You're probably reaching your vfd's current limit or the motor speed is too low. I suggest to check the current and also consider using a reducer gearbox or pulleys.

The 4M may not be enough drive for this. See this tech note (access level: everyone):

You may need to register for a free account to read it.

You may also be able to install a sort of dancer arm or tension measurement (like a load cell?) to serve as a speed trim to the drive.

Hi just a quick update if anyone out there is looking at this and wants to run a 4M inverter the way i do change parameter A453 that's set at factory default 8  to 1  this will allow the motor to stall and not go into fault mode

Because of your name... My daughters went to Coastal Carolina University, and their mascot is a Chanticleer...
