SOURCE: Err LS on Bowflex Treadmill

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!!

SOURCE: bowflex treadmill series 7 saying safe out

I had the same problem, however the treadmill remained in 'safe out' status even when the Safety pull pin was correctly inserted.
The cause of my fault was that one of the kids decided to insert a wrist watch into the round hole located on the control panel's lower cover. In doing so this unplugged the cable conector for the magnetic switch which operates the 'safe out' function, from the main circuit board. The repair was quick and easy, i turned the power off, removed the bottom cover from the control panel and simply plugged the magnetic switch back into the main circuit board and all was back to normal.

SOURCE: incline motor is not working

Dear Sir:

1) If everything is working , now the only thing you can do:

2) check the Motor Lift the Voltage DC ( direct current) is diffferent from the Motor Drive that work with 115 VAC( Voltage alternating current). See the Voltage in the plate of the Motor if 48Vdc or whatever voltage is indicated.

3) Check the breaker and reset , and clean with solution with 50% oxigened water and 50& ethilic alcohol (100%).

4) If all is clean, turn on the motor Lift, and See if there are voltage and the terminal Motor( Check with VOM-Voltimeter in the range DC,) .
Check again the voltage indicate in the plate of Motor, if the Motor is NOT Working, the Motor is Bad( Some brushes wear, and winding overheating) replace or repair.

Conctac me, if you need some additional Help.


Have a great time, blessing.

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:
