Setting the proper tension on the belts is quite important. Double check they are tense enough.
Below an example of what happens when the iBoardbot draws and the belts are a little bit loose:

The Y axis adjustment is a tightrope. Too tight and the belt rubs against the carriage. A youtube video of assembly and adjustment would be really useful
