Question about Lifespan Exercise & Fitness
SOURCE: error message on recumbent bike
The problem might be the gearbox. I know because I have the same problem. Keys fitness is out of business, but "The Treadmill Doctor" has purchased the inventory of parts for the bikes. They will help you troubleshoot, and have parts available if you need them. The number is 1-888-340-0482. Or, you can go to treadmilldoctor.com.

We had exactly the same thing. If you take the covers off you will find a black battery pack in the bottom. It is about the same size as a cordless drill battery. We got a replacement from Maplins - cost about £10. It works perfectly now.

If this unit has not been used for that period of time then the 6v batt has died ans needs replacing call National Gym Parts @ 1-800-496-7278 to order part# LC001.5
HERE IS THE PROCEDURE TO REPLACE THE BATT:
Tilt the bike on its side, remove mounting screws securing the battery to the bracket. Remove the battery just enough to access and disconnect the black (neg) wire from the (-) terminal and the red (pos) wire form the (+) terminal. Replace battery and reverse procedure when installing battery

No speed/RPM reading, Console displays
"E3" error code
Check data cable integrity All wires in cable should be intact. If any are cut or crimped, replace cable.
Check data cable connections/orientation, insure cable is connected securely and oriented properly. Small latch on connector should line up and snap into place.
Check magnet position (requires shroud removal) Magnet should be in place on flywheel. If no magnet is present, replace the flywheel or the entire base unit (if unable to replace flywheel).
Check RPM Sensor (requires shroud removal) RPM sensor should be aligned with magnet and connected to data cable. Realign sensor if necessary ( 1/8" clearance between sensor and flywheel) if still error 3 then check the sensor with a multi meter unplug sensor leads attach meter to sensor connectors. Have someone by hand rotate the pedal while you observe the multi meter opening and closing the internal sensor circuit if no change in meter readings then replace the sensor.
