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.

SOURCE: I have a Nautilus Bowflex 5 series treadmill.

I will have to check the error code but sounds like a heat problem. When you get too much friction between the walk belt and the deck it builds a lot of heat which creates more drag on the motor. This causes the motor to overheat which in turn usually shuts the machine off. You can let it cool and go back exercising until the cycle repeats. If this sounds like your issue, try lubricating the walking belt. If it's not in bad shape it should make a difference. The machine should run longer. 10-15 is pretty quick though so it make take a couple of application of lubricant. The belt may need replacing if the need for lubricant becomes too regular.

My tredmill works but after few mins I get burnt smell?


Treadmills are relatively simple machines, which means a burning smell can be quickly determined.

Check your treadmill belt for wear. Try to find where on the treadmill feels hot when you smell the burning. It could possibly be the electric motor or wiring giving out under load.

Inconsistent Speeds and Motor Smell


A new treadmill is in order! It sounds like the motor is either old, or it has a factory default. Definitely do not use the treadmill if it produces burning smells this is in fact the wires in the motor heating up and melting this could cause a fire.

My Cadence 825 is running on walking speed only when I'm on it but speed up when I'm not stepping the belt. It also makes burring sound when switched on and I can smell burning too.This is a 13 year old...


You actually used the opposite treatment that was needed when you used the lubricant spray. You want the belt to not slip but instead grab to the belt driver. Now, the lube should be removed and instead the powder that causes the belt to grab hold should be applied. You may want to call any treadmill store and ask them what they charge to do a maintenance on a treadmill like yours.
