If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Hi. I'm Peter, Have you adjusted the tension on the belt? If you have and it's too tight it will cause stress on the belt motor and it will shut down trying to keep the motor from burning up. Of course depending on how old the unit is the motor could be wearing out also. Check the adjustment according to the owners manual. Any other problems will be associated with electronic controls and most likely outside the realm of the average person to repair with out special equipment. Also turn the belt by hand if you can and check the rollers that the belt rides on. If the bearings are bad on any of the rollers then it could also produce a lot of stress on the motor causing it to heat up and have a thermal shutdown just like a belt that is too tight. They also have an emergency shut off switch that may be going bad and tripping. Let me know what you find.

3 different possibilities in my opinion:

belt is too loose, belt is too tight, belt is worn out.

Try to lift the belt and get your hand under it in the middle of the deck. If you cannot reach, it is possible that your belt is too tight. Another clue for this would be the belt "curling" on both sides at the edges. Try to loosen the belt, gradually and testing it along the way.

If on the contrary you can easily slide your hand under the belt from one side to the other, it is more likely that the belt is too loose. The squeaking might be due to the belt not being "square" on the deck. Try to loosen it even more until you can slide it with your hands across the deck. And have it aligned evenly at the front and back. Then retighten and adjust the tracking at low speed.
!!! Do not over loosen as the bolts might come out of the back roller.

A worn out belt might squeak and skip when its old.
