When a running belt has excessive wear, it creates a lot of friction which causes the drive motor to work harder. When the drive motor works harder it will start overheating. If the belt is not lubricated periodically, it will ruin the deck, the drive motor, and cause other electrical problems such as tripping the breaker [after a while, the circuit breaker on the treadmill will need to be replaced.
It is suggested to lubricate the belt every month. At this point, you may need to replace both your deck and your running belt.
The following link will take you to our tech support page that contains some tips and videos on how to maintain your treadmill:

SOURCE: My Precor 9.21 si Treadmill shuts down upon

Hey Doug,

Just wondering has this unit ever had the running deck flipped over if not this may be sighs of worn deck or belt or both! What is starting to happen is that at the higher speed the unit is starting to draw more current, so the motrol control board will sense this and will shut down so it won't damage either the motor or board. What starts as an occassional shut down will progressively become more frequent. Simple test is put your hand palm down between the belt and deck,if you feel uneven ridges then the deck needs to be flipped over and when you pull out your hand out and their is a black sooty film on the back of it ,then that seals it this means that the composite material is being shaved off. Most likely the belt will have a smooth glazed feeling in the middle part of it. and well also need replacing.

SOURCE: Same problem

I would suggest that you reattach the two wire that their because the unit is pull too much current and that safety feature is to protect both motor and lower board from damage. If you have not been instructed by your local dealer about preventative maintenance Most Precor running are double sided, which means both surfaces are usable and are coated with wax. The easiest way without dismantling your unit is to follow this procedure:
You may purchase this wax product @ http://www.gympart.com/ or call them 1-800-496-7278 I would recommend what is call WAX BLAST they come in 3oz or 6oz bottles.
Now the fun part to apply this product you must first get the treadmill and walk on it for about 5min to heat up the deck, then stop the unit with your product go to upper third of the belt lift edge of the belt stick the nozzle between the belt and deck squeeze the bottle approx. amount 1 tbs of wax to the center then get back on the treadmill and walk for 10 min this is to heat up the wax so that belt will act like a wick to absorb wax! This should be done every 3 months or so. Their a catch if this does fix the problem you may be investing in a new belt and possible and new deck. Hope this take of it!!

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.

The incline on our Precor c964i is stuck in a high position (approx. 10% incline). Other than being on a high incline, the treadmill seems to be working fine.


Hi There,

Precor uses a pair of Triacs to drive the lift up and down. These triacs live on the lower board but are driven by the upper console commands via a serial link between the upper and lower. Most precor lift issues we see are related to the lower board but with Precor it could be an upper board or the CPU Chip that resides on the lower board or a failed Triac. Good Luck

Precore m9.43 treadmill error 22


Precor Error Code 22 Error Code: 22 Manufacturer: Precor
Model: All Models
Error Description: Error 22, No Motor Pulses at Start Up - Error indicates that the display has sent a command for the drive motor to start, however, the speed sensor has not returned the signal acknowledging that the drive motor has started. Possible Reason:
  1. The line of sight between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target is obstructed.
  2. Badly worn drive motor brushes.
  3. Incorrect gap between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target.
  4. Incorrect adjustment of the speed sensor potentiometer (when equipped).
  5. Inoperative speed sensor.
  6. Faulty lower PCA.
  7. Faulty interconnect cable between upper and lower PCA.
  8. Faulty upper PCA.
Recommended Action:
  1. Using a static safe vacuum cleaner, carefully vacuum out the drive motor compartment. Be sure to thoroughly clean the area between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target.
  2. Bady worn drive motor brushes cannot make proper contact with the motor commutator, therefore the drive motor will not start when voltage is applied. Inspect and replace drive motor brushes if necessary.
  3. Inspect the gap of the speed sensor to the speed sensor target. Proper gap is 3/16" and the speed sensor photo eye should be aimed at the larger portion of the targets wedge shaped section. If unit has a magnetic speed sensor, the gap between the end of the sensor and the flywheel tooth needs to be 3/16".
  4. Locate the speed sensor potentiometer (when equipped) on the lower PCA. Set the speed sensor potentiometer to mid-range. Start the treadmill and increase speed to 6 mph. Carefully adjust the speed sensor potentiometer until the treadmill is operating the smoothest. Increase the speed to full speed and again adjust the speed sensor potentiometer until the treadmill is operating the smoothest. These two adjustments are typically small and are generally only a matter of fine tuning.
  5. An inoperative speed sensor will allow the drive motor to start and run briefly before the error appears. If able to access the speed sensor wiring, measure the DC voltage between the speed sensor leads. Two of the leads will always read about 5 VDC. Two will toggle between 0 and 5 VDC as you slowly turn the speed sensor target. If both measurements are not seen, the speed sensor needs replaced. Some units have the speed sensor mounted on the lower PCA and the lower PCA needs replaced.
  6. Determine if the lower PCA is bad by swapping with a known good lower PCA.
  7. Determine if the interconnect cable is bad by swapping with a know good cable.
  8. Determine if the upper PCA is bad by swapping with a know good upper PCA.

Precor C966i The unit turns off at random intervals. When reset it comes back on then shuts off a few minutes later. Error log is empty so not an error with software.


LUBE or wax the deck belt, this happen because you do not lube or wax your equipmente according with the schedule maintenance, you must do it, every week. Do it now.use 100% silicone lube-
2) LUBE the rollers bearing too use WD-40 for rollers b only.
3) Test the drive belt motor, and adjust it or replace
4) test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair.see my personal TIPS for troubleshooting helps.
5) test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty. see the block diagram

What does the 15000 mile check up on the 2008 Hyundai Elantra cover?


A complete check-up of the car which should include but not be limited to:
  1. Change the oil (when was the last time you changed it?) Change the oil filter & the air filter (again, when were they changed last?)
  2. Check the coolant and brake fluid
  3. Check the brake pads - inspect all lights including turning signals (for safetys sake)
  4. Check the air pressure in the tires (including your spare tire) Check your car's alignment, this can cause uneven wear on your tires and it will believe it or not contribute to making the trip more exhausting.




Make sure you get a good rest the night/day before you depart. - if you begin to doze off dont hesitate to stop at a rest stop. Dont fight against your body, if you are tired, stop and take a 30 minute power nap, wash your face and drink a cup of coffee before you get back on the road.
Make sure you have a bottle of water in the car and plenty of good music to listen to. - Speed wise I suggest you dont travel at more than 10mph over the speed limit, traveling a little over (up to 10 mph) is tolerated by police, but I strongly sugest going 5 mph over the limit, set the cruise control and enjoy the trip without worrying about potential fines. If you do the math, the difference in time traveled is not so great:
speed limit = 70 mph (just as an example) 1300 miles @ 70 mph = 18 hours 36 minutes 1300 miles @ 75 mph = 17 hours and 20 minutes 1300 miles @ 80 mph = 16 hours 15 minutes the difference between traveling 75 or 80 is only 1 hours and 5 minutes. Not worth risking a fine for
