Question about Exercise & Fitness
The whole unit powers uo perfectly, but on pushing "START" the 5 sec countdown completes and the unit powers off ? The 3,5 HP DC motor does not engage at all I alternatively get the L5 or E4 ERROR CODE ?? WITH A MULTIMETER on the DC MOTOR input leads I get a reading of 10 - 16 V DC ? (which would indicate it is in communication with the upper control panel ? PCB ? But when the START BUTTON is pressed the voltage drops to ZERO and the drive motor does not move at all Incline feature etc still work The magnetic speed sensor on the drive wheel is clean, dry and correctly positioned as is the pickup track on the pulley This has happened suddenly, previously the motor was a bit sluggish to start sometimes but functioned correctly at varying speeds onceb it started ? In am presuming I have a switching or electrical contact problem somewhere between the 220 V AC POWER supply and the 220 VAC - 229 V DC Transformer that is preventing the DC POWER reaching the main drive motor ? (and presuming the 220 DC motor is working OK, it spins quite freely by hand Can anyone point me in the right direction or have had this problem before , I am semi hemiparesis (left side paralysed after a series of strokes and I urgently need to get this working for my rehab. I will probably have to supervise this as I have very limited mobilty and am unable to get down on my knees etc Any all suggestions much appreciated Is there a site where I can download an instruction manual for this machine Thanks John H my email yachtshelaa@ yahoo.co.uk

I have the same treadmill with the same problem statement. Here is how I fixed it:....Open the lower shroud that covers the motor. You must remove 4 or 5 screws. Taped to the inside of the shroud should be a document with a calibration procedure on one side and electrical specifications on the other. It will tell you how to run the calibrations. You need to hold the stop button and the + speed button as you insert the safety key. This will put you into calibration mode. My treadmill started working again after I ran the incline calibration routine. Hope this helps.

1) This error code has 2 options
a) Elevation Motor: a) lube the gear and shaft b) adjust the potentiomenter c) test the motor see my personal tips for help.
2) Display board: a) adjust the reed swithc , see the diagram attached, clean, tight the wires connector very well.
After you did the adjustment RUN the software calibration for diagnose and troubleshooting.
God bless you

Testimonial: "I cannot find my manual on the site :-( I have the original manual but this type of information is not displayed. I am not sure how to adjust the 'elevation motor' ? I still cannot see the magnet/reed switch on either the motor pulley or the front roller - are you sure all treadmills have these and might it not be built into the actual motor? The link to your "personal tips" does not take me to the correct page?"
