How do i change the belt on my treadle singer sewing machine?

On a treadle sewing machine usually there is no adjustment on the tightness of the belt so you have to shorten it. There will be a metal clip holding the belt together and you can remove and cut the belt shorter and then put it back together. Be very careful to not cut too much off. Probably be a good idea to trim it a very little at a time.

The cord drives the machine from the foot peddle.

There is no "belt" size. You need to measure the distance with some yarn and buy some leather treadle machine belt. There are a few vendors on ebay. The machines had a "staple" of sorts that would hold the treadle belts together that might be hard to find.

THE belt that runs top to bottom does not move,do i need a new belt?whats the #?

If the belt is in good shape it may be either a seized drive train or a bad motor. Remove the belt and check to see if the motor runs when the treadle is depressed. Try turning the machine by hand and feel for resistance and listen for grinding, squealing or rubbing noises.
