Q:

How to lube the belt on my treadmill?

A:

I added the instructions as it is written in the uses/owners manual. The part# for the walking belt lubricant is 016591-Z. The lubricant can be ordered at Sears Parts Direct. I added the link below that will take you directly to the site by clicking on "Silicon lube".

Thanks James, I did lube the belt and the noise started following lubrication...however your link did give me a good bit of information. I hadn't loosened the belt as directed to place the lube, your link indicated that was alright to do it that way. However, my basic issue of a shrieking noise still remains.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the treadmill. If the screeching is coming from the treadmill when it is running something has to be rubbing. To rule out an electrical problem I recommend walking on the treadmill with it unplugged. You have to manually push the belt with your feet. If you hear the noise when doing this I recommend inspecting the path of the walking belt. If you do not see anything rubbing on the top side look under the treadmill. If the unit has a panel in the bottom it has to be removed. Then inspect the underside. Also check around the front roller. I have seen the belly pan rub the roller and cause the same noise. Once you find what is rubbing make the necessary adjustments. If you need assistance making the adjustments please reply below with what you found rubbing.

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Mark.

Mark, You are spot on. I just got back from the holidays and had the same thought as your post suggests. I removed the top of the shroud because the sound seemed to be coming from the top right of the belt where the roller, belt and lip of the shroud meet. No shroud, complete silence. Of course I need the shroud to keep dust, etc. out of the motor but what to do? It was hard lining up the screws putting it on when I had removed it for cleaning but I had lined everything up doing it. I'm wondering if it had previously not been lined up but still tightened on and if that has deformed the shroud and it's lining up w/the edge of the belly pan coming up from below along the length of the belt. I suspect so. I'm tempted to remove the belly pan except that I assume it's there for a good reason. What I may do is enlarge the screw holes on the shroud so that tightening the screws is not pulling the shroud as tightly forward. I might also stick something in between the belt and belly pan plastic edge to pull it further out from the belt and leaving it in place for a day or two to 'deform' the plastic edge so it isn't so close to the belt. I don't think the edge serves a purpose as far as holding the belt in place in some way and I am pretty certain that it's actually touching the belt while in motion is not beneficial.

Martin, I am glad to hear that you found the problem and it is nothing serious. The hard part now it to adjust the cover and the belly pad so it does not rub. In the past I have cut the plastic hood and belly pan to give more clearance. I have also made the screw holes larger and used washers to secure the hood and belly pan. This lets you adjust the fit of the hood and belly pan to keep it from rubbing. I wish you luck on the repair. I know some of them are difficult to keep from rubbing. Please let me know what you find. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

I understand having the wiring harness is important. I did some research and at this time Sears does not carry this part. However I was able to locate it on a different website. Just link on this link to view it: Treadmill Parts . The part number that you are looking for it 35006098. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread.
