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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help. Much appreciated! "
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

PROBLEM: The walking belt is off-center or slips when walked on SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, Start unit @ 1.0 mph using the hex key, turn the left idler roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn to move belt to the right. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. If the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the left idler roller bolt counterclockwise or clock wise 1/2 of a turn depends on the tension that will be on the belt take your time and walk on it to feel the belt underneath you Repeat until the walking belt is centered.

Tips for a great answer:
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."
