Sounds like your Motor was going bad with the previous symptoms. Now it has burned out your Motor control board as well. It may be time to shop for a new unit but that's up to you. You can get an idea of Repair costs at fitnessrepairparts. Com

How long ago was the motor replaced? Have you ever lubricated the deck?

The console is fine, that is the part with the buttons. The Motor control board is the circuit board under the Motor cover.
