I have this treadmill and not long after we purchased it just stopped one day while my husband was running on it. We had it repaired and just a month or two later it happened again. We have not had it repaired a second time but are in the process of finding someone to repair it.... I would only recommend this to someone who is using a walking program or a light running workout and not to anyone over 200 lbs. (which my husband is) or anyone putting in hard core running mileage.
