TC20 treadles will not move after we disconnected pistons and then moved unit when we tried to reconnect pistons one treadles is too far down to comnect and will not move

The treadles can sort of overlap and one gets stuck on the other. Try to carefully grab the front of the one that is higher and pull it away from the other treadle, then it should be able to be lowered. If you have a second person they could pull the lower treadle in the opposite direction. Be careful not to pinch your fingers!

Walking Belt Fraying

The bow flex tc5 is an overpriced piece of equipment. The build quality is not great. There are ongoing documented problems with the belts fraying on this model. You can always order a new belt or adjust the side (loosening or tightening) your primary foot stepping side, but I would call bow flex and demand a new belt or replacement. You can mention there is a "risk of fall" due to poor workmanship. This will get their attention and you may even get a new treadmill or at least free belt. Call Bow flex customer service at 1-800-436-6549.
