My weslo treadmill G40 shuts down after awhile. And the motor is extremely hot. After it cools down it will start up. My belt on the motor was loose and I retightened it up. But it still shuts down. The treadmill belt looks good.

It is overheating. Most motors have some type of fan system to prevent this which could be clogged preventing air flow or could have stopped functioning. If it is simply clogged take compressed air and blow the debris out of it ( this may take a few trys if there is a lot of debris) if it is no longer working you may need a professional to replace it. Also if it is on carpet instead of a hard surface that can impeed airflow as well.

Walking surface will only move very slowly. The belt seems tight enough, tried to tighten 1/4 turn, still not moving properly. Treadmill is a Weslo Cadence 450, bought a few years ago. Thanks

lift the sides of the w/belt the hieght should be 2-3 inches. if more to loose,tighten it up. still have a issue take hood off and check the motor belt. if you find a bunch of black dust. your belt is worn or on its way out.PS you can find the belt on the web.

Hello i have a weslo cadence 260 treadmill,it runs for about 1 minute then stops,the motor stops too,i have to keep tuning it off and on for it to work again,whats the problem with it,would be great if you...

It sounds like you have a worn deck and (or) belt. If the machine runs just fine without being on it but stops when someone is on it, then it sounds like a worn belt/deck.
The friction under the belt is so great that it overworks the motor to the point where it shuts itself down. The surface needs to be slick and smooth for the motor to work the least amount.
You could try to put some silicone under the walking belt and see if it helps. It really depends on how many miles are on it.

Shuts down after running a few minutes

hi when you mean shuts down it that the power or just the belt, if everything including the power turns off then check the trip switch on the front of your treadmill, and if you are using an extention wire on a roll, please unroll the whole thing that can cause a short. and if you can smell any burning thats a sign that the motor and belt are either too tight and on they way out.
