The L5 message means that there is a problem with the speed setting switches. Some models have one set of speed adjusting stitches on the handlebar and another set on the console. One of them is defective and is causing the problem.

Your L7 error looks like L5 , but its really LS which mean lost signal. Unplug unit take motor shroud off then plug unit back in wall outlet. When looking in front unit you will see a Motor control board and there are LED lit up one of them should be an amber light this is you speed sensor which is attached to the top of your motor. Manually rotate the fly wheel and see if that light flickers if it does then your speed sensor is working properly if not replace speed sensor. The next thing to look at is the motor brushes to if they are worn unplug unit you should see slitted caps on both side of motor remove them if they are less than 3/8" they need replacing. That for the most parts should take of your problem. Call Landice @ 1800-526-3423 have the serial# handy their on all the components in the unit

LS or L5 error is the speed sensor. Because it is such a vague code I can't just tell you exactly what's wrong with it. I can tell you what it may be.
If you are lucky it's just a fuse. If you have belt movement, it's likely that its just a fuse. If there is no belt movement, it can be a computer failure. the MCB will need replacing.
If you have belt movement and you check the fuse, and its not blown, then the speed sensor is no good and needs replacement.
In most cases its a fuse.
Good luck, hope this helps!

Yeah - the sensor is the problem... It is magnetic... You can find it next to the wheel on the belt - It is fairly small.... There is a metal disc in the wheell on the belt that is a magnet.. As it passes by the sensor - the sensor registers the magnet and can simply calculate speed based on the frequency of the passes... Sometimes the sensor slides too far back and ergo can`t register the magnet passing by - Then you get the L5 error...
