Recalibrate the machine if speed is not registering, belts stop turning or the display readout shows an "err, LS, OS" on the face. Calibrate the Bowflex TreadClimber 5300 by plugging it in. Stand on the foot platforms, or floor mat. Do not stand on the walking belt. Insert the safety key. Press the "start" key when "CAL/PRSS/STRT" shows on the readout. If readout fails to show the "CAL/PRSS/STRT" symbol, turn off machine and turn it back on. Press "ENTER" and then "DOWN SPEED" at the same time until "CAL/PRSS/STRT" shows up on the display. Belts will start and stop during the calibration; do not be alarmed. Do not make any adjustments or interrupt the display of numbers as the unit goes through the calibrations. When the machine is finished calibrating, the readout will display "CAL...PASS" and you can press the "POWER" key to get out of the calibration section sincerely.
The machine needs to be re-calibrated if its an 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.
AT FIRST YOU MUST REMOVE COVER AND SEE CAREFULLY TO FIND SENSORS SOME SENSORS ARE PHOTO SENSOR AND GET ON DUST AND CAN NOT GOOD WORK THEN BETTER THIS IS YOU CLEAN DUST VERY VERY GOOD PERHAPS SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

The motor must move the drive pulley for calibration to pass. remove rear covers and check drive belt. you should hear the lwr board relay click to engage the motor. if you hear it and the motor does not move and you have checked the belt then you need to test the motor. Typically remove the belt and turn by hand...it should be very smooth and spin freely. If not replace the motor. Direct 9 volts to the motor leads unplugged from the board will tell you if the motor is good. be careful as capacitors are present and risk of shock is always possible. capacitors stay charged for about 10 mins after unit is unplugged
Check the wire connection at the bottom of the right upright. Male Female white connectors. if they are good then check speed sensor under the left rear treadle. Must be about credit card distance from drive pulley. Remove rear covers to access. Note you will have to remove both side covers and back cover. 10 Screws.
Check the speed sensor and make sure it is no farther than a credit card away from the drive pully. Unplug unit Located...remove left and right rear covers and back cover. 3 screws in each and 4 screws in back. Follow 2 black wires up to drive belt pulley under back of left treadle. slide sensor in with cc between it and the pully. Recalibrate
