I have a reebok RT 100 & the plastic part that holds the roller etc in place has broken. Where can I get a replacement. The writing on this part says ENEGEX cushioning. Please help.


Hi Helen, ...if you find the part hard to come by, you may be able to use longer bolts that extend past the end of the plastic cap, and use oversized washers as an alternative.

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 had this issue as well and parkerguy's transfer roller cleaning suggestion solved it! One point to mention though if you have the CM1312nfi MFP is that the transfer roller is attached to a cage on the back door of the printer. To remove the transfer roller, you do NOT need to remove the cage. Simply open the back door and locate the white plastic cap attached to the end of the transfer roller. You'll need to slightly pry up the white tab that extends down from that white cap in order to turn the cap clockwise to remove it. Once you've removed the white cap, follow the same process to remove the black cap from the other end. Once you have both the white and black caps off, simply slide the transfer roller toward the black cap end, ensuring to feed the pin through the hole so the pin at the white cap end comes out. Now the transfer roller is free and in-hand, ready for cleaning. Note that the transfer roller pins are shaped/sized differently to ensure the proper end is inserted into the proper hole, so you should note which end belongs on which side. To reinstall, simply reverse the process, sliding the appropriate transfer roller pin through the hole on the black cap end, then insert the other roller pin through the hole on the white cap end and reattach the caps, ensuring the tab on the cap is reseated properly. Close the back door and you should be in business!

My Weslo Cadence 840 treadmill mat keeps trying to run off to the left


Check that the plastic end cap has not broken first. If it is OK, adjustment should be simple.
Start the machine running. With the allen key provided (3/16) simply tighten (clockwise) the left hand rear roller adjustment screw about 1/4 turn and observe the belt. If it is way off, you might need to turn 1/2. Let the belt do a couple revolutions before adjusting more. A very small adjustment id usually needed to straighten the belt. If it is way off, there may be a more serious problem..

Belt on treadmill is moving towards the right and bunching up


you need to adjust the travel of belt. to do this you need a allen wrench that came with it. if you have it run treadmill at slow speed,go to the rear right at the right end cap there is a hole, use the allen wrench and unscrew slowly while watching the belt until returns to the middle. if it slips when walking go back to rear and adjust by screwing in one turn on each side until belt wont slip.

Our Nordictrack Track Exp100S has problems. The belt rubs on the left hand side (my left as I'm walking) at the back of the treadmill. What should I do?


Inspect the rear plastic end cap. It is the plastic part at the back of the machine. The adjustment screws can be found there. These end caps disintegrate after time and break. You will see the discoloured plastic where the damage has occurred. If this is the case, the end cap must be replaced and belt readjusted.

I need to replace the walking belt on a ProForm PFTL40070.


Installing An Icon Fitness Treadmill Belt You can save yourself a great deal of time by following these instructions as opposed to those of the manufacturer. Please contact us if you need any further help. UNPLUG THE TREADMILL BEFORE DOING ANY REPAIR!
Step #1- Remove the plastic railing on the right hand side of the deck. Most railings are stapled down so using a flat head screwdriver or another prying device is the easiest way to do it. The plastic is refastened using screws provided with the belt in a later step. If you cannot see the staples, you may need to remove the cosmetic center insert cover first by simply sliding it to the back of the treadmill. This rail is on the opposite side of the front roller pulley and motor. Some of the models aren’t stapled down and with these, you simply remove the rear end cap and slide the rail off the back of the treadmill.
Step #2- Loosen the rear roller and remove the two adjustment bolts. Some models have a spring loaded tensioner on the right hand side so be careful when removing these bolts. After the bolts have been removed, remove the rear roller end cap(s). The rear roller should now simply slide out of the walking belt.
Step #3- Remove the motor hood. Using a black permanent marker, make a mark on the front roller adjustment bolt on the motor compartment side at exactly where it fits flush with the roller so you will know where to retighten it later. The adjustment bolt is on the right hand side of the front roller. Then remove the bolt with a 7/16” wrench. Step #4- Remove the deck screws which should now be exposed since the plastic cover is off. In this step, also remove the staples with a pair of pliers. Be sure to remove all deck and staple debris before continuing.
Step #5- This step is easiest if you have another person to help but it is possible with one person. Lift up the side of the deck that has been loosened and making sure that the front roller is angled toward the deck, remove the old belt by simply pulling it to the side. A few models had a side hand rail that attaches to the side of the treadmill and if you have one of these, the hand rail must be removed first.
Step #6- Install the new belt just like you removed the old belt. Before proceeding, make sure that the belt is in the center of the two metal belt guides that protrude from the bottom of the deck. The guides should be angled where the sides of the belt are turned slightly upward. Sometimes these can get bent during installation so make sure they are contacting the edges of the belt or the belt will not stay centered properly. Step #7- Install the front roller adjustment bolt where you just start it. Do not return it to its original position yet.
Step #8- Install the deck screws.
Step #9- Slide the rear roller back into position and insert the end caps and rear roller bolts. Most models have a small ground wire on one of the rear roller bolts. Make sure to just slide this over the bolt before it is inserted in the roller. The ground wire dissipates static electricity that is built up on the walking belt to help the roller bearings last longer and reduce static discharge on the electronics.
Step #10- Adjust the front roller bolt to its original position.
Step #11- Tighten the rear roller bolts to where the tension on both sides feels even and you can lift the walking belt 2-3” in the center of the belt from the deck surface.
Step #12- Replace the right side railing with the screws provided using a screwdriver.
Step #13- Start the treadmill and align the belt according to the instructions in the owner’s manual or on our web site troubleshooting page under “Belt Centering Tensioning Instructions.”
Step #14- Once the belt is aligned, test the belt for slippage. If the belt slips at all, tighten the rear roller adjustment bolts equally on both sides ½ turn until the slippage is gone. Do not over tighten the belt where it has less than 2” of lift from the deck surface.
Step #15- Replace the motor hood and make sure no odd noise is apparent and that the belt is tracking and tensioned properly.

The treadmill is loose. How can this be fixed?


If the problem is in the drive belt, either the drive belt will stop when stalled or the front roller will stop when stalled. Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud, then find the motor mounts. Many motors in Icon treadmills have a main pivot joint in which a bolt runs the full length of the motor mount. This bolt will require loosening to provide maximum adjustability.
If your treadmill is not equipped with a bolt as described above, the drive belt must be tensioned by hand. While one person applied increased tension to the drive belt, the other person should tighten the motor set bolt Tighten the bolt and test. If the problem is not corrected, repeat steps above and retest.
If the motor, drive belt, and front roller continue to turn when the walking belt is stalled, the problem is with the walking belt slipping on the front roller. Follow this procedure:
First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened. Rear Roller Adjustment Bolts


If the drive belt continues to turn but the front roller stalls, you may have a broken front roller pulley and front roller must be replaced.
Follow this procedure: First remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. remove motor shroud. Loosen the rear roller and remove the two adjustment bolts. Some models have a spring loaded tensioner on the right hand side so be careful when removing these bolts. After the bolts have been removed, remove the rear roller end cap(s). The rear roller should now simply slide out of the walking belt.
Remove the motor hood. Using a black permanent marker, make a mark on the front roller adjustment bolt on the motor compartment side at exactly where it fits flush with the roller so you will know where to retighten it later. The adjustment bolt is on the right hand side of the front roller. Then remove the bolt with a 7/16” wrench. then remove front roller and replace with new reverse procedure mentioned above
