The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly.
This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch.

The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.

Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display

Nautilus t714 error code L5. Can you tell me what this error code means? Thank you. Tim


Dear Sir:
I just want to say to L5 means many things.
1)You must check socket wiring from upper board(display) vs lower board(controller motor board)
2)Short circuit in capacitor(EMI) in input circuit or Short circuit in Main Motor Test.
3)Faulty Controller Motor Board-Replace.
4)Realign Sensor Speed Motor and clean or Replace
Since the Controller Motor Board control 90% function in Treadmill , will the most probably cause, after you did Test all Step before mentioned. And strong concluded the Lower Board is Faulty.
sincerely.

If you need further assistance, please reach me.

Landice L7 gives me a L5 reading on the screen


Your L7 error looks like L5 , but its really LS which mean lost signal. Unplug unit take motor shroud off then plug unit back in wall outlet. When looking in front unit you will see a Motor control board and there are LED lit up one of them should be an amber light this is you speed sensor which is attached to the top of your motor. Manually rotate the fly wheel and see if that light flickers if it does then your speed sensor is working properly if not replace speed sensor. The next thing to look at is the motor brushes to if they are worn unplug unit you should see slitted caps on both side of motor remove them if they are less than 3/8" they need replacing. That for the most parts should take of your problem. Call Landice @ 1800-526-3423 have the serial# handy their on all the components in the unit

I have a error reading of l5 or ls not too sure york fitness z16


Hi,

The L5 message means that there is a problem with the speed setting switches. Some models have one set of speed adjusting stitches on the handlebar and another set on the console. One of them is defective and is causing the problem.

How do you wire l5 to 2 ohm


Hello lholt07,

If the L5 has 4 ohm voice coils, you simply wire both voice coils in parallel, both marked and unmarked positive terminals together and to the amp and likewise with the negative terminals. If the L5 has 2 ohm voice coils, it cannot be wired to 2 ohms.

Hope this helps.
