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.

Unplug your treadmill and remove motor shroud ,locate Motor control board their a series of LEDs . Now without getting on treadmill hit start look down and you should a light starting to flicker this is your PWM signal, t the upper console sends a signal to the lower board and instructs the motor to start. This tells me that the upper board and cable are functioning properly and our problem is either the board or motor.
DC motors can be easily tested in a number of ways. Many times a motor is replaced only to find another problem exists so be sure to test the motor if you think it is a problem. Methods to test a motor: 1) Cordless drill battery- get a fully-charged, 18 volt (preferred) cordless drill battery and on most treadmills connect the red and black motor leads to the battery (some have different colors but if you have two wires and get it hooked up backwards, the motor will just run backwards and won’t be harmed). If good, the motor should operate at about 1 MPH. 2) Car battery- these are 12VDC high amp batteries so the motor will turn slowly but you can walk on the belt. Always be careful with battery acid on these things so we don’t recommend bringing them in the house…take the treadmill to the battery.
If the motor test good then all fingers point to the Motor Control Board replace the board. When was the last time lubricated the running deck?
Answer: Never ! Then I suggest you purchase lubricant and apply it on the deck about 75% to 85% of the problems are belt and deck related.

Testimonial: "Many thanks for prompt response, seems that the treadmill works only when in the upright position and not the horizontal as per normal. Gonna have to learn to run up walls i guess"
I know this is an old thread, but if you are still trying to change between mph and km, then follow these instructions.
The setting is changed by a switch on the console circuit board. Unplug the power cable. You will need a medium philips screwdriver. The console is fixed to the frame with 4 screws, climb under the console and remove 2 screws from the top and 2 screws from the bottom. Get back up and lift the console up slightly making sure you do not dislodge any cables from either the left or right-hand side of the console. Look under the console from the left-hand side, in the middle of the circuit board you will see a small slide switch (silver casing with black slider), slide it to the other position. You will see next to the switch the letters mph and kpmh. gently reseat the console, put the 4 screws back in, the console should now display the speed in kmph when you plug it back in and turn it on.
All the best
