SOURCE: How do I repair the seam of the walking belt?

Be extremely careful when trying to trim a belt. Understand that many hazards exist when performing these steps that can result in serious injury. If you have any question whether you can perform these steps or not, please call a professional and do NOT attempt this repair.
There are two methods that can be used to trim a walking belt when it has developed a tattered edge:
1) Remove the belt from the treadmill for trimming.
a) All walking belts are cut at some point during their life, whether in manufacturing or later during service, so this will not compromise the integrity of the belt as long as you cut a straight line and do not leave a rough edge.
b) Remove the walking belt from the treadmill, lay the belt flat and even on the ground, and measure and equal distance on each end of the belt and mark the belt for cutting on each end of the belt. Cut no more than necessary to restore a smooth edge.
c) Use a piece of flat steel or other metal object that is straight and long enough and connect the two markings on the belt with the metal object.
d) Using a new razor knife, box knife, or similar instrument, cut the belt along the steel object. If the knife has a new edge, you should cut through the belt in one or two passes of the knife.
e) Check the belt for a smooth edge and reinstall the belt.

2) Cut the belt while it is mounted on the treadmill. This method should only be considered by those who are familiar with treadmills and very good with tools. This can be a dangerous process.
a) Track or center the belt off center to the opposite side of the tattered edge (i.e.- if the belt is tattered on the right side, track the belt off centered to the left side by about 1/2 to 3/4").
b) Operate the treadmill at a very slow speed. Usually 1.0 or 1.5 MPH will be sufficient.
c) Using both hands, line a new razor knife up on the tattered side of the belt. Make sure to cut no more than necessary to make a smooth edge.
d) With the belt moving and using both hands, lift the knife up and contact the belt making sure to hold the knife steady and keeping your hands and clothing as free from the moving roller as possible. You will not damage the roller to the point where it will hurt the operation of the treadmill.
e) Do not lower the knife until you see the belt separate from the tattered edge. Once this happens, turn the treadmill off, unplug the treadmill, and cut the tattered strip off the treadmill.
f) Track or center the belt and operate normally.

Testimonial: "A great solution & I am going to keep it ready. Using a previous idea, I glued it with Loctite Ultra Gel-a super glue for rubber. So far, so good."

SOURCE: The belt is sliping as I walk or run

* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!

The track at Oak Middle School is 1/4 of a mile for each lap. Jacob walked around the track and completed 7 laps in 30 minutes. What is the unit rate of Jacob's speed?

I edited the question to show 1/4 mile. Jacob walked 7X1/4 that is 1 and 1/4 miles. 1.25 / 30 = .041 miles in 1/2 hr. .041 x 2 is .082 miles an hour.

Two hikers at 11 miles apart walking toward each other. They meet in two hours. Find rate of each hiker if one walks 1.1mph faster than the other

If they meet in 2 hours, they are travelling at 6.5 Miles per HOUR (2 hours, equals 11 miles) if they were travelling at the same pace. if one is 1.1 MPH faster than the other, you steal 1.1 from one walker and give it to the other walker.

Try and work it out yourself. Let me know if you can't :>)

It is important that you know how to do things rather than someone just telling you the answer.
