Important Safety Guidelines for Owners
Follow these guidelines to maintain proper working condition of the
equipment:
• Regular maintenance must be performed by qualified technicians.
• Place an “out-of-order” sign on the equipment during maintenance of the
equipment or the surrounding area. Users should never be allowed to
operate the equipment until it has been inspected and works properly. If a
piece of equipment needs service, keep it out of use until repaired. Place
an “out-of-order” sign on the equipment and make sure the facility’s
personnel know not to allow anyone to use the equipment until it is
working properly.
• Make sure that trainers, facility personnel, and maintenance technicians
understand how to use the equipment, know important safety guidelines,
and can recognize potential problems such as a worn cable or cracked
weld.
• When working with the weight stacks, do not attempt to free any jammed
assemblies alone as this may cause injury. With the help of another
person, carefully return the weight stack to the proper position with the
top plate resting on the first weight.
• Strength training requires a significant focus by the facility and its staff to
maintain the quality of the fitness environment. The facility should provide
direct supervision of the fitness equipment at all times by people
knowledgeable about the safe operation of the equipment and trained to
recognize potential problems.
• Do not allow the equipment to be used if the top plate or weight stack is
pinned in a raised position. With the help of another person, carefully
return the machine to the proper position with the top plate resting on the
first weight. Inspect the cable to make sure that it is seated in all of the
pulleys.
• If any facility personnel witness unsafe use of the equipment, the staff
member should address the user directly, demonstrate the proper
technique, and review the Important Safety Information for Users. Precor
recommends posting a copy of the Important Safety Information for Users
• Whenever a weight can drop and hit a user, such as with an Olympic
bench, Precor highly recommends that a helper or spotter be used.
Important: Do not modify the equipment or any of its parts, or permanently
remove any part from the equipment. Do not use accessory attachments that are
not recommended by Precor, as such attachments might cause injuries.
• Do not place the equipment outdoors or on wet surfaces.
near the equipment in a prominent location.
• Make sure the equipment is stable and placed on a solid, level surface. The
equipment is designed to be freestanding; however, equipment can be
bolted to the floor for extra stability. Consult a qualified general contractor
for proper fastening methods.
• Make sure that the equipment is installed with enough free space for safe
operation. With most equipment, the general rule is to allow about a 4-foot
(1.2 meters) circle of space from the user’s center. For Functional Training
equipment, make sure that the operating space is large enough to allow
the cables to be fully extended in all possible directions.
Safety Approval
Certain Precor commercial strength equipment is Class S/B, C certified
according to EN957 –1/2 standards. See an authorized Precor dealer for a
complete and current listing of certified machines.

maintaining:
• Condition and deep clean upholstery.
• Clean and lubricate cable rod ends.
• Clean and lubricate guide rods.
Clean and Lubricate Cable Rod Ends
Check cable rod ends to make sure the shoulder bolts are secure. If cable
rod ends are noisy, lubricate them with a silicone spray lubricant. Spray the
lubricant onto the joint where the spherical portion is enclosed in the outer
housing, as shown in the following figure. Wipe off any excess lubricant with
a cloth.
• Inspect cables, connections, and tension.
• Inspect cable handle attachments.
• Inspect pulleys.
• Inspect each weight stack and selector pin.
• Inspect and lubricate bearings and bushings.
• Check seat adjustment and test pop pins.
Figure 7: Lubricate cable rod ends with silicone spray lubricant
Condition and Deep Clean Upholstery
Important: Do not use petroleum-based lubricants.
Condition and deep clean the upholstery weekly with a lanolin-based hand
cleaner or upholstery cleaner.
Important: To clean the upholstery, do not use cleaning products that have any of
these ingredients: solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or petroleum. Use a mild
detergent-based cleaner instead.
