Question about Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill

2 Answers

Motor sparks and treadmill eratic at low speeds

The tredmill will not start from a stopped position. You have to get the speed indicator up to 4.0 and manually start the treadmill deck. Once the speed gets up to 4.0 it will run. But the motor sparks. It is almost as one side of the magnets are catching in the motor which seems to provide an oblong feel to the deck. If the speed is too low, the deck stalls and I get an LS1 error.

If you have a lot of use on this, it might be the motor, there are adjustments for the speed issue that is LS1 but it might be because the motor is bad. The brushes can wear out. Motors for that are expensive in the range of 350 USD

SOURCE: F63 sole treadmill, low speed error when inclined

If the calibration does not pass you may need to check the speed sensoralignment. You must understand the instruction for calibration is under the hood for motor.
1) Remove the motor cover hood by loosening the 4 screws that hold it inplace (you do not need toremove them completely).2) The speed sensor is located on the left side of the frame, right nextto the front roller pulley (thepulley will have a belt around it that also goes to the motor). Thespeed sensor is small and blackwith a wire connected to it.3) Make sure the sensor is as close as possible to the pulley withouttouching it. You will see a magneton the face of the pulley; make sure the sensor is aligned with themagnet. There is a screw thatholds the sensor in place that needs to be loosened to adjust thesensor. Re-tighten the screw whenfinished.

2) if the problem persist you must Test the main motor for open, ground 3) the main control board faulty. See the block diagram that I did as person like you that understand that 90% of functions the main motor controller board has effect.

Dear Sir:
1) Lube the deck belt very well, as your instruction manual indicate for maintenance.
2) Try to Run software calibration after you fix it. For easy diagnose and troubleshooting.
3) The elevation motor can be faulty for lack of maintenance too, again Run the software calibration.

sincerely. God bless you

The Steps for Newer Style Console Calibration

  1. Locate the calibration area on the rear or underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes through to the electronics board. (This hole should not have a screw in it.)

  2. Insert a pencil (eraser end), into the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when pressed).

  3. Press the button 2 times (with the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the console, the second click should show CL21.

  4. If the process was done correctly, and CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode." The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the console and observing settings. This will not require any other tools.

  5. Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  6. Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  7. Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  8. Press ENTER. CL25 should display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.

  9. Press ENTER. CL26 should display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter "E."

  10. Press ENTER. You should see "SS" or "55" in the console.

  11. Push the STOP/START button. For safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.

  12. Push the ENTER button. The walking belt should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its own.

  13. When the belt stops, the incline should self test by raising to its highest incline position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.

  14. Once the incline test is complete, push the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console should go completely blank. If this happens, the treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.

  15. If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step.

Aspire tredmill stops working suddenly and has error message e1


see the detail and fix it.God bless you

ERR 1 - Motor Movement

ERR1 indicates a speed issue. In this case, the motor speed as reported from the optic sensor differs

from the speed setting.

Analysis: Optic sensor signal issue -- Either the optic sensor signal is not right, or it is read incorrectly, or

the signal is not reaching the display.
However test the s.sensor for open and faulty. Clean it, and tigh the connector very well. see the diagram atached.

What is an Error 22, 23,and 26 on a precor 9.35?


Error 22 indicates that the drive motor (running belt) has been instructed to start, by either manual or program control, and the monitoring system has not received any response from the speed sensing system indicating that the drive motor has started.
Error 23 indicates that the speed sensor signal was lost while the treadmill was in operation
Error 26 this error monitors the speed sensor signal and verifies the the speed sensor signal is appropriate for the requested speed. If the speed sensor signal is incorrect or erratic an Error 26 will be displayed.
Unplug unit and remove motor shroud and try these procedures:
The treadmill utilizes an optical (infrared) speed sensor and the line of sight between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target is obstructed. The speed sensor position relative to the speed sensor target is incorrect. The speed sensor potentiometer adjustment is incorrect (when equipped). The speed sensor target is damaged
Carefully, vacuum out the drive motor compartment with a static safe vacuum cleaner. Pay special attention to the area between the speed sensor and speed sensor target. Adjust the speed sensor position so that the space between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target is 3/16 inch and so that the speed sensor photo eye is aimed at the larger portion of the targets wedge shaped section. On hall effect speed sensors (magnetic sensor) the space between the end of the speed sensor and the flywheel tooth should be 3/16 inch. If the treadmill utilizes a speed sensor potentiometer, locate the speed sensor potentiometer on the lower PCA. Set the speed sensor potentiometer at mid-range. Start the treadmill and increase the speed to 6 mile per hour. Carefully adjust the speed sensor potentiometer to the point where the treadmill is operating the smoothest. Increase the treadmills speed to full speed at repeat the previous adjustment. These two adjustments are typically small and are usually only a matter of fine tuning. . Most speed sensor targets consist of a circular arrangement of alternate black and silver sections. If the speed sensor target is torn or badly scratched the speed sensor may receive an incorrect reading. Replace the speed sensor target.

