SOURCE: Saturn Belt Tensioner...

You probably have a bad tensioner, you cannot tighten a bad tensioner because the bearrings inside have gone bad so your belt will just keep coming off. I had the same problem, don't wait to fix this because your car can over heat, you can lose power steering without proper belt tension. Pay the few dollars now(and I do mean few) and avoid problems later.

SOURCE: Belt slipping on treadmill

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. 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. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

SOURCE: How do adjust tension on treadmill belt

If the walking belt slips when walked on. 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. Carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

SOURCE: Treadmill belt adjustment

There are two bolts on the back of the treadmill. Turn the right side clockwise to make the belt go left, turn the left side clockwise to make it go right. Never tighten more than 1/2 turn at a time, and do this while machine runs at 2-3 mph. Belt should be just tight enough to not slip. If your belt is really tight and it still slips you have other problems.

How do I know if I need a new roller in the back?


Your problem may be as simple as a loose walking belt. It could also be that the belt guides on the underside of the deck is too wide. Ir could also be that your rear roller collapsed (there should be noise in this case) or your rear roller screw is broken or not holding tension for some reason. Try adjusting the belt again. Consider that the belt will move to the side of least resistance so if you tighten the left side the belt will move right and vise versa. Good luck.

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. AV

Track sliping


Adjust walking belt tension at the front of the unit using the provided hex wrench on the exposed adjustment bolts located on each side of each front roller. Be sure to adjust both bolts on each roller the same amount as to not disrupt belt alignment. Tighten (turn clockwise) each adjustment bolt in full turn increments. After each adjustment, restart unit and check to see if belt slippage has been eliminated. Repeat if necessary.If slipping feel persists after several adjustments, stop and see if it maybe the drive belt. Remove left rear plastic cover to expose “v” belt drive line and motor. Tighten nut on the motor tension bolt located on front side of motor in 1/2 turn increments until drive belt slippage is eliminated - DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. Replace cover when finished.

The treadmill is loose. How can this be fixed?


If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud, then find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability.
If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described above, the drive belt must be tensioned by hand. While one person applied increased tension to the drive belt, the other person should tighten the motor set bolt Tighten the bolt and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat steps above and retest.
If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. Follow this procedure:
First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment 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. Rear Roller Adjustment Bolts


If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley and front roller must be replaced.
Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud. Loosen the rear roller and remove the two adjustment bolts. Some models have a spring loaded tensioner on the right hand side so be careful when removing these bolts. After the bolts have been removed, remove the rear roller end cap(s). The rear roller should now simply slide out of the walking belt.
Remove the motor hood. Using a black permanent marker, make a mark on the front roller adjustment bolt on the motor compartment side at exactly where it fits flush with the roller so you will know where to retighten it later. The adjustment bolt is on the right hand side of the front roller. Then remove the bolt with a 7/16” wrench. then remove front roller and replace with new reverse procedure mentioned above

Everything seems to work fine except a small slip in the track about every 30 seconds or so. Is there something that needs to be tightened?


The walking belt may be too loose. If you have made recent adjustments, lubricated, or had repairs, a belt can slip if not tightened. The belt can slip if you have too much friction or if the belt has been recently lubricated. If lube does not help your problem and you have exhausted all other possibilities, the walking belt is most likely worn out and must be replaced.
To adjust the belt: Less Belt Tension: turn both adjustment bolts on back of treadmill in a counter-clockwise direction. More Belt Tension: Turn both adjustment bolts equally in a clockwise direction. Center Adjustment (moves belt center to the left): Turn left-side adjustment bolt counter-clockwise. Center Adjustment (moves belt center to the right): Turn the left-side adjustment bolt clockwise.
An over tightened walking belt can raise the amp draw of your treadmill, contribute to seam separation on the walking belt, or both, so do not over tighten the walking belt.
You should be able to lift the belt in the center on the side by approximately 2” to 3”, if you cannot lift it by 2” to 3”, the belt is too tight.

How do i tighten my belt ..it goes from one side to the other


First check that the treadmill is level. Then adjust levelers if possible. Most treadmills will have a bolt at the rear of the tail roller one each side to adjust belt tracking. If it is tracking to the left tighten the left , for each adjustment on one side make equal and opposite adjustment on the other side to avoid over tightening the belt. 1/4 turn at a time

Whilst jogging hands free the treadmill belt sticks why would this happen


you need to lubricate the belt every 6 months or so. to do this lift up the belt and squirt some lubricant onto the belt board(not the rollers), do this on the left and right hand side.
you may also need to tighten the belt. this is normally done with an allen key, look at the end of the treadmill as if you were to walk onto it, and there should be a plastic cover on each side. look in here and you should see an allen key type bolt. turn each bolt one full turn. this will tighten the belt and stop it sticking.

Title: Treadmill Belt Problem


determine which side is off centered

If the tread is migrating from the left you need to adjust the tension adjustment on the right and side of the roller and make it tighter

Most adjustments are made by turning a set screw that moves the idler roller ( the roller that is at the end of the tread mill which is where you first get on)

TO ADJUST:

1 TURN THE POWER OFF AND UNPLUG AT WALL OUTLET

2 Locate the adjustment screw( remember you will adjust the side opposite the migration to tighten the roller)

3 manually force the treadmill belt over toward the proper path( I do this by taking my hand and sliding my fingers under the belt and lift the belt as I hand roll it

4 Turn the adjustment screw counter clockwise one revolution

5 plug in then turn on and see if it stays in place

6 Keep repeating the process ( steps 1,2,3,and 4 )
