See page 22 in the manual above. The spring on the idler tensions the belt, there is no adjustment. See if the spring is in place and if the belt is on all the pulleys. You may want to replace the belt if it has never been changed.
I read the question and found the motion drive belt. Did you look at the manual, page # *****?
I addressed the drive belt! Did you LOOK at the manual page 22 ????
Did you find your problem?
