SOURCE: The belt on my treadmill keeps slipping/moving to

At the back of the treadmill, there are 2 adjustment screws, 1 on each side. They are used to move each end of the rear roller either forwards or backwards. I typically teach people to use the left hand adjustment screw because the direction you turn the screw is the direction the treadbelt will move. Turn the machine on and run it at the lowest speed, usually .5mph and while it's running, make an slight adjustment. If it's running while you do it, you will be able to watch the progress of the belt and it's easier to fine tune it this way. Using an allen key (you should have been supplied one with the machine) turn the adjustment bolt a 1/4 turn in the direction you want the belt to go (only from the left). Wait a few minutes and watch it carefully, you do not want it to run up against the side rails of the machine, this will shred the sides of the belt. You really shouldn't need to turn it more than a 1/4-1/2 turn to make an adjustment. Watch the belt migrate back towards the center and when it gets close, turn the screw slightly back a bit to stop the progress, or it will stop on it's own as it reaches the higher angle of the roller. Patience is key here, don't try to do it one morning on your way out to work. Give yourself 15-20min to focus on it and remember that as long as you don't use large adjustment increments and pay attention to where the belt is headed, you'll be fine.

SOURCE: belt slipping and moving

Here is a basic procedure that will work for the majority of treadmills out in the market:
If the walking belt has shifted to the left, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn the left rear roller adjustment bolt clockwise, and the right bolt counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn each. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centred. b. If the walking belt has shifted to the right, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.

Unplug the treadmill. Locate the console key and place the safety or reset key into the treadmill console. Replace any parts that need replacing, or is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill.

Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.

The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place.

Treadmill displaying temperature over for an mbh fitness.what are the possible causes?

The cause of this problem is because your powerboad need big power (Amp) to turn the motor (and the belt) This usually happens if your treadmill belt is not lubricate well or needs change. So, first try to lubricate your treadmill belt with silicone oil and be sure that treadmill deck is clean. If the problem continues you must change your treadmill belt.

How do i tighten my belt on a ironman treadmill

Hey Joe, at the back of the treadmill, you have the rear roller. The roller has a tension screw in both sides that are the adjusters as well. As you tighten the right side it will force the belt to the left, and vice versa. I turn the walk belt on to speed two, be carefull the belt will be moving. Slowly adjust one side and watch the belt move, then the other side until it centers. Shut it off, the belt should lift from the middle no more than two inches with a firm lifting force. That's it. You might need to tweek it to keep it centered.

Hope this helps, Matt

Belt is off center

Tighten the rear adjusting bolts until the walk belt it tight enough to lift about 1.5 inches at the sides of the walk belt. After you do this, Turn the treadmill on to speed setting 2, and be ready to tighten the side that the belt is closest to.( if the belt is against one side, start with that side) Tighten only 1/2 a turn at a time and watch the belt start to move. It wont take much once it starts to move. Only tighten each side ( if necessary) dont loosen the bolts. Once the belt is in the middle, leave it alone. The belt is now adjusted. You may see it travel to one side, breifly, but it will return on its own.

Hope this helps

When I power up my treadmil the belt does not move. If I step on the side the belt would then start to move until I move my foot.

In order of most likely cause. 1) Worn motor belt needs to be changed. Rear roller bolts need to be tightened as the walking belt has too much slack(2-3 inches lift on the edge of the belt in the middle on each side) 3) the nylon pulley on the front roller is slipping and a new roller is needed.

Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills

Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
