In order of most likely cause. 1) Worn motor belt needs to be changed. Rear roller bolts need to be tightened as the walking belt has too much slack(2-3 inches lift on the edge of the belt in the middle on each side) 3) the nylon pulley on the front roller is slipping and a new roller is needed.

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

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.

The belt is loose


there are bolts at the rear of the treadmill on each side they are usually allen keyed . tighten each of them evenly so the belt runs true do this a little at a time and test belt by stepping hard on belt . if the belt stays and the drive rollers still moves tighten some more , if it pulls your foot along then you have good tension . note not to over tighten as this will cause damage to machine good luck

Belt is off center


Tighten the rear adjusting bolts until the walk belt it tight enough to lift about 1.5 inches at the sides of the walk belt. After you do this, Turn the treadmill on to speed setting 2, and be ready to tighten the side that the belt is closest to.( if the belt is against one side, start with that side) Tighten only 1/2 a turn at a time and watch the belt start to move. It wont take much once it starts to move. Only tighten each side ( if necessary) dont loosen the bolts. Once the belt is in the middle, leave it alone. The belt is now adjusted. You may see it travel to one side, breifly, but it will return on its own.


Hope this helps

Tread is sliding and rubbing agianst right side of track.


Make sure treadmill is running when you adjust belt. The treadmill belt tracks as the belt goes around. I usually put machine on 2-2.5 if belt is not rubbing instantly. If belt is already against plastic, turn adj. counterclockwise on the opposite side about one full turn. You can usually move belt with your foot to see if it aligns any with turning on the treadmill. Once belt is not rubbing, turn treadmill on and continue alighing the belt.

How do I adjust tension on walking belt


A good way to test your walk belt to see if it is slipping is to stand on side rails with treadmill running about 4mph and while holding onto handrails keep one foot on the side rail and put your one foot on the center of the belt in a slight stomping motion,if the belt is loose you will feel it slip. To adjust a loose belt tighten each screw at back of treadmill 1/2 tun each until the slippage goes away. Be sure not to over tighten belt as this will cause excessive wear.If the belt has shifted to one side and you need to center it, go to the side it has shifted to and turn the screw clockwise 1/4 turn at a time until it centers.
