Hi There, Sounds like a speed sensor at first thought. Make sure any sensors are clean and working. If sensors look fine, with the unit powered off, check very carefully for any blown fuses on the lower board. Lastly, if the unit has been moved recently, be sure all connections are good at the upper and lower boards. Good Luck and you can contact buyfitnessrepairpartsDOTcom for more help on trotters.

How To Re-Wax a Wood Deck for a Trotter Treadmill

Following are instructions on how to re-wax a wood deck for a Trotter treadmill and a list of materials needed for this procedure

Materials Needed for Re-Wax

  • 1 lb. of Trotter deck wax
  • Clothes iron (never to be used on clothing again)
  • Belt sander with 120 grit sanding belt
  • Vibrating sander with 250 and 400 grit paper
Pre-Existing condition: If your wood Trotter treadmill deck is worn down through the first ply, it cannot be re-waxed.
  1. Using a belt sander and 120-grit belt, gently sand in the same direction as the grain the glazed layer off the top of the deck until you have reached porous wood. If, while sanding, the first layer of ply has been sanded off, the deck can no longer be re-waxed
  2. Using a vibrating sander with 250-grit paper, sand the entire top surface of the deck until it is smooth and soft.
  3. After sanding with the 250-grit paper, continue sanding with 400-grit paper until completely smooth.
  4. Heat the clothes iron to its maximum temperature. Put a handful of Trotter deck wax on the center surface of the deck and place the preheated iron on top of it until the wax melts.
  5. Work the wax into the deck surface by pushing the melted wax across the deck with the iron. Add more wax as needed until the entire top surface of the deck is impregnated with wax.
  6. Apply just enough wax until the wood is saturated with wax.
Do NOT leave wax pooling on the surface of the deck.

How long does it take for someone to help me, on this site.

How fast you get answers depends on many factors. I just picked up your question but have spent time finding and reading the manual. I am by no means a treadmill expert, but my first thought was treadmill belt tension was too loose to keep the movement sensor happy.

Moving the belt manually would be irrelevant as the electronics would not be monitoring to throw up the E1 Error..

The manual tells you to check all these things.

Loss of Feedback Speed Sensor disconnected Check Speed Sensor
Speed Sensor Misaligned Check Sensor position
Faulty Speed Sensor Replace Speed Sensor
Loose Display Connection Check Display Cable
Faulty MCB (D2 LED on) Replace MCB
Faulty Drive Motor Replace Drive Motor

If BH Fitness are being no help, I would be asking them to take the machine away or get it fixed on-site.

So does the belt turn when you switch it on? Is the belt centrally aligned when it spins?

Page 35 shows belt adjustment and I would guess tension although not specifically mentioned.
