Are Manual Treadmills Loud?


Hi all. Overall, this PROGEAR 190 manual treadmill has been fine with noise. Occasionally, there would be noise when there was a misalignment with the rear roller shaft and the walking belts.

When I move the mainframe area into the upright position so the walking belt is vertical.

If I were to look at the bottom of the frame. There are two metal guide rails. If the walking belt is misaligned it'll rub against one of these metal guide rails.

So, when it rubs up against the guide rail, it creates a buzz-like sound.

Hi all. I added some additional photos to the pro gear 190 manual treadmill post I put up not too long ago.

It physically shows the two metal guide rails alongside the walking belt, so you can get a better picture of what I'm talking about above.

When you get to the post just scroll down, and the additional photos are towards the bottom.
