SOURCE: i tighten the screws behind the belt but it still slips as i walk

Sounds like the motor drive belt is slipping,remove the motor cover,be careful some models have hidden screws in recessed areas underneath if you remove the correct ones the hood comes off easily. There is a bracket that has a bolt to adjust the motor belt tension.Also if you tightened the walk belt up it may be too tight which could cause it to wear or tear easier,the rule of thumb is tighten the walk belt just tight enough so it doesn't slip.

SOURCE: belt is slipping on a proform 740cs treadmill.

Similar solution on a ProForm 500i. Symptom was that the belt would slip whenever you'd step down.
Solution was to use an Allen wrench to tighten the bolts at the back (behind) of the running deck. Had to go two full turns. Careful to unplug first, and careful to tighten each exactly the same amount.
Also wiped the parts of the platform I could reach under the belt with vinegar water, since they were gunky.
These two things fixed the problem

How to adjust the running belt??


Check page 27 in the owner's manual:


"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 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. 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."

My walking belt is off cener


Here are two solutions one is to get the belt centered on the treadmill and the other is to tighten the belt.

There should be two bolts in the rear of the treadmill, one on each side. These bolts adjust the rear roller of the treadmill. The walking belt will always go to the side that is looser. To get the belt back on track, (if you can start the treadmill so the belt is running) tighten the bolt on the side that the belt has slipped to. Tighten the bolt a little bit at a time. If you tighten the bolt too much, then the belt will go to the other side.

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.
