This could be a failing controller, a worn belt/deck, belt needing lubrication, or just a matter of calibrating.

I have attached the document with the calibration procedure. Give that a shot first. Just do the speed/inline part of the calibration.

If that does not change anything order kit 219170 from HERE and then watch THIS VIDEO .

If none of that does anything to change the situation then the controller is bad and it will need to be replaced.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

I stumbled across this site. I have hope on getting my treadmill fixed! I had it in a covered patio room with no AC Worked great everyday for years. Wife brought it inside the house and now after walking about 15 -20 minutes it cuts off. After reading all the previous posts I wonder if it is a board, the motor or something different. Wade I look forward o hearing your great answers.

@Charles: What is the model number of the treadmill? Also, when you say it cuts off do you mean that the belt stops or that everything stops (no lights on console or anything)? If just the motor stops that could be a pretty simple fix or a new board. I'll know a little more with the model number and a little bit more details. I look forward to helping you get this back up and running again.

Good Morning Wade, I appreciate your help. The model is 830 QT. I am walking on it and 15-20 minutes the motor stops. I can't say for sure but I believe the lights go off but come back on. I have to hit start and it comes back on.

It may be that the controller is failing. This could be just a random fail or it could be something causing it to fail. We can check that. Incline the treadmill all the way up. Then stand at the front of the walking board and give yourself a slight shove. You should slide back about 75% of the way. If you do not the walking belt needs lube. If the belt is not lubed it will cause the controller to amp up. After enough of that the controller will overheat and cut out. that can destroy a controller pretty quick. If you determine that the belt needs lubricating order kit 219170 and lubricate the belt. Once that's done if you still have the problem, the controller is done. I attached a link so you can see how to lube the belt.

Hello Wade-----Yes, you were right, I could not slide back. I have ordered the lube kit and hoping that will be enough to get this machine running smooth again. Since this has happened I hope the controller has some more life in it. Thanks Wade for your help.

If it's not been acting funny for very long then the controller is very likely going to be okay. The stress of overamping in these situations really takes a toll on the controller though. While you're waiting for the lube kit, I don't recommend trying to run it as that will cause the controller to amp up and get hot which will lead to it failing. If you have any other questions give me a shout and we'll see if we can help you get it worked out.

Wade------ OK I have lubed it, does not seem to be fixed. I let it run at low speed for about 5 minutes. It runs nice. I get on it and it slows down (Is this normal?). I increase the speed, then it slows down and shuts off. By the way I only put one tube. Do I need more. The test for being able to slide back while incline. I am not sure if I improved the distance since adding the oil. Next step??????
