Adjusting the belt on a NordicTrack treadmill is an important step in ensuring that your treadmill will provide you with a safe and effective workout. It is important to note that the belt should be adjusted when the treadmill is turned off.
First, you must locate the tension adjustment knob on the side of the treadmill. The knob will usually be located near the rear roller. When you turn the knob, it will cause the belt to become tighter or looser.
Next, you must place your foot onto the belt and slowly start to turn the knob. As you turn the knob, the belt should start to move. If the belt is too tight, you should turn the knob clockwise until the belt moves freely. If the belt is too loose, you should turn the knob counterclockwise until the belt feels snug.
Once the belt is adjusted to the proper tightness, you must test it out by walking on it. If the belt slips or the motor works too hard, you may need to readjust the tension.
Finally, you must inspect the belt for any signs of wear or damage. If the belt is worn or frayed, it should be replaced. You should also inspect the motor and the roller for signs of wear. If the motor or the roller are worn, they should be replaced as well.
Adjusting the belt on your NordicTrack treadmill is an important part of maintaining the safety and effectiveness of your treadmill. Make sure to adjust the belt periodically and inspect the belt, motor, and roller for signs of wear or damage.
