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 walking deck. 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.
