Epic View 550 front rollar noise

Front roller has a shaft that fits through a larger hole in the treadmill frame. When I run on the treadmill this shaft bangs up and down inside this hole. I appears as if a bushing is missing to help stabilize the shaft and prevent it from doing this.

SOURCE: How do you put the treadmill down?

There is a knob on the support bar behind the treadbelt deck. Give the deck a little push up, then pull the knob out and lower it.

Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord. If the switch protrudes as shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset the circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then press the switch to the reset position.

How to troubleshoot a noisy treadmill

First verify if your are getting the noise with a user physically on the machine, without anyone on, or both.

Creaking or squeaking while running on the machine usually indicates an issue in your incline motor, deck frame, springs, and or pivot points.

A loud grumbling noise getting louder and louder while elevating speed, usually means you have a bad bearing.

Any knocking noise coming from a treadmill indicates bad bearings in your front roller, rear roller, or drive motor.

Isolate the bearings in the front and rear rollers from the drive motor bearings.

To test: Unplug the machine, remove the main shroud, remove drive belt from drive motor and front roller pulley.

After doing so, move the treadmill belt by itself by pushing it backward or forward with just your hands and listen for any noise, if you get any noise it is most likely coming from either the front or rear roller. To isolate the noise from the two rollers you can loosen the belt and turn each roller individually.

If no noise with the first test, go ahead and start the machine and run it at a low speed. You want to listen for noise, if you get knocking or grumbling while drive motor is running with no drive belt attached then the issue is in your drive motor.

A lot of times simple maintenance will save your treadmill from noise, you want to make sure and lubricate your treadmills pivot points. Incline motor bolt, shaft, deck screws, and or any pivot points on the bottom of your machine. Metal on metal pivot points are usually the culprit in most cases.

Pivot points are just areas of high friction where there may be a bolt, washer, and nut attached to the base of your frame or any hinges on your folding type treadmills. Metal on metal needs to be lubricated to minimize wear and tear of those areas.

Synthetic grease works best or any spray on lubrication works fine if you do not want to remove any bolts or hardware.

95T Treadmill Belt and Deck Replacement

Video Demonstration of a Belt and Deck Replacement on a Life Fitness 95 T 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
    • 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
  • Once the belt is tracking straight, move on to the next step
  • Re-install the finger guards over the rear roller with the Phillips screwdriver
  • With the unit stopped, step onto the treadmill and straddle the running belt with a foot placed on each side of the frame
  • Start the unit at a walking speed and begin to walk on the belt
    • If the belt stops on your foot fall or with your weight, make small adjustments such as 1/4 turns on each side of the rear roller until the belt slippage or hesitation is no longer felt
  • Continue this adjustment until no slippage or hesitation is felt at running speed
  • Now reinstall the motor shroud and upright tube caps
  • Log the repair into the Maintenance record of the treadmill display electronics
    • Press STOP then hold the PAUSE key until the display comes on and reads SERVICE MENU
    • Use the UP or DOWN arrow to scroll to MAINTENANCE and press ENTER
    • Display now reads MAINTENANCE MENU
    • Use the UP or DOWN arrow, scroll to REPLACING BELT/DECK and press ENTER
    • Display will read REPAIR LOGGED and will then return to the SERVICE MENU
    • You can press STOP key to exit the SERVICE MENU
  • This completes the belt and deck replacement on the LifeFitness 95T treadmill

I have nordictrack A2105 and although we "oiled" the belt and replaced motor belt, it still slips. What are we doing wrong?

remove the hood. Turn the treadmill on to speed of 4 or 5 and straddle the walk belt. While the treadmill is running (with good shoes on) step hard on the walkbelt while observing the motor belt and front roller belt pulley. Does just the belt or front roller stop? if so the belt is loose. If the belt does not stop check to see if the front roller stops and the front roller pulley keeps going. If so the front roller pulley is slipping on the roller. If the belt, pulley and front roller are all moving and the walkbelt is the only thing that stops when stepped on then the walk belt is loose. To repair a slipping front roller you have 2 options: 1) purchase a new roller assy or 2) loosen the motor belt and push it to off to the side of the front roller pulley (no needto remove). Realign the roller pulley to the motor pulley. You may have to tap it into alignment. On the inside section of the grooved part of the pulley drill an 1/8" hole thru the pulley and thru the roller housing. (If you drill to the outside portion of the pulley on the left hand side you will hit the roller bearing. Now take a larger drill bit like a 3/8" and lightly countersink the plastic pulley - try not to drill thru the pulley with the larger bit. Using a thin head sheetmetal screw, install the screw so the head is just below the ribbed surface of pulley. If you screw up your first attempt just rotate everything 90° and try again.

This is will be the speed sensor not responding.

Take the motor cover off.
Find the small belt coming off the motor and on to the roller.
Look on the side of the front roller for a magnet, you might just find a hole, if this is the case the magnet has fallen out and will be stuck on the inside frame somewhere.
Glue it back in and test machine.

Remove front roller

The only way I found to remove the front roller was to disconnect the right side hinge (watch you fingers, it's under lots of force). Then clamp a pair of vice grips on the roller axel between the roller and support. Then use a crowbar to pry the axel (between the vice grips and base support) from the support. Make sure you disconnect the bottom plastic on the right side to avoid breaking it. Reassemble the same way. You will need quite a bit of force to reconnect the hinge. I used a ratcheting tie down to align the holes (pull the right side deck and the right side base together). There must be an easier way but I have not found one yet since the roller supports are a continuously welded u-shapped frame.

The belt skips when walking or running

Take the motor hood off and set aside. Straddle the walk belt and set the speed to 3 or 4. Take one foot and step on the walkbelt hard. While doing this look at the pulley on the front roller. Does just the roller stop and the pulley keeps turning, does the roller and the pulley stop together or does just the walkbelt stop? If the walkbelt is the only thing to stop it is loose. If the pulley, roller and the walkbelt stop the motor belt is loose. If the pulley continues to turn and the roller and walkbelt stop your pulley is slipping on the front roller ( press fit). Two solutions: 1) replace the front roller or 2) pin the front roller to the pulley. Align the pulley roller to the motor pulley by tapping it into position. remove motor belt by loosing motor. Drill 1/8 hole through the pulley and roller. Take a larger drill bit and countersink the pulley hole so the head of a screw will be below the pulley grooves when installed. install the screw. If you mess it up -- turn the pulley and roller and try again. This is a permanent fix for this problem. You may have a little pulley wobble and that is OK.

The back roler is making a very loud vibrating

Best way to check the roller to see if the bearings have failed is using a long shafted flat tip screw driver and place it on the end on the adjusting bolt. Then put your ear on the handle and listen, if the sound has amplified then the roller is defective and needs replacing. If not then check the front roller the same way because sound travels thru the frame and the problem maybe originating their. Call Icon Fitness to order part their is 1-800-999-3756.

Squeaking when i run on nordic track 5100r

My treadmill (American Motion Fitness) squeaks when only when  it warms up. I spray CRC oil onto the front roller bolts which bolt it to the swivel housing and onto the bolts which bolt the swivel housing onto the main frame also onto the rubber bushings which allow the front roller to bounce every time my foot hits the deck. I seem to have to do this 1 per week but it is easy to get at and takes 2 minutes. cheers johnO
