Adjust the tension on the right side rear using an allen wrench. Try 1/4 turn clockwise( should tighten). then run tread mill for 30 sec. to see if it centers itself. repeat again if not. if its to tight then turn the left side in a 1/4 turn

SOURCE: broken belt on treadmill
Sorry for bad news but there is no possible way to fix the belt once they come apart.It is best and safer to buy a new belt,there are many websites that sell treadmill belts if you do not have access to parts locally

Loosen rear tension and recent and tighten.
First grab the walking belt on an edge and lift up, It should only lift up 3 inches, this about the right tension
There are two guides underneath near the front make sure the belt is underneath them. (they touch the white side)
If OKay, remove the endcap byu the tension control bolts (two screws underneath) and make sure you have adjustment room (threads showing on bolts toward the rear)
these bolts should look about the same position with respect to the roller.
Run the machine on slow, walk on it and try to stop the walking belt, if it slips - turn both rear bolts 1 turn clockwise.,repeat until it doesn't slip
Get off and run the machine on slow 2mph, turn the bolt on the side the belt wanders to 1/4 turn clockwise. If it goes over fast you may need turn the bolt 1 full turn right away (it shouldn't). If its kinda of stable - speed up machine to 5-6 and repeat.
Note the front of the belt should be centered first, this is preset and usually doesn't need adjustment

Here are two solutions one is to get the belt centered on the treadmill
and the other is to tighten the belt.
There should be two bolts in the rear of the treadmill, one on each side. These bolts adjust the rear roller of the treadmill. The walking belt will always go to the side that is looser. To get the belt back on track, (if you can start the treadmill so the belt is running) tighten the bolt on the side that the belt has slipped to. Tighten the bolt a little bit at a time. If you tighten the bolt too much, then the belt will go to the other side.
To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns.

Testimonial: "Great info. Thank you so much!"
SOURCE: The belt of my treadmill
you either have a loose belt or possibly a bad bearing.
grab each roller (front and back of treadmill) and try and shake it up and down and front to back to
to make sure the bearings are ok...if they move a lot, then you probably have a bad bearing...if theres no movement, or very litte, they should be ok
now make sure the belts ok by looking at it and determining if one side is looser then the other (the right side should appear or feel looser) then tighten the right adjusting bolt till the belt tracks in the center. the adjuster is at the rear, one on each side of the rear roller.
HERE is a video and instructions of how to track your belt.
its pretty easy to fix and should only take a few minutes to get it right with a little trial an error if you never did it before.
let me know if you need further help.
