I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your treadmill.  By what you have stated I suspect the treadmill motor is working to hard and over heating. When the motor over heats it can, cause the overload in the motor to open or it could trip the breaker. The most common cause for this is a dry walking belt. When the belt is dry, it causes the motor to work harder. To test the walking belt lubrication, do not turn the treadmill motor on. Set the elevation to the highest level. Stand near the front of the walking belt. Push yourself firmly toward the rear of the treadmill. If the belt is properly lubricated the belt will take you to the rear edge of the treadmill to the floor. If you move and stop, the belt needs lubricating. The part number for the belt lubrication kit is 219168. You can buy it at Sears parts direct The cost is around $4.00. The application instructions should be in the package, but in case they are not here is how to apply the lubrication. Turn the walking belt until the belt seam is along the top of the front roller. Raise the belt on one side in the center of the walking board front to back as high as you can. Apply � the tube of lubrication to the walking board in a zig zag fashion moving from front to back. Move the belt until the seam comes up on top of the rear roller, lift the belt again, and put the rest of the lubrication on the walking board in the same manner. Turn the treadmill on and walk on the belt for 10-20 minutes. Walk all over the belt to distribute the lubrication evenly on the walking belt and board. If the belt seems to be fine, the problem could be a motor control or a motor. Both of these parts can be expensive to replace. To be sure, I recommend having a service technician come out and diagnose the problem. you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.  If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread.

Well something that would have this kind of information will be in your owners manual.

I will cut/paste the directions to lube the belt on your treadmill. Outside of that, the only other thing I can think of right off would be the belt or walking board is worn.

If the noise seems to be from the frame area, there could be a cracked weld. Do you notice any odd movements to the machine when in use?

How to lubricate an Icon treadmill walking belt:

Turn treadmill off, and unplug from the power outlet. Start with the walking belt seam at the front roller.

Using the T-Wrench or Allen Wrench loosen the rear roller adjustment bolts 10-12 turns counter-clockwise to get enough slack in the walking belt to get one (1) hand underneath the belt.

Lift up the walking belt as high as possible.

Squirt half (1/2) of the deck wax in a zig-zag pattern across the entire walking deck surface.

Slide the walking belt by hand until the seam is at the rear roller.

Squirt the other half (1/2) of the deck wax in a zig-zag pattern across the entire walking deck surface.

Tighten both of the rear roller adjustment bolts 10-12 turns clockwise. (The same number that was turned in step 3)

Plug the treadmill into a power outlet and turn power switch to the "ON" position.

Attach the safety key to the operator and then the console.

Start the treadmill and allow it to run for three (3) minutes.

Walk on the treadmill, at safe speed, for another three (3) minutes to help spread the deck wax across the walking deck.

Wipe off any excess deck wax that may have seeped out from underneath the walking belt, with a clean damp cloth.

Center the walking belt as needed.

• ICON deck wax P/N 219168 • ICON deck wax kit, 3 tubes lubricant and an applicator wand // P/N 219170
