Question about Precor 905e 9.2 9.20 9.20s 9.1 9.2s Motor Hood Cover
It works fine, but then when i get up to speed, it turns off. i checked underneath, and a little on/off swithch was off. then, i flipped the switch to on, and it worked fine again, but then affter like a minute, it turned off again, the switch was set to off again. i tried taping the switch down to on, but it didnt work. got no idea what the problem is.
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.

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.

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.

Kindly provide few more details :-
1. If you run it at a lower speed, have you ever noticed an issue with the machine?
2. Is it an intermittent or eveytime you increase the speed to above 5 mph, it would stop?
Let me know,so that we could proceed.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
