Question about Life Fitness 9500HR Treadmill

1 Answer

Replacement console I am looking to buy a replacement second hand console for a Life Fitness 9500 HR classic Treadmill. The machine is unusable as it keeps switching its self off before you can set a program. When you press start the console goes back to the default pre use setting and will not allow you to put in your weight or select a program.

Unplug unit then remove the upper console, their are 4 allen bolts holding it udder the console their is a panel held by 4 phillips head screws also remove them . Look inside the compartment and their should be two connections, disconnect them. Now pull console off its tower. Lay it upside down on a thick towel remove all phillip head screws you'll notice where the emergency stop button is connected. I have found that this connection 7 out of 10 times is causing the problem. Buy cutting the lead connector stripping the wires and soldering back on the male connection will resolve the problem. If not their is a emergency stop kit may be purchased and replace. The only other thing that may cause the problem is the function key pad itself. Try the first solution if your not good in soldiering go to a computer shop , t v shop they should be able to do this very quickly for while your at let the check the switch itself.

    Hi John, I have a new problem with the Life Fitness Lifestride 9500 HR and I wonder if you are still available to help as your previous advice was so good. The incline function is not working. When you attempt to use the incline function you can hear the motor working and there is a clicking sound but the deck does not lift. How do I get access to the lift motor / lift mechanism and what could be wrong with it when I do? Regards Graham

Unplug the treadmill. Locate the console key and place the safety or reset key into the treadmill console. Replace any parts that need replacing, or move on to the next step.

  • 2 Locate the reset switch on the underside of the treadmill console. Usually the button is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill.
  • 3 Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.
  • 4 Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill. The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place. Your treadmill is reset.

    My Life Fitness treadmill needs to have the motor control board replaced. A new one is costly, where would I get a used one? We are in Ontario Canada.

    if it is a classical model 9500/9500HR/9100/9100HR can take the card to a qualified technician mail, you must open the controller and change the following components: D4015L (2) 2N6507 (2) TIP110 (1) and in the latter case there to change the IRGBC40S.
    if you treadmill is the Next Generation you should buy new and can find on
