Walking belt or drive belt loose. If you get noise while this is happening your front roller is likely bad.

The problem you have is one of two things. 1 you have a loose walk belt, or 2 you have a spun front drive pully.

You need to remove the front cover to be able to observe the drive belt as it is turning on the drive pully( on the LH side of the front roller) try to stop the walk belt while traveling at speed setting 3. Hang on to the side handles, if the drive belt runs as normal, watch the front roller it will be slipping. If this happens you will need to replace the front roller.

It might just need a simple adjustment of the running belt that can eliminate the slipping refer to you owner's manual for the procedure. It will be close to all treadmill adjustments.
Here is a generic procedure for adjusting the belt:
If the walking belt slips when walked on. Run the treadmill @ 3 to 4 mph, walk for a few minutes, Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. Then repeat adjusting procedure until walking belt is properly tightened.

Belt sticks on one side while running

There are hex bolts on the bottom rear of both sides of your treadmill. Turn one side one direction and the other sides the other direction until the belt tracks in the middle of the platform.

The belt on the treadmill is sticking when i get on it but not if its just running on its own.

UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches above the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened

When i walk on it the belt sticks in places and i cant let go of the rails

If your belt is sticking there are 2 possible causes. Either the walking belt itself is loose or the drive belt. The way to check is look at the front roller when you step on the walking belt. If the walking belt stops, but the front roller continues to spin, the walking belt is loose and needs tightened. If the front roller stops when you step on the walking belt, then the drive belt needs tightened or replaced. The walking belt can be tightened fairly easily, there are bolts at the rear of the machine that adjust the rear roller. The drive belt is a little more involved and requires removing the motor hood. Check to see what the front roller is doing and I'll help you further.
