Original Starting post for this thread:
Does anyone know of a way to get a treadmill to stop sticking while it is in motion? After a couple of months it started skipping when using it. I regreased under the belt as per the instructions, but that didn't seem to help the problem.

I'll take a look at that suggestion when I get a chance. Thanks.

No progress. I tried the lubrication myself. Didn't seem to help. I also tried the tightening of the belt that was mentioned earlier, but that didn't correct the problem either.

You are going to hate my suggestion... Forget the treadmill and invest in a pair of running sneakers and hit the park. The results you get from running in the park are SOOOOO VERY superior to a treadmill. Want to do ONE better? Run in soft sand...

Sorry, cant help much else...

I tried your suggestions and the problem did not go away. I looked up the owner's manual, and it stated the same idea. I tightened it, as far as I could and the skipping was still there. I think I may need a technician to come take a look at it.

If you have any more ideas, please share, and thanks for the help.

The belt actually needs to be tightened. There should be two adjustment screws (normally allen heads on most units)on the back end of the treadmill. If the belt is tracking straight then adjust the screws the same on both sides to bring the rear roller back and tighten up the belt. There should be a section in your owners manual detailing this. I hope this helps out.

Type = pro form crosswalk advanced 525x

This folds upright, but doesn't have the bolts that you mention.

From what I can tell, everything seems to be in working order. It just starts getting caught when it is being used. It runs fine when I let it go by itself, but as soon as I put any pressure on the wlaking/running area, it starts to get caught up.
