Question about Exercise & Fitness
A good way to test your walk belt to see if it is slipping is to stand on side rails with treadmill running about 4mph and while holding onto handrails keep one foot on the side rail and put your one foot on the center of the belt in a slight stomping motion,if the belt is loose you will feel it slip. To adjust a loose belt tighten each screw at back of treadmill 1/2 tun each until the slippage goes away. Be sure not to over tighten belt as this will cause excessive wear.If the belt has shifted to one side and you need to center it, go to the side it has shifted to and turn the screw clockwise 1/4 turn at a time until it centers.

if it really is the walking belt that is slipping keep tightening the adjustment screws till the belt will not slip when you try to stop it ( set speed to about 3 and then with your foot try to stop belt from spinning - you should be able to make the motor and whole machine come to a stop ) make sure it is really walk belt spinning and it isnt the motor belt slipping. (if it is motor belt slipping when you try to do the stop the belt trick i just described you will see the walk belt and front roller stop but still hear the motor turning) once you get walk belt tight enough so it doesnt slip then you can worry about keeping the belt centered.
let me know if you need more help on this and let me know how the stop the belt test went

I found the solution on the Internet. Allen head bolts on each end of the frame can be turned to loosen or tighten the belt.
