What Does This Error Code Mean?
Using Error Codes to Diagnose Repair Issues on Cardio Equipment
Error codes are used to alert the user or technician to various component malfunctions on cardio exercise equipment. When equipment is malfunctioning error codes will show up on the input display. The exact error code and what it means will vary from one brand of fitness equipment to another. The error code can be looked up in the manual of the specific model of exercise equipment. Manual are often available online.
Once the user or technician looks up the error code, they will be informed which element of the equipment needs to be repaired, or at least a place to start. One error code can lead the technician to inspect one group of components, while another symptom or error code may lead the technician toward another area of the machine. It is important to understand that certain error codes are very straightforward while others may simply point you in the right direction.
Keep in mind that what an error code means for one machine may mean something different for another. Therefore it is paramount to have either a copy of the manual for the specific model of the equipment, or some kind of cheat sheet with the most common error codes for that machine.
