I/O cables
If LED D is flashing when the belts are turning but err LS

the three I/O calbes and connections. If no visible damage
check continuity using a multi-meter. If a multi-meter is

problem is in either the upper electronics board or the
motor controller board. With machine on check LED A
on the controller board. If it is dimly lit replace upper
electronics (000-4430). If it is not lit at all replace motor
controller.

My dept finder reads gives me the wrong depth. Is there a way to calibrate this. I doint know the modle off hand. It is the one that gives you two side views and stright dowm. It has the temp. and speed.


If your depth is off because of where your transducer is located, calibration can be done through the menu by adding or subtracting a foot or two.  In your never to be read manual are all the instructions necessary.  If you are off by more than a foot or 2, chances are your transducer is bad.

Hi,

I will advice you try re-calibrate your treadmill, follow the procedure below to re-calibrate it,

Step 1 Stand on the side rails of the treadmill for safety purposes. Remove the safety key. Step 2 Press and hold the two incline buttons. The incline buttons are blue and on the left side of the display. Hold the up and down button simultaneously. Release the buttons when the display reads "Calibration."
Step 3 Press the green start button located either above or below the large, red stop button (depending on your model). Stay on the side rails as the treadmill belt begins to move. Both the speed and incline should go through their full range from lowest to highest, and then back down again.
Step 4 Repeat the process if the display does not read "Calibration Successful."

Thanks for calibration tip. TC5000 Nautilus. Any ideas with a "no speed sensor" error?


If you are getting a speed sensor error it usually means that the sensor has died. Try getting ahold of Nautilus to see if can get a replacement. Funny thing is that Nautilus is headquarted in the town i live in and from what i hear they have great customer service because they have happy employees.
If you have a multimeter or a light tester test the power wires to see if power is going to the sensor. If you have power going in it means that the sensor has died.

The E5 error code indicates the electronics on your treadmill require calibration. Recalibrate the machine per the instructions in your manual to clear this error code.

My Bowflex Treadclimber keeps coming up with an Error L5. This error message shows up 5 seconds after turning the machine on. My husband looked it up yesterday and said that the machine needs to be...


L5 due to the screen is actually LS (lost signal) the first place to check is the gap of the speed sensor. under left treadle 2 black wires. Removing the rear covers will allow you to see the lwr cntrl board and move the belt by hand. The gren led light should flash once per revolution of the drive pulley. If not then it is the speed sensor. Adjust sensor to pully about thickness of a credit card. then calibrate unit.
LS is also tripped by any broken wires or bad connections. Start at sensor and board first.

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
