    When you turn on the treadmill and press a speed the belt goes real fast for about 2 seconds and then shuts off and won't do anything until you turn it off then on again and select a speed and the same thing happens. HELP!!!!!!!!!!

    I'd say that you should check whatever it is that senses the speed.

    Have you got a basic electronics background? Are you able to check electronic parts and sensors, or are you asking for advice as a layperson in electronics?
    It'd help if we knew your skill level in troubleshooting.

    I am asking for advice as a person who knows very little about electricity. I mean I know the basics (ground wires, hot wires, have used a circut tester, and the difference between 110 and 220). thats about the extent of it. I would appreciate any input.

    look for sensors on the motor, or on the drive wheel for the treadmill. These will have thin wires compared with those that connect to the motor.

    Take a picture of whatever it is that they're connected to, showing enough of the surrounding area that we can see what type of sensor it is.

    Then we'll try to figure out how to test it.
