Question about Nordic Track NordicTrack Treadmill, A2550
Ok i bought I used treadmill from a family member and I see the belt had pulled way to the left..Welli got home ajusted and tighten it up and ran on it for about 30 minutes and right back to the left it was again..I centered it a couple times and after about 30 minutes it pulls back to the left.I removed the cover over the motor and everything looks pretty good besides some belt dust but not a lot..Now there is a screeching sound that sounds like its coming from the top roller and the roller looks like it is kinda wobbly a bit when you close one eye and look real good at the edge of the roller..Also you kinda feel a little viberation sometimes like maybe a bad burn or someting..Any ideal what may be my problem ?? The name on the machine says Pro-form 485 PI
On the side of the treadmill where the tread is running into the foot rail (plastic). go to the rear of the machine and find the hole in the end of the plastic. There will be an allen wrench hole there. Use an allen wrench (should have come with the machine) and tighten this bolt (clockwise) 2 full revolutions. This should move the belt away from the plastic and possibly keep the belt from slipping. Good Luck, Tim

PROBLEM: The walking belt is off-center or slips when walked on SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, Start unit @ 1.0 mph using the hex key, turn the left idler roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn to move belt to the right. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. If the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the left idler roller bolt counterclockwise or clock wise 1/2 of a turn depends on the tension that will be on the belt take your time and walk on it to feel the belt underneath you Repeat until the walking belt is centered.

SOURCE: The belt of my treadmill
you either have a loose belt or possibly a bad bearing.
grab each roller (front and back of treadmill) and try and shake it up and down and front to back to
to make sure the bearings are ok...if they move a lot, then you probably have a bad bearing...if theres no movement, or very litte, they should be ok
now make sure the belts ok by looking at it and determining if one side is looser then the other (the right side should appear or feel looser) then tighten the right adjusting bolt till the belt tracks in the center. the adjuster is at the rear, one on each side of the rear roller.
HERE is a video and instructions of how to track your belt.
its pretty easy to fix and should only take a few minutes to get it right with a little trial an error if you never did it before.
let me know if you need further help.

I am not an expert on what you may need to order but I do want to give you a link in case that may be helpful... FitnessRepairParts.com has parts lists for several versions of the C2050... look for a decal or label on the machine to get the exact model number, then click on that model and look in the list for 'Roller, Front' or 'Roller, Rear' or 'Treadbelt.' Hope that helps.
Also if you need someone to come look at it you can find a list of servicers near you here
