Does a Sportcraft TX400 treadmill have one or two magnets? I keep getting error 3 so I found the sensor and see that it has two places for magnets on the wheel but there is only one in there? It seems to run ok with the cover off but when you put it back on the error comes up again. I checked for loose wires and cracks but dont see anything. I noticed when the pulse moniter light is one the error appears.

Location of speed sensor on sportcraft tx 400 treadmills


It is a simple magnet and Hall effect transistor if you have 2 small wires. It usually attaches to the 1/8 inch mini plug. You can test it with an analog meter, the resistance will be stable at rest, and with treadmill in motion, the resistance will change as the magnet passes the hall effect switch. moving the track at slow speed manually will be enough to see the needle move. Speed is calculated off of the rate of those pulses.

Sportcraft tradmill are very safe. First check and make sure there are no recalls on you unit. Do that on line or call Walmart where you most lickly got you treadmill. Try lubing you deck wich is under the belt. This is something that needs to be done to stop friction... Frition may have worn down the motor. Get back to me

TX 4.9 sportcraft treadmill


Info from PDF files located on Sportcrafts website under manuals.
E3 – No speed sensor reading. Unit shuts down. This is the most difficult repair diagnose. The speed
sensor is connected to the frame of the treadmill near the drive pulley on the front roller. There is a
small magnet on the side of the pulley wheel. The sensor tip must be no more than 5mm from the
magnet. If for any reason the distance is greater than 5mm the treadmill will shutdown
Adjust or replace speed sensor.
Treadmill: Speed Sensor Replacement
1. Make sure your treadmill is unplugged before you begin.
2. Remove the motor cover located in the front of your treadmill, it is held on by a few screws.
3. Locate your speed sensor; it is the small T shaped part with a red and black wire coming from it.
4. Remove the 2 screws in the speed sensor and remove the old sensor.
5. Place the adjustment holder on the frame with the open holes facing the pulley wheel, the prongs facing
up and way from the pulley wheel. Insert the screws but don’t tighten fully.
6. Now place the speed sensor over the prongs with the square part facing the pulley wheel and the red and
black wire to the far right.
7. Plug the treadmill back in and slide the speed sensor until it is 5mm from the magnet inside the pulley
wheel, you may have to do this several times until you can position it so it no longer shuts down. Use 2
nickels to figure out the spacing. The width of 2 nickels is 5mm.
8. Once you find the correct position tighten the screws all the way; being careful not to touch any of the other electronics
9. Place the motor cover back on and enjoy your machine.
