SOURCE: The console does not work. E-2 shows up on the console.

We had this problem after assembly as well, it turned out to be a bent pin inside the connector to the flywheel housing (where the wires connect inside the lower part of the main mast). It was so bent that it never actually made contact with the connector.

We straightened the pin, carefully reconnected the wires, and everything worked just fine.

This says to us that the "E-2" error message means the console is missing at least one connection from the system. This could be caused by a bent pin, a torn/cut/frayed wire, etc -- anything that might make it lose signal.

So check the lower connection for bent pins, check the upper connection for bent pins, and check all along the wires for any kind of damage.

Hope this helps!

I receivd bh elliptical ocean program with no power cord.The sticker on trainer is torn,it has 6v but thats it. Googled & found nothing on Power cords or power sup needed to turn on thanx again,kirsti

It could be that the BH elliptical you have does not need an external power supply, but it does need a new set of batteries in the console.

For example:
The X8 BH elliptical is self powered, when a user strides at a speed about 20 RPM's; electricity is generated to allow the console to function properly. Exercising recharges the batteries in the console.
If you want to take a look at the X8's manual as a reference to see where the batteries are located in the console you can check it out here

We hope this helps in any way :) if you ever need a little help trying to figure things out you can chat with us at or by phone at 888-713-2880

Remove the bolts or screws securing the console to the upright assembly. Lift the console and confirm that the cable connections are secure. Remove the cover from the console's battery bay and install a fresh set of batteries. Replace the battery cover.


Detach the ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Remove the left and right disc shields and side shields. Inspect the interior of the base unit and locate the flywheel.


Inspect the flywheel as it turns. Locate the magnet installed on the flywheel. Turn the flywheel until the magnet passes in front of the nearby reed switch. Loosen the screw securing the switch in place. Rotate the switch to reduce the gap between it and the magnet. Tighten the screw.


Replace the left and right disc shields and side shields. Reattach the ends of the pedals to the crank axles.

No led display is their a way to replace the battery or does it runs on batteries

There is a 9 volt battery in the back of the console. This small battery could be your problem. I am attaching a link to our Website for parts, as well as a link to the diagram for your machine.
