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
