Question about Bowflex TC3000 Treadclimber

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 recalibrated. How do I do this? He also said that the motor might be wearing out?

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.

My bowflex treadclimber starts for abut 3sec then err L5 shows on the screen PLEASE HELP!


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.

Error Code E1


I had the same error message E1 at 10 seconds according to the LCD display on an older Treadclimber TC1000. I called Bowflex 1-800-792-6784 and first thing they told me was to check the drive sensor on the back left corner of machine. It is two wires connected by 2 white connectors that snap together. The end of the sensor has a rubber cap that is supposed to be approximately 1/8 inch from the drive pulley. The rubber cap plugs into a small hole within the "firewall" of the drive pulley, but the end of the cap does not actually touch anything. They can email you a picture of it. If it ever gets knocked loose, the machine will register this e1 error, in some cases- hope this helps.getattachment.aspx&hm__qs=file%3d3d2f2ee0-2668-46ea-b32c-db049d56cb37.jpg%26ct%3daw1hz2uvanblzw_3d_3d%26name%3daw1hz2uwmdiuanbn%26inline%3d1%26rfc%3d0%26empty%3dfalse%26imgsrc%3dcid%253aimage002.jpg%254001c99c08.13bd6320&oneredir=1&ip=10.12.128.8&d=d6608&mf=0&a=01_0b590aaade5e800af268d347750ab151eca93264be20cd9ce2166e583b18cfe9
