Tensioning the walking belt, running belt slipping

Over time the walking belt may begin to slip. This can happen if the belt is too loose. You can tighten the belt using an allen wrench.
When tightening the belt turn both the left and right idler bolts the same distance and direction with the belt stopped. Start by turning the idler bolts in one half turn increments followed by one quarter turns for finer adjustments.
After each adjustment, test on the treadmill. Repeat these steps until the slipping no longer occurs. DON’T overtighten the belt, if the belt keeps slipping you may need to replace it or look for other problems on the treadmill.
