Question about Life Fitness Treadmill Precor C954 (Used)

1 Answer

I have a reconditioned Precor C954. It has been sitting unused for at least two years. I plugged it in and the fan on the motor turns on, however the console does not light up. Perhaps a fuse issue?

The unit has not been used or even turned on for at least two months. It is in a garage where during the winter temperatures drop down below freezing.

You can start with checking the fuse, but I would also verify the correct voltage is making it to the lower board. Start at the wall outlet and follow the power through the cord and through the on/off circuit breaker. If you are getting power to the lower board and not to the console up top, it could be one of a few things. It could be the lower board, the wiring from the lower board going to the console, or the console itself. You will need a multimeter in order to do the proper troubleshooting. I will attach a link where you can view the service manual for your machine. There will also be a link to a video on using a multimeter.

I recently bought a used Precor 954i it worked fine then when i brought it home and wired it in with a 20amp breaker and 240 volt im getting error 29 as soon as i turn the machine on any ideas?


Precor Error 29, Excessive AC Input Current Probable Cause 1. The running belt and/or deck are badly worn.
2. Bad lower PCA.
3. Drive motor is shorted or de-magnetized causing a high power demand.
Corrective Action
  1. Check the amp draw using a clamp on AC volt-amp meter during loaded and no load conditions and compare values to a similar treadmill that is known to have a good running belt and deck. Replace the belt and/or deck if necessary. Don't forget, some units have a double sided deck which means it may be flipped over rather than replaced if it has an unused side.
  2. Test unit with a known good lower PCA. Replace lower PCA if necessary.
  3. Test unit with a known good drive motor. Replace drive motor if necessary.

Precor treadmill code e3 is on


Precor Error 03, Memory, RAM, EEPROM Test Error Probable Cause This error message almost always indicates an upper PCA problem when it is consistently displayed. Failures causing this error message to be displayed are rare.
Corrective Action If the error message is consistently displayed when the unit is powered up, the upper PCA should be replaced. It is possible to see this message displayed intermittently due to external causes. If the units A.C. input significantly dips during the power up test sequence the test could fail resulting in this message being displayed. Treadmills operating on non-dedicated A.C. circuits may see this message displayed on an intermittent basis. Precor Error Code 03 E03 EEPROM Test Error

What is error 28


Precor Error 28, Temperature Too High Probable Cause 1. The lower PCA cooling fan is clogged.
2. The lower PCA cooling fan is inoperative.
3. The running belt and/or deck are badly worn.
4. The lower PCA is bad.
5. Drive motor is shorted or de-magnetized causing a high power demand.
Corrective Action
  1. Inspect the fan mounted on the lower PCA for dust/debris buildup. Clean if necessary, ensuring the fan spins freely. Some lower PCA's do not have a cooling fan and others may have the fan mounted on the underside of the lower PCA making it not as visible.
  2. The fan was free of dust or debris but does not spin. Make sure that the fan wiring is secure and properly connected to the lower PCA. If no obstruction to the fan and the wiring is good but fan still doesn't turn, replace the lower PCA.
  3. Check the amp draw using a clamp on AC volt-amp meter during loaded and no load conditions; compare the values to a similar treadmill that is known to have a good running belt and deck. Replace the belt and/or deck if necessary. Don't forget, some units have a double sided deck which means it may be flipped over rather than replaced if it has an unused side.
  4. Test unit with a known good lower PCA. Replace lower PCA if necessary.
  5. Test unit with a known good drive motor. Replace drive motor if necessary.
