It sounds like you have a bearing failing, either in the front roller or the motor. If it is the front roller it will be a dull "Clicking" noise, if its the drive motor it will be a growl noise. The growl will be so loud at top speed you wont be able to even talk over the noise. Remove the motor hood and this will help you determine the culprit.

Can I fix a NB1500 treadmill belt that is bowing in the middle? I've tried adjusting the tighteners on the back and cannot eliminate the bowing in the middle.

No, you need a new belt as it is stretched because that is where it gets pounded all the time. $50 to $100 depending on the quality you choose.

My tread mill stop working i have green light in the electonic board 5 small light not on

You need a new controller board. You can check your manual for how to order replacement parts. It will not be available on the New Balance website. It will actually be from an off-brand treadmill manufacturer that made the treadmill for New Balance.

How do i fix my belt, is bowing up on my NB 1500 treadmill?

There are two knobs on each side at the end of the treadmill deck. Twist those knobs to tighten the belt. You will need to tight both sides. The little meters show you the amount of tightening you have done. They're most useful for making sure you have both sides tightened the same; otherwise the belt will be lopsided and slide to one side or the other.
