It sounds like you have a reed switch malfunction. The reed switch is located next to the front drive roller at the drive pully under the motor hood. It is the little black wire with the pick up on the end. It need to be about an 1/8th of an inch away from the magnet that is mounted in the pully. If it looks lined up and is not twisted, check the other end. It is plugged into the controller on the other side. If all looks fine, you just might nee to get another one.

Hope this helps

    Screen states Lube Belt , do not have user Manual , Where are lubrication points and what type "lube" can I use ?


    It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months or 150 miles to maintain optimal performance. Once the treadmill reaches 150 miles, the console will display the message "LUBE" or "LUBE BELT". The treadmill will not operate while the message is showing. Hold Stop for 5 seconds to suspend message for 5 miles. Your treadmill came with a bottle of lubricant which can be used for two applications. If you need lubricant, contact Horizon Fitness. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon Fitness.

    • Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power

    cord at the wall outlet.

    • Loosen both the rear roller bolts. (For best results, place two removable

    marks on both sides of the frame and note roller position). Once the

    belt is loosened, take the bottle of lubricant and apply it to the entire

    top surface of the running deck. Tighten both rear roller bolts

    (matching up the marks for proper position) to original position. After

    you have applied lubricant, plug in the power cord, insert the safety

    key, start the treadmill and walk on the belt for two minutes to spread

    the lubricant.

    • Lubricate the air shocks with Teflon based spray.
    • Once lubrication is complete, reset the console by pressing and holding 'STOP' and Speed '+' buttons for 5 seconds.

    Message in the display "err 2" and my kettler treadmill doesn't work

    Hi Rendra,

    Try this:
    Switch the treadmill off and then on again.
    Push the "minus" speed button and the "stop" button simultanuously.

    If all is well you will now have entered the maintenance mode.

    Next push the "plus" speed button and the "stop"button smultanuously.
    Now you you've reached the error mode.

    Push the "plus" or "minus" speed button to browse the error codes untill you've reached "L er".
    The push start to erase the message.

    Turn the power off and then on again to restart the treadmill.

    With any luck the error has disappeared and the treadmill will function again. If'll have to contact Kettler.

    Btw...This error occurs when the belt is "pushed" by the runner. For example when you put weight on the handlebar and the push your feet backwards.
