This machine has what they call a thermal switch. It is designed to
shut the machine off if it gets too hot. This heat is caused by
friction. Friction is caused 99% of the time by the walking belt or
the drive belt. If it is the drive belt then it can be solved by
either applying a treadmill lubricant (must be made for treadmill
belts) or by purchasing a new belt. If you feel the underneath side
of the belt and you feel a screen door type feeling you just need
lubricant. If you feel a smooth surface you will probably need a
new belt. If you have lubricated in the past year and your belt has
the screen door feel then take off the motor hood cover and check
the drive belt. If it is worn then you will need to replace that.
You can purchase either of these products from the manufacturer, at a couple of other places that may have them for discounts are,, or

My treadmill runs for 15 minutes than stops for a minute than start up for 10 minutes than stops, than start up

It is designed to be able to be restarted after about 5 minutes. When it stops, wait 5 to 10 minutes, reset the circuit breaker. Of course you still have the same problem.

The motor contoller board is most likely overheating do to friction, so you're going to need to lubricate the walking belt(this should actually be done every 6 months) you can order a kit on ebay for about 15-20 bucks, it's called " lube n walk ", and no, I don't sell it, but I use it on the treadmills I service.

I recomend you loosen the belt one full turn on each side before you lube the belt, apply the lube and run the treaadmill for one mile without anyone on it and then let it rest for a while.

After that give it a try. if the belt slips, then tighten it back up one turn, but don't over tighten it.

I also recomend using a single outlet surge supressor.

That should solve your problem.

try lubricating the running belt. Any decent sized fitness store should have a lubrication kit. Also, make sure the machine is plugged into a dedicated circuit. Meaning, there are no other devices on the same circuit as the treadmill. Not just the same outlet, but the entire circuit of the room you have the treadmill in. You also want to make sure it's not on any extension cords. Plug it into a surge protector (power bar with a cord less than 6') and then directly into the wall. Those are the 3 main culprits why treadmills shut down after a short period of time.

This generally means that lubrication is needed to be applied between the belt and belt. You may purchase these kits thru the products name is Lube and Walk follow the instructions that come with it to apply the lubrication.
