There should be a tracking adjustment knob on the side of the sander behind the front roller. Run the saw and adjust this knob to center the belt. You will probably have to do this every time you change belts. Hope this helps you...

SOURCE: BELT SANDER ADJUSTMENT

The Front Roller may have become Hard and the belt won't hold when you adjust just rough up the roller.

SOURCE: belt sander adjustment

There should be a knob on the front of the sander which adjusts the front roller on the sander. If the belt runs off in the same direction each time try turning the knob as the sander is running and while watching the belt. If turning the knob one direction does not work try turning the other direction. If turning the knob does not have any affect on the way the belt tracks on the sander then you probably have a broken or missing part on the front of the sander. This may require taking the sander to a service center.

SOURCE: I need manual for Craftsman 315.11720 belt sander

On my model 315.11720 3"x21" Craftsman belt sander to change out sanding belts you push the front roller in until it clicks to lock in its retracted position (a pry bar may help here), switch out sanding belts then unscrew the tracking tensioner a bit on the opposite side with a allen wrench until the roller snaps back in place. I never remember anything about using a screw driver to force it back forward position again. Then readjust the tracking if necessary with a few short sanding load tests and you're good to go. Oil is dropped in the front roller center by removing the flat head screw - it should say "Oil Here" around the screw.

Have a skil 7500 belt sander, belt has wrapped around drive, how can I fix this


You basically have to keep dismantling the tool untill you can get the belt out, then re-assemble the tools again. Sorry to be so basic but thats about the only way to solve this problem. Sometimes you can cut the belt up and remove it, but most times you have to disassemble the tool some.
