      Video Demonstration of a Belt and Deck Replacement on a LifeFitness 95T Treadmill

      • This video demonstrates the steps necessary when performing a belt and deck replacement on a LifeFitness 95T treadmill
      • Tools Necessary:
        • 9/16" Socket Wrench or 9/16" Hand Wrench
        • Long Flathead Screwdriver
        • Phillips Screwdriver
        • 4MM Allen Wrench or Allen Socket
        • 8MM Allen Wrench
        • Plastic Putty Knife
        • Shop Vac or Vacuum
      • Begin by turning off power at the treadmill and unplugging the unit from the wall
      • Remove the upright tube caps from the inside of the uprights
      • Remove the Phillips screw and tilt the cap in at the top
      • Remove the motor shroud by first taking out all four screws in the shroud
      • Then remove the screws at the top of the front panel and loosen the lower screws
        • This will leave enough play to remove the shroud as shown in the video
      • Now with the Phillips screwdriver, remove the finger guards at the end of the treadmill from each side of the rear roller
      • You will need to slightly twist the finger guards to get them out from under the belt
      • Using the 8MM Allen Wrench, loosen the bolts on each side of the rear roller by 10 full turns
        • At this point, you can completely remove the rear roller bolts while keeping count of the number of turns at each side of the roller
      • Do not include the 10 full turns from the previous step, only count the turns for this step and make note of the number of turns for future referenc
      • Carefully remove the rear roller from the treadmill and set it aside
      • At the motor compartment, use the long flathead screwdriver to lift the tensioner arm and remove the drive belt from the drive motor pulley
        • CAUTION – Pinch Point
      • Using the 9/16" socket wrench or hand wrench, remove the bolt from the front roller mount
      • Carefully remove the front roller from the frame and set the roller aside
      • Use the 4mm Allen wrench or socket to remove the 4 deck bolts from the deck
      • Once the 4 deck bolts are removed, you can pull the deck and belt from the frame
      • Be careful to not let the deck drop too far down into the frame during removal
      • Damage to the anti-static tinsel can occur if deck drops too low into the frame (as seen in the video)
      • It is recommended to thoroughly clean the treadmill before completing your belt and deck replacement
        • While the belt, deck and rollers are out of the frame is a great time for cleaning
        • Dirt, debris or other contamination can cause noise, early damage or premature wear on new parts
      • Use a plastic putty knife to scrape away any debris build up from the front and rear rollers
      • Vacuum most of the painted surfaces then wipe clean with a Sportsmith equipment wipe
      • Once you've completed the cleaning of your treadmill, it should now be ready for reassembly
      • It is necessary to install a new deck surface with the new treadmill belt
      • Your unit may have an unused side of the deck that can be flipped into use or the deck may need replaced
      • Before installing the new deck surface, inspect the tinnerman clips
        • The tinnerman clips are what the deck bolts thread into
      • Simplify the installation process by placing the new treadmill belt over the new deck surface
        • Ensuring the belt is installed in the proper direction
          • If marked, use the arrows on the inside of the belt
      • Now place the belt and deck into the treadmill as a unit
      • Install the front two deck bolts (closest to the front roller) about half way
      • Then use a long tool to line up the deck holes by the rear roller while placing your weight onto the deck to allow the bolts to start
        • Install these bolts in about half way
      • Now tighten all four deck bolts
      • Carefully insert the front roller under the treadmill belt and into place
        • Making sure to install the drive belt over the pulley on the front roller
      • Install the pulley end of the roller into the frame and align the other end with its bolt hole
      • Install the bolt and using the 9/16" socket or hand wrench, tighten it
      • Again, use the long flathead screwdriver to lift the tensioner arm and reinstall the drive belt onto the drive motor pulley
        • Practice CAUTION as this is a Pinch Point
      • Install the rear roller under the belt and while pulling back on the roller install the roller bolts on each side
      • Remember to keep count of the number of turns on the rear roller bolts
        • Reinstall the roller bolts using the same number of turns you noted from earlier
      • The belt may still be too lose, but that is ok as it can be fixed in a moment
      • Plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the power on
      • Start the unit at a very slow speed and observe the tracking of the belt

      LifeFitness 95T Treadmill Drive Belt Replacement Video

      • This video shows the steps necessary for one to take when replacing the drive belt on a LifeFitness 95T treadmill
      • Tools Necessary:
        • Phillips Screwdriver
        • 8MM Allen Wrench
        • 91/6" Socket Wrench or Hand Wrench
        • Long Flathead Screwdriver
      • Begin by turning off power at the treadmill and unplugging the unit from the wall
      • Remove the upright tube caps from the inside of the uprights
        • Remove the Phillips screw and tilt the cap in at the top
      • Remove the motor shroud by first taking out all four screws in the shroud
      • Then remove the screws at the top of the front panel and loosen the lower screws
        • This will leave enough play to remove the shroud as shown in the video
      • Now with the Phillips screwdriver, remove the finger guards at the end of the treadmill from each side of the rear roller
        • You will need to slightly twist the finger guards to get them out from under the belt
      • Using the 8MM Allen Wrench, loosen the bolts on each side of the rear roller by 10 full turns
        • At this point, you can completely remove the rear roller bolts while keeping count of the number of turns at each side of the roller
          • Do not include the 10 full turns from the previous step, only count the turns for this step and make note of the number of turns for future reference
      • Carefully remove the rear roller from the treadmill and set it aside
      • At the motor compartment, use the long flathead screwdriver to lift the tensioner arm and remove the drive belt from the drive motor pulley
        • CAUTION – Pinch Point
      • Using the 9/16" socket wrench or hand wrench, remove the bolt from the front roller mount
      • Remove the old drive belt from the unit
      • Install the new drive belt over the front roller pulley
      • If removed, insert the pulley end of the front roller into its place in the frame and align the other end with its mounting hole
      • Install the bolt and using the 9/16" socket or hand wrench, tighten it
      • Again, use the long flathead screwdriver to lift the tensioner arm and reinstall the drive belt onto the drive motor pulley
        • Practice CAUTION as this is a Pinch Point
      • Install the rear roller under the belt and while pulling back on the roller install the roller bolts on each side
      • Remember to keep count of the number of turns on the rear roller bolts
        • Reinstall the roller bolts using the same number of turns you noted from earlier
      • The belt may still be too lose, but that is ok as it can be fixed in a moment
      • Plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the power on
      • Start the unit at a very slow speed and observe the tracking of the belt
        • If the belt is not turning with the front roller, make small equal turns of the rear roller bolts until the belt begins to move
      • If the belt moves quickly to either side of the frame, quickly press the STOP key to keep the belt from being damaged
      • If the belt is moving to the left side of the unit, you can tighten the bolt on the left side of the rear roller
      • If the belt moves to the right side, you can tighten the bolt on the right side of the rear roller
