My treadmill not running after 7 seconds diplay shows L5


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH


It is common to see this error as and L5 error, but it is actually an LS error. The following information will define this error and give you the possible solutions to fix this issue.

LS Error with No Belt Movement on Landice Series Treadmills

LS Error on Landice L-Series Treadmills with No Belt Movement Probable Cause A LS error on the Landice L-Series treadmills can also look like L5 and this error code means there is a loss of speed signal. If this error occurs with no belt movement, the causes for the LS or L5 error are:A) Faulty upper display board or faulty relay board
B) Improper speed control wiring
C) Improper motor control wiring
D) Worn or faulty motor brushes
E) Faulty pwm/relay combo board or faulty drive motor
Corrective Action A) Enter Open Loop Speed mode and set treadmill speed to confirm proper line voltage to pwm board and that the green BELTSW light is lit on the relay board. Replace upper display board or relay board if necessary.
B) Inspect speed control wiring and correct wiring if necessary:
  1. Checking purple wire from V+ on pwm board to P3 on the relay board
  2. Checking orange wire from P1 on pwm board to P1 on the relay board
  3. Checking brown wire from P2 on pwm board to P2 on the relay board
  4. Confirm P3 on pmw board has no connection
C) Inspect motor control wiring, checking wires from motor to A+ and A-. Correct wiring if necessary.
D) Inspect motor brushes verifying brushes slide freely, are at least 3/8" long, are curved and have no burns or cracks. Also check the brush springs and verify that the brush copper wire is not burned or broken. Replace both motor brushes if necessary.
E) Inspect motor turns and is not seized up or has a broken shaft. Replace motor if necessary. Also verify at least 90VDC present from the black (A+) wire and white (A-) wire from the pwm board to the drive motor. If voltage is present, replace pwm/relay combo board. If no voltage present, replace drive motor.

B) Speed sensor is damaged or faulty
C) Display cable is damaged or faulty
D) Improper speed control wiring Corrective Action A) Speed sensor should sit parallel with the flywheel and gap between speed sensor and flywheel should be within 1/16". Adjust speed sensor if necessary.
B) Inspect speed sensor connector to relay board. Check for pushed pins or loose wires. Repair or replace speed sensor assembly if necessary.
C) Inspect upper harness or display cable connector to relay board. Check for pushed pins or loose wires, giving specific attention to pin 5 (brown) and pin 9 (green). Repair or replace display cable if necessary.
D) Inspect speed control wiring:
  1. Checking purple wire from V+ on pwm board to P3 on the relay board
  2. Checking orange wire from P1 on pwm board to P1 on the relay board
  3. Checking brown wire from P2 on pwm board to P2 on the relay board

Dryer wont start.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

so you started first by checking the dryer door switch correct? then if you had a multimeter you would check that power does come in from the wall and goto the board then leaves the board and goes to the motor as well and also goes to the timer as well Do you have any error codes at all?if the dryer door switch is bad this could be why your motor is not starting please message me back with your reply Thanks again Rick

AEG Lavatherm 58800. Errors E54 - the motor cannot turn the load (but very little loaded) E51 - door suddenly opens


Hi if the drum is not stiff and runs free and the motor is energised but not powerful enough it can be thr start capacitor located nearby the motor. its a small cylindical silver can rated at 8 microfarads (125 00 20-33/4 approx £8.50 .) You cant measure it the best way is to try one known to be good. If its not that it is more likely to be the electronic board. You can look for cracked soldered joints and resolder (lead free solder) otherwise its a new electronic.hope this helps

I have a Bosch 500 plus model. I was drying a blanket by itself when the dryer just shut off. The blanket was in a ball. I spread it out and turned the dryer back on and it wouldn't start. No error codes...


The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

do you hear like a click noise, it may have tripped your overload switch, it is located on the motor on the inside of the dryer. You will need to pull the front panel off and investigate. the screws on the inside of the door, pry up on the top corners, remove panel carefully as the door switch is connected to it, lift top lid back 90 degrees, look at belt, should be centered on drum and should be able to rotate drum with some resistance. there are two switches on the motor on resets the other trips, the rest will click when reset. Good Luck Tim

Wont start


Is the motor running but the tub not spinning? You can tell by feeling for air movement out the exhaust after you start it or by listening to the dryer (put your ear against it and listen for a humming sound).

If motor is running your belt is broken and will have to be replaced.
