Starting a bike every other week and not taking it for a ride is a sure fire way to foul the plugs. this sounds like it could be your case. get a new set of plugs and replace them, but when you start it go for a ride to burn off the extra fuel built up in motor. if you want to check them first pull the plugs out and if they are black and sooty or even wet this is your problem. hope this gets you going, if you have other problem just ask.

It will crank and run good for 10 minutes and shut off. Once it shuts off when you restart it, it will only run for a couple of minutes and shut off again ?


I would start by getting a can of carburetor cleaner and have it 'at the ready' and try the 'start, run stall, start run stall' operation again. Only THIS time, once the engine begins to stall, give it a couple of quick shots of the cleaner into the air filter to see if it stays running on the cleaner.

If it does, then it's still a fuel problem. If it doesn't, then it probably an ignition problem. I would be sort of leaning towards the ignition coil getting weak. The reason I'm saying that is your statement about it running (I'm assuming cold start) for at first, 10 minutes then it stalls. Start it again and it runs for a couple of minutes and stalls again.

This could possibly be from the coil getting warm/hot and not producing the needed spark. After a 10 minute run it simply gets too hot and stalls the engine. After the next restart, the coil is already warm from the engine and so it don't take as long for the coil to get hot and stall the engine again.

Hope this makes sense and helps you out.

We have a proform crosswalk advanced 525 and everytime I get on it will shut off within 3 to 5 minutes of starting. The power will not go off. Only the belt stops and I will have to restart the treadmill...


Most likely your problem can be with the motor control board, with the kids, the motor is not pull many amps, so the treadmill will operate normally. Replace the Motor control board

Samsung dryer DV218AEB shuts off in middle of dry cycle - "dead" mode


This is a sign of a bad motor. There is an overload protector on the motor that when the motor overheats it shuts the motor down.

Turns off after a few minutes


sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.
