Resist motor error on true elliptical - how to fix?

I will disconnect the power source and the machine will recycle allowing me to again use. After several minutes, the resist motor error will again appear in the window of control panel and unable to see heart rate, minutes and calories burned. Do I need to replace the control panel?

SOURCE: Garmin Forerunner 305 miscalculating ascent and calories

Firstly, the ascent and descent are only approximate, and can be very approximate! This is because it's using GPS to calculate your height above sea level when GPS is really only accurate for position Lat and Long. When calculating height, a very, very small error can lead to a large variation in actual height. You should never use a GPS for height if needed for navigation (ie climbing walking etc) If you need accuaracy you will need to get a barometric altimeter.v

As for calories, I think you have identified your problem, it's calculating calories on running not cycling. Not sure what the answer is as I don't know what software you are using but if you are using Garmin TC, bin it and use SportTracks. Takes a bit of getting used to but to really get the best out of your 305 this is excellent software and it's free. Any anomolies like your calorie issue/wrong category import can be changed manually plus a whole host of other stuff. Garmin doesn't even let you edit activities - crazy.

You certainly have had good service out of the battery. It is best left to a watch repairer to replace the battery.

Sole elliptical display first said Level Err and now says Motor Error. What can I do to fix this?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Check power problems if the console on the elliptical machine does not light up. Make sure that the plug for the machine is secure in the outlet. If it is plugged in, ensure that the outlet is receiving power. Check the breaker to make sure it has not tripped off.
Be sure that you are using the correct adapter that came with the elliptical machine. Because different adapters are able to handle differing amounts of energy, the wrong adapter will not transfer electricity like it should. If the adapter is pinched or damaged, this could also alter its effectiveness.

Make sure the correct adapter is being used if the resistance settings seem to be too hard or too easy. If the correct adapter is being used, reset the machine. To reset the machine, either switch the "On/Off" button or unplug the machine from the wall. Doing this will allow the device to reset itself to the default resistance. Turn on or plug the device back into the wall and retry all of the levels of resistance.

Do not be concerned if you see small particles left on the guide rails. Over time, the roller wheels gradually wear down. When this occurs, they leave residue on the rails. Because this is considered to be normal wear, all you need to do to fix the problem is wipe the rails off with a damp cloth.

Minimize the risk of receiving erratic readouts on the monitors by avoiding outside interference. For example, gripping the heart rate handlebars too tightly can affect the monitor. Similarly, the heart rate grips can be rendered less effective when there is too much vibration. Consider not holding these monitors throughout the workout to minimize vibration. The readouts also can be affected by jewelry. To minimize errors, take off rings and other jewelry before working out on an elliptical machine.

    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.

    How do I fix my crosstrainer, magnetic resistance has stopped working


    This happened to me and I took the wheel mechanism cover off to discover the tension motor cable had come out of it's pulley guide- so there wasn't enough tension left in the cable to pull it away from the wheel- quite an easy fix for me- hope it is the snake for you!

    Resistance level does not change anymore. What is


    I fixed a problem with my Schwinn Elliptical 430 resistance level not working. When I would change the level anywhere from 1-16, I could hear the motor turning, but there was no change in resistance. If you hear the motor moving, then try this:

    Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove all the screws on the left side of the large plastic cover (left side if you are standing on the machine). When all screws are removed, you can pull the plastic cover off, and move it towards the back of the machine without having to disconnect any of the metal bars. (The bottom two screws are a little tricky to get off. Hold the housing in place, don't let it sag, in order to get them out.

    Look inside the unit and find the magnet, which is a rounded, brake-show like piece that is close to the flywheel, on the top half of the unit. There's a cable from the motor that goes upward and is attached to the magnet housing.

    If you try to adjust the resistance level now, you should see cable move up. This is supposed to allow the magnet to move closer to the flywheel and increase resistance. In my case, the magnet was stuck and wouldn't move upwards. When I gave the magnet a little push with a screwdriver, it popped up to where it should be.

    To solve this issue, you will need two wrenches. You must go to the opposite end of the magnet, towards the front of the machine, and you will see it's connected with a nut & bolt. Using a couple wrenches, hold the bolt, and loosen the nut about 1/4 turn.

    This should lessen the pressure on the magnet housing and allow it to move freely and not bind. Reassemble everything. Lie the elliptical down on it's side to allow the screws to fall into the holes easier.

    Once it's all back together, you should find that the resistance level works again!
