Jet 1442 Speed question

>Just got the lathe in October, and when I now turn the lever to 2000 or 3000 rpm, I can stop the lathe with my hand, the lower speeds down seem to work, and the belt tight, but when I get to the 2 upper ranges, belt seems sloppy and I can grab the handwheel and stop the spindle from turning, the belt continues on, I don't see any adjustment on the belt to tension anything?..anyone else have these problems?...Dennis
