(Continued)

How To...REMOVE AND REPLACE THE STRIDING BELT (Continued )

Step 9

Loosen and remove the two BOLTS and WASHERS securing the RIGHT HANDRAIL to the FRAME to allow passage of the STRIDING BELT between the RIGHT HANDRAIL and the FRAME.

NOTE: TAPE THE BOTTOM OF THE STATIONARY LEG BEFORE PROCEEDING TO REMOVE THE STRIDING

BELT. THIS WILL HELP PREVENT SCRATCHING THE BELT AS IT IS BEING INSTALLED.

Step 10

Maneuver the STRIDING BELT over the STATIONARY LEG and off both ROLLERS. If the STRIDING BELT was removed for the purpose of service to another part of the Treadmill, set the BELT aside in a safe place to avoid the possibility of inadvertently scratching or puncturing it.

Step 11

If the STRIDING BELT was removed for service to the machine and will be reinstalled

or

if a worn STRIDING BELT was removed to be replaced by a new STRIDING BELT it must be determined in which direction the BELT will be positioned to assure that it rotates in the proper direction for which it was designed. Follow this three step crosschecking approach to insure the STRIDING BELT is being installed properly:

1.

2.

3.

Check that the arrows stamped on the underside of the STRIDING BELT point in the direction of BELT rotation.

If the STRIDING BELT bears the '

Lifestride

' or

‘Life Fitness’

logo, it should be installed so it is readable to aperson using the Treadmill.

Find the seam on the

underside

of the STRIDING BELT. Place your thumb on the top of the

BELT and your forefinger on the bottom of the BELT at the seam. You will notice, on the

top face

of the BELT, a shorter and longer raised edge on either side of the seam. The shorter raised edge should always face towards the front of the Treadmill.

Step 12

Reinstall the previous STRIDING BELT or the new BELT by reversing Steps 9 through 5 (

in that exact order

) to partially reassemble Treadmill.

Step 13

With the machine now upright, center the STRIDING BELT over the FRONT and REAR ROLLERS. Check to make sure the TRACKING SENSOR SPRING is not captured on top of the STRIDING BELT. Reinstall the REAR FRAME

CAP.

Step 14

Re-tension the STRIDING BELT with the TENSIONING BOLT (turning it clockwise) to 1/16" (0.4cm) less of the original location of the NYLON BLOCK noted in Step 3.

Step 15

The Treadmill is now ready to be plugged in and turned on,

but not ready for use.

The STRIDING BELT must have the wax system reset before use. Refer to the CPU chart located in the “Hot To...REMOVE AND REPLACE

THE CONTROL (CPU) BOARD” section in this manual to reset the wax system.

NOTE: THE WAX DELAY MUST BE TURNED “ON”

Step 15

The STRIDING BELT must be properly adjusted and tensioned at this point. Proceed to "How To...ADJUST AND

TENSION THE STRIDING BELT" and follow the instructions in the section which describes the particular servicing you are doing to the unit.

A. Tensioning the Existing Striding Belt

B. Re-tensioning the Existing Striding Belt after Removal

C. Replacing the Striding Belt with a New Striding Belt

WATER PRIOR TO INSTALLATION.

Step 1

Turn the power OFF at the ON/OFF switch and by unplugging the machine at the electrical outlet.

NOTE: THE TENSION OF THE STRIDING BELT MUST BE SLACKENED TO ALLOW

ACCESS TO THE DECK.

Step 2

Use a hex key wrench to loosen and remove the three SCREWS from the right END CAP and remove the CAP.

Step 3

At the location where the END CAP was removed is the BELT TENSIONING BOLT. The BOLT threads into a NYLON BLOCK which you can see through the slot in the FRAME above it.

Measure and note the distance from the NYLON BLOCK to the end of the slot or mark the decal

(if present) to locate the current position of the NYLON BLOCK where it meets the threaded portion of the TENSIONING BOLT. Use a socket and ratchet wrench to turn the BELT

TENSIONING BOLT counter-clockwise until the STRIDING BELT is slackened.

Step 4

Once the STRIDING BELT has been sufficiently slackened to the right, use hex key wrenches to remove the four corner MOUNTING SCREWS and the four center MOUNTING SCREWS from the DECK.

