wow you need to provide more info you're very vague with your description. I think you're talking about the serpentine belt tensioner? I'm not sure of the symptoms other than a belt coming off the pulleys(has happened to me on other vehicles) but yes the tensioners do wear out in time....I would suggest seeing how tight the belt is, if you can push on the belt and move it more than an inch the tensioner may be bad. Again, not really sure how to diagnose the tensioner, but typically from what I remember when I would push on the belts of my other vehicles they would only move about .5" from the force of my arm.
