Question about Schwinn 430 Elliptical Trainer

1 Answer

The console does not work. E-2 shows up on the console.

Just bought a Schwinn 430 elliptical and the console ways E-2 when plugged in. It will not move to programs, heart rate or anything else. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it?

    I get the same message just a few seconds into the program and lose all settings - resistance, etc. I've tried pulling the power plug and re-inserting it, and hitting reset, but it does it all over again.

We had this problem after assembly as well, it turned out to be a bent pin inside the connector to the flywheel housing (where the wires connect inside the lower part of the main mast). It was so bent that it never actually made contact with the connector.

We straightened the pin, carefully reconnected the wires, and everything worked just fine.

This says to us that the "E-2" error message means the console is missing at least one connection from the system. This could be caused by a bent pin, a torn/cut/frayed wire, etc -- anything that might make it lose signal.

So check the lower connection for bent pins, check the upper connection for bent pins, and check all along the wires for any kind of damage.

Hope this helps!

    Is there a video anywhere that shows how to fix this? I too am having issues with the E-2 message. The unit is almost five years old and has done this from the very beginning. Lately, it's become more frequent and annoying.

Hello, I own a Schwinn Elliptical 430 which I keep outside, covered with a tarp, since 2011. It's been fine till now, the "Enter" button isn't responding so basically I can't use it because I can't move on...


HI,
Its probably because of the enter switch is not activating. Its contacts gone bad. There will be push switch behind the enter pad that you see from the top. you have to replace this by opening the Console, Display. if you are able to do the same please let me know .
Or just remove the Console, Display and take it to the nearest electronic rearing shop. They can do it very easily. and it will not cost a lot too.

Do you think the power cord is going bad? If so here is the parts list for the Schwinn 430 if you need to order a new AC adaptor. If you think the connection inside the machine is going bad you may want to find a servicer to look at it.

Call Nautilus @ 800-NAUTILUS (800-628-8458) if it is only the console mast and their is no more extensive damage to the lower frame and if the part is still available it might be worth your wild to repair the unit. If not junk the unit!!!

Follow this link and you can download the owners manual as well as the exploded parts schematics. There will be information about the different years. other than the consoles they have remained the same for 20 + years. If you ever need to replace the bottom bearing be sure to get the lock ring as well. It changed from left hand thread to right. Thats it. You can also upgrade the console to the newer version. A little expensive but with proper care a 20 year old Airdyne will last till the frame rusts out from under it.

Follow this link for step by step instructions. Note you will need a crank puller which you can purchase at most bike shops. remove both covers then crank weldment(discs).
