There are a few things that can cause the belt to stop running. First thing to do is check the lubrication and adjust the tension (get a manual from the manufactures website if you don't have one, it will cover this adjustment). Next, clean the speed sensor wheel with compressed air or a q-tip and apply Paraffin wax under the belt and adjust tension if needed.

Hi,

The motor is over heating and tripping out....

When your son runs on it he runs differently and helps out the motor so it does not have to work as hard....

The motor is going bad and will need to be replaced...

The problem is, that the electric motor that runs the treadmill is thermally overloading. When you run on the treadmill your weight makes it harder for the motor to turn. When a child runs on the treadmill the motor doesn't have to work near as hard. And won't get hot and shut down.

    Thanks for your response!!

    If the belt is worn, it could cause the machine to stop when you try to run on it. Kindly mention the model number as well. Replace the belt and see, if that helps. Unless, revert and we could do some troubleshooting.

    Thanks and Regards

    Thanks for your response!!

    What is the age of your son..Sometimes, the weight of kids do not put much pressure on the belt to stop,however if an adult would try to run, it could stop as the weight of adult is always more than a child....

    Thanks and Regards

I have just used my LIME MT9 treadmill for the first time and it keeps stopping every few minutes with an E01 error message.




lube the deck belt and proceed according. However you must readjust the speed sensor + Reed switc. Run the software calibration for easy diagnose and fix it. see the diagram attached.
God bless you

Hello i have a weslo cadence 260 treadmill,it runs for about 1 minute then stops,the motor stops too,i have to keep tuning it off and on for it to work again,whats the problem with it,would be great if you...


It sounds like you have a worn deck and (or) belt. If the machine runs just fine without being on it but stops when someone is on it, then it sounds like a worn belt/deck.
The friction under the belt is so great that it overworks the motor to the point where it shuts itself down. The surface needs to be slick and smooth for the motor to work the least amount.
You could try to put some silicone under the walking belt and see if it helps. It really depends on how many miles are on it.

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.

I have the Lifecore Fitness T900HR treadmill and when my husband is running it stops. We have made sure all the connections are tight even the safety key but it still stops. When I am using the treadmill...


Their might be high friction between the belt and deck thus causing the error 1 code when your husband is on it. Try lubricating the area between belt and deck using silicone lubricant ( refer to owners manual). Then the lighter of the two "aka wife" walk on the treadmill for about 5 to 10 minutes.
This should take care of the problem if not then their is an issue with the belt and deck ( 85% of problems on treadmills are belt and deck related)

Horizon treadmill won't start running


The manual said that after lubricating the deck, press Stop and Speed buttons together for 5 minutes and this will reset the lubrication message and the treadmill should work.

The belt stopped suddenly and now won't work anymore


I would check your speed sensor. I've never seen one of these just stop suddenly. But running for a min or so is one of the signs a speed sensor gives you.( especially if the treadmill want speed up while it running) Check this out and if it"s not the problem get as much info as poss to help diag.

Reebok i run treadmill stops working after 10 mins


If everything still works but no belt movement, you motor controller is more than likely shot. If replacing you want to also pay attention to the deck and belt. Sence it sut down while running, it sound it an over heating problem which is usually caused from too much friction between the walking belt and the deck(the board under it) May require lube or may need replacing.
