Question about Schwinn 430 Elliptical Trainer

1 Answer

I am trying to remove the covers on my Schwinn 418 elliptical trainer. The covers hang up on the crank/flywheel. The repair manual says to use a crank puller. Is there another way. If not what type of crank puller do I need and do I have to remove the nut that is on the axle. Thank you

Hello there. Unfortunatley there is no way other than removing the crank arms. You do need to remove the nut on the axle and you will need a crank puller. The puller is available at any local bicycle shop for around 10-15 dollars.
Good Luck Tim

Error code 1 on schwinn elliptical 418 how do I fix it. I have replace batteries and unplugged unit. Error 1 shows up as soon as I turn unit on.


E1 error seems to indicate that the servo which controls the elliptical resistance is stuck. Here is how I fixed this (without using a "crank puller", which would be quicker by far).

You will need a very short phillips screw driver (snub nose), a long phillips screw driver, an allen key set, and crescent wrench.

- Remove the batteries from the unit.
- Remove the screws from the plastic housing (with the long phillips screw driver) on the left side. Do not forget the phillips screws at the front - they are smaller screws so don't mix them with the others. This will allow the plastic housing to flex and move around, but not come entirely off.
- Using the crescent wrench, remove the nut holding the left pedal to the crank. Carefully note the order of the washers on the crank attachment.
- Using the allen key, remove the little pedal attachment piece on the left crank arm.
- Using the short phillips screw driver, carefully reach inside the plastic housing on the top and remove the four screws holding the plastic plate on the outside of the fly wheel/crank. You will need to rotate the crank wheel to reach each of the four screws in turn on the inside of the case.
- Pull off the plastic cover for the wheel.
- Reinsert batteries and gently help the revealed cable (bottom) retract the magnet plate. In my case, the servo worked fine again after helping it retract the magnet plate that was somehow stuck/wedged.

Reverse steps to re-assemble.

The flywheel is becoming uneven on one side and making noise while rotating. I don't see any where I can adjust the bolts. Any tips?


reove the center black plug and tighten bolt. If this problem has persisted then the crank hub shaft could be worn and need to be replaced. If the plastic is seperating then a screw inside has come out or broken. They are accessed by removing the covers from the opposite side. you may be able to get to them without having to purchase a crank puller and remove crank weldment.