SOLE F80 TREADMILL STARTS TO RUN THEN STOPS. "LSI" OR "L51" APPEARS IN THE TIME BOX AND "LOW SPEED" APPEARS IN THE DISPLAY


SimplerFASTERSolution So, I had the same problem. After removing the motor cover I checked everything out per earlier instructions. Everything looked great. Having been a software geek for as long as I've been running (35 years), I as inclined to believe this wasn't a hardware problem at all. It appeared to me that the system just needed to be recalibrated. So...here's what I did. I turned the treadmill on and selected the "Manual" program and hit "Start". The monitor, as usual, counted down 3-2-1. As soon as the rollers started to move I hit the "Slow" button on the right upright several times so I knew that the treadmill was running at it's slowest speed. I then started walking on the belt. I started tapping the "Fast" button and let the belt gradually increase in speed and took it up to 6.0. No problem! But...nobody wants to start each workout that slowly. I had a hunch it was 'fixed'. So, I stopped the treadmill and turned everything off. I started it again, selected "Manual", immediately hit the "2" then he "4" then the "6" on the right hand "Speed" panel, and it ran like new. No service call, no new speed sensor, no fiddling with the little 'diode', etc. Give this a try first...no need to even remove the motor cover. Best of luck!

Description
Error 22 indicates that the drive motor (running belt) has been instructed to start, by either
manual or program control, and the monitoring system has not received any response from the
speed sensing system indicating that the drive motor has started.
Possible Causes
1. The treadmill utilizes an optical (infrared) speed sensor and the line of sight between the
speed sensor and the speed sensor target is obstructed.
2. Drive motor brushes are bad.
3. The speed sensor position relative to the speed sensor target is incorrect.
4. The speed sensor potentiometer adjustment is incorrect (when equipped).
5. The speed sensor is inoperative.
6. The lower PCA is bad.
7. The lower PCA to upper PCA interconnect cable is bad.
8. The upper PCA is bad
Possible Remedies
1. Carefully, vacuum out the drive motor compartment with a static safe vacuum cleaner. Pay
special attention to the area between the speed sensor and speed sensor target.
2. If the motor brushes do not make sufficient contact with the motor commutator, the drive
motor will not start when drive voltage is applied. Replace both drive motor brushes.
3. Adjust the speed sensor position so that the space between the speed sensor and the speed
sensor target is 3/16 inch and so that the speed sensor photo eye is aimed at the larger
portion of the targets wedge shaped section. On hall effect speed sensors (magnetic sensor)
the space between the end of the speed sensor and the flywheel tooth should be 3/16 inch.
4. Locate the speed sensor potentiometer on the lower PCA. Set the speed sensor
potentiometer at mid-range. Start the treadmill and increase the speed to 6 mile per hour.
Carefully adjust the speed sensor potentiometer to the point where the treadmill is operating
the smoothest. Increase the treadmills speed to full speed at repeat the previous adjustment.
These two adjustments are typically small and are usually only a matter of fine tuning.
5. If the speed sensor in inoperative the drive motor will start and run briefly before the error 21
occurs. If it is possible to access the speed sensor wiring, measure the D.C. voltage between
the speed sensor leads Two of the leads will constantly read approximately 5 Vdc. Two of the
leads will toggle between 0 Vdc. and 5 Vdc. as you slowly rotate the speed sensor target. If
you do not see both measurements above, the speed sensor is inoperative and must be
replaced. In some cases the speed sensor is mounted on the lower PCA and the the lower
PCA must be replaced.
6. Substitute a known good lower PCA to determine if the lower PCA is bad.
7. Substitute a known good interconnect cable for the existing cable.
8. Substitute a known good upper PCA to determine if the upper PCA is bad.
