The machine needs to be re-callibrated. 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.

The instruction book doesn't mention calibration. be sure to not callibrate in metrics, however (there's no way to easily tell the difference - you have to ask) or you'll be strolling like a walk in the park at 5 "mph".

Thanks for using FixY - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Why does my Bowflex TC5000 cut out?


If you're running the machine on a dedicated circuit then your unit is drawing too much current. This can be caused by friction and drag. Solution: Lube deck/belt. If problem persists, replace deck/belt. If you ignore this fix this will blow your controller. .

Measure across the Mtr + and Mtr - terminals with your voltmeter (DCVolts). You should
measure at least 90 vdc on a 110V treadmill and 180 vdc on a 220V treadmill.
If you are not getting dc volts out of the lower board, replace it.
If you are measuring the proper dc voltage out, replace the drive motor.

The belt won't move, Err-L5 keeps on coming on what seems to be the problem can u help me Pat Morelli


L5 or LS is short for Low Speed error

It basically means that the speed sensor is not picking up a signal. Unfortunatley its a pretty vague error code and can be caused by several different problems.

First you have to determine wether or not you have belt movement. If you have a LS with belt movement you know that it is related to the speed sensor itself (or the MCB motor control board - the part of the MCB that handles speed sensing function). If you are getting an LS w/belt movement you have to check to see if you have power output from the MCB. If you have no power output, check fuses, if fuses are good you will need the MCB replaced.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

My Bowman treadmill 7 series stopped working. It just shows 2 words: safe out. Please help.


Make sure the magnetic safety key ('safety pull' or 'emergency stop magnet') is in place. SAFE OUT indicates that the safety key is not in position or is otherwise not working properly.

For more information consult the following manuals:

I have an L5 error on the display. Belt not working. What do i do?


This is a LS or speed sensor error, it can be caused by a belt that is too tight, non lubricated walking belt and or a bad sensor. If the belt does not move at all, Bowflex will tell you to buy a new lower control board. $227 direct from them (Nautilus)

Message in the display "err 2" and my kettler treadmill doesn't work


Hi Rendra,

Try this:
Switch the treadmill off and then on again.
Push the "minus" speed button and the "stop" button simultanuously.

If all is well you will now have entered the maintenance mode.

Next push the "plus" speed button and the "stop"button smultanuously.
Now you you've reached the error mode.

Push the "plus" or "minus" speed button to browse the error codes untill you've reached "L er".
The push start to erase the message.

Turn the power off and then on again to restart the treadmill.

With any luck the error has disappeared and the treadmill will function again. If not.....you'll have to contact Kettler.

Btw...This error occurs when the belt is "pushed" by the runner. For example when you put weight on the handlebar and the push your feet backwards.

Freespirit Treadmill


Did you try it before you bought it and it was working. when you move the unit and pluged it into the wall outlet was it on? if yes then you may have damaged the lower board. If you can not get that part then the treadmill has died. Is it a Bowflex or a Free spirit.
