Question about Exercise & Fitness

1 Answer

Precor elliptical says stuck key on upper display and sometimes flickers or doesn't even turn on at all.

If it does turn on the elliptical resistance won't work. A repair man tried a new battery which didn't work. He thinks it might be the lower PCA board, Upper PCA board or the generator. Does anyone have any thought on this?

A stuck tek generally means the hard overlay (with buttons) is faulty. I have seen where the entire console needed to be changed. The battery may have also been bad but this would have been for the flickering only.

SOURCE: the resistance on my Precor elliptical 5.17 will

There is a small motor under the shroud that operates the resistance motor. It is about the size of a roll of half dollars. Have someone use a meter and check that you are getting power to this. When you turn on the machine the motor should move the resistance forward then back. You can hear this everytime you turn it on.

SOURCE: Schwinn 431 Elliptical doesn't register rpm's, distance, etc.

I have this same problem and called the customer service. The problem is that the rpm sensor is not working. It could be the sensor or something else. They had me check the connections first for the wiring harness at the top and middle and then sent me parts to work on the inside where I have my problem. I am still working on mine because the magnet was installed on the wrong side of the flywheel. Hope you don't have this issue.

Stuck key on display


Precor Error 05, Key Depressed at Power Up Probable Cause 1. A key is permanently depressed on the display.

3. Liquid (cleaning solution or sweat) may be on the surface of a touch sensitive display.
Corrective Action

If the Error 05 still appears, the upper PCA* is the cause and should be replaced. *Upper PCA's most commonly do not come with software. Remove the software (chip) from the existing upper PCA prior to replacement and install into the new upper PCA.
  3. Wipe away all liquid from the touch sensitive display. Reset power to the unit. If the Error 05 is eliminated, the liquid was the cause.
