Question about Bowflex TC3000 Treadclimber

Sensor wires detatched during initial assembly of Bowflex TC1000

During initial assembly of my TC1000, I accidently detached the sensor wires from their connections to the board. Now I can't see where they originally were connected. How can I access this area under the treads and also how do I know where to plug them in? Is there a diagram or schematic somewhere?
I appreciate any help

You will need to make contact with bowflex if you broke the item. You may be able to glue back the item as well. The front lid come off, sometime you have to tilt the machine with another person. This will allow you to get to the under side.

    MTR + is RED wire to Mtr

    MTR -- is BLACK wire to Mtr

    if they are reversed belts will move backwards.

    Capacitors stay charged for about ten mins after unit is unplug. Risk of electric shock. The io wires are different so cant miss match them and the nuetral is white wire. Ground is green.

    Remove right rear cover to access board. its tight but can be done. Hope this helps. Please rank if you find this info helpful :)

In some way the signal from the speed sensor is not making it to the control board. Trace the wire from the sensor to the control board and make sure there are no cuts or crimps. There is also an unused wire on the TC1000 that looks exactly like the speed sensor wire but doesn't connect to anything (it is used on higher models), make sure you are not connecting to that wire.

Will only run 9 seconds, then shut off TC1000 bowflex


There is a service manual available by email from Bowflex, if you contact them they will send it to you. It includes troubleshooting steps. In this case it is most likely that you will need to re-position your speed sensor (instructions with pictures are in the service manual)

My bowflex treadclimber starts for abut 3sec then err L5 shows on the screen PLEASE HELP!


The machine needs to be re-calibrated if its an L5 error.
Your speed sensor must have been damaged either during shipping or use. You'll need a new one. If under warranty - give Bowflex a call. They will ship you out a new sensor and guide you through installing it via the phone... re-calibrating the machine... and getting it operational again. It will take about 2 hours.

My bowflex treadclimber goes slow/fast/slow again and stops. It then shows an E1 on the display. What can I do to fix this? I have no directions for trouble shooting. Also, should I be able to speed...


The speed sensor is not connected correctly. There should be a jumper wire that runs from the speed sensor over to a harness by the control board on the other side of the machine. There may be a second jumper wire connected to nothing, only used in the 3000/5000 models. There is also a wire that comes from inside the treadles that isn't used on the 1000. The current assembly manual available from bowflex online seems to explain it better.

SERVICE RIDE CONTROL


Hi. this car is equipped with a air ride system that is very sophisticated. There are four air bag Assembly that are located and attached to each tire axle on your car. each axle has a air ride sensor unit that regulates the air in and out flow during transit. there are air flow lines that run to each tire or suspension assembly as well. these lines are fed threw a compressor system that is located inside the trunk.

When you had your unfortunate accident, the damage on the front driver side has initiated some sort of damage that has damaged the sensor or it has damaged the air bag or sir line assembly. the warning light is a reminder that is instructing you or the owner , to take this car in for this service.

I suspect there has been some sort of damage to the air bag assembly on the affected side of your vehicle.

it may be a sensor or it could be more serious like an damaged air line or bag. The best way to find out is to take it in for the inspection by a qualified service tech.

PLease rate and god bless:)

Error Code E1


I had the same error message E1 at 10 seconds according to the LCD display on an older Treadclimber TC1000. I called Bowflex 1-800-792-6784 and first thing they told me was to check the drive sensor on the back left corner of machine. It is two wires connected by 2 white connectors that snap together. The end of the sensor has a rubber cap that is supposed to be approximately 1/8 inch from the drive pulley. The rubber cap plugs into a small hole within the "firewall" of the drive pulley, but the end of the cap does not actually touch anything. They can email you a picture of it. If it ever gets knocked loose, the machine will register this e1 error, in some cases- hope this helps.getattachment.aspx&hm__qs=file%3d3d2f2ee0-2668-46ea-b32c-db049d56cb37.jpg%26ct%3daw1hz2uvanblzw_3d_3d%26name%3daw1hz2uwmdiuanbn%26inline%3d1%26rfc%3d0%26empty%3dfalse%26imgsrc%3dcid%253aimage002.jpg%254001c99c08.13bd6320&oneredir=1&ip=10.12.128.8&d=d6608&mf=0&a=01_0b590aaade5e800af268d347750ab151eca93264be20cd9ce2166e583b18cfe9
