* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!

Remove blade drive belt. turn each blade by hand. Sounds as if you have bearing problems. Each spindle has an upper and lower bearing of the same size. They are notorious for going out! You can get them at most any auto parts store. Also check the tensioner pulley bearing. They go out quite often. As for the jerking, make sure the two drive disengage rods are fully in. Check tension on drive belt and belt. These belts get worn quickly. Be sure to blow the trash and dirt from your mower after each use. Especially the Hydraulic motors and the mower deck. This will save you lots of trouble. If you wash the mower, be sure and run the blades and Hrdroes to get water dried from bearings and pulleys and belts.

How do I tighten my drive belt on my simplicity lawn tractor because it keeps slipping off when I make left turns?


Check air pressure in your tires, and if you look around your deck pulleys you may find 1/4" adjustment bars that you can loosen and move in towards your pulleys. These bars, if you have them there, keep the belt from falling off. But my first suggestion should help you. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

I would lower the deck to the lowes setting and look between the frame and the deck toward rear wheels and check the drive belt it sounds like it is slipping or busted.

Adjust belt tension husqvarna snowblower


Remove the plastic cover that's protects the belts. Inside you should find two different size of belts. The big one is the only one that can be adjusted. It has a tensioner on it. Just slacken the bolt and it should be able to be moved in towards the belt. Also, some may have a system of shims. Remove the shims from the pully to get the belt to ride higher in the pully groove. Good luck

Have a spring that I have no clue where is suppose to go or where it attaches


OK, the pulley I see brings tension on the belt to turn the blades. It normally rides against the back side of the belt. Let someone move the lever towards the engage belt position. At that point the pulley will move away from this last position I see. That would mean that the spring goes away from where I see it now (at the end of the video). There will be a good bit of pulling to get it to where it belongs cause it needs a lot of tension to not let the belt slip. Oh yeah, the belt normally is pretty worn out when this starts happening.

My 2007 42" troybilt riding mower jerks in forward.


Inspect your drive belt. You could have some bad spots in the belt. A new belt will probably solve your problems. Also check your pulleys for any oil on them that would cause slipping.
Let me know if this helps.
thanks

1998 Ford Escort Timing Belt Disapearing?


Sounds like the metal collar that fits between the cam gear & the belt was left out.Good luck,
ChevRev P.S. This should be a round metal collar with a curve towards the cam gear to keep the belt from riding towards the cam gear .Without it the belt will slowly shred as it makes contact with the cam gear.Hope this helps you.
