Customer Question
I have a Lifeforce...

I have a Lifeforce T5 treadmill that rune for 15 seconds then stops.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your equipment?

Lifeforce T5

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your equipment? What have you tried so far?

I put it in storage for 5 years and it has been acting up since I got it out.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Equipment Expert to know before I connect you?

I have tried cleaning - blowing all the dust out of it and tried it on every setting.

This problem is likely cuased by a speed sensor error.

You will need to check the speed sensor for proper alignment and function. It will be located near the motor.

It should be within a credit cards width of the magnet or toothed wheel. If properly adjusted, check with an multi-meter to see if it is opening and closing by manually spinning the front roller or motor flywheel. If it isn't operating correctly it will need to be replaced.

Let me know how you get on.
