```As Jens-Peer Kuska told you in another post of you, the problem is you
numbers of different precision.

The input form of the rep[1] is

{H -> 25.`2.3979400086720393*cm, L -> 250.`3.397940008672038*cm, A ->
25.`2.3979400086720393*cm^2,
SectionModulus -> 750.`3.8750612633917*cm^4, YoungsModulus ->
70.`1.8450980400142571*Giga*Pascal}

If you use exact numbers everything works fine.

Apply[(MakeBoxes[#1, _] = #2) & , {{SectionModulus, "I"},
{YoungsModulus, "E"}, {Meter, "m"}, {Newton, "N"}}, {1}];
\$Assumptions = (#1 > 0 & ) /@ {Newton, X, Meter, YoungsModulus,
SectionModulus};
\$UnitList = {{X, Meter}, {F, Newton}, {P, Newton}};
deUnitizeVariablesRep = Apply[#1 -> Times[##1] & , \$UnitList, {1}];
unitizeVariablesRep = Apply[#1 -> Divide[##1] & , \$UnitList, {1}];
dropSIUnitsRep = {Meter -> 1, Newton -> 1};
numbersToMachinePrecisionRep = x_Real :> SetPrecision[x,
MachinePrecision];
cm = Centi*Meter;
F[a_] = Subscript[F, a];
rep[1] = {H -> (1/2)*cm, L -> (5/10)*cm, A -> (8/20)*cm^2,
SectionModulus -> (4/3)*cm^4, YoungsModulus -> 10*Giga*Pascal};
rep[2] = {Centi -> 1/100, Giga -> 10^9, Pascal -> Newton/Meter^2};
eqn[1] = F[1] == A*YoungsModulus*(1 - Sqrt[1 + (X^2 - 2*H*X)/L^2]);
eqn[2] = F[cr] == (Pi^2*YoungsModulus*SectionModulus)/L^2;
eqn[3] = F == Min[eqn[1][[2]], eqn[2][[2]]];
eqn[4] = P == ((H - X)*F)/Sqrt[L^2 + X^2 - 2*H*X];
blah[1][X_] = FullSimplify[PiecewiseExpand[eqn[4][[2]] /. Rule @@
eqn[3] /. rep[1] /. rep[2] /. deUnitizeVariablesRep]]

400000*N*(-1 + 200*X + Sign[1 - 200*X])

If you have inexact numbers I believe you should use Rationalize first.
