Hi, Most all treadmills use the same type of belt 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!

Walking belt not properly aligned

There are two holes on each side of the back covers of the treadmill. They have the adjustment bolts in them for the rear roller and It will require an Allen wrench to adjust it. If you tighten one of the bolts it causes the belt to move away from that side. So if it's the left side of the belt that's moving close to the rail then tighten the left side and vise versa for right. Turn the unit on and set the speed to about 3. Tighten the side that the belt closer to the side rail about a quarter turn. Be patient and give it a minute to settle after you adjust it. Repeat until the belt has moved back to center. If it moves too far just back it off a bit.

I need a guide on how to change the belt on the crosswalk GT model no. 297390. Do you have a guide or manual that would help. thank you.

This is not a specific guide but a general tutorial for adjusting your treadbelt that may be helpful:

The same website also sells an owner's manual for the Proform 831.297390 crosswalk GT if you need to purchase a new one.

Alternatively, you can try Icon's service website and look for the manual for a free download.

The treadmill seems to work fine at first then the belt kinda sticks. It like stops and goes. Electrical seems fine

It's possible that your treadbelt needs lubrication, or simply adjusting. Here is a tutorial on adjusting your treadbelt:

Here is one link to purchase a lube kit, there are probably many others online also:

Should you actually need to purchase a new treadbelt, I would try to identify which specific model of the Proform 530 you have from this list and then in the parts list for that treadmill scroll down to "Treadbelt"

If I stand on the belt it stops moving

Unplug unit remove motor shroud so you can see the drive belt, plug in unit then start it you will be able to see whether the drive belt or running is actually causing the problem.If it is the running belt then turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise in equal quarter turn increments until treadbelt stops slipping. NOTE: Be sure to run on treadbelt to ensure that the treadbelt does not slip while under load. Use 1/4" allen wrench
If the drive belt is slipping then to adjust the belt you must loosen the adjusting bolt on the motor frame then hold the motor by hand applied tension to belt then tight bolt you should be able to twist the drive belt no more then 45 degrees if you can repeat adjusting process.

I have the horizon elite 507 treadmill, how do I move the tread back to its normal position using the blue tool? thank you

Is it all the way over to one side? Is the belt damaged on one side? If it is damaged you will never get it to Track correctly.
If it is not damaged, then start the treadmill moving at about 2.5 mph, if the belt is all the way to the right then turn the right rear roller adjustment bolt, clockwise one full turn, and wait. did the belt move over a little? if yes the increase the speed to 5.0 mph and observe.
Make small adjustment from one side only until you get it straight.

Treadmill adjustment general lines?

"The best treadmills are those that provide you easy access to belt tracking. But, even the best treadmills with the most easily accessible belt tracking are also susceptible to stretch slightly under initial use. That is why it is important that you adjust the tread belt every so often to keep it away from stretching. Most manufacturers include the Allen wrench (a tool consisting of a hexagonal head and an L-shaped bar) in the package when you buy a treadmill from them. Use it to tighten both the belt adjustment screws clockwise. If your manufacturer did not supply you with an Allen wrench, use another of the right size. A ¼ turn, clockwise should tighten treadbelt if it has loosened. The screws for belt adjustment are usually located at the rear end of the treadmill. Some belts do require looser running than others so don’t be surprised if your treadbelt is a little loose even when you haven’t actually used it. Check the user’s guide before making adjustments just to make sure that whatever you are doing is correct. Moreover, be sure to keep the belt running at a low speed of around 3 mph when adjusting the belt tracking. This is the ideal speed when making any adjustments with the screws. Maintaining your treadmill is necessary to upkeep it's performance and looks. A little bit of adjustment here and there can make your treadmill a life long companion. "
