Several issues, drive belt that drives the walking belt could be loose but you should smell rubber if its slipping.
Something could be caught in the track causing extra drag, its easy to do if you have kids or pets
Check for when you last lubed the track and walking surface, with no silicone it will drag and bog at low speeds

Likely the cover of one of the motor brushes popped off. Unplug the machine before you pop it back in place, then try it again.
If that doesn't work, most likely it's the motor control board, or possibly the console, or finally just a loose connection behind the console.
But most likely, it's the motor brush cover. I've been seeing that alot with this model.

Hello There, Thank you for all the information. It appears as if your walk belt is worn. What is happening is the friction from the bottom of the belt is actually causing the motor to overheat (there is a thermal cutout inside where the 2 blue wires go) When the belt wears the cloth on the underside becomes flattened out causing too much surface area to contact the walk board, thus the extra friction.
To check your walk board you can loosen the adjusting bolts on the rear and while lifting the walk board look underneath. If there is any wear/white areas then you will need to replace the board as well. You will be able to tell by just rubbing your hand across it and check for any places where the black film may be coming off.
Also the only time you really need to replace any of the rollers is when the bearings go bad or the pulley on the front roller separates. The rollers are about a 1% chance of causing this problem.
Good Luck! and great question, Tim

# get a 12-18 volt dc battery fully charged(like one from a cordless drill)
# Make sure it is fully charged, because it won't work if not
# attach the + and - to the motor red is + and black is -
# If the motor turns slightly your motor is ok, if not the motor is bad and would need replaced
# if the motor is ok then your motor controller(the board with the metal) is malfunctioning and would need replaced.

o The Nordic Track C2050 allows users to change the incline of the treadmill with a simple touch of a button. This treadmill features both increase and decrease buttons for the incline. The incline of the machine will change by .5 percent every time the buttons are pressed. With each press on the incline buttons, the machine will take a moment to actually reach the incline setting that was just selected.
Capacity of Weight
o Users who are larger than or weigh more than the average person will be pleased with the added capacity of weight that the Nordic Track C2050 allows. Unlike most treadmills in its economy class that only allow a weight limit of 200 to 250 pounds, this model lets users who weigh as much as 300 pounds use the machine safely. Larger people can get the benefits of a cardiovascular workout on this treadmill without worrying about damaging it.
Heart Rate Measurement
o This Nordic Track model allows users to measure their heart rate. All the machine requires is for users to place their feet on its foot rails and grasp the metal contacts with their hands. The Nordic Track C2050 then works to determine your pulse, and the symbol of a heart will eventually show up in the display. After a couple of dashes show up, your heart rate will be displayed. Users who want to be certain of getting an accurate reading should ensure their hands are clean when gripping the metal contacts.
sincerely. God bless you.
