Question about Precor 956 Remanufactured Treadmill
Can you help me figure out why my treadmill is not powering on? The plug is working. There is a small red light on the circuit board that is lit. No lights or response on the control panel. Don't see any fuses.

Unplug unit remove motor shroud take a look at incline motor frame assembly, by the sound of it maybe metal fatigue failure disengaging the incline motor itself and could have damage it. This would be my best guess if so contact Precor.

Most treadmills will do this if you are plugging it into a GFI outlet. Check to see what type of outlet you have it plugged into.

Power issues with treadmills fit into two categories: the power does not turn on or the power shuts off when using the treadmill. If the power will not turn on, make sure that the treadmill is plugged into a working power outlet. In addition, you should use a single-outlet surge protector for the treadmill. Single-outlet surge protectors protect the machine from any voltage changes that may occur in your home.
If the machine is plugged into a working outlet, make sure the safety key is in the keyhole on the console. If the safety key is not plugged into the machine or if it is pulled out during operation, the treadmill will not operate.
Finally, make sure the circuit breaker located on the frame near the power cord is set to "Reset." The circuit breaker is set to "Reset" if the top of the button is pushed in. When the breaker is tripped, push it back to the "Reset" position and wait five minutes before powering on the treadmill.
If the treadmill shuts off during operation, check the power cord and circuit breaker as described above. You can also try removing and reinserting the safety key.

First of all, here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER"S MANUAL for a similar model (9.31):
To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.
You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.

If your treadmill is similar enough to the one in the manual, then there are multiple safety features incorporated into the machine. See page 9 and 10 of the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for detailed instructions on their operation.
Acccording to the manual, TO RESUME RUNNING after the safety switch trips do the following:
Reattach the magnetic safety key to the display console.
Straddle the running belt.
Press QUICKSTART or the SPEED UP ARROW.
If required, enter the SAFETY CODE (which is 1234 unless previously changed by owner).
The belt should begin moving slowly again, so just step back on carefully while holding handles.
See page 50 of the Online User's Manual for more details about the SAFETY CODE to unlock the belt. As stated, the default Safety Code from the factory is 1 2 3 4.
