TX4.9, track belts slips to one side?

I have a Sportcraft TX4.9, model # 04041 treadmill.
The track belt keeps slipping to one side, and starts rubbing on the guides underneath. If I keep using it will get shredded eventually. I no longer have a manual for it. Can someone please give me an advice on how to adjust it so it stays straight?

the only I can of is that one time I slipped while it was running & after that hasn't ran since
my manual has also disappeared is it possible to order one?

if it stops moving when you step on it, that means it is too loose, you need to tighten it more, the front rollers are not given the correct pressure to run when you place a load (your weight) on it.

there are alan wrench sockets in back of treadmill use those to tighten and even out band... leave treadmill on at slow rpm and tighten each side till band is even... might even want to push band to center with your foot and run at high speed to check for shifts

According to the instruction manual for the TX4.9, this is how to rectify the belt slipping:

At the rear of the treadmill there are 2 adjustment bolt heads. These are used to move the belt to the left or right as follows:
1. No one should be standing on the belt while making these adjustments.
2. Start the treadmill belt moving according to the instructions.
3. Set the speed at approx. 5.0 mph. The faster the belt is running, the faster the adjustment will be seen. CAUTION: If you adjust the belt too far, you may not be able to stop the right or left movement of the belt before it reaches the side of the deck and other parts of the treadmill. This may cause damage to your belt or treadmill.
4. Insert the short end of the Allen wrench provided into the bolt head. If the belt is too far to the right (when looking at the treadmill from the rear), use the right side bolt. If the belt is too far left, use the left side bolt.
5. With the belt running, turn the Allen wrench 1/2 turn clockwise. Observe the belt. It should start moving away from the side. Turning the belt head clockwise (either bolt head) will cause the walking belt to move away from the bolt you are turning.
6. You may repeat the 1/2 turn 2 more times for a total of three 1/2 turns. Allow some time, at least 30 seconds for the belt to move.
7. Never make more than three 1/2 turns of the same bolt head. If, after three 1/2 turns the belt remains out of position, use the other side for adjustment as follows: If you have been using the right side bolt, move to the left side. Turn the bolt counterclockwise 1/2 turn. Turning the bolt head counterclockwise (either bolt head) will cause the walking belt to move toward the bolt you are turning. Allow some time, at least 30 seconds for the belt to move.

If your belt appears to slip as you are walking on it, you should tighten the belt somewhat to eliminate the slip. Follow the instructions above EXCEPT make an equal number of adjustment turns on EACH bolt. It may take a number of complete revolutions to tighten your belt. Turning the bolt heads clockwise will tighten the belt. Make one complete revolution adjustment to each bolt head and then walk on the treadmill to test for slipping. If it still slips, repeat the operation. After making 2 complete turns of each bolt and slipping still occurs, make 1/2 turns in each bolt and test after each side is adjusted. Adjusting the walking belt too tight can cause damage to your treadmill, so FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
