The L5 message means that there is a problem with the speed setting switches. Some models have one set of speed adjusting stitches on the handlebar and another set on the console. One of them is defective and is causing the problem.

More likely LS= Loss Signal open the motor shroud on the motor their should be a cylindrical shape sensor (magnetic). Plug in treadmill and on the motor control board their should be a L E D (red or amber) by manually rotating the motor you should see that light flicker if it does sensor is good if not replace sensor. Next thing if sensor is good check motor brushes to see if they are mis-align or worn if worn less than 3/8" in length replace them

LS or L5 error is the speed sensor. Because it is such a vague code I can't just tell you exactly what's wrong with it. I can tell you what it may be.
If you are lucky it's just a fuse. If you have belt movement, it's likely that its just a fuse. If there is no belt movement, it can be a computer failure. the MCB will need replacing.
If you have belt movement and you check the fuse, and its not blown, then the speed sensor is no good and needs replacement.
In most cases its a fuse.
Good luck, hope this helps!

Hi, L5 or LS is short for Low Speed error. It basically means that the speed sensor is not picking up a signal. Unfortunately its a pretty vague error code and can be caused by several different problems. First you have to determine whether 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 without 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. If you have sufficient output its drive motor related. Aside from a problem with the drive motor, it is possible that another factor is stopping the motor from turning (ie locked up roller bearing, foreign debris, etc.) If it is a case of
faulty electronics the next question is, is to figure out what caused it to fail. Most MCBs don't fail on their own, something else usually causes them to fail. The bottom line: The LS error can be
complicated and should really be inspected by a professional to full assess the issue. What I am saying is call the manufacturer and if it is under warranty send the treadmill back.
