Question about Exercise & Fitness

Open Question

Hi, I have a crane power lx5 treadmill. It runs for nine seconds and then stops. It gives a number 3 error--speed sensor.

It gives a number 3 error--speed sensor. I have tried to get a new sensor, but I was told that there are no parts available. Can anybody please tell me what I can do to make the treadmill work again?

SOURCE: dishwasher problem

Hi Sharon , Im not finding your model number dwf415. See if you have high temp wash and heated dry buttons on your dishwasher. If you do, press high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry in that order. This will run the service mode and reset the board. If you don't have those buttons post the cycles you have or the full model number. Catriver

SOURCE: Treadmill runs then stops. E1 error and sometimes works fine.

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.

SOURCE: Error Code 3

I'm no expert appliance repair guy but this worked for me.
After systematically shorting out all the two wire sensors by disconnecting them from the controll/display panel I was left with the 4 wire connector going to the small circuit board wedged into the condensor.

I shorted out the black and yellow wires while this connector was disconnected, and plugged it in. You need some fine wire for this.
Plugged it in and the compressor and everything came on. Nothing on the display... unplugged it from the wall. Plugged the 4 wire sensor (maybe called the condensor sensor), plugged it back into power. E3 error gone, and the unit is working like a charm.

I looked at the small PCB on the condensor and only notice one ASIC and one capacitor. My guess is I drained the capacitor and it is happy.

Now all I need is the hose fitting to take advantage of the pump.

Good luck.

Error 1 - Start up error. This is caused because the belt was commanded to move and the opto (speed sensor on the motor) has not seen any movement or the belts movement was interrupted prior to it reaching its commanded speed. To fix Verify opto operation in Diagnostics, Motor Test
Mode, Section 2. Verify DC voltage at connector P6 pins 1 and 2. Verify that LED 4 on the Motor Controller flashes as the motor moves. Let me know if you need any more help. Fitness Fix-It

How do i fix a lifegear treadmill 97520?


Try below:

ERROR CODE
DESCRIPTION
E1
Speed error (The treadmill running speed is 3.2 kph faster than the displayed
speed). The treadmill will stop immediately when the console detects this error.
E2
Speed error (The treadmill running speed is 3.2 kph slower than the displayed
speed). The treadmill will stop 16 seconds later after the console detects this
error.
Troubleshooting / Resetting error codes
In the rare event of the treadmill displaying an error code ("E" followed by a number), simply reset
the computer by:
1. Step off the treadmill. Ensure that you are clear of the running belt.
2. Turn the treadmill off at the master power switch located near the motor housing.
WARNING: Ensure nothing is positioned near or under running belt which may possibly block
it's normal operation.
3. Turn the treadmill on at the master power switch.
4. Ensure that the Safety Tether Key is securely and properly installed onto the console or just
reinstalling the Safety Tether Key can also reset the display.
If the above does not clear the error code, please contact the nearest Dealer/Service Center

My treadmill runs for 9 secons and stops and shows E1


Ok. So the first thing to try is to calibrate the speed.
You do this by doing the following:
  • With the SAFETY KEY in place, hold the ELEVATION UP and SPEED DOWN buttons for five seconds. The console will beep twice, "ENG0" will appear in the Distance window, and a number will appear in the Elevation window.
  • Press SELECT until "ENG3" appears; this is for Auto-Calibration.
  • Press START to Auto-Calibrate.
  • The treadmill will calibrate minimum and maximum speed, and minimum and maximum elevation. When Auto-Calibration is complete, the treadmill will reset to User's start screen. This process takes three to five minutes.
Make sure there are no errors. . .and that the speed goes from super slow to super fast and then stops. . .. if it stays slow. . or stays fast. .or error code appears during calibration, there is a problem.
If after a good calibration sequence, if it still does the stopping and E-1 after 10 seconds. ., then you need to (Power off and disconnect treadmill). . .then unplug the speed sensor from the lower power board, blow into the connector on the wire, and add a little contact cleaner spray to the connector on the board.
Recap: If it actually runs. . .but stops after a few seconds. . but the calibration runs and passes fine. .. .more than likely it is a speed sensor misread or a faulty speed sensor.

Unplug the treadmill. Locate the console key and place the safety or reset key into the treadmill console. Replace any parts that need replacing, or is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill.
    • 3
Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.

Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill. The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place. Your treadmill is reset.move on to the next step.

My matrix MX-T5x start running and stop in seconds. With the error code E7. What is the problem ?


Hi,
By E7 it means Speed sensor feedback missing. You have to check the speed sensor mounted near the motor pully. Remove the speed sensor and clean it well Then refix it then check the tread mill by powering ON. If then also the problem remains the same , You have to replace the speed sensor.
ok

Client run on treadmill then suddenly its stop and display an error speed, then 5 seconds treadmill belt moves again and moves faster whats the problem of that?


hi,
There are two possibilities for this problem
1. Check the speed sensor on near the motor pulley. Remove the sensor and clean it and re-fix it. then make a try. if problem remains then
2. The motor speed controller is faulty. There is an IGBT for controlling the motor speed. If it get shorted the motor will run it its high speed.

Be sure before opening the treadmill remove the power.
ok
