Precor Error 61 or "Temporarily Out of Order, Auto Stop Not Present" (TRM Treadmills)

Probable Cause

1. Visually verify the Auto Stop hardware components are installed onto the treadmill frame 2. Check for 5VDC at the upper PCA or console 3. Check for 5VDC at the Auto Stop sensor 4. Visually inspect the Auto Stop sensor for physical damage

Corrective Action

  1. The Auto Stop feature was not on the TRM as a standard feature until 12/28/2010 but may have shipped with a P80 console prior to this date
    • If the Auto Stop hardware is not present, contact customer support
    • If hardware is present, check that the Auto Stop cable connectors are secure at the sensor and cable
  2. Disconnect the Auto Stop cable connector from the upper PCA or console and measure voltage from the console
    • If 5VDC is not present replace the upper PCA or console
    • If 5VDC is present, then continue troubleshooting the Auto Stop cable with the next step
  3. Disconnect the Auto Stop cable connector from the Auto Stop sensor, turn the treadmills power switch to ON and check for 5VDC between the red and black wire in the Auto Stop cable connector
    • If 5VDC is present at the Auto Stop cable connector of the console but not at the end of the cable, then replace the Auto Stop cable
  4. Replace if necessary
    • Access the diagnostic system tests and select the Auto Stop test
      • See Procedure 3.1 for P80 console, 5.1 for P30 console or 6.1 for P20 console for accessing the diagnostic software in the TRM service manual
    • If the feature is enabled the P80 Auto Stop sensor test will count the number of times the magnet crosses the sensor
    • The P30 and P20 consoles will display "User Detected" if motion is detected from the running deck or "No User Detected" if there has been no motion detected from the running deck
    • If the Auto Stop test in the P80 console did not count steps or if the P30 and P20 consoles displayed "No User Detected", then disconnect the Auto Stop cable from the Auto Stop sensor and check for 5VDC between the red and black wire
      • If 5VDC is present, replace the Auto Stop sensor
