Question about Bowflex Series 3 Treadmill Msrp 129999

Open Question

Our Bowflex Series 3 Treadmill will not start up. The power is there because the red light at the bottom front is on. the start button does nothing. When I pull of the safety plug, it reads version and either Sr3 or 5r3. when I removed the cover, I noticed that there is only one red light on and the one next to it on the mother board which was flashing previously, is now out. what can I do?

SOURCE: Err LS on Bowflex Treadmill

The machine needs to be re-callibrated. L5 error.
Your speed sensor must have been damaged either during shipping or use. You'll need a new one. If under warranty - give Bowflex a call. They will ship you out a new sensor and guide you through installing it via the phone... re-calibrating the machine... and getting it operational again. It will take about 2 hours.

The instruction book doesn't mention calibration. be sure to not callibrate in metrics, however (there's no way to easily tell the difference - you have to ask) or you'll be strolling like a walk in the park at 5 "mph".

Thanks for using FixY - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

SOURCE: I have a Nautilus Bowflex 5 series treadmill.

I will have to check the error code but sounds like a heat problem. When you get too much friction between the walk belt and the deck it builds a lot of heat which creates more drag on the motor. This causes the motor to overheat which in turn usually shuts the machine off. You can let it cool and go back exercising until the cycle repeats. If this sounds like your issue, try lubricating the walking belt. If it's not in bad shape it should make a difference. The machine should run longer. 10-15 is pretty quick though so it make take a couple of application of lubricant. The belt may need replacing if the need for lubricant becomes too regular.

SOURCE: bowflex treadmill series 7 saying safe out

I had the same problem, however the treadmill remained in 'safe out' status even when the Safety pull pin was correctly inserted.
The cause of my fault was that one of the kids decided to insert a wrist watch into the round hole located on the control panel's lower cover. In doing so this unplugged the cable conector for the magnetic switch which operates the 'safe out' function, from the main circuit board. The repair was quick and easy, i turned the power off, removed the bottom cover from the control panel and simply plugged the magnetic switch back into the main circuit board and all was back to normal.

My Bowman treadmill 7 series stopped working. It just shows 2 words: safe out. Please help.


Make sure the magnetic safety key ('safety pull' or 'emergency stop magnet') is in place. SAFE OUT indicates that the safety key is not in position or is otherwise not working properly.

For more information consult the following manuals:

Proform 550xp Treadmill in continuous incline/decline mode!!!


i just called the manufacturer on this and found out i have a faulty control panel, but these are the steps they told me to go through to reset. If it works, then you are good, if not, you may also have a control panel issue.
1. plug in and turn on treadmill, keep red key out
2. press and hold the stop button and speed up button at the same time and hold them while you insert the red key
3. after red key is inserted, let go of both buttons
**CAUTION - be sure to stand on side bars of treadmill, clear of the belt for this next part bc it will go VERY FAST***
4. press stop button once
5. press speed up button until it reads 85 (see what i mean?!)
6. press stop button once
7. press incline down or up one time and it should get back into normal mode. mine just started a series of flashing lights and "8"s in all the "windows" so my panel needs to be replaced. here is the number i called - 1-877-993-7999. Good Luck!
