1997 Ford Explorer - Loose belt

My serpentine belt broke off so I got a new one put on, now it is not staying on. I’m just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or knows what is wrong.

A worn bushing in the belt auto tensioner can cause the tensioner pulley to be misaligned and the belt will “walk” off of the pulleys.

Thank you. I will look into it
