Your belt is either worn or out of adjustment and too loose. Some treadmills actually have 2 belts depending on the drive system. Some have a small belt that goes from the actual motor to a pulley that is attached to walking belt drive system. If the big walking belt is tight you may have that system and the small belt needs tightened. Other systems have the motor connected directly to the big walking belt and in this system my guess would be the big walking belt is loose. Most have adjustment screws at the back end of the treadmill frame along side the belt to make it tighter. Adjust both sides the same so it tracks straight.

The treadmill runs fine until i step on it then it stalls and stops running

There is a motor which spins the treadmill belt.When you start the treadmill, the motor starts running and belt spins smoothly.But when you step on the treadmill, the motor cannot take the load and it stops working.In your case, the motor and motor control board is got weak and this is causing the problem. ---------- Or the other possibility is the treadmill belt, the belt on which you step.That belt should be smooth, there is grease in the inner side of belt to keep it lube and run fluently.If that oily grease gets dried up then belt gets bit stiff or jammed up, when a load is on belt.So get this both possibilities checked.First try lubing the belt internally and then try check the motor and motor control board.To locate motor control board its simple.On the side of motor you will see a electric plug in connector, the other end of that connector gets connected to motor control board.Remove that connector , clean it and reconnect after 5 minutes, then check.In some cases this resets the internal control system and everything, works normally.But its not always possible then removing and reconnecting connector helps.In other cases the motor or control board needs to be replaced.If the motor gets weak, then internal coils in motor gets burned up.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Sqeeks when you step on the belt; mainly on the right side. Also bell hangs up, sometimes almost coming to a stop, especially at low apeeds.

your treadmill's belt is loose. You have to tight the belt from the both side.
all the treadmills follow the same procedure for tightening the waking belt. Watch the following video for the same.
