My Ironman Achiever Elliptical Trainer is now making clanking noises, the foot tread is scraping the right side, and the whole thing feels unstable, as if some internal workings have sheared off (as happened previously with the drive shaft). The original warranty service was amazingly slow and unreliable, and the warranty is now over. How can I find a skillful repair service in the Sacramento area?

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.
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.
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.
