Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

Treadmill stopped working mid workout. All electrics are OK. An error code came up on the display. I think it was E3 or 3E or S3. Something like that. It appears to be in full working order except the belt is not moving and there is no sound at all from the motor. The exact model is "Image Pro II. Model bw 425". Was very expensive when I bought it, so want to sort out this issue. I've had it around 4 years, but not been used much, until about 2 weeks ago.

Hi,

The E3 error code
indicates an over speed warning.
The cause is excess drag on the walk belt or board. The drag prevents the belt from starting easily and the controller will send more power to the motor to accommodate the drag, but the controller sends to much power and thus the treadmill races. The controller then senses the over speed and shuts it down and gives the E3 code.

The motor controller weakens over time because of the excessive amperage draw of the motor do to lack of lubrication (which wears the walk belt and walking deck). Take an amperage reading of the motor it should be 2-3 amps with no one on it, with someone walking on it it should be around 6-12 amps. I would bet yours is elevated above 6-12 amps.The controller is dropping output because of the friction problem.

If you test the output of the controller you would see this, but controllers generally do this anyways because they have a current limiter. By eliminating the other possible sources of the problem (walk belt, lubricant) you could tell for sure the controller is bad. I am just trying to save you that step by replacing it as well. Replacing just the controller without the belt / deck is not recommended because you will weaken the new controller. Your motor is probably OK.

What the amperage test will tell you is if your walk belt / deck is bad.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do I clear the E6 code in a Xterra 3.0 treadmill?


An E6 or E7 error code is an incline error code. The E7 code means the potentiometer value the console is reading from the lift motor is out of range. This can happen when there is a bad wire harness connection or a damaged wire harness. It could also just mean the incline motor needs to be adjusted back into range. If all wire connections look ok, the incline motor will need to be adjusted.
  1. Turn the power OFF, wait 5-seconds and turn back ON.
  2. Get into test mode and enter through the I/O testing step. This screen will display the potentiometer value of the incline motor. Different models will have different values. Check to see if the running deck is raised to high incline level or if it is at the low level. If the running deck is at a low position press the incline up button. This will cause the incline motor to raise the running deck up. When the deck gets to a mid-level position, press the incline up button a second time to stop the deck. If the running deck is in a high incline position, use the incline down button to adjust the deck to a mid-level position.
  3. Once the unit is in the mid-level position, power the treadmill off for 5-seconds and then power it back ON.
  4. Start the treadmill.
  5. Once the treadmill starts the running deck will move to the level 0 position. If this does not resolve the issue or it will not adjust please contact customer service.
Also note that not all models will have the ability to adjust the incline motor. If the adjustment procedure is not found in the Owner's Manual then contact customer service.

The term immobilize is on the display panel and I want to start it up. How do I get it going again?


When necessary to immobilize the treadmill, set display to read SELECT A WORKOUT. (Press the STOP Key
twice if not already there). Then hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill
now displays IMMOBILIZED. In this state, the treadmill cannot be operated. The main motor and incline are
disabled. The treadmill will remain in this state across resets, power cycles, etc. To restore normal operation,
repeat the same key sequence: hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill will
display SELECT A WORKOUT again.

Lubed belt but display still says lube belt and I cant do anything how do i clear the display I have the horizon gs950t


Hi,
After lubrication you have to reset your treadmill settings. Then only the message will go off. To reset the tread mill do the following.

1. Hold the "Stop" button for three seconds to reset the treadmill and clear the current workout selection or screen. The console will reset but will save any accumulated data

2. Press and hold the "eTRAK" button for 10 seconds to reset the console date. This permanently deletes any previously accumulated data
3. Press and hold the "Stop" button while pressing the Speed "+" button. Hold for five seconds to reset the console after applying lubricant to the machine. Lubricant application is usually only necessary when you receive the "LUBE" error

ok

Life fitness treadmill display: transistor error-won't run


This error shows up if motor controller detects a failed part. This isn’t a reset-able error. Treadmill will not allow workouts until serviced.
Solution
Main motor wires/leads could be disconnected at the start of a workout. If the motor is properly connected and in working condition then the drive transistor could have failed. Check Motor Controller.
