If the walking belt slips when walked on. Using the allen wrench, 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 side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

How do I know if I need a new roller in the back?


Your problem may be as simple as a loose walking belt. It could also be that the belt guides on the underside of the deck is too wide. Ir could also be that your rear roller collapsed (there should be noise in this case) or your rear roller screw is broken or not holding tension for some reason. Try adjusting the belt again. Consider that the belt will move to the side of least resistance so if you tighten the left side the belt will move right and vise versa. Good luck.

It might just need a simple adjustment of the running belt that can eliminate the slipping refer to you owner's manual for the procedure. It will be close to all treadmill adjustments.
Here is a generic procedure for adjusting the belt:
If the walking belt slips when walked on. Run the treadmill @ 3 to 4 mph, walk for a few minutes, Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. Then repeat adjusting procedure until walking belt is properly tightened.

Belt tracking


Take the end caps and motor shroud off visually inspect the frame tension bolts to see if anything is bent. then loosen, ( count how rotation it took to loosen the so when tighten the belt up you won't have to guest at the tension ) the belt and edges of the belt to see if the weave is uneven this cause the belt to travel. If you can tip the treadmill on its side to inspect underneath to see if anything skewed. Take your time and observe the mechanical operation you may have the above a 1/2 a dozen time before you see the problem, other than that anything short of replacing the belt this my recommendation. Good Luck to you

How to do you adjust the belt on a Pro form crosswalk 380? The belt is getting loose and I lost the manual.


To adjust the belt: Less Belt Tension: turn both adjustment bolts on back of treadmill in a counter-clockwise direction. More Belt Tension: Turn both adjustment bolts equally in a clockwise direction. Center Adjustment (moves belt center to the left): Turn left-side adjustment bolt counter-clockwise. Center Adjustment (moves belt center to the right): Turn the left-side adjustment bolt clockwise.
An over tightened walking belt can raise the amp draw of your treadmill, contribute to seam separation on the walking belt, or both, so do not over tighten the walking belt.
You should be able to lift the belt in the center on the side by approximately 2” to 3”, if you cannot lift it by 2” to 3”, the belt is too tight.

I have a pro form cross walk advanced 525x when i jog on the treadmill the track will stop rotating mid stride


the treadmill should have tension adjusting screws. they'd be on the back of the treadmill where the belt wraps around the rear roller, they're inset and you'll need an allen wrench to adjust them. the screws adjust this rear roller. you'll want to tighten them to increase the tension. they also straighten the belt. if your belt is too fat to the right, you'll want to turn the adjustment screw on the right clockwise to tighten and this will bring the belt over to the left. and vica versa for the belt being too far to the left.

Belt slips when using treadmill


Hi, I don't know which particular model treadmill you have but most all treadmills use the same type of belt tension and tracking, which is an allen screw adjustment on the rear tension bar. One on either side. Treadmills normally come with an allen wrench, and could be attached on the treadmill somewhere, if not then use one of your own the proper size. Make the adjustment with the unit running at its slowest speed. Clockwise tightens the tension and will draw the belt. Good Luck, this should Fixya!
