i just got a proform 985cd treadmill for $150 and now that i got it in the house and try to use it i noticed a what seems to be a pretty bug problem. when i get on it and try to run every step i take the belt slows or stops and jerks me around. anyone have a problem like this?

The motor could be going bad. My old proform did that right before the motor died. Could be something else, but underload mine would slow/stop, run fine up until I stepped on.

well i just loosened the motor and repositioned it so the motor belt was tighter and now it works fine, awsome haha. thanks for your reply tho matt.
