The resistance belt on my nordictrack 1300 woulnt tighten. How do I fix it? Thanks for you assistance.
When using the NordicTrack in manualmode, you can adjust its resistance by twisting a resistance knob, locatedeither in the corner of the console or on the upright support. If the treadmillbelt slips from side to side, you need to adjust its tension via bolts locatedin the back of the machine frame.
First find the treadmill adjustmentbolts in the rear end of the treadmill frame, to either side of the belt. Now putin an Allen wrench into each bolt, one at a time, and turn each bolt aquarter-turn clockwise. Slip one hand among the belt and the treadmill deck. Ifthis doesn't pull the treadmill belt taut, it's still too loose. Tighten thebolts another quarter-turn. Continue testing the belt tension, then adjustingthe bolts as needed, until the belt is just loose enough for you to slip yourhand between it and the deck with no extra slack. Step onto the treadmill andwalk. The belt shouldn't bind or slip side to side. If it does, dismount andre-adjust the bolts until the belt tracks correctly.
