Question about Precor C954i Commercial Treadmill
I have just purchased and assembled a free spirit treadmill - plugged it in and it starts and appears to be working - then 10 second it shuts down and shows L5 in the time display and shows "slow speed" in the main display. I just brought this home yesterday...help!
Yeah - the sensor is the problem... It is magnetic... You can find it next to the wheel on the belt - It is fairly small.... There is a metal disc in the wheell on the belt that is a magnet.. As it passes by the sensor - the sensor registers the magnet and can simply calculate speed based on the frequency of the passes... Sometimes the sensor slides too far back and ergo can`t register the magnet passing by - Then you get the L5 error...

This seems to be a speed sensor problem, maybe this evil alineadoo simply no longer works and must be changed. You should also check the wires that go to the card

I will try to help you, please use the steps with patience and carefully: You must need some basics tools; Included Dvom (Digital Voltemeter).
Instructions Things You'll Need for to Reset Code:
When the treadmill is not in use, press the "Stop," "ENTER" and "QUICK START" buttons in rapid succession. The "RESET" button can also be used, in place of the "Stop" button.
Press the "ENTER" button three times to access the treadmill's error log.
Press the up or down arrows to scroll through the error codes, if necessary for club or personal logging purposes.
