    Thanks micromaster but i have already checked for current up to the display motherboard to make sure it wasnt a wire problem .. On this type of bike you have to begin pedaling before pressing the start button.. Thanks for any help..

To start open the door at the bottom of the control panel and remove the 9V battery. Eventually replace it with a fresh batttery to reset the control board.

If that does not fix the problem the control assembly should be replaced, this is sold as a single part and is normally considered not serviceable at component level.

    I forgot to mention that the parts for your model can be purchased here. They do not sell the single replacement board, or LCD display for example , and for that reason the part is difficult ro fix.
    Give them a call , either to purchase a replacement console , or to send the one that you already have for repairs.

    Let me now how it goes.

    Do not forget to leave feedback at the end.

Check the Life Fitness treadmill for the following:

  • Make sure there is proper power to the Life Fitness treadmill and that it is plugged into a dedicated 15-amp circuit.
  • Check the stop switch for proper operation.
  • Check to see if the ground plug is broken off the power cord.

Hi there,

disconnect for a while the panel from any battery connections for an hour. also better check battery terminal for any dirt or corrosion due to some leak on the battery liquid.

Let me know and update me again here.

How to replace a battery on the life fitness 5500 stepper

Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH

Some of these units have 9 volt battery found in the back of the console. Also some of these units that do not have the 9 volt battery, still used the same console shell. If you have an empty spot with no wiring in it, then you are fully relying on your external power supply. I am attaching a link to the picture of the back of the console I am referencing.

Life fitness recumbent bike problem

We had exactly the same thing. If you take the covers off you will find a black battery pack in the bottom. It is about the same size as a cordless drill battery. We got a replacement from Maplins - cost about £10. It works perfectly now.
