Customer Question

I have a Z14 Proform treadmill which I purchased used; it is two years old. It worked perfectly for two or three weeks, then one day would not start. The display shows that it is working but the belt does not turn. I tried the reset button, and then disconnected power overnight. So far, nothing has helped. The incline and fan work fine. If I increase the speed setting, it appears to increase and time/distance are displayed. The belt just does not turn.
I feel confident that it is something very simple, but I'm not mechanical at all. Can you advise me?
