The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly.
This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch.

The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.

Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display

What is l5 error


Probable Cause A LS error on the Landice L-Series treadmills can also look like L5 and this error code means there is a loss of speed signal. If this error occurs with no belt movement, the causes for the LS or L5 error are:

A) Faulty upper display board or faulty relay board
B) Improper speed control wiring
C) Improper motor control wiring
D) Worn or faulty motor brushes
E) Faulty pwm/relay combo board or faulty drive motor


This error can also occur with belt movement but speed will not increase. Causes for the LS or L5 error with belt movement are:

A) Speed sensor is out of adjustment
B) Speed sensor is damaged or faulty
C) Display cable is damaged or faulty
D) Improper speed control wiring

Nautilus t714 error code L5. Can you tell me what this error code means? Thank you. Tim


Dear Sir:
I just want to say to L5 means many things.
1)You must check socket wiring from upper board(display) vs lower board(controller motor board)
2)Short circuit in capacitor(EMI) in input circuit or Short circuit in Main Motor Test.
3)Faulty Controller Motor Board-Replace.
4)Realign Sensor Speed Motor and clean or Replace
Since the Controller Motor Board control 90% function in Treadmill , will the most probably cause, after you did Test all Step before mentioned. And strong concluded the Lower Board is Faulty.
sincerely.

If you need further assistance, please reach me.
