Life fitness 97Te - 95Te - 97Ti - 95Ti - 93T – How to adjust the treadmill belt – How to access diagnostic mode

DIAGNOSTIC ENTRY
Diagnostics is entered by three methods:
1. Hold down the PAUSE Key until the SERVICE MENU appears, and press the STOP Button.
2. Hold down the PAUSE Key until the SERVICE MENU appears, and press CLEAR Key twice
3. Hold down the PAUSE Key when power is applied.
The unit will take approx. 3 to 4 seconds to enter Diagnostics.
How To Tension Belt
1. Locate the belt tensioning bolt on each side of the rear roller. The tensioning bolts are accessible through the holes provided in the rear roller guards.
2. Return the tensioning bolts to their approximate original position using the count of the number of rotations required for removing them.
NOTE: If this rotational count is unavailable, handtighten tensioning bolts plus an additional two turns before continuing tensioning process.
3. Enter SPEED MANUAL and run unit for at 5.0 mph (8.0 km/h) for five minutes.
NOTE: Do not walk or run on the treadmill during this time. Ensure that the belt is centered.
4. Set the striding belt speed to 2 mph (3.2 km/h). Begin walking on the treadmill. Tightly grasp the handrails and make a deliberate attempt to slow the striding belt. If belt slippage is detected, proceed to step 5, otherwise proceed to step 6.
5. Stop belt and increase belt tension on each side by 1/4-turn. Return to step 3.
NOTE: Make tension adjustments in 1/4 turn increments.
6. With the belt running, note its tracking on the deck surface. If the belt is offset to the right, turn the right tensioning bolt 1/8 turn counterclockwise and the left tensioning bolt clockwise an equal amount. If the belt is offset to the left, turn the left tensioning bolt 1/8 turn clockwise and the right tensioning bolt counter-clockwise the same amount.
Repeat adjustment as necessary. Allow the unit to operate for several minutes after each adjustment to see that the belt remains centered on the deck surface.
NOTE: Make tracking adjustments in 1/8 turn increments.
How To Adjust the Belt Tracking
MPORTANT - It is critical that the treadmill be level prior to any tracking adjustments. An unstable or leaning unit can cause the striding belt to drift to one side.
1. Turn unit power ON and use the SPEED AUTOMATIC mode to set the belt speed to 2.5 mph.
2. Check the belt tracking at 2.5 mph speed. If the belt is offset to the right, turn the right tensioning bolt clockwise and the left tensioning bolt counterclockwise the same amount to bring the belt back to a center position. If the belt is offset to the left, turn the left tensioning bolt clockwise and the right tension bolt counterclockwise the same amount to bring the belt back to a center position.
NOTE: Adjust tensioning bolts in 1/8 turn increments.
3. If the striding belt has moved to the right, turn the right tension bolt 1/8 turn clockwise and the left tension bolt 1/8 turn counterclockwise to start moving the striding belt back to the center of the rear roller.
4. If the striding belt has moved to the left, turn the left tension bolt 1/8 turn clockwise and the right tension bolt 1/8 turn counterclockwise to start moving the striding belt back to the center of the rear roller.
5. Repeat this adjustment until the striding belt appears centered. Allow the unit to operate for several minutes to see that the belt remains in the centered position.
NOTE: During the adjustment do not exceed one full turn of the adjusting screws in either direction to avoid significant changes in belt tension.
