I'm sorry. I misspoke when I described the problem on Monday. I used the word "rear" when I probably should have used the word "front". By "front", I am hoping that we mean the end of the treadmill directly below the control panel. So here goes again.
I have a proform 590 TL treadmill, probably 12-15 years old.My wife was using it and heard a "different" sound. The visible symptom was a tear on the ivory-colored "front roller band". What I am calling the front roller band (for want of a better word), is a thin, see-through 3/4"-wide, rubber "band" wrapping of the front roller just below the edge of the belt on its right side.After investigating, we thought the "rubber band" might just be frayed. But after 30 minutes of use, the belt shifted far to the left and begin tearing threads off the left side of the belt. Meanwhile the "rubber band" itself had traveled to the far right of the roller where it was distorted and depositing its scrapings on the floor below.What do I need? - the name of the rubber band- what do I need to replace? the rubber band, something else, also?Thank you for your help.
Not the drive belt.
The clear rubber band item was originally on the front roller at the far right edge of the walking surface. Just under the walking surface.
I cut it off when I saw it had migrated to the far right edge of the roller. Because the walked surface had shifted far to the left and was cutting a hole in the plastic edge.
Don't see on diagram. But diagram is confusing.
Thanks for your help.
