I've tried adjusting tension. Loud squeaking near front of the belt while walking at any speed.
Please LUBE the deck belt and roller bearing very important

* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.
Hopefully this helps with your problem!

Open the treadmill case and Just spray WD-40 oil on the belt joints and Just oil the shaft and roller area.Sometimes when belt slips it is designed to shut off to prevent further damage.If still the problem persist then,
Check the safety key
Check the house breaker and the outlet.
Check the 15 amp breaker on the treadmill (if equipped). a. If the breaker has tripped, let the treadmill sit for 15 minutes then power back up. If it trips again but in a shorter amount of time, you have a belt/deck friction problem.
b. If the breaker has tripped but tripped on power up, check for a short-to-ground condition in the electrical parts of the treadmill.
Check all the wiring connections. A loose or corroded wire can cause a brief loss of power that will not result in an error code.
Check the membrane switches. If there is a stuck switch, especially the power switch, it can cause this condition.
Check for an overheating motor. There is a thermal switch in the motor if the motor has blue wires. This can be due to a faulty motor or high belt/deck friction problems. Check for charring in the motor wiring, wiring connectors, or a burning smell.
Check for an overheating console. The console does not run on high voltage so if it is overheating you need to replace the PCB.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)
