    mine runs and after 20-30 minutes it trips the circuit breaker and shuts off> I have noticed that the speed on the belts fluctuates a bit as well. I have removed all dust and have used silicon lubricant on the rollers and when I turn it on it smells like the motor is burning.

    I called Treadclimber and I think it's the motor, which is under warranty for 5 years, so give them a call!

Hi ddmyatt.. They sell what is call dry lube at sports store's. for spraying under the tread's and on the wheels that the tread run's on.. Lift the tread and spray as far under it as you can on both side's. She'll be lot's quieter then before and lots easier on the motor too..

Check the speed sensor and make sure it is no farther than a credit card away from the drive pully. Unplug unit Located...remove left and right rear covers and back cover. 3 screws in each and 4 screws in back. Follow 2 black wires up to drive belt pulley under back of left treadle. slide sensor in with cc between it and the pully. Recalibrate

What does a E2_C error code mean?


If the console doesn't receive a signal from the speed sensor, which is mounted on the back of the motor, the console stops sending power and displays an E2C error code.

You need someone to test voltage on the treadmill and determine if the power supply board, motor controller, or motor is bad.

You can have it repaired with "Sears Treadmill Repair" (even if you bought it somewhere else) calling them at 1-888-206-3131...

When I put my Bowflex tc 5000 at the highest speed it turns itself off in a minute. Does anyone else have this problem?


This sounds like something that had been happening to a treadmill at our gym.. The problem there was that the moving parts were getting too hot and thus, the machine swithes off to not start burning up/breaking both instances may cause injury to the user.. u need to have it checked by a professional

Where can I get this machine serviced? The gate feels uneven. The left pad almost seems to be hitting ground before the right pad completes its stride.

Napa 8300 silicone is recommended. Apply under belts from front to back one fluid spray and also in bearing areas. Squeaking can also be caused by the center of the treadles rubbing to hard. If this is the case they need to be adjusted.

Bowflex Treadclimber rubs against housing.


Adjustment is needed. Remove rear covers and using a 9/16 wrench lossen the four bolts that secure treadle assembly to base. Place a 3/4 inch piece of plywood or a 3/8 inch socket extension in between the treadles in the front area. with that in place center them about an 1/8 in closer to the right upright as when you tighten the four bolt up the drive belt will place additional pressure and they should center perfect. tighten bolts...tight. remove wedge from between treadles and recalibrate unit. replace covers and enjoy. Use turtle wax on area rubbed to prevent rust.

Sensor wires detatched during initial assembly of Bowflex TC1000


You will need to make contact with bowflex if you broke the item. You may be able to glue back the item as well. The front lid come off, sometime you have to tilt the machine with another person. This will allow you to get to the under side.
