Just got a used Weslo Cadence 825 treadmill this weekend.

Just got a used Weslo Cadence 825 treadmill this weekend. Used it for 22 minutes and the belt got tangled up. My husband loosened the belt and untangled it and retightened the belt. But it keeps doing the same thing over and over now. Thinking we need a new treadbelt cause maybe this one is just old and worn out which is causing it to crease and fold up on itself. Do you think we need a new belt or is this just not tightened correctly?
What has happened is the rear roller bolt has pulled through one of the endcaps(whichever side the belt is going to is the bad endcap). You will need to replace the endcap or get a longer bolt and washer to hold on the outside of the endcap. You can check he sells repair kits for endcaps that attaches a metal bracket to the exisitng endcap and distributes the pressure through the metal. These were a problem because the plastic is what is holding all the pressure. Depending on how badly folded the walkbelt is will determine if it needs replaced. You can purchase a belt from the same website. good luck with the repair.
