replacing a treadmill belt | Belt Centering

The treadmill uses tapered rollers to keep the running belt centered, but if the running belt drifts to either side and touches the side rails it will need to be adjusted.
Before making any adjustments, start the treadmill and set the speed to 4KM/H. If adjusting the belt tension screws on the back of the treadmill does not resolve the problem, you may need to adjust the tension on the front roller. This adjustment is available on the right side of the front roller only and will require that you remove the motor hood.  

Belt Drifts to the Right
If the running belt drifts too far to the right side, use the 6 mm Allen Wrench to turn the right tension bolt clockwise 1/2 turn at a time until the belt is properly centered.

Belt Drifts to the Left
If the running belt drifts too far to the left, use the 6 mm Allen Wrench to turn the left tension bolt Clockwise 1/2 turn at a time until the belt is properly centered.
