SOURCE: i tighten the screws behind the belt but it still slips as i walk

Sounds like the motor drive belt is slipping,remove the motor cover,be careful some models have hidden screws in recessed areas underneath if you remove the correct ones the hood comes off easily. There is a bracket that has a bolt to adjust the motor belt tension.Also if you tightened the walk belt up it may be too tight which could cause it to wear or tear easier,the rule of thumb is tighten the walk belt just tight enough so it doesn't slip.

SOURCE: the walking belt slips to the left when walking

There are two allen bolts (one on each side) at the end of the machine. These bolts adjust the tension on the belt. If they are not adjusted evenly the beft will gradually shift of the more loose side.

SOURCE: Belt slipping on treadmill

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. 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. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

As soon as I step on the belt it quits running


You will hard pressed to believe this but the walk belt is most likely bad creating too much friction. If the walk board is grooved under the belt it must be replaced. If the walk board is smooth and glossy leave it alone. I have seen this issue with a slightly used newer treadmill.

B) Walking Belt/Motor Belt too Tight:


If you have adjusted the walking belt or motor belt recently, check for this problem. When the belts start slipping, some people just crank

down the belts and on treadmills, tighter is not necessarily better. The tighter the belts, the more the drive system has to work to keep

everything moving. You should be able to lift the walking belt (with the treadmill unplugged) in the center of the treadmill about 3" without

straining. Tighter belts should be loosen but make sure you don't create a dangerous slipping situation by loosening.

The motor belt (with the treadmill unplugged) should be able to be turned by hand to almost a 90 degree angle from its normal operating

position. Loosen the belt if too tight. Make sure to test for slipping

and if it does with the proper tension, replace the motor belt.

Belt is not the correct speed when you put ypur weight on it...slows down.have to put on 5 to get a 3 walk?


If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both idler roller bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 3 to 4 in. (8 to 10 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. . If the walking belt still slows then lubricate running deck the lube may be purchased from iconfitness.com

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift the edges of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

When running the belt is jerky and feels like it slips a bit Dan


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} First, ensure that it is the walking belt that is loose. There is a belt hidden under the hood that connects the front roller to the motor (motor/drive belt). Start the treadmill at 3 or so and carefully apply pressure to the walking belt until it slips/stops. Watch the front roller. If it continues to spin when the walking belt stops, it’s the walking belt. It the front roller stops with the walking belt, the motor belt is loose and needs adjusted or replaced.

To adjust the walking belt, locate 2 hex head bolts, one on either side of the deck on the very back of the machine. These bolts will be recessed inside the plastic covers. Your treadmill came with a tool for this, but if you can’t find it, a standard (not metric) allen wrench kit will work. It’s helpful to have a wrench in each bolt so that you can adjust them at the same time, but one will work.

The allen bolts thread directly through each side of the rear roller. As you tighten the bolts, it pulls the rear roller away from the front roller, tightening the walking belt. This also centers it; if you tighten one bolt, it pushes the belt towards the center of the walking deck away from the bolt you’re tightening. So if the belt is too far to the right, tighten the right bolt and it will move towards the center.

Place your wrenches in the roller bolts and turn the machine on to 3-4 miles an hour. Keep your fingers clear of the belt, it will eat them. This method is quick, because you can see the belt move as you tighten one side or the other. It takes a few seconds, but if you tighten the right bolt for instance, you will see the belt move to the left. If the belt is loose but centered, tighten each bolt ½ turn and then get on the machine and see if it slips. The user manual will tell you to pull it up a couple of inches to test the tightness, which is a relative method and doesn’t necessarily work. My wife can pull on the belt and get 2 inches, and I can probably get 3 or even 4 if I’m showing off. The best way to test it is to gradually tighten it until you can run on it without it slipping.

You should lube the belt a couple of times a year. You can get them from iconfitness.com

Good Luck!