Experience Strength™ C-Line Owner’s Manual: Weekly Inspection
11
Clean and Lubricate Guide Rods
Inspect Cables, Connections, and Tension
Inspect the exposed areas of the guide rods for cleanliness. Using a dry cloth,
wipe any buildup of dirt or grease from the rods.
Each week, give the cables and connections a thorough inspection and check
cable tensions. The following lists the specific things you need to inspect:
Note: On the Experience Line of strength equipment, the upper rear shroud
must be removed to access the guide rods for inspection, cleaning, and
lubricating (refer to Shroud Removal).
Lubricate the exposed areas of the guide rods by applying a light coat of
silicone spray lubricant. Spray the lubricant on a cloth, then wipe the guide
rods with the cloth. Be careful with any lubricant spray; it can stain carpet
• Check the cable termination at the weight stack. For most equipment, the
exposed shank can be no more than 1¼ inches (32mm); this distance
allows for a minimum of 10 turns of the bolt into the selector stem (refer to
Inspect Cables and End Connections, earlier). Check and adjust the
distance accordingly. Also make sure that the locking jam nut is tight
against the selector stem.
and clothing.
• Check the cable, especially near all pulley wheels and cams.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to lubricate the guide rods when the equipment is
in use. Attempting to lubricate between the weight plates without completely
disassembling the stack will result in serious injury.
• Check the cable as it terminates at the cam, which is stationary on most
equipment. Inspect the bolt passing through the cam end fitting to be sure
the two jam nuts are tightened against each other. Also, check the entire
cable routing to verify that there is no interference with any structure.
Important: Do not use petroleum-based lubricants. These lubricants tend to
cause a rapid buildup of dirt and hair on the weight plates, which can cause the
plates to stick together.
• Inspect the ball end of the cable where the cable connection rests in the
clevis housing.
• Make sure that each cable is properly adjusted and tightened at the top of
the weight stack.
• Check cable pulleys, end connections, and end fittings. Make sure all
connections are tight, adjusting cable tension as necessary.
Experience Strength™ C-Line Owner’s Manual: Weekly Inspection
12
Inspect Pulleys
Precor uses precision ball bearing idler pulleys to guide the cable smoothly.
Inspect and Lubricate Bearings and
Bushings
Inspect each pulley for damage, including hairline cracks, chips, or missing
sections. Worn surfaces in the pulleys can cause severe damage to the
cables and must be replaced at the first sign of wear or damage.
Precor uses high quality bearings designed for strength applications and
long service life. Each week, do the following to maintain the bearings and
bushings on the equipment:
Be certain that the wheels turn freely as the equipment is used. Inspect each
pulley for excessive side-to-side play, which indicates worn bearings or loose
mounting bolts. If excessive play is discovered, remove the pulley to inspect
the bearings and replace the entire pulley if necessary.
• Bronze bushings: Precor recommends using a small amount of silicone
spray lubricant to lubricate these bushings, which usually support rotary
shafts. Spray directly onto the shaft, and then rotate the shaft through its
complete range of motion several times. Inspect bushings for excessive
wear and damage. Be careful when using the spray lubricant; it can stain
carpet and clothing. Wipe off any excess lubricant with a cloth.
Inspect Weight Stack and Selector Pin
Weight stacks are made of precision machined plates that are designed as a
single mechanism to stack precisely. Use only Precor-supplied add-on
weights and weight selector pins.
On a weekly basis, inspect weight stacks and selector pins. Wipe each plate
with a damp cloth as needed. Inspect all plates for sharp burrs or damage.
Wipe dirt and dust off the guide rods.
Make sure the equipment uses only the original Precor selector pin. In
addition, make sure the selector pin can be fully inserted and retained in
each weight plate.
Experience Strength™ C-Line Owner’s Manual: Weekly Inspection
• Nylon bushings: Lubricate the nylon bushings on the guide rods by
applying a light coat of silicone spray lubricant. Spray the silicone
lubricant on a cloth, then wipe the cloth along the full length of the guide
rod.
