Hi your belt and deck are worn causing too much friction. You can Check for part availability at fitnessrepairparts. Com or Treadmill doctor. Com. Most likely being a Sears machine Parts won't be available but it's worth a shot. Just enter your model number into the site to find Parts for your machine.
