Important: A heart rate can only be detected when the Precor heart rate receiver is properly inst alled in the display. A user must wear the chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive grips. Table 2. Erratic heart rate readings What appears on the display Cause What to do Nothing The heart rate receiver is not installed or it has been disconnected. Call Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service . HR or Hr A signal is being detected through the chest strap or the touch-sensitive grips, but a valid heart rate is not yet established. Be sure that the chest strap is moist, centered, and in direct contact with your skin. If you are using the touch-sensitive grips, continue to grasp both of them. Wait a few moments for your heart rate to appear. Note: To conduct electrical impulses from a user’s heart, both touch-sensitive grips must be grasped firmly for five to ten seconds. Usually, the concentration of salt s in a person’s perspiration provides enough conductivity to tran smit a signal to the receiver in the display console. However, be cause of body chemistry or erratic heartbeats, some people cannot us e the touch-sensitive grips. A chest strap may provide better results.
22. Maintenance It is important to perform the minor maintenance tasks described below. Failure to maintain the equipment as described in this section could void the Pr ecor Limited Warranty. DANGER To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always unplug the equipment from its power source (an optional power adapter in the case of self-powered equipment) before cleaning it or performing any maintenance tasks. Daily Inspection Look and listen for slipping belts, loose fasteners, unusual noises, worn or frayed power cords, an d any other indications that the equipment may be in need of serv ice. If you notice any of these, obtain service. Important: If you determine that the equipment needs service, disconnect any power connections and move the equipment away from the exercising area. Place an OUT OF SERVICE sign on it and make sure all patrons and user s know that they must not use the equipment. To order parts or to contact a Preco r authorized service provider in your area, refer to Obtaining Service . Daily Cleaning Precor recommends the equipment be cleane d before and after each exercise session. Use mild soap and water to dampen a clean, soft cloth and wipe all exp osed surfaces. This helps remove dust and dirt. CAUTION: Do not use any acidic cleaners. Doing so will weaken the paint or powder coatings and void the Precor Limited Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids on any part of the equipment. Allow the equipment to dry completely before using. Frequently vacuum the fl oor underneath the eq uipment to prevent the accumulation of dust and d irt, which can affect the smooth operation of the equipment.