• Sealed Bearing Pivot Points: These locations are protected from the
outside environment and require no lubrication. While cleaning the
equipment, wipe down the shafts and external bearing surfaces with a
cloth to prevent the buildup of dust and perspiration.
13
• Linear Bearings: These bearings allow weight plates and other
mechanical parts to travel smoothly along guide rods. (Refer to the
following figure.) Inspect the ends of each guide rod to make sure they are
fastened correctly and all bolts are tight.
Wipe down guide rods using a light application of a silicone spray lubricant to
remove dust, hair, and dirt. Polish the guide rods using fine grade steel wool if
surface rust is present.
Important: Do not use petroleum-based lubricants.
Check and Lubricate Seat Adjustment
The seat adjustment mechanism requires little maintenance. However,
because seat safety is important to the safety of a workout, you should check
the ratcheting seat lever regularly to see if it sticks when used.
To test if the seat lever needs lubrication, elevate the seat slightly while
pressing and releasing the lever. The lever should snap back out easily. If the
lever sticks, lubricate its pivot pin with silicone spray lubricant. Wipe off any
excess lubricant with a cloth.
If you lubricate the guide rods regularly, then the bearings will function as
designed. Otherwise, the guide rods may corrode. This can cause the bearings
to become clogged and jammed, leading to actual gouging of the guide rods.
Be sure to remove surface rust and oxidation from the guide rods as soon as
you observe it.

Monthly Inspection
This section covers the tasks you should perform each month to maintain the
equipment. Perform the following tasks as appropriate for the unit you are
maintaining:
To remove surface rust from the frame, rub lightly with a fine wet/dry
sandpaper or fine steel wool. Finish with Precor touch-up paint if needed.
Maintain paint luster with an application of a mild automotive wax product.
• Inspect frames and movement arms.
To maintain the powder coated and chrome parts, use a mild detergentbased cleaner for light dirt and grime removal. For removing heavier dirt and
grease and for polishing, use a good automotive polish. For scuffs and marks
that are not removed by the above methods, use a soft scrub cleanser. Do not
use solvents, lacquer thinner, acetone, or fingernail polish remover.
• Lubricate pop pins.
• Check and lubricate ratcheting seat lever.
• Inspect all fasteners.
• Inspect gas shocks for leaks.
Inspect Frames and Movement Arms
Inspect frames and movement arms monthly for proper function and
integrity. Check for cracks, chipped paint, or rust. Touch up dings and chips
in the paint as needed. Replace any component at first signs of wear.
Note: You can order touch-up paint from Precor by calling Customer
Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
Inspect frames for cracks, particularly at the joints. If any cracks are found,
take the equipment out of service immediately and have a qualified
maintenance technician repair it. Refer to Important Safety Guidelines for
Owners and Obtaining Service.
Experience Strength™ C-Line Owner’s Manual: Monthly Inspection
15
Lubricate Pop Pins
Inspect All Fasteners
Pull out the pop pin as far as it goes and apply a small amount of silicone
spray lubricant. Wipe off any excess lubricant with a cloth. (Refer to the
following figure.)
Fasteners can loosen with normal use. Inspect all nuts, bolts, screws, and
other fasteners to make sure they are tight and installed correctly.
CAUTION: Pulling out the pop pin may cause the unit to adjust position
suddenly. To avoid injury, keep your hands and head away from moving parts.
Test the pop pin for proper function and engagement in each adjustment
hole.
Be sure to check fasteners at bolted joints to make sure the connections are
secure. If a fastener is loose but in good condition, retighten it. If you are
concerned about the integrity of the fastener, remove it, clean the threads,
and inspect it for any damage such as cracks, bad threads, corrosion, or rust.
Reinstall the fastener if it appears to be in good condition. Otherwise, remove
the equipment from service until a new fastener can be installed properly.
You can order new fasteners from Customer Support. For additional
information, refer to Obtaining Service.
