Adjusting Belt Tension
Adjust the belt tension whenever the belt slips or moves unsteadily during operation by following the steps below:
1. Start by loosening the two (2) adjustment bolts
2. With the walking belt loose, place two marks
35 inches (89 cm) apart on each side of the belt near the edge. The belt must be loose enough for you to move it from side-to-side on the front or rear roller
3. Turn the adjusting bolts clockwise by equal amounts until the marks are between 35-3/16 inches and 35-5/16 inches apart. Proper tension for the walking belt is between .5%–.6%. This should be about six full turns of each adjustment bolt from the point where the belt begins to stretch.
Important: Do not exceed 35-5/16 inches.
4. Test the belt by running on the belt at about four (4) mph. Hold the handrail lightly and resist the belt movement with your feet.
5. If you feel the belt slip on the front roller, increase the tension of each adjustment bolt by 1/2 turn and re-test. If you feel the belt slip again, check the tensioner adjustment.
Adjusting Belt Tracking
Perform this procedure whenever the belt moves to one side or the other. Stay off the belt when adjusting the tracking.
1. Start the treadmill at minimum speed and grade.
2. Increase speed to six (6) mph, and make the following adjustment:
2.1. If the belt moves to the right, turn the right adjustment bolt 1/4-turn clockwise.
2.2. If the belt moves to the left, turn the left adjustment bolt 1/4-turn clockwise.
3. After making an initial adjustment, run the treadmill for five (5) minutes and observe how the belt tracks. If the belt continues to move away from the center, adjust the appropriate side until properly centered.
Replacing the Walk Belt
Perform this procedure whenever the walk belt is still too loose after adjusting the tension or when the belt is worn or frayed.
1. Remove the Treadmill Hood
1.1 Turn the treadmill circuit breaker off, and unplug the power.
1.2 Remove the Front Trim, Right Lower Cover, Left Lower Cover, and Top Motor Covers.

2.5 Remove the screw from the Front Roller Retaining Bracket on the left and right side, then remove the brackets.
2.6 Remove the Bolt and Tensioner assembly from the frame.
2.7 Slide the Front Roller over to the left, then use the belt to lift and slide out the roller from the machine.
