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.

E1 error code : Unplug unit remove motor shroud and check the distance between the speed sensor and the flywheel and ensure that the speed sensor is properly attached to the motor frame. Check also speed sensor connections.
Unplug the electrical cord from the wall outlet and from the treadmill, wait 1 minute and turn the power switch on again. If treadmill recovers to normal operation, you may continue to use the treadmill.
Check the motor brushes either they worn or not sitting properly

Testimonial: "very helpful thanks saved me lots of money "
Most E1 codes are speed sensor or no belt movement.
You wil lneed to unplug your unit the remove the motor shroud then plug unit in most Motor Control boards have LEDs. First thing I would do is start the unit look down at the board one of the light should start flickering this is a signal being sent to the lower board from your upper console. This tells me that the upper console and cable connecting the upper and lower boards is working also notice if the drive motor moved if not then E1 will come up. Now turn your unit off then turn back on to reset , next manually push with one of your feet the belt you should notice another flickering light the faster you push the light will flicker faster this tells me that the speed sensor is working if not replace the speed sensor. Next procedure check the motor using a fully 18v drill battery or car battery which ever is handy connect the two motor leads usually red and black in some cases black and white to the battery, if the motor move at a speed of approx. 1 mph then you have a good motor if not you can have worn motor brushes or open winding the motor.
If the upper board and drive motor are good then the only thing left is the motor control board if you have a multi meter handy connect the lead to the two spades that motor lead came off of the press start you should get a DC voltage of about 5 to 10V DC if not replace the board.
