Question about Precor EFX 546i Elliptical Version 4

1 Answer

I have an efx 546i and when I start pedaling it feels like the pedals are thumping as if the rollers are going over an uneven surface. There are a few divots in the metal that the rollers roll down.

Do you think it is the rollers or the landing ?

It could be a combination of the wheel and the ramp. We offer ramp sleeves to correct the surface issue. Precor Elliptical Ramp Sleeve Installation Video

SOURCE: My 546i is telling me to pedal fast after I hit

This problem maybe coming for n the generator it performs 3 function 1. controls electrical load / resistance to pedals 2. Charging system for the battery 3. Monitors unit when in use (stride) or when it is idle.
To test unit: Remove cover disconnect red battery lead. then use a multi-meter set function to ohms set range that can read 50 ohms. then disconnect generator lead from circuit board. M3=brown , M4= blue, M5= violet, with the meter read between Brown and blue, blue and violet , brown and violet, each of these read should be between 26 and 27 ohms. If any of the reading s are high or low replace generator

SOURCE: The ramp will not go up or down. It's states low

The ramp system has a battery monitoring system. If the battery voltage falls below 11 Vdc when the ramp movement is initiated or the battery voltage falls below 10 Vdc after ramp movement has been initiated, ramp movement will be stopped and gives that error message. The ramp will not be enabled until such time as the battery voltage exceeds the above limits. The battery voltage must be raised to be to correct this problem either by charging or replacing the battery.

How do I replace the battery on efx 546i


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.

Load resister is not working it is very hard to peddle


Procedure 6.4 - Troubleshooting the Generator
The generator performs three functions in the EFX. First, by controlling the amount of electrical
load applied to the generator, the user's pedalling resistance is controlled. Second, the generator
is used to charge the EFX's internal battery. Lastly, one of the generators six phase output
windings is monitored to determine when the unit is in use and when it is idle. This system also
determines the stride rate by determining the operating speed (output frequency) of the
monitored generator winding.
Warning
Because this is a self powered unit, it will either be necessary to either equip the unit with the
optional external power supply or have an assistant pedal on the unit while voltage
measurements are being taken. Because of the danger of working on the unit while it is in motion
using the optional external power supply is strongly recommended.
1. Perform the generator resistance test per Procedure 5.1. If any of the resistance
measurements are significantly high or significantly low, replace the generator.
2. The following voltage reading must be taken while the unit is in motion. Extreme care must
be taken to keep meter leads, hands, etc. clear of all moving parts. Using an AC voltmeter,
measure the voltage between 1 & 3, 2 & 3, 5 & 7 and 6 & 7 on J1 of the lower PCA. All AC
voltage readings will vary depending on the unit's stride rate at the time the measurement is
taken. At a stride rate of 100 strides per minute, all three voltage readings will be
approximately 100 VAC -110 VAC.
3. If any of the six readings in step 2 are significantly low, replace the generator.

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.

There is a clicking sound periodically coming from the right pedal while I use the machine (Precor 546i). I tried tightening the bolts but the clicking persists. Any thought would be greatly appreciated....


It sounds like it could be a faulty bearing in one of your wheels, a worn ramp or a combination of the two. The following link will take you to our Precor page. Please reference your model and serial number. This will allow you access to the correct parts and manuals for your machine.

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.
