Re: treadmill stop then display an error speed
If the is a Next Gen unit need to enter Diagnostic menu by pressing and holding pause then press clear twice. Continue to hold pause until until read service menu. press any arrow up and select system test ,then press
enter the display will begin to automatically scroll thru available options. press enter to access Main Motor Module the next window will be Speed Automatic.
Upon entering this test mode you will able to check the drive motor and motor control board. By using the the speed arrows you will be able see the actual speed if functioning if not it could possibly be the speed sensor or wire harness ( SIMPLE CONTINUITY CHECK WILL RULE IN OR OUT THE HARNESS ) and point the problem. Now if their is no belt movement then hit clear and proceed over to SPEED CONTROL ERRORS hit enter this test allows seeing the motor controller conditions that are being displayed on the motor controller display if any of these come up then the controller need s to repair or replaced:
Max Temperature, Maximum voltage, Fault Line 1 error, Static current trip and dynamic current trip ( this also can a running belt tension this can result in a cannot obtain speed error message ) hit clear to get out of diagnostic once you eliminated the problem. Good Luck!!!

i recommend to replace the control board. This is very critical matter for the electronic machine. see the diagram attached, How the controller motor hast the 80 of control of machine. go to www.fitnessrepairparts.com and get it
RUN the software calibration for easy diagnostic and fix it. Go under the HOOD motor, and follow the steps. The Steps for Newer
Style Console Calibration:
Locate the calibration area on the rear or
underside of the console (a hole, near the console's center, that goes
through to the electronics board. (This hole should
not have a screw in it.)
Insert a pencil (eraser end), into
the hole and feel around for the cal button (will click when
Press the button 2 times (with
the pencil eraser). The first click should show CL11 in the
console, the second click should show CL21.
If the process was done correctly, and
CL21 appears in the console, you are in "calibration mode."
The next few steps consists of pressing buttons on the
console and observing settings. This will not
require any other tools.
Press ENTER. CL22 should display in the
TIME window and (??) in the SPEED
Press ENTER. CL23 should display in the
TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
Press ENTER. CL24 should display in the
TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
Press ENTER. CL25 should
display in the TIME window and (??) in the SPEED window.
Press ENTER. CL26 should
display in the TIME window. You should then see the letter
Press ENTER. You should see "SS"
or "55" in the console.
Push the STOP/START button. For
safety, at this point, you should step off, or be off, the treadmill.
Push the ENTER button. The walking belt
should start to move, accelerate to maximum speed, then stop on its
When the belt stops, the
incline should self test by raising to its highest incline
position, then lowering back down to its lowest position.
Once the incline test is complete, push
the POWER button 2 times. The unit should shut off and the console
should go completely blank. If this happens, the
treadmill is done calibrating and is ready for use.
If the letter "F" appears in the SPEED or
INCLINE window when the power button is pressed 2 times, the treadmill is
indicating a failure somewhere either in the SPEED or INCLINE (depending
on the window the "F" appeared in). Troubleshooting the failure would be the next step. God bless you
this happen because lack of maintenance schedule, shut down and produce enough friction and loud, and shut down for to protect the electronic systemLUBE Inmediately the deck belt,maybe is time to replace the deck belt. by WORN. 2) LUBE THE rollers bearing too 3) test the motor voltage input, if there are the MOTOR need REPAIR.see my persosnal TIPS. God bless you
Switchthe power off without unplugging the machine. Do not take the safety key out ofits place.
Inspectthe bottom of your console. The calibration switch is in a small hole. Insertthe eraser end of a pencil into the hole and softly push the button. You willsee CL11 on your console after you push this button.
Usethe Speed + or - key to select MPH or KPH. Push the Power key to save yourselection.Sincerely.E.CUADRAMANAGUA, NICARAGUA C.A.
To get to the service menu start by pressing the pause button and keep it held down as you hit the clear button twice. The treadmill will reset and go into the service menu, and now you quite pressing the pause button.
This mean that you unit is not equiped with a receiver inside the treadmill. Some models that was an option. Polar is the only brand that works with Lifefitness. You may have a bad upper display board. You can buy a replacement for a small amount of money.
