Hi does the Motor actually seize up or does the belt just stop?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Motor seizes up, I can manually with my hand rotate the belt.
Exercise Equipment Technician: J.T., Technician replied 11 months ago
OK then the Motor just stops. If it was seized you would not be able to move the belt.
