Serpentine belt tension is controlled by the belt tensioner (idle pulley on a spring loaded arm). The arm may be corroded and not moving into the belt properly. Sometimes spraying the tensioner are at its pivot with penetrating oil and moving the arm back and forth will loosen it and allow proper tension to be restored. If not then the tensioner will have to be replaced. This is presuming that the correct belt is installed.
