SOURCE: mind of its own
Hey there Ian,
If your treadmill has an optical speed sensor and hasn't been cleaned for a while, dust, dirt or lint may be obstructing the infared eye of the speed sensor. Try cleaning the treadmill.
Or maybe you need to replace the upper display, although, you may have a loose wiring harness that would cause the same problems. Open the motor case and verify the wiring harness is plugged into the lower board snugly. Also, remove the upper console and verify the harness is plugged into the back of the console snugly as well.
The only other thing I can think of is that maybe the Invisible Man has been squatting in your house and is training for the Marathon :)
Definitely, inspect the components and try and isolate the source of the problem yourself first, before contacting a dealer for parts, as they can cost a fortune..

I had this happen on our machine after about 5 years of use. I just recalibrated it and it appears to be working fine now. See the manual for information on the steps needed to take in order to do this.

The speed sensor is not connected correctly. There should be a jumper wire that runs from the speed sensor over to a harness by the control board on the other side of the machine. There may be a second jumper wire connected to nothing, only used in the 3000/5000 models. There is also a wire that comes from inside the treadles that isn't used on the 1000. The current assembly manual available from bowflex online seems to explain it better.

The machine needs to be re-calibrated if its an L5 error.
Your speed sensor must have been damaged either during shipping or use. You'll need a new one. If under warranty - give Bowflex a call. They will ship you out a new sensor and guide you through installing it via the phone... re-calibrating the machine... and getting it operational again. It will take about 2 hours.

This is probably a faulty speed sensor or the speed
sensor is not plugged in properly. Its also possibly a faulty motor control
board or lower board. The error codes will differ between makes and models but
could be e1.
Watch this videos and tip.
You must concluded if the inclination motor is faulty or Main Motor Controller Board is faulty.
