I was speaking to a friend earlier who runs occasionally and has a treadmill in the garage. Apparently it has started cutting out after about 15 minutes. The whole thing just stops and the power goes off. I *think* it was second hand from ebay and therefore not under any sort of warranty. Would any of you know who she could contact to try to get it fixed? I can't find a 'treadmill repair' section in the yellow pages ;-) thanks

Not sure about repair - maybe contact the manufacturer and see if they have any suggested repairers. It sounds like it's overheating - maybe whatever keeps the motor cool has failed.

when i've had this happen it's been because the surface of the deck has worn through. it therefore generates a lot more friction as the belt runs over it and the motor has to work harder and cuts out. belts and decks are standard replaceable parts and should be available on the net.
