The walking belt on the Weslo Cadence 950 treadmill I have is off center. It needs to be moved over 1/4'' or so, it is rubbing.

Here are two solutions one is to get the belt centered on the treadmill and the other is to tighten the belt.

There should be two bolts in the rear of the treadmill, one on each side. These bolts adjust the rear roller of the treadmill. The walking belt will always go to the side that is looser. To get the belt back on track, (if you can start the treadmill so the belt is running) tighten the bolt on the side that the belt has slipped to. Tighten the bolt a little bit at a time. If you tighten the bolt too much, then the belt will go to the other side.

To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns.

The belt keeps moving towards the left side of the treadmill and rubs the side. How can I adjust the belt to fix the problem? It is a Weslo Cadence SR12 model. Thanks!


There are Allen bolts on both sides of the bottom on the front (away from the console) of the treadmill. Turn one one way and the other the other way to adjust the belt. If this does not work, your belt is probably worn and stretched and needs to be replaced. See Treadmill Parts to order a new one.

Walking surface will only move very slowly. The belt seems tight enough, tried to tighten 1/4 turn, still not moving properly. Treadmill is a Weslo Cadence 450, bought a few years ago. Thanks


lift the sides of the w/belt the hieght should be 2-3 inches. if more to loose,tighten it up. still have a issue take hood off and check the motor belt. if you find a bunch of black dust. your belt is worn or on its way out.PS you can find the belt on the web.

The walking deck on my Weslo Cadence 975sel slides to the right and causes a loud rubbing noise. How can I correct this problem? Thanks,


Find the allen key that came with the machine. If you don't have it, you will need a 3/16" allen key to adjust the roller.
If the belt is pulling to the right, adjust the right screw by turning it clockwise 1/4 turn with the belt moving. You may need to do this more than once. Between adjustments, watch the belt closely to see how much it moves to the left.
Unless something dramatic has happened to the frame or some other part, the amount of adjustment should not be too great..

Walking belt slows down to almost a stop when i get on it


I believe under the motor shroud on the circuit board their should be 2 pots 1 adjusts torque 2. adjusts speed try adjusting them and see if that take care of the problem if not. worse case it might be the drive motor.

How do you adjust the belt for a Weslo Cadence 815 treadmill?


Hi, I don't have a manual on your particular treadmill but most all treadmills use the same type of belt tension and tracking, which is an allen screw adjustment on the rear tension bar. One on either side. You should have been provided an allen wrench with your treadmill, if not then use one of your own the proper size. Make the adjustment with the unit running at its slowest speed. Clockwise tightens the tension and will draw the belt. Good Luck, this should Fixya!
