SOURCE: c956 precor treadmill

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: display functions on right side don't work as

Hi drnelson3,

This problem is as a result of a bad control panel. The control panel controls all the functions of the unit it accepts commands and executes them. Often times it would accept a command but not execute as a result of malfunctions on the control board. This is why a times it comes on and doesn't function. The control board is not totally bad but suffers from partial failure therefore the problems.
Best solution is to get the control board replaced this can be done by any service repair personnel or simply contact the nearest dealer for a repair person.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Watch this video and Step:

Ensure that the treadmill is plugged into a grounded outlet using the correct surge suppressor. Use a UL 1449 suppressor listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). It must be rated for 15 amps and 120 volts AC. Secure the services of an electrician if the outlet is not grounded, or move the Proform treadmill near a grounded outlet. Do not use an extension cord.

    • 2

Insert the safety key fully into the display. Treadmills with keys are designed not to turn on without the safety key in place.

    • 3

Find the circuit breaker on the front of the frame and make sure it is not tripped. The circuit breaker is a vertical switch on the 540S and a horizontal switch on the 540 Interactive Trainer. Press it to the "Reset" position, which will be labeled.
2. Reed Switch

o 1

Unplug the treadmill and remove the safety key.

o 2

Move the upright base of the treadmill down with the help of another person and lift the uprights so that you can get to the underside of the console. Use a Phillips screwdriver with at least a 5-inch shaft to remove the screws. There are five hood screws on the 540 Interactive trainer and four screws on the 540S.

o 3

Remove the motor hood to get to the small reed switch by pivoting the hood off the frame. Find the reed switch and magnet, which are on the left side of the pulley for both models.

o 4

Turn the pulley with your hand until the reed switch aligns with the magnet. There should be 1/8-inch gap between the two. Fix the distance so that it is 1/8 inch by loosening the reed switch screw and sliding it to the correct distance. Tighten the screw.

o 5
Reverse the directions to put the hood back on and the treadmill upright in the original position

Chech: Optical Sensor if have it.

Precor gfx 9.33i displays "stuck key"


Precor Error 05, Key Depressed at Power Up
Probable Cause 1. A key is permanently depressed on the display.
2. An interface chip (IC) has failed in the upper PCA's keypad.
3. Liquid (cleaning solution or sweat) may be on the surface of a touch sensitive display.

Corrective Action
  1. Disconnect the keypad cable from the upper PCA. Reset power to the machine. If the Error 05 is eliminated, the keypad is the cause and should be replaced.
  2. Disconnect the keypad cable from the upper PCA. Reset power to the machine. 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.

PRECOR C956 power switch wont stay on


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, 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.

After power failure my GW712 wont work, the lights come on but the start up beeps don't sound and the touch pad don't do anything, also there is a whirring sound coming from the control panel.


Hi - that sounds nasty - its possible the display or the control module has failed as a result of the power failure.

I suggest the motor control module be the 1st unit to be replaced, don't think you can get around this one.

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.
