ERR 05 always means speed sensor problem.If it is defective or loose contact will always cause this issue.The sensor controls the pulley belt to rotate.So your treadmill is not working.
You need to pull the cover off. Check for burned wire or short circuit on the board and loose sockets.
Use multimeter to test the sensor.

I have common service Treadmills manual.Use it for having some idea.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

A proximity sensor is telling you the belt is incorrectly aligned. Probably too loose. Bolts on end of shafts control belt tension. Turn in if loose, out if too tight.

Freespirit treadmill

Turn treadmill off. Disconnect drive motor wires from lower control board (Mtr + and Mtr -)
terminals. Power up in OLS mode (FAST & START). Bring displayed speed up to 99.
Measure across the Mtr + and Mtr - terminals with your voltmeter (DCVolts). You should
measure at least 90 vdc on a 110V treadmill and 180 vdc on a 220V treadmill.
If you are not getting dc volts out of the lower board, replace it.
If you are measuring the proper dc voltage out, replace the drive motor.

BH treadmill error E 1 Whats the fix?

ERR 01 indicates a speed issue. In this case, the motor speed as reported from the optic sensor differs

from the speed setting.

Analysis: Optic sensor signal issue -- Either the optic sensor signal is not right, or it is read incorrectly, or

the signal is not reaching the display.

Test the speed sensor. clean it, and tight the connector very well.see the diagram attached.

God bless you

I get the worse electrical shocks from my treadmill...the other day I got a really bad one and the treadmill shut off and when I started it up again all the numbers on the console are cut in half??

Better check the harness where it runs up the supports. Some of these had the harness mis-routed and screws were able to damage the wires and create shorts.
