Dear Sir:
The most likely cause of the problem is a worn treadmill belt and deck.
Most of the time its caused from NOT LUBRICANTING between the treadmill belt and deck.
This causes friction and the surfaces wear putting greater stress on the electronics. The treadmill is shutting down to protect the electronics.

Remember the treadmill is complex electronic system. sincerely.

God bless you.

SOURCE: My Cybex 520T is comming up with Error 9 on the Screen

Hi, Error code 9 on your treadmill means the brushes on the motor need replacing. This is an automatic indication that is set for 100 miles of use to prevent damage to the motor. Replace both sets of brushes and this should Fixya!

How to remove error 2 on a cybex trotter treadmill


Hi There,

This error leads to excessive current according to this .pdf.....
http://gymstore.info/manuals/upload/Cybex/cybex_error_codes.pdf
This mentions checking the motor, and certainly could be generated from the lower control board. I recall these controllers as quite large with maybe 4 to 8 large storage capacitors on them, which do fail over the years, and could cause this. Does the tread run at all? Error right away or move the belt then error? You can contact jatinah@rocketmail.com for more help if needed. Good Luck.

Cybex 520t error 6


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH
Error 6 is a motor over voltage error. Motor voltage exceeded 200 VDC for 200 milliseconds. This can be caused by a worn deck and belt due to a lack of routine maintenance. AKA adding wax between your deck an belt. You might be able to wax your machine and make the error go away. More than likely a new deck and belt will be needed. Using the link below and your model and serial number, you can find the needed items. In worse case scenario, you may also need a new motor control board.

Error 3 is an indication that the speed sensor signal has been lost. Check the speed sensor gapping on the machine you were initially having the issue on. If the speed sensor worked on another machine, I would think adjusting it when you reinstall the sensor, should fix your issue. A lot of times, gapping or a build up of lint, dirt or other debris can cause the speed sensor error to occur.

If you have not already, I would strongly suggest waxing between the deck and belt. Lack of lubrication will cause a build up of friction causing major heat to go to the lower electronics and drive motor. This can cause an abnormally high amp draw as well.

Hesitation with the belt rotation. Less pronounced at faster speeds.


This is usually caused by a loose belt and can be tightened by the adjustment bolts located on the back of the machine on either side of back roller thru the holes in the shrouds
