Treadmill belt keeps sliding to the left

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 you2_bing.gif Repeat until the walking belt is centered.

SOURCE: The belt of my treadmill

Hi stewarvm,

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

How do I lubricate the walking belt ?


Video about How to Lubricate a Treadmill using Liquid Lube
  • This video will demonstrate how to properly lubricate your treadmill belt and deck. This demonstration is for the application of liquid lube.
  • To begin, clean the deck and belt by loosening the rear roller bolts 10 turns as seen in the video. It is best to loosen each side five turns and then repeat the process.
  • Now that the belt is loose you can take an old towel and place it under the belt as shown in the video. Move the towel up and down the deck, then using your hands pull the belt around half way to ensure you have completely cleaned the back of the belt. Then remove the towel.
  • Open your lube packet and use half of the package to make a half circle on the deck, from the front outer portion of the deck toward the center and then back to the outer edge. Use about half the package for this arc. Now repeat the process on the opposite side. Be sure to wipe up any excess oil as it is very slick!
  • Use your hand to move the belt around some more to begin spreading the lubricant out.
  • Now tighten the rear roller bolts back to the exact amount of turns they were loosened previously.
  • Power on and start the machine; let it run slowly for a few seconds to make sure the belt is staying aligned in the center of the deck area. If it is not centered correctly, make minor adjustments to correct the issue. Tighten the left bolt to move the belt to the right and tighten the right bolt to move the belt to the left. Now walk on the belt for a minute or so to fully distribute the lubricant.
  • This concludes today's demonstration of how to lubricate a treadmill using the liquid lube.

  • Use your hand to move the belt around some more to begin spreading the wax out.
  • Now tighten the rear roller bolts back to the exact amount of turns they were loosened previously. Remember to tighten only half way on each side then repeat the process.
  • Power on and start the machine and let it run slowly for a few seconds to make sure the belt is staying aligned in the center of the deck area.

Belt starting slipping, adjusted according to User's manual...belt still slips.


hi,
Here is the steps to adjust the treadmill belt,
(1). Turn off the treadmill and remove the plug from the wall outlet to make sure it doesn't turn on during the readjustment process.

(2).Tighten the roller bolts on the rear of the treadmill belt with an Allen wrench. Tighten both the right and left bolts with 1/4 turns.

(3).Avoid tightening the bolts more than 1/4 of a turn at a time. If the belt is tightened too much, it may cause damage to the belt, which would require a replacement.

(4).Plug the treadmill into the wall and press "Power."

(5). Select a program and begin walking. If the treadmill is still slipping, turn off the treadmill, unplug it and tighten the bolt a 1/4 turn again until it is properly adjusted.

watch the following video which will help you to do the same.All brand hve the same procedure for tighten the walking belt.


If then also the belt is slipping then you have to replace the running belt with a new one.


ok

My belt keep slipping. And I try tighten the ajustment bolts.


Make sure you adjust vthe motor belt first, it may be where the slipping is coming from. You should only be able to twist a properly tightened motor belt 45 degrees. After that, readjust the walk belt. If you have been tightening the walk belt trying to get the slipping out it may be too tight now. Use the instructions in your owners manual to adjust the walk belt. Also, lube under walk belt with the recommended lubrication . That will help the walk belt not too grab and take pressue off of both belts. Good luck

your roller ajustments are loose, loosing all the rollers front and back, re aline belt to center, tighten front roller first then tighten rear roller, Rear roller has 2 seperate ajusting allen bolts, 1 on each side, count the turns on each bolt when turning them inward, keep the count even turns on both allen bolts

Have a 4.9 treadmill and cant get it to adjust if i loosen bolts in back it slips if i tighten bolts on motor it quits pulling when i put weight on it can you help


Ok I really need more info but let's take a stab at it. The bolts in the back of the rear roller adjust the belt right and left. It also tightens and loosens. Ok there is also a drive belt from the motor that needs to be tight. Generally you should be able to twist the drive belt about 45 degrees. If it's more than that it probably needs to be tightened. If this is loose it will affect the walking belt the same as the walking belt being loose. So when your walking belt is slipping, make sure you tightened the right belt. Tightening the wrong belt can lead to other problems. Tightening the walk belt with the rear roller- turn both bolts clockwise equally to tighten. Remember the walking belt will travel to side with least tension. So to center belt, adj left or right side to fine tune. If belts are adjusted properly and machine stops when you walk on it, you have other issues. Could be the deck ( the board under the belt) and belt or the motor.
