the walking belt needs lubrication. You can go HERE and order lubrication kit number 219170. Then go HERE to see the process to lubricate the belt.

If the belt does not need lubrication or doing so does not correct the problem then you will need to remove the motor hood. Make sure to disconnect the treadmill from the wall before you remove the motor hood. Under the hood you should find a "tech sheet" that has a calibration procedure listed on it. You will want to run the calibration and do the part for speed and incline.

If none of that takes care of this problem then you will need to replace the controller board with part number 184695R. This board is a rebuilt board, I show the original board as being no longer in production.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

@Randy, your treadmill uses a different controller (137858 ) which is still available and in production at this time. If you are not able to correct the problem with the things I suggested to Joel, you will need to get the controller for your machine.

Q:

Why does my treadmill trip the circuit breaker when I use it?

A:

Thank you for reading the owners manual for your treadmill. The reason circuit breakers trip is high amperage draw. The most likely cause for high amperage draw is friction between the walking belt and the walking board it slides on.

You can test this by putting the incline to the highest position, don't turn the treadmill on. Stand near the front of the walking belt and push on the handlebars with your hands to make you slide down the incline of the belt.

If the belt and board are in good shape and properly lubricated, you should slide to the back of the treadmill and off on the floor. It should only require one push. If you only go part way down the belt, you may have a worn walking board or belt. You may also have a belt that needs lubricating.

Lift the belt and feel of the walking board and belt. If they are both smooth and you don't feel any worn places, lubrication should do it.

You can purchase belt lubricant from Sears. The part # is division 22, pls # 831, part # 134591

Q:

I am having problems, the circuit breaker on my treadmill keeps tripping. I tried all options -help

A:

Several things can cause a circuit breaker to trip. It could be a weak circuit breaker. A bad motor can cause it. A dry or worn out walking belt can cause it. Running the treadmill on an extension cord can cause it. It all depends on how often and when it trips.

If the circuit breaker trips as soon as the motor is turned on. The circuit breaker is probably weak and needs to be replaced.

If the circuit breaker trips after walking on it for 20-30 minutes, the walking belt is dry and needs lubricating or is worn out.

If the circuit breaker trips as soon as power is applied, something is shorted in the treadmill.

If you need further assistance on the treadmill, send another email and give some details of what you have tested and when the circuit breaker trips. We will be glad to help you.
