Hello- thank you for contacting us. I’ll be happy to help. Can you tell Me for a fact that it is the motor that you’re running. Do you hear a countdown when you press start button as in three, two, one… Then it starts up? If that is the case, then what you have going on is a drive belt inside the motor housing that has either slipped or broken. So the motor is running but it is not connected to the pulley that is making the walk belt go. What you need to do first is actually remove the cover that covers the motor and verify that the motor pulley has either snapped or come off. If it has come off you can easily walk it back on. If it is broken you’ll have to replace it. Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with

How do you remove the cover?
There are 3 screws on the front of the cover, one screw on the left, and one on the right of the cover (plastic cover on the front of the machine)
Ask Your Own Exercise Equipment Question
Those screws need to be removed. The cover should come off easily. Make sure you unplug it before removing.
Ask Your Own Exercise Equipment Question
You can plug it back in after the cover is off and start it up. You’ll be able to see the workings of the machine and what is running or not.
