There are two hexagonal screws on either side of the front rollers, and four inset hexagonal screws on the back rollers. Turn it on the lowest speed while turning the ones in front, one at a time. You'll see the tread move from one side to the other. Tightening the screws bring the rollers out, pulling the rubber tread taught, and to the left or right, depending on which screw you're turning at the time. The treads should roughly be the same tension, adjusting both inside and outside front screws for each tread. If you have the dual rear rollers, you'd then have to stop the machine after finishing the fronts and tighten the four inset hexagonal screws on each of the rear rollers. No adjustment per se, just tighten them. If you don't, you'll have a sort of clunking, or clicking noise from the imbalance. The single rear roller is a little different, and the adjustment I believe, can be found on this site:

Treadles on tc5000 wobble and rub


You have to realign treadles ,take the back cover out and at the base of your unit you'll see two slides , couple of screws and yellow bushings if bushings are still in a good shape you can align treadles , if they're broken or worn out you have to replace them , I think there are 8 of them total ,they're called IGUS bushing

I have a used Weslo Cadense 927 treadmill. I need to adjust the the tread, it's rubbing the side.


When you purchased the treadmill it came with an allen wrench to assemble the machine. That is the adjustment tool.
Inspect the rear plastic cap (the adjustment bolts are there) make sure it is not damaged. If the plastic is broken, it will need to be replaced. This job is not easy. If it is not broken, adjust the belt as follows..
If the belt is already rubbing, locate the adjustment screw at the back of the treadmill on the side that is rubbing.Adjust that screw tuning it 1/2 turn clockwise. Move the belt manually 3 full rotations.. If it is still rubbing, turn another 1/4 turn. Again move the belt manually 3 rotations. Once the rubbing stops, run the machine slowly and watch the belt from the back of the machine..

The belt has slowly moved all the way over to the right and is rubbing up against the right side. How do I adjust the belt back to the middle of the treadmill? It is a Health Rider XL Soft Strider.


There are two allen bolt adjustments on the bottom left of the treadmill as you are facing it to get on. o adjust the side-to-side position, turn one one way and the other the other way.

Tread is sliding and rubbing agianst right side of track.


Make sure treadmill is running when you adjust belt. The treadmill belt tracks as the belt goes around. I usually put machine on 2-2.5 if belt is not rubbing instantly. If belt is already against plastic, turn adj. counterclockwise on the opposite side about one full turn. You can usually move belt with your foot to see if it aligns any with turning on the treadmill. Once belt is not rubbing, turn treadmill on and continue alighing the belt.

I have the horizon elite 507 treadmill, how do I move the tread back to its normal position using the blue tool? thank you


Is it all the way over to one side? Is the belt damaged on one side? If it is damaged you will never get it to Track correctly.
If it is not damaged, then start the treadmill moving at about 2.5 mph, if the belt is all the way to the right then turn the right rear roller adjustment bolt, clockwise one full turn, and wait. did the belt move over a little? if yes the increase the speed to 5.0 mph and observe.
Make small adjustment from one side only until you get it straight.

Title: Treadmill Belt Problem


determine which side is off centered

If the tread is migrating from the left you need to adjust the tension adjustment on the right and side of the roller and make it tighter

Most adjustments are made by turning a set screw that moves the idler roller ( the roller that is at the end of the tread mill which is where you first get on)

TO ADJUST:

1 TURN THE POWER OFF AND UNPLUG AT WALL OUTLET

2 Locate the adjustment screw( remember you will adjust the side opposite the migration to tighten the roller)

3 manually force the treadmill belt over toward the proper path( I do this by taking my hand and sliding my fingers under the belt and lift the belt as I hand roll it

4 Turn the adjustment screw counter clockwise one revolution

5 plug in then turn on and see if it stays in place

6 Keep repeating the process ( steps 1,2,3,and 4 )
