ProForm 735 CS treadmill stops working

After about half a lap my treadmill stops running. There is still power to the console and the timer keeps going, it's just that the motor stops. If I pull out the key and wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in again I can get the treadmill to start working again, but it stops again shortly after that. If I don't stand on the treadmill it will run continuously without stopping.

I tried lubricating the belt, but that didn't help. However, even after lubricating the belt it was hard to pass the "push test" where I pushed off at the top of the belt and at full incline, but only rolled about half way back.

The treadmill is plugged directly into an outlet, no extension cords. I opened the hood and found the tech sheet and went through the calibration procedures, which seemed to be OK as far as I could tell.

Are there some tests I can do on the electronics to see if there's a bad component somewhere?

I forgot to mention that I adjusted the belt tension until it started slipping, then increased the tension just a bit.
