When push quick start button, why does it display Erro 30 and doesn't run?


Hi There....This is a great message for ALL PRECOR 956/966 owners. This failure usually relates to a "communications" error between the upper and lower electronics. This particular failure is a direct result of a failed IFT drive module, or the lower drive "box" that is made by Advanced Drive Technology. The brains of this lower controller has failed and cannot "talk" to the upper board anymore due to several failed parts inside this box. You are lucky to have this failure arise over a fatal blow-out. Now replacements thru Precor or a distributor will be $550+ and are usually low stock items at places, but you can get repairs and exchanges of this Precor IFT drive by emailing gregATbuyfitnessrepairpartsDOTcom for much less than all other vendors. Currently these IFT drives are 380 exchange and 199 repair and turnaround is one day. Good Luck!

What is error 28


Precor Error 28, Temperature Too High Probable Cause 1. The lower PCA cooling fan is clogged.
2. The lower PCA cooling fan is inoperative.
3. The running belt and/or deck are badly worn.
4. The lower PCA is bad.
5. Drive motor is shorted or de-magnetized causing a high power demand.
Corrective Action
  1. Inspect the fan mounted on the lower PCA for dust/debris buildup. Clean if necessary, ensuring the fan spins freely. Some lower PCA's do not have a cooling fan and others may have the fan mounted on the underside of the lower PCA making it not as visible.
  2. The fan was free of dust or debris but does not spin. Make sure that the fan wiring is secure and properly connected to the lower PCA. If no obstruction to the fan and the wiring is good but fan still doesn't turn, replace the lower PCA.
  3. Check the amp draw using a clamp on AC volt-amp meter during loaded and no load conditions; compare the values to a similar treadmill that is known to have a good running belt and deck. Replace the belt and/or deck if necessary. Don't forget, some units have a double sided deck which means it may be flipped over rather than replaced if it has an unused side.
  4. Test unit with a known good lower PCA. Replace lower PCA if necessary.
  5. Test unit with a known good drive motor. Replace drive motor if necessary.

Precor error 15 input voltage


Precor Error 15, AC Input Voltage Too High Probable Cause 1. AC input voltage is incorrect.
2. AC input voltage transients. Transients can be caused by lightning strikes or by other pieces of equipment sharing the unit's AC power.
Corrective Action
  1. Verify AC feed into the building's circuit breaker is correct and connected to the proper transformer tap.
  2. Ensure the AC grounding for the unit's outlet is good and verify the unit is connected to an isolated and dedicated 20 amp circuit.

Precor error 12


Precor Error 12, Watchdog (Lower PCA) Probable Cause 1. A failure in the lower PCA overloads the low voltage power supply and causes it to drop below the preset level.
2. A fault in the interconnect cable (upper PCA to lower PCA) causing the low voltage power supply of the lower PCA to be too low.
3. A failure in the upper PCA that overloads the lower PCA low voltage power supply causing it to be too low.
Corrective Action
  1. If the error message is continually displayed when the unit is powered up, the upper PCA needs replaced.
    External causes may make the error appear intermittently.
    1. If the AC input of the unit dips significantly during power up test sequences, the test could fail causing the error to appear.
    2. A treadmill connected to a non-dedicated AC circuit can experience this error intermittently.
  2. Determine if the interconnect cable is the cause by substituting a know good cable in place of the current cable. For test purposes, the substitute cable needs to be connected directly between the upper and lower PCA's, without routing the cable internally.
  3. Determine if the upper PCA is the cause by substituting a know good upper PCA for the existing upper PCA.

EFX 5.25. Erro code 30. I had mice chew up the wiring between the two circuit boards. I have replaced the lower board and the wiring harness. Still shows error code 30


Precor Error 30, 31, 32 and 33, Communications Error Probable Cause 1. Bad interconnect cable between upper PCA and lower PCA.
2. Interconnect cable is mistakenly plugged into the CSAFE connector at the upper PCA.
3. Elliptical 5.17 equipped with old software version 1.01 in upper and lower PCA.
4. Upper and lower PCAs have mismatched software.
5. Another component plugged onto the PCA is overloading the +5VDC power supply.
6. Bad lower PCA.
7. Bad upper PCA.
Corrective Action
  1. Test unit with a know good interconnect cable or test the interconnect cable for continuity. Replace interconnect cable if necessary.
  2. Disconnect the interconnect cable from the CSAFE connector and attach to the proper position on the upper PCA.3.
  3. Replace the upper and lower software of the 5.17 elliptical with the most current versions.4.
  4. If one of the PCAs is found to have software version 1.01, replace it with the most current software version.
  5. Disconnect all components from the upper and lower PCA leaving the data cable connecting between the upper and lower PCAs and the AC power going to the lower PCA. If the unit shows any error other than the error 3x, reconnect components one at a time. Reset power between each newly connected component until the error 3x reappears. Whichever component was last connected when the error 3x reappears, is the cause for the error. Replace the faulty component.
  6. Test unit with a known good lower PCA. Replace the lower PCA if necessary.
  7. Test unit with a known good upper PCA. Replace the upper PCA if necessary.

Motor runs but when load is put on treadmill motor slows down substantially. Repairman tech said motor was bad. Took motor to two electric motor repair shops and they tested it (not under load) and stated...


Excessive wear on the deck and belt can cause high friction which then puts a heavier load on the motor. You may want to check the belt and deck for wear.

Error 30 shows when i press quick start??


Any 30 series error code means that their is no communication between upper and lower boards. The main Telco harness ( looks like a telephone or DSL wire) my have a bad or broken connection. Unplug unit and taken motor shroud off and check connections should be able to plug and unplug same goes with upper console. If this does not help then either call a local service provider or call Precor directly give them the Model# and Serial# for this unit. They should provide you with the additional info needed
Good Luck!!

The belt on my Precor C966i treadmill is not running and the display is flashing an "Error 22" message - what's the problem?


Error 22 means the drive motor is diconnected. you will hear the fan and other parts make noise but check the red and black anderson connection between the main circuit board and motor.
