The belt will ride on the edge when you don't have enough tension; if you have too much tension it will rub against the head.

You might have set the tension level correctly in the begging but I don't think you locked the tension into the holder slot in the black plat when you applied tension. See how the tension tab fits into the square slot in the black plate.