Life Fitness Model 9500 Series HR and Telemetry Equipped Treadmills

How To...ADJUST AND TENSION THE STRIDING BELT

Tools Required:

Hex key wrench set, socket and ratchet wrench set

NOTE: IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT THE TREADMILL LEVELING LEGS BE CORRECTLY

ADJUSTED PRIOR TO ANY TRACKING ADJUSTMENTS. SEE THE LEVELING INSTRUCTIONS IN THE

OPERATION MANUAL. AN UNBALANCED UNIT MAY CAUSE STRIDING BELT MISALIGNMENT.

This instruction is to be followed when:

A. Tensioning the Existing Striding Belt

B. Re-tensioning the Existing Striding Belt after Removal

C. Replacing the Striding Belt with a New Striding Belt

CAUTION: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE TENSIONING BOLTS WHILE MAKING BELT ADJUSTMENTS.

OVERTIGHTENING OF BOLTS MAY OVER STRETCH AND DAMAGE STRIDING BELT AS WELL AS PLACE

AN UNNECESSARY LOAD ON THE ROLLER BEARINGS.

A. Tensioning the Existing Striding Belt

Step 1

Remove the user right FRONT FRAME CAP to access the belt tensioning bolt. Measure the distance from the

NYLON BLOCK to the end of the slot or mark the decal at the BLOCKS' location.

Step 2

Enter the Manual Program and run unit for five minutes, the first two minutes at 5.0 m.p.h. (8 k.p.h.).

Step 3

Reduce the belt speed to 2.0 m.p.h. (3.2 k.p.h.). Tightly grasp the HANDRAILS and attempt to stall the STRIDING

BELT. If STRIDING BELT slips, continue to Step 4. If STRIDING BELT does not slip, stop and replace FRAME

CAPS.

Step 4

Stop the treadmill, turn the BELT TENSIONING BOLT 1/4 turn clockwise to tension, not to exceed 1 full turn.

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until belt no longer slips. Repeat adjustments until STRIDING BELT appears centered allowing machine to continue running for several minutes to observe if tracking remains stabilized.

CAUTION: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLT. OVERTIGHTENING OF BOLT MAY OVER

STRETCH AND DAMAGE STRIDING BELT.(Continued)

34

B. Re-tensioning the existing Striding Belt after removal

Step 1

(Right FRONT FRAME CAP already removed). Measure the distance from the NYLON BLOCK to the end of slot or mark the decal at the BLOCKS' location.

Step 2

Slacken the STRIDING BELT by turning the TENSIONING BOLT on the user right side of the unit counter clockwise.

Step 3

Remove the DECK, RIGHT HANDRAIL and REAR ROLLER GUARD as necessary to service the machine. Set the

STRIDING BELT aside while servicing.

Step 4

Once service has been completed, reinstall the STRIDING BELT, DECK, RIGHT HANDRAIL and REAR ROLLER

GUARD. Center the BELT over both the FRONT and REAR ROLLERS for proper aligning and tensioning.

Step 5

Re-tension the STRIDING BELT with the TENSIONING BOLT (turning it clockwise) to 1/16" (0.4 cm) less of the original mark made in Step 1.

Step 6

Check to make sure the TRACKING SENSOR SPRING is not captured on top of the STRIDING BELT.

Step 7

Go to Section A, Steps 2 through 4 of the tensioning procedure.

CAUTION: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLT. OVERTIGHTENING OF BOLT MAY OVER

STRETCH AND DAMAGE STRIDING BELT.

How To...ADJUST AND TENSION THE STRIDING BELT (Continued )

C. Replacing the Striding Belt with a New Striding Belt

Step 1

Remove the user RIGHT FRONT and RIGHT REAR FRAME CAPS. Measure the distance from the WHITE NYLON

BLOCK to the end of slot or mark the decal at the BLOCKS' location.

Step 2

Relieving contact between the worn BELT and FRONT ROLLER will make BELT removal and replacement easier.

Use the '

Service Mode

' in the DISPLAY CONSOLE to relieve the contact. Perform the following procedure to achieve this:

Enter the Service Mode by:

1. Pressing the

START

key once.

2. Pressing the

CLEAR

key twice.

3. Pressing

9-1-9

on the numeric keypad.

(

MANUAL, 9-1-9

if connected to Lifecenter)

4. Pressing the

START

key.

5. Pressing the

RANDOM

key

6. Pressing the

MANUAL

key.

