Why does treadmill belt go crooked or wear out?

Usually, it is an adjustment problem. After installation (and if used regularly) the belt should be adjusted (see instructions on the blog).

If when adjusting the rear roller you are unable to keep the belt in the centre, check if the front roller is fully aligned.

In some cases, despite the belt being aligned both at the front and behind you notice that it moves through use. In this case, you should check first if the treadmill is well aligned on the floor. If it is, the problem is normally due to the user not walking in the centre or pushing more with one foot, tending to move the tape from one side or the other.

Poor maintenance and lubrication or worn tape tend to accentuate movements during the workout.
