Make sure to take an image of the original board to copy the wire location/connections.
Boards often go bad from an array of issues, but verify the condition of the underside of the walking belt is not black and the deck is not worn. Lack of lubricant and too much friction on the belt system usually overloads the board with heat and damages the board.

Owners manual will outline the procedure in back of pamphlet.
Utilize the supplied hex key or source the correct hex for the rear roller. Access the tensioning bolts for the rear roller through the holes in the plastic covers at the rear of the machine.
