Question about Life Fitness Exercise & Fitness
When I increase incline the speed increases by itself
If this is the same problem you had prior to replacing the MCB and speed sensor. I would check the drive motor, unplug unit then remove motor shroud then unplug the connectors leading to the motor itself. If you have wire leads and a 18v drill battery connect the leads into motor then attach the other end to you battery and if the motor will rotate ( approx. 1mph) , if it does the check speed sensor to see if the correct spacing between sensor and front roller ( check if the magnet has not fallen out of front roller pulley this also can cause you problems) hope this help!!

Error 26 is what's known as a Motor Pulse Width Incorrect. It basically monitors the sensor signal and verifies that it's appropriate for the requested speed. If your machine uses an infrared sensor, check the line of sight between the optical eye and the sensor target, an array of black and silver wedges arranged like a pie. Ensure that it is 3/16" apart and that it's pointed at the larger point of the wedge section. Use an electronic cleaning compressed air cleaner to blow out any particles that could block it. Have a close look at the target, if it's torn or badly scratched, it will need to be replaced.
If the machine uses a hall effect sensor (magnetic) ensure the distance between the flywheel tooth and sensor is 3/16".
You can sometimes get this error if the speed sensor is faulty, but usually it will happen without you even touching the controls at that point because the lower board isn't receiving any signals from the sensor, or you will get a different error code.
