Resolved Question:

We have a Nordic Track EXP 1000S. While the treadmill is running, the walking belt just stops but the power up top stays on. Sometimes, we can turn it off and restart it and it will run for a short time but will stop without warning. The lights up on top always stay on, it's just the belt that stops for no reason.

A treadmill will shut down/slow down from to much friction which is due to high motor current because the walkbelt and deck are not properly lubricated. Take an amperage reading from the motor and if it is above 10-12 amps steadily I would recommend lubricating the deck first and retest if it still cuts out replace the controller and finally,
After replacing the controller and lubricating take an amperage reading from the motor and if it is above 10-12 amps steadily replace the walking deck because it is worn out. Apply .5 oz of lubricant on the deck every 3-6 months or 100 hours of use. This will extend your treadmill's life many years.
