There should be an allen head bolt on each side at the rear of the treadmill going throughthe rear cover into the tail [rear] roller. Turn each one 1/4 turn at a time equally untill slipping is stopped. If belt tracks more to one side tighten slightly more on that side.

if your walking belt is slipping it has loosened up. there are two adjustment bolts on the end of the treadmill. one on either side. these are allen heads. tighten clockwise to remove the slack. first start with treadmill running at 2 mph. tighten both one full turn. let belt adjust. check the centering of the belt. whichever side it is closer to tighten that side about a half turn. let belt adjust after each adjustment for a min.once belt is centered and if it still slips tighten both bolt evenly
If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt
is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift the edges of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

Using the hex key, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise,
1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly
tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the
walking belt 2 to 3 inches above the walking platform.
Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Then,
plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully
walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until
the walking belt is properly tightened. Now if this does not solve this problem then check the drive belt and adjust accordingly, also reverse the process of the above mentioned
I think you are talking about the front roller. It has a rubber sleeve that helps to grip the walking belt. Sometimes you can tighten this enough to keep it from slipping but you run the risk of overtightening and damaging both rollers. We recomend replacing that roller.
There should be adjustment screws on the back left and right sides. The screws will be horizontal with the tread, and probably need an allen wrench to tighten. If the tread runs straight, tighten each side 1/4 turn at a time to keep them even. Check the tread after each adjustment, and stop as soon as the tread quits slipping.
This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the
walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two
bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the
back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a
time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other
side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn,
check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten
the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do
not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2
turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it
could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt,
start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor
then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once
the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third
problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to
be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.
