This error code can indicate a problem with the AC motor.

Approximately how old is the treadmill?

Is it in regular use?

Have you tried connecting the treadmill to a different power source?

treadmill is 2 years old. It powers up and starts to work then the ac6 code pops up on screen and locks up.
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

Is the treadmill used regularly?

Are you planning on carrying out the testing, troubleshooting and repairs yourself, or are you looking for a repairer in your area?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Its used daily and yes I would like to trouble shoot myself. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with the power source. Have looked on the internet to see what code ac6 and couldn't find much. I think the computer reset may be different than most treadmills.
Exercise Equipment Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

The AC6 error code indicates a problem with the AC motor.

You can start by removing the cover and testing the AC motor - let me know if it works ok when you connect a power supply directly to it?
