I believe this is error occurs when the console doesn't get a reading from the gear box. while debugging a problem with the reed switch (the thing that detects motion, that you have started pedaling) I had the gearbox unplugged and it indicated error 1. once plugged back in, it was fine. possibly you have pinched/cut wires? I had this problem where the stem meets the body.

The gear box wires are red/yellow/orange for the servo positioning, and brown/black for power to move the motor.

It is squeaking.

Just remember that the number one cause of failure of the motor controller is high walking belt friction. I always make sense to replace the walking belt when you are replacing the motor controller on the Iron Man Treadmill.

There is no resistance on my ironman achiever, can this be fixed?

I have the same problem and took mine apart. There is a steel cable running from the resistance controller servo to the magnetic brake assembly and inside the assembly two more that attach to the brake shoes. In my case both of the small inside cables broke but if the main outside cable or any part along that chain broke it would have the same effect. I've emailed about replacements. Take care if you open this beast. It's a bugger. Take lots of snaps along the way sow you can see how it goes back together.
