My treadmill belt is slipping.?

My treadmill belt is slipping. I have a Proform 530, have adjusted the belt per manual, used the recommended belt lubricant and have removed the endcap. The pulley and belt are not worn, however, I was told that the pulley may need to be adjusted if all of the above were performed and did not fix the problem. How do I adjust the pulley to tighten the belt when everything else thus far has failed? Thanks for your help...I've been without my treadmill for three weeks now and desperately want it fixed.

You have 3 places that can slip on a treadmill.
1. The walking Belt. When they slip they make a shush
Kind of sound.
2. Drive belt. They normally squeak when they slip.
3. The plastic pulley can loose it's grip on the roller and spin instead of move the belt. It usually makes a zing kind of sound.
Remove the motor hood. Turn on the treadmill and walk.
when it slips look down at the front roller were the drive belt is.
If the walking belt is slipping, The walking belt will stop, but the motor, drive belt, and front roller will continue to move.
If the drive belt is loose, The walking belt and front roller
will stop, but the motor will still turn.
If the plastic pulley on the front roller looses it's grip, the motor, plastic pulley and drive belt will move but the walking belt and front roller will stop.
To tighten the drive belt you would need to move the motor.
If you can send me a picture of the motor and bolts I could tell you how to adj. it.
