The power switch on Precor treads is also a circuit breaker. If it trips when plugged in, you have a dead short in the machine.

SOURCE: c956 precor treadmill

not to sound funny but are you sure that you have this tread set in the units (mpg/kph) that you require. i have worked in loads of gyms and its a common problem that people think the belt is running to fast because its set in kph and that thinks its in miles eg 9mph = 14.5kph
you can check and change the units in the club setting menu.
hope this helps :)

I'm guessing the internal fuse is blown, which is part of the safety feature when you pull the magnetic key off. You need to put the little magnetic key onto the "stop" area after each use, and it will re-set. If you take the key off "start" and the machine stops, you can't start again until you put the key on "stop". Once you do that, the main switch should work again.

Dear Sir:

Since this is the c.breaker.You must replace it.

The reason is mechanismo inside is broken, for that fact is faulty.

Proceed with the same model+amper+voltage: Please do not replace by other model with distint voltage+ amper+ model.

Disconnect the power cord before to replace, you must find in any radio schack, or computer, or hardware. sincerely G-d bless you.

SOURCE: precor c956 treadmill trips circuit breaker on switch

( 1) You have a problem with a motor faulty.or main motor faulty or transformer.

2) The test that you did is good.

3) That means that motor is possible in short circuit.
4) Since the breaker is triiped that means the motor is consuming more ampere that normal, that indicate some possibles troubles inside the motor: a) Winding Short+ ground(carcase). You mus repair the motor or buy a new one.
5) One more thing you must to test the Main Motor controller board, that controll the Main Motor, possible Faulty.

Attached the block diagram for better ilustration that I did and you can use for better understanding.

Attached to my Tip about how to measure the motor:

Power windows wont go up, abs light stays on, 4X4 light stays on, power door locks, sunroof won't oper, doors not opening from inside

When electrical stuff doesn't work it is a switch, fuse or fusible link. When you have multiple circuit failures it is likely a bad fusible link. Get out your shop manual for the car and check which fusible link feeds power to these devices; then, test it. If the fusible links all check good, it may be a major connector plug in the electrical harness that is loosing contact. Good luck.

Green light stays on when trying to turn off tv. picture go's off when cable remote is used but green light stays onand you can see that screen is still on?

You need to set up the cable box remote for your TV , now you are just turning off the cable box. Some cable boxes have a switched plug on the back that will turn on and off with the box. If yours has the switched receptacle you can use that to turn the TV on and off by plugging your TV into the switched receptacle. Make sure the TV power is on, the receptacle will kill the power so the clock on the TV wont work. Otherwise you need to set the code for your TVs remote and use the system power button.

Glow plug light wont go out

Your diesel vehicle is equipped with glow plugs, and also with a Glow Plug Light that will either come on and stay on, or flash or blink when a fault is detected by the ECU (engine management unit).

Tomtom930 wont stay charged..cahnged the battery

it sounds like your power adapter isn't supplying enough power to the unit. You should be able to try switching out the adapter with another and see if that helps. If the doesn't help, then there may be a problem with the recharging circuit on your GPS. AT which point you should contact TomTom.

Laptop wont stay on longer than approx 3 seconds. How do I check the switch?

if the switch at least starts the laptop.. then it is not the switch

check that you can boot the pc with the battery pulled out of the laptop and the power supply plugged in...

if this works then you need a new battery

if this does not work.... then the motherboard or the power adapter plug maybe the issue.. is the plug on the side of the laptop solid... or sloppy fitting..

if solid then the motherboard cpu and memory are the suspected components next..

is there beep noises during boot for the three seconds that occur???

Charging issue

It’s either the plug on the AC adaptor (might have a broken wire) or the laptop’s input jack that the adaptor plugs into. The input power jack is soldered onto the motherboard. Could also be a problem with the charging circuit on the motherboard (would need to replace motherboard to fix).

Amilo pro v7010 laptop wont switch on

If so, unplug it from the wall charger, remove the battery and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in, leaving the battery out. Attempt to power up. You may lose what work you hadn't saved from the previous use, but nothing else.
If that doesn't work, it's possible that
A) power socket isn't completely connected to the motherboard anymore, so
B) battery isn't charging properly, or
C) the wall charger has gone bad.
I'd say you're in hibernation tho.
Good luck
