A worn treadmill belt can slip or bind and cause an injury. When the belt becomes worn, it is time to replace it. Removing the walking belt on a Weslo Cadence treadmill uses the same process as is used for any folding treadmill. It is helpful to have an assistant for this process.

Step 1

Unplug your treadmill from the wall. Remove the motor hood by unscrewing the hood screws using a screwdriver or drill.

Step 2

Mark the location of your rollers on the roller bolts using a Sharpie marker. This will allow you to tension the belt with more ease.

Step 3

Loosen the walking belt at the rear of the treadmill by using a hex key to turn both the left and right sides of the rear roller counterclockwise. Remove the front roller adjustment bolt using a hex key in a counterclockwise direction.

Step 4

Remove the deck bolts using a ratchet set or a crescent wrench. Turn these bolts in a counterclockwise direction to remove them.

Step 5

Remove the screws from the rear roller using a screwdriver. Remove the plastic end caps from the rear roller. Remove the rear roller from the treadmill deck by sliding it out the side.

Step 6

Remove the belt by sliding it off the front roller.
