Does the lift work? If not, the battery is dead. Replace it.

SOURCE: precor efx 5.17 which intermittantly stops counting strides and freezes the display

please follow this steps:
Step 1

Remove the bolts or screws securing the console to the upright assembly. Lift the console and confirm that the cable connections are secure. Remove the cover from the console's battery bay and install a fresh set of batteries. Replace the battery cover.
Step 2

Detach the ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Remove the left and right disc shields and side shields. Inspect the interior of the base unit and locate the flywheel.
Step 3

Inspect the flywheel as it turns. Locate the magnet installed on the flywheel. Turn the flywheel until the magnet passes in front of the nearby reed switch. Loosen the screw securing the switch in place. Rotate the switch to reduce the gap between it and the magnet. Tighten the screw.

God bless you

SOURCE: precor efx 546 error.

please follow this steps and fix it. God bless youError 43 - Zero Switch not FoundDescriptionThe C944 and several versions of C96X used a lift position identification system that did notutilize a potentiometer.Instead, it utilized a switch that would be physically actuated by the lift when the lift was in thezero incline position. A revolution sensor counted lifted motor revolutions to determinesubsequent lift positions. In addition two limit switches where used to remove power from the liftmotor if the lift moved outside of it's normal range.When the unit was powered up the lift would start to hunt for the zero switch. It would first go up4% (maximum lowest physical position was -3%) if it did not find the zero switch or it hit the upperlimit switch, it would then go down until did find the zero switch. When the zero switch waslocated it would stop, the system would then know its physical position and be prepared tomonitor the revolution sensor. If during this power up procedure the zero switch was not found anerror 43 would be displayed.Possible Causes1. The lift position actuator does not physically operate the zero switch.2. The lower PCA is bad.3. The zero switch is bad.Possible Remedies1. There are several physical problems related to the lift platform mounting or the plate the zeroswitch is mounted on that can cause the actuator knob to miss the zero switch as it movespast. Repair the lift platform mounting, repair or replace the lift switch mounting plate asrequired.2. The lower PCA provides a 5 VDC power source for the zero switch. You should measure 5VDC across the zero switch when the zero switch is activated. If the reading is significantlylow, remove both wires from the zero switch and repeat the measurement across the wiresremoved from the zero switch. If the reading is still significantly low, verify the zero switchwiring. If the wiring is intact and correctly connected, replace the lower PCA.3. Move the lift to position where the zero is switch is not activated and remove power from thetreadmill. Remove both leads from the zero switch and measure the zero switch with anohmmeter. The zero switch should read very near 0 ohms. While measuring the zero switchwith the ohmmeter, activate the switch by hand, the reading should change to infinite (open).If either of the above readings are significantly incorrect, replace the zero switch.

Efx time out after 7 sec


My Precor Elliptical EFX 546 Timer Stops After 7 Seconds, what is wrong? The most common cause for the Timer to Stop After 7 Seconds on a Precor Elliptical is NO RPM Feedback.
Knowing the status of the unit from its last use as well as the last service or part replacement is a great place to start.
Check the connection of the speed sensor to the lower board. Reset connection if necessary.
Check the magnet. The magnet is located on the user's right crank arm on versions 1 and 2 and the user's left on version 3. The magnet passes the speed sensor with each revolution of the crank arm. The magnet should be installed so that its south pole is facing the speed sensor. You can check the magnet polarity with another magnet that has marked poles or a compass. The north pole of the marked magnet or the south facing needle should be attracted to the magnet. Correct magnet installtion if necessary.
You may also check the spacing of the speed sensor to the magnet. The spacing should be 1/8" to 1/4". Adjust if necessary.

Knocking/bumping sound while pedaling Precor 576i elliptical. It is coming primarily from the right side/pedal on the downward strike. What could be causing this?


It could be the input drive bearings going out. I would suggest removing the back side covers of the unit and inspecting the drive assembly when its in use. Watch for deviations in the the circular motion of the crank arms. If it moves side to side or drops in the rotation its time to have the input replaced.

Getting stuck key msg for my EFX 576i. I've unplugged the keyboard and plugged it back in but no help


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.

Error 45 on Precor EFX 546 Elliptical


Precor Error 45, Lift Moving in Wrong Direction Probable Cause 1. Lift motor hysteresis.
2. Lower PCA is bad.
Corrective Action 1. The error would usually occur when the lift was already in motion (usually downward) when a lift command in the opposite direction (upward) was made. Some lift motors used in production exhibited a very long turnaround time and the lift motor would still be moving in the original commanded direction while the control system was trying to move the lift in the opposite commanded direction. If the error continues to re-occur, replace the lift motor.
2. It is a rare condition, however if the lift moves in the opposite direction commanded, replace the lower PCA.
