There really isn't much that needs to be done to the treadmill in the way of maintenance other than to lubricate the walking belt. You will need lubricant kit 219170 for this. The lubricant has to be the Pro-Form/Icon brand lubricant. Other brands contain the wrong mixture of silicone which can end up damaging the belt and/or walking platform.

Once you have the lubricant you can watch THIS VIDEO to see the procedure to lubricate the belt. If the belt needs adjusting (tension) you can watch THIS VIDEO .

When you're done lubricating the belt you can check to see if you need to adjust the tension or not. To do that, incline the treadmill all the way up. Stand at the very front of the walking area and then give yourself a slight shove. You should slide down the belt about 75% of the way. If you do not go that far back with a slight shove (after lubricating), watch the procedure for adjusting the belt tension and then do the test again.

Outside of that the only other thing that you may want to do is vacuum out the motor area. Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood. Once the hood is removed you can use a vacuum hose attachment to remove any dust balls in the motor area. Then put the hood back and plug the treadmill back in.

You can order the belt lube (and any other parts) HERE .

Q:

Why does my Pro-Form treadmill belt keep falling off?

A:


Your treadmill has no warranty on the drive belt. Most likely the belt has worn and may be stretched a little from use.

I would recommend you replace the drive belt. When you install the new one adjust the tension so that you can twist the belt 90 degrees. If you can twist it more than 90 degrees it is too loose and may come off. If you can't twist it 90 degrees it is too tight and may cause the mounting bracket to twist slightly and the belt will run off.

You can do this yourself or schedule service and let a technician install the belt. The part number for a drive belt is 118016 and cost around $12.00.
