SOURCE: Your Problem: Spirit Treadmill motor will not turn on

I'd start by attaching a voltmeter across the motor contacts to see if you get any voltage when the unit is turned on. It's probably an AC motor but I'd check the label to be sure. If you get voltage but no turning either the motor or a startup capacitor is bad. If this is the case try moving the tread by hand with the unit turned on. If it moves on it's own after you start it moving then the start up cap needs to be replaced. Otherwise it may be time to replace the motor. If you don't have voltage across the motor contacts when the machine is turned on, I'd unplug the unit and trace the lines back from the motor to somewhere on the PC board. I'm guessing there's probably a relay on the PC board that controls the motor. I'd use an ohm meter to make sure the relay coil hasn't turned into an open circuit. Next I'd put a voltmeter across the relay coil, plug the unit back in, and turn the treadmill on and off several times. Ideally you should see the voltage across the relay coil go up and down as you turn the treadmill on and off. This voltage could be AC or DC depending on the type of relay used. If you get the proper voltage across the coil but the relay contacts aren’t' opening and closing to provide power to the motor then you need to replace the relay. If you don't get the proper voltage across the relay coil the problem is further back on the PC board.

SOURCE: Treadmill powers off when pressing Incline Increase "br 1" error

You may have a beltand deck problem. Test by the following procedure:
without the poweron stand on the walking belt, push the belt in the, direction it normally turns. If the belt is very difficult to turn (on most treadmill this means that you have high belt/deck friction I first apply silicone lubricant between the belt & deck to see if that clears up the problem. Most problems originate from the belt and deck 75 to 85% of the time

SOURCE: Machine shuts off when i press incline up. Belt and board look ok

THis sounds like a controller board problem. In many of the treadmills I have seen the same board controls the drive motor and the incline motor. If this product is under warranty have the company covering the warranty check it out. Anytime you buy one of these machines buy the extenced warranty. I was a field service tech for a warranty company. When you call in with a problem make it sound severe.. I have replace almost everything in one except the frame just to make a customer happy. I am not sure of the error message but i seem to remember it being associated with the controller.

Low speed L5 keeps showing up and shutting it down


L5 or LS is short for Low Speed error. It basically means that the speed sensor is not picking up a signal. Unfortunaly its a pretty vague error code and can be caused by several different problems
First you have to determine weather 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. If you have suffcient output it
drive motor related. Aside from a problem with the drive motor, it is possible that another factor is stopping the motor from turning (locked up roller bearing, foreign debris, etc.). If it is a case of faulty electronics the next question is, is to figure out what cause it to fail. Most MCBs don't fail on their own, something unusual causing them to fail. The bottom line: The LS error can be complicated and should really be inspected by a professional to fully access the issue. Cost to repair can vary greatly depending on what exactly is wrong with it. Also keep in mind, if the unit is covered
under warranty, tampering with it most likely will void it.

New free spirit treadmill - L5 code what does it mean?


Yeah - the sensor is the problem... It is magnetic... You can find it next to the wheel on the belt - It is fairly small.... There is a metal disc in the wheell on the belt that is a magnet.. As it passes by the sensor - the sensor registers the magnet and can simply calculate speed based on the frequency of the passes... Sometimes the sensor slides too far back and ergo can`t register the magnet passing by - Then you get the L5 error...
