Question about Precor EFX 546i Elliptical Version 4

1 Answer

576i resistance not increasing precor

When I start a workout I cannot increase the resistance. The display remains at 1 and the resistance does not change. Sometimes after 3 minutes I can increase the resitance but only slowly and unpredictably. If I get the resistance increased then I can reduce it with no problem.

If the display stays at 1, then the UP button may be at fault, in which case you would need a new keypad.

SOURCE: the resistance on my Precor elliptical 5.17 will

There is a small motor under the shroud that operates the resistance motor. It is about the size of a roll of half dollars. Have someone use a meter and check that you are getting power to this. When you turn on the machine the motor should move the resistance forward then back. You can hear this everytime you turn it on.
