My treadmill is making a rubbing noise towards the front of the machine.Updated 2 years ago

This issue is often caused when the walking belt has moved off-center and the sound that you are hearing is indicative of the belt rubbing on the side rail. Check to make sure the treadmill is level as the belt will drift toward the lower side while walking. Another explanation for the belt drifting would be from leaning on the desk in such a way that the user is causing the belt to drift off center. Check to see which side the belt is rubbing against and use your foot to push the belt toward the center again. See walking belt adjustment for help with centering and adjusting the walking belt or watch our video here.