This will activate the

Manual Tracking Program

and the L.E.D. will read “

TM

” for TRACKING MANUALLY.

CAUTION: YOU ARE IN THE SERVICE MODE PROGRAM. ONLY PERFORM THE STEPS

MENTIONED TO AVOID CHANGING OTHER PROGRAMS.

Step 3

Press the

INCLINE DOWN

key to activate the TRACKING MOTOR, drawing the left side of the FRONT ROLLER inward. Hold the key down for four minutes as indicated in the TIME window.

Step 4

Slacken the STRIDING BELT by turning the TENSIONING BOLT on user right side of unit counter clockwise.

Step 5

Remove the RIGHT HANDRAIL and REAR ROLLER GUARD. The STRIDING BELT can now be removed and replaced.

Step 6

When installing the new STRIDING BELT, it must be determined in which direction the BELT will be positioned to assure that it rotates in the proper direction for which it was designed. Follow this three step cross-checking approach to insure the STRIDING BELT is being installed properly:

1. Check that the arrows stamped on the underside of the STRIDING BELT point in the direction of

BELT rotation.

2. If the STRIDING BELT bears the Life Fitness logo, it should be installed so it is readable to a person using the Treadmill.

3. Find the seam on the underside of the STRIDING BELT. Place your thumb on the top of the BELT and your forefinger on the bottom of the BELT at the seam. You will notice, on the top face of the

BELT, a shorter and longer raised edge on either side of the seam. The shorter raised edge should always face towards the front of the Treadmill.

Step 7

Maneuver the new STRIDING BELT over the STATIONARY LEG and onto the ROLLERS. Position the new BELT as close to the center of both the FRONT and REAR ROLLER as possible. The unit will automatically track and center the STRIDING BELT later.

Step 8

Check to make sure the TRACKING SENSOR SPRING is not captured on top of the STRIDING BELT.

Step 9

Reinstall the RIGHT HANDRAIL and REAR ROLLER GUARD. The unit must be set upright before continuing.

Step 10

Re-tension the STRIDING BELT with the TENSIONING BOLT (turning it clockwise) to 1/8" (0.8 cm) less of the original mark made in Section C, Step 1.

Step 11

The Lifestride treadmill is now ready to be plugged in and turned on, but not ready for use. The STRIDING BELT must be properly centered using the '

Service Mode

' for BELT TRACKING.

Enter the Service Mode by:

1. Pressing the

START

key once.

2. Pressing the

CLEAR

key twice.

3. Pressing

9-1-9

on the numeric keypad.

(

MANUAL, 9-1-9

if connected to Lifecenter)

4. Pressing the

START

key.

5. Pressing the

RANDOM

key

6. Pressing the

MANUAL

key.

This will activate the

Manual Tracking Program

and the L.E.D. will read “

TM

” for TRACKING MANUALLY.

CAUTION: YOU ARE IN THE SERVICE MODE PROGRAM. ONLY PERFORM THE STEPS

MENTIONED TO AVOID CHANGING OTHER PROGRAMS.

Step 12

Press the

INCLINE UP

key to activate the TRACKING MOTOR moving the left side of the FRONT ROLLER outward. Hold this key down for one minute as indicated in the time window.

Step 13

Enter a Manual Program and run unit for five minutes, the first two minutes at 2.0 m.p.h. (3.2 k.p.h.) and let

TRACKING MOTOR adjust and center STRIDING BELT.

Step 14

With the BELT SPEED at 2.0 m.p.h. (3.2 k.p.h.), tightly grasp the HANDRAILS and attempt to stall the STRIDING

BELT. If STRIDING BELT slips, continue to Step 15. If STRIDING BELT does not slip, stop and replace FRONT and REAR FRAME CAPS.

Step 15

Stop the treadmill, turn the BELT TENSIONING BOLT 1/4 turn clockwise to tension, not to exceed 1 full turn. Allow

TRACKING MOTOR time to adjust and center STRIDING BELT after each adjustment of BELT TENSIONING

BOLT before attempting to stall the STRIDING BELT. Repeat Steps 13 and 14 until STRIDING BELT no longer slips. Replace FRAME CAPS.

CAUTION: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLT. OVERTIGHTENING OF BOLT MAY OVER

STRETCH AND DAMAGE STRIDING BELT.
