Treadmill: Walking belt slipping

If the walking belt is too loose, it can lose grip on the front roller. Unplug the treadmill and remove the key before adjusting the belt. Tighten the walking belt using the adjustment screws at the back of the foot rails. To tighten the belt, use the Allen wrench supplied with the treadmill. Turn both screws clockwise 1/4 of a turn to tighten the walking belt. When correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each edge of the walking belt 2-3 inches off the walking platform.
