SOURCE: walking belt on image 10.0 tread mill slips,

There are adjustment screws on the very back of the deck… one on each side.

1. You will need a hex wrench that came with your unit (look on the side of the deck) sometimes it is attached to a bracket or look in your plastic bag with your instruction manual. If you cannot find it, do not worry, it is a common “hex” size. Purchase a "multi size” hex wrench at the hardware store"

2. Locate the screws on the back of the treadmill on the deck "where you walk" You will see one on each side.

3. With your wrench in hand, start your treadmill on a low speed and take note of which side the belt is "creeping" to the left or right.

4. If the belt is not centered and over to the left side take your tool and adjust the screw on the left side slowly a few turns until you notice the belt creeping back to the center....usually it does not take much adjustment.

5. Once you start getting the hang of what adjusting each particular screw does to the belt....You will be a pro in no time.

6. Once the belt centered, turn off the treadmill and unplug it. Take your hand and slide it under the belt about midway. The belt should feel "snug" against the deck. If it feels too loose...use your new found adjusting skills to tighten the belt adjusting each side a few turns…unplug…checking for tightness until you feel good about it.

7. Last suggestion: Some treadmills decks need lube to help it run smooth. Without it your deck will get worn and the belt will "stick" to the deck....not good. Buy the lube a sporting goods store or at a place that sells treadmills. If you cannot find any buy some spray on graphite.

If you haven't adjusted the belt refer to your owners manual for the proper procedure if you still have the same results then it could be caused by a lack of lubrication under belt or a worn belt.

How do I tighten a slipping belt

My tread mill has a bolt on each side at the rear end that I put a hex key in and turn to tighten. Do both sides the same to keep the tread even on the track. Don't over tighten. I have a different make but most operate the same.

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)



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 )
