Question about Bowflex Treadmill Series 7

2 Answers

Freespirit Treadmill I have a Freespirit Treadmill, bought it second hand, so it did not come with a manual. However, it was working fine when I purchased it, but when I brought it home, the console works, but the treadmill won't start at all. Checked it inside and out, all the wires are fine. Any suggestions????? Please help me!! Thank you! :)

Did you try it before you bought it and it was working. when you move the unit and pluged it into the wall outlet was it on? if yes then you may have damaged the lower board. If you can not get that part then the treadmill has died. Is it a Bowflex or a Free spirit.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

I have a Freespirit treadmill model 909. It turns on and the track runs, but clicks off after just a few seconds. It was working fine until then. Now it does it every time I turn it on. What could be the...

it sounds like the speed sensor is not close enough to the magnet, or the speed sensor is bad. it is located inside the motor area, next to the pulley on the front roller. well depending on what treadmill you have. it can be shaped like a pencil but shorter. make sure it is about a centimeter away from the magnet that ison the flywheel. once you have moved it turn on the treadmill and try it, if it doesnt work then move the belt with your foot and every time the magnet goes past the sensor you should see a light flicker on the control board if not then the sensor needs to be replaced.
