Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. You are correct the rails are stapled to the waling board. The best way I have found to remove the foot rail is with a flat tipped screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver under the rail right by a staple. Then twist the screwdriver. The staple might come out or pull through the rail. If it pulls through it is fine. To remove the staples use a pair of diagonal cutters. Grip the staple and pry it up. When you are ready to install the rails put the screws through the hole made by the staples.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for your question.

Replacing the belt on your treadmill is fairly difficult and time consuming. In addition, there are no really detailed instructions for replacing it since a professional would typically do that type of service. We do not have a treadmill service manual that shows how to replace the walking belt.

The basic instructions are listed below to help you.

  1. Unplug the treadmill from the power source.
  2. Remove the motor hood on the front of the treadmill.
  3. Remove the right foot rail.
  4. Remove the rear roller adjusting bolts.
  5. Remove the front roller adjusting bolt. Make sure to count the number of turns it takes to remove the bolt. Then when you reinstall the bolt, you can get it in the same place.
  6. Remove the front roller.
  7. Remove the screws from the right side of the walking board. Then lift the walking board and slide the walking belt off the board.
  8. Reverse the instructions to reassemble the treadmill.
  9. Before installing the motor hood carefully check the operation. The drive belt might need to be adjusted.
I have added the instructions for adjusting the walking belt below. Again, this is a fairly involved repair, so if you have any concerns or reservations you may want to consult a professional.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below if you need further assistance. Here is a link to order any parts you need. Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
