Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That error - presuming and guessing you to have a Pacemaster brand of machine - signifies ultimately that you probably dislodged a cable connector while moving the machine. Covers may have to be taken off, and the connector for a cable going to the motor controller board, and/or to the control console, will have to be re-seated.

If no looseness nor visible breaks nor damage to the wire harness going to the 'lower controller board' can be seen, then you may have some sort of damage that is not readily visible, that was done when the machine was moved. But let me know what happens after you re-seat connectors and examine wiring and cabling, after getting the outer cover pieces off the machine.

Also, please tell me what the machine's maker and model # *****

(Please rate my answer, if this answers your question adequately already. Thanks.)

Unfortunately I am unable to accomplish what you suggested. Are there service people in Little Rock AR who will come to your residence and work on the treadmill?
Expert:  Russell H. replied 12 months ago.

Yes, the Little Rock area will have servicers available.

But please tell me what maker (and if possible, what model #) your treadmill is, so that I can be sure to refer to you the appropriate servicers experienced in that brand of equipment.

(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

The maker and model of the machine that you are asking me about, will be on the manufacturer's label, usually found on a not-very-prominent part of the outer case, such as the back.

Here is other information asked for in regard to the treadmill: it is a Pacemaster silver select xp serial nbr 602 x 51153
