Have to check the speed sensor. Either the speed sensor is faulty or the can be dust or speed sensor alignment.

SOURCE: client run on treadmill then

hi,
There are two possibilities for this problem
1. Check the speed sensor on near the motor pulley. Remove the sensor and clean it and re-fix it. then make a try. if problem remains then
2. The motor speed controller is faulty. There is an IGBT for controlling the motor speed. If it get shorted the motor will run it its high speed.

Be sure before opening the treadmill remove the power.
ok

HI our Bowflex series 3 treadmill is giving us a continued Err L5 code when trying to use our machine. We bought it used so do NOT have ant trouble shooting instructions. Any advice?


Hi There, L5 error should refer to the "LS" error which looks up to a speed problem. When you start the machine up, it boots fine and then when you press start or go is says err ls ? If the walking belt doesn't move at all when you try to start it, listen for a "Click" on that lower board when start is pressed..... If the walking belt moves for a second and then stops and the console says err ls, then you may have a speed sensor problem. These control boards are repaired by Jatinah Electronics who can be found with a google search. Good Luck!

I get an error message E1 on my Athlon model Simplicity treadmill. Belt stops. Any ideas on what this means?


Step 1:

ERR 1 - Motor Movement

ERR1 indicates a speed issue. In this case, the motor speed as reported from the optic sensor differs

from the speed setting.

Analysis: Optic sensor signal issue -- Either the optic sensor signal is not right, or it is read incorrectly, or

the signal is not reaching the display.

Clean the s.speed , test for open or faulty-see the diagram for adjust. tight the connector very well.

God bless you

Treadmill only works for 15 secs


1) If the the belt is moving during that time then stop I would suspect that speed sensor maybe defective. Replace the sensor
2) Now if their is no belt movement then either Motor Control board or Drive Motor is defective. Do Motor Test
I would check the drive motor first to eliminate an expensive component, unplug unit then remove motor shroud then unplug the connectors leading to the motor itself. If you have wire leads and a 18v drill battery2_bing.gif connect the leads into motor then attach the other end to you battery and if the motor will rotate ( approx. 1mph) if that is accomplished then the only other component to be replaced would be the Motor Control Board.

Manual Treadmills vs. Motorized Treadmills


Treadmills come in two basic varieties, just like lawnmowers: manual and motorized. But, unlike a lawnmower, you will generally get a better workout from a motorized treadmill. Manual Treadmills - Getting Going On a manual treadmill, the action of your feet against the deck moves the belt. Pros * You provide all of the motive power and exercise your lower body. Cons * It can be difficult to get the belt moving intially. That straining against the belt can stress your joints. * You may have to raise the incline of the treadmill significantly to make it easy enough to get the belt moving. * Once the belt is moving, however, you would have to stop and get off to change the incline, so you are stuck with one incline level during each workout. Motorized Treadmill Advantages * The belt is moved by the motor, you don't have to strain to start it. * On many treadmills, you can adjust the speed and incline while you are still walking or running. On others, you may have to get off and adjust the incline manually, but you just have to turn on the treadmill to start the belt again. Manual Treadmills - Speed With a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. If you slow, it slows. If you stop, it stops. Motorized Treadmill Speed and Workouts The speed is adjustable and many motorized treadmills have workout programs that adjust the speed to give you a varied workout. This pushes you to go faster. The constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill motivates you to keep up. Costs Manual treadmills are relatively inexpensive, in the $100-200 US range. Motorized treadmills for home use cost from $750-$5000, and generally the more you pay, the better you get. Most motorized treadmills under $1000 have underpowered motors and are less sturdy and have fewer options for adjusting the incline, programmed workouts, etc.
