SOURCE: proform treadmill belt won't stay centered.

Adjust the tension on the right side rear using an allen wrench. Try 1/4 turn clockwise( should tighten). then run tread mill for 30 sec. to see if it centers itself. repeat again if not. if its to tight then turn the left side in a 1/4 turn

SOURCE: the belt on my treadmill is off to one side. how

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.

If the walking belt is off-center, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, use the allen wrench to turn the left rear roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn; if the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the bolt counterclockwise 1/2 of a turn. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centered.

SOURCE: On my Sears ProForm 730 treadmill, I cannot make

The belt does not need to be replaced more than likely. The problem is probably because that adjustment bolt is stripped out causing it loosen and keeping it over on that side. ProForm sells star washers that help them stay steady and not slip out. I would call them and ask for a couple of star washers and a new adjustment bolt for that left side.

The belt has shifted to the left, how do I move it back over? And it sounds louder than normal.


Check the rear endcaps for damage. If they are OK, find the allen key that came with the treadmill (you used it to assemble the machine) and go to the back of the machine. If the belt is rubbing, find the left adjustment bolt and turn the screw 1/2 turn clockwise. Now, by hand move the belt a couple revolutions. If it still rubs, repeat the procedure till the belt stops rubbing. Now run the treadmill about 3MPH and fine adjust the belt by turning the screw 1/4 turn until straight.
If the belt is not rubbing, run the machine (3MPH) and adjust the left bolt clockwise 1/8 - 1/4 turn watching closely till the belt is centered.

I have the Incline Trainer X7i. i lost the manual. the belt is tracking to the left and rubbing the side. how do i adjust the tracking to get it back to center?\r\nthank you,


Find the allen key that came with the treadmill. It is used to assemble and adjust the treadmill.
Locate the 2 adjustment screws at the rear of the machine. If the belt is shifting to the left, tighten the left screw (turn clockwise) and the same if the belt goes to the right, tighten the right.
Only turn the screw 1/2 turn and move the belt manually to shift the belt. If it requires more, turn another 1/4 turn, very little adjustment may be required to straighten the belt. Once the belt stops rubbing, start the machine running slowly (1-2 mph) and observe the belt FROM DIRECTLY BEHIND THE MACHINE. Carefully adjust the rear roller till the belt is as close to center as possible making small adjustments, 1/8-1/4 turn clockwise of the adjustment screws.

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.

Walking belt on NordicTrack C1900 is to loose, how do I tighten it? When walking on it when u get to level 4 it just about throws u


Tighten the rear roller bolts evenly with the unit off. The correct tension is when you firmly lift up on the right and left edges in the middle of the walking belt and get 2-3 inches gap above the walking board. If one side is looser than the other, the walking belt may wander sideways. Turn the rear roller screw on the side that it shifted to in a clockwise manner(1/2 turn at a time). Test on a low speed and adjust as needed. (you may manually recenter the walking belt with your foot if it shifted too far to one side and is rubbing on the plastic edges.) You likely have a worn motor belt that needs changing or even a pulley on the front roller that is slipping and needs replacing. They all cause slippage.

there should be adjustment screws on the rear roller.
only adjust one of them (usually the left) if the belt rubs on the left turn the screw clockwise 1/4 turn and if the belt rubs on the right turn counterclockwise. Make small adjustments until the belt stays in the center
