Is it the walking foot that is squeaking? No one mentions that the moving metal parts need a touch of oil to keep the walking foot working. Just be sure to clean off any excess before using on your fabric.
What is the problem? If the boots need dried out, do that. If the problem is caused by the upper squeaking at the flexpoint, a drop of extra virgin olive oil on the flex point will take care of that. If it is the layers of the sole squeaking when you walk, gluing them together can help.
If you have off road tyres with big nobbles the squeaking noise is the tread moving on the road . when the nobble hits the road it tends to slide forward and as the rubber compresses it then expands as the nobble leaves the road. Something like walking on lino with rubber soled shoes that squeak as you walk
belt is too loose, belt is too tight, belt is worn out.
Try to lift the belt and get your hand under it in the middle of the deck. If you cannot reach, it is possible that your belt is too tight. Another clue for this would be the belt "curling" on both sides at the edges. Try to loosen the belt, gradually and testing it along the way.
If on the contrary you can easily slide your hand under the belt from one side to the other, it is more likely that the belt is too loose. The squeaking might be due to the belt not being "square" on the deck. Try to loosen it even more until you can slide it with your hands across the deck. And have it aligned evenly at the front and back. Then retighten and adjust the tracking at low speed.
!!! Do not over loosen as the bolts might come out of the back roller.
A worn out belt might squeak and skip when its old.
