Question about Schwinn 430 Elliptical Trainer

1 Answer

Schwinn 431 Elliptical doesn't register rpm's, distance, etc.

My new 431 Elliptical sometimes doesn't register rpm's, distance, calories, and speed ...and sometimes it will shut down after 2minutes even if I'm working on it. To keep it from shutting off, I have to touch the screen before 2minutes have passed. Neither one of these problems happens all of the time. I originally thought that it was the computer but, now I'm thinking that it isn't the computer. Any ideas? Thanks! Kelly

I have this same problem and called the customer service. The problem is that the rpm sensor is not working. It could be the sensor or something else. They had me check the connections first for the wiring harness at the top and middle and then sent me parts to work on the inside where I have my problem. I am still working on mine because the magnet was installed on the wrong side of the flywheel. Hope you don't have this issue.

    I had the same problem. Also have the magnet on the wrong side. The magnet is glued on the flywheel and won't come off without some damage. I took a magnet from my daughters magnetix play set and secured it to the proper side. I just finshed it and everything is working. I'll be using a glue that will allow me to remove the magnet if it needs to be adjusted later. I hope this helps. Your post pointed me to the magnet, thanks

How many calories can I burn on an elliptical trainer machine?


The number of caloriesyou burn is dependent on your weight and how long/what speed you work at. I weigh 135 lbs. and I burn 335 calories in ahalf an hour on an elliptical.

My precor efx 544 has stopped recognising that i am using it. does not display strides or calories burned. any ideas?


My Precor Elliptical EFX 546 Timer Stops After 7 Seconds, what is wrong? The most common cause for the Timer to Stop After 7 Seconds on a Precor Elliptical is NO RPM Feedback.
Knowing the status of the unit from its last use as well as the last service or part replacement is a great place to start.
Check the connection of the speed sensor to the lower board. Reset connection if necessary.
Check the magnet. The magnet is located on the user's right crank arm on versions 1 and 2 and the user's left on version 3. The magnet passes the speed sensor with each revolution of the crank arm. The magnet should be installed so that its south pole is facing the speed sensor. You can check the magnet polarity with another magnet that has marked poles or a compass. The north pole of the marked magnet or the south facing needle should be attracted to the magnet. Correct magnet installtion if necessary.
You may also check the spacing of the speed sensor to the magnet. The spacing should be 1/8" to 1/4". Adjust if necessary.

My Schwinn 431 Elliptical rpm sensor is not working. I talked to customer service and they sen me new parts and pictures. I'd call them today but they only work M-F. anyway, it looks like the flywheel...


I took a magnet from a magnetix toy and secured it to the correct side of the flywheel. It's working now...I just finshed doing it. Hopefully it'll continue working. Thanks for pointing out the magnet was on the wrong side.

Was given a Schwinn spin bike Model DX 900. Has electronic "counter" for miles, calories, etc., changed batteries and now won't work.


Sometimes taking them out looking at the Battery holder for corrosion first then check if the batteries are in the right way ( I've made that mistake ) Also the wire that leads down to the sensor and see if its adjusted correctly
