E1 on Sportcraft TX2.5 : motor won't start

My TX2.5 from SportCraft, model 3-1-04-025F won't start anymore. There is 118 volt on both sides of the fuse, and the blue wires from the transformer give about 16 volts, so both the fuse and the transformer work. The console start, counts a few seconds and then give error 1. What can I do?

    At not point in the cycle is there voltage sent to the motor, so the problem is in the control board, perhaps a busted capacitor?

    (sorry, I didn't realize pressing enter would send the comment). Also, the power led on the control board never lights up.

If the LED light doesn't turn on it mean the control board isn't getting any power... maybe there's a break in the one of the connections (or a bent pin), this will take a few testing to find the problem but start at the main power leads, then with the switch turned on, check for power leaving the switch (if your model carries one), follow up by checking for continuity at the fuse, them check the control board for any voltage (should be voltage going to the console panel)... try starting the treadmill and listen for a relay click, if it does then check the motor leads for voltage reading (if you didn't hear a click, do it anyway). if there is no current at the motor the control board is bad, if there is then the motor is bad... if you didn't hear a click and no is voltage reading at the motor but voltage is going to the console, then the console is bad... also you can consider the safety key, but you will know that right away as some model tells you to "insert key" but if the key is in and it says "insert key" it can be a broken connection at the key switch or the console is bad.

Hope this helped, enjoy.

Testimonial: "I know it's not the key, it warns otherwise. As for the fuse, there are 2, there is a button fuse accessible from the outside, and one directly on the control board. Both get voltage on both sides of them. The problem is clearly ON the control board, perhaps a busted capacitor. I am trying to figure out what is wrong exactly."

SOURCE: TX 4.9 sportcraft treadmill

Info from PDF files located on Sportcrafts website under manuals.
E3 – No speed sensor reading. Unit shuts down. This is the most difficult repair diagnose. The speed
sensor is connected to the frame of the treadmill near the drive pulley on the front roller. There is a
small magnet on the side of the pulley wheel. The sensor tip must be no more than 5mm from the
magnet. If for any reason the distance is greater than 5mm the treadmill will shutdown
Adjust or replace speed sensor.
Treadmill: Speed Sensor Replacement
1. Make sure your treadmill is unplugged before you begin.
2. Remove the motor cover located in the front of your treadmill, it is held on by a few screws.
3. Locate your speed sensor; it is the small T shaped part with a red and black wire coming from it.
4. Remove the 2 screws in the speed sensor and remove the old sensor.
5. Place the adjustment holder on the frame with the open holes facing the pulley wheel, the prongs facing
up and way from the pulley wheel. Insert the screws but don’t tighten fully.
6. Now place the speed sensor over the prongs with the square part facing the pulley wheel and the red and
black wire to the far right.
7. Plug the treadmill back in and slide the speed sensor until it is 5mm from the magnet inside the pulley
wheel, you may have to do this several times until you can position it so it no longer shuts down. Use 2
nickels to figure out the spacing. The width of 2 nickels is 5mm.
8. Once you find the correct position tighten the screws all the way; being careful not to touch any of the other electronics
9. Place the motor cover back on and enjoy your machine.

SOURCE: turned on, runs a few seconds, shuts off with a #3 on display

Contact the manufacturer. You need the optical disc. It is the speed sensor. Eric For Treadmill replacement parts, please contact our Consumer Affairs Dept. at (800) 526 - 0244

SOURCE: Treadmill runs then stops. E1 error and sometimes works fine.

Yes if speed sensor is too far from magnet it will not pick up belt movement. This confuses the computer and as a safety precaution it shuts the machine off. Find speed sensor and check for proper alighment with magnet.

I have a sportcraft tx 2.5 and was cleaning it and some water got into the housing where the motor and circuit board is located. Now all I get is the number 7 on the display and it won't run.


Dear Sir:

1) Please unplug the machine
2) Put with air gum machine, and pass in all board and circuit for heating.NOT OVERHEATING.
3) Wait for 24 hours. if you have some infrared lamps, will be better.NOT OVER EXPOSED.
4) Turn ON the machine, and proof, if the problem remain, the board is faulty. and replace.
5) However try to RUN the software calibration for better diagnose, troubleshooting, and fix it. see the block diagram attached.
God bless you
