Step 1:

ERR 1 - Motor Movement

ERR1 indicates a speed issue. In this case, the motor speed as reported from the optic sensor differs

from the speed setting.

Analysis: Optic sensor signal issue -- Either the optic sensor signal is not right, or it is read incorrectly, or

the signal is not reaching the display.


Adjust the sensor speed see the diagram attaached, test for open or faulty. Clean it, and tight very well the connector

SOURCE: My treadmill belt just stopped, message error E

Unplug your unit, then remove motor shroud have a good light the sensor is either mounted on the frame by the front roller/pulley unit or it is mount on the motor sometimes by the flywheel sometimes on the opposite end. Next step is to locate the motor control board and plug you uit in. Your board should ligt up with red ,green, or amber L E Ds now manually move the running belt and you should see one of those lights flicker or not if it does then the sensor is working , then we other issues, if not either we have a defective or misalign sensor. An if your unit needs lubrication use a synthetic silcone product.

SOURCE: error 1 message on older life fitness t3 treadmill

Error 1 - Start up error. This is caused because the belt was commanded to move and the opto (speed sensor on the motor) has not seen any movement or the belts movement was interrupted prior to it reaching its commanded speed. To fix Verify opto operation in Diagnostics, Motor Test
Mode, Section 2. Verify DC voltage at connector P6 pins 1 and 2. Verify that LED 4 on the Motor Controller flashes as the motor moves. Let me know if you need any more help. Fitness Fix-It

Because you are hearing the lift motor making a noise, it sounds like the gears in the motor are bad. The fix is to replace the lift motor.

Error 26 is what's known as a Motor Pulse Width Incorrect. It basically monitors the sensor signal and verifies that it's appropriate for the requested speed. If your machine uses an infrared sensor, check the line of sight between the optical eye and the sensor target, an array of black and silver wedges arranged like a pie. Ensure that it is 3/16" apart and that it's pointed at the larger point of the wedge section. Use an electronic cleaning compressed air cleaner to blow out any particles that could block it. Have a close look at the target, if it's torn or badly scratched, it will need to be replaced.

If the machine uses a hall effect sensor (magnetic) ensure the distance between the flywheel tooth and sensor is 3/16".

You can sometimes get this error if the speed sensor is faulty, but usually it will happen without you even touching the controls at that point because the lower board isn't receiving any signals from the sensor, or you will get a different error code.

Treadmill keeps stoping


Precor Error 27, Too Much Drive Motor Current Probable Cause 1. The running belt and/or deck are badly worn.
2. Drive motor is shorted or de-magnetized causing a high power demand.
Corrective Action
  1. Check the amp draw using a clamp on AC volt-amp meter during loaded and no load conditions and compare values to a similar treadmill that is known to have a good running belt and deck. Replace the belt and/or deck if necessary. Don't forget, some units have a double sided deck which means it may be flipped over rather than replaced if it has an unused side.
  2. Test unit with a known good drive motor. Replace drive motor if necessary.

1) LUBE the deck belt, this happen because the lack of maintenance , produce shut down for to protect electronic system,to due the enough friction between deck vs deck belt., maybe deck worn.
2) lube the rollers bearings
3) test the motor input voltage, if there are the motor need repair.
4) measure the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
After fix it RUN the software calibration for diagnose, troubleshooting.

1) Faulty sensor speed try to adjust it face to face magneto motor
2)Sensor speed try to tight the connector very well.
3) Replace if neceesary.4) Main motor faulty or burn. Test 115vac for input measure without load fore easy running.
5) Test the main motor controller board for 115vac input and output for +5VCD,
6) Adjust the deck bel for 2-3" for lift max.
7)Lubricate the deck bel.
8) Test the transformer for input and secondary voltage.
See the block diagram for illustration how the main motor controller has 90% aprox of function of any treadmills.

Hi, We have had our treadmill for about 3 weeks. For the past few days, when we start it up, after about 15 seconds of running on it, it stops and Error 1 shows up on the screen. It is a t40 model. ...


error 1 is a fairyl universal code for treadmills that means your control board has gone bad. Here is a list of things that will cause this to occur:

1. Improper lubrication of belt/deck (too much friction and amperage draw)

2. electrical variance (example: going from US 110 to foreign 220)

3. potentiometer on control board may be set too low (usually blue box with turnable dial) - to change this you would have to turn the dial ever so slightly and test after each movement until the belt starts to run on its own without the error.

other than the above issues you would have to replace the motor control board

I have the Lifecore Fitness T900HR treadmill and when my husband is running it stops. We have made sure all the connections are tight even the safety key but it still stops. When I am using the treadmill...


Their might be high friction between the belt and deck thus causing the error 1 code when your husband is on it. Try lubricating the area between belt and deck using silicone lubricant ( refer to owners manual). Then the lighter of the two "aka wife" walk on the treadmill for about 5 to 10 minutes.
This should take care of the problem if not then their is an issue with the belt and deck ( 85% of problems on treadmills are belt and deck related)

Treadmill powers off when pressing Incline Increase "br 1" error


You may have a beltand deck problem. Test by the following procedure:
without the poweron stand on the walking belt, push the belt in the, direction it normally turns. If the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill this means that you have high belt/deck friction I first apply silicone lubricant between the belt & deck to see if that clears up the problem. Most problems originate from the belt and deck 75 to 85% of the time
