horizon performance seires (PST8)

by joyce

I bought this treadmill roughly about 4 years ago. I used it quite alot to start with but now that I am trying to use it again, I am having problems with the belt. It is not moving even though the electronic console shows that my workout has already started. Can someone tell me what is wrong this was the high end machine. I believe I payed around $2,000.00 for this. It has a power-V Digital drive system, 2.75 HP Continous duty motor, 26lb MagForce Motor at 3100RPM, and it says it has a 20year Motor Warranty.

Incorrect belt tension
by: martin

The tension of your belt is incorrect.

The BIG allen key (red handle) goes at the tip of the foot (big hole).

Do not tigth it too much, it will freeze the motor and you'll end up burning it.

Possible solution
by: Mark

I own this model, too. We've used it continuously and have not had the problem you describe. However, see if this helps.

Unplug the treadmill. Open the motor cover (very easy to do). See if you can get the belt moving with your hand. If you're uncomfortable opening the cover, try doing the same thing by standing on the belt and trying to manually get the belt to move. Raising incline might help you do this. If you're unable to get either moving, it would seem that something has seized in the motor (not a good sign).
