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.

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!

I have a treadmill york barbell max series 2, keeps displaying err in the speed window and wont start up at all, sometimes it will start working and then sometimes it wont and err comes up again

1) You have out of adjustment the sensor reed switch,see the 1/8" or 3mms aprox.
2) With this you will fix it.
3) However if the problem persist, you must check if the display board is o.k or faulty.
4) Test the 5VDC for IC( Including EPROM, ROM,etc) Tight flexible cable for Display Board vs Lower Board(Main Controller Board).
5) Since the Lower Board send the Power Supply coming from the Transforme you must Test it, and then power supply for +5Vdc.
6) You must have Strong Conclusion if the problem is Upper Board or Lower Board(Main Controller Board) .
Finally The Lower Board Control 90% functions of the Treadmills.

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.
