Either front roller may need to be replaced or the motor drive belt may need to be adjusted. This problems are caused when a walking belt is worn out and in need of replacement. Too much tension can cause bearing failure in the motor and the front roller and front roller pulley failure.
Motor drive belt adjustment: The motor drive belt is adjusted independently from the walking belt. Some newer models have an auto tensioner which is a lever that has a wheel that puts pressure on the drive belt and a spring on the other end that automatically loads the belt to the proper tension. You should not adjust these since they are preset. Tension can be affected slightly by adjusting the tension of the walking belt but if you have a slipping problem, the drive belt will require replacement. If your drive belt is too loose, it will slip on the front roller pulley or the motor pulley. If it is too tight, it will increase your amp draw to the point that you may have an electronics or motor problem. Due to this, it is better to be on the safe side and replace a drive belt rather than risk over tightening it.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a
the circuit breaker probably only covers the motor anyway, and if this is the case then the problem has been isolated already.
it sounds like the motor has burnt out, and there is a short in it somewhere. the best (and safest) thing to do is to remove the motor and either just replace it, or have it tested by an electrician.
most repair shops will happily test a motor for free if you take it to them. it should only take a few minutes.
take the circuit breaker to them as well, as it is possible to have a faulty circuit breaker.
please feel free to ask if you need more advice.
hope this helps
