SOURCE: How do you adjust the belt for a Weslo Cadence 815 treadmill?

Hi, I don't have a manual on your particular treadmill but most all treadmills use the same type of belt tension and tracking, which is an allen screw adjustment on the rear tension bar. One on either side. You should have been provided an allen wrench with your treadmill, if not then use one of your own the proper size. Make the adjustment with the unit running at its slowest speed. Clockwise tightens the tension and will draw the belt. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

SOURCE: instructions for changing the walking belt on my

1. Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood.

2. Use a permanent marker like a Sharpie and mark the roller positions on the bolt on the front roller and bolts on the rear roller- not all front rollers have this adjustment bolt.

3. Loosen the walking belt at the rear of the treadmill.

4. Remove the front roller adjustment bolt.

5. Some higher end treadmills use straddle covers that have an undermount or slide mount. If you don't see staples or bolts on the top of the cover, do not pry them up. If you do have one stapled or screwed down, use a flat head screwdriver or similar instrument, pop the plastic deck cover on the right hand side up (if you are standing on the treadmill like you are using it, the deck cover on the right side). If you see screws, simply unscrew and remove the screws. Screws are included to reattach the cover near the end of installation.

6. Remove the deck boltsmost have 3 or 4 bolts.

7. Once the deck is loose on the right side, completely remove the screws from the rear roller. Be careful with the plastic endcaps. The endcaps and the roller need to be removed in this step.

8. One person should hold the deck up and hold the front roller in position near the pulley while a second person removes the old walking belt (some models that do not fold and a very few number that do have a side handrail on the right side that attaches at the base of the treadmill…if yours does, remove this handrail before removing the belt). If you are talented, you can do this with a single person.

9. With one person holding the deck up and holding the front roller in position near the pulley, the second person should reinstall the new walking belt. Once the belt is in place, raise the deck up again and look underneath to make sure the belt is in the center of the belt guides that stick down from the deck underside. When tensioned, the belt guides should make the outside edges of the walking belt turn toward the center of the belt.

10. Replace the rear endcaps and rear roller and start the rear roller bolts. DO NOT TIGHTEN THE REAR ROLLER BOLTS IN THIS STEP.

11. Refasten the deck bolts. Go ahead and tighten the deck bolts fully in this step.

12. Refasten the front roller bolt and return it to the marked position (it was marked in step 2).

13. Replace if you have undermount straddle covers or fasten the plastic side deck cover with the enclosed screws if yours were screwed or stapled down. Removing the staples in the deck with a pair of pliers before reattaching the deck cover is not required but will make it easier to reattach.

14. Retighten the walking belt to the marked positions on the rear roller bolts.

15. Check the walking belt for proper tension by lifting it 2” to 3” in the center of the belt.

16. Test the treadmill for slippage and make adjustments (if needed) for lateral centering or tracking.

17. Once the belt tests good, replace the motor hood.

SOURCE: Adjusting the walking belt

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.

When i am walking on the band it seems as if i am slipping


This could be 1 of 3 things. Either the walking belt need to be tightened, or the rubber motor belt is slipping (under the front hood) or the pulley has come loose from the roller.
First tighten the walking belt using the allen key provided when you purchased the machine. Locate the 2 adjustment bolts at the back of the machine and tighten (clockwise) both bolts 1 turn. Retry the machine. If there is no noticeable difference, remove the hood and see if the rubber belt is slipping. If so tighten the belt by adjusting the motor.

After walking about 15 seconds the belt slows way down and stops completely.


The walking belt slows when walked on the walking belt maybe overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged or the opposite the drive and /or running belt may need tightening. Last thing would be that the belt needs lubrication to be applied between belt and deck.

Lubricating a treadmill


The only lube required is between the walking belt and the deck. You can get the lube from iconfitness.com. Lift the walking belt and squirt some on the deck from each side, underneath the belt in the area where you usually walk. Walk on it for a few minutes to spread the lube around.

How do i tighten my belt ..it goes from one side to the other


First check that the treadmill is level. Then adjust levelers if possible. Most treadmills will have a bolt at the rear of the tail roller one each side to adjust belt tracking. If it is tracking to the left tighten the left , for each adjustment on one side make equal and opposite adjustment on the other side to avoid over tightening the belt. 1/4 turn at a time
