You need to adjust the tracking knob which is by the front handle that looks like a triangle head screw. Make sure the belt tension leaver is tight and the belt has enough tension on it. Quickly press and release the start switch and note the centering of the belt. It should be in the center of the bottom platen. If it is not, adjust the tracking knob and bump the switch again. If the belt is going in the wrong direction turn the knob the other direction. Once you are close the center of the platen, press the power switch to turn the unit on and lock the trigger. Firmly hold the unit vertically from the front handle. Fine adjust the tension knob to center the belt and make sure the belt is not hitting the case which will cause damage. You should be able to use the belt sander without the belt slipping off. Let the sander do the work, do not push down and limit the side to side motion. If the belt will not stay on then the belt is too large or the torsion spring needs to be adjusted to applying more tension on the belt and drive roller.

I wish I had one in front of me, but I don't. Brother used
two ways of holding the Platen (big black roller in place. Open the top cover
and look at the frame where the platen is held. You will likely see plastic
clips holding the axial that runs through the platen (85% of brother machines
have clips), or you will see that the axial runs directly through the frame. If
you see clips just squeeze the tabs and lift up. Note which side has the gear,
so that it is reinstalled the same way. If you don't have clips you will need
to loosen the Allen screws holding the knob to the platen roller, and the
roller will lift right out. If the label left any of the rollers sticky they
must be completely cleaned before reassembly, Goo-Gone is a good product to
remove gummy labels.
Best of luck, Ron
