SOURCE: the machine will quit wright after you start and

Had my TC5000 for a year and this is the first time this happened. I use it everyday. Googled "Bowflex Teadclimber error codes" and found this link  download.dfxi.com/supportdocs/AM/Bowflex/BFX_TC135_AM_2008.pdf which is a pdf manual. 
I'm going to try this fix now, hope it works for you and me
Here's what it says for ERR LS:
Belts stop turning and “err LS” or “err OS” is displayed Calibration Re-calibrate machine using Owner’s Manual calibration procedure. Speed sensor 1. Cycle power off and on. 2. Put the machine in calibration mode (see Calibration procedure in Owner’s Manual) but do not start the calibration routine. 3. Remove right rear plastic cover to view LED diagnostics on control board. Caution: Machine is on. Current is active!! 4. Locate LED D on the motor controller board. LED may be lit or unlit. 5. Manually advance the treadle with your foot, and check if LED D is blinking. 6. If LED D is not blinking, then the speed sensor is not supplying a signal. Check that the speed sensor wire is plugged into the motor controller board, to the connection labeled “P1”. Check connection of speed sensor to jumper wire. Check speed sensor adjustment (use business card to set gap between sensor and pulley). If LED D still does not flash replace sensor. I/O cables If LED D is flashing when the belts are turning but err LS or OS persists check connections and for signs of visible damage to any of the three I/O cables. If no damage, check continuity using a multi-meter. If a multi-meter is not available contact customer service for replacement cables and further assistance.

SOURCE: my bowflex treadclimber starts for abut 3sec then

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.

My Bowflex Treadclimber keeps coming up with an Error L5. This error message shows up 5 seconds after turning the machine on. My husband looked it up yesterday and said that the machine needs to be...


L5 due to the screen is actually LS (lost signal) the first place to check is the gap of the speed sensor. under left treadle 2 black wires. Removing the rear covers will allow you to see the lwr cntrl board and move the belt by hand. The gren led light should flash once per revolution of the drive pulley. If not then it is the speed sensor. Adjust sensor to pully about thickness of a credit card. then calibrate unit.
LS is also tripped by any broken wires or bad connections. Start at sensor and board first.

After approx. 30 min. of walking on full speed it


I had this happen on our machine after about 5 years of use. I just recalibrated it and it appears to be working fine now. See the manual for information on the steps needed to take in order to do this.

I get a reading "Err 1" and it will not run at all.


Try recalibrating your machine. Use the owners manual for the steps. This might work. I had an L5 error and it wouldn't run either. Recalibrating fixed the problem.

My tc 3000 makes a loud noise and I get an err l5 on display screen


not sure about the loud noise but my issue with the l5 error was a simple adjustment to the speed sensor.. take of the left and rear covers, then look for the sensor that goes into the red grommet attached by 2 wires. slide a business card in between the wheel and the red grommet.. then make sure the speed sensor is pushed all the way against the card and then remove the card. that solved mine :)
