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

Why does my Simplicity Citation keep blowing the PTO Clutch 20A Fuse?


If a fuse keeps blowing it means there is an intermittent short in the wiring or a faulty PTO clutch. Either way you need to fix it, not just keep replacing the fuse. Take it to an authorised repairer and tell them what is happening.

Replace deck on Precor 9.45i


Replacing a Treadmill Running Belt and Deck Following is a basic guideline of removing and replacing the running belt and deck on a treadmill. Due to different brands and designs of treadmills, the following should only be used as a guideline. If any of the information is not exact to the treadmill being serviced, refer to the service manual or call Sportsmith for further help. Tools Needed: Phillips Screwdriver, Set of Allen Wrenches, Set of Box End or Open Face Wrenches (Tools needed may vary depending on treadmill. )
  1. Switch the Power off on the unit.
  2. Next, unplug the unit from the wall.
  3. Remove the finger guard retaining screws and carefully remove the finger guards from the deck at each end of the rear roller.
  4. Loosen each rear roller bolt by 10 full turns. Then count the remaining turns necessary to remove the rear roller bolts. Remember to write down the number of turns needed to remove the bolts in each side for future reference.
  5. Carefully remove the rear roller from the unit. Clean any wax or debris buildup from the roller and place it aside.
  6. Raise the shroud and secure it with a bungee cord.
  7. Work the drive belt off the motor pulley by hand turning the flywheel while pushing the belt aside.
  8. Now remove the front roller retaining bolts.
  9. Carefully remove the front roller from the unit. Clean off any wax or debris buildup and set it aside.
  10. Loosen and remove the deck mounting hardware.
  11. Move the deck toward the left side of the frame to free the deck from the right side. The deck will move down once the frame has been cleared.
  12. Remove the deck and belt by raising the right side edge of the deck over the frame rail and sliding it to the right to remove.
  13. When installing a new belt or deck it is important to note that a new belt and deck surface should always be installed together. Failure to adhere to this guideline will severely shorten the life of the newly installed parts. Some decks can be used on both sides. However, be sure that each side is only used once. Be sure to install the belt in the proper direction on the unit.
  14. Install the belt and deck by first putting the belt on the deck, and then installing them from the right side as a unit.
  15. Be sure the deck is lined up with the frame and push the deck to the left side.
  16. Now carefully lower the right side of the deck to insert it into the frame rail and then push the deck to the right as far as possible.
  17. Re-install deck mounting hardware. (Check with mfr. for proper torque during install process.)
  18. Carefully place the front roller on the deck under the belt and push it forward into place, while placing the drive belt on the inside of the drive pulley.
  19. Replace the front roller bolts. (Check with mfr. for proper torque during install process.)
  20. Now spin the roller by hand while pushing the drive belt onto the pulley. Be sure to spin the roller several times to insure complete installation of the drive belt on the pulley.
  21. Install the rear roller into unit. Carefully start each bolt and turn one to two threads to ensure no cross-threading has occurred.
  22. Tighten each rear roller bolt the number of turns you kept earlier for reference.
  23. Now, Plug in and power on the unit.
  24. Carefully remove the bungee cord from the shroud and lower it back into place.
  25. Start the unit at a very slow speed and check for proper belt alignment. Remember to start at the slowest speed possible and be ready to stop the unit quickly if needed.
  26. If the belt is moving to right side of unit tighten the right roller bolt, If the belt is moving to the left side of the unit tighten the left roller bolt until the belt is tracking properly.
  27. Caution: make very small adjustments such as 1/4 turns and then watch the belt for several moments before making another adjustment.
  28. Once the belt is tracking properly walk on the unit at a slow speed and check for belt slippage on foot fall. If this is happening tighten each of the rear roller bolts equal turns until the slippage is no longer occurring. Caution: make very small adjustments such as ¼ turns and then watch the belt for several moments before making another adjustment.
  29. Now use the unit at a jogging speed to check for belt travel or slippage.
  30. If slippage still occurs make small equal adjustments (1/4 turns) to both sides of rear roller and re-test.
  31. Install the finger guards once you have enough clearance from the rear roller.
  32. Some manufacturers require wax or lube during the install process, please consult your owner's or service manual for further information regarding this.

Mower deck slows and stops when I turn my Simplicity riding mower to the left,


HI,

The simplicity has a a two point mounting system for the deck. It attaches to the front axle which has two runners that go to the front axle's rear support bracket.

Closely check the runners near where the pins that hold the mower deck. They are known for cracking and breakage. Secondly, closely check the decks metal center support bracket, it bolts to the center of the deck and supports the idler pulleys as well as the deck alignment and mounting. Those, too, are known to crack near the front just behind the front pulley.

Instructions for changing the walking belt on my Cadence DX15 treadmill


1. Unplug the treadmill and remove the motor hood.

2. Use a permanent marker like a Sharpie and mark the roller positions on the bolt on the front roller and bolts on the rear roller- not all front rollers have this adjustment bolt.

3. Loosen the walking belt at the rear of the treadmill.

4. Remove the front roller adjustment bolt.

5. Some higher end treadmills use straddle covers that have an undermount or slide mount. If you don't see staples or bolts on the top of the cover, do not pry them up. If you do have one stapled or screwed down, use a flat head screwdriver or similar instrument, pop the plastic deck cover on the right hand side up (if you are standing on the treadmill like you are using it, the deck cover on the right side). If you see screws, simply unscrew and remove the screws. Screws are included to reattach the cover near the end of installation.

6. Remove the deck boltsmost have 3 or 4 bolts.

7. Once the deck is loose on the right side, completely remove the screws from the rear roller. Be careful with the plastic endcaps. The endcaps and the roller need to be removed in this step.

8. One person should hold the deck up and hold the front roller in position near the pulley while a second person removes the old walking belt (some models that do not fold and a very few number that do have a side handrail on the right side that attaches at the base of the treadmill…if yours does, remove this handrail before removing the belt). If you are talented, you can do this with a single person.

9. With one person holding the deck up and holding the front roller in position near the pulley, the second person should reinstall the new walking belt. Once the belt is in place, raise the deck up again and look underneath to make sure the belt is in the center of the belt guides that stick down from the deck underside. When tensioned, the belt guides should make the outside edges of the walking belt turn toward the center of the belt.

10. Replace the rear endcaps and rear roller and start the rear roller bolts. DO NOT TIGHTEN THE REAR ROLLER BOLTS IN THIS STEP.

11. Refasten the deck bolts. Go ahead and tighten the deck bolts fully in this step.

12. Refasten the front roller bolt and return it to the marked position (it was marked in step 2).

13. Replace if you have undermount straddle covers or fasten the plastic side deck cover with the enclosed screws if yours were screwed or stapled down. Removing the staples in the deck with a pair of pliers before reattaching the deck cover is not required but will make it easier to reattach.

14. Retighten the walking belt to the marked positions on the rear roller bolts.

15. Check the walking belt for proper tension by lifting it 2” to 3” in the center of the belt.

16. Test the treadmill for slippage and make adjustments (if needed) for lateral centering or tracking.

17. Once the belt tests good, replace the motor hood.
