* 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!

Why is the new belt on my dirt devil featherlite repeatedly slipping off? Everything else on it works fine and the b elt is the correct size.


Hello! There is no other part that goes on the motor shaft after the belt is put on. The tension of the belt keeps the belt from slipping off. If you have a brand new belt that keeps slipping off you may not have the correct belt for the vacuum. Be sure you replace with a genuine Dirt Devil belt and the specified belt style for your particular unit. Hope this helps! If you still need assistance feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Belt slips on bolens riding mower has new belt


there is a belt which drives the deck/blades, and another belt which transfers power to the transmission to move the mower. you do not specify which belt, but as they both have a tensioner, you need to locate the pulley which removes the slack from the belt and replace it and the spring which provides the tension. you had to release this tension in order to install the belt so you know exactly where it is. oftentimes a close examination will reveal that the belt was not put back on correctly. if it was slipping already, you replaced the belt and it is no better then replace the tension spring. if it was working fine and the belt broke due to wear and now it is a new belt and slipping i would closely examine the path of the belt all the way around and make sure it is in right. often times there are small dowel shaped steel keepers and guides which are supposed to hold the belt in but the belt has inadvertently been routed around them which makes it slip.

good luck

Replaced pressure line on power steering. now battery light comes on. belt squeeled when started, then stopped. Did power steering fluid get on belt and caused it to squeal and slip?


If you have a 4cyl then the belts for PS and alternator are separate. Taking a peek under the hood when the engine is running should give you a better idea if a belt is slipping, broken, etc. A common source of squealing is an alternator belt that is too loose and slips under heavy load charging the battery after startup. It's possible that some sort of problem happened due to replacing alternator belt but that belt slipping should be pretty easy to see. (again ... speaking of the 4cyl / 22RE enging)

Treadmill is slipping. Already tried tightening belt ... I could hear belt slipping as motor is turning


This sounds like either the drive belt is loose or the walking belt is old. First, check the tension on the drive belt. If the drive belt is not slipping, then walking belt may need to be replaced. I say may because without working on the unit, I cannot say that IS the problem.

Belt slipping have tried to tighten, just bought used


When the belt slips, it can be 2 different places. The trick is to look at the front roller when the belt slips. If the front roller stops with the walking belt, then the drive belt (between the motor and front roller) is loose and can't be fixed by tightening the walking belt. If the drive belt is slipping, it needs to be tightened or replaced. I need the brand and model number to help you further.

Timing belt on 1996 mazda protege slips during startup


Hello, this to me sounds like your fan belt slipping (not timing belt). To adjust the fan belt you need to undo your bolt on the alternator, pull it tight onto the fan belt and while holding it tight do the bolt back up tightly. this will stop yoour fan belt from slipping. I hope this helps.
