Re: the tension roller have come off the belt.
Usually this means the belt is broken,the belt may have just been old
and worn out and it was time to replace it,or perhaps the wheels locked
up or the idler and caused the belt
to break. Look around for stiff wheels, bad bearings, glides and
idlers. Its a good idea to oil the rollers with some temp resistant oil
such as zoom oil. Dont use WD40 as this stuff is highly flammable and
may cause a fire.

Most machines you should be able to slide your hand under belt, only to about the center of your palm or maybe your thumb.
if walking belt tension is correct. make sure the delt has lube on it. Your owners manual will determine what type (wax or silicone) or manufacturer to use.
When inspecting the deck (laminated board under the walking belt, which it slides on top of), check for wear or damage.
Worn decks and belts should both be replaced at the same time.
Beyond a walking belt area issue, check the drive belt under the motor hood. connecting the drive motor to the front roller. try twisting the belt on its axis. about a 30degree deflection would be standard. If this belt is loose, the front roller is loosing its drive.
Sounds primarily like a belt/deck lube or wear issue.
TO LOOSEN THE BELT TENSIONER PULLEY ASSEMBLY, THEN POSITION A CAMSHAFT BELT ADJUSTER TOOL T74P-6254-A OR EQUIVALENT ON THE TENSION SPRING ROLL PIN AND RETRACT THE BELT TENSIONER AWAY FROM THE TIMING BELT.TIGHTEN THE ADJUSTMENT BOLT TO LOCK THE TENSIONER IN THE RETRACTED POSITION. INSTALL NEW TIMING OVER THE CRANKSHAFT SPROCKET AND THEN COUNTERCLOCKWISE OVER THE AUXILIARY AND CAMSHAFT SPROCKETS MAKING SURE THE LUGS ON THE BELT PROPERLY ENGAGE THE SPROCKET TEETH ON THE PULLEYS. BECAREFUL NOT TO ROTATE THE PULLEYS WHEN INSTALLING THE BELT.RELEASE THE TIMING BELT TENSIONER PULLEY ALLOWING THE TENSIONER TO TAKE UP THE SLACK. IF THE SPRING DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH TENSION TO MOVE THE ROLLER AGAINST THE BELT.AND BELT HANGS LOOSE, IT MIGHT BE NECESSARY TO MANUALLY PUSH THE ROLLER AGAINST THE BELT AND TIGHTEN THE BOLT. YOU WILL NEED BELT TENSIONER TOOL OR EQUIVALENT.YOU CAN GO ON LINE INTERNET FIND THE BELT TENSIONER TOOL.SHOULD COST TOO MUCH.YOU CAN SEE IF AUTO ZONE HAS ONE TO RENT YOU.
If belt hesitates or slips when walking on unit it may be caused by either a loose walking belt or a loose drive belt. To determine the cause
perform the following test: Stand beside Tread-Climber® fitness machine and set speed to 2 MPH. Step on one treadle and attempt to stop
movement. If one belt stops but roller at rear and other belt continue to turn walking belt tension should be adjusted. If both belts stop but motor is still turning the drive belt tension should be adjusted.
Adjust walking belt tension at the front of the unit using the provided hex wrench on the exposed adjustment bolts located on each side of each
front roller. Be sure to adjust both bolts on each roller the same amount as to not disrupt belt alignment. Tighten (turn clockwise) each adjustment bolt in full turn increments. After each adjustment, restart unit and check to see if belt slippage has been eliminated. Repeat if necessary.
As a general rule, the belt should be kept as loose as possible. However, the belt must not slip on the rollers in normal use. Possible overtension can be quickly checked by walking on the belt at a speed of 3 mph The belt must slip on the front roller if you brake the belt with your feet, holding onto the hand rails, while you walk. If the belt does not slip, the tension is too high and the rear roller must be loosened.
The belt tension and alignment is done by adjusting the rear roller position with the attachment bolts at the back of the treadmill a 1/4 turn at a time until correct tension attained. T
Either front roller may need to be replaced or the motor drive belt may need to be adjusted.This problems are caused when a walking belt is worn out and in need of replacement.Too much tension can cause bearing failure in the motor and the front roller and front roller pulley failure.
Motor drive belt adjustment:The motor drive belt is adjusted independently from the walking belt. Some newer models have an auto tensioner which is a lever that has a wheel that puts pressure on the drive belt and a spring on the other end that automatically loads the belt to the proper tension. You should not adjust these since they are preset. Tension can be affected slightly by adjusting the tension of the walking belt but if you have a slipping problem, the drive belt will require replacement. If your drive belt is too loose, it will slip on the front roller pulley or the motor pulley. If it is too tight, it will increase your amp draw to the point that you may have an electronics or motor problem. Due to this, it is better to be on the safe side and replace a drive belt rather than risk over tightening it.
You have to remove the back of the dryer and expose the motor and drive assemblies.
Check the drive belt idler pulley
Check for any strange sounds coming from the motor
Check the drum support rollers - they support the dryer drum, usually in 3 places. They can sometimes be lubricated, but generally don't last that long because there is usually roller shaft damage by then, requiring replacement.
Looking at the owner manual, there is no tensioner assembly. If the motor is fixed in place and not loose, then you either have the wrong belt, or the brush roller is not properly installed, or the brush roller is worn out where the belt goes around the brush roller.
You either have the wrong size belt, most likely too small, or you have installed a new belt incorrectly. When you open the cover on the bottom of your vac, you will see the pulley that moves as you flip the switch from floors to carpet. The belt does not go around this pulley. When activated(carpet) the pulley puts tension on the belt causing it to turn the roller. When switched back to hard floors, the belt looses tension allowing motor to cause suction but disabling roller. Also, the dial on top of vac is only to direct suction, not for disabling roller
There is no adjustment. As they wear they cut the groove in the roller deeper. Sure fix,and what Hoover will tell you to do is to replace the roller. If your like me though that isn't any good. so what I did was wind wax coated dental floss into the groove that the belt rides in and in and then put a couple of drops of super glue to hold the end and it works like a charm. Don't put too much in there the belt has to have a groove to ride in.
