Q:

Incline motor does not stop and pushed the rack out of unit 831294150 Proform Treadmill

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your incline motor on your treadmill is not stopping at the correct position. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found instructions on how to recalibrate the incline motor. 

With the key inserted in the console, press one of the incline buttons. While the incline is changing, remove the key. After a few seconds re-insert the key. The treadmill will automatically rise to the maximum incline level and then return to the minimum level. This will recalibrate the system. 
The incline motor may have got hot and shut off or just needed to be calibarated. 

You can also find this information on page 25 in your Owner's Manual.

Let me know if this helps.

A:

The problem could be with the speed signal not being sent down from the console. If you can locate the schematic under the motor hood you can trace the wires and check the voltages coming down from the console when you attempt to start the unit. You may also want to run the treadmill through the calibration procedure (also on the schematic sheet) to see if anything changes.

Let me know what you find with this and we can proceed as necessary.

A:

You can diagnose the problem with the motor controller on the treadmill. Disconnect the power to the treadmill and remove the motor hood. Connect the power and watch the single led on the controller while you attempt to start the treadmill.

I am sending an image showing how to use the led on the motor controller to diagnose the problem with the treadmill.

A:

Thank you for your question. I will be happy to assist you. You should only use Proform belt lube on the treadmill. The part number for the belt lubrication kit is 219168. You can buy it at [www.searspartsdirect.com]. The cost is around $4.00. The application instructions should be in the package, but in case they are not here is how to apply the lubrication. Turn the walking belt until the belt seam is along the top of the front roller. Raise the belt on one side in the center of the walking board front to back as high as you can. Apply 1/2 the tube of lubrication to the walking board in a zig zag fashion moving from front to back. Move the belt until the seam comes up on top of the rear roller and lift the belt again and put the rest of the lubrication on the walking board in the same manner. Turn the treadmill on and walk on the belt for 10-20 minutes. Walk all over the belt to distribute the lubrication evenly on the walking belt and board. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Here is a link to order any parts you need. Sears Parts Direct .

You can buy a kit to replace the mylar (plastic)sheet underneath the walking belt. There are 2 kits, one for a 17 inch belt and one for a 19 inch belt. The part number for the 19 inch kit is 206288 and the price is around $20.00. The part number for the 17 inch kit is 206289, and the price is around $18.00.

The kits come with installation instructions. Essentially you remove the mylar from the walking board and glue the kit on to the walking board.

Q:

I have a Proform treadmill model 535x. The belt motor will not stay running. It is a model 831.294150, serial R04142114. What’s next?

A:

You did a good job checking the treadmill.

If you have a volt meter you need to check the voltage from the console to the controller to see if the console is sending the voltage to run the motor.

Put the console into level 2 calibration. Set the console to run the motor and check the dc voltage between the black and blue wire in the 8 wire harness on the controller.

If you read 1-5 volts dc (maybe a pulsing voltage) between black and blue, the controller is the problem. If you don't have any voltage, make the same test at the console. Sometimes a wire in the harness breaks.

I think the motor controller will be the problem.

Q:

I have a Proform 535X treadmill. The motor will only run for 2 seconds and dims the lights. What part is creating this problem?

A:

I don't think the light dimming are related to the problem with the treadmill. If you are running the treadmill on an extension cord, move the treadmill so you can connect it to a wall receptacle.

It sounds like the speed sensor that is located near the front roller has either gotten out of position or has failed. Be sure the magnet in the front roller is in place and adjust the speed sensor so the magnet passes within 1/4 inch of the magnet. To test the speed sensor, disconnect it from the motor controller and connect an ohm meter to the leads from the speed sensor. When the sensor is near the magnet you should read 1-5 ohms resistance. When the sensor is not near the magnet, you should read open circuit. If you don't get these readings, the speed sensor has failed.

I am sending you the instructions for putting the console through a calibration cycle. Sometimes the treadmill needs calibration.

Q:

I have a Pro-Form 535X treadmill. The walking belt slips. I adjusted it per the instruction manual. It still slips. Any suggestions?

A:

The tension on the walking belt should be correct if you can lift the walking belt 2-3 inches in the middle of the belt on either side fairly easily.

Be sure it is the walking belt that is slipping. Does the front roller continue to turn?

If the belt is properly adjusted and the walking belt is still slipping, the belt might need lubrication.

To test the walking belt lubrication, do not turn the treadmill motor on. Set the elevation to the highest level. Stand near the front of the walking belt. Push yourself firmly toward the rear of the treadmill. If the belt is properly lubricated the belt will take you to the rear edge of the treadmill and dump you off on the floor. If you move and stop, the belt needs lubricating.

The part number for the belt lubrication kit is 219168. You can buy it at [www.searspartsdirect.com]. The cost is around $4.00. The application instructions should be in the package, but in case they are not here is how to apply the lubrication.

Turn the walking belt until the belt seam is along the top of the front roller. Raise the belt on one side in the center of the walking board front to back as high as you can. Apply ½ the tube of lubrication to the walking board in a zig zag fashion moving from front to back. Move the belt until the seam comes up on top of the rear roller and lift the belt again and put the rest of the lubrication on the walking board in the same manner. Turn the treadmill on and walk on the belt for 10-20 minutes. Walk all over the belt to distribute the lubrication evenly on the walking belt and board.
