My Bowman treadmill 7 series stopped working. It just shows 2 words: safe out. Please help.

Make sure the magnetic safety key ('safety pull' or 'emergency stop magnet') is in place. SAFE OUT indicates that the safety key is not in position or is otherwise not working properly.

My question is, last night, I set the speed to 5mile/hr, the treadmill automatically stopped after 12mins( the belt stop, power was on). and I can not restart it immediately, Then after 5 mins, the belt...

A treadmill will shut down from to much friction which is due to high motor current because the walkbelt and deck are not properly lubricated. I would recommend replacing the motor controller,walkbelt,deck and applying .5 oz of lubricant on the deck every 3-6 months or 100 hours of use. This will extend your treadmill's life many years.

I have a Nautilus Bowflex 5 series treadmill. After 10 to 15 minutes running it suddenly stops and Er 5 shows up.

I will have to check the error code but sounds like a heat problem. When you get too much friction between the walk belt and the deck it builds a lot of heat which creates more drag on the motor. This causes the motor to overheat which in turn usually shuts the machine off. You can let it cool and go back exercising until the cycle repeats. If this sounds like your issue, try lubricating the walking belt. If it's not in bad shape it should make a difference. The machine should run longer. 10-15 is pretty quick though so it make take a couple of application of lubricant. The belt may need replacing if the need for lubricant becomes too regular.
