Belts stop turning and “err LS” Speed sensor.
1. Cycle power off and on. 2. Put the machine in calibration mode (see Calibration procedure in Owner’s Manual) but do not start the calibration routine. 3. Remove right rear plastic cover to view LED diagnostics on control board. Caution: Machine is on. Current is active!! 4. Locate LED D on the motor controller board. LED may be lit or unlit. 5. Manually advance the treadle with your foot, and check if LED D is blinking. 6. If LED D is not blinking, then the speed sensor is not supplying a signal. Check that the speed sensor wire is plugged into the motor controller board, to the connection labeled “P1”. Check connection of speed sensor to jumper wire. Check speed sensor adjustment (use business card to set gap between sensor and pulley). If LED D still does not flash replace sensor.

HI our Bowflex series 3 treadmill is giving us a continued Err L5 code when trying to use our machine. We bought it used so do NOT have ant trouble shooting instructions. Any advice?


Hi There, L5 error should refer to the "LS" error which looks up to a speed problem. When you start the machine up, it boots fine and then when you press start or go is says err ls ? If the walking belt doesn't move at all when you try to start it, listen for a "Click" on that lower board when start is pressed..... If the walking belt moves for a second and then stops and the console says err ls, then you may have a speed sensor problem. These control boards are repaired by Jatinah Electronics who can be found with a google search. Good Luck!

LS Error with No Belt Movement on Landice Series Treadmills

LS Error on Landice L-Series Treadmills with No Belt Movement 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
Corrective Action A) Enter Open Loop Speed mode and set treadmill speed to confirm proper line voltage to pwm board and that the green BELTSW light is lit on the relay board. Replace upper display board or relay board if necessary.
B) Inspect speed control wiring and correct wiring if necessary:
  1. Checking purple wire from V+ on pwm board to P3 on the relay board
  2. Checking orange wire from P1 on pwm board to P1 on the relay board
  3. Checking brown wire from P2 on pwm board to P2 on the relay board
  4. Confirm P3 on pmw board has no connection
C) Inspect motor control wiring, checking wires from motor to A+ and A-. Correct wiring if necessary.
D) Inspect motor brushes verifying brushes slide freely, are at least 3/8" long, are curved and have no burns or cracks. Also check the brush springs and verify that the brush copper wire is not burned or broken. Replace both motor brushes if necessary.
E) Inspect motor turns and is not seized up or has a broken shaft. Replace motor if necessary. Also verify at least 90VDC present from the black (A+) wire and white (A-) wire from the pwm board to the drive motor. If voltage is present, replace pwm/relay combo board. If no voltage present, replace drive motor.

The belt won't move, Err-L5 keeps on coming on what seems to be the problem can u help me Pat Morelli


L5 or LS is short for Low Speed error

It basically means that the speed sensor is not picking up a signal. Unfortunatley its a pretty vague error code and can be caused by several different problems.

First you have to determine wether or not you have belt movement. If you have a LS with belt movement you know that it is related to the speed sensor itself (or the MCB motor control board - the part of the MCB that handles speed sensing function). If you are getting an LS w/belt movement you have to check to see if you have power output from the MCB. If you have no power output, check fuses, if fuses are good you will need the MCB replaced.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
