I have the same problem. The white wheel on the end of the front roller is probably stripped out, and it spins when weight is applied. You can order a new front roller online for around $100.

I have a proform crosswalk 525x and have replaced the walking belt and motor belt, I agree with all of the comments above however what happens if that doesn't fix it. I am mechanically inclined and took it all apart and removed the mylar sheeting underneath the walking belt and put in polished stainless steel. I was hoping to eliminate the resistance in the walking belt and the platform, this improved it but did not eliminate it. I would think that the roller surfaces would be coarse or sticky to promote the "gearing effect". However the rollers are smooth at some places and coarse on the others. It appears that the coarse spots are from wear/swelling and the smooth spots on the roller appear OEM. Any ideas where to go next... I am thinking about wrapping the rollers in something that will grab the belt and prevent slipping. However my predicament is that I don't want the belt to slip on the rollers but to slip on the mylar sheeting (now replaced by stainless sheeting)

Dear Sir:I will try to help you. please be patience and carefully.Watch the videos. How to Troubleshoot a Treadmill Although most home treadmills are designed for easy operation, there are some common problems that are inevitable. The console may not display. Perhaps a loose or slipping running belt poses a safety hazard. Maybe the treadmill runs at an unpredictable speed. Those are just some of the things that can happen to bring your workout to a halt. While certain repairs will require the services of a professional who specializes in treadmill maintenance and repair, there are some basic repairs that you can do yourself. Difficulty: Moderate Instructions 1. 1 Clean and routinely maintain the running belt. The belt may be worn if the treadmill stops operating or trips the circuit breaker. Look for any tears in the belt. Test the belt by putting the treadmill at full incline. If it does not shut off, you may need to replace the belt. You can try lubricating it first, but the safest fix is simply to replace it. 2 Tighten the running belt if it is loose. A belt can slip if there is too much friction. Be careful not to tighten the belt too much, though. You should be able to lift the belt at least 3 inches. 3 Push the belt in the direction that it normally turns. Turn off the power before you start. If the belt is difficult to turn, there is high belt/deck friction. However, if the belt moves freely, that's not the problem. 4 Examine the roller sleeve to see if it is centered on the running belt. If not, this could cause the belt to move to one side. Often a common problem with treadmills, you can try making adjustments yourself, but eventually you may need to replace the sleeve or roller. 5 Stop the treadmill and immediately unplug the power cord from the outlet if you notice a burning smell. Overheating could be a sign that there is too much friction or a short in the wiring. Examine the belt and deck for any signs of wearing. If they check out alright, inspect the wiring. Replace any damaged parts as needed. 6 Check to make sure that the power switch is on if you suddenly lose power. If this isn't the cause of the power loss, unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet and individually test the fuses, breakers and switches. Test the wall outlet first, as a fuse may have blown or a circuit breaker tripped. 7 Allow the treadmill to run at a speed of 2.5 mph without anyone walking on it if you notice fluctuations in the speed. The speed should be constant. If not, there could be a problem with the motor. 8 Test the motor using a fully charged lantern battery. The motor should still operate at slow speed. 9 Replace the batteries in the panel if it dims. If the batteries aren't the problem, check to see that all the wiring is still intact. Sometimes a wire pulls loose. With this you can fix it.If you need further assistance, please reach me. sincerly. God bless you.E.CUADRAMANAGUA, NICARAGUA.

I have a proform 350 treadmill and when i cut it on it makes a loud noise. The faster you go the louder it gets my husband took the front piece off and noticed that the the end piece on the roller is broken (not the side the belt is on but the other side). Do we have to replace the whole roller or can we replace they black piece that is broken? My husband believes it is a bearring.

The roller is not difficult to replace, it is also no really expensive.Part number is #219035 it is around $80 from the manufacturer.The phone number to order the part will be found on the model/serial number tag on your treadmill.When folded, there is a tag on the frame of the treadmill with a correct model and serial number and the 1-800......

Proform 622 Exp treadmill belt slips

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches above the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. Now if this does not solve this problem then check the drive belt and adjust accordingly, also reverse the process of the above mentioned
