When you press Quickstart it says "Please Wait" and it stays like that for about 2 minutes then you can begin workout? Not sure how to fix.

I have seen this a couple of times. The incline motor probably has a gear problem. Remove hood and find the plug for the incline motor, disconnect and then reset treadmill. treadmill should work but will not incline until incline motor is repaired or replaced. Good luck.

Merit 725T. The treadmill has gone into a "10 degree" incline mode on its own, and will not respond to the control panel to reduce the incline.

I have noticed a few times that my f3 life fitness treadmill changes pace on me, and so does the incline. i can see it on the monitor, also it has started feeling like the belt is catching or something, or...

It might just need a simple adjustment of the running belt that can eliminate the slipping refer to you owner's manual for the procedure. It will be close to all treadmill adjustments.
Here is a generic procedure for adjusting the belt:
If the walking belt slips when walked on. Run the treadmill @ 3 to 4 mph, walk for a few minutes, Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. Then repeat adjusting procedure until walking belt is properly tightened.

I just bought a used life fitness 95ti and it seems to be very noisy when it inclines? is this normal and is there a way to call up how much use the machine has had? Thanks

If its growling then the incline motor is on its last leg. All incline motors have some degree of noise my only suggestion is if their is a Gym in area call them and see if they have Life Fitness treadmill don't worry if it is not the same model. The motor have not change much you should be able to gage noise level on a few of the units. They do not have a total mileage or hour usage if this unit came from a gym a loose figure of 20 to 25,000 miles or 3 to 5,000 hours give or take.

Because you are hearing the lift motor making a noise, it sounds like the gears in the motor are bad. The fix is to replace the lift motor.

Hi! i have a life fitness 9500HR treadmill and it says incline error on the screen! and the incline doesn't work?? can i fix it somehow?

Unplug the treadmill . Remove front cover. On the right hand side if you are facing the front - in the siderail is a white switch that tells the treadmill it is all the way down. Check that it is in place and clean.
If you plug the treadmill in.{Do not touch any thing in the motor compartment} When you press start it should go all the way down [home] to contact the switch. You can also see the lit motor turn at this time before the belt will move it must be all the way down.
