Question and Answers

Q:

I was just online with someone in regards to installing a new walking belt model number 831297761

A:

Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you with the walking belt replacement.

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.

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 and 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 walking board. Then lift the walking board and slide the walking belt off the board.
  8. Reverse the instructions to reassemble the treadmill.
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.
