This probably did not happened suddenly right? the problem is not the motor however you can easily check the blue capacitor for peace of mind. with the power disconnected, disconnect one side off the capacitor from the top. with a ohm meter put the 2 probes on the cap,you will ear a temporary beep sound from your meter, then reverse your probes on the capacitor and again a temporary sound that mean your capacitor is good and your motor will run OK.
Your problem is more then likely your run belt and bed assembly. When new, these are coated with a wax of some kind for slipping, has you use the machine wax wears off, and so is the belt. You can see a black rubber dust at the rear of the machine. And so resistance increase when pressure is applied on the running belt.
Just behind the on/off switch where the power cord goes in, there is a auto reset 15 amp breaker that trips when too must resistance against the motor increase the amperage over 15amps. At 7 min/m on your speed setting and if the belt is adjusted correctly with nobody on, the motor pull about 6amps, with someone like me 180lbs, the motor pulls an avg of 10amps with a new belt.
If you have a clamp amp meter you can test it yourself.
2 parts you will need to fix this; 50985-101 (bed assembly) and 36355-101 (run belt 17 X 110) This is real easy to install.
make sure these parts are for your machine model # as they did increased the width of their belt over the years
Since 1998 I had to replace these parts 2 times with an average of 3 people using the treadmill every day. This is a good machine and if everything else is good it's worth it. I paid $300 for these parts, i'm sure if you shoppe a little you can do better.
Have a good one

not to sound funny but are you sure that you have this tread set in the units (mpg/kph) that you require. i have worked in loads of gyms and its a common problem that people think the belt is running to fast because its set in kph and that thinks its in miles eg 9mph = 14.5kph
you can check and change the units in the club setting menu.
hope this helps :)

Removethe red "STOP" cover. The cover may pushes against a switch. If theswitch moves too far down and rests against the cover, it will be stuck in alock position causing the error message. To remove the red STOP cover, removethe few screws behind the console. When the front cover is off, turn it overand unscrew the two screws that hold the red stop cover. Then push the coverout through the FRONT. Do not attempt to lift it out by the end with the screwholes. It will not pull out that way. Test the machine before screwing thepanels back again. The message should no longer show STOP KEY. Test the visiblewhite small switch that you uncovered by removing the red flap. The messageshould stop when you press the switch. If theproblem still exists then open the console and check under the magnet holderfrom inside you may see rust ire broken cable there, if you find thisthen you may have to replace it. Hopethis will help you.AV
