Problem: Treadmill motor spins freely | sliding sensation while walking on treadmill

In this video we see a treadmill motor that spins freely

The problem, in this case, is that the transmission belt doesn’t get a good grip on the pulley of the engine itself. To solve this problem, you should
  • clean (degrease) the two pulleys well (to prevent dirt or grease from slipping the belt)
  • slightly pull the belt by adjusting the position of the engine, or
  • you can replace the drive belt with a new one, which you can buy in our shop specialized in belts and treadmill parts .

Note: in some cases the sliding sensations may be related to other aspects of maintenance, which you can check here: treadmill maintenance

Abnormal behaviour: motor of the treadmill accelerates and decelerates - solved

In this first video we show the strange behavior of the treadmill. After replacing the broken controller with a new one, we can see that the engine accelerates and decelerates suddenly.

In this video, we show how to check the motor status by means of an amperometric clamp. As you can see the current consumption oscillates. This is a clear symptom that the motor is demagnetized and absorbs too much current.

In this last video, we show the light bulb test performed on the treadmill. As you can see, the card adjusts the voltage to the light bulb, that changes its light intensity, according to the speed of the treadmill. This shows that the controller works correctly, and the defect is due to the demagnetized treadmill motor. You can buy spare parts and assistance for your treadmill on the website:
