When was the last time you lubbed the deck? It is mportant to regularly lub the deck to reduce friction and it should be done before any attempt to tension the belt... Over tightening the belt just transfers the load to the motor and may cause the motor to burn out...
Loosen the belt a little, lube the deck using an approved treadmill lub and test... The belt should only be tightened to the point to stop hesitating when walking on it..
