Precor C100

Software Access Codes
The C100i uses the standard access codes to provide access to the various software features.
Use the RESET key and the numeric keypad to enter the access code. The access code must be entered when the Precor banner is scrolling on the display. The standard access codes use all sequential key presses. The allowable delay between key presses is short. If too much time is taken between key presses the access procedure will be aborted and the display will return to the idle state with the Precor banner displayed. If the access is aborted, it will be necessary to start over from the beginning.
Standard Access Codes
Diagnostics Keys ------ RESET,5,1,7,6,5,7,6,1
Odometer Keys -------- RESET,6,5
Club Settings Keys----- RESET,5,6,5,1,5,6,5

Measuring the Resistance of a Generator
Caution
If a external power supply is connected to the C100i, disconnect the external power supply from
the C100i before continuing with this procedure.
Procedure
1. Remove the right side cover
2. Remove the red battery wire from the lower PCA.
WARNING
Before continuing with this procedure, review the Warning and Caution statements listed in Section One, Things You Should Know.
3. Set the ohmmeter to a range that will conveniently read up to 50 ohms.
4. Remove the two wires from the LOAD terminals of the lower PCA.
5. With an ohmmeter, read between the wires removed in step 5. The reading should be approximately 10 ohms[1]Replace the two wires removed in step 5.
6. Remove the three wires from the 3 PHASE GEN IN terminals of the lower PCA.
7. With an ohmmeter, read between the red & white, red & black and white & black wires. Each reading should be approximately 25ohms Reconnect the wires removed in step 7
8. If any of the readings are significantly high or significantly low, remove the intermediate cable from the generator and perform the same measurements as in step 4 on the generator connector. If the reading are now correct check and or replace the intermediate cable. If the readings are still incorrect, remove the three phase generator.
9. Reconnect the red battery wire
10. Replace the right side cover.
Maintenance
After Each Use
Wipe down the covers, handlebars and stairarms with a damp cloth.
Daily Maintenance
Clean the C100i’s frame, covers, stairarms and foot pedals using water or a 30:1 solution of Simple Green and water. Wipe the surface of the electronic console with a damp sponge or soft cloth. Dry with a clean towel. A 30:1 solution of Simple Green  and water or Contec Athletix wipes are the only cleaning products that have been tested and approved for use on the C100i. The use of an acid (citric) based cleaner is not authorized by Precor.
Weekly Maintenance
Vacuum underneath the C100i, following these steps:
1. Unplug the optional external power supply (when equipped) from the AC outlet
2. Remove the platform at the rear of the C100i.
3. Carefully lift the rear of the C100i and move it to a temporary location.
4. Vacuum the rug or damp mop the floor.
5. Make sure that the floor is dry before returning the C100i to its original position and replacing the platform.
# Re-level the C1100i to ensure that all five “feet” are in contact with the floor.
# Thoroughly test all C100i per Section Four, including heart rate.
# Cardio Theater cord management must be observed.
Quarterly Maintenance
1. Remove the side covers
2. Check the belt alignment and tension
3. Clean the inside of the C100i.
4. Inspect fasteners for proper tightness and torque.
5. Check for excessive noise during vertical and horizontal operation.
6. Replace the side covers.
7. Re-level the C100i to ensure that all five “feet” are in contact with the floor.
Preventive Maintenance Service
Perform the software diagnostics. Check LED and keypad function. Record the odometer
reading.
# Check stride rate and stride length sensor function (is the stride rate and stride length displayed when the unit is in operation?).
# Visually inspect the drive belts for cracks, fraying or excessive wear.
# When furnished, inspect the optional power supply cords. If a power supply cord(s) is damaged, install a new power supply.
# Visually examine all wires and check connectors and wire connections. Secure connections and replace wiring as necessary.
# Cardio Theater cord management must be observed
