Depending on the noise it could be one of several components failing.
If loud clanking or clunking noises these components are Drive Motor, Front or Rear Rollers.
If it is a loud humming noise increasing and decreasing when planting yours feet then it is either the Inductor ( square object ) or the internal windings of the Drive Motor.
Unplug your unit remove the motor shroud with a long shaft flat tip screw driver you'll be able to pin point the problem with this tool.
Now locate front shaft and rear roller tension adjusting bolt ( refer to owners Manual) plug in unit, start unit and touch flat tip on the shaft and place your ear on the handle the noise will be amplified and you will be able to locate the noise repeat this procedure on the other above mentioned components if problem is not found. GOOD LUCK!

The most common cause of belt sticking or "slippage" is lack of lubrication. Most treadmill belts use lubrication on the underside of the belt to reduce friction between the belt and the platform. This helps the treadmill glide along smoothly under the weight of a person. If your belt is lacking in lubrication, it can catch on the treadmill platform. Apply lubrication every few months to the underside of the belt to prevent this from occurring.
A petroleum or silicone based lubricant is recommended, and most easily applied in a spray can. Simply lift up the belt about midway along the platform and spray a small amount of lubricant underneath from about the middle of the platform width to the closest edge. Repeat from the other side. Apply lubricant sparingly...it can be messy.
Next, turn on the treadmill and let it run for a minute, then check if the belt still sticks. A little more lubricant may be necessary.
If you have found this helpful, please take a moment to give me four thumbs up.
