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.

Hi
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 :)

SOURCE: Precor 9.1 won't turn on, outlet is good. (When

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:

What is the problem on a C956i when error code 15 comes up? Can this be fixed by the user or does it require a professional?


Precor Error 15, AC Input Voltage Too High Probable Cause 1. AC input voltage is incorrect.
2. AC input voltage transients. Transients can be caused by lightning strikes or by other pieces of equipment sharing the unit's AC power.
Corrective Action
  1. Verify AC feed into the building's circuit breaker is correct and connected to the proper transformer tap.
  2. Ensure the AC grounding for the unit's outlet is good and verify the unit is connected to an isolated and dedicated 20 amp circuit.

Hi, I have a Precor C956 which I bought used. It was working when I saw it but since I've had it delivered there doesn't seem to be any power. I can hear a humming noise where the power lead...


There is an on/off switch that needs to be turned on. There is also a safety key that needs to be attached. If those are both correct and there is still no power then you may have some wiring problems that you should call a professional for.

I have a C956 treadmill. I am getting error code 44, can you tell me what that means?


Precor Error 44, Un-commanded Lift Motion Probable Cause 1. Intermittent or bad connection in the lift position sensor(potentiometer).
2. Lift position sensor (potentiometer) is bad.
3. Lower PCA is bad.
Corrective Action
  1. Bad or intermittent connection of the lift position sensor (potentiometer) is the most common cause of the error 44. Inspect all wiring and connections related to the lift position sensor (potentiometer). Repair or replace wiring connections as necessary.
  2. Monitor the lift position number displayed while operating the lift in diagnostics mode. If the reading makes large changes or is erratic, the lift position sensor (potentiometer) is likely bad. Replace the lift position sensor (potentiometer) or lift motor if the lift position sensor (potentiometer) is internal to the lift motor.
  3. If the lift moves without any command entered either manually or through a program, replace the lower PCA.

Machine is showing error 30 how do I fix that


Precor Error 30, 31, 32 and 33, Communications Error Probable Cause 1. Bad interconnect cable between upper PCA and lower PCA.
2. Interconnect cable is mistakenly plugged into the CSAFE connector at the upper PCA.
3. Elliptical 5.17 equipped with old software version 1.01 in upper and lower PCA.
4. Upper and lower PCAs have mismatched software.
5. Another component plugged onto the PCA is overloading the +5VDC power supply.
6. Bad lower PCA.
7. Bad upper PCA.
Corrective Action
  1. Test unit with a know good interconnect cable or test the interconnect cable for continuity. Replace interconnect cable if necessary.
  2. Disconnect the interconnect cable from the CSAFE connector and attach to the proper position on the upper PCA.3.
  3. Replace the upper and lower software of the 5.17 elliptical with the most current versions.4.
  4. If one of the PCAs is found to have software version 1.01, replace it with the most current software version.
  5. Disconnect all components from the upper and lower PCA leaving the data cable connecting between the upper and lower PCAs and the AC power going to the lower PCA. If the unit shows any error other than the error 3x, reconnect components one at a time. Reset power between each newly connected component until the error 3x reappears. Whichever component was last connected when the error 3x reappears, is the cause for the error. Replace the faulty component.
  6. Test unit with a known good lower PCA. Replace the lower PCA if necessary.
  7. Test unit with a known good upper PCA. Replace the upper PCA if necessary.

On switch flicks off when electricity turned on


The switch is also a circuit breaker it tells me that their is a good chance your Motor Control Board is shorted and will need to replaced or can be rebuilt. Call National Gym Supply @ 800-496-7278 and ask for pricing for new or repair.
