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.

SOURCE: How do I replace the

You may have to purchase the belt from a Precor dealer in you area, if you don't have one then call Precor directly @ 1-800-347-4404 and they will help you. Most of these part have not hit the secondary market yet and Precor pretty much call the shots on whom the sell parts and support to.
There is a place on line to get some of these, it is.
The manual can be found at.
This place has manuals and user manulas along with support and some I believe this unit has a 10 yr warranty with it and the part in question may be covered by them. There is also a 1 year part warrant for other parts, I just don't know what parts they are covering for the 10 yr.

How do i change the battery on a precor efx 5461

Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH Warning Notice for Battery Installation of certain Precor Ellipticals This notice provides details about the battery replacement procedure that should be considered by anyone performing this repair. Following is the warning about the battery installation for certain models of the Precor ellipticals.

Precor Elliptical Models Affected:

  • EFX C524 with serial#s beginning I7, K7, LH, SW, SX
  • EFX C546 with serial#s beginning NF,SZ, IK, IL, IU
  • EFX C546I with serial#s beginning X8, XG, Z2
  • EFX C556 with serial#s beginning NG, SY
When replacing the battery on your Precor elliptical it is important to make sure that the battery terminals are not allowed to make contact with the metal surface of the battery bracket. **Damage to the battery will occur**.
Electrical tape can be wrapped around the battery terminals to prevent them from making contact with the metal surface of the battery bracket.
Battery replacement on the EFX C524, EFX C546, EFX C546i and EFX C556 instructs you to remove the (4) screws that fasten the battery bracket to the frame. This allows you to turn the lower PCA and battery assembly away from the frame so you can slide the battery out of the battery bracket. It may be necessary to remove the nut that fastens the front retaining bracket or "L" bracket in order to slide the battery out of the battery bracket.

Precor Elliptical EFX 5.23. Getting grinding noise on both forward and backward strides. It appears the aluminum eddy current disk is rubbing intermittently on the electromagnet. All the bolts seem tight...

There may be a wave washer on the crankshaft that broke - when it breaks, there is too much left to right play in the shaft, so the disk will intermittently rub. Taking it all apart and replacing the washer is tricky - hire a pro.

There is a loud noise coming from the rear spin wheel area of the elliptical 576i. I cleaned the entire thing and lubed all moving parts and it still grinding. Could this be a bearing issue?

It could be a bearing or the belts - if it sounds like a jet, look at the generator. I do not believe there is anything that can be lubed. Usually it just makes a mess.

My elliptical makes a grinding noise when revolving

Inspect the ramp that the wheels travel on. If its pocked up or worn then it will cause the unit to feel like its grinding when in use.
