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?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
treadmill is 2 years old. It powers up and starts to work then the ac6 code pops up on screen and locks up.

Is the treadmill used regularly?

Expert:  Pete replied 11 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 11 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.

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?

I'll check tomorrow

Ok, let me know how it goes.
