Question about Proform Crosswalk 395 Treadmill
Ordered new walking belt, put on made adjustments with hex wrench but still slips from side to side after numerous adjustments. What am I doing wrong. New belt is starting to frey on one side.
You have not properly aligned and / or adjusted the tension. If it is SLIDING then you do not have enough Rear Tension. Once you get the right amount of REAR TENSION, then you have to adjust the left right (balance the belt). Your belt should go straight, right now you have it too far to the FRAYED SIDE. Turn the Machine on, have your Hex Wrench in the Bolt and turn it slowly CW and as the belt come back to Center, watch the adjustment. If it continues to go past, then loosen it a little until you have the right balance. Remember REAR TENSION FIRST... THEN BALANCE for Alignment

more than likely the drive belt needs to be tightened. This is done by removing the lower cover. Should be 2 screws in the rear and 2 screws on the bottom to remove it. Then there is an adjustable bracket on the motor. Hope this helps, Tim

please look under the bottom of the treadmill and be sure that your alignment brackets are not benmt/missing. (put the machine in the storage position and look about 2/3 way down the side of the belt) you should see a metal bracket on each side pressing in on the belt. They should be pressing in about 1 1/2 -2 inches to help track the belt.

One possibility is the pulley in the front roller.The shaft that goes into the roller slips making the belt seem as if its slipping. To check it it requires tmarking both surfaces with paint and then see if the mark seperates.

At the back of the treadmill, there are 2 adjustment screws, 1 on each side. They are used to move each end of the rear roller either forwards or backwards. I typically teach people to use the left hand adjustment screw because the direction you turn the screw is the direction the treadbelt will move. Turn the machine on and run it at the lowest speed, usually .5mph and while it's running, make an slight adjustment. If it's running while you do it, you will be able to watch the progress of the belt and it's easier to fine tune it this way. Using an allen key (you should have been supplied one with the machine) turn the adjustment bolt a 1/4 turn in the direction you want the belt to go (only from the left). Wait a few minutes and watch it carefully, you do not want it to run up against the side rails of the machine, this will shred the sides of the belt. You really shouldn't need to turn it more than a 1/4-1/2 turn to make an adjustment. Watch the belt migrate back towards the center and when it gets close, turn the screw slightly back a bit to stop the progress, or it will stop on it's own as it reaches the higher angle of the roller. Patience is key here, don't try to do it one morning on your way out to work. Give yourself 15-20min to focus on it and remember that as long as you don't use large adjustment increments and pay attention to where the belt is headed, you'll be fine.

If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the hex key, 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 edge of the walking belt 2 to 3 in. (5 to 7 cm) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking
belt centered. Then, plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is
