It's possible that your treadbelt needs lubrication, or simply adjusting. Here is a tutorial on adjusting your treadbelt:

Here is one link to purchase a lube kit, there are probably many others online also:

Should you actually need to purchase a new treadbelt, I would try to identify which specific model of the Proform 530 you have from this list and then in the parts list for that treadmill scroll down to "Treadbelt"

Treadmill runs 5 minutes stops

There could be other possibilities causing the treadmill to stop but one of the most common issues is excessive wear on the belt/deck.

When a running belt has excessive wear, it creates a lot of friction which causes the drive motor to work harder. When the drive motor works harder it will start overheating. If the belt is not lubricated periodically, it will ruin the deck, the drive motor, and cause other electrical problems such as tripping the breaker [after a while, the circuit breaker on the treadmill will need to be replaced.

It is suggested to lubricate the belt every month. At this point, you may need to replace both your deck and your running belt

ProForm 530x Treadmill runs, but stops when I get on to walk/run

Unplug the unit and pull the motor shroud off and check the compartment it like sound you have dirt and corrosion . If you have a multi meter I'd start checking from the outlet and work my way to the lower board to see if I have power, Your question about the motor casing the problem fine the 2 leads that come form the motor and goes to the board pull them off (after unplugging the unit) and stick the leads into the motor connectors put meter on dcv and have somebody get on the treadmill and with one foot start pushing the belt . You should see dcv being generated for the if that the case then the motor by all rights should be good I would suspect that lower board. Hope this sheds a little light on the problem. Good Luck!!

Remove the cover, you will see the motor and an adjusting pivot bracket. Loosen the nut/screw on this bracket, use a HD screwdriver or pry bar and move to take the slack out of the belt. The resistance/tension in belt should be 3/4"-1"

Treadmill belt stopped

Double check all your connection. Check to see if you may have pinched any wires. Also check to see if you have accidently unplugged or pulled a wire loose. If that's not the case it sounds like a lower board issue.
