Hey Andres,
Have you recently replaced this belt?... (is it a new one?) - Have you recently replaced the belt tensioner? ....if yes, maybe its the wrong sized pulley or the wrong tensioner. ...if no....check to make sure the tensioner still holds the belt tight..
,,About the belt .. if its new have gotten one that is too long, If not, the belt needs replacing with the correct one. If you go to O'Reillys or Auto Zone or Advance Auto, Make sure you have all the necessary info about your vehicle (year/make/model/engine size/a/c/ any accessories..) they will actually help you.. you can check to make sure all the pulleys are tight and the bearings are not worn out, Do these and reply to me.

How do you fit a new drive belt to a rockworth compressor because there doesn't seem to be ant adjustment

if this is a small compressor say 2 hp you leave everything alone make sure you have the right size belt and stretch it on like a rubber band.. The belt will be quite tight but thats the way they come. If you are concerned that the new belt is too tight or too loose mark the position of you motor with a felt pen remove the belt and move the motor forwards or backwards a small amount in line with your marks, then refit the belt. The main thing is that the motor shaft stays parrallel or close to it with the drive shaft of your pump.

How to tighten serpentine belt for 2003 Monte Carlo 3.8L

the belt is self adjusted by a spring loaded automatic belt tensioner, if the belt is noisy or seems loose either the belt size is wrong (if it was replaced recently) or the tensioner is defective or one of the belt idler pulleys is defective.

How do you tighten PTO belt?

If the belt is loose it probably needs replaced or has jumped out of one of the pulley or belt guards allowing it to be sloppy. Belts get stretched in many different ways, tall grass, grass getting in the pulley, or they just plain stretch. First though, check to be sure the belt hasn't jumped out of it's normal runway.
